PICTURES (Attach pictures in your review) DATE OF CRUISE AND "REVOLUTION" COMMENTS 25 OCT 2019 This cabin only received a partial "revolution," with new bedding and curtains, but the couch was worn with a small tear in the upholstery and the carpet was not replaced. The matress and pillows seemed newer and were very comfortable.
  3. That price sounds like quite a jump from what I paid on Equinox in October 2018. It really sounds like it should be for two people, although in my cruise planner it clearly states $120 for one person. Last year I made a tumbler for $79 total - class and tumbler included. As posted earlier, the price will depend on what you choose to create, and the level of hands-on involvement will also also depend on the complexity of the piece. Although I truly enjoyed my experience and found it to be a great souvenir of our cruise, I don’t think I would have done it for $120. I do recommend going up as soon as they open (the hours will be posted) to ensure that you get the day/time that works best for you.
  4. 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…

  6. Just what I was looking for! Thank you 😁
  7. 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 😁
  8. 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
  9. 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
  10. 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
  11. 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
  12. 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...
  13. 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?
  14. 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 😄
