Cruise to Alaska

July 13 - 23, 2021

Is a cruise to Alaska on your bucket list? Are you looking for a fun and educational family trip? Are you looking for CE credit along with your trip? Are you interested in an exchange of information with family physicians? 


We've got that and more. The POA is pleased to once again partner with the PA Academy of Family Physicians (PAFP) for an educational cruise. This time we're off to see Alaska in all its splendor. From our starting point in Anchorage to our final port of Vancouver, this trip will tick all the boxes on your list. Continue reading for all the information you need about both the land and sea portions of this fantastic trip. 


Durin the course of the cruise, there will be at least 12 hours of continuing education offered. Some courses will be in conjunction with the PAFP and some will be strictly optometry-related. All courses will be eligible for CE credit in the Commonwealth of PA, and we will be happy to work with doctors from other states to obtain credit for their license renewal. If you are interested in presenting during the cruise, please let Ilene at the POA office know (Ilene@poaeyes.org). Presenters will cover their own expenses and will receive a cabin credit for their participation. 


For those who are interested, there is a three-day, pre-cruise land package that includes a train trip to Denali, visits to Mt. Denali and Mt. McKinley, and a stop at Talkeetna. Or, if you are so inclined or have a time restriction, you can board the Celebrity Millennium for just the 7-night cruise. 


As part of our travel package, you will have the opportunity to choose 2 free perks from a list of four available aboard ship. If you book prior to March 4, 2020, an additional perk will be available to you. The cost to reserve your cabin is just $500. 


It's not too soon to think about your 2021 July vacation! Registration for the CE portion will be available after February 15, 2020 on this page.
