  1. I meant t respond there wasn't a lot of prawns on the cruise i was on. There was prawns and steak on gala night that was very good. There was prawn cocktail and a prawn mussel hot pot for the seafood buffet. I saw more shrimp on the menu. I had a good piece of halibut and salmon. I like prawns as a treat anyway.
  2. Sorry i was told by another poster not to post competitor's websites as cruise critic doesn't like it. Hint to cruise critic: if you could post cruise prices in canadian dollars too that would be helpful.
  3. I thought the sail away inside was no single supplement on some sailings. I saw it on vacations to go.
  4. Just a note that there were only 2 solo gatherings. The first night there was a solo gathering and no one came. There was a solo lunch on the first sea day and 8 people came. They said there would be a solo lunch the last sea day but there was nothing in the program. Some popular topics if you want to start a conversation is Where are you from? Have you cruised before? What excursion did you do or are you doing? Lots of opportunities to have short casual conversations. Just a note I am an introvert although have become more experienced eating with strangers with going to dinner meetups.
  5. I'm back from my cruise. Basically there is a lot of thumping up above. I confess to taking 1/2 a sleeping pill a few nights and i slept well because of this. I would get that location again as it is convenient to dining room, theatre, lincoln centre stage and walking track. I like to be able to take the stairs. Definitely not that room though. Now i know.
  6. I just got back from my alaskan cruise and it was quite rough leaving Ketchikan. It was a sunny day that day too. I was mad because it was gala night and i couldn't finish my yummy dinner. I had to go to my room. It was quite calm otherwise.
  7. I noticed a studio on ovation of the seas for a hawaiian cruise and it wasn't cheaper than paying double. Is this common with the studios? I know a solo room i looked at on serenade was cheaper than paying double.
  8. I'm interested in hearing what people thought of this cruise. I notice some cruises in october have no single supplement. Is that common for this cruise or is it just because i thought its storm season then? I wouldn't go this year, but would be interested in the future. It looks like a great itinerary. I'm actually from vancouver and there are cruises from here but it looks expensive when you double it. I probably need to do more research.
  9. I had a great solo travel experience! I mainly ate in the dining room for dinner at a 6 person table. People were friendly. I even ate with a family and 2 couples who sailed together and i still found they talked to me. My one not so successful experience was afternoon tea at an 8 table, I find the table a bit impersonal but its partially the conversation didn't interest me. I had some success with the buffet as people would sit with me if they couldn't find a seat but i prefer the mdr. Lots of opportunities to talk to people, It was an alaskan Holland america cruise. I preferred to eat alone for breakfast.
  10. Is there a public bus that goes to alaska state museum?
  11. Thanks, yes i have a cell phone. Would i get the internet if i have a data plan well?
  12. It looks like skagway and juneau don't have coffee shops open in the evening at this time of year unless one knows of one? I was wondering if i could call with a us long distance plan from a ship in port as it doesn't seem like there is a good spot in town to do it in the evening.
  13. Thanks. I have earplugs too. I think I will be wary about getting a guaranteed room after this. Also, to people looking at room reviews in cruise critic don't just look at the stars beside the room as the rating is actually for the whole cruise review. When i actually read the review the poster was giving 5 stars for the cruise, but spoke negatively about the room. Also make sure you post here as well. Thanks for the feedback!
  14. Arrgh. Live and learn. It is the day before my cruise so too late to change now. Too be honest i have some sleeping pills so will probably just drug myself to sleep.
  15. Im in e1120 on the main deck on the noordam. The dining room is above. Am i going to hear diners above? If so when does the dining room open?
