Alaska’s Inside Passage Aboard the Norwegian Cruise Line’s Pearl

Alaska’s Inside Passage – It seems that every baby boomer we know has an Alaskan cruise on their bucket list.  With one of our missions as that of your personal travel scout, Carol and I figured that we had better check that one off of our own bucket list. Therefore, we just returned home from […]

Glacier-Bay-National-Park

Glacier Bay National Park, Alaska – I can think of only a very few things that made this baby boomer’s heart stop from sheer awe.  This is a photograph of calving on the Margerie Glacier which stands 250 feet above the water, with 100 feet below the water.

Alaska-Glacier-Bay

Glacier Bay National Park, Alaska – Norwegian Cruise Line – This morning I rose at 6:00 to hopefully capture humpback whales galavanting in Alaska’s Glacier Bay.  It was so foggy, you couldn’t see your hand in front of your face, so I went back to bed for another hour.

Juneau, Alaska ~ Norwegian Cruise Lines – One of the major highlights of any baby boomer’s cruise up the Inside Passage of Alaska is the prospect of laying your eyes on a humpback whale. With slow and very limited Internet availability, I will have to keep this short, but here’s a sample of what I […]

Day #2 – Alaskan Inside Passage Cruise with Norwegian Cruise Lines

Looking-for-Humpback-Whales

  Alaskan Inside Passage Cruise ~ Norwegian Cruise Lines – Today was a full day at sea as we make our way north towards Juneau, Alaska. The morning seas were filled with rain, wind, and cold.  However, as the afternoon sun made an appearance, the sides of the ships were filled with expectant people hoping […]

We’re aboard the Norwegian Cruise Line’s “Pearl” and in the photograph above we are pulling away from Seattle’s dock #66 at precisely […]
