  1. pacmom, just looked at your itinerary, it looks wonderful. Very anxious to get your views on this river cruise, I see it in our future 🙂. Have a great time.
  2. We’ve done many river cruises, quite a few with Viking and several others on Uniworld, Avalon, etc but I will say I’ve never seen anyone look sloppy or unkempt at meals, and I’ve never seen men with sleeveless shirts in any dining venue, maybe my bar is set too low. That said, I do have a pet peeve about hats, namely baseball caps in the dining rooms during meals, we were taught manners and this is rude in my opinion. While I’ve seen it frequently on cruises it’s the same in our city and it does drive me nut.
  3. notamermaid, small world, we used to live in Stade and visited a few months ago.
  4. The video clearly shows Uniworld River Countess.
  5. Thanks, we’re taking our first HAL cruise in a few weeks and this will come in handy. Just printed it out.
  6. Glad you had a wonderful time! We did Imperial Jewels of China with Viking in 2010, it was also our first trip with them, Was incredible and exceeded our expectations, of course we didn’t quite know what to expect. Now 9 years later we’ve done 9 Viking river cruises, 3 viking ocean cruises and have #10 river cruise booked for April 2020. Thanks for sharing.
  7. Carnival! We’re getting ready to do a HAL cruise, first time with them and I’m sort of worried we won’t enjoy it, we’re not teenagers but certainly not the go to bed after dinner bunch either. We chose it for the itinerary so hopefully we’ll be busy enough and ready to settle down early.
  8. I’m thinking this is a joke, right? I don’t like noise and would have NEVER booked a Boardwalk cabin, no matter what limited inventory was available, that said, I think the OP is ridiculous, it was over at 11, not unreasonable in my eyes or ears in this case. Seriously you’re asking for compensation....good luck on that one.
  9. Are you asking about bringing scissors on the plane or on the cruise? If on the cruise, I’ve never heard of not being able to bring something like that onboard, I’d be sure it’s packed in my checked luggage tho. Maybe I’m missing something. I hope you enjoy your cruise before having your knee surgery.
  10. And here’s another one https://www.whatsinport.com/ it also gives good port info.
  11. Cruising-along & kazu, thanks for taking the time to respond. Will wait!
  12. cuagrad90, we have an annual medical travel policy with GeoBlue and have for the past 2 years since we are Medicare age. We haven’t had to use it, thankfully, but it does bring piece of mind, like you mentioned, we have good travel coverage from our credit card but no medical. We travel lots and this is an excellent way to go.
  13. AT&T has an international plan for $10 per 24 hr period, you only pay for the days you use this. It’s unlimited phone calls, texts etc. so, if you need to make phone calls this may be a better choice. If you’re only going to text and use a small amount of data maybe your phone plan is best.
  14. This is our first cruise with HAL, in looking online in my booking I only see the Premium Internet Package for $167.99 (13 days) or the one day for $23.99, no other choices. How do you find the other packages? Thanks in advance.
  15. We too travel frequently both independently and on cruises and have an annual medical policy - we’ve not had to make a claim against it but being on Medicare, it’s comforting to know we have this if needed.
