Princess checked us in through the Port Valet program, supposedly 24 hours in advance. We didn't purchase internet on board, so we printed boarding passes at the airport. It was easy at a kiosk...

We walked past it a few times (day and night) on our route between Hyatt Place and the Seattle Center, where the Space Needle and museums are located. It never gave us any cause for concern, and we...

Thanks for the reminder to find, fill out and turn in the free valet luggage form ASAP, I've added it to my WHAT TO DO TODAY spreadsheet. It's full of phone and confirmation #s, excursion times, and...

I think you'll both be happy you have them! For me, wearing the Merrill's instead of packing them had to do more with the weight requirement, as I tend to over-pack!

We just returned on the Ruby, and were blessed with sunny weather all week. That was highly unusual, however, and we were prepared for rain from head to toe.

It's a good thing we can't get it at home. Anything that tastes THAT good can't be good for you, at least in large quantities! (No one asked the calorie content, but it tasted like a dessert!)

I really appreciate all of this detailed information. I'll try to remember to "go left", but will probably be one of those who are overwhelmed!

Thank you! It looks like twilight is at around 9:30. The Ruby is scheduled to dock at 7. Hopefully the scenic bus tour will get us to the gardens to enjoy some daylight.
