After two years of no sailing, we book the B2B Alaska cruise to kick start our cruising experience again. Alaska, what beautiful scenery, this was our fourth B2B for Alaska, it is a little earlier in the season then the previous cruises, but this was perfect as there were snow covered mountain tops which provided a completely different photo opportunity and visual experience.
Embarkation and disembarkation at Vancouver was a breeze, little wait about 10 minutes to get on to the ship as we were early. The usual covid test checks etc. Got the travel covid test from costco in Toronto the day before, vaccinated and boosted so no issues.
On to the ship and friendly staff, almost like returning home. The ship and cabin was totally renovated since the last time we were on this ship. Super clean, all the staff interacting with customers were masked for their and customer protection. We remain mask free throughout the ship and almost all the cruisers except till the second last day of the B2B where we were asked to wear a mask in the theatre only.
