Loved reading your post!!

We just booked the bliss aug 2021. This will be our first Alaskan cruise. Any must do’s? In your opinion is the vibe worth it or skip? 

Skip the Vibe. There will be ample loungers on the main decks. The pool bar is normally not too busy and they are giving out hot soups on the pool deck (vs. frosty drinks). It will be cool for some, but folks will be out getting some sun. We're out in shorts in the cool weather, because it is warm for us. 


Must Dos: We sail Alaska every year (except this year). Next year we are (hopefully) on the Quantum of the Seas. We sit out while the ship is moving in the evenings and watch for sea life,,, lots of whales and dolphin. Have different clothes for different weather (glacier watching day will require a heavy coat, gloves, and a hat. Enjoy Alaska... in August, there should be chances to see a lot of whales and bears, but you need to get out of the tourist shops to see them. 


Post #374 on this thread states: The Vibe sold out this week. People showed up early to get a low boarding group number and racing through the ship. Temps in the low 50s. Cold, blustery days.
