Alaska!

Alaskan Quilting Cruise 2009

I am getting so excited about our August 7-14, 2009 Alaskan Cruise. I've been on a quilting cruise before and it was so much fun, so much to see and do that when Scottie Dog Quilts decided to sponsor a Quilting Cruise, we knew that Alaska's Inside Passage was THE place we wanted to go. Royal Caribbean has a lovely cruise ship for us with all the amenities.
Unlike most cruises, when you cruise up the Alaskan Inside Passage you have beautiful scenery on both sides of the ship almost the entire time you are sailing! Imagine seeing whales, seal lions, bald eagles, spawning salmon runs, bears, moose and more! The glaciers are magnificent----I had no idea how awed I would be sailing right up next to a blue, so very icy blue wall of ice 20 stories high! Incredible.
We will be able to quilt for three days when we are "out to sea" and so be available to explore all the ports and take any excursions we might find interesting.
Our ports of call will be Skagway, Juneau, Tracy Arm Fjord and Victoria, BC. So much to see and do! PLUS you can choose three different quilting projects while we sail. You'll still have time to see the shows, go to the spa, swim or whatever your heart desires. In port, the local Quilt Shops will have specials for us .Bring your husband, your family or a non-quilting friend as they are welcome too.
We have a block of staterooms reserved at very special prices, but these rates are only guaranteed through the middle of August. After that they may go up. To reserve your room contact our wonderful travel agent: MJ Bryant at (800) 278-7875 or email: MJBryant@ak2travel.com
