  1. I have Samsung 8+ maybe I will upgrade before my TA on Mervaviglia next April. Would save room not packing DSLR Your review with photos is entertaining and informative. Thanks for posting 😀
  2. Looking forward to your review of Meraviglia. Spot on review of Miami. I live on the Gulf Coast side of Florida and our Beach prices are high from December to April. This is when most retailers and resorts make their money.
  3. Aero Awesome! Love it! Loved seeing your snow😁 Keep it coming
  4. It is wonderful and appreciated that MSC is offering a status match program. Wish other cruise lines would match.🙂
  5. Hi all😉, just contacted MSC because payment is due this month for my TA. Seems😚 MSC is running behind with approvals and status matching, was told that thats true about 2 months behind according to the very nice young man. I was assured that my 5% would be given as on board credit if payment date has passed. 😂 Any comments?
  6. I used my cane at Disney last week. As long as I used it in the cane position no problem. I did open it for one of the parades and was asked to please not use it as a seat. Seats are not allowed. I will not bring it to Europe, will stick with my walker.

    Thanks I intend to do that! My worry is booking air in January than ship arrives late. So I am going to book a flight late in the afternoon to relieve the stress factor.
  9. My thoughts too on being "Silver" but after TA cruise in April, I may decide to stick with MSC

    Thanks both Wow and hall. I did mean Hamburg for 2 hour. Okay hope ship arrives on time and my connections are good. I dont want stress LOL!
  11. Hi "family" I am also "gold" on Carnival 39 points. I sent my paperwork in October and have not heard from MSC. How long did it take for your approval? Sent picture of Carnival page with name and id# with list of cruises.

    Hello off MSC Meraviglia in Kiel May 2, 2020. I am elderly traveling solo and use a mobility walker. Plan a flight on Air France Hamburg to CDG. Would I be able to book a 2:00 flight? Do I really need to be at CDG 2 hours before flight? If I am off ship at 9AM take train directly to Hamburg airport, am I taking a risk? Thanks for any info.
  13. Hi Select, I did read October financials that Norwegian seems to be sound for 2020. I am waiting until January to purchase, dont know if I would be comfortable holding off until February for a May 10? flight. However, Norwegian is back on my list because of price and convenience. Yes, TPA (Tampa) and MCO (Orlando) are closest to me other than my home airport RSW (Fort Myers)
  14. Maybe we will need to find laundromat in Ponta Delgada LOL😅 The clothesline in my shower will be filled with my giant undies. I am on the Meraviglia sailing with copper
  15. Thanks for the feedback. I will stick with the rollator and not bring the cane. Sister though the cane would be better for easier access to tour buses and standing in lines.
  16. Thanks again for the excellent info. Dont have enough points with Delta, used them over the summer. From the feedback received, better to purchase with Delta / Air France from CDG to MIA and book return to CDG about 70 days out.
  17. Hi, I use and travel with a rollator . My sister has suggested that I also bring my cane-chair on MSC Meraviglia TA to use in some ports. Have any of you ever used this type of cane? Would I be allowed to open it and sit? Tried it at Disney and not allowed to sit. Would it be considered a regular cane on airlines? Thanks for any info😊
  18. I have posted a similar question before so please dont rat me out.🙄 Need to purchase airfare from either Paris or London back to Florida. The dates are probably May 10-12. I am on MSC Meraviglia TA and will be making final plans in January. Question If I buy Norwegian Air flights is there still a chance of failure 4 months out? Believe they received money to last until Spring. Is May still Spring? Would really like to fly🧓 Virgin or Delta and not use return to Europe portion, but I use Delta USA to visit family and dont want a mark against me.😆
  19. Thanks Mettins I will check to see if I kept any Sign and Sail cards. Its been a few years since my last Carnival sailing.
  20. Have a question on status matching. I have spread my cruising around different lines but I am "Gold" ( 38 points) on Carnival. When filling out application for MSC it states photo of card with status is required. Dont believe I ever received a card from Carnival. I took photo of sign in to with my member# VIFP page showing points and status and sent that. Do you think it will be enough?
  21. Its great to read an honest review. I booked my upcoming cruise with MSC Mervaviglia because of price (sailing solo) Happy to read about the positives. Thanks again☺️
  22. Hi Jaymmz, I am sure there many more of us than you think. Of course I go "solo" but I am an old lady. Why dont you visit the "Solo" board. You will find it below the Roll call boards.😀
  23. Selectsys, I am a Norwegian advocate. Happy to hear 2020 news on finances look good. Next January I plan to book one way from either CDG or LGW. Hopefully the rate for traveling next May will still be better than flying on other carriers. I live in FL so I have the luxury of being close to 3 airports that Norwegian is using at the present time. Westjet does fly from my home airport (RSW) and they offer one way. Dont like the fact of getting a decent rate with BA or Air France I would need to purchase round trip and not use return portion.
