Cattle trucks and Alaska


Almost done booking our May trip to Alaska--thanks Uncle Mike. Doing it on our own--don't want near a cruise ship. Set our own schedules. Why?

Tell me how a cruise ship is different, other than 4,000 humans are herded on and off board rather than cattle--all of them headed to market?

Here we go:
IT FLOATS, BUT...
IT SINKS!
