  1. ISP is by far the least commercialized of the ports. Not sure a 6 year old’s attention is going to be held for a full day anywhere, so I would opt for the half day option. Sent from my iPad using Forums
  2. Taquan Air did a nice job on our flight last week. 10 or 11 passengers on the plane. The only thing I missed was that we only got out on the float part of the plane when we landed on the lake- last time we went we actually walked in a beach at the lake. Sent from my iPad using Forums
  3. We were on the same cruise. I agree with your assessment of Moderno’s. While I have enjoyed it in the past the quality of both the food and the service was well below par. Cagney’s and the Teppanyaki Grill, on the other hand, were both excellent. We had a different view of the buffet. Had one situation where the Offucer was just plain rude (contrary to his opinion fajitas or chili con carne are NOT normal fillings for hard tacos). The carved turkey was good but the hamburgers on two occasions were just inedible. The grills out on deck for lunch provided a much better, and fresher, meal. Sent from my iPad using Forums
  4. 2nd Street has a lot of foodie places. I have seen lots of reviews, but don’t get down there often enough to make a recommendation. Sent from my iPad using Forums
  5. I live about 8 miles from Disneyland. I would not try to visit Disneyland and fly out the same day. If you are going to stay overnght this is very doable. You would need to make arrangements for your luggage, so maybe Super Shuttle can take you to your hotel room near Disneyland. Then drop off the luggage and head over. Be prepared for a LOT of people at Disneyland. That place is packed to the gills every day. Sent from my iPad using Forums
  6. Save some for next week! Sent from my iPad using Forums
  7. Sounds as if everyone else is as torn as I am, with a little lean to the balcony. One line has a $US difference of 1000 per person while the other is only about 200. It may come down to which line we choose. I like the balcony in Hawaii and Alaska #1, but did not need it in the Caribbean, New England or Pacific Coatal. Oh, to only have this type of problem in life..... Sent from my iPad using Forums
  8. We normally just go Oceanview but next summer is our 40th anniversary. Should we spend the money on a balcony on the NCL, or Princess, cruise we choose in June/July, or save it and spend the money on excursions? Sent from my iPad using Forums
  9. Have not done it myself but a relative who is very active thoroughly enjoyed doing a hike on the Mendenhall Glacier after helicoptering out there. He and his bride have pictures of them climbing ice walls and hopping over huge crevasses. Sent from my iPad using Forums
  10. Budget Queen pointed me to the fligtseeing 14 years ago through Cruise Critic. Whatever she recommends now I would listen to. We went over the Misty Fjords and landed on a lake and got out. Fabulous outing! Sent from my iPad using Forums
  11. Don’t know if you leave or end in Seward, but the best Wildlife viewing we have had in our two Alaska trips was the Kenai Fjords tour. It is about 4 hours, not booked through the ship so there is no markup, and we saw several different species. The highlight was the whale that we could smell the bad breath of......he/she breeched about 30 feet from the side of the boat. Sent from my iPad using Forums
  12. Several years ago on the Pride of America with our best friends Tom and Kathy. We went to Jefferson’s Bistro the first night and they served it as a buffet- a buffet with unlimited prime rib, crab, and beautiful desserts. On the same trip cruising past the Napali Coast. We have seen both sides of the Caribbean, the Western Med and Alaska but that was the most magnificent. Sent from my iPad using Forums
  13. We went on POA years ago and thoroughly enjoyed it. Would go again in a heartbeat. The itinerary was the highlight, but the ship was a better experience than any hotel. Sailing by the Napaali Coast was something I will always remember. Sent from my iPad using Forums
  14. We booked independently through Hoonah Travel Adventures. Will let you know in a couple of weeks how it went. Sent from my iPad using Forums
  15. We used Rome in Limo years ago and were very happy. Unless the laws were changed the information from the driver was plenty for our group of 10 that we cobbled together on CruiseCritic. Sent from my iPad using Forums
