    Cool Cruiser
  1. First Alaska cruise... we want to see Glacier and Whales so we are comparing... Mendenhall glacier and Whale Quest (says they go to Visitors center for an hour then on catamaran for whales) vs. Alaska's Whales and Mendenhall Glacier Trail ( says guided forest hike then boat for whales but limited to 20 people) Same price . We really would like to walk to Nugget Water Fall but it doesn't mention this in either one. Usually when people discuss the center it doesn't seem like an hour is enough to make it to the WAterfall. Anyone can clarify this for us or have suggestions for other tours? In Skagway ... its the best deal with the sled dogs?
  2. Buffet close sounds really good for quick breakfast except I'm guessing they don't do the made to order omelets in back? those are in middle buffet line? Thanks everyone!!! Photo helps too! Will we have bunks on walls in R740? There are just 2 of us.
  3. Thank you so very much crystalspin! This is exactly what we need!
  4. Does anyone know where the made to order omelets would be on the Ruby? We live for those in the mornings!
  5. Thank you so much everyone! I feel so much better. We did price the forward cabins on Lido ( again saw the hint here) but they were quite a bit extra $$ so we decided aft one might work ok. Plaza is usually the type of deck we book on and we liked being up a bit higher last cruise. If anyone has other Alaska/Ruby hints/tips we would love to hear them! Trying to look at excursions already..... So excited for Alaska! but very different from our usual Caribbean cruises.
  6. We just booked our first cruise with Princess on Ruby to Alaska(have cruised before). We needed an interior room price but really want the best room to be able to see all the outside scenery without having to stand in the cold for long. We booked R740 back by the aft pool per someone's recommendation that it would be easy to get out quickly to get to a deck to see out. But now as I look it will be under the Cafe Caribe. Did we make a mistake? Will that and back pool be noisy? When do they serve food? breakfast or just late pizza? We usually sleep from midnight to 8 am.
