we are off to Alaska on Infinity and it will be our first ever cruise. we travel often during the year but always do the independent thing, never packages or tours. so we are a bit cautious about being seen to be 'green' (hopefully not because of the roll of the waves!) we have prepaid our tips, so depending on the level of service may add to this and I am sure we will tip on the last day to the cabin guy/girl.
We have a balcony (concierge class) and to be honest I hate dressing up or even wearing a dress so I can see us eating in the cafes and in our room if necessary. What is dress code on Infinity in the main dining room please?
I have heard the tea and coffee generally are pretty bad, we like strong for both. Shall I stick to Cova coffee ?
Has anyone ever stayed on board at Sitka or Juneau just to get some peace and quiet. ? We are really taking this trip to see Alaska from the balcony of room - seems like fun. We are frequent travellers to Vancouver and USA and Europe but this trip will give us a break from driving and hopefully open a new world up to us. But I fear we are too set in our ways to do the whole socialising bit !! What shouldn't we miss whilst on board please ?
