  1. We will be anxiously awaiting any news! Thank you!
  2. Thanks Steve! That puts my mind at ease. It seems so strange that it never comes up in the quote and purchase and isn't even identified in the policy itself if it were a requirement. And I spent quite a lot of time online and couldn't find much. When I saw this section about travel insurance I took a chance that I could get an answer. I really do appreciate your time.
  3. I currently have 2 family trips planned and have purchased policies through Travel Guard (one independent and one cruise). They were each purchased within the 15 days period after initial booking so we are eligible for the pre-existing condition waivers. I also purchased "cancel for any reason" coverage (50% coverage). I have purchased several trip insurance policies through the years but have have never had a claim. I recently was looking through the FAQ's on the Travel Guard website and ran across this: Can I put non-family members on my plan? Travelers on a sin
  4. We were in cabin 11218 in January 2020 and loved the location. Your cabin 11808 is in the same are we were but on the other side of the ship. It was somewhat mid-ship so depending on which end of the ship we were headed we could shorten the walk by going to elevators in either direction. It was close to elevators, but not so close as to be annoyed by noise. There was no obstructed view. I think you will be happy.
  5. All 5 free at sea is back, plus 15% latitues member discount, plus extra latitudes points. Expires tonight. It save me a few hundred, plus received the other free at sea. Of course it depends when you booked but worth checking.
  6. We had a July 2021 Alaskan cruise planned but with all the uncertainty for next year we decided to cancel it and have planned an Alaskan land cruise only for July 2021 instead. I'm very excited because we loved our short land tour years ago and have always wanted a chance to return. Now will get to spend more time on land! I think the coronavirus will still be an issue next summer, but hoping that by travelling independently our trip will be less affected by it and won't be dictated by what happens with cruising. Most of the reservations I have made have generous cancellation policies and I
  7. That was supposed to be "$400 obc". Sent from my SM-T380 using Forums mobile app
  8. My price went down $1000 for our 2 cabins, but lose $400 once and it also looks like we lose the free at sea and get to choose 2 promos instead. I dont really care about free kids or the port credits but did like the internet package. Guess with a $600 savings I could purchase it and still save $. Sent from my SM-T380 using Forums mobile app
  9. Sorry for the misinformation. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G935A using Forums mobile app
  10. Husky, I get your point but when you are using points for your room and it includes breakfast then it is truly free for us. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G935A using Forums mobile app
  11. Thanks Glaciers. This is exactly the type of information I was looking for. 2 votes for Residence Inn. Keeping fingers crossed that we even get to go in 2021!
  12. Good point Scott as that is my ONLY reason not to choose it. Maybe I will book the Waterfront too just in case. Can always cancel later.
  13. We rented a car after our cruise and loved it! We spent one night in Seward and took the 6-hour Kenai Fjords boat tour (a highlight! - saw whales, dolphin, bears on land, etc.). The next day we drove to Denali. Yes, it was a long day but still took less time than the train and we could stop when/if we wanted along the way. We then stayed 2 nights in a B&B north of the Denali area. It was nice being away from the crowds after spending a week on the ship. We were able to go to local eateries for dinner instead of the cruise owned resorts. We took the park bus to Eilson - it sounds dreadf
  14. That's one vote for Residence Inn Downtown Convention Center! Yes, I totally understand the "free" breakfast may change. The whole trip could change depending on circumstances. Which is another reason I want to book with points - no penalty if we change plans! I already changed from a March caribbean cruise to this August Alaskan cruise. I wanted more data before having to make that final payment than I would have had with the March cruise having to pay final balance in November (and cruising not even starting again until nearly October, if then). I would love to stay in a private home, bu
  15. We will be cruising from Seattle in 2021 and will be staying for 2 nights pre-cruise. We are 2 60-year olds, with 2 30-somethings, and a teenager so will need 2 rooms or a 2-bedroom suite. We will fly in late Friday night and will have Saturday before our cruise to see a little of Seattle (Pike's Place, Waterfront, Space Needle, have a nice dinner somewhere, etc.). We have points we plan to use for Mariott or Hilton brands. I have narrowed it down to Hampton Inn Downtown (which is a few blocks north of Space Needle), Residence Inn Downtown/Lake Union, or these two near each other: Homewood S
