Cool Cruiser

Cool Cruiser (2/15)

  1. So have to do it on ship? That kinda sucks for us since we are on a cruisetour and wont get to Whittier until 2PM earliest.
  2. What's the wine for embarkation night? Last cruise we took was Carnival and they had a 50% off wine if you went to the steakhouse on embarkation night. Decent stuff too and with the 50% off we were sometime eblow retail. Ended up getting 8 bottles of various stuff (Including Caymus, Frank Family Cab, Siler Oak) and the steward "opened" them by pulling the cork halfway out of each bottle. then we told the waiter which bottle we wanted and he went ad grabbed it.
  3. Anyone got a list of plus wines vs premier wines? We are leaving Saturday for Fairbanks for three days before our cruise tour and start on Majestic on Sep 9 and debating upgrading. I have the booze list but not wine. Also, got a coupon book that has a note about a free bottle for specialty dining on embarkation day. Anyone done that? What's the wine?
  4. Also what can OBC be used for if we book. Errands A cabin?
  5. Switching to back to trip insurance, The main attraction of the Viking policy is the cancel for any reason coverage with a cruise that is still almost two years away. With third party its limited typically to 75% of the coverage cost (I guess you could bump it up, but they might want receipts) vs 100% for Viking But you have to pay in full for Viking policy when you buy it, right? And then if you change things you forfeit that and have to buy a new policy? Maybe I got that wrong Has anyone done a third party policy where you cover the $200 or $250 deposit only to lock in the pre-existing condition (and CFAR if you go that route), then up the amount when you make final payment?
  6. Looking at July 2025 and saw the March due date for the grand European tour. 16 months in advance. Crazy. That being said, we like the idea of true balconies vs french balconies (maybe we shouldn't but on ocean cruises we always get a balcony, this is our first river cruise) and have friends who want the Big suites at the back of the ship. Are there equivalent tours on other lines with full balconies and big suite? Looks like Avalon and AMA only have french balconies? Haven't heard of he other lines and haven't researched yet.
  7. First off thanks so much for these links. So from these links seem the only plus stuff is $14 and under and Premium is $15 and over and I guess you can pay the difference if you have plus and order something from the premium menu? .
  8. Another question for @Stealthdog What types of shoes did you where when hiking at Denali? Trying to figure out what to pack
  9. The CC companies make a lot of money on the 3-5% fees they collect from the merchants every time you swipe a card also. Deadbeat here also but it took a long time to get to the point where I could afford to do so
  10. Anyone know what the premier booze and wine list is compared to Plus?
  11. @StealthdogDid they offer a winemakers dinner on your cruise? If so, which winery was it? Silverado or Caymus?
  12. I'd rather not pack a suit or tux if I dont need to. Used to be able to rent tux on board pre COVID. Anyone know if Princess has an option for this on Majestic Princess these days?
  13. So do you get detergent with the $3 you pay per token or do you need to bring your own
  14. What's the laundry situation? Seeing on other ships that it may be free, but not much on whether that applies to Majestic also. We are doing a land tour starting in Fairbanks Sep 5 before our Sep 9 southbound but are also staying three days before and three days in Vancouver on the back end, so laundry would be nice
  15. Anyone know about Majestic? Sailing Sep 9 but leaving a week earlier for extra days plus land tour
