The Alaskan Adventure - Part Two: Sailing North

We spent the first two and half days of the cruise pretty much at sea. It gave us a chance to get to know the ship and enjoy all the amazing Disney amenities. We also ran into a few familiar characters wandering the ship. Ty had fun in the kids' activities club, and it was even warm enough to enjoy a swim in the pool (the pools were heated of course). 

Once we sailed up through Canada, our first real glimpse of the Alaskan wonders was at Tracy Arm near Juneau. We did not get off the ship, but rather the boat made its way through a fjord carved by the massive Sawyer Glacier which we pulled up to within a few hundred yards. We sat there for awhile and even saw a few chunks calve off which was incredible. In the last photo of this set, you can see it behind Ty.
