Check in for the flight to Vancouver and the two Alaskan cruises on the Norwegian Jewel.
Yet another unmitigated disaster on United Airlines on the way to Vancouver, British Columbia,
Embarkation day in Vancouver. I left Canada without leaving Canada. The ship was in port until 5 PM while I officially entered the United States at 11:30 AM.
Today was supposed to be scenic cruising of the inside passage, but the ship passed most of the scenic part at night. It was still a nice sea day and a chance to relax.
Ketchikan, Alaska, Lions, Tigers & Bears, Oh My… well there were Bears and Salmon, no Lions or Tigers in Alaska (unless Mike Tyson moved here from Vegas)
A beautiful day in Juneau, Alaska. A little hiking on top of Mount Roberts and a scenic tram (gondola) ride.
Two trips up the Klondike Highway to Canada on a scenic summit drive from Skagway, Alaska. Waterfalls, mountains and glaciers surround the city.
A spectacular day cruising in Glacier Bay National Park, Alaska. Beautiful mountains and glaciers.
Amazing views of Hubbard Glacier, in Alaska
A soggy and foggy day in Seward, Alaska. The end of the first cruise, but the beginning of the second.
Almost another visit to Hubbard Glacier, Alaska. It turned into a visit to a fog bank.
Enjoying nature in Icy Strait Point
A spectacular day cruising the breathtaking Tracy Arm Fjord. It couldn’t get much better with large chunks of ice floating, turquoise water and wispy clouds clinging to the side of the fjord. Oh and we also visited Juneau, the capital of Alaska.
Chasing rainbows in Skagway, Alaska. Well didn’t need to chase too hard, they just appeared. And a bear as well.
A short visit to Ketchikan Alaska and the northern lights at sea at night.
Time to enjoy the last day on the ship while cruising the scenic Inside Passage – and watching whales, well at least one whale.
Disembarkation day in Vancouver. I spent about a whole hour in Canada since I cleared US immigration at the airport.
