Alaska Cruise – Day 8

Today was a sea day, and after how busy the last three days have been, that was really welcome. We had a balcony breakfast with even more of that delicious salmon before dropping Reese off at the kids center for his Junior Chef at Sea activity. They were getting together with the ship’s pastry chef to make some sort of dessert for us. While he was out, we started packing up some of our clothes and loot because, sadly, the cruise is coming to it’s end. We did a little running around, sorted through some of the pictures that the ship’s photographers took of us, and just relaxed for the rest of the time before dinner.

Tonight was the second, and final, formal night of the cruise, which we used to get some more good portraits of all of us in various groupings. After we got done with the picture taking, we let Reese go back up to the kids club for dinner instead of hanging out with the adults at the formal dining. They served Baked Alaska for dessert tonight, including a parade where the waiters marched around the dining room in a conga line carrying them with the lights out. It’s the first time any of us had had it, and it was pretty tasty. We also got Reese’s dessert delivered to the table. He made, iced, and decorated a two layer cake that is going to be our breakfast pastry tomorrow morning.

After that we went back to the cabins and turned in. We’ve got another almost sea day tomorrow before we arrive in Victoria, BC later in the evening.
