We’ve been sailing to Alaska with BC_DisneyGeek on the Celebrity Century cruise ship. Today we take a tour of the galley. One little warning: there are photos of frog legs ahead. If you are catching this series in the middle, you should read parts One and Two first. Enjoy! ~~Rick

Day two at sea offered great weather and breathtaking views:
