  1. I am on the same cruise and want to fly direct from Toronto and had not tried Flight Ease yet. Figure I may call PCC.
  2. Great pictures of the Kawarthas - you had a great beach. I am sure you are missing your summer visit. It has been one of our quietest (with boat traffic) and breaking temp records this year We are located near Canal Lake on Trent Severn Waterway. Stay safe.
  3. I waited 80 days and received refund today. More money seems to be moving now. Good luck everyone.

Our cruise was June 5th. Good luck everyone and stay safe.

Not under glass for sneeze control. Having watched people's frustration trying to get peanut butter into little serving containers and then using fingers. I avoided all of that. I would say be cautious and possibly avoid handling tongs and large spoons. I sent a note to Hotel Manager and nev
  8. I have been unable to log onto or open HAL website last couple of days. Just wondering if this is a widespread problem and other people are having trouble.
