  1. Does the QM2 have Catholic Mass Sundays or even daily? What about the other Cunard ships?
  2. Like many cruisers, my primary reason for taking a cruise is to see the sights at the various stops along the way... On my last cruise, a repositioning, I found a few of my scheduled tours cancelled because "the tour operator didn't feel he had enough people to make it worthwhile". Several others down the floor received similar notices on even different tours. For me my cancellations were a major disappointment -- I would have taken a different cruise or different cruise line. I am having difficulty understanding the rationale why an esteemed cruise ship company empowers a third party tour operator to disappoint me at will. I studied marketing with the best and perhaps HAL forgets that a product which they market is made up of several component parts -- in this case, one of them being the tours. I am pondering whether EXC means " Excellence" or whether it means "Expect Cancellations". Is this going to be the new HAL? ZU
  3. Hi --In Oct. 2020 it will be necessary to have a real or enhanced drivers license to board any domestic flight in the U.S. Sometimes I need to take a domestic flight to the west coast, rest a night and then take an International flight to my embarkation destination. Shouldn't my passport be enough id to get me on the domestic flight? I don;'t want to pay New York State their pricey fee. They are rather vague about what is the law. ZU
  4. I have thought about independent tours, also, but HAL always seems to threaten you with being stranded without passport , clothes, or cash if for some reason you get back late. Stories about what can happen (not just HAL) always seem to make the news services. I have read several this year. I wonder what percent of cruisers go with the independent tours. ZU

  6. Thank you all for your advice. ZU
  7. Greetings -- As a single traveler, I really don't wish to send my cash and credit cards through airport security. It is bad enough to send my camera, cell phone and binoculars and meds. I have heard too much about those criminal schemes where a team of thieves takes your valuables while you are still in a slow line to take yourself though a scanner. By the time you get through the scanner, your valuables are gone!. I have a money belt made of all plastic parts. Is it OK to use this at the TSA checkpoint? ZU
  8. Greetings -- What USDA grade of beef does HAL serve on its ships? ZU
  9. What is the USDA-rated quality of beef that HAL serves on its ships? Thanks, ZU
  10. Hi -- Does Cunard have Catholic Mass on board? All ships?, Some? Thanks in advance, ZU
