The Norwegian Pearl

We sailed from Seattle on the Norwegian Pearl. Since I have never been on a cruise before, I have nothing to compare it to, but we were very impressed with our ship. I think there were over 2000 passengers and over 1000 crew.
Here's our first view of the ship from the pier in Seattle (we don't know who those people are):

The first thing we did once on board was eat lunch! They had a nice buffet we seemed to frequent since it was easier to find something to please everyone there. Nice of them to have high chairs for Noelle; even nicer that they were on wheels. Cousins Brandon & Connor entertain Noelle.

We had an awesome room on deck 11 (out of 14) with a balcony. Many beautiful pictures were taken from this balcony. If you ever go on an Alaskan cruise, I highly recommend getting a room with a balcony. This is Connor & Noelle playing on our balcony as we are sailing away from Seattle.

Here's Aunt Lisa in our view looking forward out our balcony as we sail away.

Goodbye, Seattle. You were a little rainy, but pretty cool.

Oh yes, in case you haven't noticed, I'm spreading this out. I felt overwhelmed with all the photos, so I decided to just take it one day at a time. There's sooo much more I have to share!!
