There is a lot of uninformed, "recommendations" being given that are very naive based. A message board is not the place for medication advice. There ARE side effects possible with over the...

Not Wolfie, but, anyone who has done the Lake Bennett train has done, "both", trains. A reason to consider the Lake Bennett train is for the historic stop and ability to walk about, along...

Depends- vendors all will store luggage, but you could also drop at lodging, or the train station if using either.

In the past, the Princess Kenai Lodge also just ran a shuttle service to Seward. Is this still available? I'd suggest checking after they open for the season, calling directly. Depending on...

You will loose $50 non refundable. The rest of the deposit is has to be used within 2 years. Why pay before final payment? There isn't any reason to, in my opinion.

Yes there are guard rails. I've driven the summit during white outs, and 12 foot snow banks. So, have no clue- nor can I speculate if this drive is for you. Look further, and search -you should...

You have an older, international demographic mix with Europe sailings. Every cruise is different, and who knows (or cares) what others are on board or what they are doing??? :):)

I pick up a lot of these, solo, no supplement last minute deals. But I disagree, there are NOT a lot of them. And the deals in the most part are coming out later. Pure supply and demand. I...

You do NOT need any certificate for Platinum and above with the free laundry perk. It is per person. Simply write your status on the ticket.

It isn't that windy, but isn't wide, with some, just 2 lane drop off areas, pretty much most of the run through Alaska. It does open up some, in BC and Yukon, but remains tiered , so , no...
