Congrats, you guys! That is really good news.

Heather, I like your thoughts about your DS being settled in the kds' club by the last day.

I have two weeks until I can book. Can you check the times on these three excursions:

Skagway - Dog Sled Musher's Camp

Juneau - Mendenhall Glacier and Whale Watching

Ketchikan - Lumberjack Show

What PAT did you get?

I asked my DH and DS and I know they'd really enjoy it after the fact, however they both seem to just want to hang out in port and sort of take it easy and not over schedule anything. I did confirm our White Rail Pass & Suspension Bridge tour at 715am in Skagway and then we'll do the Mt. Roberts tramway on our own in Juneau and then in Ketchikan I did pick the Exclusive Great Alaskan Lumberjack Show. It sounds cheesy (love your description ) but I read such favorable reviews. This is the one we are on the fence about so we'll see. I can cancel before we make the journey if needed. What else did you confirm? I'm glad you're happy too

For anyone else that would like for me to check times for the excursions or prices, etc, please let me know and I'd be glad to do so.

Heather
Oh I'm so glad you got everything you wanted
We are doing the Palo brunch on the last sea day as well!
We're also on the 7:15am White Pass Train, but we are doing the Trail Camp on the way back down as we are going to be visiting the Capilano Suspension Bridge in Vancouver and we are trying not to double up with so many interesting things to choose from
We are going dog sledding on the Mendenhall Glacier in Juneau and I can't tell you how excited we are about that
And finally - an 11am PAT
My spreadsheet is nearly complete !!

Not sure if there are any Canadians sailing with us, however they just posted a special 25% of select sailings May 27 - June 17, (code CAN) which obviously includes are sailing!! OMG - I wish I could get 25% off what we paid so I wonder if they'd allow any of us that booked and PIF already to get some type of discount? I'm not complaining promise, as I know that's what DCL does to get more people on board but gosh, a little bit of a refund, anything would be nice!! Technically we used our 10% OBB discount, but 15% off would be a nice chunk on our 7A!

I might just call Costco (to call DCL) and see what they say....

If anyone else does or finds out more info, please let me know and to any Canadians that might have booked with us, I'd hope you'd at least get something back if you called!

Heather

UPDATE: I just called - figured why not - and the answer was no. They will require proof of citizenship to qualify. I knew the chances were slim but also knew it'd make me nuts if I didn't at least try. Perhaps they will offer a KSF if this promo doesn't go well or others we *might* be able to apply later.

We might just bump into you a few times then I'm still on the fence about visiting Mendenhall Glacier somehow, someway. I might do more research and see if there is an economical way just to walk around near the area for pictures of it in the background.

When are you guys arriving in Vancouver? We are coming in Sat around lunch so we hope to explore some as well. I was researching last night places to eat near the hotel and get some ideas because I've read and I've seen, it's quite expensive!

I know that there is a bus that runs down to Mendenhall from the dock that's pretty inexpensive - might be worth looking into that
Trouble is there are so many amazing things to see and do that it's hard to narrow it down!
We arrive in Vancouver on the Thursday before the cruise, so we have four nights in the city to enjoy before we set sail
We are heading to Victoria one day ..... So exciting!!
Take a look at Trip Advisor and Urban Spoon for Vancouver restaurant reviews, there are plenty of inexpensive places that sound great, but then again I am so used to London prices I don't think they look too bad!!

When I asked the shoreside concierge, they said night 2 (June 18th) is formal night and night 6 (June 22nd) is semi-formal.

I have an 11 year old DD if you are interested. Since we are so new to the board I cannot send you a private message.

Cool. My daughter Delaney will be almost 11 (2 months shy) at the start of the cruise. She already tends to hang out with older kids -- her best friend is 12. One of her cousins, Jordan, who is 11 will be on the cruise with us so we're going to try to get my DD into Edge so they can hang out together. I'm sure my DD would also like to find other girls to hang out with.

Hi everyone

Well it's snowing in our little corner of England today so we are thinking of practicing for our dog sledging excursion down in the park!

Looks like we are going to be house bound today so I think it's a good time to start writing my packing list

Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend

Lx
