  1. We are doing a b/2/b next March on the Caribbean Princess. Appreciation the comments on how the process works on moving to a different cabin.
  2. Thanks for the responses. Will order some Yuan, mostly in smaller denominations to use for tips, etc.
  3. Will be in China in a couple weeks on Viking Ocean. When on a tour, wondering if the dollar is okay or if the Chinese Yuan is needed. Also wondering if most Chinese ports have ATM's available for local currency.
  4. Will be on the Far East Discovery Tour in September which I am looking forward to. Will be making dinner reservations soon and wondering what time any evening entertainment usually starts. Also interested in any comments on ships tours, which ones are worth doing and which ones to avoid. Thanks Mike
  5. Wonder if there is any problem bring small liquor bottles into Beijing, China for a post cruise land tour after an ocean cruise. Thanks for any suggestions.
  6. Was on the Caribbean Princess end of January and had one of the flooded cabins on Lido deck. Happened last day of cruise, middle of the night. Crew was very efficient in replacing carpet and taking care of us. Only problem was could not enjoy the fresh smell of new carpeting for the majority of cruise. Thoroughly enjoyed the ship, plan to cruise on it again next February.
  7. Also on the Far East Discovery cruise in September and somewhat concerned about the comments on the various land tours. Glad to hear some of the positive post-cruise comments about staying in Beijing what we are doing. As Ike stated about, I hope Viking will be addressing the tour concerns for this itinerary. Mike
  8. Thanks for the information. Getting some Yuan before we leave makes sense. Credit card will be AmEx, hope this is not a problem in China.
  9. Will be going to China with Viking Ocean this September. Wondering if Chinese currency is needed or if a credit card can be used at most restaurants. Thanks for any suggestions.
  10. Was on a TA to Europe in June and had a great time on the Pacific Princess. First time on the PP and everything went well. Really liked being able to walk between the decks as not nearly as many as on the larger Princess ships. No stage for the production shows, on the dance floor, very well done. Not the best weather still had a great cruise.
  11. Where ever we board a cruise, usually in Fort Lauderdale, there is usually a Dollar Store nearby where you can but a small liquid Tide for a buck of course and it carries on very easy. Its usually used for hand washing which works well. The bottle is way more than we need, so its left for the cabin steward if they want it.
  12. Thanks everyone for the quick replies. Will use the old 2018 form.
  13. Looking for a current Carnival Shareholder Benefit Request Form. Have last years that was good through July 31, 2018. Tried searching the boards but nothing came up. Thanks for any help.
  14. Thanks again for the updated suggestions. Booked a private car and driver for a day tour to Windsor and Eton. Liked the idea of a hotel pickup and drop off with no crowded tour buses to deal with. Will probably do a HOHO bus the next day, close stop by the Tower of London. Hope to see the Churchill War Rooms, plan to purchase those and bus tickets on line. The restaurant suggestions are appreciated, will check them out.
  15. Looking forward to our stay there. Staying at the Grange Tower Bridge Hotel, not real close to museums or theaters we would like to see. Taxi's will probably be our most convenient to get around the city. Thanks for all the suggestions and recommendations.
