  1. It looks like an easy walk to the old city with lots to see when I get there. Thank you for the info.
  2. Instead of an excursion I may walk around the area. Where does the ship tie up and what has anyone found to be within walking distance. We are in port from 1:30PM to 10:30 PM so I'm looking for daytime and nighttime things to do and see without going to a beach. Thanks Eric
  3. I like your idea of renting a car to go exploring. I have done this in several other places and have always had a great time. I have also hit the Trip Advisor forum with the same question. Thank you for reminding me of that
  4. I don't know exactly what the issue is but the email RCL sent said that the New Port facilities would not be ready in time to accept a ship the size of Oasis so they had to cancel our stop in Portland and give us an extra day in St John. I've never seen facilities in Portland so I have nothing else to go by.. it's really too bad because I was looking forward to being in Maine. Have not been there in at least 30 years
  5. Oasis had to cancel Portland ME because the new pier won't be ready so we will be staying 2 days with an overnight in St. John. I'm looking for suggestions on what to enjoy with all of that time to spend there. Also, since we are missing a chance for a Maine lobster experience can I assume that in St. John and Halifax there will be wonderful lobsters? Last time I checked I didn't see any fences in the water between Maine and Canada. Where are the good spots?
  6. I didn't realize that my simple question about the content of fry oil would start the lard wars 🤣
  7. The OP here. Just to set the record straight I said absolutely nothing about Guy's needing to cater to vegetarians. All I did was ask if there's any animal fat in the fry oil. Catering to vegetarians is something that just seemed to evolve in the course of the thread.
  8. This is the answer to my question and I certainly appreciate it. I will now now out and let the war rage on 😜
  9. You should be fine as long as you stay away from the Donkey Sauce 😁
  10. Believe me, attempts have been made but she has a will of iron 🤣
  11. Oh we will be hitting all the other options too but nice to have an additional venue to experience. Remember, variety is the spice of life!😎
  12. Exactly. I've had Guy's fries and they are great so I know she would love them along with her veggie burger as long as there's no lard mixed in the oil. Just gives her an additional choice in food to make her cruise enjoyable. It also allows her to participate when the group makes a Guy's visit rather than having to go off to the buffet or elsewhere by herself.
  13. Our group includes a vegetarian who likes to strictly follow proper practices. She loves french fries but stays away from any that are cooked in oil containing animal fat. Does anyone here know the fry oil content at Guy's?
  14. What a wealth of information. Beautiful!! Thank you very much. Now I've got lots more fun research to do (one of the many enjoyments of cruising) Eric
  15. We have FTTF for 2 cabins on Horizon in December and as part of the check-in process I was asked to select a check-in time. The earliest choice was 12:30. I thought that with FTTF we could board as soon as the ship is open. Am I misunderstanding something? Having to wait until 12:30 to begin the check-in process at the pier would negate any FTTF advantage.
