  1. So how you find out which trips are repositioning???? Thanks
  2. Last October we did the HAL transfer by bus. It took just over an hour. We left about 11 am. There ware several buses going later. Danny
  3. THANK YOU for the help. Yes we're staying at the Fairmont at the airport. My wife thinks we will just tug our luggage with us because it will have EVERYTHING we need. To be determined later I think. :) Danny
  4. When doing a combination Land/Cruise from Vancouver, does your tour guide meet you at the hotel for the flight to Whitehorse and handle your luggage the morning of the start? Thanks Danny
  5. We did the 12 day from Rome to Venice last October. Flew into Rome on the day of the cruise because our AA flight arrived at 9:30 am local and took the HAL transfer to the port. We had such a great time visiting the Greek islands, so much history and sights. After the cruise, we stayed 2 days in Venice and then took the High Speed train to Rome and stayed 4 days there. It was easier for us to fly in and out of Rome from California. I did all the planning myself, stayed in Marriott related hotels and ate with the locals. I believe that you will not be disappointed, we weren't. Just be prepared to climb A LOT of stairs and steps. Hope this helps
  6. Thanks, I posted there and they suggested to post here
  7. We're doing the 11 day land portion and was wondering what shoes are best for this portion of the trip? Don't know how much walking in the wilderness there is, so do we need hiking shoes or just tennis shoes? Thanks for the help. Danny

  9. Last October we did the 12 day Greek Odyssey. We left California basically the day before the cruise and flew to Dallas and then a non-stop flight to Rome arriving at 9 am local time, which was a 11 1/2 hour flight. We did the HAL transfer to the port. We didn't have any jet lag and had the most wonderful trip. That's just our experience. Danny
  10. We thought it was WAY expensive for our trip. Others in the Alaska port of call forum say the same thing. Danny
  11. So before we decided to do the 1YL, I attended a cruise program from our TA and they had 2 HAL people give the Alaskan program, a father-son combo. The son is a tour guide with HAL for the land portion. They both claimed that the HAL train car windows were made by Kodac so that picture taking resulted with no distortion. Interesting Danny
  12. We're going on the 1Y cruise (land 1st) but because the Aug 28 was sold out (land portion) we decided on July 31. Do you know which hotel is scheduled for the stay in Fairbanks, is it the Westmark or another one? Thanks Danny
  13. Thanks for the information. Danny
  14. Do days on a land portion of the land/cruise count the same as sea days, SO on our 18 day land/cruise, is it 18 days or only 7 days for the sea portion? Thanks Danny
  15. Does anyone know which hotel you stay at when doing the Denali land cruise in Anchorage? Is it a Westmark Hotel like the in Fairbanks? Thanks for the help. Danny
