  1. LOL... She Who Must Be Obeyed is what my DH uses (or if someone really really needs my attention he'll say, I'm sorry buy I'll have to set the The Dog of War on you. He is very polite (English.) He tries to settle things in a gentlemanly fashion. It doesn't always work. That's where I come in. It works for us. I think the Trophy Wife reference is adorable. I would not be offended. It just would not work for us LOL.
  2. We have no medical coverage from our health insurance co. once we leave the US. When I looked into Celerity's coverage it looked thin compared to other insurance. Each trip I call call insure my trip and get the best "any reason to cancel" insurance. They have been fantastic. They explained everything to me in non technical insurance terms. It was important to me since I have pre-exisitng conditions and needed to make sure everything was covered. My travel agent is happy for me to get my own.
  3. I am also so disappointed in the lack of activity in the our roll call. We are on the June 12th 2022, Summit and it just about trading water. By now, in previous sailings, it would be really building up steam. We've met so many nice people, starting with the roll call / activities. Oh well. Hopefully things will perk up.
  4. Seany527 Thanks for taking us along on your trip to St. Maarten and on your cruise. WOW. Fabulous ! SXM is my favorite place ( I met my husband there : ) ) and you are on my favorite cruise line. What could be better ! Have a wonderful time.
  5. Same ! Booking through my fantastic travel agent has not failed me.
  6. I'm fine with it. I have to take the internet, since I need it to keep our business going while we cruise. We always take the booze package and I just upgrade hubby's to premium. I just use my for water and Al Balcio.
  7. I'm so glad you seem to be on the mend. I am big proponent of trip insurance. I buy "any reason to cancel" insurance directly after booking our cruises. It covers any pre-exisiting conditions and look back periods. No Drs. notes etc if we find we have to cancel. No muss no fuss. I did get a call this afternoon from my friend who did manage to buy insurance to cover her trip. I was worried I had upset her, but she was grateful. Be well....
  8. Exactly, I always packs meds for a few extra days, but to think of even packing for an extra week is no usually feasible.
  9. I wish you a speedy recovery and I am so glad you had to good sense to travel with trip insurance. I had a conversation with my friend this morning who is cruising (soon.) They did not buy trip insurance. When I asked her why, she said they did not much for the cruise, so it wasn't worth it. I asked about medical / evacuation and almost fainted when she said, well Medicare will pay. I said nope and she said I have a supplement. I told her to check with her supplemental insurance and her credit card and then call insuremytrip. I know her husband takes care of everything financial and I upset
  10. We are not cruising until the end of May and taking a short (five day) cruise from Cape Liberty to Bermuda and I'm starting to get (a little worried.) I am immunocompromised, but that is not the biggest concern (believe it or not.) If somehow the ship were to get quarantined, for 14 days, we are sunk. I know our dog sitter has back to back bookings and we have our own business to attend to. That is why we take shorter cruises. Not to mention I wonder what happened to your medical needs after the time your trip insurance runs out, if you to get sick, out of the US. I know my regular insurance
  11. I'm happy it went down but still disappointed. I'm thinking this almost a quarter of what the cost of cruise is (with the 18% gratuity) and that is with only one booze package.
  12. Major disappointment here in their "sale." Our Deluxe Bev Pkg has been $59 for awhile. The cyber Monday sale price is $51. I do have to admit the regular bev pkg went down to $19, which is a fair amount less than when I looked the other day (I can't drink alcohol, so I have to take this package or hubby can't have the alcohol pkg himself.) I'll keep looking and hope for a surprise sale... who knows.
  13. We took the Key Program for our May 2020 sailing (at hubby's insistence.) I do take the internet to keep our online business going while on vacation. The price was $31.99. We get no alerts for sales from Royal (unlike Celerity ) so I diligently checked my planner just about every day for a price reduction. Well it paid off... the other day it showed up as $24.99. A call to Royal cancelled the Key and rebooked at $24.99. $70 saving.. Yah for me.
  14. Once I knew what they were I didn't bother trying them. I made the mistake of trying kidneys and some other organ the Brits eat. I was assured since I liked liver I'd like it.. Ahh... NO NO and NO (thank you.)
