OK, you answered your own question. 125 days are needed between Platinum and Diamond. Not that separating since there are tens of thousands sailing. It's not that difficult to obtain, in these...

I find some people, simply shoot themselves in the foot, when they proclaim they are going to eliminate an entire line due to ONE trip. Same with the "assumptions" some make, that simply not...

Isn't there an NCL contact phone number in the UK???

It's a one minute transaction. You give your latitudes number, and state you want to transfer them. And YOU giving the latitudes...

I don't agree the priority should be given to HAL and Princess (which I have sailed on multiple times in Alaska. NCL has also been there a long time and does a good job there too. And I certainly...

The Epic. this sailing had, an atypical additional market with Horizon cruises who don't/won't fly. For the past 5 years, every TA sailing on the Epic has had some late oversupply (I picked up...

this is terrible and certainly not the service requested. But- the dining rooms, are not set up for one large table and it will always be smaller ones. I believe there is only one table of 16, ...

this is inaccurate, with Carnival sailing out of Seattle, you have 2 days of open ocean, where I have seen people "sick". Round trip Seattle cruises are the least scenic and have the most open...

Yes, I agree, Crystal Light has a few flavors along with plain. You'll have access to water 24/7 BUT, please do not fill your container, directly from the spigots. Use a CLEAN glass and fill...

for me, this is a superior itinerary. Bonaire, is just superb for my snorkeling. :)

I'll be considering it, for late booking.

It can be all the way up to. and past boarding time. It's wide open as to "when".

This is NOT a good sign, the airline "couldn't tell you anything?". Baggage tags are scanned at every move. did they say it made it to Rome? Did you ask where it was last scanned?

Vancouver can really back up on cruise ship days. Even with a domestic flight- I would ONLY consider self walk off, and then just walking yourself over to the Sky train. Will be the most...

The cruise line will offer bus and probably train transfers. Independent is a taxi, Park Connection bus, plus a few orhter independents, and a one way Hertz car rental.

Think carefully...

Where are you the night before the cruise? What is your method of transport. finally what are your inclusions with your tour? These need to be known to give you any answer.

But you most...

As I mentioned, Kenai Fjords tours.

There are only 2 large vendors in Seward. Kenai Fjords tours and Major Marine. Their 6 hour tour is essentially the same. I mentioned, the chicken...

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.

I've just called and found out, what times are available, and simply walk over to the visitor center, to their shuttle. You can also, book right at the visitor center. I'd suggest you find out...

yes, I have gone to salmon bakes, in Skagway, Juneau, Fairbanks, Seward.

I only do walk up as these are mostly just covered outside areas, then I can add it, if I feel like it. :) Not the...

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...

Again=- as I mentioned, the only Victoria orca whale watching with a 6/7pm arrival, is going to have to be a ship tour- Which is a shortened tour. Time is everything with whale watches. ...
