  1. My sister and I are looking ahead to plan a cruise tour to Alaska in summer 2020. We were thinking a 3-day land portion, to be followed by the 7-day cruise - Anchorage to Vancouver. What's the difference between the "on your own" land portions or the "Princess-led" portion? How do you handle luggage? I don't want to travel with 2 big bags (one for the ship and one for the land portion). Are meals included in the pricing or do you pay separately for everything? What's the quality of these lodges? Just curious (not essential) - is there WIFI? I've looked online and cannot find answers to these questions.
  2. My sister and I are arriving in Copenhagen (connecting through Paris) for a Princess Baltic cruise and will be using Princess' transfer to the ship. Do we pick up our own luggage before going through customs and then add the Princess luggage tags before going to the meeting location? How do we know where the meeting location is?
  3. With all of the different currencies used on a Baltic cruise, what do people do about exchanging money? Euros alone will not be sufficient. Any recommendations?
  4. My sister and I will be on a Princess Baltic cruise this summer. - Regal Princess With Platinum status with Princess, I am supposed to be eligible for 250 free internet minutes. Our ship has MedallionNet and offers a special deal for unlimited internet, if purchased prior to boarding. How would this work if she took advantage of the "unlimited access" and I had access to the 250 free internet minutes? Can all these minutes be accessed on multiple devices? We will have a total of 4 devices between us.
  5. How are meals different on a Viking Ocean cruise from a River cruise?
