  1. Has anyone used a dongle as a bluetooth transmitter with the Quiet Vox used for excursions so their hearing aid can be connected to the Quiet Vox?
  2. Wow, I just ordered a package from Amazon. What a great idea. Thanks!
  3. That would be a good solution and cover any laundry sent out also. My allergies are not so severe with laundry products but I do not like any scented products and can't understand why anyone else does.
  4. There is a covered container with a round hole in the laundry room for lost items. It looks like a trash container but is actually for socks and other small items. You should put things you found there and search for your missing items there. The real trash container is just an open waste basket that is useful for the lint you empty from the dryer after you use it.
  5. Yes, I was taught by a fellow traveler to feel along the front edge where you can't even see.
  6. For just viewing wildlife, I recommend a land trip to Costa Rico. 20181206_123009.mp4 20181206_123009.mp4 20181206_123009.mp4 20181206_123009.mp4 20181206_123009.mp4 20181206_123009.mp4 20181206_123009.mp4 20181206_123009.mp4 20181206_123009.mp4 20181206_123009.mp4 20181206_123009.mp4 20181206_123009.mp4 Boi Bumba show video below.
  7. Viking Ocean ships hold 930 passengers. They can only go up to Manaus and still turn around. That is a 1,000 miles inland. In the Amazon region, there are very few roads. People travel by boat between towns. All goods and supplies arrive by river. Large container ships are on the river. There is plenty of land that is still forest. However, the Amazon is a very wide, muddy river up to Manaus. They use pilots to guide them. Going close to the shore doesn't sound like a good idea in such a large boat. When we transferred to smaller boats (12-20 passengers), we could get really close and even lan
  8. Lightly. Fabric Softener is not provided so you may want to bring a few sheets.
  9. I was born and raised in Oakland, CA but I have lived on the East Coast since 1970. We are taking the June cruise of Land of the Midnight Sun (Norway and UK) plus a pre-trip of five nights in Iceland. In January 2021, I think we may take the South America and the Chilean Fjords cruise but not booked yet.
  10. Hi Cool Cruiser, We traveled on the Viking Sea in December 2018 on the Caribbean to the Amazon. I am sorry I didn't get a chance to write a full review. Most of the included excursions were not great. Beware of the word Panorama. It means they just drive past the sights. The Boi Bumba show in Parintins, Brazil was the exception. It was a colorful display of singing and dancing with Brazilian flair. However, the excursions that we paid extra for were good to very good. My favorites were being in the water with pink dolphins in the Rio Negro (a tributary of the Amazon) and visiting an
