Eat Club In Alaska
The Third Act Of A Trilogy
The Eat Club has cruised around the globe on many different lines, but the three Cunard ships are far and away our favorites. We have traveled on the Queen Mary 2 and the Queen Victoria, but will achieve a grand slam when we sail to Alaska aboard the Queen Elizabeth this summer. Yes this summer, June 2019, on the only Cunard ship sailing to Alaska this year. It’s the last leg of a round-the-world journey, and the first time Cunard has been to Alaska in decades.
For the Eat Club, this will be our third, and likely our last, visit to Alaska. We chose this itinerary because it is special, beginning and ending in Vancouver. That world-class city boasts the largest number of Asian restaurants in the world outside of Asia. Sampling some of them is a definite possibility.
The center of the cruise brings us to the adorable little Ketchikan (which claims blue skies 360 days a year,although last time we were there it rained). We go to rugged Skagway, where a passenger train takes you over the mountains to the Canadian border in gold-rush territory, with spectacular views in between. And we stop at our personal favorite: Sitka, a charming frontier town. We will cruise Tracy Arm Fjord and Hubbard Glacier, and the little-known Icy Strait Point. Expect glaciers and icebergs (not too near). We call on the capital city Juneau, of course. A new stop for us is a special stop in Victoria, British Columbia.
It’s a ten-night cruise departing from Vancouver on June 10th, 2019.

tom @nomenu.com. The Eat Club is not really a club, but open to everyone. The friendships you’ll make during the cruise are more than worth the price of the journey. The same might not also be said about my singing, which I plan on exposing to anyone willing to listen.
