Hope this helps...
1. Not Clear on Formal evenings. Can I wear Dockers and Polo shirt in the PC
dining rooms on those evening?
No, just because you chose PC for dining (my favorite I might add), you still are expected to dress in formal attire. Basically, it just means that you do not have an assigned time to eat.
2. I have a guaranteed AE Mini-Suite. Any one with experience with that?
Pros/Cons? Our TA said it was a good deal but why?
Great deal, it means that you are guaranteed to get at least an AE mini-suite, but there is always a chance of an upgrade. The Mini suite is nice because you have a little (and I mean little) sitting area, as well as a balcony. For Alaska, you will want this because you will be cruising through places, and will want to sit outside and watch. This means you can sit outside in your robe and enjoy breakfast while cruising.
3. I've read many versions and angles on bring alcohol aboard. Seems like the
Consensus is that Wine and Water are Ok, Beer and liquor aren't but try anyway
by putting it in checked baggage. Any opinions on that?
We always bring beer, soda and wine in our checked luggage, and have never had a problem (I would suggest making sure it is in something that won't get it on your clothes if it leaks). Go for it!
4. My wife loves glaciers. Anyone with experiences in Fly in Glacier tours
in Juneau, Skagway or Ketchikan? Would love to hear about it.
Sorry, too scared to do this, maybe someone else will post.
