7 day Alaskan cruise

With now only 4 weeks to go, today I received information from Holland America cruise line regarding the 7 day Inside Passage Alaskan cruise that is part of the larger Evergreen Tour.

I completed all the required log in details and excitedly browsed through the 'optional' shore excursions. While I have been told that we will probably see whales just by being on the cruise ship, Eurodam (no, I'm not swearing - that's its name), I selected a small group whale watching tour for when we are ashore at Juneau. The tour involves (obviously) going out on a boat looking for whales and then a 1 mile hike (although I think it's more just like a walk) through a nature trail so that we can view the Mendenhall Glacier.

The other shore excursion I booked is a lumberjack show in Ketchikan. I know it will be very touristy but guess what?? I'm a tourist! It's only a short show so will leave me with lots of time to explore other things while there.

I have attached a screenshot of the route the cruise ship will be taking.

I am getting very excited now!
