  1. hI Lorraine. Wishing you a great voyage tomorrow. I was reading a short review of yours regarding a Beach club or other at Antigua. It was about All inclusive day pass or Pay as You go. Please let me know what place this was. email is nana travel @ sccoast dot net. Thanks so much. Bev
  2. Thank you to everyone for all of your input. I'll have to go to our local ACE Hardware to see if I can find that duct tape! I found the forms I needed and have filled them out and sent them into Princess.
  3. Thank you to everyone for your input. It's been a while since we cruised with Princess. I can't see us packing the industrial type power cord, but I do have the power adapters which I'll bring in case we can find that 220Volt power source. Yes, we do cruise a lot (right up to March 14 of 2020) but with another cruise line, so I'm used to what they have supplied Excuse my ignorance. What does HME stand for?
  4. Especially on the Enchanted, is there a plug for a CPAP under or near the bed? Is there a form to request CPAP supplies to operate our machine like Distilled Water and an extension cord if needed? I have not been successful finding a Special Needs form.
  5. Bill, I just wrote to you on your other thread. To answer your how to get to the pier question, rely on a hotel concierge to hail a taxi, or call an Uber. Last time staying in town 10/2019, it was very hard getting a taxi back to the airport from the inner city. I'm not an Uber user, but I will be this time if we end up sailing. Keep checking the Hilton Faneuil Hall (we are Hilton Honors). I have stayed at the Hyatt at the airport and it's very nice but not near anything for touring or dining.
  6. I formerly lived in New England, was a TA, and often was in at Black Falcon (Ray Flynn) Pier. Originally, I was booked at the brand new yet to be opened Hampton Inn Seaport. It appears to be very close to the terminal building. However, knowing the area, it may be a challenge to walk to the entry door from the hotel. A quick taxi or Uber ride makes more sense. We switched our reservation to the Hilton at Faneuil Hall (with 8 friends) so we would have time and place to socialize and dine the evening before sailing. Other hotels in that area are the Bostonian, Omni Plaza, Marriott Waterfront, etc.
  7. There is a link to the document you refer to on this site. This is the up to date Health Panel's latest rulings and changes for re-instating cruising. This was released to agents today and will effect all cruise lines, ports and disembarkation locations. Of course, any of it is subject to change and the height of the Covid 19 virus in the part of the world where you may be living or visiting. Page 54 speaks of excursions and plans.
  8. We had a wedding in downtown Boston early in October last year and I too was very disappointed we could not enjoy this experience. I've stayed at the Hyatt Boston airport hotel and faced no issues compared to the Hilton which has paper thin walls. I'm hoping the Hilton Faneuil Hall on Broad St. is where I would like to stay but I am not paying $500 a night. Average hotel pricing in October should be about $250. Also taxi's are not as easy to hail these days, so you may wish to install Uber or Lyft ap on your phone. I think we will have to do that before August. 2021. If you find something, let us know so we can confirm it is in a good area. They advertise many hotels as Boston, when they are up to 20 miles out of the city.
  9. Yes keep checking. I'm from the NE area but have moved South. I'm booked to sail August 29, 2021 and hotels are just starting to pop up for booking. Just found the Hyatt Boston Harbor which is close to the water taxi or commuting into the tourist areas. I always recommend the HOHO Trolley for first time visitors (skip Cheers as it is a tourist trap). Bring warm jacket as it does get cool between the tall high rise buildings. The Museum with Planetarium used to be great. A walk through the Boston Common and the Public Garden are nice but the swan boats will be put away by then. Don't miss strolling through the North End and Faneuil Hall- lots of great food. Have a great cruise.
  10. Princess just announced more Cancellations; call your TA and check to see if yours was cancelled before paying.
  11. I agree, Hyatt Place off 17th (on 10th) is usually great for the money. As we drive down, we usually need a parking package and travel to and from the port. I have used their Parking and paid for their shuttle driver. Parking for us at Park n Go, has worked. I just add in the parking fee.
  12. We like the Embassy Suites, 17th St. but lately their pricing has been high but we do travel in Prime season. We have also stayed at the Hyatt Place, right around the corner, which is fine. Love the close proximity for eating and shopping if necessary. You can even go to Publix and make a to go salad from their salad bar.
  13. We stayed at the Radisson as it had a Parking Package which included shuttle to the port. Room was clean, hotel was nice with a lovely Tropical Pool area. Only disappointment was no restaurant. For lunch we went walked right next door to this little Greek restaurant. Very clean with wonderful Mediterranean food. I am sure there are other small restaurants nearby. You do need to sign up for the shuttle which starts taking people over to the port pretty early like 10 AM, so it wouldn't be long before you would be on board and getting a bite to eat.
  14. We are in our 70's and I have diabetes and am subject to Asthma and Bronchitis. We have two cruises booked late Jan. 2021 and late August 2021. Cruise lines know your age as it is entered on your booking (for any senior discounts). I am not going to fuss about this new restriction now as who knows what the future brings. I'll cancel if need by just before final payment is due the end of October.
  15. Maris, thanks for posting all of your Colombia photos and review. We loved Dora when we took her tour many years ago. We just took a taxi downtown and it was so crowded it was unbearable. Pushing the Rollator and trying to "watch my step" was all I had to do. We were fortunate that we got to climb the fort, but it was very rough even then. Glad I got to do it then as walking is limited now. The Barracks had great shopping stores. Loved your outside and street view shots. I really could not appreciate the historic beauty of Old Downtown this visit. I liked walking through the little aviary at the port, then I caught the shuttle bus back to the ship. Your pictures with the flamingo and birds were beautiful.
  16. Love your pictures as well Les & Melody. We 4 got to enjoy it earlier in the week on a sea day. That Seafood tower looks great but I do prefer my lobster warm.

  18. Glad you arrived home safely and have decided to self quarantine. It was a pleasure to meet you once again. I layed low much of the cruise. I definitely didn't get my monies worth out of the Drink package, but that's OK. With a limited appetite, I just didn't feel like my usual Irish Coffee each afternoon. I never even got my free Gelato. So far I'm loving your photo story especially since I didn't get off the ship in many places. You went the southern route in Bonaire from the picture of the wind sails at Sorobon. We did the Northern and it was bumpy and boring. Only local focal point was the 1000 steps, which I certainly had no intention of walking. Rincon was a disappointment as just a church and local houses. With this virus, I sure hope I get to go to my GI doctors appointment. The family has had 2 calls today rescheduling appointments. Keep up the good work. Maybe our paths will cross someday on another cruise.
  19. Thanks so much. We are on the Reflection. I think my old phone had it but I forgot how to get it.
  20. Jim_Lane how do I down load the celebrity App on my new Iphone? I'm technically challenged. We leave home on the 29th.
  21. Good question but no answers. Most refreshment stops allow use of their restrooms as long as you buy a soda or something.
  22. You will probably get more response if you post this on the general Celebrity forum. Just go to categories and search for Celebrity.
  23. Maris we will both have to take a good look at these walls for the Reflection motif. We are in Blu plus the Tuscan Grille is down that way too. Bev
  24. Thanks for sharing your photo blog and especially for putting titles of each shot. You've made me more anxious to book a river cruise including a few days in Prague. What time of year did you cruise and visit Prague? I noted some folks where wearing light Winter jackets. Living in the South near the beach now, I rarely wear a heavy jacket but luckily still have those options in the closet. TIA
