In 10 Photos: Cruise Ship Spotting in Juneau, Alaska
May 15, 2013 was an average spring day in Juneau, Alaska. Heavy clouds shrouded Mount Juneau and Mount Roberts. As the 32,000 or so inhanbitants of Alaska's capital city awoke, the first cruise ships of the day came sailing down in Gastineau Channel. By midday as the sun peeked through the clouds, no less than five cruise ships would have offloaded their passengers in Juneau. Let me take you along on a photographic impression of Juneau's "ShipParade" on that great day in May.

Holland America's Zaandam in Juneau, Alaska
Going down on the Mount Roberts Tramway was interesting as there were long, long lines and Oosterdam's departure time was rapidly approaching. Still, we made it back on board in time and I was out on deck as the lines were cast and we left fleetmate Zaandam at the Alaska Steam Ship Dock.
