Letter: Cruise ship passengers getting Alaska

August 13, 2013 

This is to passengers of the cruise ship in Seward and all folks that see this as a negative event.

My letter is not meant as a criticism. A few years ago, we had old friends visit and drove them to Seward to board the ship. When we got there, the entire town was out of electricity. Restaurants and facilities in town did the best they could and turned it into an “experience,” pleasant and memorable.

What you are experiencing is “Alaska.” You wanted the Alaska Experience? Well, you got it. Take it home and enjoy the memories. Please come back.
