  1. We had the same incredibly nice weather experience on our July 30-August 5 cruise on Legend - I guess we brought some of it from AZ too. Except for the early morning low clouds/fog in Ketchikan (which burned off by 10AM) and cloudy most of the day in Tracy Arm, the skies were clear and the weather quite warm (upper 60's, low 70's). Could not have asked for better weather. The scenery is really spectacular. Northern Arizona is high elevation with mountains and a lot of pine forests which is quite a contrast to Phoenix, but Alaska absolutely blows Northern AZ away for beauty. And standing on a glacier and being told the ice under your feet is anywhere from 100 to 200 feet thick is awe inspiring!
  2. As others mention, the second cruise elegant night tends to be a little more dressed down than the first, IMO at least.
  3. We stayed at the Hampton Inn Seattle downtown, about four blocks from the Space Needle and 10-15 minutes or so from pier 91. They don't advertise it but they have a for-fee shuttle from the hotel to pier 91, sorry I didn't get the pricing as we already had a car service arranged. Unfortunately, the Hampton doesn't have a Seatac to hotel shuttle.
  4. Crevice in Mead Glacier, AK.
  5. They do on Legend, so I would assume likewise on the other ships with the Blue Iguana.
  6. Yeah, Fantasy hasn't had a score that low since 1990! https://wwwn.cdc.gov/InspectionQueryTool/InspectionScoresAll.aspx?ColV=NzM3NA%3d%3d-JKvNsPKgZFE%3d
  7. The shrimp tacos are very, very good. They are not battered but rather (I suspect) are sauteed in some seasonings. They give you the taco sized tortilla with just the shrimp on it then you go to the salsa/condiments stations and add as much as you want - lettuce, cheese, sour cream, all types of sauce from mild to flames coming out your ears hot. ETA: I wish I had taken photos of them but was too busy eating them. I'm guessing someone on the board has a photo or two they will share however.
  8. Mead Glacier Alaska
  9. Carnival Legend Skagway AK via helicopter
  10. We saw several of them on cabin doors on our deck on Legend this past week. It was mostly used by the kids in the cabins and they hung dry erase markers on their mail slot for people to post messages and comments. I'm sure those kids (and drive by people who took the time to write something) had a good time with it.
  11. We saw a couple of those on the Legend this past week and I asked DW "why is that duck there?" She educated me on the activity, which I thought was a little strange but harmless and fun for some.
