We spent the first evening getting settled in at the Princess Riverside Lodge, which is the hotel owned and operated by Princess Cruises, which was the cruise company we'd be using once we got to Whittier for embarkation. The next day we went on a riverboat cruise down the Tanana River. This cruise led us past a dog kennel that belonged to a local Iditarod champion who had recently passed away and then to an Alaska Native area where we saw a few demonstrations of various native rituals, clothing, fishing and hunting techniques, etc.
