  1. How far is the walk from where the bus drops people off to the dining area?
  2. I hope this happens - we have always gone to Alaska when it never really gets dark and we were above the Arctic Circle in Norway on the Summer Solstice. It would really be a treat to see them.
  3. So it's $20 more for a crab souvenir and a photo opp? LOL. I'd rather walk and have another crab leg for that! Actually, I'd rather just have 2 crab legs and skip the bisque and crab cakes.
  4. I noticed this is offered on our upcoming Grand cruise next month. I don't understand why anyone would book an excursion - been there and Tracy's is easy to get to and I have never experienced a crowd. Kinda of like the salmon bake - very easy to book at the dock.
  5. Cool - thanks. Middle of the night isn't a problem for me.
  6. I wonder if Princess will call at night if there is activity? I will have to ask when I board.
  7. Thanks for that link - interesting about the rotation of the sun impacting the activity - something I didn't know.
  8. Has anyone had a good experience viewing the Aurora mid- late September? We are on the Sept 13th Grand sailing and have never been to Alaska this late. This is the 10 night RT from San Francisco, so we won't be as far north as Anchorage. Keeping fingers crossed that we just might get lucky.
  9. We are on the 9/13 sailing - will be following your posts.
  10. LOL - I learned long ago to just wear flame retardant clothing and not be overly concerned about people who have nothing better to do with their time to be less than helpful.
  11. Thanks - this is the kind of information I was looking for.
  12. Sigh - you think after all these years I don't know how to search a subject? I really wanted to know what the current situation is which someone addressed.
  13. About 4 weeks ago I booked a guarantee on Grand Princess sailing on 9/13. So far no news. It's been years since I booked a guarantee and was wondering how close to sailing they are assigning cabins? Is there a system or does it still appear to be hit or miss?
  14. Don't pre-book anything for Juneau. There are numerous kiosks at the dock that will have all or more tours than you can book onboard, usually for as good as or better prices.
  15. Or put it in a zip lock bag and wash it when you get home.
