Hi everyone. My partner and I (and his sister and Mom) will be taking our first cruise this summer. We'll be on Royal Caribbean going to Alaska. What really started as a way for his Mom to get to mark another state off her visit-all-the-states-list, has become a trip I'm looking forward to immensely. I've been reading up on our itinerary, excursions are booked, specialty dining figured out...we're ready to go!
