Friday. Our last full day on board. We dock about midnight and disembark around 7.30am tomorrow.
After a good nights sleep of being rocked gently by the open seas, we staggered up for breakfast. If was like trying to walk when quite drunk, but in denial. "The floor is moving".
After another oversized breakfast up on the top deck, we saw a presentation by the Executive Chef and the Maître D'Hotel. It was like a comedy 'master chef' class, after which we had a tour through one of the huge kitchens on board.
As we are at sea all day today, we attend a few other presentations about Alaska and a recap of what was seen at Glacier Bay yesterday.
The afternoon was an unexpected treat as the ship passed by, then circled around another 3 large glaciers, the largest being 3km wide. The glaciers are streaked with black gravel and rocks that fall onto the ice during it's very slow passage down the valley. At the cliff face, a deep aquamarine blue can sometimes be seen also.
After dinner, the crew put on a farewell concert, that like other performances on the ship, was very well done and very funny at times.
After the concert, we braved the cold breeze to have another look out on the deck. 11pm and still daylight! Not sure how I'll cope with the 5pm winter sunsets at home in a week or so.
