Here is a bear behind! This one was just feet away when I first saw it. I don’t know who was more startled, him or me. Jonathan Bailey was Amsterdam’s safety, environmental and health officer when this was taken. He is now on Rotterdam.
Great shot of seals in Juneau, Alaska. Seems like a duel took place and the opponent/challenger’s head is falling front of the new king! Csaba Desvari is Oosterdam’s culinary operations manager.
HAL guest Genelle sailed on Oosterdam in May and was lucky enough to catch glimpses of killer whales and eagles during her Alaska trip. Thanks for sharing, Genelle! Beautiful to see a pod of killer whales in Juneau (including Mom and baby) and eagles in Sitka! — Genelle
