First Cruise Ship Since 2019
Some of us would sell our first born to escape on a cruise ship to sail the seven seas! We need a well deserved break, from a rough 2020…lol, just joking about the first born. I swear since 2020 my humor has gotten extremely dark! I did get excited when hearing about Haines and Skagway sailing since 2019. The Upper Lynn Canal communities in Alaska welcomed their first cruise ship since 2019. Although the vessel holds 175 folks, only 80 passengers were aboard this relatively small American constellation as they spent Friday in Skagway, then Saturday touring Haines. I wanna go, don’t you?
During the pandemic, many cruise lines shutdown and were not allowing any passengers aboard to avoid the risk of catching the virus. It was also difficult for people to travel to places like Alaska due to the outbreak that happened last year, but seeing cruise ships on the water is a sign that things are getting back to normal. There was much hype from the community as they finally got to meet new meet new tourists again. You can tell, we all miss the other normal life we had.
This weekend’s ship is one of 12 American Constellation cruises to dock in Haines this summer. The big ships from mega-lines like Norwegian and Royal Caribbean are expected to visit Skagway later this summer.
