  1. I am right there with you! I have been dreaming about another cruise all day, as I stare out my window praying for everyone in the path of the Oregon fires. First time in a Level 2 evacuation situation. What I wouldn’t give to be cruising in Alaska right now! What a year this has been - stay safe everyone and hopefully we will all be cruising again soon!
  2. Our Pacific Coastal scheduled for 4/25 was cancelled by HAL on 3/30. Same day we contacted our TA who requested a refund. Full refund hit my credit card today including the $100 deposit we had paid many months earlier. Was able to get credits previously for airfare, so we are whole again. Took awhile, but we finally got it. It has given me hope to see the refund updates, so thought I would add our experience. Can’t wait till we can sail again. Hope all of you are staying well. Paula
  3. We do this cruise yearly - love it! Have only had mildly rough seas a time or two - it didn’t cause any issue for us. Astoria - charming little community - some great seafood and breweries. I am probably biased - we plan to retire to that area in the next few years! Was just my mom and I a few years ago - my husband drove to Astoria to spend the day with us! No troubles crossing the bar for us. It can be terrible to cross in a small pleasure craft. The bar pilots are amazing and keep a pretty tight reign on who crosses and when. Never had any trouble.

  4. We were onboard NA, on our aft balcony on deck 5 watching as the Oosterdam maneuvered into place. We kept telling each other “there is no way she isn’t going to hit us” - then she hit us. Was quite a jolt - thankfully it doesn’t seem anyone was injured.
