  1. I agree with this, and I have done it in the past. When checking in, the agent asked whether the second person was coming and I just said he wasn’t able to come. No questions asked, and the taxes were refunded.
  2. I’ll be on the August 24th sailing, cruising solo. I have been on 6 prior Alaska cruises but am definitely looking forward to this one after 18+ months of not cruising. I will be watching for your experiences on this cruise and the differences since covid. Thanks for doing this! Nancy
  3. I’m sure others will say you can make it, but it’s nothing I would ever try. You would need to be at the airport at 7:40 AM and that would mean absolutely everything would need to go right.
  4. You should definitely be able to make the 1:40 PM flight. A taxi to SeaTac will take about 30 minutes in average traffic, maybe up to an hour if traffic is heavy, which is often the case. SeaTac is a very busy airport and lines for both check-in and security are notoriously long, so I would plan to be there 3 hours before the flight.
  5. I’m a picky eater, but I have done Chef’s table several times, all with a group of friends. The chef and waiters were very accommodating and prepared special versions of some of the dishes just for me. They were very considerate and understanding, and made sure to ask whether there were allergies or just items I don’t like to eat. All in all it was a good experience. Very elegant and classy, and worth the cost.
  6. SAS. I have used them many times in the past. To my knowledge they don’t pick up at hotels, but I take the hotel shuttle to the airport and SAS picks up there. Very reliable and reasonably priced.
  7. I had to try 3 times, but it finally worked. Thank you!!!!!
  8. I join others in recommending Glacier Bay as a must-see part of an Alaska cruise. I have done 6 Alaska cruise so far, on several different lines. The itineraries that included Glacier Bay were far more satisfying cruises than those that didn’t. An Alaska cruise is more about the scenery than the ship, so do yourself a favor and see Glacier Bay!
  9. Belize and Montego Bay for the same reasons as others have previously mentioned. If I were to go on a cruise that includes either of those ports, I would stay on the ship. I don’t feel safe in either of them.
  10. I have never heard of a waitlist for sold out categories. You might check with your PVP if you have one. I think you probably just need to keep checking back periodically to see whether one has opened up.
  11. Thanks for the good luck. I’ll post here and let you know what happens. I did try to push back and it was escalated to a supervisor, but they said there was nothing they could do because the revenue department had gone home for the day.
