Following are various documents related to the cruise:
NAWJ is not securing a block of rooms on the front end. We are, however, recommending the Pan Pacific Hotel. Here is the link to the Pan Pacific:
Be sure to check the various discount offer link at the lower right hand corner of the page.
NAWJ has secured a block of rooms at the Hotel Captain Cook at the rate of $181 plus tax (we need the group together for bus transport). The Group Code for reservations through their website, www.captaincook.com, is - judgesw10. Be advised that the rate that comes up on the online system is $191. This is a glitch in their system, and I will take care of making the adjustment for you. Or you can call the hotel at 800.843.1950 and tell them you are with the National Association of Women Judges (NAWJ).
If you wish to return home on Sunday night rather than staying over at the Captain Cook Hotel until Monday, it is recommended that no return flight from Anchorage to your home be scheduled before a late evening red eye flight from Anchorage, either late on Sunday night, May 29th, or after midnight on Monday morning, May 30th (e.g. 1:00 a.m.) We will provide transportation at 9:00 pm after the reception at Justice Fabe’s house directly to the airport, which is less than a half-hour away. Thus, you would be safe in booking a flight after 11:00 pm.
