  1. Yes, have heard all sorts of stories. This will be our first time on a cruise with a wheelchair and concerned. We had a walker stolen at a restaurant one night. It was a fairly new, sturdy one and the one left was an old rickety one that we couldn't use. Went out the next day and bought a new one. Have ID on the wheelchair and will put some other things on to identify it or will have it put next to us folded as you suggested. Thanks.
  2. Have read that some people have problems in the dining rooms of ships having their wheelchairs stolen. What do you do in that case?
  3. Thanks for all the responses. If we changed to early or late dining, is it that much better and can you always get a table for two?
  4. I know this topic has been discussed ad nauseam but since this is our first Princess (Coral) cruise is there a time, early or late, that's better as far as a wait? My husband's in a wheelchair and not sure about where they'd even be seating us. TIA

    Will be on our first Princess (Coral) cruise going through the Panama Canal in the Fall. Haven't seen anything about the movies they show. Is there one every evening? Different ones? Current ones? I've read that they show them the following night on the TV's in the staterooms as well. Do they provide a list of movies for the cruise or is it just in the cruise paper you receive every night? Thanks in advance.

  7. I broke my wrist four days before we were to go on a Caribbean cruise last year. Needed surgery but couldn't have it until about 10 days later. We cancelled the cruise ; ( Had a soft cast on. I'm right handed and my broken wrist was my left one. Thinking of everything I had to do before and on the cruise itself would've been daunting to me as my husband is handicapped and can't help much. But, if the doctor said you can go and you feel like you can handle it, go and have the best time!
  8. What did you pay for the Internet? I just need to check emails every day. Will be on the Panama Canal cruise in November on the Coral.
  9. Maybe they can have the captain marry them when they get back on the ship ; )
  10. Have been following your cruise since day one and always looked forward to Bob's posts. Wishing him a full and speedy recovery.
  11. Found what I was looking for.
  12. Can't seem to find anything on cruises to Alaska for someone in a wheelchair. Can anyone lead me in the direction of any posts or how to find them? TIA
  13. Looking into a cruise during Thanksgiving. Does Princess do anything special for the holiday? How's the dinner?
  14. I started reading about our upcoming cruise on Princess. Someone mentioned some upgrade(?) to assure a table for two without waiting too long in the MDR? Can any one let me know what this is about please. Thanks.
  15. No, not particularly looking to have one, LOL. Just heard others say on other ships that they've heard the chairs being dragged along early in the morning by the crew setting them up around the pool or people working out in the gym.
  16. I booked an upcoming cruise in Penthouse 3 cabin on the Sirena. Was wondering as far as noise from the deck above which are not cabins. I usually like a stateroom sandwiched in between two decks with staterooms. This one only has penthouse cabins on the floor below common areas (pool, etc.) Has anyone experienced a lot of noise or moving around very early in the morning from the deck above? I chose one all the way forward under the beauty parlor thinking it might be the quietest. Thank you in advance.
  17. Yes, my travel agent is giving us a very nice OBC too. It's the Oceania perk that is a wash in the end.
  18. From what I can see the OBC is not really that. When I made my reservation recently and clicked on the OBC which was $300/pp the end price was $300/pp higher. Doesn't make any sense to me. Last year we took it and used it to pay the tips with some left over which I had to spend on something I otherwise wouldn't have bought. This time I'm not taking it and will just pay the tips on my credit card.
  19. Loving all the posts and pictures you've been posting. Thanks to all of you. Fun to read every morning.
  20. Does browsing in an InPrivate or Incognito window help. I just did and didn't see any difference. ??
  21. I'd have to rate Celebrity's website one of the worst to try to navigate. If they want to sell cruises you'd think they'd make it easier to check cruises and go back and forth. The absolute worst and very frustrating!! Just venting!
  22. You can send out 20 items at a time. We were in a PH on the Riviera in December. The laundry items aren't pressed and everything else came back fine except my husbands shirt which was folded but certainly needed pressing. Apparently you can press them in the laundry room. We didn't need to as he just wore a shirt he'd worn before on the ship.
  23. Just got off of the Riviera this morning. Every night we saw men in shirts with collars. Short sleeve, golf shirts, long sleeved shirts and some, usually in the specialty restaurants, in jackets. Heard from many people that you'd be turned away if you aren't wearing a collar. Especially out of place in the specialty restaurants. When we were dining in Polo the other night a man came in wearing just a round neck t-shirt. Was very surprised that they seated him. I meant to ask the waiter but didn't get the chance. Still wondering.
  24. Just got off of the Riviera this morning. Were in a Penthouse 2 and loved the extra room. Lots of storage. Didn't use the storage in the main part of the cabin as the walk in closet has more than enough room for hanging items as well as drawers. There are also shelves and a rack for your shoes. The cabin itself it wonderful. If you can swing it, I'd do it. Didn't use the butler much except he bought our breakfast every morning and snacks in the afternoon. Would be fine without one though. Sent out one bag of laundry (7 items). All came back folded nicely. Wouldn't suggest sending button down shirts as my husbands shirt was folded but he couldn't wear it as it needed pressing too. Had enough shirts though so wasn't a problem for him. Loved our first Oceania cruise and will be looking forward to more.
