  1. My apologies, I have been a member of that site so long I just made an assumption it was free. I paid nothing to join many years ago.
  2. I have to agree with Wine-o here. We have been in 1245 before and loved it. Anything close to the hump and close to the elevators on the angle going up to the lawn club is great. You can take a look at a web site called cruise deck plans dot com and join, it's free. Sometimes you can see the exact cabin you are looking to book because someone has posted pictures of the cabin. If not, there are pictures of similar cabins posted there so you can see what the balcony looks like.
  3. Much better picture than mine
  4. I must apologize about the country as stated being in Italy as that day was such a blur. It was actually in southern France and the town is in Eze. We spent the day going to several towns that day in both southern France and northern Italy. It's the old clock tower in the central part of the city and the highest point of the area. Walt Disney used to spend time there and the population dates back to the 900's I believe.
  5. Try the Hotel Barocco and talk with Christiano the Resident Manager for more information. We love it there. They usually have a package that gives you a free pick up at the airport then a transfer to the cruise port at a very reasonable price. The hotel is small but the service is 5* and located on the Plaza Barberini. Go to www.hotelbarocco.com.
  6. Cruising with a mask to me is not something I would do. I would rather stay at home and wait until time passes and there is a time to travel again without masks. If that does not happen, I will find other ways to travel other than cruising.
  7. What a wonderful board! Italy - Particularly the Amalfi Coast and Tuscany Caribbean - Aruba and the Hilton Rose Hall in Jamaica Switzerland - Interlaken & Bern with a stop at the Matterhorn Cap it off with Prince Edward Island, Nova Scotia in the fall.
  8. We live in the Dallas area and have traveled from Galveston 5-6 times and always drive. We have met people from Louisiana, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Colorado, Arkansas and Mississippi that have also driven to Galveston. Galveston has about 10 privately owned parking lots plus 3 fairly large port parking lots (owned by the city) with a good guess that parking close to the port to be around 5-7K vehicles. Then there are the hotels that have deals that allow parking at their facility if you stay with them prior the cruise or after the cruise, sometimes for a fee and sometimes included in the hotel rate. Flying into Galveston has it's own special efforts as well as the only two airports are at least an hours drive to 2 hours drive away with limited auto rental facilities. Shuttle facilities and limos are available but for a fee that can be expensive. My point is, so why not drive? We always do but, this is just one persons opinion.
  9. I just received a drink package refund today, ****finally****, it took 22 days after cancellation. Thought it would never happen.
  10. We are also on this same cruise and are very nervous about the potential outcome of the cruise. We have made final payment on the airfare but only the deposit on the cruise. I wish I had a crystal ball to look into that gave me a better feeling. We also were planning to spend a week before the cruise in Rome and some time after in Lake Como/Venice. Wish I had a better feeling.
  11. The bed by the bathroom, being your choice, is nice but in the GS, you have a complete dressing area next to the bed with drawers, mirrors, shelves and such. My wife really enjoys this little area for getting ready. Agree with Marion_Mom about the tender ports and having priority departure and "free" room service. There is another perk we like...if you want to go to breakfast, you have access to Chops as a private dining room where you can order your breakfast rather than having to go to the buffet if you want. It is a much more quiet venue.
  12. No on both, in my experience. I was not allowed on the Symphony on the Abyss.
