The captain first announced it before we started going down the passage way. He explained the visibility was reported as being low at Tracy Arm and they would make the decision when we got closer as to if we would go there or detour to Dawes glacier since they were at a fork in the water. Did anybody else see the glacier that was just outside of Ketchikan I think it was [may have been Skagway but I'm too tired to remember right now]. They had told us that you could normally see it but the clouds were lower during the day. After dinner I was up on deck 9 getting some hot chocolate [must have been skipping the movie night] and we were passing it. It was just hanging down from the top of the mountain.

I wish they would change the announcements system. The announcements SHOULD be heard in the staterooms with an option to turn it off if someone is napping. We were up on deck for part of that day or watched from our verandah wrapped in blankets. By the time we would run in, turn tv on to the right channel we would miss some of the announcement.

I posted some photos by the ship's photographers on FB today and I hope to finally go through my many, many photos soon.

Did anyone see the video about the glacier calving? Was that when we were there? I remember someone telling about a big one falling and coming close to a small boat.

Do a search on YouTube using "Holy Crap".

I had a hard time understanding anything the Captain was saying, even when I stopped and listened real hard. Dennis heard that we might not go to Tracy Arm, but we never heard an announcement as to where we actually were. I'm thinking it did not matter, both beautiful and amazing.

Thanks again everyone for letting us join in your FE. We had lots of fun with it. We took our FE down a couple times thinking it must be done to come back and find something else - so we put it back up again.

I didn't know we never went to Tracy Arm until I was reading the last few posts. Who knew

I found the weather a bit cool. Mostly just wore an extra sweatshirt (one day a toque while on deck) and then my husband's coat sometimes also.

Had a blast. Still haven't downloaded my pics.

Also, still waiting to hear from disney about the photos that I bought and left up on deck 10.

OH NO!!!! You might want to contact the company that handles the photos themselves. Who knows. Their email/website is in the FAQ thread.

Finally getting to look through some of my photos tonight. I have posted some on Facebook.

Question? Are we going to continue here or move back to the Geek thread? If we move back could someone post the link for me? Thanks.

WOW NEVER KNEW IT!!! It was very misty on deck 10 so we all went back to our rooms and then later in the day went to the tea party. I even think they mentioned on how wonderful Tracey Arm was that day. WOW!!! Oh well it was still beautiful.

Just wanted to say a big THANK YOU to everyone for a great cruise and FE Exchange. We loved all the wonderful gifts. DS was very excited to see all of the presents. We enjoyed meeting other DISers on the cruise and at ports of call. Hopefully we can sail together again soon.

We'll be on PCC 3.0. Please let us know if you will be sailing then too.

Kate

I wish I was back on the Wonder, sitting in the Outlook Cafe, sipping a hot chocolate with whipped cream, gazing at Alaska's wonderful scenery. But I am at my desk, trying to work.
