Amazing and Engaging!!!!

Can i just say WOW!!!! I just sat here and read thru your entire trip report....and i want to thank you. We are booked on the members cruise to Alaska in may 2015 and after reading your report I wish we were leaving tomorrow.
I love your descriptions of each port, and your pictures are part amazing and breathtaking...

I was on the fence about Alaska, booked because my husband solo wanted to go and i love to cruise, and after your trip report i am now counting the days.

Hope you won't mind when i pester you with questions when i start to plan!

Thank you so much, I'm glad you enjoyed reading it.

You will love Alaska and the time will fly by. Don't worry about the questions, I will be happy to help if I can.

I'm a little late, but just wanted to say "thanks" for the great trip report! We were in room 7618 on our Alaskan cruise in 2012 and loved it. I loved seeing your pictures, especially Sitka which we didn't get to visit. Now I really want to go back!

Thanks! Yeah, we really want to go back too! Some day.

We loved 7618 and especially love being near the aft of the ship.

Finished reading your entire report!!!

I finished reading your report. I couldn't stop! I think I found your TR Saturday evening. I loved all of your photos! I feel compelled to comment, but I don't know where to start. I will try my best.

One day we hope to have our family of 4 do a DCL Alaskan cruise. I admit, I love tropical weather... that's my idea of a cruise. My DH REALLY wants to go on one. I've been reading Alaskan TR's and now I'm tempted. We already have 2 short cruises booked for next year. We're thinking for 2016 we will either do our home resort Aulani or DVC cruise (hopefully they'll repeat Alaska like they are doing in 2015). By then, DD will be almost 9 and DS will be 5. I would just worry about the terrain and all the walking.

I loved your nature photos. You did such a great job explaining the background and I loved the images. I loved seeing the whales, seals, eagles, and especially the orcas. I loved seeing the beautiful scenery. The blue in the ice was especially amazing.

I had to show my DH about how yours went on that excursion of deadliest catch. He would TOTALLY do that!

I would also stay at the Pan Pacific and hopefully Wonder would embark and disembark at Canada Place.

Thanks again for sharing!

Thank you so much for your kind words. I'm glad you enjoyed my report. I think you should give into your DH and go to Alaska, you won't regret it. I guess it depends on excursions you choose, but I think we spent more time on the water than we did walking. The walking wasn't bad because it was mostly on level ground. I think you're kids would get a kick out of Alaska. I know my 13 year old loved it!

I would go back to Vancouver again in a heartbeat. It was a great city and we only saw a very small part of it.

Thank you so very much for taking the time to do this wonderful trip report. I have just started planning my daughter's post 8th grade trip (she's in 6th now), and I can't think of a more wonderful gift than this very cruise. I have relatives doing Alaska June 2015 on Princess, but after reading your trip I just don't think I could bring myself to not do Disney. I think I would miss my magic!

I will definitely be looking forward to your next TR. I've subbed to this thread, so I won't lose you! Thanks again, especially for sharing your photos. They are stunning!

Thanks for reading!

I actually booked directly with the Pan Pacific about 11 months out and got a AAA rate.

You'll love Alaska!
