Alaska’s Ferries Aren’t Doing So Well

Recommended Posts

  • 3 months later...

It was the reports of service cutback or elimination that inspired me to return to Alaska last fall and find ferries to travel on.  I had been to Alaska on the Royal Princess in the spring, but  I wasn't thrilled with her (too big and too inward-facing, like a lot of the new ships in recent years).

After a few days in Sitka, I spent a day and a night on the MV Columbia, and 2 days and nights on the MV Kennicott.  Had a great time in Sitka and on both ships.  It was refreshing to be on "working" ships that still seem like ships and not like resort hotels, and to be up close to the scenery in a way that you can't on a huge cruise ship.

I was hoping to get back up there this spring to try some other ships and towns.  Oh, well.  Maybe in the fall?

I don't think the Bubonic Plague in the 14th century was a lot of laughs.
