On day two of our cruise, the Oosterdam continued its northward course towards our first port of call. Before reaching Juneau we were to spend most of the day sailing through the inside passage.
In the morning we had ordered breakfast in our stateroom, a service that always delivered the tastiest of dishes in a timely manner. By ticking the appropriate selections on the form and hanging it on our door knob by 2am ensured the prompt arrival at a time we desired.
out onto the Lido deck, we spotted some Dall Porpoises off the
starboard bow, and watched them jumping out of the sea. We spent the rest of
the day relaxing and exploring the inside of the ship
We retired early, but soon awoke to the lack of night! At 3am we wandered onto our balcony and enjoyed the land of the midnight sun. As the cruise ship silently drifted past the landscape, beautiful colors played over the early morning sky. A myriad of reds, yellows, oranges and gold's, mingled with every blue you could imagine, started to illuminate distant snow clad mountains.
As the sun started to peak over the mountains, more details on the nearby land could be made out. Glaciers hung down in valleys, and waterfalls tumbled down to the sea.
