EDIT: The remaining inventory has been opened up. Please read this thread carefully and make sure you fully understand which items you need to purchase - it is not necessarily intuitive! Specifically, Gameroom Badges are sold out for the first week of sailing, so your only gaming option on that week is a Library Card

See here for a (relatively) up-to-date list of remaining inventory:

Last Chance for BGG@SEA 2018 (Alaska)!! Remaining Inventory will be returned April 10th!


Earlier this year we announced the 2018 sailing of BGG@SEA would be to Alaska. It sold out within a week.

We decided to grow it a bit by adding a few more cabins and opening up a second week. We're just about ready to open up this additional inventory, first to those who had signed up on the waiting list (during this next week), and then publicly once we get back from BGG.Spring.

Through this process our pricing structure has evolved slightly so you only need to pay for the benefits you want access to. There are now three levels of BGG@SEA participation:
BGG@SEA Group Member
BGG@SEA Group Member w/ Library Card
BGG@SEA Group Member w/ Gameroom Badge
(these will be explained in more detail below)
EDIT: I can't stress this enough - this is a change from how our previous cruises have been run! You only pay for the gaming benefits you want access to, but that means you need to make additional purchases (beyond your cabin deposit) to get those benefits.
We expect Gameroom Badges to sell out pretty quickly on the first week, though we should still have plenty of cabins. So Library Cards will be the best option at that point. There's still plenty of cabins and Gameroom Badges on the second week (for now).

Where and when are we going?
If you're with us for the first week, we leave from the port of Seattle on Friday, June 22, 2018 and return to Seattle on Friday, June 29th, 2018. The second cruise leaves Seattle on Friday, June 29th, 2018 and returns to Seattle on Friday, July 6th, 2018.

Day Port Location Arrival Departure

------ ------------------------- -------- ---------
1: FRI Seattle, Washington 4:00 PM
2: SAT Cruising
3: SUN Juneau, Alaska 12:00 PM 9:00 PM
3: SUN Alaska Inside Passage
4: MON Skagway, Alaska 7:00 AM 8:30 PM
5: TUE Tracy Arm Fjords & Glacier 7:00 AM 12:00 PM
6: WED Cruising
7: THU Victoria, British Columbia 9:00 AM 6:00 PM
8: FRI Seattle, Washington 6:00 AM


How much will it cost?
We've negotiated group pricing for a variety of cabin types. Keep in mind that the prices below are 100% inclusive of all taxes, port fees and gratuities.

Stateroom Category Total Solo Total for 2 Total for 3 Total for 4
Interior $2,400 $2,700 $3,500 $4,100
Virtual Balcony $2,600 $2,900
Ocean View $3,200 $3,500 $4,300 $5,100
Balcony $4,200 $4,500 $5,400 $6,300
Junior Suite $6,000 $6,300 $7,300 $8,400
Grand Suite $7,700 $8,000 $9,100 $10,200
Owner's Suite $10,000 $10,300
Stateroom Category Total for 5 Total for 6 Total for 7 Total for 8
Family Ocean View $6,100 $6,900
Royal Family Suite $12,700 $13,800 $14,900 $15,900
Gaming Access Each
Adult (12+) Gameroom Badge $150
Child (4-11) Gameroom Badge $75
BGG@SEA Library Card $50

Right now we are only asking for a $500 deposit for each single/double occupancy stateroom and $1,000 deposit for any room holding three or more guests. Even with the additional inventory we expect to sell out both weeks. You are also encouraged to put in your deposit early as stateroom selection will be done in that order. Payments for the remainder will be made through the BGG Store after we get through this initial rush of deposits. All payments are fully refundable (based on the schedule below). Full payment will be due no later than Tuesday, April 10th, 2018.

One thing to keep in mind, the first prices you see online generally don't include the following: (which are already built into our stateroom prices)
Taxes, Fees, Port Expenses: $191.61 per person
Pre-Paid Gratuities: $94.50 per person (or $115.50 for suites)

Uh oh, I need a refund. How much will I get back?
Use the table below to determine how much you will receive based on when you request a refund.

