  1. We are getting excited for our first Clipper cruise! Anyone else on this sailing? It’s hard to find anyone that has sailed on this itinerary so also just putting this out to see if anyone pops up with experiences, advice etc Sent from my iPhone using Forums

    Armonia in 2019

    We sailed on the Armonia from Venice. I imagine the move to Miami is recent? In which case you won’t see much of the info you are looking for quite yet. We had 2 young adults with us so don’t know anything about the kids clubs. There aren’t really “features” on this ship for kids so it’ll just depend on the staff and what your kids are looking for. I would suggest planning really great port days and leaving the sea days for relaxing and pool time. Sent from my iPhone using Forums

    Mediterranean Embarkation/Disembarkation?

    We are headed out of Bari on the Poesia in May. I’ve been on MSC one other time in Europe...in and out of Venice. Our embarkation and debarkation was a bit different though. We were literally the last people on the ship due to some issues and we were practically the first people off because we wanted to make a train to Verona (so we carried off our luggage). So what I don’t remember is how they handled people getting on and off at different ports. I have zero recollection of this even happening! But, I think all of their cruises are like this in Europe sooo. Anyone have feedback on this? Sent from my iPhone using Forums

    Checking out Star Clippers

    I’m super confused by this response. Quizzes??? Is this like trivia? Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  6. Booked the last available jr suite on the Radiance last night (for Australia/NZ sailing). All regular balconies sold out. Afterwards, I see that it is a handicap cabin. Will RCI possibly downgrade it to an ocean view?? This was the cabin that the system automatically applied as it was the last one. I only figured it out by looking at deck plans after the fact.

  7. Sea Robin is the best! Every time we dock in Cozumel we use them. Always less than 8 on our boat. Sent from my iPhone using Forums

    Aurea experience Poesia

    Hmmm, ok. I really hope so but had read contrary information. You had the Aurea experience with the basic drinks package? Thanks! Sent from my iPhone using Forums

    Aurea experience Poesia

    Hello We have booked the MSC Poesia Aurea experience. I read an article where they said there was only one kind of beer with this drink package. Anyone know if that is true across all ships? Also, does MSC no longer allow a bottle of wine to be brought on? Sent from my iPhone using Forums

    MSC in Europe

    We are sailing on the Poesia in May...round trip Bari. A couple years ago we did the Armonia round trip Venice. We love MSC for the ports and the price! Also enjoy all the different nationalities on board. Question...we know that MSC embarks and disembarks people at more than one port per cruise.We didn’t happen to notice how this worked on the Armonia because we were last to board (literally) and pretty much first to disembark. So, do folks disembark at the same time as the rest are getting off for the port? What if it is your day to disembark but others are staying on....does that mean you can technically stay on longer??
