Choosing Cruising

For the second time we booked a cruise.

You may remember our first one to Alaska two years ago. Here’s a little reminder if you don’t – Juneau and Mendenhall Glacier.

In fact, cruising to Alaska might be considered a gateway cruise – for some people it can lead to other cruises to far and distant lands. Like the Panama Canal. Or the Caribbean. Or Mexico.

We opted for something a little less exotic and closer to home – where we can still enjoy the cruising experience. Down the coast from Seattle. To San Francisco. And Monterey. With a stop by Victoria on the way back. Not because we’ve never been to these places before but because we have – and loved them. Only this time we’ll leave the driving to someone else. And arrive by sea. Relaxing don’t you think?

I hope to tell you all about it soon.

In the meantime, here’s a sneak preview of sunrise from the ship.

  1. Alex and I haven’t ever taken a cruise….I want to wait to say why until I get your report on how your cruise was! Your destinations were terrific! Share some food pics, I want to see how they cook onboard!

    • We have fallen in love with cruising! Let them handle everything and relax and enjoy it all!! I will be sharing lots of pictures and stories when it’s over! 😊

  2. I’ve never been on a cruise, so it will be interesting to read about your experiences of one.

  3. I have deliberately never wanted to go on cruise, as I can feel seasick before a ship even leaves the harbour. I hope that you both have a wonderful time! πŸ™‚
    Best wishes, Pete.

  4. That looks lovely. On this coast a very similar cruise goes up the New England coast in time to see the leaves. Next May my best friend and I are cruising to Bermuda out of New York. It’s nice to be able to drive to the ship instead of having to fly.

  5. Oh wow! Have fun! Panda says to remember to bring a hoodie with a pocket, you never know if you might need one!πŸ˜€πŸΌπŸ±

  6. Cruising is the best way to go. No restaurant or hotel reservations. to worry about. No decisions to make, just kick back and relax and occasionally get on a bus and go see something fun. I just got back from two weeks at sea. I’m hooked.
