My Mother and I are going to Alaska on the Diamond Princess on June 5th. Are you going on the same ship? It is sailing out of Seattle.

We're going on the Island Princess on June 5th also. We're doing a Wilderness/Kenai cruisetour so we'll do the land portion first, then the cruise.

Can't wait!!

Hi Stewy and OneHappyLady!! We'll be on the Radiance on June 5 as well and are getting very excited!

Just starting to lay out things to pack and make sure everyone has enough clothes for dinner. Taking my 15-year-old daughter shopping tomorrow - wish me luck!!!

Hey NB cruiser and 1 happy lady!!
By the posts on this board its hard to know what to bring? I was watching the weather on the weather network .com . I think rain is the weather of choice in Alaska! Good luck with the shopping, hope she goes easy on you!. I'm just glad we're from Ontario and seem to have clothes for all types of weather. Hope to meet you all on board!
Stewy.

We are thinking jeans and layers on top (t-shirts, long-sleeved shirts, fleeces, windbreakers). Taking ponchos in case of rain. I hope we don't need hats or gloves, but I might pack some lightweight ones just in case. There of 5 of us, so trying not to overpack!
I am still recuperating from foot surgery done 8 weeks ago, so if you see a tall middle-aged lady with short blond hair limping around the ship, that will be me. . . .
What shore activities are you planning? We are going whale watching with Captain Larry and then on to Mendenhall Glacier in Juneau. Renting a van in Skagway to drive to the Yukon and back. Nothing planned yet for Ketchikan, tho I might like to take a guided tour of Saxman Village.

You DO need a knit hat and gloves. Without them- you will be running back inside during prime glacier viewing. They take up little room and I ALWAYS use them- every trip.

So excited, can't wait.

I can sympathize with you, Hope the foot isn't too painful .This cruise should have been last year as our honeymoon but 3 weeks before the wedding I broke my leg :>( . so we had to cancel . So I'll be the 34 year old limping over to say Hi! My wife is wondering what people wair on the boat, when just relaxing on deck or in the casino/bar exc.? as for activities, we are going to book them in port. Have read alot of good things about Captin Larry, sounds like you'll have a great time. A must for us is the helli run to a glacier, and the train ride. We start our trip in Edmonton on Wednesday as we're taking the train through the Rockies to Vancouver. Buy the sounds of the last post I think we should pack our hats and gloves as well!

If these are must do's, then book ahead. You are making a big mistake waiting until you are at the dock. Not only is it a waste of prime port time. There will not be any flights available and possible no whale watching space or times not as convienent. The train usually has space. Look at www.coastalhelicopters.com for direct booking

Stewy -
Tell your wife that when I was on a Canival cruise with my sister in January (back when I WAS a newbiecruiser!) We wore nice shorts and jeans in the daytime and never felt underdressed. Everything was very casual. Only dressed up for dinner. I'm planning to do the same for this cruise.
Foot doesn't hurt that much, just feels heavy and a little sore after being on it for a few hours - then I have to force myself to sit down and elevate it. Glad we don't have any really physical (i.e. hiking) excursions planned for this trip. Thought I'd be a lot more active by now!!

Also, Hi Pat from Ottawa! Welcome to our little group of June 5 ROS cruisers!

I signed up for a meet & mingle on the Royal Caribbean board on cruisecritic.com - but I don't know if anyone else has, or if it's too late to sign up.
