  1. You are better than I am! I cant fit 12 days in to a carry on, I cant even begin to imagine it. I'm am struggling with packing but I got a few more hours to figure it out.
  2. Thank you, so much information and yet I feel so unprepared. A question regarding luggage is there a size limitation to the suitcase that travels separately. I can pack for the trip (land and cruise) in our large suitcase, so to bring 2 suitcases seems silly and more to handle. So I would just like to bring a suitcase for everything.
  3. Wow! Glad everyone is okay! I'm sure Princess is on top of this as this is their busy season.
  4. Again thamk you for the posts. We are doing a land tour before we arrive by train at 5:30. With a 5:00 dining time we just assumed we do buffet but it sounds like we can just do dinner after muster drill.
  5. Yes 4 minutes can be a lifetime in a call center. We are in a similar situation in that we booked more than a year ago and had a 5:00 dining time. About a month ago I realized on the 1st day we didn't even arrive to Whittaker until 5:30, the 2nd day we had a Hubbard excursion and wouldn't be there at 5. And as I looked at the rest of our excursions I'm like 5 o'clock dining isnt going to work. So I emailed our travel agent (also a friend)and asked her to change it to anytime dining. About 20 minutes later she emailed me and said she did it and she was sorry that we would be missed as ever
  6. You wont regret the balcony! Alaska us beautiful. I agree a 10 day response time is not good customer service. With that being said have a great voyage!
  7. Thank you. I did read there was no air but the tempuratures should be okay. Just trying how to pack and what to bring.
  8. I see no advantage on princess to book a guarentee cabin as there is no discount on it. Obviously if you book late that may be all that's available. However, if you book early chose your room as upgrades are rare in this day of upsells.
  9. Hi, I remember reading some of the princess hotels on the cruise tour do not have air conditioning, which is fine. However, as I start packing g I got to wondering can anyone tell me do they have hair dryers and do they provide shampoo and conditioner like most hotels. I am assuming the answer is yes but you know what they say about assuming. Thanks.
  10. So glad you finally got it worked out! Hard to believe July is almost here. We are doing a short landtour then July 3 leaving on the Coral.
  11. Mine is listed with the special services, ie sip and sail pack, free gratuities etc. Very easy to miss. I hope you get it resolved
  12. Dont forget to update as to how it's working. We are sailing July 3.
  13. "We recommend sort-sided tote bags or backpacks no larger than 17"X14"X4" width with a zip enclosure. Wheeled carry on cases that are used as carry-on luggage on airlines are too large and are not suitable as hand-carried luggage on motorcoaches and trains."
  14. Sorry I dont have a phone number, however look at your travel summary, near the end, under Special Services. If its noted there you are good to go
  15. I also thought a 10 day response was long however we did/ do have time. I emailed Princess/ Cunard on March 28, 2019 and recieved their automatic response about 10 days. We recieved an email response on April 10. You can do the math. It's timeliness is an area of customer service that can be improved on. You might want to review your travel summary and see if there is a notation on it. I have one on mine. I hope everything works out for you.
  16. We are about are less than 2 months out and while it's hard we have seen mini back packs and other types of totes that will work. We plan on having our paperwork, binoculars and medicine in it so we think we are good. But since we never been we cant a swerve your question, so we will follow.
  17. Our roll call is less than 2 months out and nothing much has been going on. I have had previous roll calls that were very lively and had organized events. Each roll call is different.
  18. Thank you. Sounds like a taxi for us. I appreciate the information. This is the first time we are doing a land tour pre cruise and staying after cruise for a few days to explore Vancouver, then flying back. If not think I want to struggle with the luggage on the the sky train from what I read our hotel is not along that line.
  19. Thanks again. Yes we will go through customs at YVR. That's great news! Other then getting up early and standing in line we will be good to go. Glad we wont have to worry about stuff in Seattle. We are so very excited.
  20. Thank you. Our plane leave around 6:30 am and we will be going from hotel to airport. So that sound easy enough. However in regards to suitcases. I assume (silly me) that once they are checked in through the airline or customs or both then Delta will handle the transfer in Seattle? I will check Nexus and see if we have enough time to get it before we leave. While we have done several cruises we previously always arrived back at US port and while researching this stuff it gets more confusing. Also need took at Sky Train routes....tha k you
  21. If a washer is done and nobody around I check to see if dryers are all in use. If not I place the wash in the dryer and start my wash using the now vacant washer. If they come while I'm doing this, I tell them its waiting in the the dryer, they just need to start it. If no dryer is vacant I loosely fold it and leave on table. If a dryer is done and I need it, I loosely fold the clothes and also put on the table. So far no one has been upset. But I am always very pleasant and say something like oh the dryer stopped and I folded them so they wouldn't get wrinkled. No sense in
