  1. The fill-the-bag is every day, every ship, every cruise. No special needed for that. For Europe it's $30/bag, or unlimited laundry for $9/day for the cruise. Anthonyy7 are you sailing on Sept. 8? If so, we're also on that cruise. πŸ™‚
  2. I have Touch Note on my phone now, very easy to use!
  3. They are definitely Sweet Peas. Loving your flower photos!
  4. Thank you!!! I'll check out both of these. I know the grand kids don't care about pretty foreign stamps at their ages, so this sounds perfect. A good way to stay in touch while we're gone. They get excited about getting post cards in the mail that are just for them.
  5. What is this app called? I'd like to look into this. Just wondering if my 4 and 6-year-old grandsons would like it or prefer a hard copy they can put on the fridge. πŸ€”
  6. DH and I are late 60's and early 70's and we've never cared for the piano bar. Can't quite see the draw of it. So it isn't for all of us over 60-somethings πŸ˜‰ Give us BB King and the newer rock room and Billboard.
  7. Just seeing this, Rich (busy day yesterday)....thanks for posting. Makes me really glad we transferred all of ours awhile ago, before the PCCs were told to do this. What a hassle.
  8. Since you have 9 months before your stay, you could do what I do. After checking reviews on Trip Advisor and here, I find the hotel I want, and book at a refundable price. Then I watch prices every few days. I've gotten some excellent deals by doing this, as prices go up and down constantly. If I see a great deal (and they sometimes only last a couple days) I cancel my refundable rate and book the better rate. Of course there are times when the prices only go up, but then I feel good that I booked when I did! Presently we are booked at Movenpick for early next month based on recommendations from friends and others here on CC.
  9. Our second cruise was on the Rotterdam to the Eastern Med. after 13 years and many more cruises it remains at the top of my list of favorites, because I got to go to Egypt a life-long dream. Also loved Istanbul. Other favorites are the Voyage of the Vikings, also on the Rotterdam, and all European cruises. We’re retired now and enjoying longer cruises.
  10. Wonderful, will be following! We will arrive in Amsterdam Sept. 6 for a Sept. 8 cruise on the Nieuw Statendam. We have our tickets for the Anne Frank House and HOHO bus with canal cruise included. I'm eager to hear about the ports and ship. πŸ™‚
  11. Yes, that's what I do. Never had a problem (yet) with the post cards taking any longer than when we've sent them from port. My port time is too precious to spend it looking for a post office so I take the easy way. πŸ˜„
  12. I don't see it, and I don't have them disabled...
  13. I'm the same, the convenience is worth it for me.
