  1. Just finished that cruise on June 1st...was very happy to have been in a starboard balcony stateroom. The scenery is spectacular! So much so we didn't turn the television on the entire cruise! Enjoy your cruise!! Whitetrike
  2. My wife and I sailed on the Regal on 11 November last year which was Veterans Day. They had a moving tribute program in the theater which honored all branches of ALL nations that were involved in war over the last 100years! There was also a get-together with a champagne toast for ALL Veterans of ALL services from ALL nations that was a lot of fun as each of us introduced ourselves, our service branch and era served! Does anyone who is familiar with Princess celebrations know of a Memorial Day observance on board their ships at sea on the 27th! Regards, Whitetrike
  3. This is a second posting of my question as I'm not sure what response I'd get on FB!!! DW and I board the Royal on Saturday for our Alaska cruise!! In all the reading I've done about the Ocean Medallion I have not seen IF it is "water-proof" or "water-resistant! We do plan to use the hot tubs and maybe even the pools and want a functional medallion afterward! Is it safe to wear the medallion while hot tubing or swimming?? Best Regards, Whitetrike
  4. Thanks for your response XBGuy. What you mentioned is similar to how I plan to dress. My wife however may require heavier"cold weather" clothes as she doesn't usually enjoy cooler temperatures!! It looks like the weather will be warmish the week we're in Alaska with daytime temperatures forecast into the low 60s. I'm looking forward to that!
  5. My wife and I will be boarding the Royal on the 25th for our first Alaska cruise!!! Can't wait to get started. Along that line, I'd like to ask if anyone on board now would be kind enough to post the Patters here so those of us yet to cruise could get some idea of what we can look forward to! I much appreciate the effort and time it would take to do this! Kind regards, Whitetrike
  6. DW and I are starting to gather clothes to pack for our May 25th cruise on the Royal to Alaska. The question of the temperature in public areas of the ship such as dining rooms and theater came up. We are not usually bothered by feeling cool or cold in most situations. Is a long sleeved shirt or light jacket usually needed while away from your cabin while aboard?
  7. Here is a link to a site that I found most educational in looking for information about Alaska: http://www.alaska.org/expert-advice/weather-climate
  8. I've had difficulty with the Ocean Ready app like you!! I was able to get in touch with the Princess Ocean Navigators by phone to learn exactly when and how I could get signed up. If you want to get correct information their contact phone number is 1-844-525-0942! I am not sure they are available on weekends. Regards, Whitetrike
  9. Most of the sites I've looked for Skagway excursions on mention how "walkable" the area around the cruise port is! My wife and I have the White Pass rail trip scheduled for late May....but we're hoping there is time left afterwards to walk the area near the cruise port! Have a great trip, whatever you decide to do in Skagway! Whitetrike
  10. I'm booked on the May 25th Royal Princess cruise to Alaska. I've tried three times to get "Ocean Ready" to no avail. After spending 30+ minutes on the phone with a Princess TA and an Ocean Ready "specialist" i was still unable to log into the Ocean Ready app! Here is the email response I got tonight from the Ocean Ready Navigator Support crew: Good afternoon, Thank you for contacting Princess Cruises regarding the issue you encountered with our OceanReady App. While we can confirm that the Royal Princess will be 100% a MedallionClass ship at the time of your sailing, unfortunately your voyage hasn’t been entered into our OceanReady systems yet. Once we load the information we will send out an email with an invitation to become OceanReady. Once you receive that email, feel free to login to your account and add the reservation. This update SHOULD answer many questions for those booked on the Royal Princess and maybe other Princess ships having difficulty getting "Ocean Ready"!!!
  11. My wife and I are really hooked on the Club Class Mini Suite concept that Princess Cruises has!! We've taken one cruise on the Regal and have an Alaska cruise booked for May on the Royal! My question is about the other cruise lines. Do any of you experienced cruisers know if any other lines have similar programs? We especially enjoy/need the priority boarding/debarkation and the Club Class dining room! We also like the larger cabins with their balconies. Any information or comments will be appreciated! Regards, Whitetrike
  12. I too was on the Regal in November (11th), they did have a yoga class scheduled but cancelled due to only 2 signing up! 😡 I may have to think about doing my own "on-deck" yoga session if the early morning weather is warm enough! Thanks for your comments!
  13. I'll be taking my first Royal cruise in May to Alaska. I have started a wellness program of yoga and meditation I would like to continue while on board. I can not find any schedule of either yoga or meditation classes. Does anyone have knowledge of recent offerings or suggestions where I can look to find this information! Thank you for your input! Whitetrike ☺️
  14. Here is the website I have used in the past to research digital cameras! There is more than enough information for you to make an educated decision on what best fits your needs! https://www.opticsplanet.com/s/digital-cameras As suggested by others, I highly recommend becoming comfortable in using the new camera! Happy Hunting, Whitetrike
  15. Many newer diffusers and humidifiers are "ultrasonic"!! They do not heat the liquid whether it is an oil or just water!
