Cruise Diary: Ketchikan 2 – A Floatplane Ride & all This too, in a Day

Adventure traveler and Dutch TV personality Charlotte Van Hoorn was on board Zaandam for an Alaska cruise and will be sharing her adventure with us.

Shop ’til you drop at the sidewalk sale on the Lido pool deck. I always use the coupon book in the stateroom for lattes and HAL logo clothes deals myself.

However, had to go ashore again after lunch aboard because every girl knows a lumberjack is the best souvenir of Alaska…


If that doesn’t work, console yourself with the late night Chocolate Buffet. Executive Chef Peter Kofler deserves so much credit for the consistently high quality food and gearing the presentation to the On Location Concept of local culinary touches. Of course Alaska’s sea of plenty gave him plenty of choices, but I’m just sayin’…The handcrafted Alaskan beers as complement to the meals was inspired.

    RE: “because **every girl** knows a lumberjack is the best souvenir of Alaska… I’d add every **BOY** that is on the (Gay) Oosterdam RSVP cruise coming to the lumberjack show in Ketchikan on July 26th! I understand that the mayor will be renaming the town Ketchaman for 6 hours.

    I agree Chef Peter Kofler and his staff did an outstanding job in creating culinary masterpeices with a local Alaska flair.
    Regards and Cheers!
