    Alaska Excursions on NCL Bliss

    I guess one good question about scooters...how do they fit in your cabin?? While only sailing twice, have had a balcony room both times, one regular and one mini-suite. Can't imagine where it would park while in room? Any advice on that??

    Kids club??

    We've only cruised via NCL and they have a wonderful kids club. Wondering if you have any information on kids club, especially for an 11 yr old, who is very grown up!!! Also any other tips to someone new to Holland??? We've sailed twice on NCL and enjoyed the "freestyle" cruising, anytime dining, etc. Thank you in advance!!! Michelle

    Alaska Excursions on NCL Bliss

    Do you have any idea on how to rent a scooter? Is that something you can have a travel agent do? Or can I do myself with cruise line? We usually book ourselves, but will consider other ideas for Mom!!!

    Vancouver BC flights after cruise???

    Thank you all for the wonderful information!!! My 1st cruise was booked through Vancouver and then we switched to Seattle. Mom was nervous about making connections, etc. My problem is dealing with limited vacation time, so trying to plan as little time off from work as possible and the cruise I was looking into leaves on a Monday. Think with my schedule, we should stick with Seattle. Again, Thank you for the great info!!! I appreciate any experiences you all can offer!!!!
  5. Hi all... We live in Washington state, but looking at a cruise to Alaska via Vancouver. Any experience from flying out of Vancouver after the ship docks?? Is an 11:30 flight to Seattle a stretch???? Trying to avoid the train to Seattle and timing would work for a flight home on the 11:30 flight out of Vancouver. Thank you all in advance!!! Michelle O

    Alaska Excursions on NCL Bliss

    We cruised the Jewel in 2015 in starboard balcony. From your comments above, would you say this is the best side for viewing new cities are you pull into/out of port? It was from our experience, but wanted to double check. My mom wants to go again, but getting older and may not do shore excursions this time, so want to make sure we've got the right side of ship balcony so if she sits on balcony while we do excursions, she can see the towns and what's going on, etc. Also, looking forward to reading you trip report, but from your comment about forward balcony...any thoughts for mom and walking to other locations on ship if in a forward cabin??? Thank you in advance!!! Michelle
  7. So excited for your trip report!!!! I have read and yes...read over again your previous trips!! Lucky enough, back in 2014 won via local radio station a trip...any where I wanted to go. We sailed NCL Jewel w/ daughter mom and I to Alaska. Yes, we saw and held puppies!!! Cruise bug hit HARD and sailed Jewel again in 2016 to Mexico w 14 family members to celebrate 80th birthday of my mom as well as 50th for me. Along the way there was a marriage proposal by my great nephew which was accepted and they are getting married in Sepptember!!! Next trip... the Pearl out of New Orleans spring break 2018 to western carribean!!! Can't wait to see where you go and do!! BTW... I live in Yakima!!! I know you live north of here, but what city exactly?? Love Wenatchee, Chelan area!!! Safe travels and Happy Anniversary wishes!!!!

    Harvest Cay Beachfront Villa Rental Question

    How far out do they allow you to book either one? We don't sail until April and not an option yet for excursions. Isn't that where you would book? Also, if anyone had a pool cabana, do you know how close to a rest room?

    NOLA Hotels

    We are flying into New Orleans the day before our cruise, which happens to be next Easter. Hotels and town seem to be very busy, so think I need to get hotel taken care of now!! Never been and wont have a whole lot of time but looking for suggestions for a great hotel that we might get to see a few things while there. Traveling with us will be our daughter (10) and my mom (81). Because of age, will probably taxi, etc to port regardless of how close hotel is. Thank you in advance!!!! Michelle

    NCL Pearl Aft Question

    I wish I had known about deck 8, I just booked both of those for our cruise next April. Is it bad enough, that you would recommend changing reservation?? My mom and I have always wanted to sail in an aft balcony and were so excited.

    Alaska - May 2018 and Glacier Bay?

    So if booking a balcony going to glacier bay, is there one side better? Went to Sawyer in May 2015 and we enjoyed the whole afternoon on our balcony, but also know that as far as we got to see glacier, then the ship turned so both sides could see. Just wondering if you need to know which side to book. Thank you!!!

    $50 Deposits

    Can you book with the $50 deposit and then at a later date change ships or dates??
  13. We are sailing on the Jewel to Mexico in Oct. I think I read somewhere you can't wear flip flops in main dining rooms or speciality restaurants?? I'm not by any means saying we are wanting to dine in shorts, etc, but I have some cute outfits that I wear with a very nice pair of flip flops. Anyone have any ideas on this?? Thanks in advance!!!
  14. Can't wait to see your trip report!!! I hope you and your daughter have an amazing trip and make some wonderful memories!!!! We sailed last year with my mom and my daughter who is 9 and Alaska has made a very memorable impression on me!!!! It's the trip of a lifetime!!!

    Restaurant reservations for table of 14

    We had the same problem, cruising with 14 family members and all with UDP. I called NCL and was told to email www.specialeventsjewel.com and rec'd response right away. She then asked what we were looking for...dates, times, how many in party, etc. Then once that email was sent, rec'd a response that they send off to the Jewel. Heard back within 48 hrs and have confirmations on all of our dining requests. Happy sailing!!!!I know for us, as a large family group, we can't wait to sail Oct. 2nd!!!