Is today... Refund Amount
On or after Jun 12th, 2018 Sorry, no refund
On or after May 21st, 2018 50% of total price
On or after Apr 11th, 2018 100% of total price* less deposit
Before Apr 11th, 2018 100% of total price*
*less 2.5% processing fee if more than 60 days since payment


Ok, how do I get in on this?
Simply to go the Geek Store and buy the "Stateroom Deposit" item for the category, week, and occupancy you wish to reserve. At some point before April 10th, 2018 you will also need to purchase a "Remainder ### Occupancy" item for that same category. Every reservation must be paid for by purchasing both a "Deposit" item and a "Remainder" item, the latter of which varies based on the number of occupants in the stateroom.

At the same time you need to decide what level of gaming access you want:
A Gameroom Badge gets you the traditional BGG@SEA experience of gaming with us in the dedication meeting space. We're breaking it out into a separate charge now because some of your family members may just be along for the ride and don't want to game, so no need to pay extra for them to do so. This also allows us to make our best effort to manage the occupancy of the room to keep it "full, but not crowded".
A Library Card allows you to come into the gameroom, grab a game and go play it anywhere on the ship, bringing it back right afterwards. This includes access to our overflow gaming space in the Main Dining Room on Days 2, 3, and 6 from 7:00am - 4:00pm (sharp).

To summarize here's the requirements and benefits of each level of BGG@SEA participation:

BGG@SEA Group Member (buy a cabin)
$100 onboard credit per stateroom
Dine with other BGG@SEA Group members every night (if desired).
Welcome Reception, Star Lounge, Day 1, 7:00pm (hot and cold canapés' and open bar)
Access to overflow gaming space in the Main Dining Room on Days 2, 3, 6 from 7:00am - 4:00pm (sharp).
Access to BGG@SEA exclusive Group Shore Excursions (details TBD)
Farewell Reception, Star Lounge, Day 7, 7:00pm (hot and cold canapés' and open bar)
Commemorative BGG@SEA 2018 badge (color-coded to participation level), neck wallet, and draw-string bag.

BGG@SEA Group Member w/ Library Card (buy a cabin + $50)
Everything in BGG@SEA Group Member above
Ability to request one game (via traditional Geeklist) be added into the BGG@SEA Library from the full BGG Library.
Ability to checkout one game at a time from the BGG@SEA Library and play elsewhere on the ship.

BGG@SEA Group Member w/ Gameroom Badge (buy a cabin + $150)
Everything in BGG@SEA Group Member w/ Library Card above
24/7 access to the dedicated BGG@SEA gaming space in the Conference Center on Deck Two.

Re: BGG@SEA'18 New Pricing Structure; New Inventory Coming Soon
If we have a Gameroom Badge, can we still check out games to play elsewhere on occasion, or do we also need to purchase a Library Card?

A Gameroom badge also allows you to take a game out of the room to play elsewhere. I'll add that in above.

Just to be clear, when the badges were taken out and paid for separately, that was for game room level access, correct?

Re: BGG@SEA'18 New Pricing Structure; New Inventory Coming Soon
I see I'm able to preorder for week 1 now. Is that under this new pricing structure or the prices on the previous post? or is it an error and week one is still full?

Also does anyone know of a compelling reason to cruise during the independence day holiday? I imagine they do special stuff, but it would have to be pretty special to skip the holiday with the kids.

Thanks!

No, everything not sold out yet. We are currently taking care of those on the waiting list. We'll begin taking deposits from everyone else sometime next week.

So do we have to get on the waiting list, or wait for it to open up to the public to make a deposit?

The waiting list is currently closed to additions while we work through the backlog. I anticipate deposits will be open to the public sometime tomorrow morning.

Just placed my deposit and noticed it said it's for the June 22 trip. Going back through I'm not even seeing options for the June 29 trip.

EDIT: I found the option now. It's in the drop-down menu. I forgot that they were adding inventory to the first week and just assumed it would all be for the second week.

Yes, it's in the drop-downs.

We still have cabins for the first week (but no badges, so Library Card's only).

We still have both cabins and badges for the second week.

Ok, I've never booked any of the cruises or anything so I'm confused.

If I book the cruise, that price doesn't include gaming?

I have to pay for that separately?

I just want to make sure that if this is going to happen that I do it right.

Thanks,

Jonathan
