Cruising in Tracy Arm
Tracy Arm is a fjord with fantastic views of a glacier. The ship cruised very slowly up through the fjord and back, which took the entire day.
After lunch, we got kitted up with our hats, mittens, scarves and jackets and wandered around on Deck 9 and 10. It was pretty busy on the decks with people milling around taking photos and just taking in the spectacular views. We were very lucky to have a clear, sunny day with no rain whatsoever. It was a bit chilly up on the decks though, due to the wind.
The water was brilliantly blue, the mountain tops green - such beautiful scenery, words don't do justice, so here are a few of the many photos we took.
The kids were a bit bored, so we had scavenged some extra desserts from the Beach Blanket Buffet (blue Jell-o cups!) and then they ran around
Once again, we took every opportunity to get in front of a ship's photographer.

By this point, DD2 was exhausted and finally fell asleep. We were at the forward (head) of the ship, at which point the ship turned around to go back out to sea.
As you can see, DH found the weather 'pleasant' and ditched the jacket in favour of just a t-shirt.
