Day 8 College Fjord

Sadly this was our last day on the Island Princess.  We just had fun kicking back and then packing up. I had my massage on this afternoon and can I just say it was fantastic! Worth every cent. I choose this instead of salmon fishing...I agree with what you are thinking. We had an incredible dessert buffet in the afternoon. Seriously it was all desserts. They were creamy and luscious and here's where I probably gained all my weight for the trip.

 It took about half an hour to go through the whole line while people were deciding what to get. I say what the heck have everything you want.

I'm not proud of it but I ate most of the plate even if it did take me all afternoon.
 Later than afternoon we attend the Chef's demo and galley tour. Really fun. The galley was enormous and really fun to see. I love behind the scenes stuff:
The birds are carrots!

The dinner spread to come

Early evening we cruised through College Fjord. It was named that because it has 15+ large glaciers that all are named after colleges back east. It was just fantastic.

It was really hard to narrow the pictures down as usual. After the scenic cruising it was time to get ready for dinner. We spent our dinner seating time watching the glaciers so we hit the dinner buffet instead for the first time actually. Like we were really hungry, ha!

It was a beautiful day. We wished we could take everyone with us to see the gorgeous views we saw in Alaska. We spent the rest of the evening going to our last show...a comedy magician named Lorenzo Clark and packing up. Our suitcases needed to be outside our door by 10pm. It was interesting figuring out which suitcases got which tags since some were coming with us on the train and the big ones were going to meet us in Anchorage. We screwed that up but luckily they figured it out for us somehow!!

Wow, I have really enjoyed seeing each day (and wishing we were with you!) It looks absolutely beautiful. And that dessert buffet!!! My kind of buffet.
