North Pacific 2012

Cruise Dates: 
Saturday, September 22, 2012 to Monday, October 8, 2012

Diamond Princess from Anchorage (Whittier) to Beijing (Tianjin)

Apparently, the North Pacific can be rough this time of year. It was raining sideways in Whittier causing us to leave 12 hours late. Then we dodged storms in the Gulf of Alaska and the Bering Sea by hiding behind Alaskan and Aleutian Islands. Finally, we skipped a port in Japan due to a typhoon moving up from Tokyo. Once in the Sea of Japan, everything was flat calm (and very warm by the time we reached Shanghai). Vladivostok was a surprising gem (at least on the sunny day we were there).
