  1. 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
  2. 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
  3. 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
  4. 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"!!!
  5. 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
  6. 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!
  7. 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 ☺️
  8. 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
  9. Many newer diffusers and humidifiers are "ultrasonic"!! They do not heat the liquid whether it is an oil or just water!
  10. Do you have a specific cabin number?? If you do I suggest you look above and below it on the deck plan! This way you may be able to avoid noise and crew/service areas. I have been on the Regal, Royal's sister ship in a deck 14 midships cabin that was quiet and calm which made for a great cruise! Good luck with your decision! Whitetrike
  11. Here is another excursion for you to look over....https://wpyr.com/ White Pass scenic railway is a narrow gauge rail trip that follows some of the "gold rush" era trails up an impressive mountain. My wife and I will be doing this outing in late May, I sure hope the weather cooperates as I expect some world class scenery!! Whitetrike
  12. On the Regal Princess in November last year DW and I had an unlimited minutes package for up to 4 devices. The first day service was "off-and-on". From day two onward service was always available. Our total cost was $59.99. As others have mentioned there is wide variation in packages, costs, and sometimes service levels from ship to ship and location to location! Whitetrike
  13. My wife and I will be doing our first cruise to Alaska in May. Our port days will be in Skagway, Ketchikan, and Juneau. The cruise ends in Anchorage! Are there any restaurants in these cities that serve "real" Alaskan foods like bear, moose and caribou. They would be most interesting additions to our lists of exotic food eaten on our travels! We'd be interested hearing about experiences and/or suggestions! Thanks! Whitetrike
  14. Sailed on the regal in early November with a prepaid package for up to 4 devices with UNLIMITED minutes!! Was great when the internet itself was running right. The first day and a half out of FLL it was hit and miss! We have a Royal cruise to Alaska booked for late May, all that is available now is up to 600 minutes. TA from Princess told me to wait until closer to sailing to book any package as the line may add new options. Sure hope they do just that!
  15. Was having "Technical Difficulties" most of the afternoon yesterday too!😡
