After leaving Vancouver we sailed all night and the next day towards Juneau. We explored the ship, I walked around and around the deck with Jill while Bill joined a computer course. later we met our friends in the Crows Nest Lounge for a trivia session. It was good to have a relaxing day after all the sight seeing we had done.
That evening we had to dress in formal wear for dinner. It wasn't too posh thank goodness. The boys put on a tie and jacket and the girls a pretty top. By this time we had made good friends with Lyn and Barry from Wollongong, and Jill and Graeme from Sydney. We often had dinner together and solved the worlds problems.
We were told to be up early and out onto the front deck the next day to see the ship navigating the narrow channel into Tracy Arm Fjord. It was freezing out there as we passed glaciers.
Then we spied the narrow opening to the fjord.
There were also icebergs floating in the entrance. They only looked small on top but who knows what is underneath. There was a catamaran in front of us which checked out the size of the icebergs to make sure it was safe for us to pass close by.
We weren't alone, a Princess Liner followed us in.
Occasionally waterfalls gushed into the fjord.
Unfortunately thick floating ice prevented the ship from going right up to the the North and South Sawyer Glaciers so we turned around and.......
....continued onto Juneau, where we were booked on an exciting shore excursion.
