I have booked Mercury Aug 16 trip to Alaska but yesterday I found its itinerary is different from other dates of its sailing to Alaska. That is on this date, Mercury does not go through inside passage but outside of Vancouver in both directions. I am thinking of changing to Infinity. Not only Infinity goes through inside passage on its way up, I also do not need to take a transfer from Seattle to Vancouver. However, the problem is Infinity only makes two stops, no Sitka as Mercury does. Can anyone help me decide whether I should switch to Infinity or stick to Mercury?
In addition, does anyone know why Mercury makes this itinerary? What is the purpose?
Thank you for your help.
