  1. We're booked on a Miami to Miami cruise leaving Nov 27 that includes the Amazon. It seems unlikely that it will happen, so I haven't booked air or researched the ports.
  2. Although the larger cabins in every category on the O ships are nice, we very much prefer the public areas on the R ships, as well as the smaller size of the ships.
  3. We booked 2 days with Red October in St P. They were wonderful at tailoring their standard 2 day itinerary to our interests. One person in our group of 4 had recently recovered from pneumonia and the driver was fantastic at helping her in and out of the van, chatting with her when she decided to skip a palace. The guide was amazing, interesting, personable.
  4. We love the cooking demonstrations; the pairs of chefs could be comedy teams. Usually, we find the lecturers quite good. On Canal transit day, get to Horizons early for a window seat; the person doing the narration was very interesting on our cruise. I like to play mah jongg on sea days; it was easy to get a game together. Reading (and dozing) in a shady area of the pool deck really makes me feel like I'm on vacation.
  5. It never dawned on me to bribe the maitre d'. There was no one else waiting for a cancellation or no show. Seems like a good way to make a passenger happy.
  6. One time, when we decided last minute that we wanted to eat in a specialty, we spoke to the host when it opened, waited 15 minutes and were seated when people without reservations didn't show up.
  7. No, DH doesn't eat pork and all the hot dogs at the famous place in Reykjavik were pork. We were disappointed.
  8. I agree that a land trip us better than a cruise for Iceland. We did not find it terribly expensive. We stayed in apartments or cottages for reasonable rates; for example, our beautiful, well located apartment in Reykjavik was $108 per night. We ate breakfast in and often picnicked for lunch. We bought alcohol in the duty free shop when we landed and drank at home, rather than in restaurants. I researched restaurants and found lots of good ones that were reasonably priced. Given that tax is included and there's no tipping, a $30 meal in Iceland is equivalent to a $23 meal i
  9. We spent 24 days in Iceland and wish we had planned for a couple more. The beauty and variety of landscape was incredible.
  10. susiesan, you are much braver than I am. The thought of being with a large group of unmasked people in confined spaces is very scary to me.
  11. My concern would be potential noise from having public areas, rather than cabins, above you.
  12. We've decided to take the 125% credit because we're reasonably sure we'd be willing to take a cruise before 2023. I don't think there's a right or wrong, just what you're comfortable with.
  13. We were booked on a cruise to Bermuda in August to celebrate (a few weeks late) our 50th wedding anniversary where we spent our honeymoon and our 25th anniversary.
  14. clo Your comment did not feel at all supportive. LHT28 Perhaps you could have expressed surprise in a nicer way than "Seriously". It's always wise to consider how your posts might come across. I don't think either one of you did that, and now you're just backpedalling.
  15. clo and LHT28, thanks for making me feel like a fool by your comments. That is unkind of you.
