  1. Fortunately, our annual policy does cover medical repatriation.
  2. If you travel a lot in a year, you might want to consider an Annual Travel Policy. My husband and I have done this for the past few years and fortunately we have never had to use it but we do have peace of mind in just knowing we have it.
  3. On Princess website: For pre-cruise purchase ONLY through Cruise Personalizer. Package is not currently offered on Sea and Sun Princess or Diamond, Emerald or Golden Princess voyages departing from and returning to Australia and New Zealand
  4. I don't believe it was the tips but the enormous amount of sanitizing that is required before the CDC allows the ship to sail.
  5. Just a further note, Edinburgh is extremely crowded during the Tattoo and they usually have the Fringe Festival during the same time. We attended the Tattoo last year and opted to spend the night in Edinburgh after the Tattoo and thus were able to enjoy another day (walking) before heading back to the ship. We opted for a private tour the day of the Tattoo and we found it helpful as they know the "ins and outs" of traffic patterns during this hectic time.
  6. Last year we used Go Scotland Tours www.goscotlandtours.com. They do tailor-made or regular small tour groups. Mike O'Rourke, Managing Director & Tourist Guide was fantastic. They also have a Facebook page under goscotlandtours. Hope this helps.
  7. Only 1 bag each (total of 2).
  8. Booked my flights via EZ Air and the price was excellent. I noticed that it says I have to pay $200 for bags. Does anyone know if I pay for my flight using my Delta AMEX card that this would waive that $200 fee as I get bags for free when using the card. I would only want to use the card for the air portion not for the rest of my cruise payment.
  9. Yes, that is what Princess told me even though I only need a one way in October as I will eventually be on a TA ending in FLL. They look at the end date (??)!
  10. You can go online and join Friends of the Tattoo for a small fee. Once you join, you can virtually select your own seats. We selected a dinner package with seating in section 9 which were great seats. I would not necessarily choose the dinner package but it's a great way to get the seats that you want before they are released to the general public.
  11. We did Koningsdam 14 day in August and we paid $429 for two of us for the Greenhouse Pass. I think you can call HA and book directly but they don't offer it online. We booked on embarkation day. quote=MarKandi;56933399]We are on a 28day sailing on the Eurodam next March and I was wondering. Can you book the Thermal Suite/Hydropool in advance? Can it be booked online? We booked it once on the Zuiderdam on a TA and I thought I might splurge for it on this sailing. On the Zuiderdam, it got discounted while under sail so I took advantage. Didnt notice very many discounted services on our past 2-3 cruises. Also I was thinking of booking the Distinctive Dining Package but we are 3 Star Mariners and get 25% discount on specialty dining so would it be more cost effective to wait until sailing to book these? I doubt we get a discount on a dining package as a guess.
  12. Use your bar code on your boarding pass prior to getting your ship card quote=philhar;56443345]Hi Nevadajen,thanks for your helpful reply. My daughter is 16 so I reckon she will resist suggested to go Teen Club,but thanks for mentioning it. I read somewhere that recently your cruise cards are outside your stateroom and until then you have a boarding card. I hope this means we can still get a drink (included in our package) before we get our cruise card!Not that I'm obsessed or anything but the packages aren't cheap!
