This year for our family vacation we had the kind offer by Mark’s parents to treat our family to an Alaskan Cruise! What fun, Charlotte especially would be in heaven. So Mark and I, Genevieve (9) and Charlotte (7), Mark’s sister Dianne and her husband Chris and Mark’s parents Helena and Paul all booked passage on the Diamond Princess Alaskan Cruise. Because the ship departed from Vancouver, and Mark and I like that city, we decided to arrive a week early and visit Vancouver and Victoria before embarking on our Alaskan adventure. Following are the details of our trip!
