Lightsluvr.... I think you have a good point with the bad press that Celebrity has had with the pod problems they have encountered several times now... and seems like they consistently occur on the Alaska cruises. When checking the websites myself... I found several cruisetours on Celebrity to be priced much higher then RCI cruises... and a few vice versa. Wondering if maybe there was an error on the website... which I have seen several times in past. Although they were usually to the benefit of the cruise line and not the pax.
