This evening we set sail on our fourth cruise. This will be our longest one yet: 10 days aboard Holland America‘s Ms. Eurodam bound for Canada and New England.
We’ve never traveled Holland America before. The last three cruises have all been on Carnival.
We might’ve sailed with Carnival again for this cruise, too, except Holland America’s ports appealed to us more.
The last long cruise was in 2008 to Alaska –7 days that time. (But our last cruise was November 2009 to Key West and the Bahamas.)
I happened to come across a video in my vaults that I’d put together from our Alaskan cruise. It’s an even more amateaurish attempt than most of the other vids I try to put together, but it brings back some happy memories.
Kind of. Only two of the four ports made it into pics. Wayne decided to lose me in Skagway and I spent the whole day fuming at him. Then the next day in Juneau I was in a mood and we argued our way all over town. I remember taking pictures in both ports, but I failed to include them in my video.
But we had good times in Anchorage, Sitka, Ketchikan, and Vancouver and those pics made it in.
I also included a funny video I took of two fisher kids in Sitka. They about bowled us off the sidewalk as they hurried to drop their polls in the water and catch salmon. I was too far away to really get a good image of it, but the little boogers were “fishing” (can’t even call it that, what they were doing was clearly cheating!) right next to a hatchery!
I can’t help but wonder what kind of adventures (and misadventures, because we always have a few!) we’ll have on our Canada/New England cruise. I’m about to find out…
(By the way, Happy Labor Day!)
