  1. Your estimate of 8:00 – 3:30 only gives you a 7 ½ hour window. I don’t know about the train service, but the port of Civitavecchia is a 90 minute drive from Rome, so you are looking at a minimum of 3 hours just to get there and back. If you encountered any traffic other unforeseen delays you might not make it back in time. IMHO it is too much of a risk for just 4 hours in Rome, especially since anything worth seeing will have significate wait time just to get in…

  3. Just what I was looking for! Thank you 😁
  4. I’m interested in anyone’s experience with lunch at Sushi on 5 on embarkation day. Is it very busy? Can anyone post a menu? TIA 😁
  5. Thank you for sharing your experience. I plan to purchase an internet package for our October Equinox sailing, and am debating which of the two services would be best. Would you mind sharing which you had, the surf package or the unlimitted package? TIA
  6. Reef-safe sunscreens are becoming more prevalent on many islands of the Caribbean. Last October, our snorkeling excursion in Bonaire strongly recommended reef-safe sunscreen. Coral reefs are increasing becoming endangered, and some ingredients in sunscreens are actually toxic to the organisms. Reef-safe sunscreen is just as effective but doesn’t contains the toxic ingredients. I don’t know about any laws requiring it, but it’s not difficult to find. I recently bought some at Costco for this summer’s travels, and you can easily find it on Amazon, too. I consider it a truly minimum effort to help conserve these beautiful natural environments that do so much to enhance our ocean-going experience – JMHO
  7. Glad to know that Surf Internet met your needs; I too am reluctant to pay so much for the unlimited wifi. You mention that speed was OK, but I was wondering if you had any experience / success with wifi calling... TIA
  8. I am not having issues logging in. My issue is accessing the discussion boards. I can view the CC website and login, but once I click on "BOARDS" I immediately get the error message. This happens whether I log in first from the main screen or not, but only from my iphone or ipad, not from my desktop. And to make it even more frustrating, it does not happen every time I try to access the boards on my phone, only sporadically... I guess my issue is more unique than I thought. Or perhaps I am simply on the wrong thread, but I haven't found anything similar to what I am experiencing. Can anyone point me in the right direction to contact support directly? TIA
  9. To clarify, my issue is not with logging in. I receive the error message by simply trying to acces the CC website. It does not happen all the time, but it never happens on my desktop computer - only when I try to visit the website on my iphone or ipad. Perhaps this is the wrong thread for this, but I did not find any other related threads...
  10. I have read the threads but i’m not finding anything related to the problem I’m having. I cannot even view the website from my iPhone or iPad. The interesting thing about my problem is that it happens sporadically. I am able to post right now from my phone, but other times I get an error message “403 ERROR the request could not be satisfied” - I’m attaching a screenshot photo. I’ve cleared all history, I’ve tried different browsers...what am I doing wrong?
  11. Same space exists on Equinox. Our last cruise we used that space with magnetic hooks I brought from home to hang hats, bags, etc. Works great because it is out-of-the-way enough that you don't knock anything off as you walk by. Needless to say, we never considered it wasted space 😄
  12. Any idea how much for a taxi from Crown Bay to Lindquist? Travel time? TIA 😃
  13. Sorry to dig up an old post, but can anyone share the best way to get to Lindquist from Crown Bay?
  14. It depends on when you sail – the further out your sailing, the fewer details there will be. But you can look at the current sailing to see what is happening now, which would be the equivalent of dailies posted by someone currently onboard. For instance, the 06/22/19 sailing is currently on route to San Juan for a 3:30 PM arrival. If you swipe up you will see the daily planner with recommended activities, just tap on the filter to show all. If you tap on the fork & knife icon you will find the various dining options, click through to see the menus, etc. This is the apple version; I don’t know how different the android version would be… HTH 😊
