sorry, I'm still a little excited. we stepped on board at exactly 12pm. After checking out the cabin and meeting our stewardess, proceeded to make ressies for every night at the Sterling. no problems...even got the same table, except for the last formal night.

Throughout the cruise we were overwhelmed with the service and attentiveness of the crew and wait staff. At the captains cocktail party we were offered cocktails at least 20 times, maybe more. Except for arriving a few minutes late in Juneau, we docked at precisely the appointed time at every port.

Every night in Sterling?.. is the 2 day limit gone?

Appearently that was not a problem. the concierge never skipped a beat when I requested the Sterling dining room for 6pm every night. Although I was prepared to make ressies in the other dining rooms, it wasnt necessary.

Welcome back! So what excursions did you take?

There has been a lot of talk about the dress for "Alaska Formal" nights. What was the norm on yours? Thanks!

Great to hear but I wonder why the flip flop.

momofcnb....on our cruise, formal night ran the usual gambet from tuxes to sports jackets and ties. Most of the ladies dressed up a bit more than the men. But then we enjoy that!

 

srphnx.....I couldn't say, but maybe it had something to do with all the recent unfavorable publicity. The powers that be, shall we say, don't want to "rock the boat" anymore than necessary? hmmm...
