I wasn't sure I even wanted to go on this cruise but relented and actually enjoyed it. There is not very much info on the areas you go into unless youcheck out the places online and request information in advance. In Juneau, we took a bus tour that was really informative and some shopping.In Skagway, we took a bus to Whitehorse, Canada and took the train back which I really liked. We were fortunate to have really nice weather too. The open seas were reasonably rough up but not so bad returning.My wife wants to return but I feel like "been there done that". Next trip.
I've been to Seattle many times but this was the first time i can ever remember the sun without any rain. We heard that they hard a record temp of 105 the day before we sailed back into port, really sorry we missed that,lol.Enjoyed Seattles' Seafair 60th Celebration with the Blue Angels, the Space Needle panaramic view and the tours including the "Ducks" before leaving. We would have liked to do more but difficult in only 3 days. A word of advice ...do not take the Cruise buses to the pier from the airport.We paid $60 for the bus and $40 for a cab back to the airport. So check it out before hand and save.
Just returned from three very nice days in Seattle , following a seven day cruise on RCL
"Rhapsody Of The Seas" to Juneau and Skagway, Alaska; Tracy Arm Fjord, Alaska;
Victoria, B.C.; then back to Seattle with beautiful weather the entire cruise with plenty of whales.
I was somewhat reluctant for this trip but found it very enjoyable. Highly recommend!.
Thank you everyone for a warm welcome aboard.
