That has been our plan for some time. But in poking around I found a trip we can't miss, and the price for early booking is really good.
In September 2013 we do the last northbound cruise from Vancouver to Anchorage on Diamond Princess. Then from Anchorage she sails six days across the Pacific, crossing the Date Line. She visits Japan, Korea, Valadisvostok, and China and finishes in Beijing where we will probably do several days post cruise.
Mike, How wonderful for a nice long cruise....I am still up in the air about Alaska next summer, wanted to do a one way from Anchorage to Vancouver....or....WDW??? Guess we'll have to decide soon in order to get any decent prices, it is just the air fare that scares me...Glad you booked!
