  1. The problem is that what once was tipping is now turning into for lack of a better term a service charge. A tip is supposed to be a recompense for good service. When they add it on the bill by default or by law you have to pay it, it is no longer a tip. The problem is that most places it is « expected » you leave a tip regardless of the service quality.
  2. Just checking on how people tip on the land tours? I think I have an idea but thought i would ask. Restauants Porters Hotel maids Tour guides and the bus drivers etc
  3. one of the biggest advantages for FCCs i can see is only paying $100 US$ per person to reserve your cruise instead of 10% of the value and the deposit is fully refundable.
  4. are the cruise lines not running the trains from seward directly to the airport station anymore?
  5. when we did our panama cruise on coral we had C622 bumpout and loved it, great views forward and to the side
  6. one 750 ml bottle of wine per person per segment
  7. 1. you are flying Vancouver to Toronto to Philidelphia, this means you are doing US customs in toronto.... 2. Taxi to airport is about 35 mins, or the canada line with walk will get you to the terminal in about 60 mins. it is doable if you walk off with the first groups, clear Canadian customs at the cruiseport and get on your way to airport.
  8. I highly recommend the train as I travel regularly on that line, comfortable and excellent service. Business class includes meal and drinks, comfort class the attendant comes by with food and drinks for sale. I do not recommend driving downtown Montreal as it is construction season. As stated a few trains a day travelling from Quebec city to Ottawa make a stop in Montreal Central station then carry on with the next stop being Dorval airport (YUL). These are intercity trains not commuter trains. https://www.viarail.ca/sites/all/files/media/pdfs/schedules/winter2018/06-07_Quebec-SainteFoy-Montreal-Ottawa.pdf https://www.viarail.ca/en/explore-our-destinations/trains/ontario-and-quebec/montreal-quebec-city https://www.viarail.ca/en/explore-our-destinations/ontario-and-quebec/ottawa-quebec-city
  9. Can people who just recently did the Alaska cruises report on the onboard internet experiences for all ships, medallion net or other. Please indicate ship and whether it was fast or slow, or not working well at all.
  10. the issue with this is you will get whatever seats are left on a last minute flight, if you were in economy anyway it might not be a big issue but if you booked business and none are left......
  11. https://www.cnn.com/2019/06/29/business/boeing-737-max-outlook/index.html could be a while before they fly again
  12. can you maybe get het to do a review and post it here?
  13. Has anyone done the Hubbard Glacier & wilderness tour in the cruise personalizer? Just wondering if you get a better view of the glacier and if it is worth it?
