Cruising the Pacific


The first 9 days on our cruise from Vancouver to Japan were at sea. The first port of call was Petropavlosk, Russia so this was our first trans-Pacific cruise. We had quite a party as we crossed the dateline! It was strange, going from Wednesday 10:00PM to Thursday 10:01PM at one time. We skipped Thursday entirely. Oh well, we’ll have to make that up on the way back.

In general, the water was smooth. Except one day, when we were in the fringes of a typhoon, which whipped the waves up to 30 feet high. Some people were sea sick, but we had no problems. Didn’t miss a meal.

One thing we like about trans ocean cruises is the activities. We had interesting lectures during the day, lots of music throughout the ship, shopping, and great entertainment at night. Certainly no time to get bored.
