  1. I don’t think I have any more photos to contribute. There is one other city on the list I have sailed from many times, but not from the area that would have been used by the small ships. EM
  2. The interesting thing is that the Shakespeare Glacier photo was taken in 2010. That time, I did a B2B on diamond Princess, Whittier/Vancouver/Whittier. Would never do it that way again... The date and time on that photo placed it in Whittier as well as my caption. On that trip, either coming to Whittier, or going back to Anchorage at the end the transfer topped at the ranger station at Portage Lake. The second pic was taken on a cruise on Coral Princess in 2013, B2B but this time Vancouver/Whittier/Vancouver. On the turnaround day in Whittier, we took the tour to Anchorage. This time th
  3. The hotel charge is $14.50pp/day. The extra $7.85 is the bar service charge. We are not drinkers, so we are opting out of the AI package. EM
  4. Whittier The second of the original pics is Shakespeare Glacier. According to this topo map, you can see it from Whittier: https://alaska.guide/glacier/shakespeare-glacier
  5. you are correct about Whittier, but I believe all photos were taken from the deck of Diamond Princess prior to sailing…. EM
  6. I saw a suggestion on another board to purchase used from a rental company. EM
  7. By the letter of the guidelines, this is true. However, people are clever at getting around this with descriptive text, abbreviations, etc. And I suspect these are seldom reported. EM
  8. Now another that should not be too hard... I was sure thisport had already been shown, but maybe not.
  9. Yes, this is Hellesylt, not really visited, just to drop off guests for the overland tour to Geiranger.
  10. It appears that you are on a partial transit. Therefore, only excursions by Princess will be allowed. You will use the new locks (Aqua Clara) to lock up into Gatineau Lake. Those doing excursions will be tendered ashore to the yacht club to join your tours. The ship will then lock back out and dock in Colon (or Cristobal) where they will pick up those returning from excursions. EM
  11. Well, it’s either simple or complicated. They will have to have a cabin for four ( quad). For the kids to sleep in your cabin, you would also need a quad, unless you don’t do both at once…then a cabin for three would do. But it is a question as to whether you would be allowed to book a quad in triple for the two of you. And unless you book a mini suite, they would be in upper bunks above your bed. So, if you really want to sleep with the grands, trade cabins with their parents for the night. EM
  12. Cruise line? Portholes are much smaller and recessed. You get daylight but not much view. EM
  13. Click on your avatar or username. It will show you your posts. Em
  14. Okay, I suspect this will not be any trouble: Obviously, not the Caribbean... EM
  15. Yes, indeed. As I said, the others would be a giveaway... Also, googling this ferry would have led you here... Now I need to revisit the unfound ports list to see if there is any port I have missed... EM
  16. Fantasia class (Divina) was the first class to have Yacht Club. EM
  17. Oosterdam 2009. San Diego to Rome. 32 nights Carnival Dream 2009. Rome to NYC. 16 nights Celebrity Solstice 2010 FLL to Barcelona Celebrity Infinity 2013 San Diego to Harwich 27 nights. Love them. EM
  18. On my Armonia cruise, there were 1900 Americans and 900 Europeans. Roughly 1/3. EM
  19. Here are some others that probably won't help much, either. But most of the others are dead giveaway.
  20. Sorry, no. Here is another view: And a view of the town that is not the port, but the main tourist attraction:
  21. Well, they are both in the Caribbean...for the second one, I don’t believe the port is the tourist attraction. Which is why I don’t have any other pics of the port... EM
  22. Oh no! I can see I will be doing a lot of stairs and laps around the ship! EM
  23. Welcome to Cruise Critic. There is a thread on the second page titled Petra. Doing a search might bring up others.
