I’m Going To Hawaii Yay!

I’ve been having a lot of fun in Alaska, but I’m so glad it’s over now. Yesterday was our last embarkation in Vancouver and we are currently somewhere along the coast of Oregon. We’re on our way down to LA, where we will embark a few hundred more guests, and from there we’ll make our way over to Hawaii. We’re gonna have 5 days at sea straight, so it’s gonna be a little boring. I think I’ll be able to catch up on a bit of sleep. After that It’s Australia and New Zealand for the next 3 months or so until the end of my contract.

My last week in Alaska was quite nice. Niamh and I rented a car in Skagway and drove up to a place in Canada called Emerald Lake. It was gorgeous. The lake is a very pleasant green color, I suppose this is why they call it Emerald Lake. Because Emerald Lake is in Canada, we needed our passports in order to get there. The ship always holds crew members’ passports though, so I had to get the Hotel Manager to sign a request form in order for me to get my passport out for the day.
I’ve been promoted to Photo Manager, and I’ll be taking over those duties on Saturday when the ship ports in LA. Tino, the current manager is going to be leaving then, and I’ll be on my own for the Australia season. Should be fun! I’ll be posting plenty of photos from the South Pacific, I’m really excited about all the new places I’m gonna get to see.

    Sounds like a beautiful outing “in the paaak.” No need for a taxi, though, when you can drive yourself around. Congrats on becoming the manager. 🙂

    Manager!!!!! Congrats, that is awesome! 🙂 I just got back from LA Tuesday, it seems that our traveling schedules never quite coincide. Sigh. But I am glad that you are having a good time. And so jealous of your future travel plans! 😛 Remind me why I decided to work in a office? haha.

    Congrats, Mr. Manager! Sounds like the trip to the Emerald City…er, the Emerald Lake 🙂 sounded fun. Looking forward to seeing some pics from there.

    CONGRATULATIONS, MANAGER!!! I’m so proud of you. Have fun; I know you’ll be a good one, but you’ll also miss Tino. Ian, did you dock anywhere along the OR coast? I would have loved to have seen you there. You were so much closer to us than driving to Vancouver, Canada, but we got to do that with your folks. I’m waiting for some pictures from Hawaii, Australia and New Zealand. I love you, my #1 grandson! Grammy

    I need to meet Niamh. Now most of my family has met her but I haven’t. Not cool.

    Also… I miss you. Make sure you tell me when you will be docking in Tampa or any other American port, ok? And tell me way ahead of time.
