Short voyage is long on fun

Jul 3rd, 2017 | By | Category: Adventures

Sometimes you can do the smallest thing and it makes all the difference in the world.

We took a small group on Holland America’s Amsterdam for an overnight cruise from Vancouver to Seattle. A nice drive to Vancouver (a couple took Amtrak), and then onto the ship for the cruise back.

You are transported into the cruise world with all the pleasures of cruising. You enjoy the shops, the lounges, the duty-free, the entertainment and the meals. When all is said and done with your day, you retreat to your cabin for a lovely night’s sleep and wake up the next morning in Seattle. These cruises are only offered at the beginning and end of the Alaska cruise season but are truly a great little adventure. We will plan on doing it again and may even extend it to one of the three-day adventures out of San Francisco.

Sometimes you just need something to transport you into another world.  We will do that in July when we take a day trip into Seattle and the Pacific Science Center. The Terra Cotta Warriors are on exhibit.  Seattle is one of the very few stops where the public will be able to view these statues which were uncovered in China.

It is summer and time to get out and enjoy everything.  Stay in touch for quick trips. Those are the day trips that come up suddenly. They are announced to the e-mail list, so be sure that you have been added to that list in order to find out what is going on.  We will probably take off for the ocean or the mountain, but it will be on short notice.

Now is also the time to sign up for those bigger trips — Mexican Coastal cruise in January,  Cuba in February, Viking  river cruises in April, Albuquerque Balloon Festival for October 2018.
