Hi from Hawaii Alaska #2 – We wanted to quickly share what we did today before our ship sets sail to Alaska.This morning, after having a quick cruise orientation meeting, we went to play Whirlyball. What’s Whirlyball you say? It’s only the greatest activity EVER!! It is a combination of bumber cars, lacrosse and basketball. So much fun!!!Next, we drove to the pier in Seattle to board the Carnival Spirit!
Here we are ready to board the ship:We are so excited for the cruise. We can’t wait to go gold panning, sea kayaking, whale watching, see the icebergs and glaciers, enjoy the entertainment on the ship, eats lots of good food and continue bonding with each other. Hard to believe once we get off the ship next Tuesday that we’ll be getting ready to fly to Hawaii. We want the summer to slow down!!! We set sail around 4pm our time. Bon Voyage!!!
