  1. so awesome, and we're going to be directly across the ship from that cabin in just a little over 2 weeks from now. Last time we were in AK was sept 2019, very excited to be going back again
  2. After seeing some posts on a "Live from" thread on another board...and the people saying that the port was basically dead, with closed shops, and to not bother getting off the ship, I have to chime in. PLEASE....PLEASE! get off the ship!! support these communities, buy from the shops that are open, get snacks/meals at the restaurants and kiosks...don't go back to the ship for your 'lunch'. These communities, that depend on the tourist/cruise ship industry have been closed a lot longer than just a year. The last ships left at the end of the 2019 season...late sept early oct. Then the
  3. yep, we are too. you know it's been toooooooo long since your last cruise adventure when this is your entertainment. On the UP side....that'll be me in 3 weeks!!!
  4. get some agave straws (that A-Z website has em) they feel like the plastic but are fully compostable. no plastic involved.
  5. Ship is still there.... makes my heart happy to see that . And you know Juneau was thrilled today, people came back ! lol
  6. I'm going in 3 weeks, and can't wait. I know that the Alaskan peoples were impacted hard by the fact that the tourists and ships haven't been coming. I will be doing my best to support those locals when I visit the towns. Planning on my meals OFF the ship and doing excursions that help bolster the local economy. Did I say I CAN'T WAIT!!! so excited to be going back to Alaska
  7. My thoughts exactly! We're going on Majestic Princess the middle of August, and will be the only ship in port on our port days...gonna be great.
  8. looking at the maps, it's about 7 miles from Ward Cove to the Ferry terminal in Town. So, I'm sure NCL has plans for a shuttle service to/from town. It should be about an 8-10 min ride. The Ward Cove website says:: Our long-term vision is to create a world-class tourism destination in Southern Southeast Alaska that promotes the heritage and adventurous spirit of our region through an immersive experience in our lifestyle, history, and locale.
  9. lovely. thank you for sharing this. I'm going to be on the Majestic next month. Can't wait to be getting my dose of vitamin SEA again.
  10. Ensenada isn't considered, or covered, on that board :: Mexican Riviera Includes: Acapulco, Cabo San Lucas, Loreto, Manzanillo, Mazatlan, Pichilingue/La Paz, Puerto Vallarta, Topolobampo & Zihuatanejo/Ixtapa, Mexico
  11. Thank you so very much. this is exactly the info I needed. Now, is there any way you can get October here sooner?? lol
  12. The battleship USS Iowa, and the Los Angeles Maritime Museum are near the pier in LA, just a 10-15 min walk up the waterfront. anything farther, I'd definitely opt for a ship excursion. You don't want to tackle LA traffic on your own.
  13. For those of you who have done a Cali Coastal run...with a stop in Santa Barbara. I know this is a tender port, but exactly where to the tenders load/unload?? is it Stearns Wharf? or the small boat harbor just to the west(?) of the Wharf. AND, if it's the small harbor....how far is the actual walk to the wharf? My traveling companion (mother) will most likely either be using a walker or actually be in a wheel chair at the time, and we're trying to plan accordingly. Her walking distances are very limited right now due to an ongoing issue with her lower spine. TIA for an
  14. We use the Crowne Plaza. love their park&cruise plan. Shuttle to/from the pier was quick and efficient as well. Staying there again in January
  15. Love tagging along on your adventures, and thank you for sharing. Fun fact:: the Japanese word for sea urchin is Uni, and what is eaten is actually the gonads of the creature. I haven't tried any myself, but they say it's delicious.
