An Alaskan cruise. Imagine that!
We took a Princess Cruise from Vancouver to Whittier, then continued on land to Denali and the on to Fairbanks.
The itinerary was pretty basic:
Day 1: We left Pellston Airport at 6:30 AM July 27, through Detroit to Vancouver, BC. We boarded the Choral Princess, met up with the rest of the family, and the ship left port that evening.
Day 2, Tuesday: At sea all day
Day 3, Wednesday: Spent the morning and early afternoon in Ketchikan
Day 4, Thursday: All day in Juneau
Day 5, Friday: See the sights of Skagway
Day 6/7, Saturday and Sunday: Scenic cruising on Glacier Bay and Scenic Fjord
Day 8, Monday: Whittier to Talkeetna by train, then to Mt. McKinley
Day 9, Tuesday: McKinley to Denali
Day 10, Wednesday: Denali to Fairbanks, including a sternwheeler riverboat cruise
Day 11, Thursday: Travel home Fairbanks - Minneapolis - Detroit - Pellston. If only it had worked that well. We did not make it home on day 11. You'll have to read the story about days 11, 12, 13 and 14.
We finally made it home, now you should go there, too.
