  1. Thanks for advice. I'll be checking back in for more information in 2023!
  2. 1. How early is it likely I can make reservations for Alaska 2024? 2. How do I find out the exact reservation release day when it's closer? 3. Am I better off booking directly with RCC or using a TA or booking myself and turning it over to a TA? Just a personal preference? It will be for 11 people in 3 cabins.
  3. When will summer 2022 be available for booking?
  4. Our cruise and land trip to Oberammergau was scheduled on Tauck for August. Their email asked us not to contact them as they are going in order of scheduled trips to contact their guests and provide rebooking or cancellation information. The Passion Play was to begin in May so those customers will be contacted before our late August sailing group. Perhaps Scenic has the same strategy.
  5. Honestly it's a bit of a relief to have it off the table completely. Every day I've been wondering if it would be a go or not. A few weeks ago it seemed a little silly to think that September travel to Europe might not happen for us but obviously things are changing quickly and we will hope to book in 2 years.
  6. We were booked on a Tauck Amsterdam to Basel cruise that included a side trip to Oberammergau. Just saw the news about the play. We will definitely cancel the cruise as well. Hope to reschedule in two years. Had hopes that with a September trip we could wait and see but now the decision has been made for us.
  7. Thanks to all for advice. Yes, I wanted a different river than the Rhine since we are doing that this year. Some of the lines mentioned I had not heard of so that will help my search. And I definitely want to be able to dock in Paris and have no allegiance to Viking or any other line so I'm open to exploring options.
  8. Which cruise lines travel in France? I was hoping for Crystal but didn't see any itineraries for France in 2021. Viking does but wondering what other cruise lines offer France? We are going from Amsterdam to Basel this summer on Tauck so we'd like to try a different country and possibly different cruise line next year.
  9. My booking window opens 9/13/20 for a 4-night cruise on Wonder. So I assume that means midnight on 9/12...first minute of 9/13 EST? What things should I book first and what things can I come back and enter later? (such as passport #s, etc.) I'll be checking in for 6 people so I don't want to waste time entering information that I could come back later in the day to enter. We are only interested in character meets (kids will be 6 and 8 )and getting the earliest boarding time possible. No character breakfast on this short cruise and we don't want tastings or Palo. We might be interested in an excursion in Cozumel on our only port day or we may book that on our own elsewhere TBD.
  10. We spent a week at Hotel Helka this past summer - lovely property - great included breakfast - convenient location.
  11. Ok thanks for info. I was doing a present booking for 2020 since that's the furthest out the calendar goes. I did not see an option for a family suite. In fact, on the initial page when I enter the number of people going, the website doesn't allow for more than 2 adults and two children, unless I missed something. Would I have to call to book for 5? I know it's way early but with the cost of the cruise and excursions I want to be prepared for how much to budget and also be familiar with ship layout so I can get the cabins we want. Assume booking opens about 18 months in advance? Is it posted on this forum?
  12. We are doing very early planning for a multi-generational cruise (or cruise tour) to Alaska in 2022. We haven't 100% decided on Princess - considering RCL as well. We will need 3 cabins. Cabin 1: 2 adults Cabin 2: 2 adults + 2 kids ages 8 and 9 Cabin 3: 2 adults + 3 kids ages 3,5 and 9 As I look at deck plans for the Princess Royal, the mini-suite says maximum is 4 guests. Is it possible to put the third child in cabin 3 on the reservation for cabin 1? But then move that child to the cabins with their parents (if we bring a toddler air mattress). We'd rather not do this. Are there any cabins at all that sleep 5? DCL has cabins that sleep 5 but their cruises are RT and we prefer one-way.
  13. We will be on a 4-night cruise in November 2020 with two sea days and one port day at Cozumel. My husband and I have been to Cozumel before and are ok staying on the ship. My son and family - kids ages 7 and 8 - may want to go to a beach - either on their own or with a Port Adventure. If they decide to stay on the ship, are characters available? Dining room open? I know we can get food somewhere. Anything else child-oriented that would make the ship even more enjoyable while others are on excursions?
  14. I booked a cruise for my husband and myself in one cabin and for my son and wife and children (ages 7 and 8 in a connecting cabin.) I am taking care of doing the online check in for both cabins (I have them both linked in my account). So it looks like I can enter all of the pertinent information during online check-in, including listing all 4 adults as people who can pick up. Then the kids can go when the parents choose? I just didn't want to have to decide 75 days in advance which days or times the kids might go to the club. Thanks.
