  1. THAT's my girl!!! My "dog"...the best!!! And loved being on the "Star" with you!!! :)
  2. Maybe try X....in the "family" but less expensive...but it is...a much larger ship.
  3. It IS complicated...especially as you AGE!!! We have a "Medicare Advantage Plan" here in the US..which means we are covered world wide...because it is an HMO. BUT...that doesn't cover other expenses when you travel...eg...your spouse is injured/needs to be in the hospital...and you need to stay in a foreign country/fly home etc. with him. and on and on!! MY DH is now 83...and has several "pre=existing conditions" ...which creates an entirely "new" scheme!! And that makes insurance SO expensive...I used to "self insure" ...thinking that it was JUST the cost of the cruise...which we would have spent that $$ anyway...but now...everything that can happen along with an illness over seas...does come into play!! I USED to think that the coverage from my CC company was good..but that does NOT cover pre-existing conditions...and everyone needs to understand that...when you have some of those...it makes a difference!!! Please check your CC coverage!!
  4. I know... and I know that you will "watch out for her"...not that she needs that...but good to have "buddies" on board!! Have a great sailing...LP
  5. NOooooo...are you 2 on board?...we are on X for that crossing...but will be on board with O and AZ again...trust me...we'll find each other on the same ship again!!! :):)
  6. Dear friends...I think it MUST be different in the US...because it goes on and on!! :) Hope you are well??? LP
  7. Hey! Good to "see you"...and how can I say this "times two"!! ;) :) : LuAnn
  8. Thanks..and "ditto"...such a great way to spend out time...crossing the Pacific!! :)
  9. I would like to say...based on being LUCKY enough...to have sailed O a number of times...that 1) love the product (BTH I can only afford the T/As) and 2) Every one I have done...has been just the best...from the food..to the "lectures'" to the Trivia and 3) I have met people like "Paulchilli" who have helped me over the years ...because he is willing to share his expertise on travel/cruising etc. And you know what???? EVERYONE...has a different experience...but that doesn't make one "right or wrong"... I do love O...and I think the "reason" that CC exists...is to share our experience///help///thoughts///ideas etc. Can we just not try and be "compadres" in travel...??? and CARE about each other??? I think that is want most of us want????
  10. I don't know...but I would hope...that someone at O...would try and figure it out...I can't really imagine...that the cost/versus benefit ..works...maybe I'm wrong...especially since today...most people look/buy via the internet...not a "glossy" brochure...YES...I love the pictures...and the "feel/look" of that item in the mail...but...seriously...how many of these go "right into the re-cycle bin"??? I'm afraid ...MOST!! I think it is so important...that any corporation tries to "reach" their "customers" the right way...and in today's world...is that via "snail mail"??? Trust me...I'm "old"...and "old school"...but I'm not sure...that this is the best way for "O" to spend their marketing $$...especially if they want to "appeal" to those younger than "us"...as in...the "new crowd" ...who they hope to attract to cruising...I took my first cruise in the 70s...and I'm pretty sure that the "target" is probably not ME!! :) :) Just my ideas...
  11. Thanks everyone...for helping me!!! And making sure I understand!!! :) I"ll let you know what happens!!! :)
  12. You ARE the best...and you help us all!!! Thank you...over and over again...for all you do for CCer's and for those of us lucky enough to call you a "friend"...on "sea and land"....thanks...I sure hope I tell you that every time I send you that "email"!!! ???? :) :))
  13. YES YES YES...I am with you!!! 100%!!! And 99% go in the re-cycle bin!! STOP IT!!! It is a waste of time, money and resources!! Can you imagine how much each of those "brochures" cost?... I can..because I use to be involved in "marketing"...WHAT a WASTE!!! :) Thanks for saying this...!!! Give it up O....this is NOT the way to spend $$...
  14. Thanks my dear CC friend...I know we will meet again...just takes time!!! ;)
  15. Well...let's see...if it if good enough for "Prince George"...I guess it's good enough for me!! Seriously...some of you are upset that there will be ballet???
