It rained a lot. Okay, almost continuously, but we expected it, so it wasn't a problem. We were lucky with our excursions. We took a float plane in Juneau that flew over several glaciers. It was cloudy, but the cloud cover helped bring out the blue in the glaciers.
The cloud cover helped bring out the blue in the glaciers of Glacier Bay too. We saw -- and heard -- some impressive calving.
Ketchikan was charming with its totem poles and water and trees taking advantage of the short growing season. Reminded me of the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont somewhat.
Onboard, we had great meals, great shows, spas, talented musicians, new friendships, and the Filipino part of the crew (crew was either Filipino or Indonesian) even entertained us one day with a show.
It was a great time, definitely worth the wait.
