  1. I did the Chefs Table as a solo traveler; didn't have a bit of a problem, other than the $95 price tag:D. Seriously though, as a once in a while indulgence, the cost isn't outlandish.
  2. You can bring on a simple power strip, one without a surge protector built in.
  3. I did it a couple cruises ago and absolutely loved it. On my next cruise, next July, I'm going to put my name in the pot and hopefully I'll get chosen. The cost was $95, but I think it's well worth it, for the experience.
  4. Tom, I really don't know; that's something I hadn't even thought about.
  5. Yep, they aren't available; bring your own.
  6. Looks like I'll be going back to Alaska next summer. Plus!, the upgrade fairy struck!!! I was upgraded from an oceanview to a balcony!
  7. As a single, senior, male cruiser, as long as my bed is made and the cabin is tidied in the morning I'm satisfied. I can turn down my own bed at night; after all, I do that to my own bed at home.😊 During my recent stay in the hospital and subsequent stay in a convalescent hospital, I told the nurses/care givers that I was "very low maintenance", and I showed that by rarely made any requests of the staff. They had plenty of work to do as it was and demands by other patients.
  8. Well, as I don't (any longer) do drugs and I rarely have a drink, or two, I guess I'm safe from accdently falling off the ship��. Actually I'm all in favor of taking personal responsibility in my life - in general, not just on a ship out in the middle of a great big, and very deep, ocean!
  9. As been said, there is no reason for you to worry about bringing water onboard - even if you could, based upon the cruise line. Ship's water is just as good as anything you could buy and bring with you. As another diabetic, I never worry about drinking ship's water; it's perfectly fine😄.
  10. From my experience, the Chef's Dinner is designed for carnivores!
  11. I've had several iterations of iPads, my present one is the Air 2. My original reader was the Sony Reader, but that was all it was good for. At least with the iPad I can play games and can get on the internet - not on a cruise of course, but in North America, at least.
  12. Even as a male, there's no way in hell I'd share a cabin with a stranger! That's like going on a blind date that lasts a week, or 10 days if that's the length of your cruise. Beyond that, welcome to cruise critic and the, I think, wonderful 😀 world of cruising
  13. In that case, my preference would be the inside passage; but that's just me.
  14. My recommendation is that you do it immediately upon boarding.
