    Cool Cruiser
  1. I bought the premium internet for VPN as well. But it was so slow I didn't bother connecting. Internet was slow all over the ship. On port days I just used my phone's cellular connection instead.
  2. I was in a deck 15 mini suite on this cruise as well. Maybe we were neighbors? Lol i agree with pretty much everything you said. A few additional notes: 1) wifi was atrocious. I have to stress this again. Almost unusable. I thought this ship was supposed to have fast wifi technology? I had paid for the premium wifi which supposedly let you stream video. But it took about a minute just to load youtube.com homepage, so forget about actually watching any videos. Did the Norwegian bliss have such bad wifi in Alaska too? Also curious how the Royal Caribbean ships fare in Alaska in this regard. 2) footloose was fantastic. 3) agree that deck 15 rooms are great due to their proximity to the lounges. On glacier bay day, we took snacks from the lounge to watch the scenery on our balcony. But our rooms were right below the pool deck and we could definitely hear the thumping when they had parties above. 4) I was wondering why the docking time at Victoria moved up. I guess the shortened katichkan port call explains it. I actually like this change, because it turned a really awkward throwaway after-dark Victoria port call into a somewhat meaningful one. We took the $15 bus to town and walked around downtown (only to find out later that uber had a free promotion that day...)
