I have a friend who is a nun and therefore on a very limited budget. For her 40th anniversary as a religious woman, she would like to travel to Alaska with her mother next year. Having taken a cruise myself this summer (July 14-21) and thoroughly enjoying it, I would like to see her be able to have that same experience with coastlines, glaciers, good food, and pampering. I would also like to see them go during the summer when the salmon are running and wildlife viewings are easy. Since this will probably be her only trip to Alaska, would like to see them go into Denali and maybe even ride the train to Fairbanks or anything else that is worthwhile. She can take as long as a two week vacation. Any suggestions on the best way to do any or all of this on a limited budget? Please give me as many details as possible, i.e., names of places, phone #s, prices, etc.
Thanks so much!--Bonnie
