Counting Down to Geneacruising Alaska in 2018

What’s better than a cruise? A genealogy cruise of course. Well, it is in my opinion anyway, and I’m already looking forward to my next one … Alaska.

In September 2018 (7 September 2018 to be exact), Unlock the Past’s Alaska cruise will leave from the docks at Seattle, USA, and head up the coast for a 7 day cruise to Alaska and back.

I have seen some amazing places on previous cruises, but I’ve not been to Alaska. But everyone who has, tells me it is absolutely incredible, so I’m looking forward to it. But then combine the amazing scenery with a phenomenal ship that has everything catered for, and a genealogy conference with world-class speakers … what’s not to love?

So yes, I’m counting down!

So apart from the awesome group of speakers, and meeting with a great bunch of other genealogists, there are still further benefits of genealogy cruising:
– there are no meals to prepare (not even mentioning the incredible buffets on offer)
– no housekeeping (your room is tidied everyday by cruise staff)
– and you can get up at whatever time you wish (true!!)

You can also choose whatever mix of genealogy, relaxing or all the luxuries and entertainment that is offered on one of the biggest cruise ships in the world. And it is the perfect event for your non-genealogy partner to join you.

I can highly recommend genealogy cruising. It really is the best of both worlds. You get to visit amazing places, while enjoying a genealogy conference. You can learn from so many of the best, and make a bunch of new friends as well.

Come and join me, I guarantee you’ll have a ball.
