  1. We did the Northbound on the Radiance the 3rd week of July 2018 and it was wonderful. Not too hot or too cold and saw lots of whales on our excusion.
  2. Good to know! That is the airport I booked our Delta flights for. We don't cruise until October 8, 2020 though. Now I need hotel suggestions as we are arriving a day early.
  3. I tried the Painkiller (drink of the day) on our cruise last month! I ended up ordering it a few more times.
  4. For those who have done this one - We are in port 6 days out 9 so I am pondering on getting the WiFi or not. Did you have signal on the sea days? We did when we did our Northbound Alaskan Cruise. We are business owners and will need access; however, if we even get some limited access on the sea days I may not get the internet package. I guess I need to know if we see land most of the way up the New England coastline.
  5. I just looked at our Adventure OTS (October 8th) and the drink package is down from $55 to $51. I'm going to recheck it over the next couple of days to see if it goes lower.
  6. My VPN for AT&T works fine also.
  7. I've only used the Mobile Passport once (Atlanta) when we returned from Punta Cana. It worked and we bypassed a very long line.
  8. I hoping for discounts on the drink/zoom package for our 9 night October 2020 cruise. At the pricing now we will save almost $80 doing the drink/zoom package than getting them separately. It's on sale now for $65/night for combo. It will be my luck that they raise the price instead of lowering it!
  9. Super Shuttle or Go Shuttle are both good.
  10. I leave (fly) 11/16/19 for our cruise on 11/17/19 out of New Orleans. I have a list started and will start putting stuff on the bed in our guest room about 2 weeks out. Some things I will have to get washed and ready the week of. One good thing is that it is starting to get cool here and my summer stuff can be laid out anytime. We keep extra phone/iPad/watch chargers for travel that way we don't have to worry about forgetting one. I have a tote in the guest room closet that has some stuff that I want to take already started.
  11. I ALWAYS check the beds first (hotel or cruise) before anything is taken out of my suitcase. I have never had any issues on a cruise; however, I did at one name brand hotel a few years ago.
  12. Where she is standing there is a ledge and there is none above her or below her. That is a doctored picture!
  13. When is the group cruise for October 2020? We are going with several friends on the Adventure October 8 2020 for 9 days.
  14. We had no issues and it didn't take long at all. We did fly in a day early so that may have helped.
  15. We flew Delta and used points for most of our flights. We flew into Vancouver and flew out of Anchorage.
  16. It was thru RCI. There are several to pick from on how many days/nights that you want. We picked the 3 due to having to return to work. It included transportation and lodging but not any food. It was an awesome experience and we want to go back and stay longer.
  17. We sailed out of Vancouver and loved it. Sailing up the inside passage, we had AT&T cell service the entire time with the exception of and hour or two at the most. We also did a 3-day inland tour with RCI at the end of our cruise. It was the perfect ending to a perfect cruise.
  18. That sounds like a good idea. We are thinking about staying two more nights and going the NYC so the PATH will come in handy too.
  19. We will have at least 16 people in our group; however, I am not if everyone is coming in the day before or not as we are all from different states and etc. I guess we will need to do a lot of research. I am not a "fly-by-the-seat-of-my-pants" person so on to the research I go
  20. We will be arriving the day before so where do you stay that is close to port and do any of the hotels have a shuttle to the port? It looks like we will fly into EWR.
  21. Well there are 6 balconies in a row so that stinks that we can't open them up. Oh well - I don't think that will slow us down any ....
  22. We booked our Fall New England-Canada cruise on the Adventure yesterday for October 2020. This will be our first out of Port Liberty NJ and on the Adventure. We are going with 7 to 8 more couples. Got the last day of the WOW sail too! Now let the planning begin!
  23. We did the Northbound and did Royals 3-day inland tour then flew home from Anchorage. We would totally do it again as there is just so much more to see and do. Also, we have AT&T and had actual AT&T cell service the entire time. We were shocked about that. As a matter of fact, we had better reception there than at our own house!
  24. I got this package on our 7-day cruise and it was great. At least one person from your cabin has to be in the pictures. You can get your pictures taken any time they have a photographer around. We got 135 pictures taken. We got them on a CD with the release to print them ourselves. We wanted new family pictures so it was well worth the price and quality.
