World Travel – Alaska 1999 (Part II)

After completing the Land portion of our trip we got on board the cruise ship Sea Princess to start our Inside Passage. We saw some great ocean wildlife and many a glaciers along with some nice ports where we travelled inland including a visit into Canada’s Yukon Territory. We ended our cruise at Vancouver, British Columbia Canada. Can’t wait to do this again; but, I wonder what global warming has done since we were there…

As part of a Princes Cruises Line package we got hocked up behind the Alaska Railroad for a couple of days and saw some of the most amazing scenery.

Our 4th TCC entry came in 1999 when we took a combination Land / Cruise tour; starting with the Land section. We started by flying into Anchorage and slowly enjoyed many of the regions sites and we moved north to Fairbanks. We also traveled via the Alaska RR for a bit!
