8/26 Alaska Cruise Summary
Day 1 – boarding in Vancouver. Not a problem! We had to clear US Immigration again after spending about 13 hours in Canada! Because Mom and Susan were signed up for one room and Mark for a different one (Susan and Mark sailed on Princess in the past and got discounts on rooms their names are one.), when JB cancelled, Susan and Mark each have a room to ourselves! We got keys to each room and our cabin attendant unlocked the balcony door between the cabins. We can go back and forth.
Gloriously sunny day with blue sky for departure from Vancouver.
Day 2 – awoke to fog that continues pretty much all day long! At sea all day heading north with no land in site since it’s hidden in the fog.
Day 3 – Juneau – the sun came out in time for a walk around Juneau and a visit to Devil’s Run Brewery.
Day 4, 5, 6, 7 – fog and heavy clouds were the operative words for 4 days. Glaciers look more blue when it’s cloudy – or so we were told!
Day 10 – the sun comes out just in time for our 8 hour trip to Denali National Park. Yes! We saw Denali!
