  1. Two of us and I think it was $50 plus tip.
  2. Yes. That was the company we used. I just let them know when I booked, how many bags and once we got our luggage and walked out to curbside I called and told them where we were located.
  3. We were on the Ovation June 21st but did not eat in the solarium. It is a great area to view the sights.This was probably our favorite ship on Royal!
  4. Forgot to ask you what kind of travel trailer you have? We bought a Winnebago Minnie about a year and a half ago.
  5. We went to the Schooner Bar every evening for our 3 drinks. We aren't big drinkers so no reason for us to go to the Diamond lounge, plus I can drink free in the casino any time they are open.
  6. The Limo service was very prompt. Like 3-5 minutes after my call. We stayed at the Grand Hyatt on Pine St. and loved the location. We are in our 60's and walked from downtown to the Space Needle(a bit of a walk) and to the Market. Word to the wise, Get to the market early. It will get so crowded you can't move. Two things I would recommend. #1 Is the chowder at Lowells in Pike Place Market and #2 . Across the street from Pike Place Market is a place called Beechers. If you think you have had good Mac n cheese in the past, you need to try this place. There will probably be a line outside of the place but it is worth the wait!
  7. Check your compass daily. I have seen tournaments on all of the Royal Caribbean cruises I have been on. I have won my qualifying round several times and finished in 2nd place on the Harmony and all I got was a cheap tee shirt.
  8. We did the whale watching tour in Juneau and the train/motor coach tour in Skagway and loved both of them. We went up into the Yukon and the train stopped and the officials boarded and checked everyone's passport, then the bus stopped at a suspension bridge and we all took photos and had a potty break and they also served us Bison Chili. Quite tasty!
  9. Hey scuttles we talked to a couple in either Juneau or Skagway while boarding the ship that I think may have been your family members. They told us how they had to debark in Victoria because of flight issues and the son and I talked about home ac repairs as that was his field. I am also sorry that we missed the Meet and Mingle. We met the couple celebrating their 50th Anniversary. We loved the ship, the Captain and the Cruise Director. Nice to go on a cruise where it wasn't 90 degrees!
  10. We were just on the Ovation with a balcony and while we were at sea going from Skagway to Victoria people on both sides of the ship were spotting whales. When you dock in Juneau or Skagway the starboard side will be against the dock. Coming through the pass both sides have amazing views. We got pretty close to Endicott Glacier and then the Captain slowly did two 360 degree rotations so that everyone could get plenty of photos! Best cruise we have ever been on except for the time change(4 hours) and the short nights in Alaska! This one topped all of our Caribbean cruises.
  11. We are new Diamond members and just got off of the Ovation. We each had 24 hours of free wifi.
  12. We were just on the Ovation and each of us got 24 hrs of free wifi.
  13. Hey Seattle locals, we need a place close to the grand Hyatt on Pine street to do our laundry. Thank you Barry and Debbie
  14. We have family in Lakewood Ranch also!
  15. So my fiancé loves to drink flavored cappuccino but I didn't see where they have any flavors offered. We have been one one cruise as a Diamond member and we will be on the Ovation on the 19th.
