Cruising Alaska: July 2007

Friday, July 20: There are dozens of excursions we thought about taking, but this morning we took advantage of Seattle's great shopping instead - Cathy got some clothes and I got a couple of sets of travel-size snorkeling gear that will be handy for both our New Zealand RV tour and our next Caribbean cruise.

    We had a tough time getting a cab at the hotel, but a short ride got us to Pier 60 just before 2:00 pm. There were very few people there, and embarkation was by far the quickest and simplest we've experienced. We had our lifejacket drill at 3:30, and lines were cast off at 4:10.
