Mark Eddowes has been great, as usual. It's been more than 17 years since we first saw him.
Missed Aititutaki, on to Moorea
Hi, I'll report at length when we get home, but just a quick note to say that after a great day in Rarotonga, we gave Aitutaki a pass because of rain and high seas. So we're on to Moorea. ...

I disagree, but I'll update you in a few weeks. We've stayed in another small hotel on Moorea, Les Tipaniers, in the September timeframe, with screens on the windows (!) and a ceiling fan, but no...

I believe it's just government employees who have reported these symptoms, on the embassy staff of the U.S. and Canada. I don't believe any tourists have been affected. It's probably those pesky...

I don't think Tom Bradley has separate lounges for lots of airlines. I remember in 2008 when we flew ATN Business, we were in some joint Asian airline lounge, like JAL or some such. Very nice, it...

Well perhaps they relocated during some construction, but as I said, we were at Tom Bradley on AF in 2014. That's the trouble with "definitive" guides--things change.

Priddscat, I guess we're on...

I'll be on AF next Tuesday. It says Terminal 'B', which is Tom Bradley. I also flew AF out of LAX in 2014 and it was definitely Tom Bradley.
Funny, that's what most people think. But with...
Funny, that's what most people think. But with most flights coming from L.A., coming from the east coast the trip can be broken up in quite manageable bites. We fly on Monday to L.A., and Tuesday...

It doesn't matter what side of the ship you're on since on almost all islands the ship is anchored, not docked. That means it swings around during the day. I guess there are specific moments in the...

Heat wave is almost over, and I believe it's already over in eastern Canada. Halifax is mid-teens celsius today, but not much rain in the forecast from Friday to Tuesday.

Around here (Ontario),...

Interesting, but none of this is relevant to the original query, right? Taking two cruises, presumably Vancouver-Seward and Seward-Vancouver is obviously not a problem for an American (or anybody).
I agree with others--no need to carry US cash and...
I agree with others--no need to carry US cash and then change it. ATM's are the way to go, and they are everywhere, including the airport. You can also use your credit cards for most purchases,...

I forgot, I booked us on the sunset catamaran trip. We've done this a couple of times on Moorea and loved it. The Bora Bora lagoon is truly magic.
Thanks, I'm sure we'll be fine. Of course it's a...
Thanks, I'm sure we'll be fine. Of course it's a cool weather cruise, so we won't be wearing *precisely* what we wear on the PG, lol. But point taken. I also understand there is a casual...

Why would you not be able to? Or why did you think it would be?

Great! Looking forward to seeing how the scope of itineraries expands! I wonder when the Pursuit's itineraries will start showing up.

Oh, didn't realize that Phil. If I were a Puerto Rican with the means to take a luxury cruise, I'd be getting out as soon as possible. The situation is dire I think.

Just vivid dreams, not really nightmares, but sometimes a bit dark. And I'm not sure if it's the drug or not. I'll find out in a couple of weeks I guess, if the Paul Gauguin is rocky.

I use Bonine (used to be Bonamine in Canada, but at least in Ontario it's no longer avaiable at all, so I buy it in the States.) The only side effects I've ever had are some rather "interesting"...

Phil, I cannot imagine that you will be disembarking in San Juan. Perhaps we're hearing more about Puerto Rico here in North America. The damage is catastrophic and the island has no power. Most...

Well as a neophyte Seabourn customers, with my first journey booked for next year, I guess I'm just not in on the joke about the jackets.

Why would you be amused by that? What would be wrong with that as long as they didn't wear them in the MDR? Perhaps these people were cold. Did you ever think of that?

On the subject of liquids, it's easy to get small travel or trial sizes of most items at the drugstore. I collect small toothpaste sizes from the dentist as well. Two quart-sized ziplocks later,...

Sorry poss, it wasn't well said. It's just that I had several Florida friends in my mind for days, but hadn't been thinking about my CC friends who live in Florida!

You should take your cruise! ...
