I filled out the after cruise evaluations. I have one problem with one of the tours we took. There was no where to report the issue of a really bad tour guide. We did a tour in Iceland where the tour guide was not clear about where to go and where to meet. He never pointed the paths for the sites or what the sites offered. I do not expect guides to be friendly but they should be informative and point out and describe what we should do at each site. At the first site the bus moved. He had to find a couple who did not know where to find the bus and he was not happy. My husband and I were lucky when we walked down to the correct parking lot. The sites were great waterfall - volcano lake - geyser - and spa.
I am a big fan of Celebrity and Royal Caribbean BUT I agree with cangelmd. I have been on cruises to Alaska on Celebrity and Princess. Princess cruises go to Glacier Bay and that is spectacular. Also rather than spending money on a suite I would take a land tour to Denali (with the cruiseline or on your own). I am not an animal scenery person but Denali is an absolute must see if you can possibly swing the time and money. We did the Tundra Wilderness tour in Denali getting to the bus at 4:30 in the morning - and it was worth the early early morning.
For those of you considering the low cost shoe covers to keep your shoes dry, they do keep them dry but I did not find them easy to walk in. Make sure you order early and check the sizing with the shoes that will be covered. Walk around and make sure the covers are comfortable enough for your trip. I found the 'ankle' area to be irritating when walking around with the covers.
