  1. Forgive this super basic question . . . we bought the Cheers package online. Do they still put stickers on your Sail and Sign card to show you have the package? If so, where should we go to get our stickers? Thanks!
  2. I don’t know the ins and outs, but these particular Carnival gift cards aren’t resold gift cards but are sold directly from Raise. There’s no discount on them (as is usually the case with resold cards), other than getting the Raise Cash back. And, since they are e-gift cards, you can use them immediately.
  3. I don't know if this has already been posted about here, but just in case . . . I just discovered that you can buy Carnival gift cards on the website raise.com. You get 10% back in "Raise Cash," which you can use to buy other gift cards on their site. The gift cards are e-gift cards, and you can specify the exact amount that you want to buy. It was super easy! Oh, and raise.com participates in Ebates - only 1% cash back as of now, but every little bit helps!
  4. I commonly sail Royal Caribbean, which often has sales on pre-cruise purchases, like drink packages, internet packages and shore excursions (and yes, I know that the "sale" price is often not much better than the original price). Does Carnival ever have sales on those types of items? If we, for example, buy the drink package now, and then a cheaper price becomes available, are we able to cancel the drink package for a refund, and then re-buy it at the lower price? Many thanks!
  5. I’m so sorry - I know this has been asked 100 times, but I’m having a horrible time searching the forums on the ship’s WiFi. We are on Radiance on the ultimate dining package. Are gratuities included, or should we tip as if we are paying full price? Or - are gratuities are included, but we should leave a little extra to be generous? Thanks!!!
  6. We are spending a day and a half in Vancouver before heading out on an Alaska cruise. We plan to use our credit card as much as we can, but I’d like to have a small amount of Canadian dollars for tipping and small purchases - maybe 50 Canadian dollars? What’s the best way to get Canadian dollars at a reasonable exchange rate? ATM? Thanks!
  7. Oops! Sorry for posting in the wrong forum!

  9. We are heading to Alaska next month! One of our stops is Icy Strait Point, where we plan to do a whale watching tour through Hoonah Whale Tours from 9:30am-1pm, and then do the Ziprider through Royal Caribbean at 2pm. We are not a group that does well skipping meals, so I'm looking for somewhere quick and near the pier to grab lunch in between our excursions. Any suggestions?
  10. Thanks! This worked great. Another friend also suggested to go to My Calendar and click "Details" from there, which worked too. So much easier than what I was doing before!
  11. I'm heading out on an Alaska cruise on Radiance next month. I booked my shore excursions ages ago, and have been periodically checking the prices on them, and rebooking when the prices have dropped. I went to check today, and NONE of the FOUR excursions that I've booked through RCI are showing up at all in the shore excursions list. They aren't showing as sold out (which I've seen for a handful of excursions), they just aren't showing up at all. Almost as if RCI doesn't want me to see them, and see if the price has dropped. Has anyone else had this experience recently? This is definitely a new development (if it is a development), as (like I mentioned), I've checked prices on these excursions many times over the last year since we booked the cruise.
  12. With such a low differential, is it not even worth our time to try to catch the tide that day? It’s tbe only day that’s even a possibility for us to catch it, unfortunately.
  13. @masterdrago, we've decided to drive, and trying to catch a glimpse of the bore tide is intriguing. Question that you may or may not be able to answer - the link you sent (thank you!) has a list of the "best" bore tides in 2019. Unfortunately, our date (June 21) isn't on that list, but it's just a few days off, so I'm hoping that we could still see the bore tide, it just won't be as dramatic? I've poked around all over online, but can't figure out how to figure out when the bore tide would be visible from Bird Point and Beluga Point on June 21. Any chance you could help me figure that out?
  14. We are cruising in Alaska in June, ending up in Seward. We've got a rental car and are driving from Seward to Anchorage before we fly out (at 6am - UGH) the next morning. Looking for a restaurant for our "grand finale" dinner that Friday night. We'll have our teen boys with us, so we are looking for good food (they are pretty adventurous eaters), but not "fine dining" (they will be happy if they don't have to dress up). Looking for great food (we love steaks and seafood, but will eat just about anything), and a good view, or a unique atmosphere, or something generally very "Alaska-y." Thanks for any suggestions! Edited to add: just realized we may make it to Anchorage in time for lunch, so lunch suggestions would be great too!
