It was a dream of mine to see Alaska…and in September that dream became a reality when I had the most amazing adventure aboard the Golden Princess on a cruise to the Inside Passage. There were so many activities on the ship, so I was always able to find something fun to do. One of the most exciting places on board was the Piazza. While I was there, I felt like I was sitting at a sidewalk café in Europe. Street performers juggled, danced, and performed magic tricks. And there was always really good food at the international café.
But the highlights of our trip to Alaska were the visits to the ports and our excursions…one which included whale watching! But the best excursion was the helicopter ride to the glacier in Skagway. The ride over gave us the most amazing views and I was lucky enough to sit beside the pilot…which was the best view of all. A guide met our helicopter and took us on a hike around the glacier. The glacier was beautiful and I am so glad I got to see it up close.
This was one of my most memorable vacations and a trip I would recommend to everyone.
