  1. YWCA Hotel - great location, awesome reviews on Tripadvisor and on this board, less than $175/night, clean, comfortable, can that be beat...really?
  2. Hmmm, Chilkoot Tours is showing it on their website for our date in early May - Yukon Rail and Bus Tour. I had checked into your Bennett Lake tour as well but when I went to the WPYR site I noticed the train schedule is not available that far in advance but I never thought about how Chilkoot is offering it for booking already. Guess I need to look into it more.
  3. Anyone know what approximate time the shops and restaurants are open until in early May? Thought I read somewhere they have shortened hours early in the season. Trying to decide on the short or long train/bus excursion but would also like some time to shop and maybe check out the Red Onion Saloon.
  4. Wow I just checked Pacific Rim and for $938.83 CND for one night I guess it should be exceptional!!!! Sorry but I would sleep on a park bench for a night before spending that kind of money for a bed to sleep in for one night! That is a quarter of our cruise fare:eek:
  5. Thanks everyone. I will keep checking all options until cruise time. I've used Hotwire and Better Bidding many times in the past and always with luck got the hotel I was trying for so that is definitely an option if nothing else comes up. I did check with my TA and she can't help with those properties[emoji53]. Sent from my iPad using Forums
  6. Has anyone come across super deals for these properties at any time? I am Canadian and have a few employee perk programs but none of them bring the rates down under $500 per night (May 2019). I have also joined the hotel loyalty programs in order to receive special offers via email, of which I have received a few for properties other than in Vancouver. Would love to stay at one of these the night before the cruise. We have YWCA Hotel booked for a few nights after the cruise and will stay there the night before if I can't get one of these places for a price I can live with (<$350).
  7. Please do. We are booked in a double/double with private bath for 2019. Martincath has provided some extremely valuable information on these boards and I have no doubt at all that the Y is a great place to stay, but I like to hear everyone's take on a place :) I'm also wondering if the double beds are actually double beds or are they queen?
  8. Thank you, mine shows up there as well. These are the perks we received from this sale (in CND $) PREMIER BEVERAGE PACKAGE PROMOTION $603.61 x 2 1 6X8 PHOTO OR PHOTO CREDIT-NO CASH $16.23 *CRUISE NIGHT COUPON BOOKS $0.00 x 2 COMPLIMENTARY GRATUITIES (SUITES) $101.50 x 2 SPECIALTY RESTAURANT COVER CHARGE $36.25 x 2
  9. I was just filling in some of the forms on my Cruise Personalizer and in the Travel Documents sections it asks what document you will bring. The options are Enhanced Driver's License, Enhanced Non-Driver Identification, Fast Card, Nexus Card, Passport Book or Sentri Card and you can only choose one. I supposed that is just for clearance from the cruise line but you would think border agents, especially in border provinces/states would be very familiar with a Nexus card. I do have Nexus but only use it crossing the border on my weekly grocery shopping excursions or overnighting nearby but take my passport when actually travelling.
  10. You can try that or call them. The promo with the non-refundable deposit is not the same one as the free grats and drink package.
  11. I have not seen any mention of OBC. I rebooked using this agency, in Canada they actually have offices and not just online and call centre, mini-suite and we got drink package, grats, one specialty dinner, one photo on board and the coupon booklet and when I checked on my Cruise Planner there is also chocolate dipped strawberries from the TA [emoji4]. Anyone seeing the drink package listed on your cruise planner? Mine isn't, it is on my receipt though. I'm wondering if that will get added when Princess launches Sip and Sail. My receipt does say "promo combinable with Princess's Sip and Sale promotion". Sent from my iPad using Forums
  12. As myself and others have stated the price for this promo is exactly the same as the price I had booked with a different agency which is also exactly the same as what is showing on the Princess website. I booked this cruise the same week it was released from Princess. So in reality I am getting all those perks for free since the price is exactly the same as when the sailing was originally released for booking. Sent from my iPad using Forums
  13. I have rebooked using this 3 day special. The price is exactly what I paid through a different TA and which is today listed on the Princess website when doing a mock booking. I am losing the $500 OBC that I had but getting free grats, drink package, one specialty dinner, one free photo and a coupon book supposedly worth a value of $750 which is prob of no benefit to us. So the inclusions, which we would have purchased anyway, are far greAter than $500. Sent from my iPad using Forums
  14. My Alaskan cruise for May 2019 is included. Same price as I currently had booked with a different TA using the Landmark sale but includes free drink package and free grats. Also includes reduced deposit and coupon booklet valued at $750. We will lose the $500 OBC from Landmark sale but will be substantial savings for us considering we were going to purchase the beverage package. Sent from my iPad using Forums
  15. Thanks! That's what I thought [emoji1]. Sent from my iPad using Forums
  16. We currently have $550 OBC using the Landmark sale and TA perk. Does Princess ever let you combine promos? I told my current TA about the 3 day sale from the different agency and asked if there was anything she could do to get closer to the free drink and grats promo of which she can't but she did bring up the $550 OBC stating that it could be possible Princess would let it be combined with the Sip N Sail when they release it next month. I can't wait to see since the other promo would be done by the time Princess releases the SNS. I have never experienced any other cruise line allowing this but this is our first time on Princess.

  17. Found the answer on the website of the TA if anyone else is wondering - yes spring 2019 Alaskan cruises are included.
  18. Back last winter I called and asked Princess why my May 2019 Alaskan cruise was not included in a Spring 2019 promo and the agent I spoke with said all Alaskan cruises are considered "summer", so does anyone have any knowledge as to whether May 2019 Alaskan cruises will be eligible for this promo?
