  1. Owwww, that's a lovely thought. I'll find out if they'll deliver that early. Much better than something I saved the night before in a ziplock!
  2. I agree - most things can be worn twice, but be careful about packing only one bag. if it gets lost (airline) and you don't get it back before ship leaves, you're up the creek. Take two and pack some things for each of you in each bag. If one gets lost, you both still have something to wear:) And, it will leave more room for souvenirs:). Also, I start putting stuff in a "cruise" pile in a separate room as soon as I have picked shore excursions (they may require unusual attire, e.g., hiking boots). That way I can see if I need to order anything special to take (i.e. water resistant pants for our Alaska outings!) and have them in plenty of time instead of discovering the week before that I'm missing something. I start packing the suitcases the week before, leaving. Laying stuff out to see what can be mixed/matched helps pack less too:)

  4. I can't speak to a lot of the post but I can say that a segway in old St. Juan might not be a good idea. If you can't ride on the sidewalk, much of the roadway is brick or cobblestone and that could be very dangerous on segway. We were there several years ago on a motorcycle cruise. It had rained on/off that day and motorcycles on those narrow, wet brick/cobblestone roads was nerve wracking to say the least. I too have foot/ankle issues and use an ankle brace (mueller). Seems to help a great deal.
  5. Thanks, I was thinking steamer. Flat iron idea is interesting but I too don't have any experience with them and I'm afraid I'd scorch something and be out of luck:) Thanks again.
  6. Thanks so much. I seemed to remember no iron last time we cruised but went completely braindead when packing this time. Great idea on the downy wrinkle releaser. Only packing a few things that might need touching up:)
  7. Dumb question, but are irons supplied in the staterooms? Might need to touch up something for formal night😉
  8. Great photo! Thanks for the tip on the waterproof. We were going for the boots and hubby has water resistant pants - might need to look into those for me too!
  9. Thanks so much. We're taking helicopter over to Mendenhal and then sledding on the glacier. Glad to hear the weather's not going to be frigid!
  10. Perfect - I was actually looking at some of the convertible pants! Thanks!
  11. My husband will be SO glad to hear that - he's balking at bringing too many long pants. I'm thinking something nice for MDR and long pants for dog sledding on the glacier, probably for salmon fishing too!
  12. Thanks so much. I hadn't thought about checking the port arrival time, still fairly new to cruising and it never really mattered before because I don't usually book anything before 9:) I'm taking along a few ziplocks just in case I get an urge for a late night cookie or snack so I'll be sure to have one available in case i need it for some morning goodies!
  13. My hubby and I are sailing on Radiance next week and have booked the Dog Sledding excursion out of Juneau. Has anyone taken this excursions? Recommended clothing? i'm thinking warm jacket, gloves, hat and scarf. Also hiking boots. Is all that necessary or am I just being a sissy:)
  14. RC just changed our excursion time to a 6:30 a.m. excursion from something more reasonable. This is for a Salmon Fishing excursion from Radiance of the Sea next week. Checked with RC about this and they indicated provider has eliminated the later excursions - my guess not enough interest. This is the only time available. Has anyone taken this O'dark Thirty excursion? Question: What time would we end up leaving the ship to get there that early or does the excursion "start" time mean the time we gather to go to the excursion site? When the heck would we eat breakfast? Bring something back from dinner to eat in the a.m.?
  15. Fares are disgusting. Alaskan cruise has been on my bucket list for years. Flights to Vancouver were actually half of what it was to come home from Anchorage! Fortunately, I had about 100K frequent flyer miles and that paid for most of the airfare. Investigating other options for traveler cards - mine was American Airlines and their flights are not really comfortable and couldn't use Alaskan (partner with AA) because flight times were horrible.
