We're sailing to Alaska on HAL's Amsterdam on September 7. The docs are in, piles of what to take has started, and we're counting the days. We leave early, fly to Seattle for a few days, then on to Victoria for 4 days. Back to Seattle again and then it's time to board. We really wanted to go on a Med cruise butr the one we booked a year ago was cancelled. We weren't sure about cruising to Alaska, but are getting more and more excited everyday. I've cruised the Agean, Caribbean and Pacific (Hawaii), but this will be my first trip cruising to Alaska (I've visted Anchorage a few times).
