You've picked a beautiful ship for your first cruise. Congratulations!

Not meaning to argue with Nita, but there aren't many balcony cabins on deck 8 -- and none that I'd consider "mid-ship". ...

Re: Never cruised before..considering NCL next year...lots o

We just returned from our 6th cruise -- all on NCL.

Here's my opinion on a couple of your questions.

We've normally taken taxis from the airport to the pier, but you can also arrange for...

Getting to sail the inside passage unexpectedly would be a wonderful surprise! I still can't decide which of the NCL itineraries I like more -- the Pearl and Glacier Bay, or the Sun and the inside...

Sail the Dawn on 9/21 and keep me company! Our roll-call on one of the other message boards could use some more people.

For us, it's a matter of wanting the longer itinerary, since we're flying...

Shoreguy -- question for you. If I've seen this answered, I don't remember. Our first account is in my DH's name, but I'm an authorized signer. If I ever ended up sailing without him (over his...

I've never tried -- but that's a great question. What we ended up doing was booking a more expensive cabin to make sure that we ended up using the entire amount of our certificate. Instead of...

We sailed on the Pearl last year (in May) and absolutely loved our cruise. I found that we participated in fewer activities than we do on a Caribbean cruise, as our favorite activity was sitting...

When we sailed on the Sun, we flew into Seattle, rented a car, and drove to Bellingham where we spent the night. The next morning it was a short, beautiful drive to Vancouver. Depending on how many...

From my limited reading on the subject, you're probably too late for dog sledding on the glaciers anyway. They normally stop in the middle of August, as the snow is gone off the glaciers by then. I...

I'm interested to hear that they have scheduled Endicott Arm instead of Tracy Arm. It makes sense, as the success rate late in the season is practically nil, and there have been frustrated cruises...

We did an Alaskan cruise on the Sun in 2004 and had a great time. It was our 2nd cruise, and the first cruise for our two kids (ages 18 & 20). My food suggestions would be meaningless, as the menu...

I like the idea of separating the commode and the shower. It seems like one or the other of us is in the shower when the other needs to use the commode, which isn't always a pleasant situation ...

Re: Sun Alaska July 08

Depending on what excursions you're interested in doing, you might want to book them in advance. In Alaska, particularly, a lot of the more popular ones (flights for glaciers landings, dog sleds,...

I think a lot of it has to do with the lifestyle required if you work on a cruise ship. Most of the crew (room stewards, waitstaff, etc.) work 10 month contracts -- which means they are away from...

Nice pictures! I'm quite surprised at how similar everything still looks. A lot of the furnishings from the public areas still looks about the same as I remember.

We've been on the Sun and weren't impressed at all with the hair ryers. On the Pearl and the Jewel they were fine and I didn't need my own, but the one on the Sun wasn't very good.

At the end of April, I'd recommend hats & gloves too! Last year Mendenhall Glacier was iced over and snow covered until almost mid-May. I was watching to see if it would thaw before we sailed on...
