B2b question and Aqua cabin on the Millennium?

Recommended Posts

Hi, I have just booked the new Alaska sailing on the 30th April on the Millennium to replace our cancelled Asia cruise! Booked Aqua for the first time as same price as a balcony? Booked deck 11 1114? Can't find much about this cabin other than no over hang on the balcony? Is this a bad idea? Hubby didn't like the look of the large over hang on deck 9? 

 

Also if we book the 5 night cruise before ours to join up and we book the same cabin, can we just stay there or do we have to disembark? Never done it before? Do they link it?

 

Oh and can you change you cabin online? Booked X direct on the U.S. website?

 

Many thanks!

Not knowledgeable of that cabin, but it is above the Oceanview buffet area.....

 

As to a B2B, love them and done them more than a few times. It’s great to have the same cabin and stay right there, making Seattle just another ‘port of call’, except as a US port, you will have to leave the ship to go through customs and then return when they start normal boarding. Not a real issue. The ship will gather you with others who are B2B, and walk you off. You won’t be going through check in again, they will give you new cards on the ship (your previous cruise charges will be closed as will the OBC from that) and you’ll have a new on board charge set up. 

 

You can go explore Seattle, walk over to Pike’s Place or take a ship tour or your own.

 

When you get back, you’ll go through port security and show your card and walk right on.

 

Enjoy!

You will receive an invitation to a consecutive cruises (B2B cruisers) meeting a day or two prior to your TAD. The whole TAD process will be explained in detail at that time. Also you will receive in your stateroom a detailed letter outlining the whole TAD process for your cruise including where to meet, what time to meet and what to bring with you. All our B2B cruises have been very well organized. You will also receive an invitation to a consecutive cruisers lunch held in the MDR on your TAD.

I read that cabins 1116 and 1118 have a slightly larger balcony because of the shape of the ship. Unfortunately I can’t speak to that personally because we had 1116 booked for our cancelled Asian cruise. Sigh

Oh that's a shame ☹ hope you get something else sorted.

We've been in 1106 and 1108 both have a little larger balcony as it is over the curved window section of the buffet.  Loved the location right near the rear stairs to the back of the buffet.   Also there is a B2B discount you have to ask for when booking consecutive sailings.  I don't think you would get anything for the 5 day as it has to be at least 7 days, but is the other one 11 days then it would be $100 off of that one.
