I loved our Navigator's Verandah stateroom - it was everything I wanted it to be.

The only noise we had one night was a very loud woman knocking loudly on the door opposite us and screaming loudly telling the family inside to be quiet - we hadn't heard a thing - she was louder than anything else!

Another video. I was lucky enough to be back in Vancouver this week so found myself down at Canada Place to watch the Disney Wonder arrive

Thank you for your kind words - thankfully a Gorillapod tripod and iMovie work wonders

Thank you so much for posting all of these. They are fantastic!

You mentioned in another trip report that you had many character photos taken on Tracy Arm day. Did you see the characters on a certain deck or during a specific time?

Thank you!

I was just wandering around an empty deck 4 (deck 10 was ridiculously busy) and I got the photos with the characters.

Thank you for sharing your videos with us, watching them is really building my excitement for our upcoming Alaska cruise!

I hope you don't mind, but I have a few questions...

1. Did you use a video camera or were the videos taken on a regular digital camera?

2. Did you find it difficult trying to film and take pictures throughout your cruise? (I will be trying to do both!)

3. Where did you spend your time on Tracy Arm day? I'm thinking we'll be better off not tying ourselves to one spot, instead moving around the ship. I like the idea of deck 4.

4. Finally, did your gorillapod work ok? I've just ordered one and am terrified that it will go overboard if I attach it to the ship's railings!

Thanks again!

1. I used a Canon Powershot S95 for all my videos - I have used a video camera before but prefer to use a digital camera as it's so much more user friendly.

2. Wasn't difficult to do both as I also own a Canon Powershot S110 which I use for taking photos. If I wanted to use both at the same time ie. Adventures Away and Tracy Arm, I put my S95 on the Gorillapod so I could leave it to film whilst I took photos.

3. Definitely move around the ship on Tracy Arm day. From memory we started at the front of deck 10 to watch the approach before leaving when it got too crowded, moved to deck 4, then our verandah, then the aft of deck 7 and then deck 4 again

The Gorillapod is one of the greatest inventions of recent times - I do not know what I would do without it when travelling. I recently purchased the Gorillapod Hybrid which is slightly bigger and sturdier that the original Gorillapod which worked perfectly on the cruise - it fitted on every railing I wanted it to and didn't move until I moved it. Nearly all the videos I've uploaded so far were filmed using the Gorillapod - it even sat on the dashboard of the car when we drove to Emerald Lake from Skagway








During the cruise I had so many people come up to me and ask me about the Gorillapod and where I purchased it - they had never seen one before and thought that you could only buy them in the UK from hearing my accent. They seemed shocked when I said you could get them in the US.

Thanks so much for your replies - I appreciate it.

I see from your pictures that you had a navigator's verandah - we have 6642 booked for our cruise. I love the way it frames your picture!
