  1. Thank you - that's very helpful. I'll skip.
  2. DS 17 has a fear of heights. I'm pretty sure the Yukon Suspension Bridge will be out. Does the bridge sway when folks are walking across? I would assume so. About how long is the walk across and back? Maybe I'd walk over and leave him on solid land. Thanks.
  3. Congratulations!!! I've been battling mucosal melanoma for a year and booked a 8/20 Alaska cruise (our 1st cruise). Your wife is brave. Bravo to you, too! I know it's a scary journey. You inspired me to consider something more adventurous than a whale watch!!! Now to convince DS17 & spouse! I think we'll skip the zip-line though, lol!
  4. I had the same savings - $200 OBC & same gratuities. However our suite went up. So total savings, after taxes, etc was $167. Savings are savings!
  5. Just reading this and it makes sense (we’ve just booked our 1st cruise). So about 20 min to change bedding, etc & clean/vacuum/sterilize a cabin? That doesn’t seem possible to get it clean in that amount of time. I’m packing wipes, lol!
  6. I’m scared of this, too, having never cruised. I booked us on an Alaska Inner Passage Cruise August 2020, midship, because the ship doesn’t sail on open waters. It’s protected. I haven’t had an attack since 5/18. I cut out caffeine 100%. My last few attacks were after less than 1/2 cup of coffee. I keep my salt even throughout the day & zero alcohol. I never drank much but had an attack after less than a 1/2 glass of white wine so that’s out. Good luck!
  7. I posted earlier that I did transfer to a TA earlier tonight. She gave me $950 in OBC/cash card and a coupon book. We are in a suite so our 1st night specialty meals will be included. Thanks!
  8. Transferred to a TA and received $950 OBC/cash card (my choice of how to split it). That's great and I'll keep an eye out for what your described above, Coral. Thank you.
  9. Thanks! I think we have some special dinner 1st night because we booked a suite but will check it out. I wish we could move it to this August, instead of 2020!
  10. I am embarrassed to report that I made a newbie error. Customer Service just called to tell me the $900 OBC was really a coupon book, worth up to $900. Big mistake on my part. Maybe there will be something in there we can use. Thank you all for your help.
  11. Great advice. I wish I’d known when I booked but will do that in future. Thx
  12. Thrak, I remember what you wrote in another post I had. I plan to move over to them but wanted to do that with the Princess OBC so I could get as much as I can as they said they'd add to it. It was a.lot.
  13. Yes, the current one is $250 off airfare and $300 per the suite cost. ($150 pp)
  14. Hello, I did see that but it doesn't look like it extends to our August 2020 cruise. Would you explain to me how you received $1,200 OBC if the promo offers up to $600? Was that because your agent accepted the Princess OBC and offered their own on top of that? Thank you.
