Talking Diamond SB Alaska - Countdown begins!

Final payment was made yesterday so we are officially going on our first cruise! The vacation starts towards the end of May. A few days in Anchorage before the land tour begins....McKinley/Denali, train to Whittier, 7 day cruise (in a suite!), a few days in Vancouver (the Pan or The Four Seasons...?) before we head home! Booking excursions through Princess...we just like the security blanket for our first cruise. Excursions include Devils Canyon, Tundra Wilderness, dog sledding on Mendenhall and Eagle Island sea kayaking in Ketchikan. Skagway is currently open and I don't have backup plans yet should anything get canceled...still thinking that through.

All the info here on CC has been great! Thank you!
