Introduction to Canada and Alaska


Our first cruise based holiday. In a word, 'Breathtaking!'.

We have a friend who lives on Vancouver Island and  Wendy and I visited years ago. That time we hired a car and did a circular tour of British Columbia including Vancouver, Whistler, Jasper, Banff, and back to Vancouver.  That trip was all self arranged. Whereas this holiday was almost totally prearranged, as to be expected for a cruise holiday. However, Princess Cruises allow flexibility to extend your holiday at either end of the cruise. We decided to arrive early in Vancouver. This would have the dual benefit of a visit to our friend and of allowing time to relax and wind down from the flight and work so that we were already chilled at the start of the cruise.

Capilano Suspension Bridge

At the other end of the cruise we added a cruisetour which was effectively a coach tour. We selected Off the Beaten Path - Tour KA6 which resulted in a 13 day combined cruise and cruisetour.

I will arrange this site accordingly with sections on the outbound, Vancouver, the cruise, the cruisetour, and the homebound.

But all of this is in a sub-site. Press the link below to start your tour.
