  1. I check online to see if there are any holes in the schedule, see where the last cruise ends and the next cruise begins. Since a dry dock is required every 5 years it is not too difficult to get info. On RCI the Radiance is pulling into Singapore on 9/30/20 and the next cruise is 5 weeks later going from Singapore to Australia.
  2. Pitches for the Chicago Cubs.
  3. It is a rookie mistake to book the last cruise before a dry dock or the first cruise after a dry dock. Ask anyone who was on the Sun or the Getaway in said situations.
  4. Glad to take a 2 hour bus trip to the port, most ports are a nice place to visit, would not want to live there. EXCEPTION: Honolulu.
  5. We had time for lunch downtown, a little more than an hour, was not included in the price. Found all the tour guides in Vietnam, 3 of them, to be very hard line communist party people, not fun to talk to, would give false info if they did not know an answer.
  6. We found the entertainment to be very good on both NCL and RCCL. The best show we ever saw at sea was We Will Rock You on Anthem OTS. We have not done an Oasis class ship yet, but we found the Anthem the best in overall food, entertainment and layout of the ship. We would pick it or her sister ships, of which Quantum is one, over the Breakaway, which we have sailed.
  7. Check out RCI, they have three different ships sailing out of Barcelona between April 26 and June 1. Little late in the game, usually the best prices were a few months back when they first became available.
  8. No place in Spain compares to Barcelona, could spend a week there. You have plenty of time to find a different cruise, plenty of them start in Barcelona. Fly in a few days early.
  9. There is no winter in the Philippines, growing seasons all year. It does get down to 70F at night in December and January.
  10. Most everyone on the RCI board expressed the same sentiments, refused to believe anyone could be so spiteful. Claims he paid $8,000, few believe the cruise was actually canceled.
  11. Same complaints going down on the RCI board because the Allure, a huge ship, has propulsion problems and had to switch St Thomas to San Juan until dry dock next spring. One said he took the cruise to see friends on St Thomas, is past final payment, and is refusing to take the cruise, will never book RCI again etc etc. Hope he didn't book Epic as the replacement.
  12. Glad we visited Venice in 2015. Cannot imagine paying a fee, $5 to $10, just to set foot in the city. Gotta wonder what it would be like to be docking 3 miles away.
  13. We enjoyed spending a few days precruise in Singapore and a few days postcruise in Hong Kong, two great cities. The cruise gave us a taste of Thailand and Vietnam. Makes me want to return to Thailand, avoid Vietnam.
  14. 146.7 with 7 cruises scheduled through April 2021, expect number to go down.
