    New Amex Offer

    That has worked for us in the past and I'm hoping it will work again this time.

    New Amex Offer

    I was going to suggest the same thing. I've checked and checked the wording on Chase and I'm pretty sure that as long as you charge $10,000 (or whatever amount you would want as a refund) you DON'T need to charge the whole cruise on there. I'm certainly no insurance expert but that's what I read.

    New Amex Offer

    I just checked my Amex account and there is a new "spend $500 and get $100 credit " from World's Leading Cruiselines (Princess, etc.) Just a heads up for those of you with Amex cards.

    As long as you're asking about screen names- is boobasimcha what your grandchildren call you? And, as to the original question - it's been hit or miss what Princess does for Chanukah. There will definitely be a Chanukiah in the main lobby and they may have latkes - especially if you ask the Head Waiter in your section. Celebrity seems to think Chanukah is like Rosh HaShanah - they always have Jewish clergy on board and have a "service" every night where we ate latkes & sufganiyot , lit candles (electric) and sang Chanukah songs.

    Pacific Princess Questions

    Hi Jeannie! How long are you on board? We are on the Christmas/New Years cruise again. Looking forward to seeing you again!

    The food is pre-prepared by a Kosher caterer and wrapped in many layers so it can be warmed up anywhere. I tried to help a friend open one a couple of years ago and we needed a big knife. No worries about the food itself touching anything. As far as the candles - I saw these on Bed Bath and Beyond and am going to get them for myself. You could use a regular Chanukiah with them. https://www.bedbathandbeyond.com/store/product/led-hanukkah-candles-in-blue-set-of-9/5189206?categoryId=12807

    WOW!!!~ 😍
  9. I know the fall 2020 European (and TA) deployment will come out soon. Just wondered if any of the knowledgeable people on here had an advance copy.
  10. A couple of years ago I called Delta (our preferred airline) about the rumor I had heard about only being able to check in 2 hours ahead of our flight. The representative I reached had never heard of that , but just to be thorough, she contacted her supervisor and her supervisor contacted someone else. Consensus among the 3 of them was that NO ONE was aware of Delta ever having had such a policy. I think it's an urban myth that gets passed around on here.
  11. I'm sure it doesn't! 😳😦 Thanks for checking so quickly.

    New Wine List Rolling out on the Golden

    Thank you all for the info. I showed my husband the new wine list and, even though we have the premium package, we will be bringing some bottles from home.
  13. Does Nickolas then go on vacation? We board the end of January and are hoping to have Ben as Maitre D' in Blu as we have had the last couple of years on the Eclipse.
  14. They are returning from a transatlantic and , if memory serves (which it doesn't always) , there is no luggage valet on transatlantics. They want everyone to walk through customs with their own luggage. But, other than that, you are SO RIGHT!!!! Worth every penny!
  15. Do you happen to know which ship she's currently on?
