Day 2 - KetchikanDay 2 - Ketchikan

Today is less about the ship and more about our first port, Ketchikan, Alaska.  Ketchikan is a nice little town that has the expected shopping port area but also an actual town one could live in for reasons beyond just tourism.  This was the shortest port day and we had till around 2pm to get back on the ship.  While in Ketchikan we took a Duck Tour which toured us around the two via land and water.  There were no ducks on this tour.  The duck is what we rode in and is an amphibious vehicle.

As you can tell from the images I share, Ketchikan had a LOT of Bald Eagles.  I mean, a lot.  These are just two.  There were also many Ravens.  I don't have a lot of photos in Ketchikan.  I did take a nice photo of the welcome sign and you can see it if you go to Instagram and look up @theshutterbugeye.

While we took the Duck Tour, most cruisers were doing the zipline it seems.  I can't review that but it sure was popular.


After the port time, I took a Zumba class which was fun, if you like to dance like I do.  We also ate in our dining room that night.  The food was delicious - I had kin crab legs.  Our server was great and the three ladies, all together and from Chicago, were very nice as well.

Keeping today's post shorter as Wednesday is a long one, or at least it has lots more photos!

Don't forget, leave a comment on every Alaska post to receive a free texture pack at the end!
