This was only our 3rd cruise on HAL and our first trip to Alaska and it was a spur of the moment decision . We had said goodbye to the Eurodam as it left our closest cruise port in Ft. Lauderdale headed to Alaska .

When I saw a good price on it's first cruise there , and after finding another good price on airfare , I pitched the idea to my DW after she woke up . We were soon on our early morning flight from PBI to Atlanta and relaxation mode had set in with our fellow first class passengers .

Before changing planes in Atlanta we noticed that the Corncorde was there also .

Our 767 had an interesting seating arrangement

The inclement weather served as a transition to our anticipation of the famous Seattle rain .

And our lunch prepared us for a week's worth of grazing and gorging

Gotta say - the photo of the "classy" lady with her bare feet on the wall in First... one of my pet peeves on planes - feet, shod or otherwise, so NOT belong on the wall!!!

Bloody Marys at 0530 have that effect on some people but I kept the photo PG by not showing the band aid on her big toe - yuck !

Yes it is .

Mic and I met on a Princess Roll call and since he's now officially old , I thought that an old

Princess birthday cake was the most appropriate belated gift that I could offer him .

We met the SpeediShuttle at the airport for a ride to our hotel the Pan Pacific . They were playing a video in the shuttle and it was nice to see my home town of Miami included in the video ( on the gun ) .
