Hello to anyone peaking at me :). I went on my first cruise in May 2018 to Alaska with my mom. It was amazing and I AM HOOKED! Because I had so much fun and cannot stop talking about cruising, I finally convinced my skeptical husband to join me for my next cruise for my 50th birthday, to Hawaii! 15 days from San Francisco. I'm hoping he will fall in love with cruising as much as I have and this can be our new way to vacation.
May 2018 - 7 Night Alaskan Explorer With Glacier Bay (Seattle Roundtrip) Cruise on Eurodam
First Cruise Ever Was Amazing
Sail Date: May 26, 2018
Really pretty port. Wandered around the town mostly. Visited the Red Dog Saloon, I would recommend at least going in. My excursion was the Salmon Bake, it was decent food. It was surprisingly at a industrial park, but once you headed out behind it, the falls were so pretty.
Very fun port. Lots of shopping here. Just walked around looking at what was in town. I enjoyed seeing all the cruise ships lined up here, I believe there were four.
This was by far my favorite port. I could move here! The scenery was picturesque. Walked down to the totem park and museum before heading back to town for fish and chips at The Pub. We finished our day with a whale watching excursion.
We didn't spend time here, except to and from the airport. It was a pretty drive though.
This city is very pretty. We took a hop on hop off bus tour. We only had 4 hours here, so we just rode the bus around. I'd love to go back and see more.
BEAUTIFUL! The water is amazing as you cruise in. Our Captain is a fan of the bears, and when a trio was spotted, he brought the ship almost to a standstill so we could observe them. We had a Forest Service representative as well as native Alaskan, they were both very informative. The glaciers were breathtaking. We observed them from the bow of the ship, where we were served hot split pea soup. What an experience.
I had only read a little about cruising before this trip. I wish I had tried the main dining room. So, don't just do the buffet! :)
