This planning meeting is to get the final details and prices and hopefully for most of us pay our deposits. Bring your favorite appetizers and beverages of your choice to enjoy while discussing our 2014 cruise. More info to follow!

    Hope the meeting went well. Can you post or send me the specifics? I am also looking for someone to share a room with.

    June 26, 2013

    • Beth

      The specifics are up in the air right now. There was discussion about switching to a Caribbean cruise. Waiting on a decision from the Poobah.

    Informative - learned there are so many options now. Still interested in going to Alaska or the alternative - a Carribean cruise.

      I met people on my Alaskan cruise that have cruised all over the world, and now, just cruise Alaska once per year, they have done the Alaska cruise 17 times!

      Glad to hear it will not be Princess Sapphire, the balconies have no privacy at all since they are built in a staggered fashion going down the side of the ship, so you are looking directly down on the balcony below you.

  • sherice

    Is this still being planned for next June?

    June 24, 2013

    • Cindy

      yes

      June 24, 2013

    • sherice

      Thanks not able to attend out of town right now

      June 24, 2013

  • Al

    I will be coming from Seattle and will be late of course traffic may really make me late

    June 24, 2013

  • Mary

    Would you consider going in August? Better chance of good weather. Any prices yet for a single room by yourself with balcony? I would prefer a trip that includes the inside passage.

    I am working this week in Silverdale, delivering a workshop. Even though coming home every evening, have to get up at the crack of dawn and leave my place at 5:45 a.m. Have fun!!

  • Beth

    This is the perfect meetup to attend to get all your questions answered which may help you decide if you want to join us. You don't have to book at this meetup, this is informational. All of the prices for all of the cabin categories will be there. Of course, if you're ready to place your deposit, you will get the best cabin selection.

    If you have never cruised before and have questions, I can answer them. I will also bring some of my "new cruiser tip sheets" which answer most of those questions.

    As for those that are talking about other cruise lines, I think those of us who attended the first planning meetup have already made that decision. I have cabins blocked on Holland America's Ms. Westerdam sailing June 21 - 28, 2014. Hope to see a good turnout on Tuesday.

      Beth, I mentioned Norwegian, but was not promoting using it. My sister used them, because her relative already had a free ticket on that ship. She was not able to check out other cruises to Alaska. I'm sure using the Westerdam will be a great trip!

      June 20, 2013

    • Beth

      No problems, there have been some other comments about other cruise lines, so I was just clarifying. As far as I'm concerned - any cruise is a good cruise!

    My sister took the Norwegian Pearl and enjoyed it in Sept of last year, and it may have been the ship's last run for the season to Alaska, so she got on in Seattle and got off in Vancouver, B.C. and chose to drive back to Seatac to fly out of there w/her husband's relatives (married couple) she was traveling with. I'm not promoting Norwegian, my sister only took it because her relatives got a free trip on it from a casino. I think my sister booked it for herself thru Costco. I think they also stopped on Vancouver Island.

    June 20, 2013

    • Cindy

      Grace, are you coming with us?

      June 20, 2013

    • Grace

      I can't if I wanted to (parrot & dog), but I would otherwise be headed for warm waters. Cruising is not for me though. I'm a hands on plan it all out myself person, and don't mind the inconvience of it all. Cruises are great for getting on board, and not having to worry about anything. I turned down a free cruise to the Caribbean w/my ex-boyfriend due to not being able to take Capri. I can't board her, she'd freak out & go on a hunger strike!

    For those wanting more info, can w come to this without putting deposit down yet?

    June 20, 2013
