  1. Has anyone visited the Gardens recently? I was there in 2001; they were fantastic. I'd like to visit them again this year, but have not seen them mentioned on this forum. Any updates or thoughts? Could I visit them before or after Mendenhall Glacier? Thanks!
  2. I just "discovered" this show too. I really enjoy it (I'm nearly 75).
  3. RE: taxi fares Is that $35.00 per person or per taxi?
  4. First cruise to Alaska? Definitely consider an itinerary that includes Glacier Bay! I'm doing my 5th Alaska cruise (Ruby Princess) in Sept. I'd planned to change things a bit & not go to Glacier Bay, but my adult kids (their 2nd time) quickly VETOED that idea. Back to the Bay!
  5. Also consider: can the scooter turn from the hallway into/out of the cabin? Scooters are a bit like semi-trucks -- they need a bigger turning radius (as I learned the hard way).
  6. Sorry for the double post -- can't get it to DELETE!
  7. I fly into LAX about noon on 4/10. I need to get to the hotel in San Pedro for my 4/11 cruise. I am an senior w/mobility issues & I'll be traveling solo. I'll have wheelchair assistance from the arrival gate to baggage claim. I plan to book a car service for LAX to San Pedro. I've read that "ride share" vehicles aren't allowed to pick-up at the terminal & that pax must use a shuttle to get to the ride share area. How does this work for handicapped and/or seniors? I know that I cannot get my bags, my rollator/walker & myself onto a shuttle. Yes, I'll post this on the West Coast page too. Thanks!

  10. This itinerary is actually two 7-day cruises put together, known as a B2B -- back to back). You could book either 7-day cruise (N from Vancouver to Whitter or the reverse) & still do several days "inland" in Anchorage, Denali, etc. If you're not already working w/an experienced travel agent, please consider doing so! Your trip will not cost anymore (TAs get a commission from the booked cruise line) & will save you LOTS of second guessing/headaches. [No, I'm not a TA; I'm just preparing for my 5th trip to Alaska -- all w/cruise, 2 w/land tour). Alaska is one of the greatest sights on earth; see as much as you can!

    Were you in the panhandle (Juneau, Skagway, etc.) or inland (Anchorage or Fairbanks) when you saw the aurora? I'll be cruising the panhandle Sept. 12-19; no inland.
  12. Yep, as usual, it's LAYERING -- warm to cool, cool to warm. Include a light jacket or 2 for windy days at sea & a water resistant wind breaker for rainy days (land or sea). And always take comfortable, sturdy walking shoes. I always take a swim suit too. ENJOY!
  13. I too can walk -- for very short distances & for short steps as at the Regal's Retreat pool. However, I've had 4 different joint replacements & absolutely cannot manage the 90* pool-side ladders to exit a pool. Obviously, those of us who are physically disabled in some way aren't overly welcome on the Sky Princess.
  14. No offense, folks, but I did NOT ask about football! In fact, one reason I cruise is to get away from ALL pro-sports! PLEASE do not hijack a thread for totally unrelated remarks.
  15. Thanks to both of you! I certainly don't understand why Princess dropped the Retreat pool model as used on the Regal/Royal. I wonder what that does (if anything) to ADA compliance in US ports. I shall cancel my Sky booking. At least I only lose my $1.00 deposit.
