Apparently I will not be able to look at or book any excursions until after July 2nd. Bummer, I was looking forward to seeing what else was available, ect.
In the meantime, looks like I will be reading all 89 pages of this post!
Thank you EVERYBODY!
You can look at excursions, just be aware that not every excursion listed is available on every cruise....don't do it from your reservation, go to ships and destinations and then to port excursions......

So this may not be a secret but we always like to book in the aft and ONLY use the aft elevators when we can. At peak times it's never crowded like the mid ship elevators are. If we need to get to the other end of the ship quickly, we walk the length of our hallway all the way to the forward elevators and then go to the floor we need that way. There is much less traffic to deal with on the stateroom floors and easier to push strollers.

Is the OBC for use on the current cruise or for the future cruise you booked?

This has changed. You can keep your pirate garb at home.
There is no Pirate Night in Alaska for 2013.

It's now a "Pixar Party" with your favorite Pixar Characters. It will take place in the Atrium on Deck 3, Midship. The characters and everyone will sing "You've Got A Friend In Me".

Don't know if this has been mentioned but you can watch disney movies on demand in your stateroom at night. I have boys ans don't know that I've ever actually watched all of Beauty and the Beast but I have now thanks to this .

When you say "on demand", is it an extra charge?
