  1. We enjoyed the Hotel Santa Maria Novella. Walking distance to train station and major sites. Very nice hotel.
  2. When we had an overnight on the ship in Venice there were reps for the taxi/limo companies outside the terminal taking reservations for the next day when we returned to the ship on the first day. Worked well for us. We have also used Eliteautonoleggi.it for transfers when we did not have an overnight. Great service.
  3. Yes, but the initial deposit was in 2017, so past the normal pre-existing condition waiver period. We have moved the initial bookings several times. We plan to take these in Aug. 2020 and Sept. 2021.
  4. I prefer pre-existing waivers and usually buy insurance close to booking, but our next 2 cruises to Europe were booked on-board as place holders so did not buy trip insurance at that time. Looking for coverage for these cruises in 2020 and 2021. If pre-existing waiver is available I would prefer it but we don't have any medical conditions that are not stable. Does the GeoBlue policy provide better medical coverage than the comprehensive plans.
  5. Ingrid with Kultours.fr is excellent.
  6. The online system won't apply the discount. You can do a courtesy hold online to hold the cabin you want and then call to have the discount applied.
  7. 1. 12 days. Max 30 days. 2. Yes 3. No, just looking at GeoBlue for more medical coverage. May still get a comprehensive single trip policy, but most do not have much medical coverage or require an add on to increase medical/evacuation. Thanks.
  8. Typically purchase comprehensive trip insurance for each trip. Never used GeoBlue before. Looked at quotes for a trekker choice annual policy VS a single trip policy. The single trip policy was significantly more expensive. Even if just do one cruise a year would the GeoBlue annual policy be the most cost effective? Both age 65 and live in Kansas. Typically cruise to Europe once a year for up to 30 days. Thanks for your help Steve. Rick
  9. Assuming Reflection's cabins are like Silhouette, the inside cabins forward of the middle elevators on decks 9 & 10 (we've stayed in 9256 & 1092 on Silhouette) are approximately 200 sq. ft. Very nice cabins. More square than rectangle. Looks like Reflection's cabins are numbered slightly different on deck 10. Silhouette 1092 = 1104 on Reflection.
  10. Have used Rome Cabs several times. More expensive than the train, but they pick you up at the ship and drop off at hotel. There's a long thread about them a few threads below.
  11. This was a United flight a few of days after the cruise. It was the only United flight to Washington Dulles that day as the other flight had been cancelled. We were at the airport three hours ahead and arrived at the gate after scheduled take off. The plane was half empty when we boarded and the flight attendant said the flight would be full. We took off two hours late. With no other flight available I think United decided it was best to delay takeoff rather than strand so many.
  12. I wouldn't chance less than three hours at the airport ahead of flight. Our experience flying out of Barcelona this June was a disaster. Over two hours to check in and another hour to get through security. Only thing that saved us was so many people on the flight were held up checking in they delayed the flight two hours to let everyone get to the plane.
