  1. Thanks Redtravel. I am hoping by the time we sail (Aug '21), we will be able to change cabins. We are on the Waitlist, with fingers crossed. All levels of the category we like are waitlisted now. When I booked I had a choice of four adjoinings or one obstructed view. We had an adjoining cabin on a Princess cruise once, and I swore never again. The steward tried to block the noise through the door, but it didn't work at all. Thanks for your thoughts. Thanks for your thoughts.
  2. Thank you for your replies. The adjoining cabin was the only one left in the category we wanted. I am on the waitlist to change to another cabin. Hopefully, one will become available, if we actually sail in August '21. We experienced an adjoining cabin once, and don't want to do it again.
  3. Has anyone stayed in an adjoining cabin on Sirena? We took the last cabin (8022), but asked to be waitlisted. All other categories we ae interested in are waitlisted. We had a bad experience in an adjoining cabin on a Princess ship. We could clearly hear the occupants' conversations and what they were watching on TV. I would like to know how much noise comes through the door. Thank you!!
  4. Our Copenhagen to London cruise for August 2020 had all categories, but one, available yesterday. Today, they are all waitlisted. I am hoping this means the cruise is about to be cancelled and we will be able to receive a refund instead of FCC's. Waiting for word from our TA.
  5. Our August 22, 2020 cruise's final payment was due yesterday. Not a Grand Voyage. It's a 22-day cruise. We asked our TA to contact O and ask if it would be possible to push back the date. We were hoping for maybe a month. Their answer was a plain and simple NO. Not sure if a month will make any difference right now. We decided not tie up a large amount of money at this uncertain time, so we cancelled. If things get better, we might reschedule.
  6. Thanks everyone for your input. I appreciate your thoughts and recommendations.
  7. Has anyone tried these? If you did, I would like to know how it worked and if you think it is worth the price. I currently use the patch along with the cloth wristbands, and add Bonine or Dramamine when needed. Thanks!!
  8. I am looking for suggestions on cruises in the Galapagos Islands. We are not interested in land trips to Machu Picchu. I am not sure where to start in my research. Should I look at the bigger cruise lines, or try to find smaller companies. Any suggestions on where to look for smaller cruises? Thank you for your help.
  9. Hi. I am a brand newbie on Disney with a few questions. On Pirate Night, do people dress as pirates? Should I buy some pirate dress ups for my grandkids? I am assuming that the dress code is very casual. What do adults wear to the dining room during dinner seatings. Thank you for your help.
  10. Has anyone done this excursion from the port of Flam, Norway? Oceania is offering it, but without a lot of explanation. I would appreciate any thoughts about this tour. Thanks!!
  11. Thank you, everyone, for your responses. No one really answered my question though. I really don't feel like I have to explain myself, but I will anyway. We consider excursions to be part of the total cruise price. I like to keep my OBC's because it feels like "free" money. That way, I can go to the salon and spa, play bingo, etc., and not feel like I am wasting "real" money. Simple as that! Excursions=real money. Bingo=free money.
  12. When I booked excursions online for our last cruise, they were automatically (or at least I think they were) deducted from our OBCs. I like to save our credits for onboard. Did I miss something? How do I book excursions online and pay for them with a credit cards now that we can use OBCs? Thank you for helping this techno dummy!
  13. Does AMACello have a 24 hour coffee/tea station for guests to use?
  14. Thanks everyone for the great ideas and advice. I really appreciate all of your help!!
  15. I hope that I am in the right place. We will be in Vienna for three days before our Christmas Market cruise begins. Any suggestions on what to do those days? Thank you!
  16. Does the Island Princess have a walking track or a space that can be used to walk outside?
  17. Thank you, everyone, for your comments.
  18. Does Princess have the above activity on sea days? Another line we sail on does, and they provide cute little kits. I was looking on Ebay and noticed a kit with "Princess Cruises" in the pattern.
  19. It has never been a problem with us. All you have to do is let them know that you are leaving early.
  20. Probably. They have a new technique--one person holds the two lounges while the other goes to eat, then they switch.
  21. I wouldn't put it past some of those people. Someone, at the beginning of the ATW, took a bunch of needlepoint kits and was selling them on her Ebay site. She must have told someone and they notified Oceania. People were so crazed about grabbing as many kits as they could, the Social Hostess had to start having people sign up and come up to the bar in Horizons a few at a time to choose a kit. Ray Carr even mentioned, in his daily announcements, that the ladies needed to behave themselves at needlepoint. I went one day and was number four in line, but when I signed my name, I was number 15
  22. Leslie has always been our favorite. We saw his rendition of "If I Was a Rich Man" over ten years ago. He did it on a segment of the ATW in April. So much fun to see him do it again. Trivia can be scary. I have seen a few sessions turn into screaming matches. The worst thing I witnessed was on the above mentioned cruise. A man would come to the time period when the daily Mensa answers where being given out. He would always have four copies of the questions, without answers. He would quickly fill in the answers as Leslie read them off. He would then go up to get his O points for him a
  23. The port is Miami. The port is in between our hotel and the airport.
