  1. I would love to see some pics of your cabin. We are booked in it this August for Alaska. I know it will likely be cancelled but I will still go in my dreams.
  2. The company has had zero income this year and used your $300/person to pay his mortgage and feed his family. I would hope that the cruise season can reopen and he still has a company to give you that refund when he is able. Tourism is the main source of income for many up there and they stand to loose everything.
  3. Thank you so much for sharing. We are supposed to be cruising Alaska this August. We haven't cancelled yet and are holding out a little hope, but realize your August cruise may be as close as we get this year. It looks like you had a great trip and your photos are beautiful.
  4. Thanks for posting the article, if posted before I missed it. It's great hearing that Royal is taking care of their crew. I also liked seeing that they are taking such good care of my ship. I'm still holding on to a little hope that I will sail her in August. (I know, likely not happening, but it will be my 60th birthday celebration. Trying not to burst the bubble before I have to)
  5. I decided on My Time Dining last night, dinner at 5:30. I even preordered on the Fridge Menu. I showed up to the dining room appropriately dressed, and spot on time. There was nothing. I really mean nothing. No service, no kitchen staff and no food. What the heck?? I gave up and ate a bag of cookies.
  6. So glad you were able to make that decision. I hope more are able to do the same. Their season is short to start with and this current situation can easily wipe them out.
  7. I couldn't agree more!! Seems ridiculous to single out cruising as the threat but encourage flying everywhere and increase amusement park admissions and All Inclusive Resort stays.
  8. We arrived in the early afternoon the day before our cruise. This meant that we needed to make the most of our time in Seattle. We booked our night’s stay at the Westin Seattle which was downtown and in a great location to get to what we wanted to see. We found Pike Place Market an easy walk right down the street from the hotel and the Monorail literally a block away. The monorail saved time walking to the Needle. I pre bought our tickets to the Space Needle which included the Chihuly Garden and Glass. Having pre bought these tickets saved us time standing in line. Had we been there a week earlier (we cruised end of Alaska season), we could have squeezed in the MoPop which would have been great. Check out the websites for hours and exhibits.
  9. We started out in ocean view cabins and knew once we tried a suite there would be no going back. Now with retirement on the horizon and a more defined vacation budget, a balcony is still a must. We really enjoy our quiet time and ocean views. We have also learned to enjoy exploring other eating options on board. The MDR is our backup now, and dining options depend on what we want to do in the evening after a port stop or our day at sea. Our entertainment on board is the ocean and Mother Nature herself. We used to go to the shows but grew weary and are not a fan of the new water park and amusement park feel to ships. I love to sit or walk on the Promenade deck and enjoy the views. Star gazing after dark is wonderful at sea. We are also fans of the smaller ships and love the friendly feel they offer.
  10. We were on of the last Alaska cruises in September 2018. I did a review, here is the link if you would like to take a look:
  11. This is the Lysol spray I Buy: I do spray it on the surfaces I want to be sure are disinfected and walk away allowing it to dry on it's own. If it is drying to fast I spray again. We have been on a ship with a large Noro outbreak (our table mates) and had to be cleared by Medical so I'm not just paranoid. I am careful. To Disinfect:Surfaces must remain wet for 3 minutes then allow to air dry.For Norovirus surfaces must remain wet for 10 minutes then allow to air dryRinse toys and food contact surfaces with potable water after use To Disinfect:Surfaces must remain wet for 3 minutes then allow to air dry.For Norovirus surfaces must remain wet for 10 minutes then allow to air dryRinse toys and food contact surfaces with potable water after use.
  12. We started out early in the morning on Raiatea doing a 4x4 island tour with a trip to a vanilla plantation, followed by a sail on a 44 ft sailboat named Agaleion (an Admiral's Cup winner in 1973). My husband was lucky enough to take the helm and was instructed to sail towards Bora Bora. It was wonderful. If memory serves we had about 45 minutes between the sail and the Luau. We were taken to a small atoll by boat and given a wonderful dinner and dance show by local kids. I did a review on the cruise. No pics but here is the link: https://www.cruisecritic.com/memberreviews/memberreview.cfm?EntryID=21058 Sorry to the OP for the slight hijack.
  13. Go ahead and book both. It will be a busy day but why miss out? Our max was 3 in one day. We were on our Tahiti cruise and will likely never make it back there. Get in the best experience you can.
