Cruising Away

Cruising Away

So this ship, the Norwegian Sun, is not going to be doing the Vancouver-Alaska run any more. It's pulling out and going to Europe. Kind of an appropriate photo now, I guess.

The cruise line says it's because of a new $50 per person head tax that Alaska has enacted.

I blame Palin. Thanks a lot, snowbilly.

Total cost to BC economy: thirty eight million dollars.

Tourism is nice, but I've always looked at cruises as the lazy-boy of travel.
