  1. We have been whale watching in Juneau in May of 2015 and had a great day! This year we are trying whale watching on a small boat in Icy Strait Point. From the research I have done it seems like those 2 places are great choices. Now I am reading that ISP may be having less whale activity than it had before. I will be following this thread to see which is better. Happy planning
  2. I also love my Sony a6000. Quickest auto focus on any camera I have ever used! Highly recommend it
  3. The evening attire you mention is absolutely appropriate for the MDR. I usually have my son wear Docker style pants and a polo and on evening chic nights Docker pants and a button down shirt a tie and jacket is not necessary. I have seen many people in polo shirts the entire time. You will be fine. Have a great cruise! Happy planning
  4. I cannot recommend Calabaza Sailing tour in Barbados highly enough, exceptional service, great food, just all in all a perfect day. Looking to go back just to do it again. Two thumbs up for Cosol in St Lucia as well. Happy Planning
  5. On any cruise (including X) that we have been on I have been cold at some point. I always pack a sweater just in case because I tend to get cold easily. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G935A using Forums mobile app
  6. Thanks for the great review. We are doing this same sailing June 2019. Looking forward to it Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G935A using Forums mobile app
  7. Would it be better to purchase tickets for the train through the cruiseline or direct from the railway website? The celebrity decription said one way by train then another one a tour bus. I am not certain if they have a round trip on the train only as the tour desciption states 20 mile trip on the train. The white pass website says it is 40 miles round trip. Can you not do a round trip on the train when using the cruiseline excursion? I hope I am not being confusing but I am uncertain of the best way to handle this excursion. Thanks for any help.

  8. I would love to stay longer but we are already coming in early to Vancouver and we have to get back home for work so we have to come home the day the cruise ends [emoji24][emoji24]. I did find a nonstop flight home that leaves at 8:30pm. I also found a tour/transfer that makes several stops on the way to Anchorage. It would get us to the airport at 4:30pm. Has anyone tried using Alaska Cruise Transfer ? Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G935A using Forums mobile app
  9. Thank you for the response. I will look at those options. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G935A using Forums mobile app
  10. Don't mean to highjack the thread, just looking for advice. We are doing a northbound cruise next June that starts in Vancouver and ends in Seward from Friday to Friday. We are leaving from Texas and have 3 choices of airport, since we must drive about 3 to 4 hours to reach any of them, Austin, San Antonio or Dallas, but we must leave and return to the same airport as our car will be parked there for the duration of the trip. I see we need some way to get from Seward to Anchorage. In your opinions what is the easiest way to do this transfer? I was trying to find a non stop out of Anchorage but I don't see any and if I wait until Saturday to leave prices are a bit higher. Just trying to figure out the best way to do the return. Last time we did a Seattle r/t cruise so it was easier to decide the flights. There are 4 adults in our party. Any advice would be appreciated. TIA Sent from my SM-T580 using Forums mobile app
  11. Agree. We stayed on board for the same reason.
  12. Thank you bUU for the feedback. Enjoy the rest of your cruise Sent from my SM-T580 using Forums mobile app
  13. Will be on this sailing next year. Was the Tracy Arm excursion worth the cost? Sent from my SM-T580 using Forums mobile app
  14. Have done 2 balconies and 2 insides. Either works for us I would probably not bother with a balcony to the Caribbean again we spent no time on it. Alaska was a different story we used the balcony often. Have a balcony booked for our upcoming 2nd Alaska cruise. If it means cruising vs not cruising we have no problem booking inside.
