Just four weeks and we’ll be on our way to Alaska aboard the Encore. I’m getting so excited, and geeking out on all things Encore.  To that end here’s a video clip from NCL’s press panel on Aug. 6:

You can find more videos from the presser here.

We’ll have a slightly different itinerary in September. The August cruises leave Seattle, stopping at Icy Strait Point, Skagway, Juneau, Tracy Arm Fjord and Ketchikan before returning to Seattle. We’ll be doing Icy Strait Point, Glacier Bay, Juneau and Ketchikan. With nice long port days.
