Kuki's poll produced quite a few more responses indicating a preference for 'Anytime Dining" than I expected. Now, I'm curious as to whether this correlates with other preferences. To get a sense, please answer the following questionss.
>> 1. How many cruises have you taken?
>> 2. How many of those cruisea are with Princess?
>> 3. Which class of Princess ship is your favorite?
>> 4. Which seating at dinner do you prefer?
>> 5. What is your age group (under 20, 20's, 30's, 40's, 50's, 60's, 70's, 80's, 90 & over)?
1. This will by my first cruise, my husband's second (first one was high school grad cruise loooooong ago)
2. Again, since this is my first - they have all been with Princess
4. I think we are going to enjoy the Personal Choice the best simply because we don't necessarily like to eat at the same time everynight - depends on what we are doing at that moment. If we are having fun doing something, we might not eat until 10:00 at night.
5. I am in my LATE 20's and my husband is in his mid thirties.
No sign of tickets yet but I'm ready. I figure it will take half an hour max to get packed unless I have to go buy bigger luggage. I have never taken a vacation where I needed to take warm clothes in addition to clothing in case it's warm!
Have you decided what tours your taking? The only one we have decided so far is the rafting at Eagle Pass. I guess we will have to wave as we pass since we aren't scheduled to be in any ports at the same time. We are in 4 ports with the Norwegian Wind, 2 ports with the Volendam and 2 ports with the Regal.
We have 28 days 21 hours and 52 minutes until we board the plane and with an expected heat indice of 110 today, I am more than ready for Alaskan weather.

Where are you that's so hot?
"Have you decided what tours your taking?"
Here are the tours that I have reserved.
>> Ketchikan: Saxman Native Village & City Tour (KTN-B)
>> Juneau: Gold Panning & History Tour (JNU-C)
>> Skagway: Historical Skagway & Days of '98 (SGY-A), White Pass & Yukon Route (SKG-G)
>> Seward to Anchorage: Grandview Rail Transfer
I understand that the White Pass & Yukon Route traverses some of the most rugged and scenic miles of railroad anywhere in the world, and that the views from the train are quite spectacular. The Grandview Rail Transfer should be a lot more comfortable than the "motorcoach" transfer from Seward to Anchorage.
I chose the other tours either because they visit unique attractions and they have significant historical content. I also plan to do some independent exploring in Juneau, where my parents say that a visit to the state capital is a "must."
