An early morning in the Arctic is an easy thing. The sun is almost always up, so one need only to open the blinds and get out on deck. This morning was particularly splendid. Dawn arrived late, rising over the walls of the fjord at Blanley Bay just as guests were disembarking for shore hikes and kayaks were being launched to explore the icebergs. The afternoon’s activities consisted of multiple polar bear encounters punctuated by bratwurst barbeque and beer on the back deck. We even had a bear stop by for an after-dinner viewing.
