By ship only in the Summer but watch out for the mosquitos which fairly fierce but not malarial. Late Spring can also be attractive. Go inland to see the contrasting scenery.

We are seasoned HAL cruisers and have been to Alaska a few times over the last 18 yrs, all with HAL and all during the school holidays July and August.We've cruised Vancouver to Vancouver, Vancouver to Anchorage and taken a land tour from Anchorage. The weather can be varied, wet/dryish,cool/warm and inland,hot so just take layers and you will be fine late spring through to early autumn although bear in mind our early autumn can mean the start of winter and snow in Anchorage.We must have been lucky as mozzies have not been a problem although as I am the equivalent of xmas dinner to them, I do use a repellent [Boots silver topped 50% deet] when in forests/national parks. HAL has become more 'child friendly' over the years on certain ships/routes during school holidays so that might be a factor to think about.There is just so much to see and we are thinking of our next cruise to Alaska, this time without children so spring or early autumn will be our target months. As in the past HAL will be our cruise line.Have fun.

Its that time of the year, Christmas has gone and its time to start planning for next year. We often host everyone at our house being that Chris is a chef its kind of expected. Well not in 2017, we have just booked a week on Royal Caribbean Allure of the Seas. I cannot wait! I have been on Harmony and Anthem but always with work and only for 2 nights so its not the same experience as being on board with your family for the week.Then comes the decision do we stay in Miami or Fort Lauderdale?

This Is What True Love Looks Like!

By Amy Ginder

Happy Valentines day! I hope you are feeling the love today. I thought that I would share a romantic love story which dates back to 1912. This was the year that the Titanic tragically sank, leaving only 705 survivors.On the 10th April 2012 the Titanic sailed from Southampton, there were 2,200 passengers onboard many looking to live a new life in America. We have all watched the film Titanic right? I am not talking about Jack and Rose (boring, the pair of them) I am referring to Ida Straus and...
