  1. I did it....I booked it. It's stopping at quite a few places we wanted to see. So now we can get a "taste" and decide if we want to spend more time - Niagara Falls and Mac Island were two on our list...and grandkids live in Detroit. Plus we liked it goes through most of the lakes. I know we could drive to these places, too, but don't always want to make DH drive everywhere! Booking now added in the air fare and a better drink package which helped add it on. And it's a refundable deposit...(minus a bit) so that's a good choice to me.
  2. We are very interested in the one that goes from Niagara Falls thru the lakes. Have never been on a river cruise before and use a big boX as a travel agent so am a little clueless as where to go from here. Off to read this board!
  3. I just went back to put a deposit on a hold - and it won't take my credit cards! I have tried 3 different cards and all get the same "we are experiencing difficulties" messages.....I had held two - funny, the one that says pay by the 14th is still there. Guess they leave that up a bit longer that they say....but also have one that needs the deposit today. And they don't want my money … odd! Update - went back thru and it worked. Had to exit out and exit back in again.
  4. I just used it as I added it with the link to my Delta card. I have a different log in for the Hilton card but AMEX now knows that. So I was only able to use once. I purchased OBC off the Princess page. Our cruise is booked thru …. X.... so I wasn't sure if that would show up as a payment to X or a payment to Princess so this seemed the better option. Thanks! Now to wait for Princess to offer a gift card offer before the holidays to take off a little more.
  5. JB - another quick question - how long would it take to get to the port from those locations on a Monday morning? Thank you for your help 🙂
  6. THANK you for all the detail! That will be very helpful!
  7. What beautiful photos! I also wondered about London. We are coming in early in September for a Princess cruise - so do not need to stay in the cruise ship port area but have NO idea where is good place to stay. I have quite a few Hilton Honors points so would prefer to use those. Any suggestions? Something in an interesting area with reasonable transportation to port when needed. Thanks!
  8. I just wanted to say Hello to a fellow Husker! Glad you have a cruise coming up - hope it's somewhere warm as I look out the window to snow....
  9. Is this online on the Princess site or thru another option? Just asking as I see in fine print "your clients". Thanks for any advice!
  10. We just got off the Caribbean in New England and spent a lot of time at Vines. Wished I could say what brand some wines were but we like dry wines - my husband the rich dry reds and I like chards, roses and reds a long as they are dry. We had no trouble finding wine to drink (and had the sip & sail) . I did ask about some wines we had had the previous year on a California cruise and the Vines bartender said they will sometimes get different wines on the California side versus the east coast. We had some good blends (one in particular on the Vines menu) and there was a really good buttery chard I had as well.
  11. We just did this in September. The day we were at Bar Harbor, we had to go down stairs early and do a quick process with medallion and passport. Our excursion left around 845 so we had to get in line around 645. Took a bit to get it started (and the line was LONG!) but it moved fast and they looked at your passport and logged you in. When we got to NYC it was another line, quick glance at passport and paperwork and out the door. The line took much longer than the second it took to look at the passport!
  12. Have them make you a Cranberry Mimosa! The BEST! Great ideas here, keep them coming!
  13. Thank you for posting about the Island! I get so tired of all the complaints about her as we will be on her next fall for European Capitals. Looking forward to your review! In any size font.
