Puget Sound & San Juan Islands


This was my third American Cruise Lines trip, but instead of a riverboat cruise it was on Puget Sound and the San Juan Islands off Seattle.  Like the earlier riverboat cruises, it was fun, relaxing, scenic, informative, and just a great time in general.  The actual itinerary varied a bit from the ACL “Day by Day” itinerary, but mostly they matched.

The photos on each page are geotagged, so if you care you can see where each was taken, usually to within a few meters.  I haven’t edited them except to add GPS data to those few not geotagged in-camera.  The photos have been size-reduced for the web, but I’d be happy to send you full-size individual photos, or a DVD with all of the photos.  I’ve also added a map showing where each day’s photos were taken.

To see the photos for each day, use the links at the top of each page.  At each port, we had one or more shore excursions.  Each photo page includes only the (italicized) ACL description of the excursion that I did that day, plus any comments of my own; the ACL website has full information on the other possible excursions.  (Since this was my third ACL cruise, all non-”Signature” shore excursions will be free on future cruises!)

This wasn’t a river cruise, so we didn’t have a “riverlorian” as we did on the Mississippi and Ohio River trips, but there were lots of informative talks and slide shows on the area, musical entertainment, etc.
