Last cruise ship of the season came in Anchorage

Published on : Tuesday, September 19, 2017

AnchorageAnchorage, one of the most popular towns in the US state of Alaska sees the coming of the last ship. It was the last cruise ship to dock in Anchorage for the season leaves town Monday night. This is the last cruise in the current cruise season.

 

 

But Monday morning, while the ship was at the port of Anchorage, the students from several high schools toured the liner to see if being a part of the cruise industry would be a career they would be interested in pursuing.

 

 

 

Most students walked from room-to-room, taking photos on their iPhones or Snapchatting their experiences. Most seemed impressed by a surprise visit from a chef trained by America’s Test Kitchen.

 

 

 

East High senior Canyon Sparks said that his favorite part of the cruise tour was the elegance of the ship, especially the astrolabe.

 

 

 

Canyon Sparks said while he was not sure what kind of job he wants in the future, he could picture himself working on a cruise ship.

 

 

 

Former lawmaker and now vice president of external relations for Holland America Group, Ralph Samuels, led one of the cruise tours.

 

 

 

Ralph Samuels pushed the financial impacts the cruise industry has on the state, and he introduced students to people in the tourism industry.

 

 

 

This year, there are about 33 ships visited the state on 498 voyages. And as a result, this is where more than half of Alaska’s visitors spend $1 billion on taxable spending, from May 1 through September 30, which is about $6.5 million every day, for 150 days.

 

 

 

Tonight, the Amsterdam and its passengers will depart Anchorage and head to Homer, next.
