  1. when special dine was STARTED at $5 each, was described to cover TIP, maybe before your time, evolved into a cHARGE for the dinner
  2. we were just there couple weeks ago, causeway not worth it for us who see a lot of this stuff in & around Oregon bit the coast is great. Some tours don't allow enough time for the coast as it is windy and slippery when wet. LONG drive out there.
  3. yes, included in charge, always has been, that is why they charged $5 in beginning when started this special dine stuff. which is outrageous to begin with
  4. I am sure Princess does not want me to tell you this BUT I did not want to spend an hour or more trying to get into the system BEFORE we cruised for 28 days a week ago getting off, had a cabin change during this. JUST went to counter w/board passes filled out and they just went over to where they kept CARDS area & pulled out our Medallions, name & cruise on them. Had problems onboard several times BUT so did the others who PRE signed up for them. PLENTY of help in separate area for getting phones, iPads etc set up, we were on Crown-28 day B.I and T/A
  5. just off Crown yesterday, B/B with cabin change out of Southampton NO problems at all except some things did not at FIRST BOARD did not pair, others had same. There are lots of people helping in area OUTSIDE internet area.
  6. I hope this is 14 day, RT from Vancouver, also you can have bad weather any month
  7. Sailed to Alaska 21 times, love it. LEAVE from Vancouver if you can, you will get more time in port, BETTER time, you will have mountains to look at first evening & next morning if up early enough, coming back to Vancouver the last evening you will be seeing mountains of Vancouver Island instead of OPEN ocean a lot of time leaving from Seattle. College Fiord is beautiful if not cloudy. If in Juneau from 8AM till AFTER 5PM take the all day trip to Tracy Arm and when in Whittier take the 26 Glacier Tour boat. There are other things to see & do up there, love being there. I live in Oregon-WEST side of Cascades with mountains also. I would not book too much on ship-trips , too expensive. TOO much to tell you Have fun Don-ukestrummer
  8. Sorry, OUT of cards now Don
  9. I have some cards need to be used, will mail them to?? ONLY one card to a couple perep @ aol dot com IN Oregon for locals NOT TO BE RESOLD EITHER, just good will here, YES they can be used by ANYONE till end of August
  10. I found out that under free tours search there are couple companies that meet around the SPIRE church area, ONE has yellow umbrellas, have 4 times for tours during the day
  11. ARE there tour guides at the PORT, coming in on the Crown -September. Should I get tickets BEFORE we come? How far from where we dock? Are there street venders that sell these tours?
  12. Phillips B to B Discount I think AAA & maybe senior, military-check with them. Done this TWICE, great time
  13. People go to Alaska for the Whales, Mountains, Snow, Bears , Glaciers, paying more than Carrib. cruise so I think the scenery is worth going through original INSIDE passage, calm water & scenes. Sorry I offended you but Vancouver is the best in my view, also time in ports & when you arrive & leave is VERY important as some excursions not available on a lot of ship arrivals. All the stuff to do on ship is ok but I-WE got for solice & scenery.
  14. NEVER LEAVE FROM SEATTLE IF YOU CAN SWING THE VANCOUVER TRIP. YOU WILL BE STUCK OUT IN OPEN WATERS FOR DAY & HALF WITH NO LAND IN SIGHT BOTH WAYS, S.F same thing only worse. YOU are going to Alaska, NOT on a fishing trip out in ocean for 3 days out of trip. Safer waters on REAL inside passage. They started doing the Ocean thing I believe to save money from seattle years ago.
  15. there is also the 26 glacier cruise when off ship in Whittier-fantastic
