Brack, at least it is due to the location and not the weather.

One month from today!

Hi all! One month from today we sail! I'm so excited I can hardly stand it! I'm going to help pass the time by working on one of my fish extender gifts at the Best Western the next couple of days. My daughter has to go to freshman orientation for college and I'm staying there while she does her thing. I just need to figure out how to get me through the other 28 days until we sail! Any other ideas on how to make the time pass?

I saw today from DCL that the return Transatlantic on September 10th had fares for as low as $799!! No way that we can go though.

Balcony vs. Deck Chair - View in AK

Another question for the group -

I'm reading on the main forum about "photographer's tips" and ideas about where to scurry and reserve places for Tracy Arm, etc.

We have a balcony on deck 8, and while we realize that we're limited to one deck side, is there a huge reason we want to play the Disney "polite but firm" line game and reserve stuff hours in advance?

What does everyone think?

If it is anything like the PC cruises you have to be out early in the morning and don't leave that spot. If you leave a towel, book, shoe, whatever in your place, don't expect that spot to be there when you return. If you have a balcony I would not worry about it.

That is because the airfare to get there is so high!

That is just insanity, IMHO. Just be patient, we will be sailing thru it the whole day and you will get a chance to see it. We bought into the insanity on the PC cruise, but after a few minutes we learned that we really did not have to be at the very front of the ship to see the canal...it was all around us. We started walking the deck and seeing it from lots of angles and staying away from the crowds. We even went and took a nap around 10 am and still have several thousand photos going thru the canal.

I don't plan on "fighting" anyone for photos. I am sure that I will be able to get more than enough photos from this trip.

En route home now!

Must cut back on luggage though - 11 suitcases, two cats, and a dog!

Hope to be able to make it to Alaska with only 4, but will be hard since we are traveling to San Antonio, Disneyland, and Seattle en route. Does anyone know if it's possible to ship a suitcase home for a reasonable fee? Would love to dump lots of the shorts, etc. after Disney.

No way kids are going to let us hang out on deck all day - so reserving a spot will not be an option for us. I'm sure we'll get awesome views regardless.

See y'all soon!!!!

I know that we are 4 weeks and a wake-up from getting on the Wonder but ..... does anyone have plans to book their next cruise on board? If so, do you have any dates in mind?
