We just enjoyed a family cruise to Alaska on The Celebrity Century Cruise ship. This was a wonderful family experience with my brothers, wives and Dad.
We noticed a number of other families doing the same thing. The cruise ship “contains” the family so you really get a chance to interact with each other, in an extended time period. Share time together, means shared memories. It is important to be face to face, and not just communicating by phone or internet.
We do get together for birthdays and anniversary’s and special events, but relaxing together like that for a week hasn’t happened for us I think for over 40 years!
Having family dinners together each night for a week is pretty cool. Being pampered where all you needs are met is pretty cool. Not having to shop for groceries, plan meals & clean up is pretty cool. Having new venues to visit and share is pretty cool.
This is a photo of Dad and gang at the Mendenhall Glacier in Juneau Alaska. Brian’s showing some recent video. Lil and Joanne are looking on. Dad’s trying out a scooter, which worked out really well for him. Here, we also saw a black bear chowing down on salmon, bald eagles and a mom & junior porcupine.
I’d recommend the experience to all!
