2017 Carnival Legend Alaskan Cruise - Day 1-3

One of Annita and I's favorite vacations are cruises and this year I got to check off one of my bucket list cruises, Alaska.  Annita has been to Alaska for work before and she told me how beautiful it was but until you experience it for yourself you really just don't know.  We decided to take one of the last cruises out of Seattle with Carnival cruise lines on the Carnival Legend cruise ship with some good friends of ours Ryan and Sarah Rovnak. 

The cruise started off in Seattle where we essentially just went from the airport to the dock to jump on the boat.  We were soon on board and ready for our 7 days of Alaskan adventure!  The itinerary was Day 1 - Seattle, Day 2 - Fun Day at Sea, Day 3 - Cruise Tracy Arm Fjord, Day 4 - Skagway, Day 5 - Juneau, Day 6 - Ketchikan, Day 7 - Victoria BC, Day 8 - arrive back in Seattle.

The First day was getting oriented on the ship and really getting ourselves settled for the next 7 days aboard the boat.  Day 3 brought us to our first destination which was a cruise of the Tracy Arm Fjord which would lead us to the Sawyer Glacier.  While it was a bit rainy and overcast the views were absolutly stunning.
