  1. Bill, here is my review of our Splendor suite 160380534_CCRatingTemplate - Splendor.xls
  2. What ship are you on? We're on the Opal and leave Amsterdam on October 9 so we'll probably pass each other along the way. We arrive in Budapest on October 23. Fingers crossed for good water levels along the way!
  3. Yes, that's the cruise - Amsterdam to Budapest (we are actually on the Rhine though beginning October 10 so that's why have that date listed. Are you on the Scenic Opal as well? This is our first ever European River Cruise so we're very excited about it. Just worried about the water levels as I read it was an issue last year.
  4. We will be on the Rhine October 10 - 23, 2019 (Scenic Cruise) is there a website that I can follow to see what the river news might be?
  5. Expolorer - 9/15/18 to 9/27/18 - London to Barcelona PHB suite #818 562 sq ft Forward Port side 1 bathroom - shower only (very large shower) - 2 sinks. room was lovely and balcony huge. Only drawback was the noise when stewards or butlers were accessing the service elevator (which was right across the hall from our door). Slamming of that door at service times (especially at sea) were a bit annoying. I'd still stay in this suite again (if not given another choice that is). Mariner - 4/15/19 - 4/26/19 - Japan cruise PHB suite # 1009 449 sq ft Forward Starboard 1 bathroom - combination tub/shower (very hard to get in and out of the tub to use the shower) Room was nice, but didn't like the bathroom configuration (very small - only one sink and had a mirror on the bathtub wall) Quiet room and not far from the elevators, but it was sectioned off so no noise levels at all from the elevator or hall. Would NOT stay in a PH on the Mariner that had a shower/tub combination - no grab rails to help get in and out. Would not recommend this bathroom on this ship.
  6. I've loved your reports, I only wish I could've read these before selecting our excursions!
  7. Thank you Mr. Rumor for all of your posts. We board the Mariner on Monday and packing now. Can't wait!
  8. Hello Mr. Rumor - My husband and I board the Mariner in Tokyo on April 15 for our 12 night cruise around Japan. Tokyo to Tokyo. I'm curious about the evening's entertainment while you are sailing in Japan's waters. I'm hoping we'll be able to see some authentic Japanese dress and entertainment while on board. Please do post what you get to see and if you enjoyed it. We are also going to Jeju so looking forward to that as well. Have a great time!
