  1. We have left the shows so many time because of it being too loud. Even with eye plugs for me it was still to loud. For us loud does not mean better.
  2. I never have enough fabric. Sewing for a cruise is fun and it is fun to wear what you sew.
  3. They came out nice. Are they iron on transfers?
  4. The pants are wonderful. I make a lot of wide leg pants. They are so comfortable to wear. I like the color. Enjoy your cruise.
  5. https://www.today.com/news/passenger-dies-covid-19-amid-outbreak-carnival-cruise-ship-t228939 She was from the Vista. Very sad.
  6. There are so many. And some with their cubs!!
  7. The bears are out today! https://explore.org/livecams/brown-bears/brooks-falls-brown-bears-low
  8. Happy to help. You will have a nice balcony with that cabin.
  9. Good to know about E436. I was always afraid to try it. Thanks Astor Flyer & MissP22 for the info.
  10. Not at all noisy. I found that rooms away from the elevators had more noise. People walking down the halls talking. Another thing that was important for us was that there was a room across the hall from us, or the elevator shaft. There are some rooms on Emerald deck that have a plain wall across the hall from them. I found that there was a hissing noise from what was ever behind the wall. At times I could hear it in the cabin. I have been on Regal 15 times and all time (after the hissing rooms) stayed by either the mid ship or forward elevators. 319 is also a nice cabin. Cabin 436 is over a bar. There might be noise from that.
  11. Second thread on this board or this link https://boards.cruisecritic.com/topic/2125803-recycling-clothing-among-cc-members-part-two/page/24/#comments
  12. I would put them on the recycle thread. People might see that there is a new post and might want what you have to offer.
  13. The bears seem t be catching salmon today. https://explore.org/livecams/brown-bears/brown-bear-salmon-cam-brooks-falls
  14. And NO for me too. Covid would have to be over before I even think of taking a cruise again. While I enjoy going on a cruise, I can live with out it. Life can still be full with out a cruise for me.
  15. I wear these with everything. https://www.skechers.com/women/shoes/skechers-on-the-go-flex---gem/136393_BBK.html
  16. I forgot to add the day time clothing in this post. I bring one long white broom stick skirt, five pairs of pants and eight tops. The tops can be worn with all the pants and skirts that I bring. I bring two sundresses and two shrugs. I do also bring a sweater and a shawl. I bring accessories for all. I can fit all my stuff into two 20 inch rolling carry on, including my meds. I make most of my cruise clothing, and choose fabric that is light in weight and does not wrinkle and can be washed. So, I do over pack and love it!! I want choices on what I can wear. I also use packing cubes and folders.
  17. On a seven night cruise two for formal nights and four for non formal. If needed sent to ship's laundry and repeat. BUT, I find that in the end of packing I always throw some more in!!
  18. Here is a web cam that will go "live" for the bear viewing season in Katmai Park in Alaska. It will be live wild brown bear, so no control over what you might see When the salmon run, you can see lots of brown bears fishing the stream. Right now the highlight is on, (will give you a idea of what the bear viewing will be like ,t will turn live. You can also visit Brooks camp there to view the bears. https://explore.org/livecams/brown-bears/brown-bear-salmon-cam-brooks-falls
  19. Have you thought of a inside and one out side cabin on Plaza Deck. There is plenty of quick food there close by for your teens to enjoy. It would save money. Also I think that you only have one sea day. Would you really use the balcony that much? Also when you are viewing glaciers, I found it best to be on a public deck in the back of the ship, so I got a three side view of it all. I did only one Alaska cruise on Tahitian Princess (a smaller ship and different class of ship) We were the first outside cabin after the Plaza. We just love it. The location was great . Just a thought.
  20. Good to hear. I have cousin in Canada, they got their first shot and have a 16 week wait to get their second shot. What you wrote mean that they will be able to get their second shot much sooner? Mine were three weeks apart in the US.
  21. WOW! what a trip. That will be great to see the bears. Post some pictures when you get back.
  22. Bear Cam at Brooks Falls - Katmai National Park, Alaska, USA " Bearcam is set to go live on June 14 at 12 p.m. Eastern / 9 a.m. Pacific. https://explore.org/livecams/brown-bears/brown-bear-salmon-cam-brooks-falls
  23. You can ask, but might not receive. Happy cruising.
  24. Only once did I have my shoes cleaned while on board Tahitian Princess. It was a 14 day Alaskan cruise. I was walking in port and stepped on dog Poo. I tried to clean it up on the grass/ground while walking back to the ship. When I got closed to the gangway, (no where near the ramp) I took my shoes off to walk the last part to to gangway and on to the ship. I walked on board with the shoes in my hand and a officer saw me and came over to me and ask me what happened. I told him and he took my shoes and said he would get the clean and have them returned to my cabin. He was happy that I did not want to track it on board. That was the one and only time I had my shoes cleaned while on board.
  25. I just read your reply again As long as you have a sofa bed in you cabin you don't care about the seating inside. For me that would be fine too. At least two people can then sit at the same time.
