  1. alohayall: I never bought the beverage package. But the prize of the cocktails is high.
  2. I waited about 30 minutes for the results. I did not have the luggage with me, but there were some people with small carry ons with them. We handed our luggage in the Seattle airport to the NCL representative and I saw it in my cabin in early afternoon.
  3. The testing went smooth. It helped that I completed the sign up with Eurofins, which is the company conducting the testing. You will swirl the swab on your nostrils yourself, and hand it back to the technician.
  4. Let me clarify: the price of 1 margarita and 1 Long Island ice tea with gratuity was $34 on the first day. They use one exit and they did not separate those going on a tour from those who did not on disembarkation. It was a real mess!
  5. Disembarkation at Icy Strait Point ( Hoona Is) was a mess! The prices of the drinks are higher ( a margarita a Long Island Ice tea $34). I regret not getting the drink package with this prices. So, I highly recommend the drink package because a single can of seltzer water with gratuity will cost you $3.60. Service has being fantastic. Food is outstanding. we enjoyed Choir of Man tremendously.
  6. Sailing in NCL Encore on 8/14 ! we have ATT and I will like to know how well is the phone service in Icy Strait Point, Skagway, Juneau and Ketchikan. Will I have to contact ATT and get extra service. Thanks for the replies.
  7. What can I expect from NCL on August 14 ( my sail date)?
  8. Thank you. Do you mind sharing how did you get the tour operators?
  9. Cruising August 14 on NCL Encore from Seattle. I will like to book tours with private operators rather than NCL. Is Alaska allowing private tour operators to do tours already? we are doing Icy Strait, Skagway, Juneau, and Ketchikan. any advice?
  10. To bottom-dragged : 😱 i thought I only had to deal with them in Cozumel.
  11. Going to Alaka on NCL Encore on 8/14/2021. First time in Alaska. My main concern is: What to pack as far as clothing? I have cruise like 15 times, mostly in the Caribbean, never in Alaska. Thanks in advance for any tips.
