    Cell Service

    Icy Strait Point had one cell tower for the whole town. When a ship arrives with 2000-5000 passengers the signal degrades because everyone is using it. It works, it just slow. That was my experience in May 2019 with Verizon. I ate lunch with a local bear guide and he told me the towns internet suffered when ships were in port. A-
  4. Hertz filed chapter 11 which is reorganization in May. This allows them to defer debt payments while they figure out how to stay afloat in a world where fewer people are flying or needing to rent cars. That said they have cancelled all orders for cars for the rest of this year and are selling off a lot of cars. What I see on the Anchorage website when I tell it I am from the UK https://www.hertz.com/rentacar/reservation/reviewmodifycancel/templates/rentalTerms.jsp?KEYWORD=CANCELLATION1&EOAG=ANCT11 CANCELLATIONS 1. Hertz allows you to cancel a prepaid reservation: a. online by the 'Modify/Cancel' reservation page b. by calling the Internet Helpdesk 2. A full refund of the prepaid reservation will be made: a. If the cancellation is made no later than midnight two (2) days before the date of your scheduled pick-up; b. Less an administrative charge of EUR 45.00, GBP 30.00, CHF 65.00, SEK 300.00, NOK 300.00, ZAR 450.00, DKK 300.00, AED 200.00, SAR 200.00, KWD 20.00, RUB 1,800.00, OMR 25.00, QAR 200.00, BHD 25.00, USD 60.00, PLN 200.00 if the cancellation is made after this time. 3. Refunds will be made to the credit card that the original booking was made on. No modification administration charge will be made for changes made online. How did you make your reservation, online? If online have you tried to cancel it and see if you get your money back? A-
  5. You can use an online service like fax zero https://faxzero.com/ You can use an email service for 10 pages free like this https://www.fax.plus/pricing/ Or if you have a VOIP system it may be included for free
  6. The new Edge Chromium browser is better than chrome with all the chrome features and none of the google tracking as its based on open source chrome. I still prefer Firefox. https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4501095/download-the-new-microsoft-edge-based-on-chromium
  7. Along with the other selections I would search in two places or post questions in the one of the boards below. https://boards.cruisecritic.com/forum/315-west-coast-departures/ which has these results https://boards.cruisecritic.com/search/?q="San Diego hotel"&quick=1 or https://boards.cruisecritic.com/forum/142-california-coastal-pacific-northwest/ which didn't have any results
  8. I would think they would would need to preserve a relative temperature without big humidity changes and temp changes inside to protect the interior finish materials. Wood and laminates expand with humidity and shrinks with heat, constant movement leads to cracking and issues with the coatings. I guess it would be a cost to replace vs cost to temper analysis.
  9. They should supply you with a smart device so you can be tracked and traced. :=) I have masks, more masks, and more masks along with sanitizer, more sanitizer and more sanitizer. I saw a joke add yesterday 1 free roll of NEW TP with a case of Corona beer.
  10. Actually all they need to do is require installation of a Covid-19 app on anyone that has a smart phone, my phone already has covid-19 tracing if I install an app, the apps do 14 day anonymous data that can tell you if you have been in contact with any one that tested positive. If you have an Android phone, its settings - Google and there it is Covid-19 notifications, for IOS its under health. So they can trace anyone with a smart phone, they just need to overcome the minor civil liberties issues of tracking everyone in the country everywhere they go.
  11. Mine is still refundable ( in hot dogs), maybe they changed the fare by mistake when they or HAL applied the FCC. A-
  12. Yes, But I think the cruise line will argue if can they move forward for something that happened in a foreign country with a foreign based company. A-
  13. Probably the first issue is jurisdiction, the ship did not sail from the US nor was the voyage to end in the US.
  14. Received port fees and taxes last night for my May 18 Maasdam sailing canceled by HAL to Alaska. Previously received my FCC for the same cruise. Earlier in the week received full refund from Princess for Sept 11 Alaska sailing. A-
