  1. We (also in our 40's) are on this cruise too! We leave Friday for our land tour. Can't wait for the Hubbard Glacier excursion. Hopefully the weather and ice cooperates. See you on board.

    hubbard glacier

    We are booked on this excursion August 15th, on Princess, it hasn't been canceled yet.
  3. I paid the same price pre-cruise. There was an "ad" showing in my personalizer. I would call or keep checking!
  4. I was able to purchase Medallion.net last week for my cruise on the Coral in August. There was a special in my personalizer for $59.99. I would just keep checking!
  5. How close is the actual menu to the sample menu on the Princess website? We have a specialty dining credit but my DH is ridiculously picky about food. Half the time he looks at the menu for the MDR and decides the buffet or pizza is the only option 🙄. I haven't been able to find any pictures of the "new" menu online.
  6. We were there last night (8/14). They are just getting started, this was only the 3rd week. There was a DJ and a band. Several food stands. Hair braiding and face painting. A few vendors with local stuff. Kids games. It was nice. The frozen lemonade was fresh squeezed and perfect for a hot and steamy night. Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  7. Were you nervous at all about getting back to the ship? I was thinking of going to St George on my last day too but was nervous about being so far away from port. Other option would be to go to the shops but then I would miss St George all together. We went to St. George our last day and had plenty of time. If you make sure you are on the free NCL ferry the ship will wait. Public transportation they won't.
  8. Thanks! It’s definitely not easy. Some places are easy to figure our. Alaska is a little more of a challenge! Sent from my iPad using Forums
  9. Hi everyone. We have a friend traveling with us that has Crohn's disease. Obviously, her biggest concern is the availability of a restroom everywhere we travel too. Alaska is causing her some stress. Do any of these boats have a bathroom? I'm sure we will be calling anyone we book with to be sure. I would hate for her to miss out on so many great adventures!

    Night Fishing

    My DH and Brother in law are thinking about a night fishing excursion. NCL does offer one but does anyone know of a private one? We are on the Dawn and in port Sunday and Monday night.
  11. I think the internet package is subjective. Last year I didn’t use my 250 minutes. We are going again this year and I’m taking two online grad courses and probably will use it all.. and then some. We loved the martini bar and Bimini bar. Be nice (friendly) to the bartenders and it goes a long way. You’ll be amazed at the behavior of some. Have fun! Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  12. Last year we were off the ship, and at our favorite breakfast place in Weymouth, by 9:15 am!
  13. So we booked Boston to Bermuda in August. Alaska in 2019! At least I have a suite this summer. Thanks everyone!
  14. Thank you all for your thoughtful suggestions! I think I will check with HAL about air-fair costs and go from there.
  15. Roy we've done both of these and LOVED them. We are considering them for this summer too because they are so quick and easy.
  16. Thanks for your replies. We definitely need a vacation (Alaska or otherwise). We are coming from Boston and the flights to Anchorage were about $700 per person:o:o, one way, last night. That's what made me nervous.
  17. We were planning on going to Alaska next summer (2019) however we are considering moving it up to August 2018. We were the primary care givers for our parents but , unfortunately, lost all 3 as of last week and have an abundance of free time once the school year ends. This will be my 9th cruise and my concerns are less about cabins and ships and more about excursions, hotels and flights. There are plenty of cabins left on the sailing we are looking at. Do you think booking now instead of for 2019 would be a mistake? I usually private excursions instead of through the ship and I'm worried the good ones will be gone. We are probably going to do the land portion on our own as well. Any thoughts and advice would be welcome!
