    No problems!

    Seriously, no problems at all, I appreciate your intervention!

    I have spoken with the ferry company and they are in the process of merging the two reservations. Once they've done so I'll settle...

    Not just yet

    They are, I belive, trying to do the paperwork to make it happen... fingers crossed but, whatever, I'm looking forward to the trip!

    I hold all the cards

    It's okay, I've paid in full for the reservation that I made (well, the credit card has) but the other two reservations are just that. No money has changed hands... thankfully! :)

    You'll love this

    This is quite amusing...

    Jaidjen, very kindly (thanks!), put a 'hold' request in on that cabin when she spotted it was available. In the meantime I had lost patience and made the 'walk-on'...

    hmmm

    Seems I was incorrectly informed. Surprise, surprise!

    I have just managed to book a 'walk-on' ticket for the 5th August sailing from Juneau... yay! It has been painful to get to this point so I...

    Thanks

    Thanks for the heads up on getting to/from Skagway. I am loath to fly as I'm already down for something like 120 hours flight time this year and, well, it seems a little silly heading up on a ferry...

    Ferries

    Thanks for that, I suspected it may be that way. Unfortunately the ferry people seem hopelessly inept at actually booking anything and, despite asking them a week ago to issue me with a booking...

    Yes, mum ;)

    Good suggestions, of course.

    Do you know if the walk-on passenger side of things fill up often? If not, and they can't offer me accomodation, I might just rock up on the day and buy a ticket. ...

    Expensive

    I will if I have to but I prefer to do things by email for two reasons:

    1/ It's a long way away and it's very expensive to call
    and
    2/ I've got a record of our conversation when I get there...

    Do they actually have a clue? :s

    Flights booked

    I have bitten the bullet and booked the flights for my Alaskan leg of the trip as the prices were starting to creep upwards.

    Good point

    That's a very good point, of course. Though it'd not necessarily be the end of the world if there was no space for the tent in any case; I'm sure they're used to people rolling out a mat and...

    Decisions, decisions...

    Let's hope not! I'm still unsure what to do so I think I'll leave the decision for now. I know what people are saying about the cabin situation though so I know I don't have for ever to decide.
