Last year, the first two weeks of Aug we had 70s, and I wore shorts. The only day I wore a jacket was the day in Glacier Bay when we were just yards away from the glacier.

AWESOME!

I read all thru these postings and just wanted to add my two cents. Glen and I first went to Alaska in '98. We were scheduled to go the first week in June but the ship was overbooked so we went the third week. The weather was really gorgeous. Scuttlebut had it that it rains three days out of seven but that week it rained for about 20 minutes when we were in Ketchikan.

We went back in August of '08 and took a different tour because I wanted to see Sitka, which is not quite as Russian as I expected. Would love to see Dutch Harbor sometime. The nicest light we saw on that trip was Rockwell light. Those of you who regularly do the postcard exchange, I sent an Alaska card which had Rockwell Lighthouse pictured. The first cruise we had a cabin with a picture window and the second we had a balcony. On the first we were up on the top deck when we went to the glaciers.

If you never cruised and think you might be subject to seasickness, get a pair of the bracelets. They really work.

Rod,

I have a question. In your email, you said that "you needed 'first and last names' as they appear on our passports". Does this mean the we must bring our passports?

Thank You.

Bob

Good Question Bob, Thank You!

YES, passports are required for this cruise as we will be in & out of Canada and therefore we do have to clear US Customs. This is not a time consuming issue as it is done onboard the ship, but it is a requirement. Passports are always good to have with you no matter where we go these days. If anyone is considering an alternative excursion in Skagway beware you made need them to enter back into the US if you are on a bus tour, but for our train guests they WILL NOT need to have them for our excursion.

When I enter names for a booking with Celebrity Cruises I can only enter the first & last names and they do need to be as they are on your passport, your ”legal name”. When you get to do your online check in April-June of next year you can then add your middle names to match up with your passport, but NOT until then.

Cheers!

Rod,

I have been looking forward to the Northern Lights. From what I have read the chances of seeing them are slim to none this time of year. Have you seen them on other trips?

well,
me and she wanted to go, and were on the original list. And were told we would receive an email, with all plans dates and all info, once solidified! Never heard back! Did any ever make those emails?
Any chance we could still come along?

I have been to Alaska many times and unfortunately I have yet to experience the Northern Lights. They are more common later in the year and further north then when and where we'll be going so I do not think we'll be treated with a show, but you never know, if the conditions are right we may be in luck!!

Hello, Rod here from Paradise-Bound.net, booking agent for the Harbour Lights 20th Anniversary Reunion Cruise. Unfortunately I was not involved with the original "email trail" prior to my booking & registration function to answer your email questions, but I am happy to advise everyone that there is space available to "get onboard"!

I will say that the response has been very good and we are getting close to our original limit so the sooner the better for anyone looking to join us. I am currently wrapping up another group outing in Boston and will be back in my storefront this weekend. If you have not visited the website for this opportunity please take a look at what I have posted and give me a call or email if you have any questions.

If anyone would like a link to the Harbour Lights 20th Anniversary Reunion Cruise website, my phone numbers, questions or my help in any way please do not hesitate to email me through this post.

Cheers!

Sue and I are doing the Grand Tour (we love being retired) going to and coming from the Cruise. We are going to hit as many National Parks and other sites of interest, plus a few lighthouses. Since this will be taking about 5 or 6 weeks to complete the Grand Tour and we have three Siamese cats; we had a small problem of both taking care of the cats and security of our home while we are gone.

Problem solved!! My cousin who is retired and living in Florida is, with her hubby, going to house/cat sit for us while we are gone. They both lived and worked in Indy before they retired. they have a daughter and grand-daughter still living here in Indy. Talk about a win, win all around.

Hi Paul,

How are you? We met you and your lovely wife Sue at the Rhode Island Reunion.

My husband and I are very interested in going on the Alaska cruise. Do you know how many balconies they still have left or if the cruise is sold out yet?

Please let us know.

Thank you,
Carol

Rod,

Can we get an up-to-date list on who all is going? And maybe thier stateroom numbers. It would be nice to know which of our Lighthouse Family members will be accompanying us and who will be close-by in proxsimany to our own staterooms.

Oh, and how many total Lighthousers do you have going as of now?

Stephanie, I got an answer from Tony to your questions..
Quote:

Harbour Lights will publish a directory of those attending: Name, Address, Phone and eMail, as in the past Reuions. The Directory will be in the Goodie Bag given to guests on-board the ship.

There will be no Stateroom numbers given out as people deserve their privacy!

Somewhere within this thread I think we had begun to share room numbers. But perhaps we could start a separate new thread for publishing room numbers, and that way people can share if they wish. Of course, we would be missing non-forums members.

The last number I saw published for attending was 200+ and that was back in August.

I believe the total attending in the HL group is now 300+ and all rooms originally blocked off for HL attendees have now been all filled.

Joe and I leave home next weekend to start our track towards Seattle. I know your saying “Why so early?”!!! Well we first head for Arizona where Joe is going to do a 3 week Shutdown at a Paper Mill in Snowflake. After the Shutdown we will head on over to the coast of California and visit every Lighthouse and National Park that we can possible get to all the way up the Western Coast. We are figuring 4 weeks on the road after we leave AZ.

Our bags are packed and the truck is loaded. We'ed leave today... but I have a Red Hat Event to attend next Sat., so we are leaving right after the event.

See you all there!!!

Hope you have the time of your lives, and see many lights. Don't forget the light on top of Fort Point, under the Golden Gate Bridge. A Harbor Tour takes you out under the bridge, and very close to the light, and then past Alcatraz Island. You can get great pictures of the Alcatraz Lighthouse.

Will miss not seeing all of you. Lots of stuff happening with my family. Kristin's first baby coming next week, and Kerri's getting married July 2, so we're pretty busy.
Alaska was a tremendous trip. We're still talking about it every week. Add the HL group, and you have the formula for something special. Hopefully we'll see most of you at a future event???????????

Well, at least we know the ship didn't sink and the Coast Guard wasn't called in so that's a good sign. Everyone have a safe trip home and we'll be waiting for the "Sea Stories" to surface.
