  1. Favorite area for an OV balcony - deck 6, aft, back side of the Boardwalk. Easy walk to the coffee shop in the AM, and kids could easily run to the carousel. Buy the coffee card if you are a coffee drinker - make sure they dont double punch for large coffees (they should not) get to shows about 30 minutes (or more) before the doors open to standby. Make reservations for the aqua theater show on the first night it occurs - if it is cancelled you can still catch it later on. if you wait, you may miss it. Skating rink is small, and you want a good seat for that show.
  2. I saw it available on my sailing last Feb. not sure how popular it is.
  3. Wonderland - a unique experience, excellent food, great drinks! if you find yourself not liking the food, go to the windjammer when done (or have them bring you some "normal" food.). Regardless, its a great experience, and I actually liked the food.
  4. - Not necessary to have a balcony, but it is nice. If it was a deal breaker, I would be in the inside room to be on the ship. - Ship is less important then the itinerary. If doing this sailing more then one time in life, its a toss up. If it is a once in a lifetime trip - do the one way, ending in Alaska and then do the land portion. - Go to Seattle / Vancouver a few days early. Time adjustments. We go from the East coast so the 3 hours to Seattle and then 1-2 hours more on the cruise, it helps going a few days early (and Seattle is a fun town.) - IMO,
  5. Buy it. Well worth the price if you drink specialty coffees often. Last year on Symphony I printed out and had in my room all the terms and conditions as well as all pages on the website pertaining to it in the unlikely event that they told me they would punch more then one time for a large. I have heard of it happening to someone on a different ship and sailing, but never met anyone it happened to. I was prepared. One old post on here was what made me have that info at the ready - apparently they had told someone a large was 2 punches, so they returned the card and RCI refunded them. Me
  6. Juneau - rent a car from Avis - walking distance from port. Drive to Mendenhaul park. walk around on own, see the glacier, etc. then drive to town, have a nice dinner on the docks, go see the famous whale statue if you like. Skagway - rent a car from Affordable Car - have them leave it at the port for you. Drive up (need passports) to Canada / Yukon Territory (note, there is only one street to drive on - you would have to try to get lost - there are no turns). stop along the way, beautiful. Go up to Caraboo crossing, play with the sled dogs, go for a ride, have lunch, petting
