Cruising Alaska: Day 1 Seattle

We got to Seattle early for our cruise, so we were one of the very first people on the boat. We were thinking that we were going to have to wait until 1 to get on, but they let us on at 11. The boat was HUGE! I am amazed at how much they can fit on a boat. When we got on, we just explored the boat for a while. Here is Jason up on the Deck.
Here is the outdoor pool. I think that the whole time we probably saw 2 people in it.
For lunch, we went to the Windjammer Cafe. It is an all you can eat buffet. They had all types of weird foods, but I decided that I just wanted the hamburger and fries. Those were the BEST fries that I have ever eaten.
After everyone was on the boat, they had a maditory emergency evacuation drill. So, we all put our life jackets on and went to out Muster points. We were just hoping that was the only time that we would have to do that. The first day was pretty much spent learning the things to do on the boat. Sailing out was pretty fun. I think that it is always fun to see land from the ocean.

Every night we went to a show. The first show was a comedian named Tony Daro. He was pretty funny. Everything he said was excatly right, but so funny. After the show, we were pretty tired, so we decided to make it an early night, so we would be wide awake for the activities the next day.

Jason looks pretty happy with that life jacket on. Did he keep it as a souvenir?

So exciting... the first day! No one used the outdoor pool? Was it cold? One of these days Ly and I will have to go on a cruise.
