On the dinning rotation, just have your TA or call DCL (if booked directly with DCL) after everyone in your group has booked excursions and ask that your group's cabins be linked for dinning. They will need all the reservation numbers and possibly the lead name on each as well.

Check out the website linked to in the first post, I will be putting any information on the alaska cruises that catches my eye in the news section. And if you have questions on any of the news posts, please send a comment and I will attempt to help out.

Thank you for the warm welcome and the tip on dining rotations. I'll make sure to tell hubby after everyone has booked.

I have already been peeking at the great links at the beginning of the post. Used the tip on flying to Seattle and taking the train. Flights to Canada were pretty expensive for my family of four.

I guess I haven't posted enough to PM for Roll call. We will be a family of four- me 40 at time of cruise, dh, ds 10 at cruise time and dd 7 + inlaws and friends if they can get eveything situated I think all total will be 10.

Has anyone had a chance to look at the excursions? Yikes..... $200 to $600 per person for the ones I took a quick peek at. I may have to put DrHug back to work to pay for them.

We are hoping to get a windfall soon....well, enough to book DGS Aaron with us anyway. That means to take 2 excursions for the 3 of us we will need a couple THOUSAND!!! Well, once...we will only do this once so I guess we should just suck it up and enjoy.

Happy New Year Everyone!

I have been MIA - too much work and too much holidays!

Right now we are trying to focus on our 2-13 Dream Cruise - it has been almost 3 years since our last cruise, so we are in serious withdrawal.

Will try to spend more time as time allows!

Yikes I was just looking at calendars and realizing I need to get to planning or figuring out what we are doing. I still haven't determined where we are staying, or flying in but I think I am still looking at Vancouver vs stateside and ferry or bus option. I just haven't determined airlines or availability (and cost but its Vancouver all more expensive unfortunately).

I am excited for your upcoming trip John. I'll live vicariously through you. I wish we could stowaway in your luggage on your trip but such is life we can't.

I hope everyone is well and has a Happy New Year!

For excursions I think we will look at Mendenhall Glacier by helicopter out of Juneau, White Pass Railway out of Skagway - we may do this on our own rather than thru DCL- and then just do Ketchikan exploring on our own. It looks like Ketchikan has a street trolley that we could use. Is anyone else looking yet at what they might be planning?

So far the only thing we have decided on is the White Pass Railway from Skagway. This weekend we are going to start looking at the other ports. We think we have decided to fly in and out of Vancouver and arrive on Saturday or Sunday to tour Vancouver before the cruise and return home the day we get off the ship. Still many decisions to be made. Looking forward to cruising with you again!

You too, Judy! We are pretty sure we will be driving over, just not sure if we will be in the RV or in the car. We have friends from here in Missoula that have decided to sail with us. A very nice couple. He loves Mickey Mouse and I cannot wait to see him interact with the REAL Mickey. He has not even been to DL or WDW. Converting one friend at a time.

The White Pass was a must for me, sigh.... I really wanted to see the immigration guy/gals face when they saw my passport go in and out of Canada 5+ times in one week, lol, and from one side of the country to the other.
