If you are sailing out of Seattle, you should be going North to Alaska. The Sumitt is a great ship. In Ketchikan, try and take the Misty Fjord our. Out of Juneau do a flight tour to a Glacier. Dog sled tour kind of over priced, but it has to be to take care of the dogs.

I think you will finnd the food on Celebrity to be quite good and as for treating your mom well -Rest assured that the staff go out of their way to accommodate all passengers, but particularly those that need some additional assistance orattention. I travel frequently with an older friend who must use a wheelchair or walker and tease her that we are never going on a cruise without her wheelchair. As her companion, even I benefit from the special pampering and attention. Hope that helps arrest your fears.

I couldn't agree with Nancy more. Your Mom will be treated like royalty. Be sure to let your room steward know what special things he can do to help.

My wife's mother had Alzheimers and we would take her cruising long after most people would have. When we boarded, I would look up Elizabeth's room steward, immediately tip him $100 and then explain the situation. He would always spread the word on the ship to the other room stewards who were always looking out for Elizabeth. Ditto for the Maitre d' and waiter at dinner time.

Elizabeth had a rotweiller at home, so she would always ask the waiter for a doggie bag at the end of dinner. The waiter would always go to extreme lengths to make sure Elizabeth never felt awkward or embarrassed at any time. If I couldn't separate the doofie bag and Elizabeth after dinner, the room steward would. All in all, it was some of the best times our family had with her as she progressed and I wouldn't change a moment of it. You and your Mom will have lifetime memories from this cruise. I guarantee it.
