Alaskan Cruise: Juneau

We had survived our sea day! After another leisurely breakfast, we headed out on to the open decks and could see land again! We knew we were getting close!

Hanging out at the Horizon Terrace pool deck area, we took in the sights and snapped pics of the nearby mountains. Mid-morning, Juneau started to come into view. We docked at 11am.

Juneau is hemmed in by the mountains on one side and the sea on the other. It’s the only state capital that you cannot drive to. You need to fly in or take a boat.

After disembarking, we knew what we wanted: Alaskan king crab! So we made a beeline to Tracy’s King Crab Shack. We feasted on some of the largest crab legs I’ve ever seen, along with some excellent scallops. Highly recommended!

After lunch at Tracy’s, we had a bit of time to walk around Juneau and pick up some souvenirs. Then it was off on our shore excursions: Harv and Marv’s whale watching and Mendenhall Glacier – both fantastic experiences that I will write separate blog posts about.

All aboard was 10pm and it wasn’t even dark yet…Juneau was fantastic!

Here is the Princess Patter for the day:
