  1. We have saved our beers from the bucket, brought them to the room and kept them on ice, and then brought them to another bar or the Lido the next day to enjoy. Enjoy the savings!!
  2. First, happy anniversary! Second, thanks so much for your wonderful travelogue of the cruise. We've been to Alaska 5 times (in June on the Maasdam for 21 days), so this brings back great memories. Your insights are always right on, and make for an enjoyable read. Hope the rest of the cruise is fantastic! Laura
  3. My DH and I were on the same cruise with jokerstef on the Maasdam. The Orange Party was on the same night that the ship had the Bar Hop. We did the Bar Hop and ended up in the Crow's Nest...after 4 drinks in 4 bars we were ready to party!! We didn't have anything orange, but the bar staff had given us orange beads and an orange glow stick, so we were ready for the party. It was a fun night and quite a few of the officers were up there enjoying the party also.
  4. We were on the Maasdam for 21 days to Alaska, May 28-June 18. I had followed your blog for the South Pacific trip, and found many helpful insights for our trip. Looking forward to following on your new adventure, and to hear who's still on board from our trip (I know Rachel Moreno, one of the EXC experts, was staying on for at least part of your cruise). Bon voyage, have a wonderful trip! Laura
  5. We were on the Maasdam in June - it was served on Hubbard Glacier day, on Deck 6 in the lower Atrium. On College Fjord day we also had seafood chowder served in the Atrium on Deck 6.
  6. Thanks for the cheery sendoff....can't believe it's finally here! We booked this itinerary as soon as we heard about it, in January 2018. Looking forward to our fifth trip to Alaska with lots of new ports!! Laura
  7. What a great thread! This brings back memories of my parents. My father's aunt (never married) called and said she had an opportunity to go to Japan - at the age of about 90! My father told her, "if you don't go while you're young when will you go!" So she went and had a wonderful time. Enjoy life while you can!!
  8. Safe travels, I really enjoy following along on your journeys. Enjoy!! Laura
  9. Copper, We'll be on the Maasdam on May 28th for one of the 21 day Alaskan EXC cruises - can't wait! Do you know who the captain will be? Thanks, hope to see you on another cruise some day!! Laura (and Bill)
  10. Roy, thanks so much for letting me follow along on your splendid journey. Since I'm still working, this length cruise is not possible right now - but your great narratives really makes it feel alive! We did cruise together once (unfortunately, I can't remember which cruise!) which makes these posts so much better. I'll be looking forward to your next adventure! Laura
  11. Thanks so much for the information - everything sounds wonderful! We'll be on the Alaskan trip at the end of May 2019, for 21 days, and are looking forward to more in-depth information. We've been to Alaska 4 times already, but hope that we can learn more about the land, people, wildlife and food on this exciting adventure! Laura
