  1. I have my own personal summer. Seriously. Sweat city right here...so I'm taking my waterproof rain poncho and layering ..will bring my jacket but it says our 10 day forecast has a few days that are 57 but mostly high 60's. So I don't have a ton of long pants ..mostly capris...and normally am in minimal clothing in those temps...I'll bring the long pants but have a feeling I'm wasting luggage space
  2. Ok so I fly out in 2 days to Seattle and thank you guys for your help on this from my inquiries last year...I've decided to take sneakers as I won't need boots for my excursions...I typically have my own personal summer and would sweat to death and it 70 degrees so I'm taking some warm weather stuff..hat, jacket...no gloves though. So excited I can not stand it!
  3. I have about a large amount on GC's for this Alaskan Cruise....I'm paying for an excursion and the rest is gambling …...If I have anything left in the end it pays toward the next cruise!

    We usually do the Caribbean cruises since we live in Florida..but for our 20th anniversary we knew we wanted it to be special. So I researched. This has been 2 years in the making. Alaska has been something we wanted to do for awhile. So in 9 days we will be on the Legend. I've booked excursions in EVERY port except Victoria and Ketchikan. I still may wrangle up something for Ketchikan. I knew I had to book early and buy excursions early. I have saved up for my carnival gift cards to apply to my account. I prepaid gratuities and I feel like I'm good to go. Staying in Seattle for 3 days after the cruise to check it out... so I can NOT imagine NOT planning!!!
  5. We are cruising next June 2019 and have booked a whale excursion in Juneau...it ends at noon. Our ship departs at 3 pm, I'm wondering if we have time to get to see Mendenhall Glacier or not? I'd like to be back on board before 2:00. Any advice or suggestions? Also has anyone done the Tracy Arm Fjord & Glacier Expedition with Carnival? If so how did it work? We were asked on the excursion page to email to do this...sadly they aren't taking booking for our cruise until January 2019...but I'm curious how do you pay for this? Onboard? Still trying to figure out what to do in other ports...any suggestions are appreciated!
  6. So hubby and I who live in the hot as hell swamp known as Florida will be hitting Alaska on June 25 of 2019 for our early 20th anniversary cruise. We do NOT own winter clothing as well we don't recognize that season here ROFL..so in June what will we need to pack for Alaska? We do not own coats, gloves, boots,etc. I can't imagine we'll need anything heavy..am I wrong? Thanks in advance!
