On board activities to help you plan and get the most out of your week of exploration include on board naturalists, a special program by the US Forest Service in Ketchikan and a visit from Iditarod champion Libby Riddles in Juneau.[/font] [/font][font=Times New Roman]Like to go for a swim?

[color=teal][b][font=Times New Roman][size=3]I'm also working with a tour operator friend to offer a group of excursions at a set price, a[/size][/font][font=Times New Roman][size=3]sort of a "pick & choose" that will be totally optional AND on hotel rates for our group in [/size][/font][size=3][font=Times New Roman]Seattle for two nights prior to the cruise for anyone who would like to come in early and enjoy this wonderful city!
