  1. We have always felt safe with cruising. Yes people get sick on ships but we believe no more than at an airport or on a plane and even at a grocery store. You must keep washing hands using hand sanitizer etc. Dennis
  2. Soooo happy to read Princess is doing the right thing for the crew on the Diamond. Shows a lot of class on their part. Dennis
  3. Will taxi drivers accept US dollars or Euros? Also can you use a credit card. Thanks Dennis
  4. We are on Sky Princess, I believe we get off the ship on August 24th. Thanks for the info. Dennis
  5. Will taxis be waiting at the port to take us to the airport? There are 4 adults with luggage from a 11 day cruise. What would approx cost be to go to the airport, I know Princess charges $39 per person. Thanks for any info Dennis
  6. Going on Sky in the Baltic, wondering how many formal nights on 11 night cruise. Thanks Dennis
  7. How does that work with the Medallion, will it open your new stateroom door? Dennis
  8. Wondering if drink menu for Europe are different than those offered in the Caribbean. The 24 carat margarita offered in the Caribbean is the best. Dennis
  9. We loved the shows, Oceanaria was our favorite followed by Mama Mia and then Blue Planet. Normally they open doors to shows 1/2 hour before the start of the show for those with reservations. There is a standby line, those people let in about 10 minutes before show. Solarium Bistro is an alternate place for breakfast and lunch, it is a buffet style, smaller selection than Windjammer. My wife enjoyed pizza from Sorrentos. We did not eat at any specialty restaurants but there were people always in them when you would walk by. Dennis
  10. We have always booked a normal balcony, balconies on Royal larger than Princess. Looking at Europe and going on Oasis class ship there.
  11. Some quick thoughts about our cruise. Loved the design of the ship, the crew works hard to keep it looking good. With that said some of carpeting and furniture looking worn. Good thing ship going to dry dock soon. Quality of food in main dining room and windjammer was really good, selections for dinner menu were suspect a couple of nights in main dining room. Embarkation was very fast, on the ship in less than 15 minutes. The ship never felt over crowded. we used the luggage valet service at the end of the trip, great experience, would use it again. Ports of Coco Cay, Cozumel, and Costa Maya were terrific, did not like Nassau, people were rude in the straw market, very pushy, one actually cursed at us for not buying something from her. We will definitely cruise on this class of ship again. Dennis
  12. Going on the Allure and have main dining sitting. Our reservation says 5:15, last year on a different ship it said that but ended up being 5:30. Thanks for any input. Dennis
  13. Hopefully we will be getting on the Allure when you are leaving. Flying in from Chicago, weather for Friday and Saturday in Chicago is a wintry mix. Scheduled for first flight out Saturday 7:00am, so crossing our fingers. Dennis
  14. Thanks, is there a way to know where the fire zones are?
  15. Thanks for the quick responses. Sounds like we will have a very large balcony once dividers opened. Dennis
