For those of you that have travelled with us before, you are going to see some BIG changes on board our ship "Great Bear II" as soon as you set foot inside!
As any of you that have done renovations likely understand, it all started with replacing our old oven and cook-top in the galley... that's how it began.
By the time our Great Bear II
left home on April 28, we now have a beautiful new stove with 2 ovens, a new dishwasher with drawers, and a beautiful quartz countertop in the galley. (The fridge is staying put.)
Because the galley and the salon are all one large room, it couldn't of course, end there. There is new vinyl plank flooring throughout the galley/salon, a sensible replacement of the carpet. The final touches include a new couch, a recovered matching settee, and beautiful new area rug.
We didn't want you to have to then see the same old carpet downstairs in the staterooms and hallways, so you will find new carpet there.
For those of you that think this could all be a tad extravagant, we want you to know that nothing was wasted... everything was recycled, even the decades old oven and cooktop!
We look forward to welcoming everyone aboard,
amidst some of the most soul-stirring wilderness on earth!
