  1. I have a return flight to Heathrow for my end of May cruise out of Southampton. My cruise is the Anthem northern Europe . Air Canada has cancelled my original departure time and now I see they have cancelled my original return flight time. No one from the airline contacted me of these changes. I checked their policy and they are offering a flight credit, no refund. Has anyone been successful in getting a refund from Air Canada?
  2. I cancelled my Europe cruise on the Anthem sailing at the end of May 2020. I also cancelled my beverage package and my shore excursion. I received a full refund to my credit card today for the bev. package and excursion. It has only been 4 business days. I think that is fabulous, considering the agent I spoke with told me it would take 30 days. Thanks Royal
  3. I am flying to Heathrow for my first European cruise. My first thought was staying overnight at the Hilton Garden Inn Terminal 2 (where my flight lands). I understand that you can walk from T2 to the hotel via a parking lot. This sounds convenient to me. I will be travelling solo and I am questioning the safety of this walk. If anyone has done this walk to the hotel, could you let me know your thoughts about lighting and safety and distance to the hotel. In the morning, I will need to walk back to the airport in the morning to get the RCI bus to Southampton pier. Thank you.
  4. I am flying to Heathrow for my first European cruise. My first thought was staying overnight at the Hilton Garden Inn Terminal 2 (where my flight lands). I understand that you can walk from T2 to the hotel via an underground parking lot. This sounds convenient to me. I will be travelling solo and I am questioning the safety of this walk. If anyone has done this walk to the hotel, could you let me know your thoughts about lighting and safety and distance to the hotel. In the morning, I will need to walk back to the airport in the morning to get the RCI bus to Southampton pier. Thank you.
  5. Can anyone tell me how safe it is to walk to the Hilton Garden Inn from Arrival at Terminal 2? I read that you have to walk through a parking lot to get there. Is the walkway well lit? Is there signage in the airport telling you how to find this walkway? Is the walkway through the parking garage on the same level as Arrivals or do you need to take an elevator down? I ask these questions because I will be travelling to the hotel by myself and I want to be safe. Your information is greatly appreciated. Thanks very much
  6. I would like to ask about the Diamond member internet benefit. I remember having one free day of internet use last year and I can't seem to see that information under the Diamond Benefits on the Crown and Anchor benefit page. Can anyone confirm (or deny) that this is still a benefit. I am sailing on Allure in a few days. Thanks.
  7. I was thinking that I might be too tired after flying all night and arriving at 8:30 London time to wait for the bus, get to the pier, wait to board and then I would be asleep!! I was thinking of a hotel to overnight in and get back to the airport to pick up the bus. How does this sound to you?
  8. This will be my first cruise around Europe (on Anthem of the Seas) in May. This will also be my first flight to Heathrow airport. I am thinking about booking the RCI bus to pick me up at the airport and take me to the ship in Southampton. I am kind of nervous about the whole thing because of the huge size of Heathrow,. My flight will arrive at Terminal 2 around 8:30 am. Could anyone tell me your experience with the RCI bus pick up. Was the bus easy to find? How long is the bus ride? What time did the bus leave Heathrow to the pier? Thank you for any assistance you can give me.
  9. I forgot to tell you that I will be flying via Air Canada into Terminal 2. Any ideas about the hotels near or at T2? Thanks
  10. I will be flying into Southampton for my European cruise in May, 2020. I have never been to Europe before and was looking for suggestions as to a hotel close to Heathrow airport for one day/night prior to the cruise. I don't want to take a subway or a bus to get there because I will have to drag my luggage with me. I was going to book the cruise shuttle bus to take me to the pier on cruise day. Thanks for your help.
  11. I was thinking of doing this excursion on my upcoming Allure sailing in January. Just wondering what your thoughts are about this. It looks like fun to me.
  12. I stayed here one day/night prior to my Alaska cruise in September. The front desk staff was very friendly and helpful. The concierge booked my Hop On Hop Off tickets and arranged for a cab to the pier the next day. There is a restaurant/bar in the hotel and it was wonderful. The hotel is located within minutes of the waterfront, Canada Place and some great eating places.I had a room on a high floor and it had a water view and a downtown view. I would highly recommend staying at this hotel next year when the Alaska cruises resume.
  13. I would like to ride the HOHO trolly or bus in Vancouver the day prior to my Alaska cruise in September. Have you any information good or bad about your experience with this? Thanks very much.
  14. I am one of you who had my Independence cruise cancelled. I re booked an Anthem cruise to northern Europe. The non refundable deposit was taken from my credit card immediately.for this new cruise. I am still waiting for the credit to my card for the cancelled cruise. The letter from RCI stated that customers will start seeing these refunds by May 17 or sooner. I am curious as to how many of you fellow cancelled Indy cruisers have received their deposit back. I have spoken with my travel agent and she says it takes longer to get a refund. I am aware of that, but how long should I wait and has RCI forgotten about me?
  15. I have reserved this hotel for my Sept Alaska cruise, one night pre cruise. Have any of you stayed here and can you tell me your thoughts about this hotel. This is my first time in Vancouver. Thanks
