Didn’t get around to doing much blogging on the cruise.
While the internet was great when it was up and I could login, it was down a lot. Mostly when we were in or close to port. Oddly enough it worked really well at sea. Not bad when at sea is where I prefer to be.
The lines that existed the first day went away. Probably as the crew learned their roles. We could see even in our stateroom that each day the cabin steward got a bit better at his job.
I got a massage one day – at a reduce rate to listen to a sales pitch. Also got keratin treatment on my hair. I did buy product from them, and am really happy with the way my hair looked. I’m used to a Brazilian blowout, which I’ve already decided I’m not doing again. This was between a hot oil treatment and the Brazilian blowout, not near as hard on my hair. When she got done, my color looked amazing.
Rich REALLY enjoyed the poker cruise. His hours were quite annoying, as I kept to my hours as much as possible. But since that was the reason we went on the cruise that was great.
We saw bears on the only shore excursion tour we took. We had Mount Roberts tram tickets which we used, but I didn’t enjoy. It was so crowded and so about “money, money, money”. Lovely display of an eagle by a rescue group that you got it – wanted donations, and lots of gift shops.
All in all, we enjoyed the cruise and I’m trying to decide which cruise line I want to try next – probably Norwegian.
The trip home was hard – our plane was almost an hour late taking off, and the port itself was extremely disorganized. But we’re home and glad to be here.
