    I just want to say that with the people on board, this is going to be an unbelievable cruise!:banana:

    It will be interesting to see who else joins on the 28th.

    [QUOTE="Got Disney";33688413]Has anyone here ever been to Alaska before or been to these ports????[/QUOTE]

    We went in 2007 on the RCCL Radiance. Excellent trip. Perfect weather (no rain). I am expecting this trip to have a lot of rain to balance things out. Same ports - Skagway (White Pass and Yukon Railroad), Juneau (Mendenhall Glacier and Whale Watching) and Ketchikan (Explorer by Land and Sea). We also stopped at Icy Strait Point and saw Hubbard Glacier. We did a pre-night at the Sheraton. No red-eye and no same day flights for us (to many horror stories).

    Lisa I re-read and it is FROM $99, I am guessing a room in July would be around $149, which isn't so bad from what I am seeing at other close by hotels.

    Lollipop mom, who is doing a Vancouver FAQ, said that many of the hotels come up on hotwire, but in the middle of summer, I don't know if I would chance it.

    We will probably stay at least one night prior to the cruise in Vancouver.

    I asked about pre-cruise hotels through DCL Here is what I was told for 3 people

    Fairmont Vancouver Airport - $249
    Fairmont Waterfront Vancouver - $274
    Fairmont Pacific Rim Vancouver - $294

    I check Fairmont's website and this is agood deal. Their cheapest rooms run around $320 - $370 per night for similar night in 2010.

    Although "Starting at $99" is more suited for my pocketbook

    Less on hotel more for DCL excursions.:)

    Hi everyone hope your all well. About 2 weeks ago I sent an e-mail to a friend that is in Iraq to see if she wanted to go on the Alaska cruise with us. She is a Colonel/major and her DH is up in the ranks also, so she has a better idea on where and when her times end and when they will have off or be.

    Anyway, she sent me back an e-mail saying YES they do want to join us. She gave me some dates but will e-mail me back Sunday Night to change those dates to one. However the dates she has picked are not the same as the one I already booked with all of you.

    She is trying to see if this date will work for her since I have this one already booked. But if not than I will have to change it. Bummer. Either way I will be up at 5am booking them a cabin. So I may be leaving all of you before we get to know each other.

    I will stop in to let you know Monday what has become of me......pirate:

    So, reading PJ and Lisa's posts, sounds like we may be able to cancel this and rebook on our TA cruise and get all that Platinum $$. :rolleyes1 Do you think? As long as the price has not gone up too much. Right? :confused:

    Angie, have PJ reshop it on her cruise in November to get the benefits for you. :) You will be able to keep your room & early dining too. The price may go up too much to make it worth your while to switch it if you wait until the TA and you definitely won't get early dining then.

    She sure can!!! I think that she will be doing this for Brack & Annette too. :) Carla will be on the Wonder that month too. I think the other room needs to be on the same cruise you are...but not sure...just that many have reported being able to do this.
