Sure, you’ll be home for Christmas. But what are you doing New Year’s Eve?
Head up to Fairbanks, where Princess is putting on a lovely New Year’s Eve soiree at the Princess Lodge, on the frozen banks of the Chena River. In fact, right now it’s (b-r-r-r-r) -28F in Fairbanks. Yup. Chilly.
Fear not–it’s warm inside, although I got “icy reception” on the phone last time I visited in the winter (right). HA!
