Default An Alaskan Experience:

Just came back from a Celebrity Cruise.

1. Wondeful once in a lifetime experience. (would not go back again)

2. Take WARM clothing at least this time of the year...50 degrees in Skagway and 65 degrees in Ketchikan.

3. Ship sells weather breaker are THREE times the price in the stores.

4. The Hubbard Glacier, the Icy Strait Marine Mammal Cruise is excellent.

My first Alaska cruise was on Celebrity Infinity and I would go back again. In fact this Aug. going on Princess.

You mentioned that your cruise was a once in a lifetime trip and wonderful, but you wouldn't go back again? I don't quite understand that sentence??

I meant a trip to Alaska for me would be a once in a lfetime experience. It was wonderful but I would opt for Caribbean or the Galapags etc...

we went 5 years ago on celebrity. going again next may on hal. looking forward to the return trip almost as much as the first. the first trip is so overwhelming.

it is completely different from the caribbean. the caribbean for us is basically getting of the ship finding a beach and parking it until sail away!!

taking 9-11 friends with us in may. can't wait to see their initial reactions.
