Alaskan Cruise...Day 1

The Golden Princess was built in 2001; the overall length is 951 feet and the overall width is 118 feet. The normal passenger capacity is 2,600 and the normal crew is 1,150 people. The cruising speed is 22.5 knots.

Saturday, we flew to Seattle then took a bus to the dock. This is the view of the ship from the bus.

We went through customs then went on dock to board. This picture was taken from the dock just before we went through another security check point.
These pictures were taken from the balcony of our stateroom. This first picture is a fishing boat based out of Seattle.

We could see the Space Needle from our balcony. There was a lot of activity in the harbor.

This is a Holland ship that cruised the same route that our ship did. Whenever we docked, they docked behind us.

At sea... it was a little chilly out on the deck but the air was refreshing. I got my sea legs right away and did not get sea sick at all.
Next I will post pictures of Juneau for Day 2.

    Wow, Jo, I love these pictures! Can't wait to hear more about your cruise.

    Welcome home.

    By the way, it's San, not Flannery. Flannery has been logged in on my laptop, and I'm too tired to assume my own identity. It's been a long weekend, and Flan has more energy.

    :-D
