August 18 – August 25, 2013
So, you’d think travelling from Vancouver alllllll the way up to Alaska would be totally awesome with so much to see and you’d never want to leave the deck to go inside? Well, as we’ve already established, there is a LOT of food to enjoy on a cruise ship – most of which is served inside – and so there is a lot of motivation to be inside. Especially since once the ship moves on from the Inside Passage, it turns out that there isn’t all the much to see besides water as far as the eye can see! Needless to say, we didn’t spend a huge amount of time on deck taking photogs of the water.
Passing the Hubbard Glacier was meant to be the big highlight to be viewed from aboard the ship, but unfortunately, it was rainy and C-O-L-D. I just caught a quick glimpse, but Lausanne was much more dedicated and worked on some fabo photos despite the cloudiness. Apparently when the sun shines on it, it’s incredible. Unfortunately, we didn’t get any sun on glacier days but it was still pretty outrageous.
Icy Strait Point, Juneau, and Ketchikan were also pretty impressive to see from the ship deck before disembarking.
