The Long View and Reviewing the Week 6

Please click on this panoramic shot of Carmarthenshire to view it on a larger scale as it should be. It wasn’t a day of beautiful sunshine but you still get to see the patchwork of files that makes up so much of the Welsh landscape if you are not in the mountains.

WOW! Time to think about bookings for Alaska

The two cruise lines that dominate the Alaska market are Princess and Holland America. Both were pioneers of sailing to Alaska and both operate the most ships out of homeports in Vancouver and Seattle.

Although there are some exceptions, most cruises either return to their homeports or are one-ways between Anchorage and the southern cities. One-ways also offer add-ons into places north like Denali National Park.

Today, I have some picks for next spring and fall. All fares are per person and starting prices. Besides these, Princess has several cruises out of San Francisco to Alaska — you can check all Princess cruises at princess.com

Here’s a one-way cruise for 7 days…

May 18
Seward (Anchorage) to Vancouver: 7 days
Holland America’s Oosterdam
Ports: Glacier Bay (cruising), Haines, Juneau, Ketchikan
Starting price: $652
