Cruise details CHANGED, from Lynn M.
"The May 1 date did not work for our group so I have moved to a better date of June 7. This has been set up and we will be able to begin booking.  I will finalize the details re machines, customs, training rooms, etc. over the next few days and have the rates ready to go out and registrations, etc. This is a beautiful ship - the Celebrity Infinity." The cruise will be leaving and returning to Vancouver and travelling to Alaska.
