  1. 18 hours shy of our cruise and they cancelled! Sucks! We gambled and lost by coming down to Fort Lauderdale, but what can you do. There was nothing happening with the ships, but I get it that they were spooked by Trump's speech. Live and learn. Back home now shivering in the cold.
  2. Called OTIP today to confirm that outside Canada medical coverage is still in effect and the girl said that no changes have been made other than recommending no travel to Covid hotspots - which the Caribbean is NOT. So we still have emergency medical coverage as far as I'm concerned. We made the decision this morning that we are still going to go. I'm still not worried about the virus - just that the government will do something stupid while we're away and screw us on our return.
  3. We are on the Adventure leaving Saturday. I think we are going to take the chance and go, but still not 100% sure. We need to decide by Wednesday as we're flying out of Albany on Thursday.
  4. My wife's a teacher. I don't know if she'd get paid if we had to do quarantine because "officially" Canadians have been told not to cruise.
  5. We're scheduled to leave on the AoS this Saturday (March 14th). Like the US, the government is suggesting that we don't cruise. I'm fine with going, but the wife is unsure and another family that we know was going has decided not to. My biggest concern is being allowed back into Canada at the border without them saying that we need to go into a 14-day quarantine because we were "outside" North America. Just wondering what other Canadians are doing with cruises upcoming in the next few days for March Break.
  6. We're going on the Adventure of the Seas in a couple of weeks. Can anyone tell me if you are able to hook a media player into the cabin televisions to view your own content? If so, can you use hdmi and/or rca cables? Alternately, can you just plug in a usb stick with media content on it to play?
  7. We've used Henry at least 3 times in the past and are heading to St. Thomas again this coming March. I've tried to get in touch with him thru his website and the email that I have from past conversations, but I have yet to receive a reply. Does anyone know if he's still running tours? I know his website is active, but can't understand why he wouldn't be replying. Any info would be appreciated.
  8. I'm curious about this towel policy. What's to stop someone from stealing your towel from a chair if you leave to go get a drink or something like that? Is there any recourse if you tell them it was taken? My wife is talking about taking our own towels (a friend who's going to be on the cruise is doing this). I just think this might further encourage towel taking. I guess I'm just used to Disney and Carnival where towels are easily available on deck from a box. No worries about being charged for towels. If I could ask another question. I know that extension cords are not permitted, but my wife is wondering about those plugs that you can plug into a slot and it expands it to 2 or 3 or even 6 outlets from the 1 or 2. It's not technically an extension cord, but would they consider it as such?
  9. It says I have no cruise documents available at this time. I guess I call!
  10. Not sure what you mean by "next to last page". When I sign into my account, I can either Update check-in/SetSail Pass, or Cruise Planner. If I go to the first option, the option to view luggage tags is greyed out and says they are pending. That's all the info I can get about my account that I can find. I'm actually disappointed in the lack of information I can get about my cruise online.
  11. Thanks for all the replies to my questions - it definitely helps. Another question - We leave for the cruise in 5 days and still no luggage tags. When will I be able to print them?
  12. We are on AoS next week and had a few last-minute questions: 1) Are you allowed to bring a small kettle on board for the room? I'm sure I can get hot water somewhere, but for convenience, just wondered. 2) Is there a clock in the room that is visible at night, or do I need to bring my own? 3) From my searches, it looks like you have to check out any towels that you want to use on deck and if not returned it's $25/towel. Is this correct? Never experienced this before on a cruise. 4) Are the outside cabin walls metal and are you allowed to put something up that is magnetic in order to leave messages to other traveling companions? 5) Is tea and/or hot chocolate available as a free option? TIA
  13. Thanks for the reply. Do the tv's use an HDMI cord for regular viewing? If this is the case, then yes, I could just plug into the HDMI input and away I go. I've also researched some Samsung universal remotes. I can get one on Amazon for $6.99. Might bring one of those with me just in case.
  14. Going on our first RC cruise in March. Was just wondering if the cabin televisions are set up to allow viewing videos from either a USB stick or a media box? We went on a Carnival cruise a couple of years ago and you couldn't do this with their televisions, so I don't want to be surprised.
