What I Wore to Alaska

What I Wore to Alaska

It as super nice and relaxing in Alaska, my family and I decided to go on a week long Alaskan cruise with my extended family. Talk about a family reunion for the first time in ten years! 

We went on the Norwegian cruise and it was breathtaking. Here are some stopping points during our cruise trip:

 Day 1:Seattle 

Day 2: Cruise day 

Day 3: Juneau

  • Sight recommendation: Mendenhall glacier Explorer
  • A shuttle bus will drive you to the foot of a national park and do a tour overlooking the glacier. They also give you around 2.5 hours to check out the hikes and the glacier.

Day 4: Skagway 

  • White Pass Scenic Railway
  • Amazingly scenic train ride through the mountains of Skagway, Alaska.

Day 5: Glacier Bay

  • This was one of my favorite stops on the cruise, as the cruise ship toured around the different glaciers in the bay. I recall waking up early to head to the gym, and the treadmill was facing the most beautiful glacier I had ever seen.

Day 6 Ketchikan

  • This cute town is known for their Native American totem poles and it is the southernmost entrance to Alaska's passage.

Day 7 British Columbia 

  • Our cruise ship arrived in Canada at 8 PM, and it was quite late. Our family booked a shuttle tour around British Columbia and paid $200 USD for it. I highly DO NOT recommend doing this. Instead, take an Uber and explore the different unique parts of British Columbia during the allotted time.

 Day 8: Back in Seattle 

  • During your return to Seattle, I highly recommend getting a later flight so you can explore the city. Our family decided to get a hotel room and leave  our 20 pieces of luggage there while we chose to explore the beautiful Pike Place.
