Alaskan Cruise

Post by jackal » Sun Aug 05, 2007 12:21 pm

Just got back yesterday from a week long cruise to Alaska.
We went on the Holland America Lines from Seattle.

The cruise was very very nice and I saw some of the most
awesome beauty nature has too offer. I had an Bald Eagle fly
within three feet of me and hover there looking for fish in the water.
(I was at the top of the deck of the ship)

We stopped in Jeaneu, Sitka Keatuikan Alaska and Victoria
British Columbia. The ship I was on had 50,000 horse power
and was very fast. We averaged 23 knots on open seas. I saw
several whales, Sea Lions etc etc.

The cruise ship was a never ending source of food. The lido
deck buffet never closed down. Every morning they had made
to order omlettes. There was a never ending supply of nacho's
and mexican comfort food around the pool all afternoon's. Dinners
were five star prime rib, Salmon, Black Halibut, Lobster, and much
much more.

The ship had two pools and three sets of spas to soak yourself
in. roomservice was twenty four seven deal at no cost. Drinks
were a little high. They didn't have the never ending soda cup
as some cruise lines do either. Honestly I liked my trip to Hawaii
I took a little better mostly because the ship was a little small by
the end of the week.

I will post a some pictures ASAP.

I'm hoping to visit Alaska some day but the place is so big I haven't decided which part exactly. Denali national park maybe.

I've been to Victoria, BC and that place is very beautiful. Looking forward to the pictures.

Thanks for the recap on your trip. That Alaskan trip is one that I have always wanted to take. I would probably have to do a lot of working out while on board to get rid of all the food I would eat. Oh, yeah, and the drinks too. :)

I want to go to Alaska too. I've always wondered what it is like to have the sun up at 11:30 pm.

I ran almost 1O miles on the ship and worked out 3 times
and still added some extra weight. :lol:

Very cool! I want to take my girlfriend on one someday... my sister and brother-in-law loved their Caribbean cruise last year, even though she was stung by a jellyfish! They gave me "cruise fever" and now you are feeding it too! :)
