All this has been booked by our nephew, Brian who will be accompanying us with his wife, Vicky, and their little one, George.
This will be our first cruise and I'm looking forward to it. I am NOT looking forward to the long flights to and from our starting and ending points, however! At least they will be on Alaska Airlines.
Not wanting to haul my big camera and lenses with me through TSA checkpoints, I went and purchased a Nikon Coolpix P900 which is an all in one point-and-shoot, with a lens that goes from 24mm to 2000mm (!!), nothing short of a miracle camera. I also purchased a dandy little guide on how to use it. (Photographer's Guide to The Coolpix P900 by Alexander S. White) While you can pretty much take the camera out of the box and take some really good pictures, that guide book helps you utilize some of the amazing features of this camera. It also shows you how to use features you probably never, ever even considered.
Anyway, I've been toying with the camera for about a week now and still have a whole lot to learn let alone master.
