  1. I got the same offer, but no $100 casino money. You have to pay $100 per person at time of booking and the casino will give it back when you sail! If you cancel the cruise p, you loose it.
  2. From what I read the old count down clock is embedded in my signature. I can’t figure out how to delete it?
  3. Anyone else see Carnival leaving Tampa last evening? I couldn’t see the name of which ship it was. I seen it going under the Skyway Bridge. Curious where it was going.
  4. Thanks, we are on the 4 night leaving Feb 3rd, so I’ll assume it will be the same, day 2

    Melia Day Pass

    Looking for information about day pass at Melia. There are 7 ships in port the day we are there. Hoping to escape the crowds a bit. How was the food and other info would be appreciated. (I couldn’t figure out how to search on this site, so started a new topic)
  6. There are 6 of us. Should each of us choose My Time Dining for a particular time? How do we indicate we want to sit together?
  7. Are any of these hotels reasonable for the parking? Homewood Suites was pretty pricey.
  8. Does anyone know if they play bingo on the Mariner perfect Day Cruises?
  9. We took Holland on a 15 day land sea cruise. I absolutely loved the time in Dawson City and Whitehorse. They flew us from Fairbanks to Dawson. The port times were long as well as the stays on land. Some of the port times on Princess get in at 6 am. I am not a morning person. Couldn’t see going on excursions at 6:30 am! I think Holland’s regular rooms on board are a nice size with a couch and bathtub.
  10. We did land first starting in Anchorage, 3 days Denali, 1 Fairbanks, 3 days Dawson City (my favorite) 1 day Whitehorse, 3 days Skagway and then cruise 4 days.
  11. Did you book the Misty Fjords & Wilderness Explorer with Allen Marine through Holland? Thanks for the review. We are looking at the Holland 14 Day Explorer cruise. We have done a land and sea before to the Yukon and really enjoyed that.
  12. Do you think there will be more deals after Explore 4, besides a price drop?
  13. on other cruise lines you chose the bottle choice at dinner in dining room. You took the bottle with you. I wish they’d deliver them all to the room. You might be able to go to a bar and get one of your bottles?
  14. I am having trouble too figuring out what to do. We did a 15 day land/sea tour that went up to Dawson. Beforehand we rented a car in Anchorage and spent 4 days in Homer. It was our 4th trip, but 3 times was for work and based in Anchorage so we toured within 200 mile radius several times. On the our land and sea tour only 4 days was cruising. On land food was very expensive. Sometimes, depending on excursions, we were first eating dinner at 10 pm. The only reason I would do a land sea is to go to the Yukon and Dawson City. So much fun there. I am looking at Holland’s 14 day sea only that goes to some new ports like Valdez and Haines. Since we like exploring on our own, we could rent a car in some ports. Unfortunately, It is round trip from Vancouver which will not allow us extra time on our own in Alaska.
  15. Yes, I agree. Love using the Princess website. I use Expedia and other cruise sites to see HALs cruise schedules.
  16. There is a cruise consultant from HAL that phones me. I figured she’d just give me the deal I see on line. I am used to doing my own bookings but just for the 7 day Caribbean or Northeast cruises. Doesn’t help that the HAL website is so user unfriendly.
  17. I am looking at the 14 day GreatAlaskan Explorer for 2020. When I start comparing Holland’s on line price with third party prices, Holland is higher. Also, more incentives with 3rd parties.
  18. The new 14 day explorer on Holland will be stopping in Valdez. Any ideas, besides fishing, what to do there?
  19. Thanks for the tip. I also wanted to go to Sitka. I will check out the NCL cruise.
  20. Just when we were ready to book this cruise for 2020 Holland changed their itinerary. I don’t see any of their cruises going to Kodiak. Also, I don’t see any one way cruises.
