North to Alaska...
Once aboard the ms Maasdam, a 5 star Cruise Ship, we settled in for the cruise North.
The crew were from Indonesia and the Phillippines so it resembled
nothing so much as an 'English as a second Language' school. The ports of call were
Juneau, Skagway and Ketchikan, with the highlight being Glacier Bay.
The cruise could have been renamed 'The pig out and shop', cruise, there was so much food on board and so many tourist trap shops on shore!
