  1. Thanks so much! Steve sounds like he knows the ropes so I’m Sure things will get worked out. 👍
  2. oaktreerb, I applaud your patience. I would be fuming by now. I definitely think you should contact the insurance commissioner.(I wants had to do that for my mom in Florida over an issue. Void that start the wheels cranking fast! Wasn’t the same kind of insurance, but still…) from what you have said however I wouldn’t be surprised if someone else has reported them. One thing that I have read over many years on Cruise critic was never to buy cruise insurance that is sold or backed by the cruise line itself. I’m sure you’ve probably heard this but the reason is in case the line goes bankrupt, th
  3. Thank you! I was trying to avoid having to contact the moderators, thinking I could just do it quickly. Reposted in right forum.
  4. Booked a cruise for next year last week. Since there was a 10 day look back period in which I can cancel the policy, I went ahead and accepted the insurance. Once I finally received the terms on the policy (4 days later), There appeared to be a couple of things different about it than what I was told by the travel agent. Therefore I tried to reach the company via the phone numbers presented in the email I received from them to gat some clarity on the coverage. Tried about half of the options on their recording to get to a human being. I have tried every option on their recording from purchas
  5. I think there is a way to move a post from one form to another but I am not sure how to do it. I posted a question on a board that would probably garner more replies if it were posted on a different board. Please help!
  6. I got my husband a lightweight Pride Gigi folding travel scooter in February 2021. You are correct in that there is no place to attach a basket. However, we frequently stuffed bags with things in them kind of between the battery and the seat, or set a bag on the floor of the scooter, just in front of the seat. My husband is 6‘3“ tall and even though it isn’t a real large scooter, he Is easily able to use it and it is really pretty steady. Didn’t ever tip over on a turn or anything. It moves along somewhat like a rolling suitcase and is easy to fold and unfold. You’ve probably seen the video
  7. Wow, I sure didn’t recognize your screen name! Yes, I was thinking just yesterday about how long ago that was. (?) Of course I knew exactly who posted. I’m going to send you a text right now.
  8. Deedee, I’m glad to see others getting something out of this thread. That’s why this site is so great. People are always willing to help and you can get so much information from others! Hope you get your bookings renewed and end up on the cruise or cruises you most desire.
  9. In the past, before they made the more recent changes to the website, it always seems like I only had five, maybe 10 at the most, minutes to edit a post. I know when I was unable to edit yesterday and went to the help section of the site, I couldn’t find the information. When I did an online search asking about editing on CC, many comments from CC came up about the topic of editing and deleting posts. Different posters mentioned different time allowances to edit. I know I did see that someone said 20 minutes, but in my experience I’ve never had that length of time on here to edit. Perhap
  10. GUT2407, thanks for responding about how to edit. I just clicked on the three little dots when I did my last post just to see if I could have edit it had I wanted to. Sure enough, the edit option came up. Oddly enough, when I tried it a couple of times yesterday all I got was Report or Share (?). Thanks so much for your help!
  11. Sounds like the Princess’s Easy Air program works out really well. Especially if something goes wrong. So you all do make a good case for it. Royal Caribbean has something called Air2Sea, I think it is called. You basically use some interactive site they have and pick your own flights etc. I don’t know if there is any savings but somehow they work it all out for you. They do charge $15 or $20 or so to handle it. I’m not very up on it since I have always booked independently. I was more aware of The easy air program with princess because I did consider it when we did our Alaska cruise, but did
  12. By the way, I noticed that some of you have edited your posts. I used to be able to edit for a few minutes after I posted before they changed this website. I can’t seem to find out how to do it now! Found a lot of information about how they can only delete certain posts that have personal information in them. That’s not the info I have been after though. Nothing appears right after I post that says edit like it used to.???
  13. Probably Royal Caribbean because of the level cruiser we are with them. And everyone has their own taste but we tend to like their entertainment a lot and some of the bells and whistle‘s. We do like the talks that Princess can sometimes give in certain places and I think they are probably very good in that part of the world. Princess is the second most likely. But we don’t get nearly as many perks with them. In the past whenever I have checked, the cruise line air prices are not better than what I have found myself. That doesn’t mean it will hold true for this and it’s not that I wouldn’t ch
  14. Nice to read of others’ experiences and it’s helpful to know ahead of time to not count on a particular type of weather. Leaning towards about the second week of February right now. I assume school is back in session by then? Probably should bring this up in an entirely new thread, but… So far the booking window hasn’t opened yet for much of February with regard to air travel. Therefore I have run fake bookings to at least see what the plane ticket prices would be. Had to use late January of 2022, returning the first week or so of February. Prices are much higher than I anticipated
  15. Yes I assumed that was the case. But I don’t know why some fjords are listed in the visually on some itineraries and other itineraries it just says Fjordland.. wasn’t sure if it was just semantics or might involve different fjords in that area of New Zealand. ???
