My wife and I just returned from an 8 day cruise to Alaska. We had an Alaska cruise scheduled in May 2020 and then the pandemic hit. So, two years later we finally got to set sail! We had never been to Alaska and we thoroughly enjoyed this trip. The scenery was spectacular and the wildlife was abundant. The views from the ship alone were worth the price of the trip. We saw waterfalls, bald eagles and a lot of whales from the ship. Onshore we saw bald eagles, bears and salmon. The weather was very nice with high temperatures of 65 or less. We expected more rain, but were lucky we only go a little rain at one stop in Ketchikan. Our ports were Icy Point Strait, Skagway, Juneau, Ketchikan and Victoria, Canada. We cruised up the Tracy Arm Fjord and took a small boat excursion up close to the Sawyer Glacier. That excursion was incredible and we saw icebergs, waterfalls, seals and one black bear. If you ever get a chance, I highly recommend at least one cruise to Alaska! This is what retirement is all about!
Have you had any recent travels or have anything planned in the near future? Do you feel safe enough to get out these days? We have been vaccinated and double boosted, plus we had a dose of COVID so we feel pretty confident we won't get deathly ill from COVID at this time.
