What a day!!!!!! Yes, I finally had a day in the sun….. It was fabulous, I could feel the warmth all the way through my body. It’s time to head to the South Pacific…. We arrived into Victoria around 6:00 this afternoon and immediately headed to town. What a lovely place…. I wanted to go to the gardens but I was told they were closed for the season. The Empress Hotel and the Legislative Buildings were spectacular… what a grand city. It was a nice visit and a great way to close out an excellent cruise. I had no complaints…. The entire staff did an amazing job. I was really impressed with the Shore Excursion staff. They were exceptionally knowledgeable, helpful and very professional. Great job! Tomorrow I look forward to the start of the Grand Australia, New Zealand & South Pacific Voyage….sounds warmer….. Thanks HAL for a great trip to Alaska!
