  1. I was in the area just last year, Feb/Mar. I don't remember the water being rough. Although, what some people consider rough, it is not to me. The sea is mysterious. One day it could be calm and the next your in for a ride. Better to have meds with and not need them, than not have them and need them. If you get rough waters, there will be a run on what meds you can get at the gift shop. A few years back I was on a Med cruise. Hit was pretty rough water. The final leg was across the Atlantic in December. After the first day crossing, it was the smoothest water on the whole cruise.
  2. Last year, during all the crazy cancellations. It took 3 month, before I received my refund.
  3. There is a weigh limit. If you are over weigh, you have to pay an extra fee. They weigh you when you arrive. This is to determine, what the total weigh of passengers will be. You may not sit with your partner, as the weigh determines your placement inside the helicopter. If you are over the limit, you pay the extra fee and you are tallied as two people.
  4. The covid mask has to be removed, so the the oxygen mask will fit properly to your face.
  5. On one cruise I bought one of those watches, from the $10 sale. It lasted quite awhile. I figured if it died, cheaper just to get another one. Well the battery finally when. Got another one. It work good, until I when out in the heat and humidity of the Panama canal and it would stop working. Back in the cool inside and it worked. So I just picked up a cheap watch at Walmart and it works great
  6. I built a small table, lets call it. It fits in my luggage. It fits between the lamp and the wall. It's just tall enough to clear the lamp base. The cabins I get, the desk is on the same side of the room as the bed. I just plug it in regular outlet there.
  7. Been there, done that, would do it again. The days are broken up. Some over, Hawaii, some back. On my last cruise, it was 8 straight sea days, on the way back to home port. Enjoyed it.
  8. I emailed Princess Captain’s Circle Department March 2020. I did not receive my Elite pin, after the cruise I was on, to see if they could mail me one. Just today , they responded. Per business decisions made by Executive Management, Princess Cruises has discontinued our Pin and Passport and Stamp programs.
  9. Skynight, explains it very well. If this is your first time and maybe your only time through the locks, I would go with the old locks. If you can, do the full transit. The Coral and Island Princess make this trip. From the east entrance, you only go thru one lock on the Caribbean Princess into Gatun Lake and then back out to Ft Lauderdale. Port or Starboard, personal preference. My cabin is always on the Starboard side. In and out of ports, the canal or other interesting areas, I will be on deck moving all around to take pictures. As for excursions, read through the Panama Canal forum and see
  10. Like someone said, all the crew members will need to be vaccinated. They will need to be back on the ship and once everyone is aboard, probably quarantine for a period. There are a lot of ships that need crew. Picture is just of crew, on one ship. Kind of gives you an idea.
  11. Crown Plaza, easy walk. They also have a shuttle, that will take you to the ship.
  12. If you have never been before, the old locks, is the way to go. Much more interesting.
  13. All boils down to money. But to get rid of your Flag Ship. The Love Boat started it for them. I enjoyed sailing on her and was looking forward to sailing again on her.
  14. A Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. ship on a four-day pleasure trip was forced to return to port in Singapore and confine passengers to their cabins after a positive Covid-19 case was identified, showing the challenges of reviving cruise travel while the pandemic continues.
