  1. Check out the 4 all family coolers, they keep things at 2-8 C (35-46F). I haven't gotten mine yet, deciding between the $139 or $199 version. I called Genetech, the makers of Pegasys) and they said that Pegasys can only be at room temp for 24 hrs so these 4 all family coolers look like my best option.
  2. I'm not cruising until Nov 1st. I was just checking for updates.
  3. I was just looking at the cruise check in form and saw a question asking if I was traveling with anybody that I would want to sit with for meals. Looks like Ama might be assigning tables for meals. It also asked if I was vaccinated. Judy
  4. Check out the 4 all family insulin cooler. https://4allfamily.com. looks like a thermos and can keep things cool with the gel pack for many hours There is also a lid that you can put on that is a cooler when you plug it into a usb port or 10,000amp phone charger. I'm getting the $139.99 one for my trip to Jordan and Egypt. On the plane, I will keep it plugged into the usb port. In the hotel, I hope to use the fridge and in between I will use the phone charge. I plane on traveling with 2 phone chargers. I will ask the tour guide if there is a way to freeze the gel pack. I'm having diff
  5. 6:30 is sleeping in to me!!!! My problem may be that I don't have enough spit at that time!
  6. Yesterday, Ama changed their policies and you must be fully vaccinated to board their ships. They also recommend a negative PCR test but are not requiring it. I hope this doesn't effect anybody. Judy
  7. Which company/cruise is doing daily testing? As far as I can tell, on my AMA trip to Jordan and Egypt, we just have to test when we get into Jordan ( if not vaccinated), Egypt (if not vaccinated) and going back to US.
  8. This is the first time traveling with refrigerated meds, I don't know if the hotel/cruise staff will refreeze the gel packs. The Frio bag will be an emergency back up.
  9. Thanks, that is helpful. I'm thinking of buying both the Frio bag and a medical cooler that looks like a thermos. It comes with a gel pack and a lid that acts like a cooler when plugged into a USB port. I can even plug it into a phone charger. One problem with relying on gel packs is that I will not be able to refreeze it. Thanks for the suggestions of buying a remote temp sensor.
  10. Thanks, I thought that I had asked this before but didn't see it. So then I thought that I had asked on a different forum. Judy
  11. Does the Frio bag keep the meds at 8-10 degrees centigrade (about 45-50 Fahrenheit )?
  12. My next trip is a river cruise with Amawaterways and in March, I started taking medicine that has to be kept at refrigerated temperature. Does anybody have any suggestions on what I can do to keep it cold during a 12 hr 30 min flight with a 2 hr layover and then a 3 hr flight, not to mention the time to/ from the airport? Airlines will not put it in the refrigerator and I don't want to keep asking for ice ( but will if I have to). Thanks Judy
  13. I'm planning on going to Jordan and Egypt in Oct/Nov and for Jordan, you need a QR code. US vaccination cards do not have this and there is no digital system to get a qR code. I'm going to assume that I need to be tested in Jordan and Egypt.
  14. Good to know that it is not counted against on board baggage. I'm looking at a cooler that you can plug into a usb port or use an external battery (ones that you use for phones).
  15. I recently started taking a medicine that needs to be refrigerated, do all cabins on ama boats have them and are they cold enough? Also, how do you keep the meds cold getting to the boat? Thanks Judy
