Inside Passage; Juneau To Skagway

Inside Passage

Again, the routine was, depart Juneau in the early evening and “at sea” during the night.  This allowed us to take nice advantage of the part of the on-ship amenities that most interested me.  I didn’t see an Alaska cruise as being about lolling about the pools and playing shuffleboard on the deck.  The on-ship meals were surprising.  Good to excellent.  The buffet was, well, a buffet.  What can you say.  Great for breakfast.  Unremarkable food otherwise.  But the dining rooms were another story.  The meals were well-prepared, fresh, and in almost all cases, delicious.  We opted for the traditional, second seating and on all but one evening, shared our table with a delightful foursome from England.  A brother and sister and respective spouses, they had flown from London to Calgary, and take a train from Calgary to Vancouver.  I need to do that some day.  They were seasoned cruisers and gave us some great thoughts for our future planned Mediterranean cruise.  We also had some fun discussing “football.”  I am typing this as I watch the U.S. play England in the World Cup (even though it will be posted much later) and I cannot help but fondly think of our dinners with them.  John, Jean, Sue and Richard, I hope you are all well.

Inside Passage

By this time, it was getting light by 3:30 a.m., and I was out on the balcony making images at about that time, and off and on as we came into port in Skagway.
