Many of my greatest travel memories have been captured with my digital camera. I can go back and look at those pictures again and again and relive those memories.

This morning I was looking back at pictures from our first cruise. We went to Alaska in 2004. My daughter was just 15 months old. Now she is eight and quite the cruise veteran. I still have the pictures from the cruise. So many of them look like others I have seen on the internet. There are the same shots of Hubbard Glacier.

She was full of huge smiles as she began to remember that day.

Did you know a cruise to Alaska is what got us hooked on a love of cruising. That September 2004 adventure is what eventually led us to owning our cruise focused travel agency. The advantage of a cruise include the ability to see many destinations while unpacking only once; your meals and lodging and entertainment are included in the cost of the cruise fare; your family actually has meals together again.
