  1. 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!!!
  2. 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!
  3. Oops! Sorry for posting in the wrong forum!

  5. 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?
  6. 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!
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. @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?
  10. 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!
  11. @martincath, one other question - would we need a reservation at either Tap and Barrel or Cactus Club? Or would we be ok to just walk up? I'm guessing we will be eating on the early side, Vancouver time, but I'm also assuming that area may be busy with 3 cruise ships heading out the next morning. Thank you again!
  12. Does it make any sense to request an ocean view table when we make our reservations (we are doing the ultimate dining package, so we'll make our reservations onboard), or should we just ask when we check in?
  13. Do any of the specialty restaurants on Radiance have an ocean view?
  14. Everything I read about packing for Alaska mentions (a) layers, and (b) a good rain jacket. What rain jacket do you love for an Alaska cruise? I’ve got a North Face rain jacket, but it’s super light and more water resistant-ish than really water resistant or waterproof. Would love recommendations on (or links to!) specific jackets that you like! I’m looking for me (40-something female) as well as for my two teen (13 and 15) boys. Thanks!
