    Spending a night away from ship while in Port

    An on point post. As a pp implied when discussing Russia, the type visa for a sea may have specific conditions that preclude or limit independent travel.

    Shortest possible cruise

    IIRC the both the Scotia Prince and the newer Bluenose did have "deluxe" cabins with toilet and sink as well "superlux" with a shower added to the accommodations.

    Why leave home day(s) earlier than embarkation?

    Seems like PP's point is that there is no guarantee that one will get on a timely flight the next day if you were booked on a flight that is cancelled.

    Cologne excursion

    Just DIY! See what my go to guy Otto has to say about and use Google maps. http://www.ottosrambles.co.uk/cologne.php I check this site before every trip we take. Home page http://www.ottosrambles.co.uk Just look up websites to see if the establishment is still in business or has moved.

    St. Petersburgh

    That was not our experience. We had one "toilet/shopping" stop during the bus tour, and then a longer shopping on your own stop later in the day after a museum stop. This latter shopping was in an area with many options and an assigned meeting place for the short walk to our bus.

    St. Petersburgh

    We toured with a private company on the visa they arranged. It was a full day with some free time built in

    We were cruising with a number of relatives. Most elected to leave late afternoon Friday (day early). We went early am Saturday from same airport on same airline. Ice and snow eventually cancelled their flight after they got to airport. Their rescheduled flight for the next day was a connection leaving even earlier than our nonstop and arriving about two hours after us. They had two trips to the airport and a bill for an unused hotel. Sometimes the best laid plans . . .

    Seasick patches

    That's just flat out wrong. You need to find a new pharmacy. And, while you're at it, report your pharmacist to the state board.

    Service dogs on board ship

    Monkeys, how ever well trained, are not recognized as service animals under the ADA. Only dogs and miniature horses are recognized.

    TROUBLE GETTING INTO BOARDS

    Yep, I've been experiencing this too, on an iPad. I also frequently need to log in again after navigating away from CC and returning.

    Noro Virus

    OK, I washed my hands and was careful not to touch anything on my way into the MDR or buffet. Then the waiter hands me a menu that has passed through many pax hands. Or, I serve myself in the buffet using the common serving utensils, again used by who knows how many. And then I enjoy breaking my roll or croissant, holding it with my hands while I butter it and increase my risk of noro. Oops. We use sanitizing wipes in the MDR and buffet after handling those items and before the bread or roll.
  13. Who said there aren't many ports in Germany? Wurzburg, Nuremberg, Rudesheim, Cochem, Boppard, Zell, Bernkastel, Speyer, Koln, Bonn, Trier, Koblenz, Bamburg, Wertheim, Passau, Regensburg are all cities/towns in Germany where we docked. Then there are Rothenburg and Heidelberg that we visited on ship's excursions.

    The cruise line can't fix stupid. As in the pax that don't wash hands, and engage in other unsanitary practices in dining rooms and buffets.
