  1. I've decided not to do this cruise, several reasons................I've been to 90% of the ports and the ship mostly
  2. I'm thinking of taking this cruise as a retirement present to myself. 111 days is a very long time. Any advise comments from people who have done this Why don't you like island. What changed.
  3. Antarctica on the Coral , Jan 21st to Feb. 6th It was a spectacular cruise
  4. I always bring mine home for the grand-kids they are at the age now when I get home they count them to make sure I didn't take any! (brought 24 home just this January) I'm sure they eaten them all by now (even though my instructions are one a night)
  5. Thank you where did you go in Antarctica? I did a drive by cruise recently and want to see more
  6. I'm in my 70's and fairly fit- I would like to go to Antarctica in 2022- especially south Georgia and the Falklands How fit to I need to be- (I could not to kayaking but don't think I'd have a problem getting in and out of a zodiac. I can walk several miles---but not necessarily uphill or rocky any suggestions? comments?
  7. I’ve done the last cruise in September twice. Once the weather was warm and beautiful the other cold and we had snow shops in town were all open. Great end of season bargins
  8. I love the Coral as well I did not do many Princess excursions- I find the group size way to big and the tours so so I booked Volunteer point with Patrick Watts in the Falklands (he may already be full for next year) to be honest- this (other than actual Antarctica ) was a real highlight of the cruise for me for Montevedio and Ushuaia someone in our roll call planned some trips and I joined them (there was 20 of us I think total) I did do the punta Arenas I did the Magdelena Island Penguin reserve. After volunteer point it was a let down- but if I hadn't been to volunteer
  9. I was on the Coral Princess East Falklands (where Stanley is) is not a large place. Tours sell out extremely quickly Patrick Watts is usually booked 12-18 months prior to the cruise The picture of the penguins above are from volunteer point and could have been my pictures. it is a trip you will not forget
  10. I'm recently off the Coral that went to Antarctica. When the wind is at gale speed I don't think it matters whether your balcony is covered or not. I was on the Carribe deck (partially covered) and didn't not notice much difference between balcony and the uncovered front of the ship on the same deck. You will love this trip. I've done over 30 cruises with Princess and by far this was my favorite.
  11. I've thought about this, I do go ashore and see things, but you can see Antarctica without going ashore. would you tell people who saw glacier national park in Alaska from a ship they didn't see it. If you went to London and saw the London eye but didn't ride on it- would that be the same?
  12. yes your right that was a slight exaggeration! But we had several places where we could see them extremely well. ( on ice bergs etc or porpoising) well enough to be able to tell which ones were seen. I looked at several of the expedition type ships before I booked this one, and some of them are quite big too. For me, I saw what I went to Antarctica to see. Beautiful landscapes, Ice bergs and wildlife
  13. I saw many penguins close up (close enough to touch) on my "drive by cruise" we passed many icebergs with all differnt types of penguins (on the trip I saw king, gentoo, adelie, chin strap, macaroni, rockhopper, and Magellanic)
  14. Not at all. My goal was to go to and see Antarctica which I did i would do it this way again
  15. It was the lack of outdoor space and the feel of being on a ship they loved the buffet and crew to much “retail” space
