Hello Easyboy,

There was no thread for our date ... so I started one. Done that before. Hopefully others will join between now and next July.

My husband and I are going July 1!! We were just checking out the excursions and looking at the different drink packages. We are staying a couple of days in Seattle first. Coming from Minnesota. This board has been very helpful, lots of good idea so thanks everyone for that.

Have a great cruise. Did you post in the roll call board? That's where people go to find them.

If not, maybe the mods can move this?

Hi AF-1
We have completed 30 cruises and about 20 have been with active CC roll calls. It's not a biggie since we will have some family on this cruise. It does seem weird for zero activity. Yes indeed, we will have a wonderful time.

Thanks for stopping by!

Thanks! Just took a look and it appears that one has little activity. Guess that tells me about Alaskan cruises. LOL

We have a roll call for our September cruise on the Emerald and my friend just asked me why there is so little activity. In general, Alaska roll calls tend to be very quiet. Lots of new cruisers who haven't found Cruise Critic.

You are correct about quiet Alaska roll calls. In mid December I started a roll call for a July 2019 cruise tour and no one has posted anything there yet.

If no one posts to your RC, you can join another RC close to your date and bounce off ideas with those cruisers. Also look at posts on the Alaska Board very informative....

I'm sure happy we have family on this cruise. We are very social and love all the 'meet and greet' parties, etc. and the two threads for this cruise are both DEAD.

Oh well, such is life. :-)
