2011 CHS ALASKAN CRUISE
(see pictures below)
Six classmates and four guests sailed on the Celebrity Infinity through the Alaskan Inside Passage from June 10th through the 17th, 2011.
Kathy (Bruckmann) Thomas, Edie Dufour, Dave and Linda (Mishkind) Schiesel (our travel agent for the cruise), Fran (Rosen) Knowles, Fred Thomson, Sharron (Santee) Fogel, Donna Rudolph, Nancy (Trott) Hurtado and Karen (Winter) Lassell were the 10 who enjoyed touring and viewing Ketchikan, Tracy Arm Fjord, Juneau and Skagway in Alaska, and Victoria, British Columbia.
We saw glaciers, whales, wildlife and the gorgeous Butchart Gardens in Victoria. We were fortunate to have good weather overall.
There was neither a shortage of activities on board the Infinity nor lack of cuisine, from glorified hamburgers to gourmet feasts. And all of it sprinkled with calorie reducing powders! (Brooklyn Bridge, anyone?)
The photos below speak for themselves. Special thanks to Linda for her excellent choice of cruise line and for organizing the trip.
