    Larry…unfortunately my Alaska vid with Buble’s “Feeling Good” song got the axe from U-tube (along with a few others) due to an audio copyright violation. Ooops! It was my #1 favorite too and putting it to another song just doesn’t do it justice. BTW…after many cruises, I’ve learned to cut my packing down…now I only take 14 pairs of shoes! 😉

    Trudy, I have watched all of your videos; however, I have been looking for your Alaska video which has Michael Buble as the background music. I believe it is a masterpiece. Is it still available? Still hope to cross paths with the two of you one of these cruises. By the way, do you always travel with several trunks of clothes? You both are always dressed so very perfectly. Sincerely, Larry

  11. ZipTang63 says:

    Very well done! Just finished this cruise on the Milennium in July,looking forward to your next video. . .

  12. RockyMHorse says:

    Ah, okay.

  13. truvids says:

    They are similar because Radiance and Brilliance are sister ships. We will sail on Brillance for the first time this December to Spain/Portugal/Canary Islands. Stay tuned for a video!

    The nature of alaska is so beautiful beyond words…
    I’m renting an RV in Anchorage from end of June 2008 for a week and driving to Denali, Valdez, and then to Kenai then back to Anchorage.
    Great video, I enjoyed it very much…thanks!

  15. truvids says:

    See links to excursions in the video description.

  16. truvids says:

    A MUST DO is whale watching with F.I.S.H.E.S in Icy Straight Point as well as the Yukon Rail and Bus Exursion in Skagway with Chilkoot Charters.
    Of course, go see Mendenhall Glacier while in Juneau. Whatever you do, you will just fall in love with Alaska! Enjoy your cruise.
