The Last Day of the Cruise

This post is long overdue and wraps up our 7-day Alaskan cruise. Our last day was spent going through the inside passage between Vancouver Island and the mainland. The weather wasn't great, but we spent most of our waking hours on our balcony, watching the scenery flow by and watching for wildlife.

The World Cup was still in full swing, so we had breakfast in our room and watched the England/Sweden game. Earlier in the week we booked a spin class, so I went to that, and then for fun did a couple of laps of the running track around the ship - very hard when you come into the wind!

After that, we watched the Russia/Croatia game in our room, then chilled out a bit before heading down to get some lunch, which we brought back to our room to eat on the patio. It was pretty cold out, but you could bundle up and watch the scenery. We were headed into an area where we were much closer to shore, and could see land, and were expecting to see some wildlife.

Eventually we headed down and had one last fantastic meal in the main dining room. After dinner we hung out in the cafe and listened to live music, grabbed a last drink and headed off to bed. By the time time we awoke in the morning, we were docked back in Vancouver and it was time to head home and back to reality.

 Home again - the last view from our well-used balcony.
