Our last view of the Ruby from our suite veranda





And from the transporter room of the E dam , "Prepare to beam one down , Scotty " .





Since we were staying another day in Seattle , and we heard that there was express line for suites , we thought that we would wait awhile instead of leaving first . BIG mistake . There was no express line or Global 1 line .





And there was also a line for a taxi .





It was nice to be back at the terrific Pan Pacific

Thanks for the great pictures of your Alaskan trip. I lived there back in the early 70s and seeing your pictures reminded me of lots of great times. We are sailing on the Zuiderdamn in November and are booked in a Neptune Suite, so seeing your on board pictures and menus and so forth really helped her feel more comfortable and actually get a bit excited.

We can not hope to enjoy our trip as much.

You're welcome , it must have been nice to have lived there then .
We really did enjoy our Neptune experience ( but we're still paying for it and our next cruise ) , and we would like to do again on the K dam in October . But our budget will not allow it !

After dropping our bags we went back to the Pike Place Market to look for the elusive flying fish

Too bad, with so many inventions being made from sci- fi movies and such into reality, I just wish some of the more practical ones would be around now.

So, how long did it take you to get through the lines when leaving the ship? We have been planning on staying on late for the first time ever (we're usually in the first group). We are spending the day/night post-cruise in Seattle and thought it might be nice to relax for a change rather than hurry off - but don't want to spend hours in lines with that decision.

It was about 30 minutes and 20 minutes in the cab line . We didn't use uber or lyft as others did , but that's quicker . In Port Everglades or Miami we usually self embark and drive home .

We didn't find the flying fish and prices seemed a bit high to us








We did watch the piano man for a bit and he was good





Video clip :

We ate lunch at a place near the crumpet shop





Fish and chips





And spinach and artichoke dip

We saw some interesting sights on the walk back to the hotel like a tall tree growing in middle of a street .





And a Starbucks Draft on tap





This place was near to our hotel





We went to whole food market to by a bottle of wine but it was surrounded by a tall wall . They had been caught selling to an underage minor and were shut down by the state !

As always, thank you for your wonderful posts and pictures! Also, thank you for the great tip regarding the book Alaska By Cruise Ship---we are returning to Alaska on a cruise in July and the book has been very helpful! Safe sailing! Evelyn
