A “Welcome to Utah” sign had long since passed, and our rented black Ford Explorer was filled with a mid-vacation silence, stemming from hours of strenuous exploring.

  • On May 5, 2007, The Norwegian Pearl left the dock in Seattle, Washington for a seven day journey to Alaska.

  •   In the summer of 2011 my family and I took our traditional trip to Orlando, Florida. Every year we go there to “escape reality” for a few days. I was super excited! When we got there we were hungry so we stopped at Taco Bell to grab a bite to eat. I noticed as we walked in an older Caucasian...
