  1. I had to cancel due to work conflicts and will sail on the Mariner on February 28, 2020 instead. Absolutely stoked. I think I'll do two days at Disney World before the cruise.
  2. I was just going to say that! Did this last time I went to a wedding. Hung it in the bathroom while showering and any wrinkles in the taffeta smoohed themselves out. Of course, they tell me cruise ship bathrooms are stinkier than hotel bathrooms, so there is that.
  3. I'm new to cruising and I was excited about knowing people on board (in as much as you can know people on the internet) as well as the meet and greets. The sailing I will go on has about three different threads under role calls and each has only one or two responses. My guess is that the breakdown of the roll call tool is the largest contributor of the confusion.
  4. We're doing a cruise tour. They fly us into alaska. After disembarking in Vancouver they take us to Seattle airport by motor coach.
  5. I hope I'm not sidetracking this conversation. I'm traveling in June with my uncle. In anticipation he opted to get a passport card in lieu of a passport. The state department is fine with this as long as he doesn't fly. However, when talking to HAL they tell me they will not let him board with a passport card. (One of my concerns is will there be a problem based on whoever is at the dock's understanding?) He insists he doesn't need the passport. I'm really paranoid about spending all that money and them not letting him go.
  6. They aren't the ones I was looking at, but they do look good!
  7. I am convinced. Though the set that I saw on Amazon are infinitely cuter than the ebags and far cheaper, I'm going with the ebags. While it's hard to compete with blue and white stripes, the recent reviews were not great. Conversely, everyone seems to love their ebag cubes. Thank you for all the good advice and thoughts.
  8. I have no idea where this question should go. I saw a realky cute set of six cubes in various sizes on Amazon for not much money. Other stores have far more expensive, and less cute sets for double, tripple and quadruple the price. What are the quality differences between more and less expensive sets?
  9. I am going on my second cruise on Carnival Liberty next January 17th. I haven't actually been on the first yet. Thats going to be in June with a family member. In January I'm going to Nassau. I don't actually have much interest in Nassau, but I will be happy to escape the New York winter. I hope I won't be bored or feel awkward wandering the boat alone.
  10. I am booked for a ten day cruise tour that begins on June 13. I've bought beverage packages, dining packages and all excursions. I bought new luggage, luggage tags and a rain coat. I'm shopping for a dress for the second gala night. All that's not actually what makes me worry. I dream about the cruise every night, and it seems like all night. Every time I wake up I've been dreaming about it again. It feels like it may be a long three months. Is this normal?

    I think things being what they are, I am just going to try to make the best of it. If you can't change it, I guess that's the only option.

    Happily we did book the white pass railway in Skagway. My uncle who has always wanted to see Alaska seems satisfied. The good thing is they are handling all the logistics, so the portion of time we would have spent wrestling luggage is taken care of. And yhe cost of flying in and out of Seattle was very reasonable.
