  1. I purchased a cruise for my BF and I for next September (2020) in Alaska. I've cruised before but he hasn't. His birthday is in February and I will be giving him the gift then (he'll be 40, hence the reason for this bigger than usual gift). I want to give him an Alaska book (even though I will be the one to plan everything - LOL - I know my role) but also wanted to give him something that would be helpful for a first time cruiser. Any ideas? TIA.
  2. In case any of you are going mid-September like I am, Jayleen's is shutting down for the 2020 season on September 17 (of course I wanted September 20). So I went with Harv and Marv who appear to be running until October.
  3. I love this news. Now I don't have to carry on a 12 pack. Coke is just too fizzy for my taste.
  4. Most important question - did you get a picture of the whale?
  5. They cut into my case of soda in Tampa to look for alcohol.
  6. If wine is your thing, you're each allowed to bring a bottle of wine with you on board.
  7. I purchased FTTF last time I cruised as my mother gets very anxious if she thinks we're going to be late anywhere. As in, if we're not 3 hours early, she's a basket case thinking we might be late. Didn't want to start out vacation with that stress for either of us so it was worth it. My $.02.
  8. Is a whale watching excursion better out of Juneau or ISP? I'm thinking I want to do both a helicopter/plane onto a glacier SOMEWHERE but haven't done sufficient research on that yet. Time frame is mid September 2020.
  9. With the amount of time we'll be staying in port, I was thinking about booking non cruise ship excursions. Like Harv and Marv's out of Juneau that has gotten great reviews on other sites for whale watching and is much less pricey than the cruise-sanctioned excursions.
  10. Just booked a cruise with a similar itinerary in mid September 2020. What excursions did you decide on? How was the weather?

    Alaska Cruises

    The cruise I have booked from Seattle (Sept. 2020) has ISP and Ketchikan. Plus it cruises Tracy Army Fjord and stops in Juneau and Skagway.
  12. September 2020 cruise Juneau Skagway ISP Ketchikan Taking my boyfriend on his first cruise. He turns 40 in February 2020 so I am going to give it to him then. Gotta admit - BF really likes his beer; he's a fan of the IPA. Any beers/microbreweries/beer tours we should check out?
  13. I was on the same cruise (Paradise) and we loved Havana! We used Havana Journey and it was fantastic!
  14. Just got off the Paradise. When we met with our steward on the first day, he gave us a form to complete and it asked whether we wanted our cabin serviced morning, evening or both. Yes, "both" was an option.
