Woke up today on the Nieuw Amsterdam to a lot of rain and a lot of light. Sunrise was at 4:45 am. I got up around that time, only to shut the blinds even more.
Glacier Bay Viewing
Pictures don’t give Glacier Bay in Alaska any justice. The ship seems so tiny going between towering glaciers and rugged snow-capped mountains. As mentioned before, this is one of the main reasons why you should always book a balcony on an Alaskan cruise. Yes, there is public spaces like the Crow’s Nest, deck three, and the front of the ship – but you’ll always have 100s of other people jockeying for the same space unless you get out there and claim your spot early.
