  1. I've been to a lot of Mayan ruins, including Xunantunich in Belize and Kohunlich in Mexico. We went to see the ruins at Tulum only because we were staying right there. I thought these were the least impressive, nothing with any majesty at all. The only thing unique about Tulum is that they are the only Mayan ruins site actually on the ocean. Not sure I would waste a day on this, unless you've done everything else.
  2. Just as an aside, I used the water bottle filling station at O'Hare airport and thought the water taste was disgusting. Tasted of nasty chemicals. Never noticed it in the past.
  3. I agree. I live in a suburb of Milwaukee and Milwaukee has some of the best and best tasting drinking water. The suburbs can't wait to get Milwaukee water piped out to them. It kills me to see people around here polluting our planet with plastic bottles when great water is available right out of the tap. That being said, I understand that there are places where you don't want to drink the water out of the tap.
  4. A liter of Acqua Panna mineral water was in our suite each week. I believe they were available elsewhere; I may have seen them listed on one of the drink menus in the bar.
  5. Yikes, we were on the Have It All package on the Eurodam or I would have been upset to pay $4.50 for a 16-ounce bottle of water. The ingredients listed on the bottle were: purified water, potassium bicarbonate, calcium chloride and magnesium chloride. Do we need all this stuff? What's wrong with just "water"?
  6. We were tested in the middle of the our 2-week cruise, August 15 to August 29. Of 800 or so people, no one tested positive. Don't know why you would think there would be Covid onboard.
  7. Yes, it is not such a big deal. And since we're embarking in Greece, we don't have to deal with the Covid test 72 hours prior. I guess desperate times call for desperate measures, so you have to look at it that way, if you still want to cruise.
  8. I wouldn't worry about it, but it was in the email they just sent me: If you have not already done so, please also complete the following checklist. These are required for boarding. Complete Online Check-In and required documents: Risk Acknowledgement Vaccine Attestation Cruise Contract Download or Print Boarding Pass Complete the Health Questionnaire (72 to 24 hours prior to embarkation) Complete Passenger Locator Form (before 11:59PM the day prior to entering Greece) Bring Proof of Vaccination to the terminal NEW COVID-19 TEST REQUIREMENT
  9. Thanks. But I wondered about that because it says the assessment must be filled out between 72 and 24 hours before boarding.
  10. The health assessment won't be available to me until August 12. We leave August 13 for Greece. I am filling out the form for 2 households and don't want to hit any snags right before departure. Can anyone tell me what the assessment is all about? Complicated, or can I just answer the questions for the 3 of us and breeze through it? Thanks,
  11. All of our 2021 cruises are available for guests who have received their final dose of an approved COVID-19 vaccine at least 14 days prior to the beginning of the cruise and have proof of vaccination and proof of a negative, medically observed viral COVID-19 test (PCR or antigen) taken within 72 hours of their embarkation. For guests embarking in Europe, we are conducting mandatory COVID-19 antigen testing at the pier pursuant to the EU Healthy Gateways Protocols. This test will be complimentary, and a negative result will satisfy our new testing requirements.
  12. Well, I wouldn't have even thought of checking the menu on the app, so thanks for sharing.
  13. Could you help me navigate the Navigator app? I am on the Eurodam August 15 and when I pull up dining in the MDR, all they are showing is one menu (different for breakfast, lunch and dinner). Is there a way to get the menus for each day of the next 2 weeks?
  14. We are on the Eurodam stopping in Haifa August 24. I have 11 people going on a non-ship-sponsored shore excursion to Jerusalem. If HAL is going to change anything, I wish they'd hop to it.
  15. Thanks. I guess it's what I expected.
  16. Does anyone know if you spend less than your shore excursion credit (from the Have It All Promo), does the remainder go as credit to your account? I have $100 (x 3 since there are 3 of us) and am considering an excursion priced at $89.95 per person. Thanks
  17. Holland America, but they're also still stopping in Israel. Don't know what's on their minds! They encourage ship shore excursions, but aren't requiring it - YET!
  18. Most casino neophytes don't know that craps is the best game in the house!
  19. Sailings out of Greece will be fully vaccinated too.
  20. I just put the cruise ship, never mentioning the one night hotel stay, so I went back and got everything in there. I hope this doesn't complicate things, since just today I got the PLF document in PDF format along with the QR code for entering the country. I wonder if I will get an "edited" copy.
  21. Yes, I was surprised but pleased to get that QR code today. And we don't arrive until August 14.
  22. Well, I see they blocked out the name of the TA I used, but it was one of those large cruise consolidators that usually throw in some perks.
  23. Sorry to say I booked this with ***** The woman is no expert on documentation and just got back from a 14 month layoff due to Covid. She also gave me wrong info from the get-go, when she told me that the insurance policy was "cancel for any reason" when it turned out it was cancel for medical reasons only. So you can understand why I don't know who to believe anymore. Final word thanks to everyone's advice: I am NOT going to renew my grandson's passport since it is valid to May 22, 2022 (5 1/2 months after cruise ends). But I will bring it along, along with his birth certicate and government issued ID (driver's license). From what I read on NCL's website, this should do the trick!! Thanks everyone!
