Loving the cruise report so far! This is a trip we hope to do next year.

While looking at your pictures in downtown Seattle, I had déjà vu. The picture you took of the Space Needle was in the area right below our hotel room window in Seattle! We stayed at that Best Western a few weeks ago. The walk to the Space Needle was almost non-existent from there, and our hotel room view was incredible at night.

It's fun seeing the two of you in my neck of the woods, the PNW is truly a beautiful part of the US. I'm glad that you've had a chance to see some of it.

The photo of the Rhododendron bloom is lovely, what a vibrant color.

I'm looking forward to your cruise starting, I hope to go on one someday.

That's funny about the hotel!! I'm sure it looked QUITE familiar. Seemed like a great location!

We definitely love the PNW. I've been up a number of times to visit my aunt through the years and have always thought it was beautiful. If only we could handle rain a little better, there are times when we've said we'd like to live there...

I thought those flowers were really pretty too! It was nice to see the lovely foliage welcoming us to Canada.

You're in luck, as the cruise part of the blog is about to start! We met a lot of people from the Seattle/Vancouver area who took this cruise specifically because they didn't have to pay for airfare on top of the cost, so maybe you can head to Alaska sometime!

You can't miss my DH. He's a big burly USMC redneck w/ a fanny pack and acting like a kid who can't wait for the next ride at WDW.

Thanks for all the info on the different areas of Vancouver. We now know which areas to avoid.

I feel like all we found were pretty much the areas to avoid. We did NOT do a good job researching Vancouver... We knew we wouldn't be there for long enough to take decent advantage of the city anyway, but a little more information might have been nice.

Awe! Stopped right there! I want to see the inside of that ship lol.

I personally extremely nervous about cruises so I can't wait to read more. Maybe it will change me. 😊😊

What a coincidence!! We must have walked past your room many, many times! Did you have any sort of fish extender or white board or magnets that would have been memorable? I feel like everyone in our hallway had fun things on their doors except us because we didn't know to bring decorations...

Just building suspense But now you can check it out!

Hopefully reading about the cruise will sway you toward trying one out! We loved it way more than we even expected to!

This is all AWESOME! Thanks for finding it! I need to go back and update that post now. Of course, now that I hear the song again, I realize that I had remembered the melody slightly wrong, but it's still as much of an ear worm as it was in Vancouver.
