One of the things I most enjoy on cruises is the entertainment, even when it is a bit amateurish or hokey. But, noone could have been prepared for the night invasion of "Nickelodeon".
I decry this invasion of adult space! I flounced up off my seat and left to go to the Bar, thinking that they wouldn't dare let Nickelodeon characters in the bar!
Wrong again, Sooo-Eeeee. After the Bingo game--an activity for ADULTS only involving gambling and drinks in the Bar, the next entertainment group began to set up and ----HORRORS--it is SpongePants and his pink starfish sidekick again!
And, they added another character named Dora. Now it is time for stiff letter of protest! Not only did our little group summarily depart the bar with drinks in hand, half the bar got up and left! Take THAT on your bottom line, NCL! Maybe you can make your money off apple juice in sippy cups!
End of Rant.
Next stop: Juneau. It looked like this:
Take a look at the squeegee he is using! We thought we might take up a collection for a "Big Boy Squeegee".
Pity the poor souls who purchased expensive shore excursions. We saw them return to the ship cold, wet, grumpy and shivering. It was the only port where none of us bought an excursion.
My personal favorite was huge, sweet, ripe strawberries dipped in a chocolate shell.
The experience of BEING among the massive steep walls, passing another cruise ship in the narrow passage and seeing icebergs sweep past was exciting.
