Congratulations on your 25th anniversary, and your first cruise. As far as tips we can give you, all I can say is, "don't worry." Most of your fellow passengers are first-time cruisers and there's nothing to it. Go with the flow.

Browse the questions, on this board, and if you see one that puzzles you, open the thread and read the replies. This board is chock full of good advise.

Welcome Julie & Randall - Congratulations on both your 25th Anniversary and your very first cruise.

You will find us a happy friendly group who between us can probably answer just about any question you might have about cruising.

I enjoy the planning almost as much as the actual cruise. We will be leaving 2 days after you on the Explorer so I know what the wait it like. However by visiting here and joining in hopefully the time will fly by.

Welcome to the boards!!! I have never cruised to Alaska, but my sister and her family took this same exact cruise you are taking aboard the Carnival Spirit. They absolutely loved it and saw some breathtaking sights!! They didn't have a balcony, so with you having a balcony, I can only imagine the beautiful sights you will see. Make sure you take plenty of film!! The one thing I can think of to pass onto you is that they cruised in June and it was pretty chilly; so be sure and check out the weather so you pack the right kind of clothing!

Congrats on the cruise, and welcome to the boards!

Dawn

Hi Julie,

Welcome to CruiseCrazies. This a great place to come if your looking for cruise info. There's lots of experienced cruisers on the board, and it's probably the nicest cruise board on the 'net.

My wife and I cruised to Alaska last year for our 25th Anniversary and we loved every bit of the cruise. This wasn't our 1st, but it certainly was our best yet. Having a balcony cabin on an Alaskan cruise is really a great advantage. It does get quite chilly when you are around the glaciers, and with a balcony, you can go inside to warm up at your pleasure.

Dress with layers while you're there so if it gets warm, you can just peel of a layer. Like I said, it does get chilly, but it can also be pretty warm at times.

I'm sure that you will have quite a few questions before you go, so please feel free to ask. We're all here to answer questions (and play games, and welcome people, etc.), so ask away. :grin:

Howard
