  1. What’s in a lava flow? I’ve just had a kraken colada which was really good!!
  2. Hi All! I’m currently on Ovation completing our Alaska sailing, which has been great! We now have 2 sea days before we head back to Seattle. I need some inspiration for some fruity/sweet cocktails. Please throw any recommendations you have my way! Extra points for off-menu drinks!
  3. I have googled them. They only service Ontario. Looks like BC have stricter rules than the US, not pharmacy’s etc. If you hear any other suppliers though, please do let me know! Enjoy your cruise
  4. We’re coming from the UK, the RCI ones don’t service the UK market. I thought about doing that with a UK provider but would hate for them not to accept it.
  5. Hi All! My partner and I will be on this cruise too! I’ve just asked a question on testing in Vancouver on the main board. Could be of interest to fellow passengers on this thread.
  6. Hi All, We cruise out of Vancouver on 5th May on our first Alaska cruise and we’re arriving a few days early to explore and so need to find a reliable Covid testing facility locally. I’ve found two so far: 1. Fairmont Hotel - fast-test is the provider. They say results of an antigen are received in 15 minutes or less. They’re 131.25CAD each (there are 2 of us). You can book an appointment online. 2. Go Rapid Test - They say results of an antigen are received in 2hours or less. They’re 103.25CAD each or 109.20CAD each with a QR code. This is technically drive through but apparently you can walk through too. You can’t book an appointment time as it’s drive-through. My questions are, has anyone had experience with either of these providers previously? Any other recommendations? Does anyone know if the QR code is a requirement? I haven’t seen this separate before. Thanks in advance!
  7. Hi All, I’ve seen the recent release on testing and I cruise on the 5th May on Ovation. What isn’t completely clear is if the antigen test has to be supervised or not. Does anyone know? Separately, I accidentally miscalculated our cruise length and turns out I booked our return flight 2 days late oh well, 2days extra in Seattle! We’re already going early and flying to Seattle first to explore it, then a few days in Vancouver before embarking on our cruise but looks like we’ll be back to explore further. Any recommendations on what to do in Seattle since we now have so long there after our cruise?
  8. May I ask what won you the bid? I’ve received our RoyalUp offer today and we’re in a balcony and I’m looking to bid of a Grande suite 1BR AND 2BR.
  9. Hi, you technically don’t need to as all you need to re-board the ship will be your sea pass, but it’s advisable. If something happened that would cause you to miss the ship, you would need your passport to at least get you to the next port to catch the ship back up.
  10. Thank you. That’s helpful! The UK prices of Pan Pacific are expensive but about $260 USD cheaper than going direct so I booked it. The only difference being is the bag transfer isn’t included but to be honest we’ll be dragging the bags all over Seattle to Vancouver anyway, I’m sure we’ll manage down a lift to the ship.
  11. That’s helpful to know. We are just two average height people I’ve booked it to give it a go but as fully refundable just in case!!
  12. I ended up booking this place as it came highly recommended on our Facebook cruise group too. Someone also mentioned they also do cruise deals, they have a lift that goes straight into the cruise terminal and also offer to take care of your luggage so you can go straight from your hotel to the ship luggage-free.
  13. Hi All, My partner and I are on the Alaska cruise departing May 5th from Vancouver. We plan to fly to Seattle from the UK on 30th April, have a few days there and then either drive or the train to Vancouver on Tuesday 2nd to have a few days there before we board. Does anyone have any recommendations on nice, well located hotels in Seattle and/or Vancouver?
  14. Thanks for your input, @12thmanand @Pooch. I think I might hold off and cross fingers for Royal Up!
