  1. I just booked an 11 night roundtrip from Vancouver for September 2022. We have been to all the ports included before except Sitka and Victoria. Sitka, for some reason, has always been on my bucket list. What are the best excursions to do in Sitka? We're already booked for whale watching in Juneau, and possibly Icy Strait, so it doesn't have to be whale related. And also, suggestions for Victoria while you're at it. We have a full day there and not just an evening like most cruises.
  2. I just booked an 11 night roundtrip out of Vancouver for September 2022. The way I see it, if it get's canceled, I'll just get a refund. Basically I've been using my booked cruises as a savings account for the last 2 years 🤣
  3. We went with Jayleen in 2018, and are booked with her next year already. Small boat, super custom to what you want to see. Jayleen is the absolute sweetest, born and bred Juneauite. You will not be disappointed by going with her.
  4. We're booked for end of August. I'm not canceling until someone tells me I have to. If the cruise gets canceled, we'll go to Alaska anyway and do land, if we're allowed to fly.
  5. Well, that's great for you, but some of us have businesses that we left running in someone elses hands, pets, kids, elderly family members, and number of things that we would need to be able to be reached while on vacation...simply turning off your phone for days at a time is not realistic.
  6. Nope, I still have my perks from when I booked, which were $300 OBC, free wifi, Premium drink package, and prepaid gratuities, my balcony is guaranteed (cabin 7202 on Celebrity Millennium), and still have my $405 Costco gift card that I got for booking through Costco travel.
  7. We sail August 21, Seward to Vancouver. I have no plans of canceling, and in fact, I have called twice and had my price adjusted down $1000, plus upgraded to an aft facing corner family balcony room that ended up being $10 cheaper than our price after getting $1000 taken off. I will be going on this cruise unless the cruise line forces cancellation. And if that happens, we'll use our tickets to fly to Alaska as long as air travel is not being banned then also.
  8. I think you mean Seward, but I would do one way for sure.
  9. Is there public transport that could get us from wherever we stay to the cruise terminal? And is the cruise terminal location somewhere that we would want to stay? We definitely want to explore Venice while we're there, and if being close to the cruise terminal isn't the best option for doing that, we are not worried about getting luggage to the terminal. We'd rather stay near whatever the city center is, close to restaurants, shopping, touristy things.
  10. We are sailing out of Venice for a Greece/Croatia cruise, not until September 2021. Family of 6. We are wanting to fly into Venice at least 3 days ahead of the cruise and stay. What is the best area that would be convenient to restaurants and the sites of Venice, since we won't have a vehicle? I have never been to Italy so this is all new to me. Thank you!
  11. When we were there in 2018, we did not plan an excursion, and we were bored. So We definitely want to plan an excursion this year. What were your favorite excursions here? We are already whale watching in Juneau. Not opposed to it again, but probably looking for something different. We'll be there in August.
  12. Depends on who you are as a person. I do not want to hang out on deck with other people. My whole life is full of other people lol, and on vacation, I want as little interaction with humans as possible. So we always get a balcony and I would never cruise without one. If you're a people person, and don't think you'll spend much time in your room, save the money and stay in an inside and enjoy the scenery from the public spaces.
  13. If I had been a teenager when cell phones were popular, and my parents had paid for a trip to Alaska, and I spent my vacation with my nose in a phone, my mother would have thrown my phone overboard without hesitation. Either take them and tell them that they need to be present and involved, or leave them at home with an extensive list of chores and go have fun. I have no idea how anyone, at any age, could have a bad time in Alaska, but I guess everyone is different.
  14. Not specific to Alaska, but magnetic hooks for the walls. We did this for the first time in October and it was life changing! lol, so much easier to hang things up and not have random stuff just hanging all over the room.
