Regatta

June 2011 - Regatta to Alaska

This was our3rd cruise on...

This was our3rd cruise on the Regatta and the best of all bar none. We had been on an inside passage cruise to Alaska in 08/07 with Holland America and it was a good and enjoyable cruice but Oceania far surpassed that experience. Being on the smaller ship allowed us to go to ports that don#39;t earn their major incomes from the tourist trade but can still provide the Alaskan expierience of scenenery and wildlife. Our ports of call were. Sitka: Went to the American Russian Raptor Rehabilitation Center ,Russian folk Dancers St Michael#39;s Russian Orthodox Church and all venues exceded what we expected. Icey Straites(hoonah) very small comunity , they have turned the old fish packing plant into a museum and a shoppin center. The real advantage of this port is the wildlife tours that depart from here. We went on the Whale watching tour and I finally got to see whales in Alaska. We were parked right in a pod of about twenty whales and they were fantastic and not to far from our boat. Hubbard Glagier: Because of heavey ice conditions we were unable to get close to the Glacier and could only see it from about 3 miles away. Kodiac Island: No tour on the island we just went ashore to explore and visited the Baranof Mueseum and the Alaska wildlife reception center . Both were well worth the time and very informative. Wrangall: Another great port. Basically a fishing community but some very interesting museums and cultural centers. Good display of ancient Petroglyth rock carvings And Chief Shakes Tlingit Tribal House, where a good explanation of the culture and history of the Tlingit people was give by 4 generations of women. Ketchikan: This port is to Alaska what St. Thomas is to the Carribean. It is geared to the tourist trade. This does not mean there is nothing interestig to do, because there is lots to see and do but the shopping is also very good. (not my cup of tea). Vancouver: Disembarked ship and departed for airport and home.
