CLASS OF ’59 ALASKA CRUISE, SEPT. 7-14, 2024

 

The decision has been made.  We have secured booking on Holland America’s Eurodam cruise ship.  Departs from Pier 91 in Seattle at 3:00PM on Saturday, September 7, 2024.  It returns to Seattle on Saturday the 14th in the early morning hours. Scenic cruising at sea and other sites of Stephens Passage, Juneau, Glacier Bay, Sitka, Ketchikan, and Victoria BC.

The Eurodam will hold about 2100 passengers, considered a small size in the industry.  Several of you expressed a desire for this particular size.  It still has a full compliment of dinning, bars & lounges, even entertainment and onboard activities.  Yes, they have a casino, too.  Plus shopping to your heart’s content. Oh, for those interested there is a Fitness Center.

Our travel advisor is Flavius Garmacea (Gar-muh-shey).  He is with Expedia Cruises in Palm Desert, CA.  Phone number (760) 248-8920.  I have talked with him many times over the past two weeks and am confident you will have a good experience with him.  To get started with checking out the staterooms and costs, click on this link: 

https://bookus.cruisedesk.com/swift/cruise/package/1379929--7-day-alaska-explorer?siid=1024722&lang=1&slgenuid=1124079

If I may, let me walk you through a little of the process.  The opening page lists, in bold, the pricing for the 4 styles of staterooms.  INSIDE, is just what it means, NO windows.  These are on the centerline of the ship so there is usually very little sensation of roll.  Most of the cruise is on the Inside Passage so there is not much wave action anyway.  OUTSIDE, may have a window for some sun BUT, your view may be blocked by beams and/or lifeboats.  Read the descriptions carefully with the caveats. BALCONY have a door to an outside veranda with two chairs and a table (usually).  This is for fresh air and a personal space.  Remember your view will be different when going up or coming back down.  SUITES are the luxury rooms and cost almost 3 times the inside rooms.  But if that’s your gig, tell me your room number so I can visit you.  Just kidding.

On this opening page, scroll down and fill in the blanks.  If you are military you will need to send in a copy of your DD-214 to receive the perks from Holland America.  Click on your state of residence, then click CONTINUE.

Next page is the Category of rooms.  For starters the default is INSIDE. Scroll down and the first thing to notice is the Identifier “MM” .  The deck is Navigation.  If you scroll more you’ll see other Identifiers, e.g. “M, N, L, K, etc.” Each of these is for a different deck or location on the ship and thus the changes in prices.  You can click on the Book Now button and you will see a Deck Plan and some flashing red lights that show which staterooms are available.  This is where you can request a specific cabin.  Which is what I did. You will notice that the least expensive rooms will usually be in the aft section of the ship.  This is because of more noise of the engines and the prop wash generates some noise.  But we’ll be topside anyway reacquainting with one another over a cup of coffee or another adult beverage.

If you have gotten this far and still unable to finalize your choice, please call Flavius and he will walk you through the site and help you get the room you want for the price you want.

Finally, there is an additional item that I chose, and Flavius simply calls it the “Package”.  This is a certain price for extras such as more choice of drinks,  $100 credit for shore excursions, gratuities, one night of fine dining, and Wi-fi. They issue a special color of wrist band to wear to designate your acceptance of this option. 

I hope this gives you enough information to make some decisions.  I am looking forward to seeing some classmates because it has been too long since we were at Nardone’s.    

LET’S CELEBRATE OUR 65TH GRADUATION ANNIVERSARY TOGETHER !!
