  1. So for me, it's purely a comfort issue. It's hard to squeeze between tables placed that closely together. I understand why it won't happen - but to be honest, some of the extra distance between tables is something I had hoped might stay after things return to normal.
  2. I'm having a similar issue. We changed our cruise. The app didn't update with the new information, so I removed the cruise but when I try to add it back, now the App doesn't recognize the reservation number as valid...
  3. I'm jealous! I'd love to do the Hawaii cruise, but it's hard for me to take off that much time from work.
  4. We love the smaller ships. The crew feels like they have a bit more time to get to know the passengers (although that may also be caused by the longer sailings), they're easy to move around on and (to me) have more interesting itineraries. I believe DCL also holds some reservations out for on-board bookings at Palo, so even if you can't find them on line, you should be able to get in. Also, check back regularly to see if something opened up. It does happen. @gometros - Kungaloosh!!!
  5. We were in Disney two weeks ago when it was over 90 almost every day. I'd arrive at temperature checks already feeling hot and sweaty, but never ran into an issue with a high temperature, even mid-afternoon. They also had 'cooling tents' for people who did have a high temp - they could go sit in the cool, drink some water and try again before being denied entry. I would assume that the cruise ships would do something similar because of just the situation you described.
  6. Yes. I would much rather resume travelling, even if it means wearing a mask.
  7. You may be able to use the free Disney transfer back to the airport (just give them a flight number that leaves about 3 hours after the time you want to leave your hotel) and then purchase Royal transfers from the airport to the port. That should be a bus, similar to Disney's transfers. With the amount of traffic in the port Canaveral area, I wouldn't be comfortable walking just me from port to the other (even if Disney did let you buy a transfer when you're not cruising with them).
  8. I love my Travelon bag. (Although I must admit, while all the security features are wonderful, I think the best feature is that I can carry two 20 oz bottles in the pockets on the ends! ) https://www.ebags.com/product/travelon/ant-theft-classic-cross-body-bucket-bag/261878?productid=10607817
  9. We loved Misty Fjords!! Also, for Juneau, if the clouds are low, you probably won't want to do the Mt Roberts tram - you won't be able to see anything. If you can find a Mendenhall Glacier tour that doesn't include it, you can always walk up and do the tram very easily. It's right there at port.
  10. *my 3-in-1 coat (has a detachable inside layer and hood) *new travel space bags for packing all my cold weather gear together so that it takes up less space (just be aware that it will add weight to your checked back for flying) *a multi-usb charging port *a usb backup for the pictures on my phone
  11. Congrats on the deal!!! I added it to my room, too (Emerald, Sept '21). We normally don't drink package because we don't drink enough for the value - but the cost was low enough that we felt like while we may not quite drink the cost value, being able to pay it out and not having to find soda to lug on board made the difference worth while.
  12. As I get closer for time to start planning for my cruise next fall, I know I'll be here a lot! Thank you all (in advance) for your help!!
  13. Last Sunday we joined the line between 6:30 and 6:45 and it was already around the Main Dining room. I was distracted by the fight among passengers when we started moving (seriously - they called security over it), so I didn't notice what time we actually began leaving the ship. However, we were at the airport to check bags around 8.
  14. When we were in Boston last year on Anthem, the line for the HOHO near the port was 3-4 busses worth of people long. We had thought about booking, but after seeing the line, decided to Uber into town and walk the Freedom Trail (which was easy and really cool!) It may have been the time of day (we got off fairly quickly after the gangway opened), but just something to be aware of.
