I spent the first week of June cruising Alaska’s spectacular Inside Passage on the Crown Princess, so this summer’s Tuesday Travels will focus largely on Alaska.
Jann Audiss accompanied me as my traveling companion and we met my brother Mac and his wife Renee on board ship. Jann and I flew out of Orange County Airport very early on a Saturday morning. Bad news: getting up at 3AM. Good news: airport not crowded, so we got through check-in and TSA in about 20 minutes and had time for breakfast at Carl’s Jr.
We arrived in Seattle on a beautiful summer day, and made the transfer to the ship for a late lunch in the buffet. Our spacious balcony stateroom was ready for us and we were able to get settled in before departure.
We left Seattle in late afternoon and headed for the open seas in the company of NCL’s Norwegian Jewel, a very pretty ship.
And finally I’ll leave you with a picture of a beautiful sunset in Puget Sound.
Next stop, Juneau, Alaska!
