The whole deal with the cruise are the shows on the Lido Deck among other things.

Watching different bands playing outside at sea day and night you can't beat it.

If you like the choo choo's so much, take it to the next SMC 2011.

Cramped quarters, no open air. Pass...

Keep the cruise.

Stepping onto the dome car of the Alaska Railroad you do not realize that this train is not just a tourist train.

Travel the Dalton Highway, Alaska
Thursday, October 15th, 2009
By Guest Author Peggy Bradshaw, Photos by George Bradshaw

Eighty-four miles north of Fairbanks, Alaska begins the primitive road known as The Dalton Highway, or the Haul Road. It was first called the Haul Road because almost everything supporting the oilfields of the North Slope of Alaska was transported across this road on tractor-trailer rigs. It ends 414 miles later in Deadhorse, the industrial camp at Prudhoe Bay. A primitive road from its beginning to its end, there are very few stretches of pavement. It is the farthest north road and involves risks and challenges, but at the same time gives the opportunity to traverse a remote, unpopulated part of Alaska to the very top of the continent.

Travel Across the Great Alaskan Tundra
Wednesday, October 14th, 2009
By Guest Author Peggy Bradshaw, Photos by George Bradshaw

The tundra of Alaska is a stark but beautiful landscape. As the coldest of all the biomes, tree growth is hindered by low temperatures and a short growing season. Tundra also contains permafrost, which means that the soil is permanently frozen and can be from 10-35 inches deep, making it impossible for trees to grow.

Why Would Anyone Want to Go to Prudhoe Bay? – Friday Favorite?
Friday, September 11th, 2009
By Guest Author Peggy Bradshaw
Photos by George Bradshaw

When I first got off of the airplane at Deadhorse, Alaska, I wanted to get right back on and fly away. It was 33 degrees and it was June 23, summer solstice, and the wind was blowing at least 30-40 miles an hour. We all climbed onto a tour bus (which was warm) and were taken to the motel where we would be staying, the Arctic Caribou Inn, while we experienced our unique visit to the oil fields of the North Slope of Alaska.

Riding the White Pass and Yukon Railroad: A Scenic Adventure
Friday, July 24th, 2009
Guest Author Peggy Bradshaw

When Gold was discovered in the Klondike in 1896 and a ton of gold arrived in Seattle in 1897, the gold rush was on! Everyone rushed to the goldfields through Chilkoot Pass. It was six hundred miles over treacherous and dangerous trails and waterways. Another trail was developed through White Pass and this became the route of the White Pass and Yukon Railroad.

Skagway – Traveling to the Gold
Thursday, July 23rd, 2009
By Guest Author Peggy Bradsaw

The Alaskan gold rush lured thousands to Skagway, which became known as the gateway to the goldfields. By 1898, it was Alaska’s largest town with a population of about 20,000, not counting the 10,000 people living in the tent city of nearby Dyea. Today, Skagway has less than 1,000 residents but the population more than doubles on the days when the cruise ships pull into the dock.

Skagway boasted the shortest route to the Klondike, but it was far from being the easiest. Over a hundred years ago, the White Pass route through the coast mountains and the shorter, but steeper, Chilkoot Trail, were used by thousands of stampeders. The treacherous Chilkoot Trail, combined with the area’s cruel elements, left scores dead. The hotels, saloons, dance halls and gambling houses prospered, but as the gold supply dwindled, so did the population of the town, as the miners left to go to newly-discovered gold fields

BORING!!!!!!!

All right so what's your agenda?? Are you a travel agent or something?? What's your point on places to stop and see?? This is a tour for the "Blue Hairs" not Skynyrd Nation.

A train wouldn't work for the amount of people you get on a cruise. Depending on the size of ship it could range from 3000-6000 passengers.

At any point during the cruise you can have upto 3-4 concerts/shows going on at once. Can't do that on a "train ride". After the show's the bands usually hang out with the fans or go the casino.

The part about the cruise is once your on, you don't have to go anywhere. Everything is there, food, drink, frynds, activities. Plus the locations they take you are a hell of a lot better than the ones you posted.


Let it go.
