Looking back on our cruise aboard the SS Legacy, we had so many unexpected and amazing memories. We truly felt blessed beyond expectations with the number of whales, orca, and other animals we encountered along the route. I had expected to feel like we were one of many cruise ships touring around Alaska but for most of our trip, we felt completely alone on the serene waters. We also felt pampered beyond our expectations. There was always a drink or snack available if we wanted it. We each received a complimentary massage during the cruise. We spent a few nights playing poker with other guests in the Pesky Barnacle Bar, located on the back end of ship. It was complete with a poker table, chest of Gold Rush costumes, and a serve-yourself whisky bar. What more could you ask for?
The last evening before we disembarked in Seattle, we sat in the dining hall listening to Captain Dano's final speech goodbye. He is actually an award-winning story teller and had graced us with a story or two along the cruise. The mountains and sea around us must have known this was a the end of our cruise and came out in full glory with this sunset farewell.
