Ottley Family Celebration to Alaska

Norm and Penny Ottley’s Family Celebration Alaska Cruise

Come join us as we celebrate our 70th birthdays next year and a special wedding celebration of Savanna Powell and Zion Wilson during the cruise. You won’t want to miss all the fun and celebration.  We know everyone can’t be away from home or work for a long time, so we have two great options described below. Whichever you choose, we hope you’ll come along and be part of the fun. We have reserved a block of premium balcony staterooms all together on Deck 10 for maximum enjoyment and we also have interior staterooms reserved on deck 10 just across from the balconies for kids or if you just want to spend less on the cruise.  Staterooms are limited because of the popularity of Alaska cruises.  Click on the “Register Now” button to complete the online registration form.
