  1. Copper10-8, thank you for all of the help you gave to some other cruisers earlier!
  2. I greatly enjoyed your comments and helpful hints. Glad you had a good time. I love Alaska!
  3. Looking forward to more of your trip. This is on my bucket list. Terrific reading!
  4. Can’t wait to see more, but I feel really bad for you regarding your ankle.
  5. After sailing on the Disney Fantasy once we have followed their rule. We use a clean glass in the Lido to get our ice then water pouring both into bottle/insulated cup without touching the rim. Unfortunately on the Fantasy many adults and kids never followed the rules that were posted right in front of them. Have fun on your cruise.
  6. Really enjoyed your post! Husband and I did this in reverse August of 2018 and really loved it. Totally agree with you about the Westmark in Whitehorse it needed some definite updates that I’d hoped might have been done by now. We really loved Scagway and Dawson. Thanks for the chance to relive the trip!
  7. We have been to Denali twice. Husband and I both had large “checked style” bags and then carry-on types. Your larger bags are transported to Denali by trucks, small personal bags stay with you in the train.
  8. Just looking for opinions from you all (southern a little) on whether or not you feel crowded on these ships. My DH and I have been on the Zaandam twice and the Nieuw Amsterdam once but that was only for 3 nights. Thanks
  9. Hey Miss G, my husband and I returned May 4th from the Ft. Lauderdale to Montreal cruise on the Zaandam. Second time on the Zaandam and really enjoy her. Not so big that you can’t get from one end to the other easily and never felt crowded. Ate most breakfasts in Lido but have also enjoyed the MDR, very restful breakfast. DH and I were in Vista suite and I don’t think it was any larger than a Veranda and really perks weren’t anything. We are both from Florida and were prepared for the cold but not the winds that really dropped the wind chill. Cadillac Mountain, Peggy’s Cove, Lunenburg, Fortress Louisbourg, and out at Anne of Green Gables the wind was really gusting and cold. Hope you have better luck! But we didn’t have rain ☔️. We ate at a couple of good restaurants IMO; Geddy’s right on the Main Street up from Harbor in Bar Harbor. Look for the lobster over the door, lobster roll, chowder and blueberry tart. At Lunenburg we ate at Salt Shaker Deli a small family place with good food and people. We were some of those people that were up at 4am. to get ready and on bus by 6:30 for transit to Montreal airport for a flight scheduled at 3:35pm 🤭☹️. Have a great time, oh and we rarely used veranda after Boston, too cold😂
  10. Learned my lesson on a Disney cruise as far as dispensing water. We always use a clean glass to put water, ice into our travel bottles and never touch rim or dispenser. Hated seeing so many kids/parents that never did that. Also, I’m not much for speaking directly to offenders either. I would speak to management.
  11. We also did an Alaska/Yukon tour in 2018. We did not choose to purchase the meal plan because it was limited to meals in the hotels/lodge you were staying in. We preferred choosing where we wanted to eat. On the land portion our tour guide, Patrick, always gave us suggestions of places to eat and they were always spot on. I will say that in Canada and the Yukon portions were pretty large and my husband and I were frequently able to split a meal between us. Hope you have a great time.
