Alaskan Cruise: Day 7

Our very last full day on the cruise was also the most cold, windy and rainy day we had. Good thing we could just stay indoors.

At the Frozen meet and greet.

Laughing with Minnie. 

She was petting Pluto. 

Not much help packing. 

Alaskan Cruise: Day 6

Today's stop in Ketchikan was my favorite. We went to a lumberjack show, fish and chips for lunch and walked around the famous Creek Street district. 
The Great Alaskan Lumberjack Show. It was a lot of fun! 

Watching the competition.

Meeting Dug and Russell that evening. Claudia doesn't know them but they are from mommy's favorite Pixar movie.

Sulley from Monster's, Inc. Claudia didn't know him either but he was furry and fun so we had to meet him, too.

A family photo before dinner. 

Alaskan Cruise: Day 5

Today we docked in Juneau. We enjoyed taking a bus to Mendenhall Glacier, lunch at Tracy's Crab Shack and then a quick trip up the Mt. Roberts Tram.

Tracy's King Crab Shack. This has been on my bucket list for months and did not disappoint.

Definitely the best crab I have ever eaten.

A view from the top of Mt. Roberts. We took a tram up. 

At dinner that evening. 

Meeting Woody from Toy Story. After dinner we went to see Toy Story the Musical. Claudia was captivated and sat through the entire show. 

Meeting Jessie. 

Alaskan Cruise: Day 4

Today we stopped in Skagway, Alaska. We were able to get off the boat, do some shopping and we had a delicious lunch at the Skagway Brewing Company.

A chance encounter with Cinderella. (Claudia had no idea who she was.) 

Welcome to Skagway!

With mommy!

Alaskan Cruise: Day 3

Our day started out with a character breakfast, then playtime before heading outdoors for the day. We were supposed to see the glacier and wildlife while floating through Tracy Arm but too much ice caused us to go to Endicott Arm instead - it was still beautiful.

Another Goofy encounter. 

Minnie at breakfast. 
Belle showed up at play time but Claudia had no idea who she was.

Outside watching the scenary.

We finally bribed Claudia to take a nap in the stroller. We didn't want to miss out on the glacier but she was worn out. Thankfully, she complied. 

Meeting Goofy again that night. 

With Chip and Dale.

Daisy - she's so sassy.
The head server (manager) dancing with Claudia. He always made a big fuss over her. 

Alaskan Cruise: Day 2

A windy encounter with Minnie Mouse. 

Meeting Donald Duck.

Claudia at the Oceaneer's Club. She wasn't old enough to be checked in alone but enjoyed going to the open house events with mom and dad.
