Default Celebrity Alaska Shore Excursions??

Does Celebrity offer good shore excursions in Alaska? We are about to book the Celebrity Mercury sailing from Seattle on August 20th and I was just curious about the shore excursions that Celebrity offers in Alaska.

This ship will be going to the following ports:
juneau, alaska -
skagway, alaska
ketchikan, alaska -
prince rupert, b.c.

Thanks!
Beth

More important what excursions are you interested in??? My clear preference is independent as I never book any ship excursions. I would not base my ship choice on shore excursions??? A big negative though with Celebrity is no ship naturalist or Glacier Bay.

We spent close to $1300 on shore excursions thru Celebrity. We cruised on the Summit in July. The only one we would highly recommend is the Pilots Choice Glacier Excursion in Juneau. Flew in a small helicoptor over the Juneau Ice fields, landed on a glacier, flew around some more and landed again. Great experience. ($600)

As for the other excursions we took - way over priced and not worth it.
Something Crab Feed and boat ride - Ketchikan TERRIABLE
Wilderness glacier expedition and canoe ride - Skagway - JUST ok. Got to see a pod of Orcas while on the katamaran ride back.

Don't forget to get the best smoked salmon you will ever have in Juneau!!!!!!!!!!!!

Say hello to the martini bar bartender for us.
