  1. I always have a list of what to pack, passport is the only thing on the list twice. First and last
  2. A friend told us to pack layers and we did. The outside layer was a lightweight water and wind proof light jacket. Glad I had the waterproof jacket in Ketchikan, it is a rain forest area
  3. We went on deck at the bow while in Glacier Bay. Great view from there and the bonus was that was where the park ranger was and she added a lot of interesting information
  4. Not sure, we booked through HAL but it was a small boat, about 12-15 people. It was great being on a smaller boat as we got very close, within 15-20 feet at one point
  5. Last year we took an excursion that first went to Mendenhall then a whale watch. It was fantastic, one of the highlights of the trip
  6. Our experience in AK was that the days we were in port we typically did some excursions and didn't return back to the ship in time for our assigned dining time. On those evenings we met some new folks and our original table mates were very understanding. Go with the flow
  7. Found a dayroom at a hotel, the B Ocean. Looks nice, beach, pool, restaurants. Nice place to relax and it's only $100
  8. I had the same opinion of the rib eye in the PG. Never again
  9. Going to FLL from New England in March we fly in the day before the cruise and get a hotel for a night. To many weather concerns to try to fly in the day of the cruise
  10. For those of us not driving to the port going out of the area for lunch isn't as practical. We are on NS leaving on March 3, 2019. Our boarding passes say board at 1:00 PM. Checkout at our hotel is 11:00 AM. Since hotel is near port, it's not going to be a 2 hour trip so we end up waiting somewhere. Seems the easiest thing to do is leave hotel around 11 and get to the port when we get there, which will be early, and hope for the best
  11. As I was reading some of the posts about clam chowder in FL all I could think about was Billy's chowder house in Wells ME. Love clam chowder but rarely order it out of New England
  12. That was the case with us on HAL in Alaska last July. Just ask, I never heard anyone say no
