Our last night
In our tower was a bar called the Whale Tail. We went in to get cool and to have our final drinks in Alaska.
The bar was empty and we sat at the bar itself and watched the room while we drank. By the time we left the bar was full and extra bar staff had joined the fray.
Our plan had been to go to the Anchorage Outback to spend the vouchers that have been sent to us after our experiences in Fort Lauderdale. After our large lunches we decided that a taxi ride out past 15th was not worth the effort. Instead we went back to our room to finish packing and to re-balance our suitcases to make sure they were both below the 23 kg limit. I went online and checked in for our flights the next day.
Neither the Princess Cruise reception nor the hotel’s concierge desk had any suitcase scales so we just had to hope that our suitcase weight would be okay.
Our room overlooked Fourth Avenue and for the first few hours of our last night we had lots of street noise. Our room had a few issues including no black tea, no paper tissues, no toilet rolls etc but by now all we wanted was to catch a plane the next day and head for home.
No reminder need that we would not have a dark night. Here’s the view at 10.37 pm from our hotel window.
