  1. On 2 Viking cruises I was able to take a small travel hairdryer with a diffuser and my Chi hair iron. I expected to have them taken away at check-in, but they weren't.
  2. Wow! Where did you find those? I love their ice cream and I usually end up gaining 10 lbs. by the end of the cruise (could also be the wine 😉). I didn't know they had sugar-free varieties of ice cream and cookies.
  3. We really like deck 8. The Explorers Lounge at one end and the outdoors at the other end. We found it bright and airy. We have booked a back to back cruise in November (fingers crossed) and on one leg of the trip we couldn’t get a PS so we booked a DV1 on deck 8 and are looking forward to trying it out. If the DV hadn’t been available on 8, we definitely would have chosen deck 7. As far as motion sickness is concerned, as you quoted me above, Meclizine was the answer for me. I came armed with everything — patches, ginger gum, Dramamine, etc., etc. But I took the advice of ano
  4. We loved that cruise in July 2019. You could spend several days at the Hermitage and still not see everything. The Gold Room in the Hermitage is a must see. St. Petersburg is a beautiful city and we would like to return. We enjoyed the Faberge Museum, Peterhof Palace and Yusupov Palace. We found the Catherine Palace a waste of our time. We also had time to appreciate the native Russian dancers and the St. Petersburg Ballet. Both well worth seeing.
  5. Excellent point. I hope we hear from YWW and that they are okay.

  7. Canadians will be heading home after a health check. https://www.cbc.ca/news/politics/coral-princess-return-champagne-1.5523020
  8. I agree with you Pammy and would ask if you have had any health checks while on board, e.g., temperature checks?
  9. Greaserman IMO, Princess will probably arrange a chartered flight to Toronto as was done for the HAL passengers that docked at Port Everglades last week. That was arranged through Eastern Airlines. Be patient. It will happen. But with the uncertainty as to timing, the insurance needs to be sorted. Wishing you and your parents the best.
  10. You or your parents should take Cruisepucks advice and get in touch with the insurance provider.
  11. Hi greaserman. Not great news for Canadians on the ship. Sorry. www.680news.com/2020/04/05/canadians-not-allowed-off-coral-princess-cruise-ship-due-to-new-cdc-guidelines-2/
  12. Ha! Do we live in the same country? Remember our attitude during 9/11? As somebody on a different thread said, “Can we rewrite Come From Away?” As you must know by now POTUS has cancelled our 3M order for masks. Once upon a time, our neighbour to the south was great, but not when the chips are down.
  13. Given one of their latest press releases, I was under the impression that the Coral Princess is scheduled to arrive early Sunday morning. So now having read the Sun Sentinel article, I suppose they will also be required to sit out there, and I assume that if they are given permission to proceed they will have to wait for the Zaandam and Rotterdam to depart.
  14. Thoughts on whether the departures of Zaandam and Rotterdam will postpone the docking of Coral Princess?
