The norovirus outbreak is under control and we are back to our regular green level. Several crew members celebrated by having dinner in the passenger buffet the first night we were back to green. I’m glad I get to go back out on the decks now. Also went to a lecture on whales, and saw a comedian the other night.
Yesterday I went on an afternoon tour in a rain forest in Ketchikan. Didn’t see any black bears, but learned a lot about the plant life in the area. I’ll try to upload some photos when I have more time. Today we’re in Juneau and I have the day off. I’m going to go on another rain forest hike then on a whale watching tour. I’m hoping to see some orcas this time rather than the same old boring humpbacks I keep seeing everywhere. Ha ha, only kidding – I still get excited when I see a whale, no matter what species.
The other night I went to a disco (in American English that would be dance party) in the crew bar and it was FUN! I haven’t gone out dancing to loud crappy music in a long time, and I really needed it. There’s going to be another disco celebrating Canada Day on July 1st. A lot of my friends here on the ship are Canadian so it should be great fun, eh?
