The Shore Excursion Staff from the Noordam enjoyed an afternoon at the Alaskan Lodge Adventure and Seafeast. What beautiful weather we have been having in Ketchikan!

Earlier this week, we had the Shore Excursion Staff from Celebrity Cruise Line and Royal Caribbean Cruise Line out to enjoy Silverking Lodge and George Inlet Lodge.  We had a chance to walk on the boardwalk to the largest red cedar in the Tongass National Forest at the Alaskan Lodge Adventure tour.  On Monday, we had our serious crab shell stacking competition out at George Inlet Lodge.  They had some great ideas for stacking their shell!

This was our last FAM trip for 2016.  We love having the staff members from the different cruise lines come out and experience the tours!  Now it’s time to get ready for all of our guests to start coming on tours this Sunday.  We hope to see you soon!

Wednesday night we hosted the Shore Excursion and Land Staff from Princess, Carnival, and Holland Cruise Lines at George Inlet Lodge.  They enjoyed a mini version of our seafood boil and tons of Dungeness Crab!  To finish the night off, they enjoyed a slice of cheesecake smothered in Alaskan blueberries.  Doesn’t that sound delicious?


This past weekend, we had the Norwegian and Silver Seas Shore Excursion Staff members out at the lodges!  We had fun eating and telling native stories at the Alaskan Lodge Adventure & Seafeast and a very competitive crab shell stacking competition at George Inlet Lodge!  This is just a small part of what you would experience on your tour.  Can’t wait for the season to start!
