  1. We are going on the Ovation of the Seas in June to Alaska. We would like to try Skagway on our own and go hiking. Does anyone know how far it is from the cruise port to the Yakutania Point? I did google it but it didn't look that far. It says 1 hour roundtrip but I am not sure how long it takes to get there from the cruise port. Has anyone ever walked there? Thanks
  2. What is the best means of transportation for 5 from the cruise port in Seattle to the airport? The Seattle express which is $20 pp. Do you think an Uber would be cheaper? Thanks
  3. We will be on the Ovation in June and doing the Mendenhall Glacier trail hike. For anyone who has done the hike, what are the best shoes? I was looking at a pair of hiking sneakers but my husband thinks boots.
  4. Has anyone done this excursion? Does it take you on the railroad? On my cruise planner, it shows a picture of a railroad but in the description it states that "you board a comfortable vehicle". thanks
  5. thanks. Did you need hiking boots or are sneakers ok?
  6. Has anyone gone on this excursion? Did you like it? My husband and kids like to hike.
  7. We are taking an Alaskian Glacier cruise in June 2020. At this time, we have connecting balconies for us and our children on deck 8, 8524 & 8526. Our other family is staying the Owner's loft 8720 and interior cabin 8707. I booked 8524 & 8526 because they were the only connecting cabins open deck 8 but its a long walk to the other cabins. I was looking at other available cabins today and connecting cabins are open on deck 10, 10294 & 10296. My husband thinks deck 10 will be better because its higher and close to the aft of the ship. Does that matter? Are forward cabins more prone to sea sickness?
  8. We( myself, DH, DD20,DS19) are taking an Alaskian cruise in June 2020. Is the drinking age in Canada 19? Will they be able to drink or is Royal Caribbean's policy 21? My daughter actually turns 21 while we are on the cruise.

    We(family of 5) are doing an Alaskan cruise on the Ovation in June 2020. Has anyone done the Alaska's whales, glaciers and rainforest excursion? My husband and older DD want to walk/hike around the glacier and my youngest DD wants to whale watch. Do you see a lot of whales from the ship? When we cruised to the Bahamas, we saw a ton of dolphins swimming next to the ship. I was wondering if you see a lot of animals from the safari vessel during the excursion for the extra money? Is it better to just get transportation to the Mendenhall Glacier and walk/hike ourselves.
  10. I booked a 10 day cruise on the vision of the seas for March 19, 2021 to the southern Caribbean for our 25th anniversary in a great aft balcony. So excited. I am worried Weare going to have a lot of spring breakers. My husband doesn’t think so because it’s a 10 day cruise. Has anyone been on this cruise before at this time?
  11. Thanks everyone for your replies. I think we will keep 7652 and just keep monitoring the prices. Did you hear a lot of noise from the lounge?
  12. I am currently booked in an aft balcony 7652 on the vision of the seas to the Southern Caribbean. Very excited. DH was wondering if the Jr Suite 8088 would be better but its $1500 more. I realize there is more square footage and a bigger bathroom but there is only 2 of us and I don't mind. Not sure its worth the extra money.
