  1. We tend to stay in Houston the night before the cruise due to the rates in Galveston. The options are more plentiful and more economical!
  2. are junior suites non-refundable deposits?
  3. Check out @therealcarlospena on Instagram. He has a great video on his latest post.
  4. My husband and son had to do this on Ovation in May
  5. there were rides times daily on our May 24th cruise. My son and husband rode daily with low wait times. Our coldest day was in Seattle and they were both shivering in the wait line but water was warm when they were riding.
  6. Forgot to mention our shore excursions Juneau - private whale watching tour with Harv and Marv's. We had to book a private book since we had kids joining us (vendor restrictions). It was a great trip with Captain John and we were able to see 6 whales in 2.5 hours! Skagway - private tour to Yukon and dog sledding - great trip with Nichelle that brought along the road to Yukon/Emerald Lake with many scenic stops along the way. We were did the dog sledding experience at Caribou Crossing. Kids loved this experience. We stopped at Carcross on the way back for lunch at The Bistro. Total trip was 7 hours Victoria - took the water taxi from Fisherman's Wharf to Chinatown. We then walked downtown and back to the ship. We stopped at an irish pub (Irish Times) for lunch which was great.
  7. I was on the May 24th sailing. Here are some of my highlights: Embarkation - it was not ideal as it was the first Ovation sailing from Seattle. Luggage porters were not ready/prepared for the large number guests. We were late leaving Seattle due to the luggage still being loaded on the ship. This caused a late arrival into Juneau and long lines to exit. But we did stay later in Juneau to make up for the late arrival. Inside activities - inside activities like trivia, bumper cars, etc were packed! Not sure if it was due to Alaska sailing forcing people inside. Adventure Ocean - kids loved going here and rated it 10 out of 10. Shows - Two Funny Guys (headliner) was a hit for all in our party! Pixels was ok. We wished the Live, Love, Legs was kid appropriate as my daughter would have loved the costumes. My Time Dining - highly unorganized on the first day and they didn't have our reservations made online (even though we could see it in the App). We changed to Traditional Dining and had a great experience. Disembarkation - was a seamless exit off the ship as we did self-disembark. My in-laws did the Port Valet and their luggage made it back to our home with no issues! Let me know if there are other questions!!! Loved our trip!
  8. We had a great time. It was our kids first cruise and they are addicted for life! The first day was disappointing with MTD not having our reservations we made online and taking almost an hour to get our food. We switched to traditional dining for the 2nd night and had an amazing waitstaff with Ronald and Gerwina in Chic. The food quality was on par with previous cruises. The horseradish salmon was a nice alternative daily when the rotating items were not ideal. They ran out of salmon by day 7 however.
  9. Eagerly anticipating this review, we board Ovation on May 24th in Seattle!
