  1. Yes. Nice looking jeans with a nice shirt are completely acceptable though many prefer to dress up more.
  2. In Skagway we took tour SGY220 - Bennet Lake and Yukon Adventure. It included both highway and rail, fully narrated. It took the full day so we didn’t get to see much of Skagway but the scenery was breathtaking. If you take this tour, bring snacks!! You get a fairly late lunch and we were all quite peckish!! if you want only half a day with 80% of the scenery, I’d recommend SGY225 White Pass Rail and Klondike Highway. That will give you gorgeous scenery and time in Skagway.
  3. We like the bigger ships and so far we’ve had no problems going the advertised route. It’s been beautiful! We’ve been through the glacier bays, to Skagway, and today we’re in Juneau. Really anywhere outside on the higher decks is great. Also up there there is narration along the scenic parts. We haven’t been to any yet. The internet has been good for me but some of my family members have had problems. Usually it’s okay if you’re not trying to stream anything. We went up to the Yukon through the White Pass Summit and back by train. It was a very long but beautifully scenic day. If you don’t need to see the Yukon on your bucket list, I’d say go anywhere from Skagway that goes as far as BC. That’s where the beautiful scenery really begins! We’re only in our second port now.
  4. Ours this week are/were on Sunday and Wednesday (today).
  5. We are on the Royal Princess and last night was the first formal night. My husband wore nice jeans and a nice button down striped shirt. He couldn’t find the tie he packed and we don’t do jackets. It was no problem at all. I even saw a man in the dining room with a completely casual T-shirt. Most dress quite nicely but nothing special is required.
  6. My husband and I are relatively new cruisers. We are currently on the Royal Princess on a southbound sailing from Whittier to Vancouver. I just wanted to say that having a balcony on the port side is AMAZING!! From our room we can see all the gorgeous scenery all day long (not that we’re in the cabin all day)! Yesterday we traveled through a bay to see Hubbard’s Glacier. It was really cool to see all the other people out on their balconies admiring the view and taking pictures! These pictures are all taken from our balcony.
  7. I will be getting on this ship when it arrives in Whittier. This news is so terrible. I'm so sorry for the many people affected by this tragedy!
  8. So do we! I can’t wait! Heading south on the Royal from Wittier.
  9. We were recently on the Regal and had a mini suite on deck 14. We had R228. We loved it. Great location, quiet and comfortable.
  10. I booked a cruise about 4 hours ago online and got the $1.00 deposit. It didn't say anything about it on the website but only charged me $1 each when I got to that stage of booking.
  11. I have 2 teenagers who have their own room so it's a different booking from me. They haven't cruised before. How do I find their account so I can start adding excursions and such?
  12. Thank you all so much for your input. It's very helpful and appreciated!
  13. I'm looking at booking an Alaska cruise in May 2019 and until Nov. 19 I can get the 3 for free deal. What I'm wondering is do they just put the price up higher when they do a deal like this? If I wait until after this deal is over, is it likely the price will drop by several hundred dollars? I figure that 3 for free will save me around $300 in costs.
