My wife Betty and I just returned from our seven day, Vancouver to Seward, cruise on the Mercury. If you are uncertain about taking an Alaska cruise, don't be. It is fantastic. Beautiful scenery, wonderful shore experiences and you will see things that you would never see in the Caribbean. We had a wonderful time. I will be posting my review in a couple of days, once I get out my Thesarus to find all the adjectives I need to describe it.

It's so great to "hear" the excitment from you and Andrew. We went on the Sea Princess the first week of Aug. '99 and knew then we wanted to go again. We will sail on the Sea Princess this July 14 for our 2nd and I'll bet not last cruise to Alaska. We want to do some different shore activities this time (though we loved the ones in '99) and look forward to hearing more from both of you.
Hi Mike, for someone like myself who has not done a lot of traveling, never been on a cruise BEFORE, your review was chock full of insights and information. I want to personally thank you for taking the time to write such a detailed summary. Today, I booked a 7 day cruise on the Celebrity Mercury from 8/17-8/24. After reading your review, I am even more excited about going.
