mwhuntley's Tips

Skagway, Alaska - A fun, frontier town. I got some lovely inexpensive momento-type gifts here; especially liked the Russian-American Company. Fascinating history of the role it played in the Yukon Gold Rush -- have ordered several books on Skagway, its shady ladies, and the Gold Rush to learn even more (what a good cruise should accomplish -- to make its passengers curious to learn more and eager to return if possible!)
Victoria, British Columbia - It was at night, the last night of the cruise, so we never left the ship, and couldn't tell much from the ship. .
Cruise Inside Passage, Alaska - Fabulous scenery.
Cruise Tracy Arm Fjord, Alaska - Out-of-this-world scenery. For people who like to travel on the water, this was a huge treat!
Seattle, Washington - Good, if not great. We had a deluxe downtown hotel that we found sterile and kind of stingy (no breakfast, no shuttles to pier) considering the cost, but great location and beautiful view of waterfront and cityscape from the 10th floor room. Pike Place Market is not to be missed! Wished we could have ridden the shoreline ferris wheel!
Juneau, Alaska - Juneau itself was pretty boring compared to Ketchikan and Skagway; we went whale watching, but actually ended up seeing more whales from the ship than on this tour. We did see five or six sea lions however.
Celebrity Solstice Celebrity Solstice - Don't opt for select dining on this particular ship; you end up having to make reservations in advance the night before (there goes spontaneity) and there were always long lines, whether you had a reservation or not! We waited 10-20 minutes in line most nights.
