    Infinity drydock

    Yep, what everyone has said. We've had a great time despite the minor inconveniences. All six of us are healthy . The preventive measures put in place incovenced a hardworking staff more than it did us. The casino even washes the gambling chips ! (And with one cruise day left, I don't believe we will get the chance to serve ourselves anything at this point. It's been staff serving everything from around day five of voyage)

    No kidding ...I have always been...and continue to be grateful for anything given to me...

    Infinity drydock

    The return rate on the free elite bag of laundry was if it was left in the morning , it was returned the next day in the evening. Friends who paid for laundry got it back a little quicker. Elite breakfast has been held in the Tuscan Grill ( and served to you since the norovirus outbreak) and daily cocktail time was held up in the Constellation lounge .

    Infinity drydock

    Yes, three elegant nights ....but elegant is stretching it. Been very casual all the time. And...seriously probably too much TMI... but bring extra underwear... it's so hot and humid that you'll go through two sets in a day. ... seriously. That's the kind of packing hints I would appreciate :evilsmile::evilsmile:

    Infinity drydock

    Currently onboard the Infinity. Got letters in cabin from captain several days ago about norovirus onboard. Much sanitizing of surfaces with strong smell, hand sanitizer everywhere. No self service of anything...not just on buffets , but also drink stations and at dinner , bread and butter placed on your plate along with paper packets of salt and pepper. This morning, the library books were locked up and guests requested to check out books at passenger services (?) not sure how that'll work... lines move slower at buffets, do feel sorry for staff as they are running around nonstop. Do understand it's to keep it from spreading....

    Viking Rhine Christmas Market Run Down

    Yes, they close Christmas Eve I believe. ...we did them last year, Nuremberg to Frankfurt route. We got a great price on this cruise and thought NYE in Strasbourg, France would be fun !

    Viking Rhine Christmas Market Run Down

    We are doing this cruise starting in Basel on December 29......but would like to do Colmar on our own...the 4 of us would want to take a taxi over there ....did anyone on your trip do this? We figure the concierge could help arrange this.
  8. Hear you on this... we got canceled on two...what's weird is the one 18 months out is offering us % off another rccl cruise and this Enchantment cancel , 7 months out for us, thus less options to rebook .... is just a bit of OBC ...makes no sense.
  9. Yes, Liberty of the Seas. ......really disappointed they're not offering more than a little OBC for canceling us...we have such a good deal on Enchantment jr suite, we'll never see that on Liberty 😡
  10. Yikes. Double hit for us...several days ago, our Explorer of the seas repo out of Sydney , Australia April, 2019 got cancelled ( we've been offered 20% off future Australian cruise, 10% off any other ) and now our June 23 cruise on Enchantment ( aft jr suite for our 40th anniversary) is cancelled , with perhaps only future OBC offered ? Wow. Opening some red wine and thinking about all inclusive land resorts....

    Cheers program out of Galveston

    We were on NCL Jade last January, with the drink package...it started as soon as we ordered...still in port...we were just taxed on every "free" adult beverage til we hit open waters....showed up as 76 cents, 53 cents, etc on our shipboard account

    Gastro bar / premium bev package on equinox

    Since our Classic package only does beer up to $6, can you use it during HH if regular prices come down due to 50% off ? Placing a lot of beer in our price. Thank you.

    Anyone Recently Used Ramses Tours?

    Not sure how they will do it on a 4 night tour...but on our one day Cairo visit, we visited the museum...did the felucca ride on the Nile, right near the museum, then ate lunch in van on way to pyramids....we really enjoyed the boat ride..nice large, well shaded craft...no motor...just a boatman who looked like he walked out of the old testament!! It broke up the day, gave us a breezy, shady ride and was something different :)
