  1. Also can you do us a favor and post all the things you are enjoying about your cruise and call attention to the things that NCL and the crew are doing well? Assuming you have an internet package.
  2. Sailed out of Smith Cove in May of this year. No problems embarking or debarking.
  3. In Skagway we have done a couple different variations on the trips to the Yukon Territory. I would recommend one of those. The different landscapes involved in the drive alone are worth the price of admission.
  4. I noticed that my birthday was wrong on my Mariner account so I e-mailed them after several days with no response I called the customer service number. Took them 5 seconds to correct the information. All is good now.
  5. Thanks so much for this. We sail on the Eurodam on May 11
  6. Happy Easter to you. Although that is weird for me to say while I'm preparing to preach a Good Friday service.
  7. I've been on the Pearl in one of the forward Owners Suites. It was right below the bridge and had a forward balcony as well as a side balcony. The forward balcony was great when the ship was moving slow and/or in port. You did not want to open the door to that balcony while underway at speed. It was an Alaska cruise so the forward balcony was incredible when we were in Glacier Bay.
  8. I believe it is because the pre-purchase price includes the service fee/gratuity while the on board price is without the fee/gratuity which will be added when you purchase it on board.
  9. I'm a member of the Sokol Blosser wine club and the Evolution Pinot Noir while being a perfectly drinkable wine is their least expensive and meant to be fun and approachable. It is certainly not worth $16 for a 5oz. pour. Looks like I'll be brining my own wine and paying corkage.
  10. Going on my first HAL cruise (all others have been NCL) in May. Notice that one of the Culinary Council members will actually be on the cruise and that here is a special dinner with them one of the evenings. Anyone ever taken advantage of this? The dinner itself is $89 a person and is with Ethan Stowell.
  11. This has been a great thread to follow. I too am a huge fan of breweries and since I live in Oregon there are no shortage of breweries to visit. If you ever make it out to the Portland area I'd be happy to suggest some places for you. In the meantime I'll try and friend you on untappd.
  12. Been to Alaska 4 times with NCL over the years and are going again in May 2019 for the first time with HAL. We will be on th Eurodam out of Seattle with Ketchikan, Juneau, and Sitka for Alaskan port stops, a day in Glacier Bay, and a brief stop in Victoria. NCL does similar routes out of Seattle (no Sitka, Skagway instead) and either Glacier Bay or the Tracy Arm with their mega ships. They also do one way runs between Vancouver and Seward with a midsized ship from the Jewell class. By 2020 I believe there will be other mega ships operating in the Alaska market if you really want to go big.
