Help me choose between these two itineraries please!
I'm stuck between these two ships/itineraries:
7 night Alaska Sawyer Glacier on RCI Rhapsody of the Seas
Vancouver, Inside passage, Juneau, Skagway, Cruise Tracy Arm Fjord, Ketchikan, Seattle
7 Night Alaska and Glacier Bay on Norweigan Pearl
Vancouver, Inside passage, Juneau, Skagway, Cruise Glacier Bay, Ketchikan, Victoria, Seattle
I have been on 5 cruises. My first was when I was 14 on Royal Caribbean and LOVED it! I've been trying to get back on Royal Caribbean for a long time, but itineraries and finances have forced us on NCL and Carnival. I have really enjoyed my two cruises on NCL. Carnival - well, you get what you pay for, so I can't complain - but truthfully, I'm done with Carnival.
While the ship and the food is very important to us; the itinerary will win out every time. I really want to see a Glacier and while the RCI itinerary is CALLED SAWYER GLACIER, how can I be sure that we will cruise all the way through Tracy Arm until we get to the glacier if the itinerary doesn't specifically state Sawyer Glacier. The NCL is slightly cheaper.
I really want to go on the RCI cruise, but from what I have read Glacier Bay is a sure win.
So, what do I do? Do you think that the RCI cruise will get to Sawyer Glacier?
