  1. My must-see list for Seward: Seward Windsong Lodge (if you haven't yet booked a place to stay) Seavey's IdidaRide Sled Dog Tours Kenai Fjords Tours Alaska SeaLife Center The Cookery (consistently rated as the #1 restaurant in Seward) Thorn's (absolutely delicious halibut) Lighthouse Cafe & Bakery (great breakfasts & lunches)
  2. No umbrellas -- book a clamshell, or look for shade.
  3. Any recent Fort Lauderdale day hotel recommendations for post-cruise before late flight?
  4. We stayed in Seward for 3 night/4 days, all without a car. We stayed here: https://www.alaskacollection.com/lodging/seward-windsong-lodge/ There's a bus that goes from Anchorage right to the lodge! And then the Seward shuttle is free to lodge guests. We used it to get into town for meals as well as assorted places in Seward. We actually never ate at the lodge as the shuttle was so easy to use -- and there's tons of great food options in town. You can also book excursions directly through the lodge.
  5. I highly recommend https://ywcavan.org/hotel It's a legit hotel (not a hostel) -- I stay there every time I'm in Vancouver. Rooms are on the small side, but it's very clean and front desk staff are terrific. Small coffee shop on site, or bigger restaurants all within a minute or two walk. Very close to Queen Elizabeth Theatre if you're thinking of taking in a play or musical before boarding your ship.
  6. Also, it can be difficult to get a cab to come and get you -- and pricey to have one wait for you.

  8. Highly recommend rubber sandals. Here's a selfie :)
  9. I highly recommend the "Salsa, Salsa, Margarita" excursion. It's not a tour -- you just go there, make (and eat) salsa, make (and drink) margaritas and then dance salsa! You can use the huge hotel pool afterwards, or they'll just bring you right back to the ship.
  10. I also looked into the same thing, and there are 2 problems -- if you want the cab to wait, you'll pay for each minute -- and if the cab leaves, you'll have difficulty getting one to come and get you.
  11. Had a great experience -- ended up there after the Holiday Inn next door goofed and "accidentally" gave away our room. They were so nice, and even offered us two vouchers for free drinks in their bar. I would definitely stay there again.
  12. Most ships have vending machines (bandaids, tylenol, etc) located just outside their medical centres -- I'm surprised to hear that this ship didn't.
  13. I agree with the above. I've done the Med a couple of times in July (like others, I'm a teacher, so it's the summer or never). I figure I can put up with the heat during the day as long as I can have a good, cold sleep. If you're staying in Rome or Venice before/after cruise, choose a centrally located hotel. It makes it much easier to take a break mid-day. In Rome, make use of the free drinking fountains. They're everywhere and the water is cool and delicious. Keep drinking water all day -- even when you're not thirsty! If I drank the amount of water at home in the winter that I drink in Rome in the summer, I'd be running to the bathroom all day. But in the crazy heat of Rome I went hours and hours and didn't need to go -- lol. Here's info (and a map) of the Rome drinking fountains: https://www.explore-italian-culture.com/drinking-fountains-of-rome.html https://www.livitaly.com/rome-drinking-fountains/
