  1. Before I responded, I forgot to ask which ship you would be on. cabins are a little larger on the R&S Ships than on the Vista, Signature or Pinnacle Suites. The Vista, Signature, and Pinnacle have Signature Suites that don’t have all the frills of the Neptune Suite and are cheaper.
  2. My Dad, Sister and I had originally booked a balcony cabin on the Eurodam last year. Within ten days of disembarktion I received an upsell offer to a signature Suite which I took. The space was fine for three in a Signature Suite, we would have killed each other in a regular balcony. My sister and I had a Thermal Suite Pass and were usually gone for two hours. My Dad had his private time and used the jacuzzi tub in the shower. The above picture is a picture on the same ship my Dad, Sister and I were on last year but only this picture was taken when my dad and I were on the ship this past May in the type of balcony I had originally booked for three last year. This cabin there were only two of us. This was a VC balcony that can Sleep three or 4 in some cabins. When they mean 3 or 4 It would only hold two adults and 2 children is what it could hold. They were not meant to hold 4 adults. You would want to go two cabins or a signature Suite.
  3. There is no assigned time to go. It is just the software to book. I think they use the same software to reserve speciality dining. I was on the Eurodam in May. For a 7 day cruise to pre-book it was $139 for a single. I can’t remember what a couples pass was. When I boarded the cost was $169.00. The price went up. I used the pass every day at different times.
  4. According to the website it is good til June 30th. It is non-refundable unless you purchase the cancellation insurance at the time of booking. Full payment must be done within 24 hours of booking. You would need to check the website because this deal is only for select sailings.
  5. I use Seattle express. The cost is $18.00. You reserve online. Meet the Seattle Express shuttle in Lane R to the Airport. They start as early as 7:00. We had a 12:25 flight and made it n plenty of time. Once thing with the Seattle Airport is that the TSA line is horrible. I spoke with with several people that were in n Norweign or Princess and they missed there flights and they were all n the ship’s transfers. These were for 11:00 flights.
  6. The RT bus ticket Bus ticket to Mendenhall Glacier is one of the tours that is offered at the kiosks when arriving in Juneau. The bus leaves adjacent to the Mt Roberts Tram area where all the tour buses are. The bus drops you off right by Mendenhall Glacier drop off and pick up Area. The $45.00 does get you closer then the regular public transportation. I have not used the public transportation but have talked to folks that have to get the exercise. The buses depart Mendenhall Glacier every half hour.
  7. Do not buy it ahead of time. i have been to Juneau 5 times. 3 times the weather was great and two times it was raining and you could not see a view. If the the weather turns out to be nice go purchase the tram ticket from the Mt Roberts booth. if the weather is cloudy go to Mendenhall Glacier. The Glacier is beautiful in the rain or sunshine. There will be kiosk at the port selling excursions. You can purchase a round trip ticket bus ticket for $45..00 to the Glacier. (That is what the price was last month)
  8. I agree on the getting a signature Suite if you have 3 adults in a cabin. My dad sister and I were on the Eurodam to Hawaii and got an upsell to a signature Suite from a Balcony. My dad and I were in a balcony last month on the Eurodam. If there were 3 of us in the balcony cabin, we would not be speaking to each other. If you decide to just do a balcony, I would book two balconies. The Signature Suite is well worth the price. If you have a choice between Glacier Bay or Hubbard Glacier, I would go for Glacier Bay.
  9. I took the shuttle into town . Once there sign up for a bus ride to the fortress of the bear and raptor Center for $10.00 from Tribal Tours, Paid the entrance into the Fortress of the Bear for $15.00. The guy from Tribal Tours returned an hour later. Then dropped people off at the raptor Center. I have been there several times so I just stayed on the bus. I don’t know how much the raptor center admission is right now. The raptor center is awesome. Fortress of the bear depends on the weather and how much action is going on. Saw eagles up close watching for left overs from the bears dinner. Alaska is so conducive of weather and found waiting to get transportation once into town much more enjoyable than a large tour. On one trip to Alaska, I booked barnacles, bears and birds and it poured down rain. In the pouring down of rain there was not much action at the fortress of the Bear.
  10. I use Seattle Express. It is a shuttle service that works with Airport Hotels. If you use it round trip it is $30.00 per person plus tax. if you go one way the cost is $18.00 plus per person. i have used them 3 times and service has been great.
  11. I just got off the Eurodam two weeks ago. The Spa Pass was $139.00 to pre-book and $169.00 when we boarded. This was for a single. I cannot remember what the couples pass was.
  12. I just off the Eurodam and I pre-booked the Thermal Suite Pass for $139 for 7 days. When I boarded the ship it went up to $169.00. Check your booking Account under the spa to see how much it is going for.
  13. I was on the Maasdam through the Panama Canal two years ago. We did have a flood in our cabin when we arrived but Hal took care of it and we were compensated for the Inconvience. Service and food were awesome. We did have a problem with the A/C and they gave us a fan that helped make it comfortable. I do find on ships it is either too hot or too cold. No matter what ship. So I adapt. with that being said I would not hesitate to sail on the Maasdam again. The Maasdam is sailing out of my home port doing 3 3 week itineary’s To Alaska. unfortunately my schedule will not allow me to be away for three weeks right now. If I could get away I would do it in a Heartbeat. My brother sailed on her in Nov from Tahiti to New Zealand and he said the food was great, the service was great. He really liked the Exc Depth experience.
  14. Just go to one of the bars onboard the ship. You should be able to purchase one. You will need to show them your key card. The only difference with buying onboard, is that the card does not have your name on it. If you buy it ahead of time they will deliver it to your cabin and it has your name on it. If you have allot of OBC, it is better to wait til you get onboard.
  15. Glad to hear that the service is still great on the Eurodam. I was on her in October and goi g to be on her 10 days. Thanks for the reviews. Very helpful as usual.
