I'm so glad that you posted this. I booked a cabin on deck 11 as well. We are a family of four traveling with my two sons, ages (by cruise time) 20 & 17. We live in Massachusetts. I can't wait to start planning our excursions. We plan to spend a couple days in Seattle before our cruise to get used to the time change.
Thank goodness I don't have to fly as far as both of you, Phoenix is far enough and surprisingly the airfares are not much different in cost than what Matt mentioned.

We are arriving in Seattle on the 12th, and staying at a hotel in Pioneer Square with some touring and a dinner at Ivar's for sure on the agenda. Should be interesting travelling for me with 3 girls, (wife and two 18 year old granddaughters). The granddaughters are both pretty active, so I am sure I will get "dragged" to various places, both in Seattle and along the cruise stops.

We have been tentative looking at the Mendenhall Glacier tour in Juneau, The Zip Line in Ketchican (for the 3 girls), and not quite sure about Skagway yet. Anyway it is great seeing fellow cruiser's here, and I look forward to more 'chatting'
