Thumbs up Great review

Thanks for the great Alaska cruise review!
I want to do another Alaskan cruise and felt like I was there with your pictures!

Default Hello

Glad to hear you enjoyed your 1st solo cruise.
Makes it a lot easier for your 2nd, 3rd, and so on.


After going on the Epic, the Dawn may seem a bit
tame. But it is a beautiful ship..

I really enjoyed reading about your cruise. I am going on my first cruise in 2013 to Alaska. I will be going solo, so I really appreciate everything everyone posts.
