  1. I was on this cruise also! Wonderful time. I agree with the room stewards - not real helpful nor friendly. They only made towel animals once, much to the disappointment to of my cabin mates (my 15yr daughter and her friend). There were tons of children on this cruise but it never was a problem. No real drunks either. Very enjoyable. Ports were fun and much shopping was done by the two teens. They finally learned to barter by the last port! The highlight of the trip was the dolphin swim in Cabo. The girls loved it. I enjoyed the sea days to relax on the balcony and read.
  2. I'm not 100% sure, but I think no. It's per glass.
  3. I've done both. They were 2 great cruises. Sailing under the Lions Gate Bridge was awesome and if remember correctly, the Sun sailed inside more that the Star. They are both great ships.
  4. I use Bonine. 1/2 pill in the morning and the other half in the evening. Works like a charm! No drowsy side effects at all!
  5. Take a walk over to Pikes Market. There are several little shops that have water/soda. I also picked up some flowers, snacks, etc at the market for our cruise. It's a bit of an uphill hike, but well worth it.
  6. We have cruised on both the Sun (August) and Star (July) to Alaska. Our daughter swam both times and loved it. The Star pool was outside and I think the Sun was also.
  7. :D Nice to see I'm not the only one who does that! :D
  8. I agree. It really depends on economics. It was substantially cheaper for us to fly to Seattle, take the train to Vancouver and then rent a car and drive back to Seattle then it was to fly directly to Vancouver. We saved a lot of money that way. We also added a 3 day stay in Seattle (pre cruise) and a 3 day stay in Vancouver (post cruise). One warning is the border on the way back - it could be a long wait if there is a lot of traffic.
  9. I got these for my next cruise. Very well made. http://cgi.ebay.com/Cruise-ID-Lanyard-Pouch-Travel-Document-Set_W0QQitemZ280298518250QQcmdZViewItemQQptZLH_DefaultDomain_0?hash=item280298518250&_trksid=p3911.c0.m14&_trkparms=72%3A1205|66%3A2|65%3A12|39%3A1|240%3A1318
  10. Funny thread, but WAY too much information! :D
  11. I did this on our last cruise and our room stewards SPOILED our teen with several towel animals each night. I plan on doing this again when I cruise in April with her and her friend.
  12. I did pretty much what StLouisCruisers did and got the Crowne Plaza for $69 for April 3rd. You can also get good advice on bidding at betterbidding.com Good luck!
  13. I took that very same Sun cruise in 2007. We flew into Seattle and took the train to Vancouver and then rented a car and drove back to Seattle after the cruise. Doing that was over $375.00 cheaper than flying directly into Vancouver. We flew into Seattle and spent a few days before taking the train to Vancouver - nice, relaxing ride. After the cruise, we spent a few days in Vancouver before returning to Seattle. Day of our flight: We left early and thought we would be sitting at the airport for a couple of hours....NOPE. We spent 3.5 HOURS in line at the border! We got to the airport in time, but we did rush. The lines at the border were terribly long. Give yourself plenty of time to get to Seattle and you should be good. Was it worth it.....yeah, it was. We did have to pay a penalty for not filling up the car gas tank, but we still saved money in the long run. Have a great cruise....been to Alaska twice and love it both times!
  14. I always used betterbidding.com for information on priceline bidding. If you read the site, they give you lots great information on how to bid and get the best bang for your buck. Good Luck!
  15. Hi CACruiseLady, Come join our roll call. It's kinda slow right now, but I am sure it will pick up as the cruise time get closer. http://boards.cruisecritic.com/showthread.php?t=809715
