We're just back from the most incredible trip to Alaska. I had never considered taking a cruise anywhere, but when we were invited to join my folks for their 40th wedding anniversary on a cruise to Alaska, we couldn't pass up the opportunity.
There were definitely some Wall-E moments on the cruise ship (folks on electric scooters endlessly eating,) however, we quickly found the secluded places on the ship. With a little exploration, you could find your own near-private outdoor deck or reading nook. With a few extra layers, we sat on the outer deck for hours as the ship slipped quietly through the water.
