  1. Princess is facing federal charges for polluting Alaska again. https://www.ktuu.com/content/news/Carnival-cruises-in-court-over-pollution-from-its-cruise-ships.html
  2. There is no rope course on the Bliss
  3. The taxi drop off/pickup spot here here near the black SUV using Google Maps street view. https://www.google.com/maps/@58.4123564,-134.5450395,3a,75y,327.92h,63.58t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1ssWthuvC7I_rlH4xGmSfY8A!2e0!7i13312!8i6656 The Glacier Center is a 5 minute walk up the street. It's third of a mile away.
  4. The taxi drop off/ pickup site is here (near the black SUV). This is from Google Maps street view. You can walk to the Visitor Center easily. https://www.google.com/maps/@58.4123564,-134.5450395,3a,75y,327.92h,63.58t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1ssWthuvC7I_rlH4xGmSfY8A!2e0!7i13312!8i6656 The Glacier Center is a 5 minute walk up the street. It's third of a mile away.
  5. The price is the total one way not PP. We had 4 persons so it was cheaper than the blue/white bus. The City bus is cheaper but the drop off is about 2.5 miles away. You should pre book as many tried to grab OUR cab at the cruise dock. Glacier taxi is orange and easy to spot. We were also picked up by Glacier Taxi. We called them after visiting Nugget Falls. Someone tried to grab our cab on the way back too. The drop off/pick up spot is an easy 5 minute walk from the Glacier Center.
  6. Taxis cannot pickup @ parking lot without surcharge. They can pickup 5 minute walk away. You can call them when ready. We did this in May. Used Glacier taxi. Fare $38 to cruise dock.
  7. Maybe they can drop you off about a 5 minute walk away. Ask them. Operators have to pay a surcharge to drop off right at the Glacier parking lot.
  8. David: I'm sure he knows that Hawai'i is part of the US. I think he was asking if those of Japanese descent in Hawai'i speak Japanese. My wife does.
  9. ^ David, no inside joke. Several times on the cruise people would try to speak to me in Japanese or Chinese. "No hablo Ingles.", I would respond.

    2019 Trip Reports

    Alaskan Bliss Trip Report May 19-26.
  11. From The Days of '98 pre show. Skagway Alaska
  12. Our Butler was Walter who worked his way up from bellman. Concierge was Patrick and room steward was Randolph. All were excellent. The 2nd bedroom in the DOS is indeed great. All rooms in the DOS are great.
  13. Sorry I didn't notice perhaps ask this person
  14. Just when I thought I was done. Steven Kikuchi on FB photo shopped our welcome photo thus.
  15. NCL Bliss Haven Boarding I (may be) finally finished 🙂
  16. Welcome aboard photo. I asked to have them photoshop an orca and an eagle into this. Instead I got seagulls, Space Needle and Pike Place Market.
  17. The Ballad of Soapy Smith from the Days of '98 pre-show. Tickets $25 each Get there at least 15 before show time. Play is a little bawdy but not offensive.
  18. Bliss May 2019 Captain Staffan Bengtsson First Officer Daniel Farace Chief Engineer Ivan Vladislovic General Manager (Hotel Director) Jovo Sekulovic Cruise Director Silas Cook Assistant GM Jocel Guzman Food & Beverage Director Charles Fernandes Restaurant Manager Elena Cornea Executive Chef Francis Gomes Executive Housekeeper Ferdinand Fandialan
  19. There is a self service laundry aboard but it is DIY. Hint. After washing, roll the clothes in a towel and give them a once over with the hair dryer before hanging. Dry by the next morning. There is a $19.95 full bag special on Wednesday. One night in the DOS is more expensive than our 4 month college budget. We were Golden (Bears) then and are golden still. The DOS picture gallery is here: https://postimg.cc/gallery/1wlbaq47u/ I use https://postimages.org to host my images. My previous live TR is here: We are cruising on the Bliss in a 2 BR Haven Suite on October 13 , 2019 and again in the DOS next year October 12th. I'll do live trip reports then. Thanks for following and all the comments here. Makes it worth while to do these trip reports. Any further questions?
  20. We enjoyed meeting you and Rachelle many times. Hope to meet both of you on a future cruise.
  21. Just got off the Bliss. I'm following so I can continue to enjoy this cruise.
  22. We've brought sunshine back to Seattle completing the great weather cruise. and now, without comment, food pictures Glacier Blue, only served @ The Local. I suggested adding blue ice cubes with streaks of dirt. I'll finish this when we get home.
