Refreshing Travels: The Deans cruise Alaska, Wow!

Did I ever imagine that we would take a cruise to Alaska as a family? Only in my wildest dreams!

Dreams really do come true, and we were so blessed to have been able to see a little bit of The Last Frontier this past August. If you ever have dreamed about doing a trip like this, make sure to put it on your list. Norwegian is a great line to sail with..we had a grand experience with them 🙂 Enjoy our trip, told in photos!
