On July 27 we sailed from sunny Seattle on the Grand Princess
Ketchikan, Juneau, Skagway and Victoria, with more than 200 singles
ready to enjoy the wildlife and breathtaking scenery of America's last
In Ketchikan, we strolled historic Creek Street, lined with
turn-of-the-century homes, on stilts, that have been converted into
quaint shops, galleries and restaurants. We went whale-watching in
Juneau and were amazed as these marine mammals jumped out of the water
while "bubble net feeding," a technique in which whales blow a ring of
bubbles to corral fish to eat. Later we explored Mendenhall Glacier, one
of the world's best-known ice masses. Others enjoyed salmon fishing and
flying in floatplanes.
From Skagway, we rode up the
Yukon White Pass to the Canadian border and
panned for gold using the same techniques as the miners in the Klondike
gold rush of the late 1890s. To see photos from our adventures ashore,
We enjoyed our time on board with a Gold Rush Party and '70s Disco
Party. Kayvaan Kaboli
from Santa Barbara, CA, won Singles Bingo,
and Diane Fields
from Houston, TX, celebrated her 10th cruise,
receiving the coveted red singles polo shirt. Pearl Mendes
Ben Lomond, CA, performed a traditional Hawaiian hula dance in the
passenger talent show and also was a final contestant in the ship's
Princess Idol karaoke contest. To see photos of our onboard fun,

Port Profile - Puerto Rico
In 1483, Columbus landed on what is now called Puerto Rico, claiming the
island for Spain. When the Spanish-American War of 1898 ended Spanish
colonial rule in the Americas, Puerto Rico was ceded to the United
States. Today, it is a U.S. commonwealth. Cruise ships call at the
capital, San Juan, where many visitors like to explore the historic
district known as Old San Juan, a picturesque neighborhood of
cobblestone streets and colorful colonial buildings.
Puerto Rico is well-known for its rum -- more than 70% of the rum sold
in the U.S. comes from the isle. It is the home of Bacardi, the world's
largest rum distillery. Puerto Rico also boasts beautiful beaches, with
a coastline stretching more than 270 miles. They range from the
white-sand dunes of Isabela to a black-sand beach near Punta
You can visit San Juan on any of the following sailings:
Celebrity Summit, October 25, 2014 -
Carnival Conquest, June 13, 2015 -
Independence of the Seas, October 25, 2015 -
Did You Know?
The smallest public sculpture in Sweden can be found in a Stockholm
square. "Boy Looking at the Moon," by artist Liss Eriksson, measures
just 15 centimeters (almost 6 inches) tall. The sandstone and
wrought-iron piece depicts a seated boy hugging his knees and gazing up
at the sky. Tourists often leave coins at the statue, and some
Stockholmers even knit tiny hats and scarves for it in winter.
The diminutive sculpture resides in Bollhustappan square behind the
Finnish Church in Stockholm's old town, known as Gamla Stan. Seek it out
for yourself on our Baltic Sea singles cruise next year, which calls at
the Swedish capital. The Serenade of the Seas cruise departs Copenhagen
on May 16.
