We sail on our first cruise in exactly 2 months! Alaska was our first choice, actually our only consideration. We are sailing on the Prinsedam, a rather SMALL ship compared to others. I believe it only carries around 790 passengers total. Have booked a few excursions on our own. Still deciding on a few other excursions in a few ports. Our cruise is a 14 night R/T from San Francisco. Keeping fingers crossed that we don't find out we suffer from seasickness. Already have our prescriptions for patches, which we will put on the day before we embark. Happy sailing to all. The count down is on!!!!
