Thank you for answering my post it is nice to meet you. It should be a wonderful trip for you and your friends. Alaska is just fantastic. There is another active thread or discussion going on for this cruise at Cruisecritic.com. with a lot of members who are going on the trip. Also if you go to the Royal Caribbean site and click on Info & Extra’s (on the left-hand side) then notice on the page that opens on the right is a window, nine links down, is a link to Cruise Critic Parties, just click on that. It will take you to a place to register for a party. So far there are seventeen registered. We need to get to twenty-five before they will provide the party. Thought you might like to know. I look forward to meeting you and wish you a great cruise. If you get a chance check out the board, there are others from all over the country and a couple from Australia that are going.
Have a great cruise,
