Ashley, just wanted to let you know that I recently shared your video with our boys (ages 5, 12 and 13) and we all love it!!! Jeremy is their kind of guy! (We're the family with the three boys who make the "awesome face" for every photo I take and, therefore, have an expression quite like Jeremy's in pictures!) I think we'll be doing a little Ashley and Jeremy dancing of our own during the sail away party next Monday! And our middle son is a baseball player and huge baseball fan - so love the "Centerfield." I'm still trying to convince our 13-year-old avid vinylmation collector that there will not be Vinylmation FE gifts on our cruise. His response: "Will they [Ashley and Jeremy] ever be on one of our cruises?" Thanks again for this wonderful report (we keep returning to it to check on menus, Navigators, etc.) I really appreciate all the helpful information and have enjoyed getting to know both of you!

Thank you so much for such a lovely (and thorough! LOVED having the Navigators & Menus as well as food pics) TR! We just booked this cruise for next year (out of Vancouver - we live nearby) and wanted to get an idea of what to expect.

Also thank you SO much for the Seattle info! I've been wanting to do the Savor Seattle tours for years and this gives me the kick in the butt to try & do it (DH has a conference in Seattle for a week in October, so DS & I will tag along). If they won't let DS go (he's pretty little still), I at least know where to visit now

Just spent the last couple of hours reading your TR. I loved it! The pictures are great, and I would love to do the Alaska cruise someday (as the nature looks beautiful).

Signing on to read from beginning to end. Just booked our first Alaska cruise and we are from North Carolina, too, so I am tagging along to see what I can learn.

Thoroughly enjoyed your report

And if I didn't learn anything else, I learned that I must hit the ladies room before heading into port.

Thanks for sharing your trip.

Just found your TR - loved it! Despite all the "no's" in the title, it looks like you still had a fabulous time.

Also, - your Limited Edition Vinylmation FE Gifts are awesome!

Thanks for the TR! We are going in June and my girls got so excited watching your video (about 5 times in a row!). Thanks for taking the time to do it!

I really enjoyed your trip report! It seems like a 7 day cruise really just flies by! We booked the Alaska cruise for Aug. 2014. I learned so much by reading your experiences! Thank you for taking the time to share!

I've really enjoyed your trip report, we're going to Alaska in August and you've made me even more excited for it (is it possible?) - thank you for sharing.

Thank you so much for the TR, your details and photos were excellent! DH says 2 Bahamas cruises are enough, time to see another part of the world, I am convinced Alaska should be next!

Loved your TR and all the detail you put into it! Thank you so much for taking the time to post it, reading it has been very helpful to me. We don't go on our next cruise until next year and are planning on booking Alaska while on board. I had to start a planning document today to add all of the tips I learned from your TR although I feel sort of silly since it's so far off. Anyway, thanks again!

Another poster coming around to say thank you for an awesome trip report!! I had read this months ago and bookmarked it and your report was one of a few that really inspired my decision to book Alaska. We initially were booked to go 6/14 then moved it to 6/13 so we sailed 6/17/13-6/24/13. I was going through your pictures to compare (even though we sailed from Vancouver) and what a nice surprise and touching moment when I saw you also had Tricia for your asst. server! We fell in love with her and really bonded and our experience with her was a highlight of the cruise for us. We had a different server (Bahadir from Turkey) and he was awesome too, but not like Tricia! They had both been on the ship since January and were heading home for 8-9 weeks of vacation the day we disembarked and she was so excited.

Thanks again,
Heather
