Cruising Alaska: July 2007

Saturday, July 21: On Seattle departures, there isn't much to see on the first day, as ships travel west of Vancouver Island - in our case, far west of it. It's a good day to really explore the ship and see what she has to offer. This photo shows the top of the Planeto Astrolabium, a specially commissioned sculpture suspended in a 3-storey atrium. If you spend time watching it closely, you can see that the Astrolabe tracks constellations, the planets, world time and ship time.
