7 DAY ALASKA CRUISE

ON NCL BLISS

June 3-10 2023

One of the most scenic and thrilling cruises is Alaska, and this 7-day itinerary even includes Icy Strait Point and its wilderness experiences. Just outside of Juneau is where you’ll find the majestic Mendenhall Glacier. Walk the nature trails and explore the Visitor Center with its view of the Juneau Ice Field. Icy Strait Point is home to the largest Native Tlingit village in the state and its waters are teeming with wildlife, including orcas and humpbacks. Since every shop at Icy Strait Point is Native-owned, this is the place for authentic goods and handicrafts. Your last port is Victoria, the oldest city in the Pacific Northwest. With its green spaces and Victorian architecture, it is stunning. See Butchart Gardens and the stately Craigdarroch Castle.

14 Day Thailand -Choice of Two Trips
Feb. 19 -March 4, 2023 March 12-25, 2023

It’s official! We are going back to Thailand! This time, however, we have customized the trip to include things we did not see or do on past trips, and the itinerary is exclusively by our agency’s design. We are very excited because we have hand selected hotels and tours, and it will include a great culmination of culture, temples, food, waterfalls, elephants, tigers, WWII history, nature, a tea ceremony, shopping night markets, and the indigenous women of the hill country (long necked women). We have sole use of the motorcoach.

The land dates are February 19-March 4, 2023 (air date leaves on February 17) or March 12-25, 2023 (air date leaves on March 10). Kathy will be escorting the first trip, and Lois and Susan will be escorting the second one in March.

 

Both tours are the same with the exception of the dates.
