Just wanted to thank those of you who gave me valuable info about Alaskan Cruises. Contrary to the people who felt requests for info like this is not appropriate for this board, I feel it is a great way to disseminate good (or bad) info about a company. If this were a computer company's board, I would love to know if their computers had a major glitch. In any case, I will be taking a cruise on RCL and will let the RCL board know about my trip. Several of you gave me valuable info to help me decide. My choice is not a negative for CCL but a positive for RCL. Thanks again.
RCL ships and Celebrity ships are very comparable in most areas. I would have to give RCL the edge in general organization and on board and off ship activities. Celebrity's food is head and shoulders above the competition and all of their ships have multimillion dollar art collections throughout the public areas. RCL is the Ford Explorer and Celebrity is the BMW of this company. Both great, just a bit different. Check the price, staff to passenger ratio, size of ship/total passengers, cabin size and then decide what features are important to you! You can't make a mistake here. Enjoy! Kel
