Our biggest decision is no longer "which cocktail bar shall we play Texas Hold 'Em in? " ...
...but "where shall we have dinner tonight"? There are 3 dining rooms to choose from, as well as many themed specialty restaurants $$$.
That night's entertainment demonstrated why I love cruise shows: it was a hodgepodge of performances staged by the crew! The crew performers were mostly men singers and a group of singing/dancing cooks. One of the men was so good it brought tears to my eyes that his special light was hidden in the cold food locker of the cruise ship kitchen. Doesn't seem right.
Soo-Eeee was responsible for some drama because she was unable to locate her Passport. I checked with the Tour Operator to see if there was any wiggle room where the passport issue was concerned but Noooooo...they would wait a few minutes for me to tear my cabin apart but I had to have it to take part in the bike ride which began in Canada. I raced back on ship and tore the cabin apart--no passport! The Tour Operator refunded the bike half of the activity and I was able to go on the train ride since it was round trip with no disembarkation in Canada. I was disappointed but glad to be able to go on the train, even if it was all my myself!
I would later recall that I put my ID and credit cards in my yellow slicker rain gear in Ketchikan and thought it remained in one of the pockets...
Here is a glacier-- see the blue at the base of the white snowpile?

The link is pretty entertaining.
The Red Onion is an infamous brothel where the bar servers (madams) wore tight bustiers hoisting their lady parts up to their noses. The pictures on the wall are all ...racy.
Our time at Skagway was awesome.
PS. The next day, I reached into my tiny shoulder bag--the fourth compartment--and there was my passport. It was a new bag purchased just for the cruise and I had forgotten there were FOUR compartments... I had it with me the entire time.
