There was some calving of the glacier which was fantastic to see. We were about 3 miles from the face of the glacier when the captain finally turned the ship around. We were surrounded by icebergs of all shapes and sizes and colours (mainly white, brown, black and blue)
The sunny skies only happen once or twice a season so we were very lucky.
After the 4 hours of glacier viewing, we were sunburnt(!) and tired of standing. We had lunch and snoozed for the afternoon.
We ate dinner in the main dining room - everyone selected the traditional turkey dinner - sage stuffing, giblet gravy with cranberry relish and candied sweet potatoes. Dessert was chocolate marquise with toasted pistachio sauce.
Afterwards, we attended the Best of Broadway show by the Celebrity Dancers. There were songs from Lion King, Cabaret and Producers, among others.
