Alaska Cruise

Finally boarding Regent CruisesSeven Seas Navigator for a 7-night Inside Passage cruise to Anchorage, Alaska! Farewell, Vancouver.

Sailing away from Vancouver

The OPUS Hotel offers complimentary car service within town using their BMW Series 7, so I arrived at the cruise terminal in style. US officials are there in Vancouver to check documents as if we were entering the United States by boarding the ship (makes sense since we’ll be disembarking in Alaska). Regent Cruises completes check-in process on board the ship after handing you a welcome glass of champagne (very civilized). 

Here's our Alaska Cruise along the Inside Passage itinerary:

Staterooms weren’t ready until 3pm, but lunch was served at the Pool Grill and La Veranda (Hurray! They have Smoked Salmon Candy, along with heaps of Alaskan seafood and of course crab).

My Suite
 I’ve seen this ship before but she’s still looking good - such a nice size with very warm décor. The International crew is attentive and friendly, very willing to chat about their home and family. The Regent suites make me so happy- fresh flowers, fruit basket and bottle of champagne on ice. They are laid out like a deluxe hotel room so you intuitively know how to unpack. My suite is spacious and well-designed with walk-in closet, marble bath and Interactive TV with over 150 movies.

Love the marble bathrooms!
