  1. We are on a celebrity northbound cruise on a few days. Several of our excursions are early starts 730, 700 am); seems restaurants aren’t quite open and even if they opened at 7, might be a rush job to do something. Anyone have guidance? I guess room service those days.....

    Time in Ports

    We're on an upcoming cruise from Vancouver to Alaska and have booked shore excursions in every port..Ketchikan, Skagway, Icy Straits, Juneau. While those will certainly keep us busy, what else is there to do in each town? We're not looking to do any more excursions, but wondering if we would have time to stroll around and take in the areas. Any thoughts, how much time should we anticipate we would need?
  3. @Kartgv, we are booked in Suite Class, so not sure we have the same views. But never been on this ship, let alone any ship!
  4. @ orginolsin, Lol, hadn't considered all the other matters, though I do think we will bring Binoculars rather than rely on the ones in the room. As an FYI, we are going with Ship excursions rather than arrange our own. We will have preferred disembarkation, so that should help us with the queues. Certainly, we are looking to learn, without overthinking, all the options, nuances for our first cruise.
  5. that's very helpful, @zqvol. Yes, we have a large Balcony and that would be our thought. @Heidi13, hadn't considered the sunset!
  6. What do you cruisers think about having in room dining on the first night of departure out of Vancouver on an Alaska cruise? Are the sights good enough to stay in the room?
  7. Heading out on our first cruise, one to Alaska Northbound. Looking back at your first cruise, Alaska or otherwise, what are the things you wish you knew about before you went on the cruise? What things would you wish to do over, or should have done?
