  1. Thanks CJSKIDS for this great idea! I am also in Miami, like you, but in the Kendall (Southwest) area. We ventured out to two grocery stores and a pharmacy today wearing masks and gloves. We wanted to do three things at once so as to make full use of our very limited supply of masks and gloves. About a third of the people shopping were also wearing masks and gloves. We were able to get pork chops, bananas, tomatoes, and some other basic food, along with some over-the-counter medicine from CVS, so we are happy. Now we plan to stay home for the immediate future. It is nice to see people taking walks in our condo community, and so far, most of our neighbors are practicing social distancing, as are we. Good luck to everyone!
  2. We recently flew from Miami to Barcelona on AA to cruise on the Sky Princess from Barcelona to Ft. Lauderdale. I had our two medallions in my carry on bag. No problem at all. Enjoy your cruise!
  3. Thanks so much for your live review and pictures! I have been waiting for somebody to do this, and we will be joining you a week from today in Barcelona.
  4. I was able to upload the photos OK, although they weren't exactly centered, but apparently, good enough. Like you, I had trouble scanning our passports because of the glare. I tried quite a few times, with no success. Finally, I asked my husband to stand directly in front of the window where the light was coming in (even though I had closed the blinds), so that I could see his shadow on my I-Phone screen. I asked him not to move until I had finished scanning. He agreed to do this, and I did manage to scan our passports. It wasn't exactly easy. Happy to report that we received our medallions yesterday for our Nov. 17 sailing.
  5. dides, Thanks so much for your great review and pictures! We will be boarding the Sky on Nov. 17, and now know so much more about the ship. Welcome home, and thanks again! Barbara
  6. Thanks, Jim, We are on the Sky Princess with you, but boarding in Barcelona. Glad we don't need to be home to sign, I'll be looking for ours on Tuesday. Barbara
  7. Mine was exactly like yours today. There is a "!" on the travel docs circle, although all of our info is there. It also says medallions on the way, but I have not received any email with a tracking number. Hopefully this is all just another Medallion glitch. We are sailing on Nov. 17.
  8. Thanks, Lew, We certainly hope she ports in Barcelona on Nov. 17! One day at a time, and hope for the best!
  9. Thanks for this good news, like many others we are boarding in Barcelona on Nov 17.
  10. Looking forward to your review and pics. We board the Sky in Barcelona for the transatlantic.
  11. Thanks to everyone who answered my question! You guys are the best!
  12. Our ship will dock in Valencia. Can we walk from the ship to the cruise terminal in order to get a taxi there? I know that in some ports, cruise passengers must take a port shuttle to get from their ship to the cruise terminal, but I can't find this information for Valencia. Thanks in advance!
  13. We were very happy with the Days Inn Inner Harbor. It is 1 block from the airport train stop. It is also across the street from the Convention Center where we took a free bus all around Baltimore. We also enjoyed walking around the Inner Harbor area, lots to see and do. On cruise day, we took a taxi to the cruise terminal, maybe about 15 minutes. There is a great cafe, called Edie's, next to the hotel, where we had breakfast every morning. Highly recommend.
  14. Looks like we'll all be calling Princess or just waiting! See you onboard! Barbara and Orlando
