Our Alaska Cruise

Hello everyone. We're excited to tell you all about our seven day-three port cruise to Alaska!


Boarding the ship was a snap with our Briggs & Riley luggage.  We each took a Large Expandable Spinner and a 21” Global Carry-On Spinner. Jen also brought her Baseline Traveler Tote and Tony brought his trusty Pacsafe Metrosafe X Anti-Theft Vertical Crossbody

During our days at sea, when not watching whales (which we saw every day), we would begin  with a visit to the hot tub and enjoy stunning views passing us by. Then Jen would take her cold pool plunge.

We’d spend the rest of the morning enjoying the Spa.  The thermal and relaxation lounges were the perfect restful bliss we were looking for in between our massages and pedicures.
The afternoons were spent in the Crows Nest Lounge, high above the bridge, playing cards and enjoying the mountains of Alaska passing us by.
Each evening we enjoyed dinner at one of the four fantastic restaurants the ship had to offer.  The Pinnacle Grill was our favourite, it’s the ultimate steak house at sea! 
After dinner we enjoyed a show at in the World Stage if we weren’t enjoying live music in the Billboard Lounge or the Rolling Stones Lounge. 
Then it was back to our room for a nightcap together on our balcony.
Our three port visits included Sitka, Juneau, and Ketchikan. In Sitka we went for a walk, did a little shopping, and enjoyed some peanut butter whiskey (which was awesome). 
From Juneau we took a helicopter tour up to the Mendenhall glacier where we spent an hour enjoying more great scenery and learning about the history, and future, of the glacier.

After our glacier adventure, we took an amazing Pedicab tour with James, the owner of Alaska Pedicab Tours whose expertise in the history and culture of Juneau is second to none!

 Our third and final port visit was Ketchikan where we took an ATV tour followed by a boat trip up to George Lodge for an amazing Crab Bake lunch.

 On the shores of the George Inlet near Ketchikan, there is no bad weather!  Tony used his KÜHL Stretch Voyager rain jacket to keep out the damp and Jen kept dry in her C-Ro Magic rain coat.

If you haven’t guessed it by now, we would highly recommend a Holland America cruise to Alaska.
