We did it with Uniworld and it was a highlight. Well worth doing if you enjoy Mozart. The venue is lovely, and the music was exceptional.

We just returned from a wonderful Uniworld cruise, and guests were indeed asked not to wear jeans to dinner. No one would have been kicked out or denied entry I don't think, but certainly a nice pair...

We boarded as you exited! Amsterdam to Basel on the splendid SS Antoinette. Lovely to see your pictures, and I suspect if we compared, we'd have 90% of the same ones. :)

We did discover it...

We have just returned from our second river cruise with Uniworld and can recommend them with highest compliments. Excellent food, thoughtful and informative shore excursions, and staff that...

I don't know anything at all about cruise ship design. But she does, and she's got intimate knowledge of what's been done and why when it comes to the Magic, so..... :D

I won't comment on your last sentence (though I could; I probably know all the same bloggers you say you know), but I will say that I'm afraid your friend was...shall we say...mistaken. It is...

We were on the Magic this weekend and interviewed Lysa Migliorati, the Disney Imagineer who was fielding technical questions during a media session, and she addressed the issue of the "duck tail".

IF that's true, so be it. However, it makes very little sense since there was a huge amount of coverage from print media, from news stations, from bloggers, and from guests. There is no way on god's...

We were on the Magic this weekend and at no time were we told not to post pics or comments on social media. In fact, we were encouraged to do so (my husband and I are both with the media). Wifi...

Depends on when and where you're going. We saw bears near Mendenhall Glacier and in Haines, but it's 'luck of the day' there. Anan River in Wrangell is pretty much guaranteed when the salmon are...

If you want this to be your dream trip to Alaska, with the focus on scenery and wildlife, you absolutely MUST look at Un-Cruise Adventures. We've been to Alaska on big ships, and just finished a trip...

Just back on Sept 2, went to Juneau, Skagway, Haines, Glacier Bay, Ketchikan, Petersburg, Wrangell, Friday Harbor, and never saw a single mosquito.

We did the Dog Sled Summer Camp in Juneau and really enjoyed it. I would think it would be pretty terrific anywhere (it wasn't so much the location as the sledding and the dogs that was great), if...

Just chiming in to say I'm so sorry for those of you affected by this. Very disappointing. Hopefully the refund and credit will result in the perfect make-up cruise for you.

Just so sorry this...

We absolutely loved the Summer Dog Sled Camp. Something we can't do anywhere else, so it was really special. And the puppy-cuddling time was just delightful.

I guess I'd decide based on whether...

Will be there next week. Absolutely delighted to see your post and know we're likely to see whales. What a treat!

Like you, we absolutely loved our POA cruise. Would do it again in a heartbeat.

We spent the day enjoying the island and then boarded around 4pm-ish. Just a quick note about later boarding: they may be out of leis when you arrive, if that matters to you. They did scrounge up a...

We took heavy gloves and those thin ones (thinsulate type) and used them every day, but that was in late June. We used them mostly at night and in the morning, since you're on deck much later than...

We cruised the Danube/Eastern Europe with Uniworld last year and haven't stopped talking about it since. A truly exceptional experience, and one we would recommend without hesitation.

You don't HAVE to be on deck all the time if you want to relax. But you may also find that your time on deck IS relaxing. There's something very meditative about watching the scenery go by, even if...

We took my only-child teenage son to Alaska and he absolutely loved it. We were with HAL, and he spent most of his ship time in the teen club and all of his shore time with us. He was never bored...

We spent the morning on our balcony as we went through the locks, then spent the afternoon on deck on the way back through the locks. Both were terrific experiences.

No restrooms on any of the...

They're also all over the parking lots, at the shuttle stations, and even near the cruise terminal. There's no way to avoid them entirely.
