Default Alaskan cruise

Just got back from a 7 day Alaskan cruise. Me my wife sister in law and brother in law left Seattle on the Norwegian Bliss . The first day was at sea.. Listen to good bands and dranked a few. First stop was Juneau Alaska. There we went out on a small boat and got to see hump back whales and Orcas in their natural habitat. Went to a saloon in Juneau and they had a drink called Duck Fart. It made up of Kahlua, Baileys Irish Cream and Crown Royal. We had several then had to buy a tee shirt that said we had duck farts. Next stop Skaway. There we took a 1.5 hour train ride through the wilderness. A saloon there had Reindeer Farts made up of Baileys, Kahlua and peppermint schnapps. Had several of those. Next day was spent at Glacier Bay. Then we went to Ketchikan were me and my brother in law took a float plane ride while the wife's went shopping. Last stop was Victoria British Colombia for shopping at sight seeing. Even though the temperature was cool the scenery and wildlife was great. I would recommend taking a Alaskan cruise.

I remember drinking Duck Farts up in Spokane one time, Popular drink up in the northwest, I suppose. Glad to hear you had a great trip.

Back when I used to frequent the bars, most of the bartenders around here knew how to make them. The ones that didn't were always waiting for the punchline when asked if they knew how to make a duck fart.

The more widely-known B-52 shot is about the same thing, using Grand Marnier instead of Crown Royal.

That is on our bucket list, but probably closer to two weeks including several days in the Yukon

We took the same trip on the Norwegian Pearl last July. My wife and I were not able to take the float plane as ours crashed 2 days before and was not repaired yet.
