Alaska / Canada and N.E.

Checking in:

I booked two cruises for 2019. Think it’s only going to be two next year.

Alaska Cruise on the Star Princess, June 2 2019. Out of Seattle.

Canada/N.E. on the NCL Escape Sept. 22 2019. Out of New York.

I’m nervous about the New York one since it’ll be totally new to me sailing out of the east coast and I’m worried about the logistics of it all. But I’m excited too since it will be a fun adventure.

Sounds like the Escspe is a fun ship to be on from what I’ve read. Will be my first time on a “mega sized” ship.

I read that embarkation out of New York is a pain in the ark.

Star out of Seattle won’t be a big deal until I get up to Alaska. I’ve been on the Star’s sister ship Grand. I booked excursions for each Alaska stop. I know already that trip is going to be awesome!

Any input from others about the two ships, embarkation ports, or destinations?

Welcome back. Missed you! Your adventures sound exciting and I eagerly await your reviews.

Excellent - hopefully the leaves will have color in the north east

Alaska Cruise paid off! Now for the Canada/N.E.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Might just be peaking. We live in N. WI and this Fall was pretty strange. It looked like it was going to peak early. It peaked a little late and then it only lasted a couple days before we got snow! We are doing Canada/NE in October, starting in Quebec and ending in Ft. Lauderdale.
