Last week, our family embarked on the Great Alaskan Adventure or, as Charlotte called it, Cruisin' for a Bruisin'. Many years ago Mark and I knew we wanted to do something monumental to celebrate our 50th anniversary, including our family. We briefly contemplated Hawaii, but then thought "who wants to shop and cook for 12 people?" So we pivoted to an Alaskan cruise, where all we had to do was choose where and when to eat.
Our travel agent recommended Norwegian Cruise Line because it was very family friendly, and we had six kids--two 9-year-olds, two 11-year-olds, a 15-year-old and a 16-year-old. We needed activities!
We began our adventure by flying to Seattle.
