News for the Week


From Donna:

Hello from rocky seas on the way to Victoria, B.C. What a week Alan and I had in Alaska—gorgeous weather and a couple of wonderful shore excursions that I can’t wait to tell you about. Leaving Alaska, the seas turned rough, I put on the sea-bands, took half of a seasick pill and slept through a bouncy ride. Alan, lucky guy, enjoyed watching the action from Deck 10 as he has no problem with seasickness. Although we’ve enjoyed our 42 days on Seabourn Sojourn, wildflower season in Montana is calling our name. We can’t wait to arrive home!

From Nicole:

Most people have heard about this state’s immense natural beauty, but since Alan and Donna live here, we’ll spill the secrets about how to best see it in all of its glory!
