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 a seven night cruise of Alaska’s Inside Passage aboard the Norwegian Cruise Line’s Pearl.
The Pearl made her maiden voyage in 2006 and will accommodate roughly 2,500 passenger and 1,100 crew.
We learned that while aboard ship we all consumed 11 tons of fruit, 36,000 eggs, 12 tons of beef and chicken, 11 tons of vegetables, and 500 gallons of ice cream!
In spite of 5 days of walking at port, and 2 days of work-outs at sea, I still managed to bring home a few extra pounds. It was likely the always available soft-serve chocolate ice cream cones!
Rather than writing thousands of words trying to describe this amazing experience, we have prepared a video for you that will highlight not only the experiences available on the ship, but our exciting ports of call as well.
Take a peek…
Alaska is a magical place, and the Norwegian Pearl was an excellent way for us to taste some of her treasures. One thing is absolutely certain, these boomers will be again be roaming the wilds of Alaska. We LOVED it.
Disclosure: this magical adventure was provided by the kind folks at Norwegian Cruise Lines. Further, all photographs/video were taken with a Nikon D7000 on loan from Nikon, USA. Thanks!
