 Our Cruise on the Coral Princess

Our final week was cruising on the Coral Princess from Steward to Vancouver.

We take one last look at Anchorage before cruise day.
The Cook hotel is the staging place for luggage and travelers. From there we board a bus for a long drive to Whittier where we will board the ship.
