Alaska Cruise: At Sea: Inside Passage (7/30/2019)

Tuesday, July 30, 2019
At Sea: Inside Passage cruising day. Apparently during the night we sailed northwest through the Strait of Georgia and perhaps along the east side of Vancouver Island, through Discovery Passage and Seymour Narrows.
Inside Passage (8:00)
Breakfast: Garden Café.
It seems we spent the day sailing along Queen Charlotte Sound off the coast of British Columbia, since we saw mostly water.

We have been exploring the ship, playing Trivia with Cruise Staff, going to the Card Room to play Scrabble or Rummy. The boys have been swimming, driving golf balls, or shuffling shuffleboard pucks.

At some point we must have had lunch (Tsar's Palace with table service) and dinner (Chin Chin Asian Restaurant, a disappointment)!

Before bed tonight, we have to turn the clocks back an hour. Alaska has its own time zone, although the Aleutian Islands share a time zone with Hawaii.
Next: Ketchikan I.
