  1. Coke, Diet Coke, Sprite...... and a few more. I don't drink soda much either. I buy it for the mocktails also.
  2. I have a friend going this summer from Whittier to Denali. I vaguely remember people posting that Princess had re-done their trains and were moving towards all forward seats as opposed to booth seats with some seats facing backwards. Can anyone who went last year let me know what type of seats you had on the train?
  3. Sometimes Princess doesn't go direct - they sometimes go to Portage Glacier. They try to time the buses so they hit the tunnel and multiple buses don't show up at once. It has been awhile since I have done one.
  4. I have to say I have joined the "kindle revolution" and like it. I never thought I would say that.
  5. I completely agree. If you can't do 2 cabins, do a mini suite.
  6. The upsell people are not there on weekends. I would call the number if you still have the old upsell. Otherwise, have your TA check on prices.
  7. I don't know how long your cruise is but $179 from an inside to balcony for a 7 night cruise - I would have taken it. Yes you can receive multiple upsell offers. Have you tried calling the number back and see if they are still offering it?
  8. Expect to be impressed :)
  9. I am not an expert on this but Glacier Bay has a limit of 2 cruise ships per day. So while there maybe 6 companies that have access, they don't have equal access. For example - Carnival only send 2-3 sailings per year into Glacier Bay. It is often at the very beginning of the season or very late in the season. NCL, Holland and Princess have specific sailings every week that go to Glacier Bay. Princess also has a ship out of SFO that sometimes goes to Glacier Bay and sometimes doesn't. I don't follow Seabourn enough to know their access. Crystal seems to be able to step in and get access when they want. They can not be in Alaska for years and then come back to the market and get access. The whole process is bizarre. RCCL and Celebrity were banned due to dumping a very long time ago. Princess recently paid a huge fine for dumping but they continue to have access. The parks have given access based on some historical reasons (Princess and HAL).
  10. I used to bring 3-4 books for a one week cruise and double that for a 2 week cruise. I would then donate the books to the library when I was done. I remember one time the person in there indicated that they didn't want my books. These were all recent top selling books. I think they checked out of the library business years ago. So while some may have taken some home, many of us donated them also.
  11. My guess is "unprofitable space". The libraries used to be well used once upon a time.
