  1. Thank you all for your help and thorough information - helped so much Stay well and safe
  2. Plan to stay in Southampton 1 night pre in September - and want to be centrally located so we can see what there is to see - any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. We sail out of Mayflower Terminal and then come back into Ocean and will need to spend another night before the next cruise - opinions and suggestions welcomed. Thank you - stay well and safe
  3. In regard to obstructed oceanview on Sapphire - please know that the obstructed window is behind the bed - so unlike a normal oceanview where you could at least walk up to the window you would have to stand on the bed to see out - they are all on Emerald deck 8 and there are varying degrees of obstruction and when bidding no guarantee as to where you would end up - yes you would have light coming through the window and maybe some slight view of the water but have to be okay with looking out at lifeboats, or the other obstructions - for an Alaska cruise so sad not to be able to have a true view - just my opinion - Enjoy and good luck!
  4. Thank you so much for your response - so appreciate the help Stay well and safe
  5. Does anyone know if you can Google Cast from a device to the television? Thank you for your help - stay well and safe
  6. Do you know if one is able to Google Cast from a device to the cabin TV? Thank you - stay well and safe
  7. Ken - Thanks again for all the information - in regards to the Laundry - we too are elite and are going on the 32 day next month - I was under the impression that it is only for machine washables - and no hangers just comes folded? We were on several years ago and everything was returned to us in a bag non folded and horribly wrinkled - I am hopeful that was just a mistake but would appreciate insight as to what you did send in (other than unmentionables) Thank you again you have truly been a help!!! Stay well and safe and easy journey home!
  8. That is disappointing - are you sure they received your counter? If you have the email both received and sent - would print it out and take it with you - could not hurt to ask again at check in but make sure you bring your proof - Good luck - beautiful destination - Enjoy - Stay well and safe
  9. Ken - I cannot thank you and your wife enough for the time and effort you have spent so all of us can be sailing with you on this cruise, You have given us so many thought, suggestions, and fantastic photos to prepare us for our cruise. Continued wonderful journey - stay well and safe
  10. Congratulations and question - how far in advance did you submit your bid? I noticed that your sailing is the next one that we are on are wait listed and showing no space and we too have put in a bid but thought since nothing was available that the option would not work but you prove that it might still be a possibility? Thank you for sharing and have a grand trip
  11. If this question has already been asked - I apologize - but at the different ports/countries you have traveled on this sailing - did you have "their currency" or were US Dollars/Credit cards accepted for purchases? Your pictures and insight have been so helpful - doing the Buenos Aires to LA on 3/4 - so thank you again for taking your time to help all of us! Stay well and safe
  12. Thank you so much and I am sure my luck they will change to one (1) bag per cruise starting Feb 1 - ha ha Happy New Year!
  13. For Elite is laundry unlimited or goes by number of days onboard - thinking of a 30 day cruise and how much complimentary laundry we would receive? Thank you for your help - stay well, safe and Happy New Year!
  14. Thanks Tom - for Elite with free laundry - do you know how many times you can use this perk - thinking of a 30 day cruise - Thank you - stay well and safe and Happy New Year
  15. Thank you - the App is giving us the choice of Pacific Moon or Santa Fe - was hoping someone has opinion of which of these would be the best choice? Appreciate the help! Stay well and safe
  16. Thank you for all the positive feedback - we are planning on the 32day Buenos Aires to LA in March We do anytime dining with request a specific time and usually like more midship dining room - see that there is Pacific Moon and Santa Fe - any thoughts on which is best or if we are missing a better option? Thank you so much for your help! Stay well and safe
  17. Thank you for the information about arrival into Long Beach - Greatly helps with plans - stay well and safe and have a wonderful holiday season
  18. Thank you for sharing - I see that you flew into Long Beach Airport - could you advise the time from the airport to the ship and the cost of Uber? Did you also price taxi? Thank you so much for your help
  19. Have not been able to find any private tours from LeHavre - we ended up booking through the cruiseline full day with lunch on the Seine - not ideal but the only other option was to take the bus trip into Paris and then arrange for a private tour for a few hours - just decided with all that is going on thought it better for us to take the escorted tour - although years ago I did take the bus in and then took taxi from place to place I see that you are in Sacramento Ca - I am in Morgan HIll CA - have a wonderful trip - stay well and safe
  20. Have sailed out of Southampton and other cruise ports several times in the past. One time we flew what was to be a non stop flight to Heathrow had a medical emergency onboard and diverted us for more than 3 hours and arrived into Heathrow about the same time the ship was departing. They did hold the ship as there were 14 of us on that flight - however the transfer was almost 2 hours and the driver was talking to the port the entire time not knowing how much longer they could hold based on the tides. Yes if we had missed embarkation they would have helped us to get to the next port - however remember that you miss that first day and even the second day as you will be traveling and the hope that there are flights into the next port of call. Two months ago flew into and out of Heathrow and it has become so busy and so crowded so definitely leave yourself plenty of time to not only get baggage, hopefully flight on time, clear customs and get out of the airport. Hopefully you might be able to change your flights - add on 1 night pre cruise either through Princess or on your own so that you are stressfree and ready to have a great cruise - Enjoy
  21. Thank you I had read that thread and know that It is not an ideal situation but it is our only option to see as much in that one day thus hoping for a private tour - but still have found no recommendations thus far. Appreciate your input
  22. Any recommendations for private tours from LeHavre to Paris and private tours from LeHavre to Normandy - Any help would be greatly appreciated - thank you - stay well and safe
  23. Grandma Cruising - hoping you are having a great cruise - we sail Quest on November 15 - 11 nights Submitted for upgrade on 10/22/22 - Discover Plus - V1 booked - options as follows - USD Veranda Plus - $100-$400 per person Club Continent - $400-$1700 per person Club Spa - $2100-$3600 per person Club Ocean - $2250-$4600 per person Club Owners - $2820-$5100 per person Bid $550 per person and received upgrade 11/3/22 to a N1 although there were N2 - so pleased with location not great about the tub/shower but will see. I had asked the question about Pending and it was about a week that it said Pending and then received the upgrade still not sure if Pending meant pretty sure or just goes to Pending once submitted although did notice two days before upgrade - no longer could I bid on the Club Ocean or Owners Suite Hope this helps with the spreadsheet - Enjoy your cruises - stay well and safe!
  24. Thank you for your response - still saying Pending and now think it is just what it says after one has generated a bid - thought maybe it was like RCG and that meant you were receiving the upgrade but since it has been days think not - either way a cruise is in my future!!! Stay well and safe
