Since 1999 we have returned to Alaska a number of times. And each and every time this Great Land continues to amaze. We've cruised the Inside Passage and the Gulf of Alaska before. This time we chose to visit the interior of Alaska, at the end of Summer , in September. This is the time of the year, when the kids are back in school, the weather is mild and many cruise travelers take advantage of reduced rates just before every hotel, lodge, restaurant and gift shop shuts down for the winter.
On this trip we visit Anchorage, Fairbanks, and Denali National Park. We also chose both Princess Rail and the Alaska Railroad's 'Gold Star" service and coach transportation to get us from place to place. We chose Princess Wilderness lodge accommodations as Princess offers over 26 land tours designed around its own custom-built lodges. We included the most popular sightseeing tours, including the more in-depth Tundra Wilderness Tour of the six million acre, Denali National Park and the Gold Dredge 8 and Discovery River Boat cruise in Fairbanks. Thus, giving our fellow travelers a well-rounded look at what they can expect when they visit Alaska.
This is a trip report of our land portion of a cruise tour that would involve a 7 day North or Southbound Alaska Cruise from Vancouver to Anchorage or from Anchorage to Vancouver, plus a 7 day land tour. Princess Cruise Ships that tie into this land tour are Island Princess, Coral Princess or Star Princess. Read full review: http://goo.gl/6QaG6N
