A quick recap of the schedule of events in Alaska, along with some photos.
08/06: Arrive in Vancouver, BC.
08/07: Visit to Stanley Park the Vancouver Aquarium, and some last-minute pre-wedding shopping.
08/08: Embark on the Celebrity Millennium, and shortly thereafter, get married onboard. Set sail a few hours later.
08/09: Full day at sea, cruising to Ketchikan, Alaska. Dinner at the Captain's Table with the Environmental Officer, Alaskan Ranger, and a number of Captain's Club guests.
08/10: Ketchikan events include ziplining, rockclimbing, horse-drawn trolley tour, and shopping for diamonds & souvenirs.
08/11: Juneau events include tram car up the side of the Mt. Roberts to get a better view, and dogsledding on a glacier, accessible only by helicopter.
08/12: Skagway - a goldrush-era town still including brothels, breweries, and of course, diamond shops. We took the train north into BC to go kayaking; others went as far as the Yukon on the same rail line.
08/13: Icy Strait Point / Hoonah Village - explored the now-defunct cannery, souvenir shops, and local town. Sadly, no diamond stores this far north.
08/14: Full day at sea, including a visit to the Hubbard Glacier. We were within 0.3mi of the glacier at closest approach. Managed to lose my wallet some time after dinner. Pooh.
08/15: Disembark the Millennium, and board a bus to Anchorage for the start of our inland tour.
