  1. We did it in Cabo and had a super fun time! They teach you how to make six different salsas, drink various margaritas, and learn how to Salsa Dance! One of our most fun excursions! Cha-CHING!
  2. We are doing this in January 2020 also. Disembarking from Celebrity Edge to the HAL Nieuw Statendam. Figured we would ask for the latest time to disembark and probably walk over to the HAL terminal. Seems they don't embark as early as Celebrity does. I've actually seen a couple reviews of the Nieuw Statendam where other cruisers went from the Edge to the Statendam or vice versa. Cha-CHING
  3. Is the sale for Specialty Dining reservations also? TIA. Cha-CHING!
  4. Wondering if there will be a special MDR menu one night? Lobster? Prime Rib? Do you know which night that will be? I'm wanting to book specialty restaurants but don't want to book on a special menu in the MDR. Thanks for your help! Cha-CHING!
  5. I received an email from them last week stating that the reservation is "too far out" and I will have to rebook in September. I believe it is because the rates will be increasing and they couldn't give me those good rates. Ugh! I will try again in September. Cha-CHING!
  6. Thanks for the information about Value Trips not confirming your reservation quickly. I will call the Hyatt Place to confirm. I'm wondering if I would be able to add an extra night at the same price quoted through Value Trips. Anyone have experience with this? Thanks for your help!
  7. I'm wondering if I can use the free 40,000 miles from getting this credit card for a flight from Anchorage to Phoenix? The application says something about the 48 contiguous states. I don't want to get it if I can't use it for my Alaska trip. Thanks in advance! Cha-CHING!
  8. CruisingJodi: We are planning a DIY after our cruise next summer on the Millenium. I noticed you took the Denali BackCountry Adventure. I'm wondering if you had to do this again, if you would still book this tour through Denali? We would like to do some hiking in the park also. We will be in the area for 3 days. I know many people take the Hop On Hop Off Bus because it is less expensive, but it looks like you learned alot from the narrated bus tour. I wish we wouldn't have made our cabin reservations so early, which are non-refundable because we got a TourSaver Book and could have had a better deal elsewhere. You did a great job on your review and it helped us to play our DIY. Thank you! Cha=CHING!
  9. What in the heck did they do to this site? Can't even find our Roll Call any more! UGH! This is a nightmare! Cha-CHING!
  10. Thinking about using AirBNB next June for our cruise on the Millie. We've stayed at the Pan Pacific three times, but it is way too pricey for our budgets this time. Has anyone used AirBNB or VRBO? Prices are so much more reasonable. Thanks! Cha-CHING!!!
  11. In Aruba, we did a tour with Sonny Binns Tours. Absolutely excellent!!! We had been to Aruba before, and did the Trikes, which was so much fun. We also took the FREE trolley which takes you around the downtown area. It was a pleasure. In Bonaire this year, we did the Bonaire Cruisers Golf Carts for the day and went all over the island. You can take your snorkeling gear and go in from the shore in many places. We had done the Woodwind Snorkeling the other time we were there. Absolutely fantastic. Hope you have a fantastic time on your cruise! Cha-CHING!
  12. We went the last week of August, first week of September. We hiked at Mendenhall Glacier and saw a mother bear with her cubs. Weather was great! Only one day of rain and that was in Ketchikan!
  13. So, if I want a completely smoke-free ship, which ones should I choose? That's why we haven't been back to HAL in years. My husband is highly allergic and suffers greatly with even second hand smoke or rooms that smell smoky. It looks like the Eurodam might work for us. I see the policies above, but even the smoking areas are on portside on some ships, and starboard on others. Very confusing to me. Safer to continue on Celebrity but HAL offers some itineraries that we would really enjoy. We like to have a Balcony cabin and it looks like we would have to be very careful when choosing a smoke-free cabin depending on the ship. HoHum. Sorry HAL is still having these issues with smoking. Cha-CHING!
  14. Thanks for the report. Can you possibly find another link to the San Diego Port? This one doesn't work for me. The one with the: live6.truelook.com one. Westerdam -- San Diego,California 7:00 AM - 5:00 PM Webcam: http://live6.truelook.com/face/newfa...imagemap.y=129 Webcam: http://www.sundiegolive.com/ Do you have a webcam for the LA San Pedro port? Thanks so much! CHA-CHING!!
