I checked into all Alaskan cruisetours (13 nights) that are 7 days at sea and 6 on land. The comparison was always $700.00 to $1,000.00 more on RCI than on Celebrity. I am choosing comparable staterooms and almost identical itineraries. We always book Concierge Class staterooms.
Cruisetour on Celebrity came in at $6300.00 which included air from Ontario, CA. RCI was about $7500.00 for a D-1 Stateroom. These cruises are for early June 2007.
