  1. What is your prognosis/ limitations during the time of the cruise? how must can you expect to do? What tours were you planning on?
  2. You can still book your own flight with Flight Ease even if you use a TA. And you can choose your city pairs and layovers. Yes you can add on days on either side. You won't necessarily get FF miles, and you can't use them with Flight Ease.
  3. I agree with SuperCrewBear. Granted these aren't wild but it's the cheapest and easiest bear viewing you'll do on a cruise. All of these animals are rescues. The work these people do is wonderful. Also easy to do on your own is the Raptor Center.... similar concept but for birds. They rehab eagles and other birds and release them if possible once they are healthy. The Raptor Center also has many trails with easy walks. From both/either you can walk back to port through the Totem park. A great day on your cruise!
  4. The ones at Costco are ok. Just ok. For what you pay they are a great treat. But they're not as good as the ones you can buy in World Market or online. Of course, nothing is as good as having one fresh made at a market in Holland.... My mom always would put her stroopwafel on top of her coffee a bit. These ones from Costco benefit from that especially as the steam from the hot coffee (or tea) not only warms the treat but moistens it a bit also. Enjoy everyone.
  5. Since it's booked with Flight Ease - it is technically not fully ticketed (until final payment is due) - and I can't find the fare class. So I called my TA. They checked with HAL and it seems that I have standard economy. She was told by HAL that right now pricing to Premium Economy or Business class is over $1000 each way and I should be able to get a [paid] upgrade once payment is made. Fingers Crossed. Thank you all for your insight.
  6. I'm not sure if this is the best forum for this question - but I'll try here first. Can someone familiar with Air Canada compare their classes?... the wording is making me second guess myself. Economy Class - I assume this is basic seats.. the cheapest, smallest seat possible. Then Economy is split to Standard, Flex, Comfort, and Latitude - I can see the difference in change fees - what's a "preferred seat"? Premium Economy - this looks more like business class on other airlines. Business Class - looks more like First Class on other airlines. Where do Economy Rouge and Premium Rouge play in here? And if you can also provide insight - I booked Air Canada through HAL's flight ease. What did I book? LOL.
  7. This is awesome. It didn't occur to me that there would still be swag available. I work for an NBC station and will just have finished the Toyko games before my cruise. This would be perfect. Thank you.
  8. I got an Ulu for my husband on my last trip. He is a cooking enthusiast and appreciates it. What was special about the Cycling Jersey in Sikta?
  9. I have more than enough "stuff" in my house - but I'd like to bring back something special and unique from my cruise that starts in Vancouver. Also stopping in Ketchikan, Haines, ISP, Anchorage, Homer, Valdez and Juneau. What is something that you've bought for yourself or a gift that you were happy with?

  11. Thank you. Somehow I missed that.
  12. How do you book other than main cabin? I didn't see an option
  13. I've tried it. You can find similar even cheaper ($10 or so) but don't waste your money. It's very hard to get the clip to stay on in the right spot to exactly cover the iphone lens circle. And when you do, it's frustrating to try and focus - because you're likely to move the clip and have to fight to get it to cover the lens again. The couple of pictures I did get were pixelated and blah. I'll mail you my set for free if you pay shipping and want to try it. Seriously.
