Sail Away to Alaska

Have you always wanted to go on a cruise? Luscious meals, pampering, exotic destinations, exciting excursions.....and more! how about combining your cruise with a quilting adventure? Wouldn't that make it even better?

Scottie Dog Quilts has teamed up with Royal Caribbean Lines to offer you the trip of a lifetime. We'll be sailing to Alaska August 7-14, 2009. We'll leave from the port of Seattle, WA and travel up Alaska's Inland Passage (that means lots of unforgettable scenery and calm waters!) to several ports. We'll see Skagway, Juneau, the glaciers at Tracy Arm Fjord and spend a day in Victoria, BC.

While the ship is out to sea there will be a variety of quilting classes you can choose from. Teachers will be Liz Scott Adams and BrendaLou Scott from Scottie Dog Quilts and guest
teacher, Bev Harrison of Eugene, OR. Projects will be available for beginning through advanced quilters.

In Skagway you can explore the Klondike Gold Rush National Historic District or take a train ride. There are many tours you can join everything from hiking, to horseback riding, to boating expeditions.

At the Tracy Arm Fjord you might spot an iceberg toppling off the face of a glacier and crashing into the water; the fuzzy silhouette of a whale gliding under the water's surface; or a polar bear searching for prey through a hole in the ice. Alaska is considered by many the last American frontier; see it as it was before men existed.
In Juneau, Alaska's capitol city, you can eat at the Red Dog Saloon, shop at the Rain Tree Quilt Shop for Alaskan themed fabrics, go deep sea fishing and more.
There is still time to sign up. Now that the holidays are over, you might just thing about pampering yourself for a quilting vacation! This is a very reasonably priced cruise and Alaska is magnificent. You can come with a friend or bring along the family. There is lots to keep them busy while you quilt and you can explore the ports-o-call together.
our all inclusive prices are :
Inside Room: $1199.00
Outside Room: $1399.00
Balcony Room: $2049.00

Staterooms are beginning to fill up so if you *think* you might want to go it would pay to put down your FULLY REFUNDABLE deposit as soon as possible.

You can contact our travel agent, MJ Bryant at (888) 278-7875 or email her
It would be so much fun to travel together to Alaska.

Brenda - I traveled to Juneau in 2008, what a beautiful little town! I enjoyed our trip to Changing Tides, a small quilt shop right in the heart of downtown Juneau. They had a marvelous selection of Alaska themed fabrics, quilt kits and I loved their panels featuring the Alaskan artist Barbara Lavallee. What a fantastic cruise! Enjoy your 2009 excursion!
