  1. Hi CaseyKevin2000, I have just received an email from Marella saying the above show has been cancelled and giving no reason. I called them but they said they didn't deal with excursions and gave me a website to visit then call. That proved to be for resort excursions only. They are useless. I won't know until after we get back in April if the refund has gone through. Patrick
  2. Hi CaseyKevin2000, Thanks for your reply. Lets hope we enjoy it.
  3. We have booked the Havana Café Show for March 29th and was wondering if anyone had been to the show and could let me know what the timing of the excursion is because Marella give no idea whatsoever. Thanks for any help.
  4. My wife and I are going on a Back to Back on Discovery 2 in late march and was wondering if anyone had noticed if there was Soya milk available. My wife has to unfortunately stay off dairy for a few months. Thanks for any help.
  5. My wife and I are off to Cuba and Panama in late March on Discovery 2 and was wondering if anyone has experience of shore excursions in Panama and Costa Rica. The other ports on this cruise seem straight forward but these two have lots of excursions and we are not into something too adventurous. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Patrick
  6. Thanks for all your replies. I was just asking about peoples experience on this subject. I saw our GP who could only tell me what I already knew about where Yellow Fever was in the area we are cruising to. I was interested in where we would be asked for a certificate as we had been to somewhere Yellow Fever is known to be, Columbia and Panama, and Jamaica is supposed to ask for a certificate but I haven't found anyone who experienced this. I went to our local travel clinic and was advised not to have the injection because of my age and they will provide an exemption certificate before we travel. Thanks again.
  7. We are going on the Discovery 2 in March 2019 for a back to back cruise to Cuba and the Panama Canal. I have seen no mention of the need for a Yellow Fever Vaccination for this cruise from Marella and that some cruise companies make it a requirement of boarding. I know that both Columbia and Panama have the virus and that some countries require a certificate upon entry. I am 70 and my wife is 69 and have never been vaccinated against these beasties and have been told there are risks at our age. Any help or ideas would be greatly appreciated. Patrick
  8. Our booking was in 2017 so that would be why they wanted to charge for my credit card. thanks
  9. In February 2018 we went on a back to back cruise on Marella Discovery to the Caribbean. It was a great cruise but at the start, as we were registering, I was told that if I used my Credit Card I would be charged 2.5% on top so I used a Debit Card. At the time I was under the impression that had been stopped by legislation in the UK but Marella couldn't help me on that one. Has anyone come across this problem in the past year. Thanks for any replies. Patrick
  10. Thanks for that. We shall probably go for a short walk.
  11. We are on the Columbus Christmas Cruise this year and wonder if anyone knows where we berth in Amsterdam?
  12. Thanks for a prompt reply. Money and time saved. Patrick
  13. We are going to Cuba and Panama on the Discovery 2 in March 2019. I assume we have to get our own Cuban Visa. We spent two weeks in Cuba in 2005 and the tour operator provided the visa. Anyone been there lately? Thanks for any help. Patrick
  14. We are going to Cuba and Panama on the Discovery 2 in March 2019. When do the shore excursions become available? Thanks for any help.
  15. Does anybody have a copy of a typical MDR menu for the Columbus. We are on there for Christmas this year and it's our first time with CMV. Thanks for any help.
