  1. ^ Agreed. It functions and looks too much like an iron for them to even consider letting you use it onboard.
  2. Would absolutely agree with this. While some people don't mind changing cabins, the true meaning of a B2B for us is same ship, same cabin. That way, we don't have any stress about moving anything at all. Also on turnaround day, we give our cabin steward the morning off (put the Do Not Disturb card/sign out) and just ask for evening service; they are so busy so having one less cabin to clean is a nice gesture. 😊
  3. Awww. That happened to us as well. We met some lovely couples on various cruises, kept up for a while, and then life interrupted and we all lost track. Try not to be too hurt or take it personally - often, something happens on their end which is not your fault at all (death, illness, divorce, a move, etc.). Sometimes this just happens. Enjoy your memories and wish them well in your heart. I do believe you have tried everything to find them but without a last name, this seems next to impossible.
  4. Yes, and my hope is that a single step will be to stop labelling the legitimate Karens as troublemakers. 🤣 Seriously, Alaska is beautiful and it was the last cruise we had to cancel before Covid (family vacation with our grown children, so excited!), BUT - you would not find us on a cruise ship in 2021 to any destination. Even with the vaccines, the closed borders, and quarantine upon returning, it will still take time.
  5. Mmm, had a yummy Pina Colada at Magens Bay in St. Thomas some years ago. Delish!
  6. I believe this is a valid question. For starters, do you know how dirty, germy, and disgusting our purses get? Yuk. I barely want to think about it. 🤪 This is why I never put my purse on the table. I understand about not wanting to hang it off the chair - I mean in Europe for instance, doing this invites purse snatchers and pick-pockets. Having said that, I don't want to put it on the floor either. So with my cross-body bag, I tie the strap in a knot and hang it on my leg just above my knee. It's not the perfect solution, but no one can really see it that way, and I always know whe
  7. ^ Thank you for the update Scott. 😊
  8. Our RV parks are completely full already with Canadian snow birds who cannot drive to Florida this year. As sad as we are that we cannot cross the border, we are glad that it is closed. We think it's the right move at this time, given the ferocious spread of this virus. We miss our cross-border shopping and eating, but will get back there eventually. 😊
  9. Us too. Walk to Little Italy for dinner, walk to drug store or grocery store if need be, walk to the pier in the morning. We paid a little more to be in the tower - great view.
  10. Not sure if your plans are set in stone, but having sailed both ships, I thought I'd weigh in. Ovation to Alaska was our most recent (and probably last ever) cruise. Everything about it was fantastic, from the ship itself, food, service, ports, experience, weather, etc. I realize some of those are variable, but we had a blast and did NOT think Ovation was too large for Alaska. On the contrary, we enjoyed having something to do on sea days. The ship is glorious and we would sail on her again in a heartbeat. Emerald Princess - well, we spent nine days aboard her some years ago and ca
  11. NOT an improvement, in my opinion. I liked the option to expand the sig if desired but I definitely do not want to hide all signatures. I may have to, though. So many, including mine, are long and the way it used to be was better, at least.
  12. I think you probably mean well with your comment, but those of us who are in the high risk category WANT to live life as we used to, but cannot. I sincerely hope you never get cancer because this pandemic has absolutely stolen the limited amount of time I have left. I wish I could go on a cruise - I wish I could go anywhere - but sadly, I do have to stay home. I would politely ask that you show a little grace for those of us who cannot choose.
  13. Even with your disclaimer, what you are suggesting is not possible at this time. Maybe some day - - but at the moment the border is closed to non-essential travel and people have been turned around when they tried to enter Canada. IF one was permitted to cross with the intention of driving to Alaska, they are issued an "in-transit" pass and must go directly to Alaska, no sight seeing, no dilly-dallying. Many tourists were fined this past summer for sight-seeing on their way to Alaska. I realize you said this is the "best way" and in a perfect world it would be an exceptional driv
  14. All the best to you! Glad to hear it wasn't as horrible for you as some people have it. God bless. 🙏
