Seven Seas Mariner

Seven Seas Mariner

After seemingly endless hours in the air, an overnight in Achorage and a three hour bus ride, I finally arrived at our sake cruise ship in Seward, Alaska.

We’re sailing on the Seven Seas Mariner and it sure was an impressive site catching the first glimpse of the ship as we approached the dock. I’ve never been on a cruise, so this was my first time seeing a cruise ship up close.

After checking in and boarding, we did a quick self guided tour of the public decks to get oriented and then it was off to watch our sailing out from the main observation lounge. The most amazing thing happened – Out of nowhere we saw a huge rainbow appear right outside our window. It was beautiful and everyone agreed it was a good sign for a great sailing.

My Sake Seminars on board don’t start until day after tomorrow, so I have a chance to get my sea legs and acclimate to life onboard ship. I think I’ll need that time to get my sea legs… as soon as we left the port at Seward, the ship was hit with 40 mph winds and strong waves. This is not what I expected but I am enjoying the adventure.

We’ll dock tomorrow in Kodiak Alaska, so that will offer some protection from the strong waves. I really hope the seas will calm down before the sake starts flowing! Stay Tuned…
