  1. Purchased $58/day in early December for a 7-day Baltic cruise on Jewel. Received an email offer for $51/day yesterday and easily made the switch.
  2. Got an email listing many Cyber Monday "deals," one of which was Buy one, get one half off deluxe beverage package. Followed it and saw same price that has been there since I booked: $55. Called and the very nice woman told me, no it's actually off the on-board price of $69, and that the awesome sale price would cost us almost $1,000 for a 7-night cruise (incl taxes). They can set their prices wherever they want, but they didn't inspire any customer loyalty by lying to me.

    We're looking at this too - our port times are 10-5. I'm also concerned that Shore Excursioneer is a middle man - I'd rather book directly with a reputable local operator, but am having a hard time finding recommendations. Does anyone have any? Thanks.
  4. Feel like I should be able to figure this out, but could use some help. The cruise schedule says we'll be in Panama Canal/Gatun Lake, Panama from 5 a.m. to 3 p.m., then in Colon from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. (I understand that the ship will sail from Gatun Lake to Colon between 3 and 5 p.m.) Can anyone tell me what else is actually happening during those hours? For example, will we be transiting some locks during part of the 5 a.m. to 3 p.m. time? If we opt to do a shore excursion, do we go through the eastern locks first, then get off the ship? If yes, about what time would that be? This is our first and likely only trip here - should we do a shore excursion? (Thinking about the Panama Canal by ferry.) And there's not much information on private tours, making me think it's best to go with cruise tours. Is that the case? And wondering why?
