  1. Thanks! I was beginning to worry that "the main dining room" style of cruising was no longer a thing.
  2. She was our exchange student in 2017-18. This trip is a vacation completely separate from that. But...getting "stuck" somewhere is exactly my worry!
  3. Sorry for basic questions, but I just can't seem to dig this out. This is a company trip, so I have not personally spoken to an RC agent. I see all these packages for meal plans. Is there a main dining room open for all meals that is part of our fare? And/or a buffet? Is it really needed to eat in a specialty restaurant? And on CoCo Can....are there just chairs on the beach to use or do you have to purchase this special day thing? And I assume there is lunch on the island? We have enjoyed cruising Carnival, and are l9king forward to experiencing a different line/ship....just trying to figure out details! Thanks.... Winterblue
  4. Thank you all. We do have insurance info and medical power of attorney. Swiss are allowed entry without a visa for a visit. Has anyone been in this situation (foriegn minor traveling with us) and had a problem? We will have a notorized statement from both parents saying she is allowed to travel on this ship on this date with us. I just have that little panic that we get to the port and someone says "Oh, you need form 3$#7Ac4 completed. Sorry." πŸ₯ΊπŸ™„. Hopefully I am overly worried for no reason.
  5. Hey Helpful Cruise Critics! Does anyone have experience with this situation: We are cruising this summer and taking our former foreign exchange student who is from Switzerland. We are having some language and distance issues that are confusing us all about what RC needs. RC needs a notarized statement that she has permission to travel with us--we think we all understand that. She will also have her passport. Anything else? Thanks! Winterblue
  6. These are all great suggestions, and I thank you all for your help! I added some before we headed out. We just got off the Triumph, and the rooms have all been redone. We had an interior. The bathroom counter was much larger, with shelves on the sides. Lots of storage there. But the redesign of the closet and desk space left us with no drawers or shelves. There is a (VERY) small fridge where drawers used to be, and only hanging space in the closets. One thing I will add to my list is a door decoration! There were many cute ones, and they helped us find our room! Happy Cruising, all!
  7. Thanks for all the responses. Plenty to think about what to pack...and what NOT to pack! I try to find the balance between traveling light, but having some helpful things. It is interesting to see how we all travel differently...and yet can enjoy all being on the ship together! Happy Sailing... WinterBlue
  8. Great thoughts! I checked the power strip. Magnets and suction cups are a good idea. Bury Me at Sea, this is NOT like any other vacation for me, lol! Normally I would be packing a box of kitchen staples, spices, knives, etc. so I would be prepared to cook at the "vacation house." This time I get to let someone else do the cooking (and cleaning!) We do take a big carry on with swim suits and wine along with the needed documents.
  9. Hello Cruisers! We are setting sail soon, and I would love to hear your advanced packing tips. What do you take from home that makes life on board easier? I have the power strip packed, as well as a water bottle and coffee cup. Looking forward to hearing your suggestions.... Winterblue
