Thank you Neil and Rick! We are leaving Illinois on 5/14 and spending two nights in Anchorage. Our land tour begins 5/16. Then we take the southbound cruise to Vancouver, arriving the morning of 5/26. We are spending the night in Vancouver and flying home on the 27th.
Since Illinois is a long way from Alaska, we are allowing plenty of time for flight delays and stuff!
When we were supposed to go on this cruise last May, before I broke my wrist, Princess had us scheduled to fly Northwest Airlines. We had horrible seats. My husband and I were seated two rows apart on the longest leg of the journey. On the other flights, we were together but the seats were the worst on the plane. So we are a little leery of using Princess this time. However, we will bite the bullet if we have to and hope for better seats. We are just researching right now.
Thank you again. I am glad that Alaska Air would be a good choice if we choose to go that route.
