  1. Now what? I just read where the port authority has cancelled all passenger vessels until 2021. Is this really true???
  2. Yes. We just booked the Silver Whisper Transatlantic sailing Sept. 8, 2020 from Barcelona to New York. Very excited to try something new. This is our third attempt to cruise this year. Praying this cruise will not be cancelled like the rest.
  3. We are brand new to Silverseas & quite excited. My question is: does Silversea honor our past passenger status with Royal Caribbean?
  4. With the entire Princess fleet down for 60 days I am wondering where all the ships will be? Anyone know?
  5. We have a similar situation. We have booked Staybridge Suites on Bath Road near the airport. Right next door is a Holiday Inn. Just google Heathrow airport hotels.There is a free bus at the airport to transport us to the street the hotel is on & back to the airport. I believe it runs every ten minutes. Feel much safer being near the airport on the day we fly home.
  6. We will NEVER fly through O'Hare again. We flew from London to O'Hare, then had to go through security to get our US flight home. We have Global Entry. However, we nearly missed our plane as it took three hours snaking through security with a lot of upset people all around us. Then add insult to injury had to claim our luggage & walk it 5 feet to recheck before racing to our flight. We were the last ones to board before they closed the door.
  7. After reading this column, I checked our exact flights on the American Airlines web site. Our flight Tampa to London (one way) this coming July is $1006.83 using EZ Air. Today American Airlines wants $10,098 flexible fare for our same exact business class flights. WOW!
  8. Came home from the Baltics via Amsterdam last August. It is the longest, biggest airport we have ever been to. Makes JFK, Atlantic & LAX seems small. Signage is not great either. So allow ample time.
  9. Thank you for letting us know about the Marriott Moxoy. I just changed our reservation from the Premier Inn next door to the Marriott. Even saved a little money for a much newer hotel. Love the advice we get through Cruise Critic.
  10. We also are sailing out of Southampton on the 23rd on the Island Princess. We are taking the National Express bus from Victoria Coach Station to Southampton. Have used them previously. Suggest you try Trivago.com and pick a hotel near Victoria Station. To get from Heathrow to Victoria Station is easy. Take the Picadilly Line underground, change at Hammersmith (no need for stairs as you merely cross the platform.) to the Piccadilly Line. If staying in Southampton suggest Premier Inn West Quay which is walkable from the bus station in Southampton.
  11. Last minute as in did on line check in 24 hours before our flight.. Only got boarding pass for first leg of flight with a partner airline. Told we need to get boarding pass at airport prior to boarding Virgin. Get to airport to find our seats were changed. There was no equipment change either time. Still do not know why this happened, but have read our case is not an isolated one with Virgin. Loved our flying experience with Virgin both times, but no longer want to take the risk of being moved around again.
  12. We have flown Virgin twice. Both times (at the last minute) our seats were changed and not at all what we booked. You may not get what you think you are getting when you get on the plane. That said I ended up with a middle seat and had no problem talking to my husband who had a window seat across from me. The foot stool was comfortable we ate our meal together this way. Just don't like the way Virgin seems to routinely change your seats.
  13. We are spending the night at the Best Western In Dover. Anyone with suggestions for dinner?
  14. As long as you booked them at the same time, you will automatically check in for both & get both boarding passes.
  15. If you have never been, you are missing a wonderful adventure. My hubby did not care about going to Cuba, but now raves about our visit there.
