Another Glacier through College Fjord. This one is receding drastically!
Look at the chunks of ice in the water. A sure sign we were approaching a Glacier. See the rock, it was once covered with ice. Sad isn't it!
So what else do we do while we slowly cruise the Fjord? Here's a few things..Ken in deep thought!
Chatting with the CrewJust laughing, drinking coffee, eating and having fun
Some brave the cold and sit on the deck.
Take pictures of the cute cook, with wonderful eyes, or talk to John and officer that came up behind me and gave me a terrific neck rub....mmmm...wonder if he's trained for that! Felt great!
Go to the disembarkation information and saying goodbye from the crew to the people, like Ken and Linda who leave the cruise tomorrow and most are heading on by land to Denali Park, further up into Alaska. The cooks all come out, some of the crew from every part of the ship and they put on a little show, that is wonderful, yet sad. We won't be getting off yet, but continuing on after we reach Seward tomorrow. We get this show again before Vancouver.
This is Patrick, who was there every morning to hand us our trays for breakfast in the Lido. A very friendly, happy sort, who would sing and hug us all every day and have a little joke or two. He surprised everyone by coming out on stage and singing "Unforgettable", with the most amazing and wonderful voice! Patrick is leaving the ship next month to seek a career. He met a woman on the ship who has contacts in the music business and says he's good enough for a music career. Patrick has such hopes and dreams and we all hope they come true. Good Luck Patrick!
Or, how about the Dessert Extravaganza? Wow!! You should see this event! The cooks work for days to make very fancy desserts that are beautifully displayed on tables, all around the entire indoor pool area. There is every dessert imaginable, a chocolate fountain, with fruit to dip in it, different breads, ice sculptures and sculpture's made of white chocolate!! Then we get to eat them!!! How good is that!!! Here's a few pictures of that.
If none of the above float your boat, there is always Swimming, Hot tubbing, Bingo, Culinary arts display, the Spa ,a Curry Cook out, a Towel Animal Demonstration, Art Auction, the Casino, Talks on native people, Wine tasting, Ice carving demonstration, Basketball, Afternoon tea, Showtime, Name that tune, and Trivia. I went up to look at the Jewelry Shop and they had a draw to win Jade. Guess what? I won!!! I got three bears, a big one, and two little one with fish in their mouth, made of Jade. What a surprise!!!
When tired of doing all this, and it's time to call it a day, come on out on deck and enjoy the beautiful sunset in Alaska!! What a sight!!
