Travel Colorfully – 5 Things to Do in Skagway, Alaska

skagway alaska travel guide


As much as I love the holiday season, the last couple of weeks before Christmas can always be a bit…stressful. That’s why it’s the perfect time to have a treat yo-self moment…something you can look forward to after the hustle and bustle of the holiday season is over, and if I could make a recommendation to anyone, it would be to start planning a 2018 Alaskan cruise, now! I probably sound like a broken record player, but there simply aren’t enough words to explain how much Cole and I loved every second of our 7-Day Alaska cruise experience with Princess Cruises earlier this September. So instead of bombarding you with last minute holiday gift guides and sales, I’m taking a break from it all by dedicating this week on the blog to sharing ALL the photos (and videos, hopefully…working on it, y’all!) from the remaining stops on our Alaskan cruise.

Earlier this month, I shared our wonder-filled ventures in the capitol of Alaska, Juneau, and I’m starting this week off with my travel guide to the second stop on our Alaskan Cruise, gorgeous Skagway! Click through to read my recommendations on the top five things to do in Skagway, Alaska.

I know I feel this way every year, but it’s feels so hard to believe that December is here. Thankfully, some holiday-appropriate weather finally showed up in Dallas this week (we even got to turn our fireplace on!!), so I can finally wear my cozy cable knit sweaters without breaking a sweat! Since December is the most traveled mont h of the year, I thought it would be the perfect time to team up with my favorite luggage brand, Jon Hart Design, to share my holiday travel style.

Happy Monday friends!! I’m not sure about the weather in your neck of the woods, but this seventy-something and humid thing we have going on here in Dallas is so not cool for December (literally and figuratively), so I thought it would be the perfect time to escape to a much cooler place here on the blog (which I’m sure is currently a winter wonderland!):  Juneau, Alaska.  As promised, today I’m sharing my travel diaries from our first stop on the incredible 7-Day Alaskan Cruise Cole and I took with Princess Cruises earlier this year in September.

10 Reasons You Should Plan an Alaskan Cruise

what to do alaskan cruise

As promised, I’m back with another post from our incredible Alaskan Cruise we did back in mid-September with Princess Cruises. I’ve planned to do a full blog post on each of the three Alaskan ports we visited during our 7-day Alaskan cruise, but before I do that, I wanted to put together a little post on why an Alaskan cruise should absolutely top your bucket list (if it doesn’t already). I mentioned this in my last post about the cruise, but while I was so incredibly excited to explore Alaska, it wasn’t something that was previously on my list of places I absolutely must go. I mostly blamed that reservation on my husband’s obsession with the various Alaskan reality shows on Discovery Channel (I’m talking multiple-day, 12 hour marathons of Alaskan Bush People, y’all), which made Alaska seem a little more outdoorsy than this city girl was up for. I think it’s very clear that I was absolutely wrong because Alaska is the most beautiful place I’ve ever been (with plenty for everyone to see and do!), but I was shocked to hear from so many of you all via comments and emails that you shared that reservation until reading my posts and seeing my photos (which makes me SO happy!!)  For those of you who are still on the fence, here is a list of top 10 reasons you should absolutely book an Alaskan cruise ASAP!

If you follow me on instagram, you might have caught a glimpse of some of the breathtaking scenery and adventure Cole and I experienced just a few weeks ago on our Alaskan cruise with Princess Cruises. The photos hardly do the trip justice because it was truly the most breathtaking, majestic trip either of us have ever been on, but I’m going to be sharing them (and some of my first-ever travel video footage!) anyway in a series of several posts here on the blog. 😉

To start, I’m sharing a peek at the gorgeous ship that we called home through the seven day Alaskan cruise, the Ruby Princess, along with an example of a nautical-inspired cruise ship outfit idea that’s perfect for your days at sea.
