I was about to try to figure out when this was exactly from when I just glanced at the picture and realized I didn’t have to think too hard. This is from May 14, 2000, when I took my first and only cruise so far. I know in the last few years cruises have taken more than a few lumps, and rightly so, but I had no issues with my cruise. It was also my first trip to Alaska, which I am happy to say was not the one and only time. I had a good time and fell in love with the state.
