  1. Great question-I was wondering the same thing? On a Princess ship if that makes a difference.
  2. Thanks for your response-I appreciate the information.
  3. Does anyone know if there is a grocery store anywhere near the port in Ensenada? I love the grocery near the dock in PV-better prices to stock up on vanilla and tequila! Thanks...
  4. Wow! I was gone from my computer for a few days and there was a lot added to these pages. Just wanted to add my thanks for your blog and photos-and of course, the trivia! Hoping we're on another ship together some day in the future. --Susie
  5. Well, that didn't work! The quote showed up but not my reply. We just finished the SA/Antarctic cruise Feb. 21 and there was no mention of parkas and I didn't see any with any kind of name or logo other than the usual brand names. And it really wasn't that cold unless the wind was blowing. Flannel shirt with my parka worked well. I did have a fleece scarf that covered my neck and I could pull it up over my chin plus a hat with ear covers-those were the areas that were the coldest.
  6. Thanks everyone. Sitting in the Dallas airport waiting for our flight to Santiago. Hoping for the calm seas and beautiful blue skies.
  7. Thanks-that's the information I needed. We're on a tour that won't be back to the ship until almost midnight so won't be up for an early departure from the ship!
  8. More amazing photos!!! We board next week along with AryMay and I hope the weather for us stays clear-otherwise we may have to "borrow" some photos from your posts. My question about leaving the ship in Buenos Aires-I'm trying to decide how much time we need to clear the ship and customs in order to meet our tour guide who will show us the city and drop us at the airport. Thanks again for the effort you're putting into your posts and sharing them with all of us.
  9. Your photos are amazing. I can't believe how sharp some of the mountain peaks are! A couple of questions please. Do you recall which deck was used to exit the ship when it was docked? And about how long did it take to get through customs in Buenos Aires? What exactly did they require for leaving the ship? Thank you so much.
  10. Thanks for the information. Had hoped to meet up with all of you but we'll be a couple of day off in several of the ports.
  11. Thanks Ann-found it. I'm sad because we're going to miss meeting up at several ports by just a couple of days. And thanks Kathi-love the trivia challenges.
  12. Is there anywhere a place where I can find your itinerary and port dates? Curious as to when we'll be 2 ships passing in the night (on the Zaandam in 3 weeks) . Thanks!
  13. Our group is planning a tour the middle of February and we were quoted $18.
  14. Thanks for continuing your blog. Will be following until we board the Zaandam on the 30th. Then I'll play catch up later. Say hi to Sherita and both of you have a fantastic journey. --Susie
