carnival miracle alaska cruise - glacier bay
The ports – Seattle, Juneau, Ketchikan, More Skagway, Vancouver – Seattle and Vancouver were both beautiful cities. I arrived a day early in Seattle and stayed an extra day in Vancouver. Alaskan ports -They had a 19th century feel to them. They were all small towns that were ready to close up at the end of September. I purchased a small totem pole at a gallery in Ketchikan what was nicely carved and painted.
Scenery – Alaska is a in a rain forest, the green of the forests and brilliant white of the glaciers, incredible. I was able to see a glacier “calve” whilst we were anchored in Glacier Bay.
Politics – the number one industry in Alaska is tourism. There were quite a few Alaskans grumbling about Washington shutting down the timber industry for environmental reasons, and putting people out of work – they then became tour guides (LOL). Less
I was traveling solo, so I had more room than I needed. The balcony was 40 sq. ft. with 2 lounge chairs and a small table – no chez lounge. The bathroom had enough storage space, and there was plenty of closet space. The shower stall was enclosed by a curtain and ½” threshold, I thought it would leak but it never did.
