Glacier Bay on my Birthday

Our rooms doorway, with the balloons for my Birthday.

As we opened the cabin door to go for breakfast today there were three colorful balloons taped together right next to the door, saying “Happy Birthday”!  Yep, today was my birthday.  They do that with all Birthdays, Anniversaries, and Weddings, so we had seen lots of balloons on the cruise.  In fact the couple just next door to us was on their honeymoon!! 

Princess puts out what they call the “Patter”, a four page newsletter, every day or sometimes more often to tell of what’s going on or special events, and that sort of thing.  Mainly the things that will happen that day, what port we are visiting, what shows are on that evening, who is performing where, and other fun or semi-interesting things.  They reminded us today to repack and ready ourselves to disembark.

Today is our last full day on the ship and we are at sea the whole day.

Just after noon we say another cruise liner headed south.
  We get to Glacier Bay about 4:30 in the afternoon and will spend much of the evening just slowly cruising past the many glaciers.  

So the main thought today is to get everything repacked and ready for the land part of our tour.  One of our large suit cases will be sent on to Fairbanks where we will get it when we arrive there.  No need to keep our formal wear, dirty clothes, etc. with us.  The others will go along with us to Talkeetna, Denali, and then Fairbanks. 

At dinner tonight we sat with two other couples and enjoyed a good meal and then they served me my own little multiple layer birthday cake with a rose and a single candle.  Several waiters sang Happy Birthday to me, and one came around behind me and leaned down close and sang a love song to me.
