Skagway is the first opportunity we had to leave the ship. As we were pulling in, we were immediately met by a sea lion who was swimming around watching us dock while playing with a fish he had caught. He wasn’t eating the fish mind you, just holding it in his mouth, letting it go, [...]

I’m not sure what I was expecting, but I have to admit the glacier at Tracy Arm was a little anti-climactic. I guess it’s because I’ve seen too many movies where glaciers are right next to the ship – okay, bad reference – that evokes images of Titanic (which I’ve been quoting all day….”We’re dressed [...]

If I’m being honest, my favorite day on board a Disney ship is embarkation day.  I’m not sure exactly why that is – if it’s the excitement and anticipation of the upcoming cruise, the fact that the ship is all clean and neat after being turned over from the previous cruise, or if it’s just [...]

I wonder what my house looks like?  Given that this is my 7th trip this year, it seems like I’m never home.   Max the intern (who guards the homestead while I’m gone along with Max the Dog) has started replacing furniture and I hear he’s picking out new drapes for the family room. After completing [...]
