  1. Just off of the Amsterdam in Alaska after the World Cruise and there was NO Yum Yum Man. We really missed the chimes to announce the opening of the MDR and the treats at the end of the dinner... Come on HAL... Don't stop this...
  2. Yes, the taxi was $47 and that included drop off of sister at airport and taking us to airport Marriott. We did tip both driver however... Leaving now for airport...
  3. My sister used the Port Valet and it went very well. Her luggage was waiting for her in Dallas. On another note, I had planned to use Mobile Pass to speed up disembarkation. They wanted money to upgrade to Pro which I signed up for. Turned out that it is only for three Florida cruise ports. Got my money back easily. When we reclaimed our luggage, we simply showed our passports to the agent and walked right through. Could not have been easier. Our only disaster was the cab "overheated" and we had to get a new cab about half way to Seatac. Let me say that a Prius is not the best car for three folks with two weeks worth of luggage... If we had not used Port Valet for my sister, we would never have fit in the car. Thanks to Rich for a great thread.
  4. I just asked the concierge in the Neptune about the totes. She was VERY apologetic and said they did not get replenished after the World Cruise. She said that they had not been discontinued by HAL...
  5. Not a real pretty day in Kodiak... Shuttle bus to Walmart is FULL. Lots of folks heading out for excursions...
  6. Cabin 6159 from each side...
  7. Here is a photo of 7021, two opposite doors and the Neptune...
  8. Was on the elliptical in the gym when this eagle decided to perch just forward of the ship... Didn't have my good camera so forgive the quality...
  9. The last time we were here, we tendered in. Now, there is a very nice pier and walkway. They even have a vehicle to carry passengers to the end of the pier.
  10. Tracy Arm was light winds and mid 50s... Was very comfortable in a long sleeve shirt and light jacket. Juneau was lower 60s and light winds. We are approaching Icy Strait and it is raining in the mountains to the NE of here... Still comfortable on deck in long sleeves...
  11. I regret that there was just a medical evacuation from the ship. Patient was on stretcher and talking. Left with another person and their luggage via EMS. A horrible way to leave the ship... On a brighter note, there were two Filipino BBQ huts just to the side of the pier and they were surrounded by crew ALL DAY LONG. It was the talk of the ship... On to Icy Strait tomorrow...
  12. A beautiful day in Juneau...
  13. Pinnacle Grill Breakfast - Manager is Peter. Service is a bit better with two new servers today. They did offer croissants and muffins today. No coffee refill offered. Orders were mostly correct. Wife ordered Eggs Benedict but whites were VERY watery although she ordered well done. Servers are pleasant but inattentive... Yesterday, the paperwork and front desk said it would open at 0730 which is unusual for sea day. Sure enough, we sat outside until 0800 when they opened. One customer had called to confirm and Guest Services said 0730... Neptune gals are SUPER. Maria from Columbia and Camile from the Philippines. Have seen other negative comments about MDR but we have been very pleased with the service and menu selection. Servers are attentive and anxious to please. LM
  14. We anchored last night between Tracy Arm and Juneau... Was a quick 1.5 hour cruise into Juneau...
  15. The hotspot router is a GodSend... We have three iPhones, one iPad and a MacBook all on at the same time... Super easy to set up and works great. We disconnect when we leave the cabin...
