II had a blast, third time to Alaska and this was my favourite trip. We flew from Seattle to Anchorage and spent a few days at Denali before the cruise to Vancouver. I"ve put together the pictures and a travelogue on my site.
I have started making a list of some suggested reading for anyone doing this vacation or some other ones I have enjoyed. You can see my pictures etc. at
Thanks for the reference to your travelogue. Great pics. We are taking this same intinerary on the Sun Princess beginning August 16.
Can you answer a question. What time did the ship depart Whittier? We are driving ourselves in through the tunnel probably 6:30 to 7:30PM. Did you happen to even notice if others were boarding that late. I'm trying to get a comfort-level that the ship will leave no earlier than the published 9:30PM.
