We just returned from the Alaska Inside Passage Cruise and we are still dreaming about this wonderful experience. We boarded in Vancouver, after spending the day there. Vancouver is a beautiful city and we managed to see a few of the highlight before boarding the Infinity. This was our first cruise and the first time I had ever been on a boat, small or large and I was very apprehensive, armed with seasick pills and all the nerve I could muster, we boarded to be greeted by Champagne, Mimosa, or Orange Juice and a very friendly person who took us to our Sky Suite, via the beautiful glass elevator. Our suite greeted us with a bottle of Champagne, Fresh Fruit, and a beautiful room with a large veranda, comfortable deck chairs and the privacy and peace we were looking for. The suite comes with a butler, who made himself very scarce. In fact the only negative I have about the trip was the butler who was very lazy and hard to find. The rest of the crew made you feel like it was their personal goal in life to make you happy. I cannot say enough about our waiter Mert, and his assistant Vittala. They made every dining experience pure pleasure. These young men were professional and pleasant and absolutely nothing was too much for them to do. One night I couldn't eat another mouthful when we came to dinner, and I did not order an entrEe, Mert said "you must eat something, I will get you what ever you want". My comment was to him thank you, but tell me, do you get a commission if we eat". We both laughed. The entertainment, the dancers and singers, were as professional as some New York show I have seen and very enjoyable. The variety acts were good, but I don't care much for jugglers or magicians but I realize they have to have something for everyone. We only attended one of the late night parties as we took shore excursions at every port and enjoyed them tremendously, except perhaps were a little disappointed in the Totem Pole excursion, it really wasn't too interesting. But the shopping in town was fun. We loved the art auction and purchased three painting and two auctions. It was fun with the photographer taking all the pic's around the ship, they were a little too costly but we bought all of them including the video, (which isn't very professional, but a nice remembrance) perhaps they could change the music on the Alaska video it sounds very much like the X rated music. The last night was a sad one as we hated for the cruise, our new friends, the wonderful crew and just the whole experience to end. We hope to take another Infinity cruise next year and I think once you are on the best boat it will be a hard act to follow.
