  1. I cancelled my March 23rd Princess 7 day cruise on March 17th. Full refund posted to my credit card account on June 14th.
  2. Agree. Locals never eat McDonald's lobster rolls
  3. Your lobster was flavorless because it had been previously frozen. Nearly every restaurant on Portland Waterfront serves lobster. I would suggest Portland Lobster Company.
  4. If you rent a car, you can drive a half hour north of Portland to the Maine Wildlife Park in Gray, ME, You will definitely see one or more moose there. It's a lovely state park.
  5. Princess rep called me yesterday; prompted by an email from me. She said my full refund for March 22nd cruise ( I cancelled on March 17th) was sent to my credit card company on June 9th. Now it's up to credit card company to post to my account. It's taken a long time but I think Princess Cruise Line has done they best they could in an unprecedented situation. I will cruise with them again...eventually.
  6. Yes, we went to Boone's February 2019. Service was awful, food was terrible. Never again! We still like Dimillo's. I have been going there for 50 years ( starting when they were located on the other side of Commercial Street). They are on the their third generation of the same family ownership. I find the food good, the prices reasonable and the serve consistent.
  7. I live in Portland. Bam Is an easy walk from the Cruise terminal
  8. I have lived most of my life in Portland. I agree with all of the above. In addition, I recommend Casco Bay Ferry ride to Peaks Island.
  9. OP may have sailed last year but thought I would post to help others.I have lived most of my life in Portland.I would recommend taking a Casco Bay Ferry ride to Peaks Island. Ferry terminal is next door to cruise ship terminal. Ferry ticket is less than $8 per adult, half price for children & seniors. You will pass 3 lighthouses on your 15 minute boat ride. You can explore island on foot, by rented bike or golf cart rental. There is a wonderful historic golf cart tour for about $18 pp. Peaks is a quaint village/artist colony with a fishing and military history. Pebble beaches and beautiful
  10. I have lived most of my life in Portland. My vote for Irish Pub is Bull Feeney's. It is named for the famous Hollywood pioneering director, John Ford, who was from Portland. His real last name was Feeney. Bull was his high school nickname because he played football for Portland High School ( the second oldest public high school in the USA). There is a statue of John Ford ( Bull Feeney) in the Old Port area of Portland.
  11. I live in Portland. Visitors and locals like Dimillo's on the Waterfront. Avoid Boone's.
  12. Thanks for the advice. I bought one of these https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0734WVDBX/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o03_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1 If someone pulls it off my finger, it designed to break the ring so they won't break my finger.
  13. Would a plain gold wedding band be safe? I don't mind leaving other jewelry onboard but would feel naked without wedding ring.
