I'm hopping on the bus...I would walk but all that luggage will be to much of a pain

Seriously, there were a lot of people who did the train and fly this year and had a good experience so you might want to look at some trip reports from the Alaska cruises or look in the huge Vancouver thread to check out the ups and downs.

My best friend, his son and I are on this cruise, too. We'll be flying out of Seattle and had hoped to take the Amtrak down from Vancouver, but the trains are only very early in the morning (earlier than we debark the ship) or later in the afternoon for a rather late arrival in Seattle. In between, Amtrak just runs motorcoaches. After much deliberation, we decied we'd take an Amtrak motorcoach in the late morning and then stay in Seattle overnight and take in a Mariner's game (they're at home against the Rangers on 5/21), since my friend's son is a baseball fanatic. Then, we'll fly home Tuesday at a more leisurely pace.

This sounded like SUCH a good idea, but my spouse wasn't up to go back to back to back for a total of FOUR weeks, so sadly, after only a page, we're leaving this cruise - in favor of this great idea next year. B2B repo - Alaska! Thanks for the suggestion Hope you all have a FABULOUS journey!

Ok..time to start getting serious here - the holidays are almost over and the cruise is coming quickly!

Secret Mickey sign-up info will be out soon. The deadline to sign up will be February 10th with the emails going out by February 14th .

Please do not shop for your SM until you know who you have. Gifts that do not match thier likes are no fun .

FE sign-ups will have a deadline of February 14th as well to allow everyone time to come up with thier ideas.

Getting excited!

A Secret Mickey is like a "Secret Santa" You sign up and answer questions about like/dislikes etc.. then you are assigned a fellow passenger as someone is assigned you.

You then purchase 3-4 gifts for them which total about $25. You leave the gifts for them at thier stateroom without revealing yourself until the final sea day where we will all meet and have a reveal.

It is a lot of fun!

Oops, forgot one thing. I lived in the bay area for many years, I can point you towards some of the best food in the city, especially if you like amazingly delicious but hole in the wall Mexican food type places. It is even right on the BART line for easy access. The main thing you need to do in SF is the cable car, there is nothing like it in the world!

twindaddy sorry you won't be able to join after all!

Do we have an updated list of who all is going to be onboard? Now that we are into 2012 this just seems so much closer

We are still going!

We have been looking at our flights for Anaheim. I managed to snag a retro rate at the HoJo in Anaheim for the weekend before the cruise (because of that, I splurged on the Disney view room) so that is done. Once the flight is booked, I will be so excited for Disneyland and the cruise. Just over four months to go!!!!!

I have been trying to keep the first page updated as people drop/add and let me know. Next month I will start getting confirmations from everyone and firming up the list.

Getting close now!

I think we will end up at the Hojo's the weekend before as well. Hmmm maybe I should book now before the retro rate disappears!

Yes, we were hemming and hawing about staying a bit closer, but that retro rate is hard to beat. Plus, we love the HoJo.

Getting excited! I've booked the Hojo's for 5 nights pre-cruise (love the Retro Rate!) and have booked the airfare to LA thanks to a primo seat sale.
