It was dreamy.  We were spoiled rotten.  If you can look past the environmental offenses (insert floating city offenses here), it is a pretty fabulous way to travel – especially for a large group, looking to spend some stress-free time together.  We were 64 people, ranging from age three to ninety.  Everyone was relaxed and keen to meet every evening at 4:30pm for Happy Hour (2 for 1 drinks) and Team Trivia Challenge (Karaoke and Piano Bar sing-alongs took place later in the evening).

S’s dress.  I kind-of made it up, using the base pattern for the bodice from this Japanese pattern book.  I tried to make a rosebud for the front, but it looks more like a silk blob:

AZ made our boy a tie.  W laughed at himself, saying, “I look like an office werrker”.

We got to experience teeny bits of Alaska, picking wildflowers and squashing pennies on the White Pass and Yukon Route railroad:




And of course the cruising was beautiful.  In addition to Orcas, humpback whales and dolphins, E actually saw a moose swimming in Glacier Bay!


Coming into Vancouver this morning, I couldn’t sleep, so I ventured up to the Observation Deck to snuggle under a blanket.  Holy Smokes, I love this place:
