  1. I meant MY cruise. In June which is going to Alaska. No where near Asia.
  2. I could have written this post myself. We are cruising in JUNE (yes June) to Alaska and every day my parents try to argue with me to cancel before we pay our final deposit. I have tried to educate them, I have tried to reason with them, I have reminded them our cruise is MONTHS away, I have even forcefully told them we (Me, hubby, and teen) will be going and they can choose to stay behind and miss their Alaska vacation. I find this hyped paranoia insane. They have a higher chance of getting the flu on a grocery store shopping cart or plane ride than on a cruise ship that is barley leaving the US. Washy washy friends.
  3. We were once stuck on a ship on disembarkation day for an additional 4 hours due to fog. This was a Disney cruise into Galveston. While it did not impact us as much since we are Texans, it really impacted a lot of people. I am now a huge advocate for leaving either late in the day or the day after you disembark. Seattle also has a great baggage program so they will take your luggage and you can experience the port for the day and not worry about missing an early flight.
  4. We sailed the week of Christmas on the Escape in the Haven last year and had zero issues with kids running amok in the pool or lounge area. It was actually almost a ghost town in the pool area so my teenager (gasp a child) and I sat in the loungers reading books for hours one day. We had food delivered. It was very relaxing. I would not base your decision on a few negative posts as my experience was the exact opposite.
  5. I was hoping to see reviews from others too as I am excited for SIX. However, you might download the soundtrack in advance of your cruise to see if you like it. It is the telling of the wives lives (deaths) from their perspective. We actually love the music and its a humorous sometimes crass interpretation of history. I'm actually wondering if they had to change some lyrics since it is pretty sexual in nature at times (Specifically referring to Henry's......"unit"....on a number of occasions). It wouldn't bother me, but it might upset some parents or young kids. Wonder if they will change the lyrics we have grown to enjoy, I hope not.
  6. If this is the case than we violated this rule A LOT! πŸ˜‰ We had absolutely no issue with bringing drinks back to our room.
  7. You will be fine. They know people have shows booked. Just show up a touch early (as there is almost always still a bit of a wait) and then let your waitstaff know about your show reservation.
  8. Meh, it was ok but I don't think I would do it again. Food was mediocre at best and the show was drawn out. I was ready to leave well before it was over.
  9. Just my personal observation. We were at a table with 2 unruly kids and it really impacted our night. There is no telling how your littles will respond (I have a teenager) so I get it. But this particular experience can be overwhelming for them. There is loud noises, fire, interaction with strangers in funny hats, and food being thrown.Sensory overload for some very young kids. Plus it can be a much LONGER dining experience. I would caution you to bring them as it may impact your experience or the experience of those around you. Plus you don't want your kids to have a stressful evening meal that would make bedtime a real joy πŸ˜‰
  10. We considered it and priced it out. However Uber Black was just as easy and less expensive. We had a luxury SUV and arranged it the night prior. No issues at all.
  11. My teenager packed one and the one on board was fine for both of us. Had no need to bring our own. Save the space for something else! πŸ™‚
  12. Any location will be nice, it just depends if you want relaxing or loud and exciting. Just let the waiter know at whatever venue you choose. We enjoyed Cagney's, but some people are expecting the best steak of their lives (in the middle of the ocean) πŸ˜‰ and its not that good but decent. For a nice quaint birthday dinner Le Bistro or the Haven restaurant would be relaxing casual.
  13. Yep you have to wait until closer to the date to make reservations. It will open up post that date.
  14. Agreed on the idea of being at the mercy of who you are seated with. We had a grumpy set of younger kids next to us that grumbled and whined the entire time. The daughter actually got annoyed when her parents would not let her have more shrimp and she started crying. We had a teenager with us and even SHE thought the kids were annoying and disrespectful. Really brought our experience down, but food was decent.
  15. We were the same way and we had 3. So I just booked for 4 and updated it once I got onsite to only 3. No issues at all, no fees. Book for 2 now, and reduce once on board.
