First time in Alaska & it was AWESOME! Had great weather & the scenery & wildlife far exceeded our expectations. Took many Caribbean cruises thinking I didn't want to vacation in cold weather....what a mistake! Alaska is SO incredible! I'm really glad that we didn't do a land tour; the ones that did that came on the ship exhausted & didn't catch up till 3 days into the cruise. We love being on the ship & would have hated to be too tired to enjoy it.
The Ryndam is charted for this week, does a 5 day cruise after that & then to Victoria for a 21 day dry dock. I just hope they have enough time to finish the work..they have major changes planned!
Would be glad to answer any questions when we get home-I'm typing this from the Pan Pacific in Vancouver.
