Sometime this evening, we will be boarding the Celebrity Infinity for our cruise to Alaska!
Our cruise will take us to Ketchikan, Hubbard Glacier, Juneau, through the Inside Passage, and to Victoria BC. In Ketchikan we will be going on a 3 1/2 hour rainforest canopy adventure, with 8 ziplines!
The Hubbard Glacier day should be fun. How close we get to the glacier really depends on conditions. Also on this day, we have reservations for the SS United States Restaurant. The SS United States is one of Celebrity’s “specialty restaurants” that advertise a higher level of service and a special menu (samples on the above link). Our experience with the specialty restaurant on the Disney Wonder was positive, so we are looking forward to this one as well.
In Juneau, we are going to visit a training camp for sled dogs, where we get to ride on a dog sled! and meet the puppies (awww…. puppies).
For the day in Victoria, we are planning on just enjoying the ship while a good portion of the passengers are ashore. We have been to Victoria twice already, and will likely get there again in the future since it is so close to Seattle.
Here are some sites with information about the ship
So that is it for now. I’ll post updates if I get internet access along the trip.
