I have to say this was one of my best cruises yet, if not the best. The scenery was breathtaking and non-stop and the ship and crew wonderful.

Booking and planning: Friends chose this cruise for a reason and I didn’t think I would get to go. But I was looking at prices last fall on RCCL’s website and noticed a grand suite guarantee (which I’d never seen before) and thought I’d book it because I could always cancel later. A few weeks later I opened up my reservation and noticed I’d been upgraded to an Owner’s Suite. So that decided it right there – I was going on this cruise. I then transferred the reservation to my wonderful travel agent. And set about researching the ports on this cruise. This was like a homecoming for me as I grew up in Alaska and after I upgraded my mother decided to join me for the return. Best friend decided to join us as well, but actually stayed in an inside stateroom with a friend from CC.
