Default alaska

dear nan: I've spent a few hours perusing the cruises; cheapest is doing a 7 day inside passage from Vancouver to Skagway, stopping in Ketch & juneau & Prince rup... however, a Northbound or southbound spends half a day in Glacier bay & some narrow gorge too on the way to Seward or Whittier (can go to Anchorage or Denali park closeby). You would either have to take another cruise back, fly back on some open jaw, or alaska ferry (marine hwy) which is almost as expensive as a cruise, but you can stop anywhere you want, but it's sometimes not very convenient on arrival times. I've been to Eugene, went to some festival when I lived a bit in Portland & thru hiked the PCT. I am leaning toward a caribbean cruise... cheap to fly into Barbados & lots of cruises do the good islands from there... or might do alaska. sincerely, David of Houston
