After all hopes of going sledding were dashed Mom decided to just stay
in our suite and enjoy the sites from our verandah. Dad and I decided
to venture out into town. We spent several hours walking around
looking at all of the touristy stores. It's too bad these towns have
been so commercialized. The views are truly the best part. We got back
on the ship in time for me to get to the spa. I scheduled a wonderful
deep tissue massage - it was just what I needed. Mom and Dad stayed in
the room enjoying a cocktail. I came back and opted for some champagne
out of our bar. We all sort of skipped lunch, so we had our butler
bring some canapés - shrimp, caviar, and some hummus. We had dinner
reservations in the Italian restaurant, La Terrazza, that featured the
region of Tuscany. We bad a fantastic meal (of course) that included
antipasti, Prosecco, several other courses and the best part - veal
scalopinni. It was incredible. There was still some time before the
evening show, so we went to the bar to listen to some music. At 10:00
pm they had The Liars Club where we had to figure out who was telling
the truth. The cruise director David again joined us and we spent a
while talking with him. By 12:30 am it was time to call it a day.

So sad about the dog sledding. :-( AT least dinner sounds like it was wonderful!

One of the best parts of the Alaskan cruise are the views from the ship. The train ride should be fun. Kathleen
