May 12, 2011 - Alaska Cruise on the Wonder - Cruise - Day 3

Today was really cold.  We worked our way up to Tracy Arm, which was a spectacular view of all the amazing mountain ranges.  We woke up around 7:30am and ate breakfast at Beach Blanket Buffet.  We went to a presentation after breakfast about one man’s journey down the Yukon River in a kayak.  After that it was all about scenery while we made our way up to Tracy Arm.  Along the way, we saw whales breaching!  Such an amazing site to see, even if you’ve seen it before.  The Disney characters were prowling the decks in their winter outfits throughout the day.  As we got closer to Tracy Arm and the glacier, the weather got colder and icebergs starting showing up in the water.  By the time we made it to the glacier there were so many icebergs it was amazing with the glacier in the background.  Also, we had prime viewing of the glacier, since we had our massage rescheduled for today.  We ended up in the Jacuzzi at the same time we came up to the glacier.  It couldn’t have been better.  After our spa treatment, which included a hot stone massage for her and a seaweed wrap and massage for me, we headed back down to our room to get ready for dinner.

Dinner was good; we ate at Parrot Cay tonight.  After Parrot Cay, we headed back to our room to call it a night.  Tomorrow, Skagway!

Here are some pictures from Tracy Arm.  Amazing sites!
