  1. You may be able to use the free Disney transfer back to the airport (just give them a flight number that leaves about 3 hours after the time you want to leave your hotel) and then purchase Royal transfers from the airport to the port. That should be a bus, similar to Disney's transfers. With the amount of traffic in the port Canaveral area, I wouldn't be comfortable walking just me from port to the other (even if Disney did let you buy a transfer when you're not cruising with them).
  2. I love my Travelon bag. (Although I must admit, while all the security features are wonderful, I think the best feature is that I can carry two 20 oz bottles in the pockets on the ends! ) https://www.ebags.com/product/travelon/ant-theft-classic-cross-body-bucket-bag/261878?productid=10607817
  3. We loved Misty Fjords!! Also, for Juneau, if the clouds are low, you probably won't want to do the Mt Roberts tram - you won't be able to see anything. If you can find a Mendenhall Glacier tour that doesn't include it, you can always walk up and do the tram very easily. It's right there at port.
  4. *my 3-in-1 coat (has a detachable inside layer and hood) *new travel space bags for packing all my cold weather gear together so that it takes up less space (just be aware that it will add weight to your checked back for flying) *a multi-usb charging port *a usb backup for the pictures on my phone
  5. Congrats on the deal!!! I added it to my room, too (Emerald, Sept '21). We normally don't drink package because we don't drink enough for the value - but the cost was low enough that we felt like while we may not quite drink the cost value, being able to pay it out and not having to find soda to lug on board made the difference worth while.
  6. As I get closer for time to start planning for my cruise next fall, I know I'll be here a lot! Thank you all (in advance) for your help!!
  7. Last Sunday we joined the line between 6:30 and 6:45 and it was already around the Main Dining room. I was distracted by the fight among passengers when we started moving (seriously - they called security over it), so I didn't notice what time we actually began leaving the ship. However, we were at the airport to check bags around 8.
  8. When we were in Boston last year on Anthem, the line for the HOHO near the port was 3-4 busses worth of people long. We had thought about booking, but after seeing the line, decided to Uber into town and walk the Freedom Trail (which was easy and really cool!) It may have been the time of day (we got off fairly quickly after the gangway opened), but just something to be aware of.
  9. We rented a car in St. John's and drove out to St. Andrews by-the-sea. It was a spectacular 45-60 drive and the town was lovely. We could see the difference in the Bay of Fundy tide from when we arrived and before we left about 3 1/2 hours later. If you go down to the light house, there are steps to the sea floor. It's a summer resort town - we were there about this time last year and there was hardly anyone there. Probably my favorite day from that cruise!
  10. I know it wasn't full menu. If I remember correctly, we received a couple of appetizers (including the guac) and your choice of one or two of the entrees - but it's been quite a while, so I may be misremembering. Sorry!
  11. Depending on where you're renting from, you may consider spending the little bit of money for a cab to pick up your car. For my family (admittedly out of shape), the hill/mountain that we had to go up and down to get to Enterprise was a rough start to our day. The car rental was absolutely worth it though. We went the other direction out to St. Andrews. No caves, but we could walk on the sea floor and got some stunning views of difference in the Bay with the tide going out.
  12. We thought the Guacamole/margarita tasting (under activities in the cruise planner) was a better deal than the dinner. That price includes a drink!
  13. Hello! I'm just starting to plan for my cruise next year out of Montreal, but I wanted to thank you for the wealth of information!!
  14. You may mention this later (I'm only on page 5 right now), but this is the BEST spot for stargazing at night! There are hardly any lights, so you can see a million stars.
