  1. In case any of you were planning on the White Pass railroad in Skagway on excursions that crossed the border into Canada, this was posted today at https://wpyr.com/updates/

    Cross Border Tours – Service Suspended for 2022 Operating Season

    After months of working towards restoring the Carcross and Fraser Train Service Combination, we unfortunately must announce that we are unable to provide these offerings for the 2022 Season.  We have delayed this difficult decision for several months in the hopes that we could find a workable solution for all involved and provide passenger service on these international routes.  The challenges of logistics, restrictions, and uncertainty around wait times would have made it impossible for us to provide a consistent high quality service without delays and would create significant disruption to the passenger experience.

    We respect and appreciate the time and efforts of our communities, staff, partners, customers, and governmental agencies at all levels in both Canada and the United States over the last year to try to bring this to fruition.  Though we could not complete the task in time for this season, we will continue to work together towards restoring this service for 2023.

    For those booked on Fraser and Carcross train service this summer, our reservation staff will be reaching out to discuss your travel options and provide an alternative service on our White Pass Summit Excursion offering.

    As stated by some, it will be the time of the port the ship is scheduled to leave from. Since a lot of sailings occur out of Florida people assume EST but it is not always the case. 

    I suggest looking up the time zone of your departure and converting it to your time zone, instead of just basing it on EST.

    Thanks! Departure port is Seattle, and I live in Florida, so I guess it will be 3am for me.

  3. I've read here on the boards that the ship does a 180 degree turn, but is that just the ship turning around to leave? Or does it turn 90 degrees in both directions so both port and starboard sides have a viewing opportunity? My elderly parents will most like stay on their balcony which is why I'm asking. If only one side has a viewing, I will make sure to take the time to ensure they get on an upper deck for viewing.

    I will find out Monday night. I'll be watching the NCAA men's basketball final that night and Tuesday is check in day for the Ovation May 20 sailing. Won't have to wait too long after the game to get past midnight Eastern and try to check in. If it's ship time, I'll probably wait until 3 hours past the start of check in since I'll be getting up for work at 6:00 EDT.

    That's my sailing too... I'm hoping it's midnight eastern time, I don't feel like setting the alarm for 3am 😴

  5. Every time I either call in for a price adjustment, or my air2sea reservation changes (basically anytime my reservation is touched in any way), the taxes/fees/port expenses doubles. RCCL support says it's because it was a lift & shift reservation. Each time I have to call and wait about an hour on hold for the Resolution team to adjust it back to what it should be. I'm wondering if this is happening to anyone else?

    Has anyone had to help another person (ie, a vaccinated child or teen) with their test?  DD is 31, but disabled, so likely DH will  have to assist her since she cannot do it herself, or even answer for herself (she can speak, but really won't even understand it, so we'll just explain it to her very generally).  Is it difficult to do?  Should I try calling ahead of time? We will be taking the tests in 2 weeks, and ordered them from Optum.

    I had to assist someone with their test. It wasn't an issue, I repeated and explained what the proctor was saying and letting the person know how to answer. I even helped with opening the package too.
