Thank you for the replies. I have looked at the longer cruises leaving from Long Beach, San Pedro and San Francisco. My problem it the amount of sea days VS time spent on the islands. Plus I hate Enseneda Mexico so that'a a waste of a port for me.
I did cruise Celebrity to Alaska and I won't make the mistake again.
Celebrity is not the right cruise line for me. I need a cruise line with more action.
Good information about the auto tips and wine. I prefer auto tips anyhow. I knew about the American crew issues. But sounds like those were resolved. Interesting information about the exemptions through congress. I didn't know about that.
