Note from Travel Gal: As you can see below, quite often my Clients contact me for assistance with their trip in another part of the world after working with me initially for the South Pacific.  They are very happy with my contacts all over the world - of which I can brag due to the fact I am with a fantastic Virtuoso Travel Agency - Park Avenue Travel.  We have an intricate network of associates worldwide.  Contact me at 800 644-6659 or Teresa@Luxuryhideaways.net to assist you with your travel plans - where do you want to go?

We had a great time aboard Holland America, though I’m not sure we are “cruise people”.   We had great shore excursions: Zip Line in Ketchikan (very fun, a bear walked under our zipline while on platform), Helicopter ride to Mendenhall glacier for dog sledding, Floatplane sightseeing, Evening whale watching in Juneau (3 things in one day, a lot of fun, good time), and lastly helicopter to Laughton valley to hike then catch train back to Skagway (again a great time).  Holland America was very good.   They have a good process for getting you onto and off of the ship.  They did a great job with the luggage.   We didn’t really like the buffet areas, but it was ok.   We saw a lot of whales (which I loved), but I wish we would have seen more bears.  We really lucked out and had great weather.   We didin’t have any rain until our last day in Anchorage.  Both Ketchikan and Juneau were sunny and warm.   Skagway overcast but no rain.   I want to go back sometime to do a bear excursion.  Someone I worked with did that outside of Seward in early September near the end of the salmon run which brings great bear viewing.   I would love to do that someday.   I have no doubt we will go back, just don’t know that it will be with that type of cruise line (I think we would like something smaller and more adventure, younger set).

Overall, it was great trip.   My daughter enjoyed it too.

Thanks for helping us get everything arranged.   We really appreciate how quickly you responded and helped us get things arranged. I think Dave and I want to either go to Ireland or on an African Safari next year.    It will be our five year anniversary (can you believe how fast time flies?).   We were thinking about going back to Fiji, but then started thinking why not experience something new.  Have you been to Ireland or on a Safari?

Best Regards and thanks for asking!
