  1. I've always gotten it back the next day.
  2. Lois, I wish you a wonderful trip!! I tried to get on this cruise but was too late, someday I'd love to travel with you. I also leave in 2 weeks for a cruise. I'm retired and went nuts and am going on a 40 day to New Zealand via Hawaii, South Pacific on Holland (solo of course). Have a great cruise!! ๐Ÿ˜€ Sue
  3. Barb, I'm totally tech challenged and haven't figured out how to post a link, I know I have to figure it out!! Go to the Magellans website and put "foldable travel hangers, set of 2" in the search window. Sue
  4. Hi Barb - I also take Woolite and have used my inflatable hangers for years until they finally wore out. A couple years ago I discovered these plastic fold up hangers from Magellans that are my new favs. I have 6 of them now, they fold up to nothing for the suitcase but have notches in them that are perfect for hanging bras and are plastic so they don't hurt your clothes. Sue
  5. I'm following this too because I'm on the same cruise as zelker and since it's a long one I have some items that are hang to dry. I figured I'd have to hand wash them but if you can get wash and return wet that would be wonderful!! Thanks, Sue
  6. Hey yourself๐Ÿ˜€ It's the old-timers disease!!! ๐Ÿ™ƒ Yes, I was responding to the OP, I would never insult you!! I'm not going to try again because he probably won't listen, I just get so upset at people like this!! Have a wonderful cruise in Oct. I'm also going to be sailing, I think I'm crazy 'cause I've never done one like this but I'm taking Holland 10/13/19 from Vancouver to New Zealand via Hawaii, some South Pacific islands, Australia and all around New Zealand, 40 days!! I'm excited and terrified!! Bon Voyage to you and have a wonderful cruise!! Sue
  7. I know I'm going to insult you but I would never sail with Costa and their response to you is why. ๐Ÿ™„ I always sail solo and have never used Costa. There are plenty of other lines that are really great to solos. I never heard of someone deciding who they want to sell the cabin to. Good luck!! ๐Ÿ˜Ÿ
  8. This is why I love the boards, I get great advice from seasoned travelers!! I just ordered a bunch of small containers of vitamins, etc. and will space them out between my suitcase and carryon. I don't know why I didn't think of smaller containers, duuuuhhhh!! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ This is the longest cruise I've taken and I travel solo so I need all the help I can get!! Thank you all so much!!! ๐Ÿ˜€ Sue
  9. OK, so let me get this straight. Thanks for all the info but I'm still not really certain. I have 4 prescription medicines that I will pack in the original bottles. Then I have non-prescription supplements, calcium, fish oil, Imodium, over-the-counter allergy medicines, (Coricidin, Zyrtec), multi-vitamin. I normally put the non-prescriptions in zip-lock baggies and label them, it takes up so little room. Are you telling me I have to put the big calcium, multi-vitamin, allergy, etc. bottles in the suitcase? I'll do it if I have to but it will take up so much room. This is the first really long cruise to Australia/New Zealand I've taken and am beyond excited. I'll do whatever you tell me but I'll need a bigger suitcase if I have to take all the non-prescription bottles!! ๐Ÿ˜€ Thanks so much, Sue
  10. What about non-prescription such as vitamins, allergy meds, intestinal meds, etc. I usually count them out and just put in a ziplock bag but have never been to NZ/Aust. I only have 3 prescription meds and can take them easily in the bottles. Should I put the big calcium, etc bottles in my suitcase?? Thanks, Sue
  11. Oh wow, Shmoo, this is just what I wanted!!! Thank you so much, I'm not too tech savvy and couldn't figure out how to do this, it's wonderful. Thanks again, Sue
  12. Not sure where to post this question but I am trying to find out if there are any cruises from Sydney Australia to either Hawaii or the US. I want to do a New Zealand cruise but don't think I can survive the day long flight at my age! So I thought it would be nice and relaxing to cruise down under!! I've found a trans-pacific on Holland that goes from San Diego to Sydney and then another that goes from Sydney around New Zealand, dates from 10/19/20 to 12/5/20 for the 2 combined. But I can't figure out how to get home short of flying. I would be happy to go from Sydney to Hawaii and fly from there, that seems to be the best option. Anyone have any suggestions, etc. please let me know. Thanks so much, Sue
  13. Yes I am talking about ms Amsterdam, the older, smaller ship. Thanks so much, I really appreciate this info. I like to be able to launder stuff and hang to dry. Thanks again, Sue
  14. I know this has been asked but I can't find it. Does the Holland Amsterdam have self service laundry facilities? Thanks, Sue
  15. It's Harv and Marv's Tours in Juneau. I've gone with them before and they are excellent! Sue
