Cowley Golden Tigers return from Alaska cruise
With ports of call to Ketchikan, Juneau, Skagway, and Sitka, Alaska,
participants in the Cowley Golden Tigers Alaska Cruise recently returned
from seven days of sight seeing and fun.
Thirty-nine people signed up for the cruise, which ran from July 25 through Aug. 1.
“They really enjoyed it,” Cowley Golden Tigers program coordinator Margaret Neal said. “We had real favorable remarks and had people asking when we were going to go again. You can’t imagine how beautiful the scenery is.”
The Carnival Cruise ship left from Vancouver and took the Northbound Glacier Route. Neal and Janice Stover served as sponsors of the cruise.
Excursions included a train ride from Skagway to Canada, fishing, wildlife quest, gardening tours, and a trip to the Mendenhall Glaciers, where members of the cruise got an opportunity to see bear cubs and salmon. Thirteen individuals stayed for an extended tour of Anchorage and Fairbanks, Alaska.
