  1. The reason the trolley's online tickets are not accepted on cruise ship days is because the cruise ships offer a trolley excursion that is NOT HoHo....PLUS vendors offering excursions through the cruise ships generally are not permitted to book cruise ship passengers privately or directly.
  2. Looking forward to using an Enterprise rental car at Monterey in November. Thinking I should call the office on DelMonte to communicate that we are on the cruise ship & inquire about pickup at the tender pier.
  3. Rented online a car in Monterey with Enterprise on DelMonte. I was hoping they would come to the tender location to pick us up. Did you call several days in advance to arrange that? Or did you call when you were tendering in? Were there many people from the ship using cars from Enterprise? We are using the Old Town Trolley in San Diego, and meeting friends. Booked a ship's tour in San Fran. but may cancel & use a HOHO or Vantogo.

    Main Navigation Font Color

    That is my problem too.....too small & color too light!! I had to turn all the lights on in the room to read these!

    Formatting and images

    I am having lots of trouble reading within various boards & topics: 1. Color of font much too light in color 2. Font size too small. 3. Signatures now show all the detail & thus are too long. How to condense or shorten?? 4. Too few posts per page. Where is the place to make adjustments.

    cases of wine, Carried or checked.

    Really a shame that you are only allowed 1 bottle per person "free" on a 28-30 day cruise!! They should say 1 bottle per week per person free thus allowing you to bring 4 free per person!! Considering how much you pay for such a trip!! Same gripe I have with the Elite mini-bar -- no matter how long the cruise, one only gets 1 mini-bar.....should be 1 mini-bar per week, so if on a 28-30 day cruise, you would get 4 mini-bars free!!!

    Is St. Maarten/St. Martin ready?

    One of the many problems slowing the reconstruction of various buildings on Dutch & French sides is that some insurance companies have still NOT paid out claims, over 13 months after the storm!! Damaged islands have faced a shortage of contractors, workers and building materials to rebuild the many resorts, restaurants, homes, stores etc. There are some political issues too.
  9. And what's the maximum $$ per drink amount that counts? Being 3 star, would it be better for us to buy the bottles of wine for dinners than use the package for wine? What does the per-glass wine list have on it?

    Coffee Coffee Coffee

    Specific question: I have a coffee card from Royal Prin cruise we did about 9 months ago with only 2 holes punched because we used it for daily morning brewed coffee -- SO, can we use this card on an upcoming Ruby cruise in Nov 2018??

    Ruby's Dry Dock -- what's happening?

    Ruby's is in or going in to Dry Dock this month..... do any of you know what's going to be done? We are on Ruby Nov10-17. I have noticed on the deck plan that there is a restaurant called Share and no Sabatini's, which is hard to believe. What is Share? So fill me in! Think I read somewhere that Ruby is leaving the US, Alaska & Caribbean to go Down Under....is this true?

    Anytime Dining

    On the ships with 3 main dining rooms, the one at the Aft of deck 6 is Traditional. The other 2 are off the Piazza on deck 5 & 6, with the one on deck 5 being Anytime. The one on deck 6 is Traditional Early Dining and then around 7 it becomes Anytime. And the maitre'd will often seat Anytime people during Traditional Early at empty table, but don't generally do that the 1st 2 or 3 nights, until they see if the assigned people are going to show up. If you are Anytime and they ask if you are willing to "share", that means you are willing to sit at a table of 6 or 8 with passengers you may not know. We like to say yes to Sharing when we are not traveling with friends.....we are together at home, in the plane, in the cabin, in Horizon Court, etc. and it is really nice to meet some other people!!

    Still waiting for room assignment on the Crown Princess

    On the Ruby in Nov and booked balcony guarantee. In past always go assignment soon after booking; I keep checking if we have a cabin but nothing assigned. I continually cabin availability doing a dummy booking....Sunday I decided I wanted a specific location and a few cabins were available at that location, so contacted my TA to go ahead & change to a BC instead of guarantee at BF Mini suites have been sold out for quite a while, so no hope for that kind of upsell offer, so I created my own upsell!
