The Accidental Cruiser


Last stop...Victoria

Victoria BC, Alaskan Cruise and 4 more...
Last stop...Victoria We stood on deck and watched as Ketchikan slowly got smaller and smaller as we pulled farther and farther away.  My only complaint about today was that I wished we had more time to spend in what was my current favorite port city of the cruise. We spent the rest of the beautiful sunny day out on deck, snapping photos and watching for whales.  It was so bit...

Kayaking in Ketchikan

Kayaking in Ketchikan “Blinded by the light…”  That song came immediately to mind when I opened our curtains on the morning we arrived in Ketchikan.  After two days of drizzle and overcast skies, it was almost a cornea-burning shock to see the pristine sapphire blue skies and blazing early morning sunshine that greeted us that morning. My first thought of Ke...


Windex Blue

Tracy Arm Fjord, Alaska Cruise and 2 more...
Windex Blue It hit me this morning that our cruise was more than halfway over.  This amazing and wonderful surprise of a vacation has gone from something that I was almost dreading to begin, to something that I most certainly dread being over.  While it was obvious that I had come to love cruising accidentally, it was with total certainty that I knew I would do this...


Wait...was that a hobbit?

Alaskan cruise, Skagway and 5 more...
Wait...was that a hobbit? By the time we woke up the next morning, we had already been docked in Skagway for two hours.  Knowing we couldn’t pick up our car until noon, we really had no reason to rush out of bed.  When I flung the curtains back that morning, I was a little disappointed to be greeted by overcast skies.  I then corrected myself, with a firm shake of the head,...


How do you trump such a perfect day?

Juneau, Mendenhall Glacier and 5 more...
How do you trump such a perfect day? Still .  That’s the first thing that came to mind when I woke up early that next morning.  Totally and completely still.   Excitedly I threw back the covers and ran out onto our balcony.   I felt like I was on sensory overload when I saw what was waiting for me behind the closed curtains.  The ship was gliding slowly and silently through a narrow pa...


Is this what duct tape is for?

First cruise, Alaskan Cruise and 7 more...
Is this what duct tape is for? My very first sea day!  I was so excited to get up and explore this gorgeous ship some more.  I woke up that first morning, though, to the strangest sensation.  It felt like the bed was sliding across the floor…back and forth, back and forth.  It took a few seconds before realization finally dawned on me, “Ohhhhhhh.  Now  I can feel it mo...

Do these shoes make me look cruise-y?

Alaska cruise, Seattle and 8 more...
Do these shoes make me look cruise-y? I literally saw every single hour pass on the hotel alarm clock display.  I couldn’t sleep, I was too excited.  Too nervous, too anxious, too ohmygoshthisisreallyhappening sort of excited.  I finally couldn’t stand it any longer and decided to start getting ready about 6:00 am.  Hey, a girl needs her time to get her face on.  I have to confess...

“Boarding has now begun for all first class passengers heading to Seattle.”I looked again at my boarding pass which clearly still read, “Coach.”  I honestly kept expecting to see it magically change to “First Class,” but alas, it never did.  Oh well, a girl can dream.  I’d never imagined myself taking a cruise, mu...
