  1. I don't believe Apex has actually sailed yet due to the pandemic.
  2. OK, so the CDC wouldn't have stopped the cruise, but Maine's 14 day quarantine should have.
  3. Yes, the cruise from San Juan might be cheaper, but its because people need to get to San Juan to get to the ship.....
  4. Unfortunately, lunch in the MDR on port days has gone away from just about all cruise lines. Just not enough "business". I for one miss it. Carnival has their sea day brunch in lieu of both breakfast and lunch on sea days. However, on longer cruises where there could be multiple sea days in a row, they will alternate the brunch with a traditional breakfast and lunch. I don't remember the lunch menu being something to write home about.
  5. Does your cruise go to Glacier Bay? You might not need the additional Tracy Arm excursion. My guess is that your cruise line might offer one that works with your times if you really want to do it. And while I hate to be all doom and gloom, you might want some plan Bs. With no cruises this year, a lot of the providers are really hurting, and the landscape might look a lot different next year. Really, you can't go wrong with anything you do. When I went a few years ago (I'm really due to go again), in Ketchikan we did a boat tour that we saw Eagles and Totems. In Juneau, we took a bus to/from Mendenhall Glacier and did the visitor center. Considered doing the tram, but it was extremely foggy. In Skagway, we did a train/bus combo up to Carcross. With the exception of Juneau, we did ship tours. I would have enjoyed a whale watching tour, but my wife gets seasick on the smaller boats. Fortunately, she did ok on the boat in Ketchikan. From what I recall, Ketchikan can be walked (Creek Street I believe) and is near the port. Also a small walk from the port in Juneau is the downtown area. Again, it really all depends on what you want to do. Another thing to consider, after all the touring you are doing precruise, you don't want to end up on the cruise all exhausted. Looking at Glaciers are great (some of my favorite pics are of the blue ice we saw on the way to Dawes Glacier (couldn't get into Tracy Arm). But, unless you happen to catch on calving, at some point, they all start to look alike. If you are going to do the 26 Glaciers tour before even getting on the ship, do you really want to do another glacier excursion?
  6. I think the company that is mainly at SEATAC is Silla (or Stilla, something like that). I would contact them. Of course, hopefully they don't fold like SuperShuttle did.
  7. I believe they are looking for protection if something happens to Princess or to one of their travel providers.
  8. My understanding is that its not an issue to do a cabin crawl in those areas. Just can't go to the specific areas (Havana area, family lounge).
  9. I'm not saying that Carnival shouldn't fix their systems, I'm just telling the OP not to worry about the notice.
  10. I have no issue with Texas laws. It is within their rights to regulate alcohol sales, etc. I just know I won't be buying any duty free liquor on a cruise out of Galveston, especially if I'm going straight to the airport from the pier.
  11. Really no way to predict which way the ship will be facing.
  12. Don't worry about it. The systems just haven't caught up to each other.
  13. Yes, and Texas is the only state that collects tax on duty free liquor brought back at the pier, whether or not it is staying in Texas.

    In all honesty, I would expand your search for a cruise that goes to Glacier Bay. At this time, RCI doesn't.
