Thumbs up We are going!

We booked on opening day for Golds-Plat...yesterday.

It will be me, my husband, plus our daughter will be 13 at the time...and our son 8. Yikes. Sounds so old.

We have never been to Alaska and are very much looking forward to it. We are total beach and swimming/water people so this will be a radical departure for us. The first thing my DD asked is would she be able to swim on the ship. Hope they can. It will be so odd not having warm weather and beaches.

Glad to have it booked, although it is far away. We will be in a SPH cabin on deck 5.

We are warm weather cruisers too. I loooove a warm beach and a drink in my hand. This will be different! I know my DS will probably swim- he swam on our MR cruise on sailaway day, when it was definitely cold and raining! My kids love science and nature though so I think this will be fun for them.

I know what you mean about them getting old- they are 11/14 now but will BOTH be teens by the time the cruise rolls around. Yikes is right. They were 8 and 11 on our first DCL cruise!

We're in too! We just sent in the deposit for DH, Me, and dd's 11/8 at that time (wow!)......

Can't wait to see a totally different set of ports and to be back on the Wonder again!


We went to dinner with my parents tonight and I had a whole proposal planned to talk them into coming with us....didn't need it, within 5 minutes they were in too! Just sent off a request to book their room.....

We did the EBTA with them on the Magic in 2010 and had a blast!! So excited to see something so different and to experience it with the whole gang in tow!

I've very excited that DCL is going to Alaska again, because I get to go this time! The Wonder was my first cruise ever when DD was only 9 months. We are going on the Fantasy this year with my mother and hope to talk her into joining us for Alaska also. I'm torn between a SPH and a 7A but right now I have the 7A reserved (if I go with the 10A, I'll probably switch to the 6/17 cruise so we can be on board for our birthdays). DD will be nearly 6 and we may be spending some time in the room.

For those of you deciding between inside vs. porthole, consider the fact that the sun may not set until 10p and may rise by 4am!

The porthole rooms (even with the curtains) may throw sleep patterns off....not a reason not to pick them, but perhaps a good reason to go with an inside cabin if you are on the fence!

Hi Melly,
I thought I recognized your names! I remember them from making the luggage tags for the FE. That was a fun cruise! Looking forward to Alaska!

I had not thought about the weird sun rise & sun set times. We have a 10a sph cabin. I wonder if we should downgrade. I'm so excited about this trip I've already started looking at excursions and boy are they expensive. They look awesome though.

Welcome to all the cruisers!!!

My inlaws have done Alaska in June before on NCL. I asked about the late sunsets, and they said it didn't bother them at all. They are early to bed folks so if it was going to bother anyone it would be them I would think. So relax and enjoy the view! You can always pull the curtains closed if the sun wakes you early.
