Booked our first ever cruise!!

So excited! We booked our first cruise yesterday. And we decided to just jump in with both feet. We're booked for Alaska in 2014.

Now I get the next 15+ months to research and plan and figure it all out.

Just had to share my excitement.

Have fun,

There is a very informatiove thread on Vancouver itself that is well worth reading. (started by Lollipop's mom)

Also a shorter one on Seattle if you are going there (started by NWMOM)

A lot of the research you might want is there. I know the Vancouver one helped me tremendously in planning when we went.

The Seattle one was for 2012 -the year it left from there and for those that decide to fly into SEA instead of Vancouver to save money.

Have a great trip

Hope that helps.

Also bookmark them as they tend to sink back in the pages.

My TA told us last year when we booked our WDW trip that we should think about doing a cruise, especially when I mentioned that our 10th anniversary was coming up. So we started thinking a short Caribbean cruise or Bahamas. And then we saw the Alaska info and a friend started campaigning for that one so we could all go together. And here we are!
