  1. Thanks for your responses. Cig smoke is an issue for me.
  2. Thanks. We have cruised aft before but this will be our first time on Carnival.
  3. Thanks. Did you have any problems with this location
  4. Are these balconies covered or are they at least partially covered.
  5. I just called and they said they added it to my cruise without changing booking or price increase. How can i check to see if it was added and if it was, does it take a day or so to show up?
  6. As far as ships go we have done both round trips out of Seattle. For us Princess is the way to go. They have naturalist and rangers. Loved the staff. They seemed genuinely happy to be on the ship and happy we were on the ship and then there are the puppies. Although I wouldn’t pick Princess just for the puppies. They also seem to have more permits to the areas that need permits. One excursion I would highly recommend is the one where you leave the ship and take a small boat that gets really close to the glaciers. It’s on Juneau day. If you are heading into Juneau in the afternoon you will le
  7. Nope, I didn't take the tour to get a deal on items. I took the tour because it sounded interesting and my family and I thought it was. It was in our budget so we did it. We set a budget, we don't buy the photo package, we don't buy the alcohol package, we spend our money one seeing and doing new things. That's our personal choice. Everyone else needs to do what works for them.
  8. We took this tour on the Star. It was really neat to see the behind the scenes, laundry room, kitchen, where the anchors are stored, the medical area and the bridge. I am glad we did it but its one of those things once and done. I don't think I would take the tour again. We had our 15 yr old granddaughter with us and she found it very interesting. As to the cost and is it worth it, that's an individual choice. We thought it was worth it to us. Each of us got a very nice robe, an apron, pad with our names on it and pictures.
  9. We have done the excursion twice and saw whales both times. We really enjoyed the excursion. You get much closer than the ship does.
  10. We sailed in a mini suite recently and I was concerned about not having any privacy. But after the first day didn’t really think about. It was actually kinda neat when we docked in Vancouver and didn’t get off. There were several of us on our deck and above feeding the seagulls. We were all just hanging out and visiting. I am typically a private shy person but that dayreally enjoyed the interaction. Also one of our sea days several people were out and we were all pointing whale sightings etc. it’s also my understanding all the mini suites were all open. We were in club class.
  11. We had an aft cabin on the Jewel. The balcony was awesome but when the sofa bed was opened up it was very hard to use the balcony. I cant find any pictures.
  12. Thank you. We are currently port side which I Understand is the better side for when we sail by the island. I guess I will stay with that.
  13. We like to people watch when we are in port. Which side does POA usually dock on?
