  1. If these are the cruises going this winter - I doubt they are going to go. A lot of major companies that sail this area have already cancelled. BTW - I started sailing Princess in my 20's and had no problems.
  2. There is natural beauty when you go to the Yukon from Skagway. It is stunning. You picked probably the 2 weakest itineraries in Alaska. I would do some more research, maybe read a book on Alaska (Alaska by Cruiseship Anne Vipond) and then decide on where you want to go. Go to Glacier Bay. Way better than Dawes Glacier.
  3. While I agree Skagway is a tourist town - getting out of Skagway and doing the White Pass train or driving into the Yukon are definitely worthy. I have friends who do flight seeing to Glacier Bay National Park from Skagway/Haines that they rave about. I think there is a lot to do from Skagway. This is not to say it is better than Sitka - they are just different. I feel the same about Juneau. I love excursions from Juneau but I don't hang out in the tourist shops in Juneau. Glacier tours, Tracy Arm boat ride, whale watching, etc.... Lots to do once you get out of Juneau downtown.
  4. I go to Alaska to see Alaska. These itineraries are weak at seeing Alaska. If your goal is to spend time on the ship with bells and whistles, then these ships will work. They are not a good itinerary for Alaska.
  5. I probably wouldn't do either. I think they are both poor itineraries.

    Anchorage Lunch

    I like Glacier Brewhouse.
  7. Mine was applied to the farthest cruise out which only had a hold on it as opposed to the one with a deposit that was sooner. It was stupid.
  8. Princess is just applying them how they see fit. It is frustrating! I know my TA is frustrated at this also because she has to go back and re-allocate them how her clients what them allocated. She wishes Princess wouldn't allocate them with out direction from client.
  9. I am hoping to be on a river cruise a year from now. Don't hesitate to get your friend AMEX involved if your refund isn't processed within 60 days or so.
  10. I think you were wise. I hope you didn't run into any penalties.

    Alaska in May

    In Alaska you will want to do excursions. The best part of Alaska is not in the port towns - it is getting out of the port towns. It is different than the Caribbean.
  12. Just wanted to say "cool game"! Great idea!
