...but don't expect too much in the way of a report!
Herself and I are going on another Olivia cruise! A colleague of one of Herself's nieces bid on and won a cruise during a charity auction. She had no idea what Olivia meant (teeeheee) and when she found out, she decided she needed to sell it! So, enter Niece who just happened to know two people...
So! Lucky us, we were able to purchase a very nice cruise for a very reasonable amount. :D
We are going on the Majestic Alaskan cruise out of Vancouver, BC in September. As neither of us have ever been to Vancouver we are taking some days before the cruise to go early and explore a very beautiful city.
We are staying at a lovely boutique hotel, about five minutes walk from the pier.
We are still deciding on flights. We can fly from MCO to Vancouver of course, or we can fly out of Tampa. If we do that we can get rid of our luggage in Tampa and not see it again until we are on board!
Or we can fly out of MCO (or Tampa) to Seattle, WA and then take the Cascade train to Vancouver.
The only reason I'd like to do that is to visit Salumi, Mario Battali's father's salumi shop in Seattle. :D Yep, it's always about food with me.
But, I get motion sick on trains (weird, I know). I can take Dramamine though...
So, decisions to make on that yet.
We'll have to get Herself some warm footwear. I have boots from when I traveled the east coast, but she's not had any since we came here. We'll need some other warm things too, but don't want to end up buying things we'll not ever use again.
Ports of call will be Juneau, Skagway and Ketchikan. Quite similar to Disney.
We've not decided what we want to do at each port yet, but we have loads of time to figure that out.
My profile photo is from our last Olivia cruise. :D Of course, Canada allows marriage between two consenting adults. :D :D :D
