Alaskan Cruise 2011

Day Six: College Fjord Cruising, Alaska

Today was the second of two days of scenic cruising, today being a visit to College Fjord.

The day started as usual with breakfast at the buffet. After we had finished up the ship's staff began setting up a large dessert buffet in the main dining area. We were all too full to get any of it though.

Then as yesterday, the ship sailed slowly into the fjord and stopped at one of the glaciers. The ship remained for about an hour. It was a bit cloudier and much foggier than the day before, which made photography a bit of a challenge. At one point a small boat with a few of the ship's photographers was lowered into the water. They motored around the ship and took pictures of everyone on deck or on their balconies. The picture they took of us is the large thumbnail below.

Just before midnight the ship arrived at the Whittier cruise terminal, where we would disembark the next day. As can be seen from the last two pics it was still rather light out.
