I booked this trip over a year ago....at that time....Princess was not going to Glacier Bay.

It changes ....I don't know how often..I don't know how they decide.....but I booked NLC because Disney and Princess did not go to glacier Bay. I used Bonnie Buchanan who is a sponsor here at TTOL.

This is our first time to use NLC...I hope I am not disappointed.

Princess is definitely your best choice. When we go on that cruise, we will choose Princess as well. We usually pick the excursions from Princess, they may be a bit more expensive, but always worth it!

We are booked on the Coral Princess for July/August and we have 2 days by the Glaciers Hubbard and Glacier Bay so I guess I am confused when you said Princess didn't have the license to go through Glacier Bay. Our itinerary has Aug 1 as our GB day. I know we stay on the ship both these days but they do scenic cruising. Do you think I should be concerned or are you referring to something else. We booked this in November so maybe it was available then?

If your itinerary says you are going to glacier bay...then i would guess you are.Contact your agent to make sure...but I am sure it is ok.

I think all of the ships just go into Glacier bay then turn around and come back out. None of them allow you to get off the ship in Glacier Bay.

Got the binoculars, extra data card for your camera? If taking a laptop do you have the ability to download your photos to the computer also. If not a simple usb card reader will do the trick.

I'm sure you already know to pack clothes you can layer, so you can take off and put on, as the weather changes. And make sure you have a coat with a hood, for when it rains, so you don't have to hold an umbrella, instead of the camera or the binocs! We went to Alaska a LONG time ago, back when you could smuggle liquor onboard without any problem. We would order room service coffee and then go refill the coffee carafe and had irish coffee on our balcony!! I have to assume you have a balcony?? I hope so! If I were doing it again, I would pack a small light blanket for balcony sitting also! I can't remember where it was now, but we went in one of the ports and bought a piece of flannel fabric that we used on the balcony to wrap ourselves in. Worked out great! (...and we still have it today.. )

I have packed jeans and sweaters for steve and leggings and sweaters and boots for me.

We do have a balcony.

I have also packed an umbrella and jackets.

This cruise does not include formal nights..and everything is casual...though i did pack one nice dinner outfit for us.

We have the unlimited internet package....the unlimited liquor package....the largest photo package..the whale watching for Juneau...the railroad for Skagsway....the lumberjack show and salmon bake for Ketchikan...and the gardens for British Victoria. I booked three specialty dinners.

I will pack a light blanket...that's a great idea.

We fly to Seattle Saturday and will stay at the Marriott on the port so all we have to do is walk across the street to the ship.

As I said, we really used our jackets with hoods, so we didn't have to hang on to the umbrella.

Have a GREAT time! I am looking forward to hearing all about your trip and seeing those beautiful pictures!
