  1. I agree. Canada has closed all ports until July 1st and that date could be extended. Cunard is still selling Alaska cruises online in June that depart from Vancouver, visit Victoria and Prince Rupert. That decision was made a few days ago. Where are you Cunard???
  2. It was recommended by our Federal Government. This is from the website: The Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) is recommending that Canadians avoid all cruise ship travel due to the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak. Cruise passengers include travellers from around the world who may be arriving from areas with known or unknown spread of COVID-19. The virus can spread quickly on board cruises due to the close contact between passengers. Older people and people with a weakened immune system or underlying medical condition are at a higher risk of developing severe disease. Recent cruise ship outbreaks of COVID-19 indicate that a large number of individuals onboard can become infected. While the majority of affected passengers may experience mild symptoms, there have been a significant number of cases requiring hospitalization and critical care, and some deaths have been reported.
  3. I've been following David Abel on Diamond Princess and his latest post was excellent. His positive attitude is commendable. He talked about a heated toilet seat in his mini suite on Diamond Princess. Does anyone know if these heated seats are on any other Princess ship? I'm booked on Majestic and Regal in balconies, but if the mini suites have these toilet seats, I'm thinking of upgrading. Thanks in advance.
  4. We were in a two bedroom Aqua Theatre Suite on the Harmony, Deck 9. We loved watching the shows and the noise didn't bother us at all. We never heard any noise from the Rock Climbing Wall. I would book another one in a heartbeat if I win the lottery! It was for our 50th wedding anniversary and it was WONDERFUL!
  5. After you dock, your ship must clear Canadian Customs. I would walk off with luggage and take Sky Train as the former post suggests. US Customs and security at the airport can back up. I would book the later flight and not worry about any delays. Vancouver has a great airport with free Wi-Fi so you won't be bored.
  6. I was on the Aug 9/19 Canada New England cruise. If you didn't get to the early show at least 30 minutes before and the late show 25 minutes before you would not get a seat. The cruise director told everyone on the first night to get there 30 minutes before. The singers and dancers shows were standing room only... The other shows, people just left.
  7. I was on the cruise too. HAL offered some of their tenders to get our passengers to shore quicker! That's great co-operation!
  8. I've done four of these. I got my elite perks. I had a party in my room and my friends helped me drink the mini bar. I also got bag of goodies in the bathroom. Not enough time for laundry turn around. It's on and off. No tendering and you carry off your luggage. The only hold up can be Canada Customs and Immigration in Vancouver but on my last cruise it was much better. I agree with the British Invasion show, it is stale. I am not doing the Oct 5 Star Princess, but I know someone who is. I am driving them to Seattle to make it easier to get on the ship. Last time we used Quick Shuttle from Campbell River store and it was so disorganized! The driver had no idea who was to be on his bus, we got turned back at the border! We left at 8 AM and got to Seattle at 2 PM! Dining room is open for lunch but they don't tell you. If you go, enjoy and if you book a single room you get 2 cruise credits. Lots of people do it.
  9. I traded in my mini bar for the coffee card. I got 15 free coffees although I wasn't that impressed with the coffee. Starbucks it isn't.
  10. I'm on the CB right now and I've blogged this trip. If you want to read my blog: http://linfish69.blogspot.com/ One thing I forgot to post is the crew is awesome!

    On other cruises we've been on you are allowed to carry on one bottle of wine per person. We are booked on the Queen Elizabeth to Alaska out of Vancouver. Does Cunard allow us to bring on a bottle each? Thanks
