  1. Hello, This will be our 97 cruise, but first time to Alaska. We appreciate if anybody can answer our questions and feel free to give us any advice. We chose May 25, starting with Princess AB3 tour for three evenings and then on the Majestic for 7 nights. 1- Do you feel we should get the transfers that Princess offers or do the transfers on our own, if on our own, any idea the cost for the transfers from airport to the Captain Hook hotel? 2- The motor coach is their a bathroom or does the bus makes stops 3- The first evening while at the Hotel Captain Cook, we are on our own for the day, any recommendations on what to see and do 4- Any recommendation on what we should do while at or stay in McKinley Princess Wilderness Lodge while we have free time? 5- When we are at Denali why additional tours do you recommend for us to take while we have leisure time 6- On our Denali tour which I read are schoolhouses, do they make time for rest stops? (5 hours is too much for me to wait to get to the destination lol) 7- The tour brings us to the Wilderness Rail to Whittier, where we board the ship, I read luggage storage on the train is very limited under our seats, are we able to fit a 26" luggage there? 8- Please give us recommendations for tours and things to see and do in Skagway, Juneau and Ketchikan, we are. not hikers. 9- How far is the port in Vancouver to the airport? Thank you so very much.
  2. Thank you so much...as for us, we won't take the vaccination unless its mandatory to have for travel. The problem with the vaccination if one is available is that it will not cover all the strains of the virus...just like the flu vaccination. I just want to hear they have a plan should anybody be ill on these ships and not have them stranded at sea for days. Lets keep our fingers and toes crossed.
  3. Does anybody have an updated list of comp cruises from January to march next year?
  4. Hello, We made the decision last night to cancel our November 2 Reflection cruise this year due to the fact it may not happen and don't want to be on the first few cruises as we are unable to get stuck at sea indefinitely because of work purposes. This cruise is a comp...we like to choose another comp cruise for January/February next year and since blue chip is closed on weekened and we are trying to make other travel arrangements today for the remaining of this year to other places, we need to know which cruises next year have you received a comp for...assuming if you have a comp cruise there is a chance we could get one and can start making our travel plans today. So if any of you are on a casino blue chip comp cruise, can you tell me what your sailing and ship is for January to early march next year?
  5. As we are aware, there been a few ships that were stuck at sea and unable to get back due to the coronavirus, I do believe most of them finally were able to dock somewhere for passengers to get off...my question, I realize they were given three meals a day and were confined to their cabins, what happens if this came true on a RC ship...question, if we have the drink package are we able to get drinks in the cabin? LOL. I told you very odd.
  6. I read now we have another case 15th...yes, we wash our hands every opportunity we get. I do believe everything will be fine, thank you!
  7. True, we have 6 weeks, lets just hope it doesn't get worse....that is what I tell him. thank you
  8. This is difficult but as a cruiser that has been on 93 cruises so far and on all the ships you mentioned.... Freedom goes to WONDERFUL ports, if your one to do shore excursions and love beaches this is the place for you...as far as the ship, it still is an upgrade to the Breeze....RC food is much better.....entertainment also much better. I believe she just got out of a refurbishment this January-february, may still be in dry dock as we speak, so that is a plus. We go to Aruba for two weeks each year, it is the BEST island ever...tradewinds always keep you not sweating, a ton of shore excursions of all kinds, food is excellent and the people are the best! Harmony is one of my favorite ships, love the Oasis class, so many choices on places to eat and so much for the kids to do. I have cruised so far 7 times on the Oasis class and they are one of my favorite ships! She goes to Coco Cay know the kids will love that. If they into swimming there are many nice large pools on this ship. Its truly an amazing ship! Another thing, you do not have to fly to San Juan. Would definitely cruise RC over Carnival in a heartbeat. You can't go wrong with either two RC ships....
  9. Hello, We are diamond will there be a designated place on the ship for us to get off priority? We have a 10:30am flight out of Ft. Lauderdale, I don't think we have an issue but do you feel that we may have a problem making our flight? For those who have been on the Empress, what time did you get off the ship? If we walk our luggage off where do we meet on the ship?
  10. I guess that means he must go or give me two Aruba two week trips this year lol....I am booked on the Celebrity Reflection 11 night cruise for November so I am sure this all will pass by then, thank you.
  11. No, just Bahamas, key west and such...but there is a ship that sailed from San Juan, Caribbean princess and is cut short because of the norovirus but was denied docking at other ports ( Trinidad & Tobago) because of the fear of coronavirus...she currently s headed home to Ft. Lauderdale. Ron, my other half does not want to be stuck at sea, not this time of year due to work issues....if he doesn't go am I able to go?
  12. Hello, My other half gets casino offers, we are currently booked on the Empress for March 28th. With all that is happening now with these ships not being able to dock, spending longer periods of time and unable to get back (even the latest- Princess ship unable to dock due to norovirus)...my other half must get back to work....my elderly father in law is also going with us, question, if my other half doesn't go does that mean I am unable to board the ship?
  13. RC should give full refund this will allow those who are ill to cancel and not go instead of going because they paid for it and they will loose their money if they don't go...RC needs to do the right thing and realize giving full refunds actually will help and save others from getting ill.
  14. What happens if somebody was banned because of fever but actually had a regular cold or a regular virus and they don't get their money back, they simply go to the doctor to get tested, found they are negative then sue RC for discrimination? Oh boy, this is necessary but it can be a huge problem for the cruise line.
  15. Lets face it, things are going to be worse, there will be more cases right here in the USA as flights also come into our country. My other half wants to cancel next months Empress cruise, I told him if you see or hear anybody coughing run, thats all, I am still going because it won't really matter where we are, we can be at our own hometown grocery shopping or running an errand and can get it, can't live that way.
  16. Does anybody know the name of the band that is currently on the Empress? We have select time dining, what would the best time to go for dinner to get the least wait time?
  17. Thank you so very much, we are on the 11 night ABC island Reflection November 2 cruise.
  18. I am sorry, cruise too much wrong cruise line lol
