    Sail Away Party

    Thanks for your response. We were just so excited to go on this cruise that we planned for two years so we high tailed it up to the top deck at sailaway and wah wah it was dead!! LOL

    Sail Away Party

    We were on the Coral last Junes sailing out of Whittier and were extremely disappointed there was not a sail away party. There was only about 30 people on deck and no horn was sounded. Is this not a thing when you sail out of Alaska or is it just Princess that does not have a sail away party? This was our first time on Princess and sailing on a non-caribbean cruise which always has parties.
  3. I second Oceano's, here is a photo I took of our view at sunset.
  4. We made reservations at the Marriott Stellaris in Condado and they let us check in after disembarking the ship.
  5. We had to play it safe as I had back surgery and was wearing a back brace so I think I planned it as best I could.
  6. I don't recognize it but we saw so much LOL
  7. Where did you see the puppies at? We were on the same cruise and took the tour with Chilkoot however, the puppies in Carcross were 16 weeks old so they were big. I was a little disappointed.
  8. We did a DYI before our Princess cruise last summer. We flew into Anchorage and arrived at 7 pm, ate dinner and went to the hotel and crashed. Day 2 we called an Uber to take us to Avis downtown to pick up our rental car. We spent a full day in Anchorage going thru the shops downtown and taking a trolley tour which we caught outside of the Visitors Center. Day 3 we drove up to Talkeetna and the views were beautiful. It was a long drive and I don't know what all the hype is about therefore, this would be the one thing we did I would not do again. Others might enjoy this tiny town but us not so much. Day 4 we got up and left our hotel at 5 am to drive to Seward for our tour with Major Marines which we had to be there around 10 am. I wanted to have time to stop and pull over for photo ops and it was perfect timing, this is the most gorgeous landscape I have ever seen in my life! After the tour was over we drove to Girdwood and stayed at the Alyeska Ski Resort and it was beautiful. Day 5 we drove into Anchorage and just hung out and had lunch at Moose Tooth Pizza (yum) and turned in our rental car. On our last morning before the cruise we called Uber to take us to the train station and we took the train into Whittier. It was an awesome ride and we were one of the first ones on the ship. I hope my little story has help a bit and enjoy your cruise, we can't wait to go back!!
  9. Whenever we bring water on board I tape around it leaving a handle and slap a luggage tag on it. We give it to the porters and have never had any problems with it being delivered to our room!
  10. We have always stayed in Webster or League City the night before as the quality hotels are much cheaper than in Galveston. We also park at Lighthouse parking because it is monitored as opposed to leaving our car in a hotel lot. Heard too many stories of cars vandalized at hotel lots. Do not chance driving in the same day. My coworker left DFW at 6 am on a Sunday for Galveston and was stuck on a shut down 45 in Houston and missed her cruise.
  11. I always get it done before I leave home before my trip as a pre-cruise celebration!
