On to Alaska - the Ship
We went to Alaska on Ovation of the Seas. It was our first trip on a Quantum class ship. It was nice, but we still like the Oasis class ships better.
Here we are setting sail from Seattle (it was very sunny).
Ovation of the Seas has an iFly tunnel on board. David and I had never tried iFly, so we took advantage of it on the ship. We wore some great outfits for the experience.
I was really nervous about flying, but it went okay. I couldn’t quite figure out everything the instructor was trying to tell me, but I didn’t die, so success!
David did a great job during his flight.
We also took an all access ship tour. It was really interesting. We got to go on the bridge.
And to the engine control room.
The most interesting part of the tour was learning about how the kitchens work and how the crew loads supplies on each week while they are in port. We learned that they order supplies based on the passenger demographics. For example, for a week with more kids, they might order more chocolate milk, pizza, and French fries. As someone who is always interested in logistics, this was fascinating. Here’s a picture inside just one of the refrigerators, this one for dairy.
Next I’ll post about some of our stops along the way.
