Mini-Update

So, I did not bring my laptop, so writing is a bit of a chore, despite the Swype option on my Droid.

Also, I don’t have a signal when sailing.  Right now we are in Skagway, and this will be the last time I will have a signal until Sunday.  Between now and then we will be sailing, and then in Canadian waters (massive roaming charges).

But, while in port, I can send a few photos.

The walking path around the ship.  Six laps are about a mile.

O.K.  . . .  Got to eat now.

    Lots of Oooh’s and Ahhh’s from mom and I. I clicked on the photos but nothing happens. But that does not diminish the beauty of the subjects and the photos (including that guy taking the pictures). Well, at least that proves that you’re really on that ship and that these are not stock photos!

    i will take some of the loaves of bread. the bedrooms look close encounters. i would have to get out of there and sleep on the deck. looks beautiful where you are. or were.

  5. Cruise food doesn’t look bad, not bad at all. Hope you didn’t have a slimming plan. Bon voyage, Alaska would be some goal.

    Why do you have two televisions right next to each other =/ I mean I know why, but surely a swivling platform would have been more cost effective haha. Anyway these shots are awesome, I’m so hungry right now after looking at these!

      Yeah, I did not get that either. But. it worked out . . . the few times we spent time in the cabin, I could read and keep an eye on the live feed from the bridge (to see if anything interesting was coming up ahead), and Melisa could watch a movie or other show. Also, one is visible from the balcony . . . for whatever reason.

        That sounds awesome, a live feed from the bridge, it’s almost like surveillance!

          Yeah, not that awesome . . . it’s essentially a wider view of the third to last photo above. You don’t actually see the bridge; you see what someone on the bridge would see ahead of them.

          On the other hand, there are cameras all over the ship . . . but I did not have access to that feed.

          Still you would still catch someone doing a titanic “I’m flying Jack!” moment at the front of the ship. Man, that’d be the first thing I’d do if I went on a cruise.

          You would have been disappointed on this ship . . . no access to the bow. You can do that off the back, but from deck 7 (there are 15 decks). While the view is nice, it would not have the same impact when you yell “I’m being dragged along by a big-ass ship!”
