What: 7-day Alaskan Cruise
Who: Me, the Boy, and certain members of the Boy’s Family
Our first two and half days of the cruise were spent at sea, making our way from Seattle up to the northernmost point of our route. Unless you feel like gambling or shopping non-stop, there’s not a whole lot to do on the at-sea days until the evening when the shows start. So we had plenty of time to wander around the ship, get pictures of the passing scenery, and watch the world go by through the windows during the day. And gorge on all of the available food, and read, and nap, of course. We were lucky enough to have clear weather those days, so while it was brisk it was nice enough to go out on deck.
There’s not a whole lot to recap in text from those days, but there are plenty of photos. Witness (and click to embiggen, if you wish):
Part 2 will detail our stops in Skagway and Juneau, and Part 3 will be Ketchikan and Victoria. Those will be up later this week, and have more story-like stuff to go with the photos. 🙂
Stunning scenery – I’d love to do a trip to Alaska someday, but it’s so very far from Israel that that isn’t likely for quite a while…
Wow, yeah, you’re kind of on the opposite side of the globe! If you ever do get a chance someday, take it – and pack warm!! 😉
Wow! That make me want to take a cruise. The elephant is adorable!
Do so, if you get the chance! They are all sorts of fun. 🙂
Those are some BEAUTIFUL photos!! Wow, i never thought i’d like to go to Alaska before but it is so gorgeous there!!! Perhaps you’ve changed my mind!
I didn’t think I’d ever want to go to Alaska either, but I’m glad I did. It is stunning there. 🙂
My favorite posts are the photog scenery ones!
Thanks! I don’t have a whole lot of those, since they tend to only happen when I go on vacation.
