  1. Ovation of the Seas is supposed to be in Skagway today I believe. With the rock slide, can anyone confirm if they did make the port call? If so, did they tender or was their another dock available. We leave on her this coming friday, so just checking on the status. Thanks for any insight.
  2. Under 7 days to go!! Gathering the random items and essentials today to start packing. 6 days until cruise, 4 days until flights to Seattle. Starting to feel real! WooT!!
  3. Welcome to the forum. RCL is a great cruise line with great ships. Looks like you'll be boarding in less then 24 hrs. and I am sure you are excited! We board on July 1... so we'll probably be passing you at the pier! If you browse around enough on here, you will find some reviews for people that have come and gone from the pier in Seattle. Usually they are just a part of an overall review. I have been looking for the same information, and find tidbits here and there. Youtube also has some vids as well. This will be my first time out of Seattle... but have done about 6 cruises with RCL out of Florida, and can tell you they have it down to a science on the east coast. From what I have read... the Seattle terminal is not as fluid as other terminals... but also not the worst. So my expectations are tempered a little bit but I'll be interested in seeing how it compares myself. If you get a chance to let us know how you thought embarkation went tomorrow, with any tips/tricks... that would be awesome! Enjoy your cruise and have a great time!
  4. We are getting to the final countdown... 14 days to go!
  5. No idea how fully it is booked... but from the sound of things from reviews and forum posts, etc.... it sounds like its very full. Maybe not 100%, but probably close enough to feel 'full'. We did not book any specific excursions in Sitka, just planning on kind of a self walking tour of the town, and maybe some parks and trails. But nothing specific, as we kind of like to 'wing it' in some of our ports of call. Cheers
  6. I was about to say... if you are trashed... not a great idea and they might not let you. I'm sure also you cant walk up and say, 'Hold my beer'... and attempt said activities. But, also, they are not asking you to walk a line or anything before hand anyway. So, go have fun!!! Just not tooooo much fun.
  7. FYI.... Check in opened up as of late last night.
  8. Hope everyone has a great, safe, and wonderful trip... please report back how things went. Thanks
  9. Recently booked this cruise. Looking forward to getting back to Coco Cay!
  10. So I was looking into the iHealth testing and it shows the proctored service as 'sold out'.
  11. ATTENTION.... 1 month, 26 days, 5 hours until its cruise time. That is all. Carry on.
  12. I find that the lotion goes a lot further then the spray on. So, I bring one bottle of lotion sun screen (50 SPF and waterproof) and that will most likely cover 2 to 4 people for a week depending on other factors. But then we bring 1 bottle of spray on per person as our quick and easy re-application if needed. We dont like using the spray in our room or even on our balcony because it gets everywhere and causes a mess; and if you try to do it in the bath/shower, it can get really slippery. (ask me how I know) lol.
