– PRE-CRUISE ITINERARY –
Join us at Hyatt House Seattle/Downtown at the feet of the Space Needle for a pre-cruise get together! This hotel will give us all time and a nice space to unwind, from air or car travel before the cruise, gather our things, and enjoy one another before we get on the boat the next day. The hotel has a great rooftop terrace looking west towards the Olympic Range and Seattle’s gorgeous summer sunsets. We have been given the green light to paint on the terrace! We should have some pretty awesome swag to share with you at the hotel as well. 🙂

In 1880, it was slow going for Joe Juneau and Richard Harris as they searched for gold with the help of Native guides. After climbing mountains, forging streams and facing countless difficulties, they found nuggets “as large as beans.” Today Juneau is famous not only for gold and government but also for its breathtakingly beautiful glaciers and stunning views of both water and mountains.

Skagway: Skagway was the gateway to the gold fields for the thousands who flocked to Alaska and the Yukon with the hope of striking it rich. Skagway may have boasted the shortest route to the Klondike, but it wasn’t the easiest.
