Wondered whether any of you Cruise Hounds have been to Alaska on this particular ship. We'd appreciate your comments. We're considering the departure from Seattle going up as far as Seward. Hoping to do this early July, 2004.
We'll probably be 4 to 8 couples (Central Floridians - All transplants from Northern cities ) who want a mid-priced, 7 day experience - Some couples with children (ages 10-16) - We all like good food.
Haven't sailed on the ship but have seen her the last two Saturdays in Vancouver. Last saturday it was quite noticable that the captain had the painters aboard working last week. Looked a lot better on the outside that's for sure.
We did the Vancouver round trip to AK a few weeks ago on the Mercury and she was simply fabulous. Our second sailing on this lovely ship that has been well maintained was enhanced by being Captains Club members. So, you should sign up, if you have not already-it is free now. Also, if you but Royal Caribbean Stock (RCL), you get an on board discount.
