As many others, we took our 1st cruise to Alaska on July 21, 11 days. Sitka was, indeed, scratched from the agenda and all sorts of rumors as to why..the main one being "THE ENGINE STORY"..it leads one to wonder why they wouldn't repair it..BUT
overall it was good cruise..decent food, decent service, clean and the best part was our 2 room stewards..absolutely the best..just great guys.
we were at least on time in seattle upon our return and took a tour of seattle after we docked..then found out our plane was 3 hrs late leaving for dallas..we could have toured a "lot" more..
overall,we liked the trip..our neighbors had gone about 3 wks before on holland and we were surprised to hear they sailed to anchorage and flew back to Texas from there..it was a new trip from anchorage to seattle..BUT WHATEVER YOU TAKE, GO TO ALASKA---WOW!!
