  1. I just looked at re-booking our cruise that was cancel to Alaska on June 26th 2021 to June 25th 2022. Everything the same and its $1297.84 more than the June 26th 2021 cruise that was canceled and I'll be losing $500 in OBC. It’s going to be devastating to Alaska and the local Seattle economy, losing another cruise season. Cruise ships and the tourists that come into Seattle every cruise ship bring in an estimated $833 million to the local Puget Sound economy. I feel sorry for those in the cruise ports in Alaska, they are the ones who are going to be impacted the most.
  2. We have a cruise scheduled for late June to Alaska. If it goes it goes, if it doesn't oh well we'll go in 2022. The economy in Alaska is hurting big time do to the lack of tourism. I hope they get it all settled and we can go.
  3. We primarily cruise to Alaska every year out of Seattle. A couple of times we stopped in Prince Rupert BC, no one off, there was an exchange of paperwork and an hour later we were on our way. Another time we were scheduled to stop in Victoria BC, the wind blowing hard and the captain decided it was too dangerous to try and get into Victoria so we anchored and spend a few hours outside of Victoria, again they came out and exchanged some paperwork and we left at midnight. The Canadians may allow the ship to stop but no one go ashore. We have a Alaska cruise scheduled for late June I hate to miss
  4. We’ve been on 14 Alaska cruises and I couldn’t agree more. The ship I enjoyed the most was the Pacific Princess.
  5. To each his own. We don't have smart phones and have no plans on getting one, We don't need them and we don't want one. How is Princess going to handle us who don't have a smart phone? When we get on the ship we turn off our "flip" phone, toss it into the safe and don't turn it back on until we get back off the ship. We don't cruise again until next June so I think Princess wll have enough time to figure it all out. But I guess I'll get a little Medallion thingy to keep in my pocket.
  6. Thanks for the heads up, I did not know that.
  7. What big 3 day sale! The cruise we are looking at is the same price as it was last week. FREE upgrades, big deal, I don't drink and I don't do WIFI on a cruise.
  8. This is a kind of an interesting video
  9. That would probably be the smart thing to do. We have canceled all of our trips to Alaska this year. We have relatives in Kenai and they say that there is talk of canceling the Bristol Bay fishery this year, that is a huge industry. When they talk like that you know things aren't good.
  10. So I'm supposed to go see my Dr. who I can't get a appointment with when I am sick and get a letter sign stating that I'm fit to travel. That leaves a large portion of those who cruise out in the cold, because a large percentage of them have the aliments listed.
  11. We have 2 cruises planned, one in May out Vancouver and one in June out of Seattle we aren't planning on canceling any of them. If the prices keep coming down on Alaska cruises we might do another cruise out of Seattle. We aren't to worried about getting sick.
  12. We've done the train out of Skagway many times. The Bennett lake journey is the one we have enjoyed the most https://wpyr.com/excursions/product/bennett-scenic-journey/ https://wpyr.com/excursions/product/bennett-scenic-journey/ If your going to take the bus/train combo it's best to ride the bus up in the morning and take the train back in the afternoon, there can be fog in the morning. Try to sit on the right side of the bus going up and on the right side of the train coming back down, you'll see more that way. I like to stand out on the platform on the train.
  13. You can't miss it, it's right on the Yukon Highway. They'll be "A" board signs out on the highway. We've been up the Yukon highway numerous times, get a copy of Murray;'s guide, it's very helpful. When we rent a car we always rent from Avis. When you go to pickup your car be one of the first to get off the ship and hustle over to Avis. That way you can beat the buses going up the Yukon Highway.
