  1. Hi all, I hope you are all staying safe wherever you are! I can't wait until we can cruise safely again and in cruise withdrawl. I have a question that maybe someone can help me with. I am trying to find a list of cruises on the Cunard website. I know I used to be able to log in and find them but cannot do that now. Is that still available or do they not do it any longer? Thank you for you help in advance.
  2. Thank you for your response shipgeeks! I just noticed that we also have to include copies of our Diamond Status card from Cunard, and of course my other half did not keep his card. Do you know if we can send a copy of mine only, and then include his information...will that suffice? Or, if not, when we book our cruise with MSC, do both of us get the benefits of the higher member? Thanks in advance.
  3. Hi Richard, we are Cunard Diamond as well and have been thinking about doing our first cruise on MSC in 2022. Can you tell me some information please? Do you sign up for an account first or status match first? And then book a cruise? I tried to check their FAQ and am still confused about the order of things. Thanks in advance for any help.
  4. Thank you for taking us along on your cruise Kathi and keeping us abreast of the happenings on the ship. I hope you arrive home safely and healthy.
  5. Hi Christine, No problem and I hope you had a good time on QV. The Island Highlights is a scenic drive with stops at a local market, the Theological College and Robert Louis Stevenson's house. The Essence of Upolu is a scenic drive with stops at Plum Pudding Rock, Botanical Gardens with a presentation about the daily life of Samoans, and then to Tafatafa Beach where you are served a BBQ luncheon. Just keep in mind that this information came from our excursion booklet that was from our 2015 cruise, so may be different now.
  6. Glad to be following you along again with your blog! Have a great time and thank you for taking us along!
  7. Oh thank you very much! That is very helpful and I will let my friends know that option.
  8. Hi, we were on a longer cruise on QE in 2015 and I found my shore excursion booklet (yes, I keep these kind of things...lol). On Apia, at that time, there were 5 excursions. Island Highlights - 3.5 hr Coastal Villages & Tropical Gardens - 3.5 hr Essence of Upolu - 6.5 hr Aggie Grey's Beach Resort & Cultural Show - 5.5 hr Samoan Culture & Organic Plantation - 3 hr I think that we just walked around the town which was just off the ship. We first walked left off the ship and then came back and went right. If you hav
  9. Thanks for your replies. It will be next year in March when my friends will be arriving. I appreciate any information you find out. Thank you!
  10. HI everyone! I was hoping someone here would have the answer for me. We were wondering where the ship shuttle drops off in Melbourne? We would like to meet up with friends and would like to figure out a meeting point. Thanks for your help!

  12. Hi Bill and Mary, thanks for the great trip report as always! On a side note, when in Samoa was there any notification about the current measles outbreak? Just read a news update on the subject.
  13. Hello to you all! We are contemplating booking our first MSC cruise early next year and have been reading this informative thread. I still have lots to learn/research regarding MSC but was wondering if for my first question, you all may be able to answer it. For the status match, has anyone used Cunard? We are platinum with Cunard and was wondering what match we will most like receive. Also, what kind of confirmation documents do you need to show them? Thank you most kindly, in advance!
