    Birthday Info

    I went in to my profile and the birthday is very wrong. I tried to edit it but it won't change. What should I do?

    Photos Required?

    As I read what others have written I'm confused. They said they needed to upload a photo but I can't find that request on my reservation. Could someone explain it to me? Joyce

    Help needed choosing a ship

    Another vote for Coral.. We board her July 18th!
  4. I have enjoyed reading along. In 2013 we took off the beaten track and found it expensive to buy meals and excursions like the Music of Denali dinner theater. So on July 18th we leave for a 13 day Connoisseur tour that starts in Fairbanks. I hope we are lucky enough to get Michael, He sounds amazing. Please let us know how the cruise went! Joyce

    gbits: If I were to call Paul would I have to tip him? We are leaving for Fairbanks 7/18. Thanks! Joyce

    Thanks for posting the bar menu. We leave for Alaska in two weeks and now I'm craving a Molten Glacier!

    Good choice? Or bad?

    We are sailing on the Coral July 25th. Our cabin is A518 on the Aloha deck. Saw that it is under the Lotus spa pool. How much noise will there be? Also, evening or early morning noise? Thanks!

    Best port for T-shirt’s/fleece

    In 2013 we were cruising Southbound. So I was saving my shopping for Ketchikan. Imagine my dismay when our ship bypassed Ketchikan due to bad weather! As that was our last port I ended up using the ship's gift shop. Hoping this year we get to stop in Ketchikan. Joyce

    Book our first princess cruise!!!

    We are diamond plus on RCCL and I can tell you from experience that Princess does a better job! Sad that we only got the Sip and Sail promo. Would have liked prepaid grats. But looking forward to our upcoming cruise on Coral. Joyce

    Alaska Cruisetour Suggestions

    Four years ago we did a cruisetour that started in Anchorage. We paid for our meals. This year we are going to Fairbanks first and then 4 nights in the Denali area. We chose the cruisetour that has a tour guide and most meals are included.(PB6) Princess does a wonderful job. Whichever one you choose you won't be disappointed. Joyce
  13. Meals in the Capt. Cook can be pricey. Go past the front desk and out the side door. There is a coffee shop across the street on the corner that is inexpensive. This was in 2013, I don't know if it's still there. Good luck!
  14. We are arriving in Fairbanks on July 18th. Land before cruise. Probably won't post while on board but will post when we get home. Did this same cruisetour in 2013 and it rained for two weeks. Cross your fingers that we get better weather this time. Joyce

    Coral Princess

    After reading all the replies I'm now super excited to be on the Coral. When I first made the reservation I randomly chose the Coral. Now I'm glad I did!
