  1. RoyalBoy, We are on the July 30th Reflection cruise out of Amsterdam! Is this the one you’re on? On the Roll Call we have an active group. Yesterday we found out there is a conference onboard of Infectious disease Doctors, PA, Nurses & other professionals in the field. Her in the U.S. Rapid Testing is now being produced in large numbers! This test gets results in 15 minutes! Yes, currently here in U.S. there is a high infection rate & spikes are happening all over! Even in N.Y. we are seeing spikes due to certain religious groups refusing to wear masks & social dista
  2. I live in Northern Westchester County of New York and our infection rate here is fairly low! Most people are wearing their masks in public and are observing social distancing. Restaurants and stores are open with restricted hours.
  3. We just booked the Movenpick Hotel for July 28-30th! Doubletree By Hilton was still showing sold out! If we were positive that the EU would open up for our cruise would have prepaid for the better rate! At this time we expect to fly out of JFK on 7/27th!
  4. Tommui987, Thanks for sharing your beautiful photos! Will post link to my photos upon our return!
  5. I agree that many rolls of film can be used taking pictures of Sagrada Familia! In 2003 I used a film camera and went thru three rolls just on the outside of church! In 2006 I filled up two large XD cards! Facing front of church if you want to street on right side got great pictures of workers on the towers. My zoom lens was able to get great pictures of various scenes on the church. Hopefully weather cooperates on Sunday while outside taking pictures! Forecast now is 50% chance of rain.
  6. Amazing photos! Thanks for sharing! Next Sunday we will be there to see this amazing People’s Church!
  7. We were in Barcelona in 2003 & 2006 but Sagrada Familia was not open inside for visits! I had pictures of the ever changing outside between the two years and even between days! Amazing transformation! Mskaufman, Thanks for sharing your beautiful pictures! I hope to be able to capture the beauty of Sagrada Familia inside! In 2006 we were at Park Guell and loved it! It was the summer when there! That Fall HP came out with their commercials using shots taken there and at Plaza Rieal! Bob, Thanks for suggesting taken pictures after sunset! We are having diner one evening nearby and
  8. I will be in Barcelona soon! I will be visiting Sagrada Familia in the late afternoon and wondering if anyone has suggestion in taking great pictures? I’m using a Olympus OM-D camera !
  9. We leave on a Mediterranean cruise on the Reflection on 9/18! My tours just showed up on the APP on this past Friday. The events on the ship supposedly don’t update until approximately two weeks before cruise!
  10. We have used our AMEX in Europe on previous Mediterranean cruise! We also used our MasterCard there also! Our next visit we plan to bring both!
  11. I just read that Venice, Italy has banned cruise ships from docking in the city! I wonder how this will affect Celebrity from going there in the future! We visited Venice twice on the Millennium and loved this visit! https://www.express.co.uk/travel/cruise/1163154/cruise-ship-venice-cruises-ban-italy-holidays-latest-news
  12. Here is a link to LaGuardia Airport giving times for TSA Security. Normally from the NCL pier to LaGuardia Airport on a weekend should not be bad especially early in the morning! Traffic going to departures has gotten better but initially looks like organized chaos! Weekdays travel can definitely extend the travel time due to work traffic and construction. https://laguardiaairport.com/#/
  13. We are on the Reflection in September! I downloaded the APP and in the beginning the only ships tour booked showed! Looked nice! Subsequently, next two tours did not show up and yesterday original tour disappeared On my calendar! Our Express Pass was easily processed and has time to checkin! I don’t expect anything to substantially change until beginning of September. We will see!
  14. I have used Abe’s of Maine often and they also stand behind their sales! www.abesofmaine.com Living in New York I have visited B&H and store is amazing! It is like being a kid in a candy store!
