All this cruising talk makes a guy want to book a cruise.

That's very funny, Gary; you're in the wrong place if you are looking for reasons NOT to cruise.

PLB, you are about to see the most awesome scenery anywhere in the world! When you return, you will find that it's difficult to find words to describe it.

We have been on two Alaska cruises, both times sailing in Mid-May. The sunsets seem to last for a couple hours. Only a few hours after it is dark, it starts getting light again!

Enjoy your cruise!

On our first Alaska cruise it was noteworthy to me that, on our morning cruising down a fjord to see a glacier, there was a distinct lack of noise from the passengers. Everyone was so peaceful and quiet. It was like we were in a house of worship with the high mountains all around us, the glacier approaching in the distance, seals and otters on either side of us. I had one of the best senses of well-being I've ever experienced that morning. I also realized how insignificant I was to the grandeur of the planet. It really was a time for reflection.


But then again it could have been the hot chocolate with a couple shots of amaretto in it.

Boy Dave, I hadn't thought about that in years, but you are exactly right--every time we were in Glacier Bay people spoke almost in whispers, even inside the ship, as if they sensed they were in the presence of something great and powerful, yet sacred, pristine and beautiful.

Thank you for stirring that long-dormant memory.
