  1. Same. September 2020 to Alaska was cancelled so I rolled everything over to September 2021 and did not have to pay any extra. Since the 2021 cruise is more expensive, I will have to pay more at the back end, but I hope we know something about the Alaska season prior to the final payment date.
  2. This is exactly what I was going to say - I read on the Book that the price is significantly higher with the "free" Cheers than without.
  3. I would go back to Havana again in a heartbeat!!
  4. If they don't lift it, it will seriously impact the Alaska cruise season for 2021. Many of these are 8 days or longer.
  5. Glad I went when I did (cruise to Cuba). I've been to Key West a number of times, when I used to live in Miami, but it was still a fun port. We did the butterfly conservancy and stopped at Kermits and did a trolley tour. I think this remarkably short sighted on Key West's part, but hey, it's their call. With fewer people travelling because of Covid, I think the last thing you would want to do is further reduce tourism.
  6. I like that I can eat early and BF can eat late. He can come with me and get a bowl of soup while I eat and I can come with him and get an extra dessert and coffee while he eats. Win-win for us!
  7. Just for the purposes of comparison... this is our September cruise route on Carnival. Not saying mine is better or worse (mine doesn't do Dawes Glacier) but it *is* much more port intensive. Regardless of whichever one you pick, I hope you have a great time.
  8. In my cruising group on the Book of Faces page for my Carnival cruise to Alaska, the admin posted this earlier today: ***** Morning all. I would like to address you a few things. The rules in place now will not be what is in place for next year. We have only been told some basics for now and will know more in about 2 weeks. Masks for boarding & embarking. this will be phased out over the next year. Mask will need to be worn in places that you cannot social distance. Cruise lines are working hard to change things up to avoid it. On lido no masks. T
  9. Thanks, Glaciers.... I was hoping you'd chime in. Your posts have been very helpful to me in the past. Coming into a city that I've only visited twice from the opposite coast is a bit daunting! It's really only a price difference of $50 or so a night to stay at the The Mediterranean Inn (versus a chain hotel by the airport) and I think the plan is to arrive just the day before the cruise. Without having made our airline reservations yet, though, I am not completely sure. BF will be of no help.. he's happy to turn everything over to me! LOL. My current thought is to find a hot
  10. If flying in for a cruise (and thus not having a car), is it better to stay in a hotel for one night closer to the cruise ship terminal (#66) or the airport? I figure I'm going to either have to pay a taxi/Uber at some point but don't know which would make sense.
  11. I haven't been yet but have an 8 day out of Seattle booked for September that stops in Ketchikan and ISP. We avoid summer dates because we don't like cruising with kids (personal preference - nothing against kids). Plus cold and rainy are BF's preferences. Yes, he's a weirdo. Whichever cruise you pick, I have heard great things about the small boat excursion while you cruise Tracey Arm Fjord. It picks you up from the ship and you can get closer to the glaciers. I am not recommending it because I haven't experienced it yet, but something for you to look into whichever cruise yo
  12. We have an evening in Victoria on our cruise (something like 8 p.m. to midnight). I had signed us up for the Sights and Flavors of Victoria shore excursion through Carnival, which sounds delightful..... But I learned this weekend on a trip with my BF that his stomach and buses don't mix well. So it's back to the drawing board. Is there anything that a) can be seen at that hour of night, b) that's close by (within walking distance - if it's safe)? Thanks in advance for any ideas! ETA: We are not going until September 2021 so by then it is my fervent hope that Canad
