  1. Read this article: https://www.buenostours.com/getting-the-best-exchange-rate-for-your-dollars-in-buenos-aires They recommend bringing bigger bills...….and be careful as to their wear and tear.
  2. 9292 is my favorite on these ships!! Love the extra long balcony. Some folks don't like it because it lets less light into the room but my feeling is why sit in the room when I have a balcony!!
  3. Thanks to all for the answers. Will have to try to find something before we board. Hopefully Jorge Newberry airport has a duty free.
  4. We are doing the Eclipse that overnights in Buenos Aires. We will have no means to get wine before we board the first day as we are coming from the airport. Can I bring on my two bottles on the next day?
  5. I am doing an overnight. Will be coming and going on two different days at the same port of embarkation.
  6. So I have a question?? We are boarding the ship, overnighting and not leaving until the next day. What's stopping me from bringing two bottles on when we board and an additional two bottles the next day when we embark? Security won't know the difference or are you only allowed to bring it on the first day?
  7. Thanks for your answers so far. Glad to hear they stay open late. When do they start serving?? Can I get a mimosa with breakfast?? Does it include the high end single malts on their drinks menu? The boys in the group NEED to know. Haha!
  8. Booked on a Viking cruise down the Danube in May going with a group of friends. I know that house wine and beer are available during lunch and dinner and that you can bring on any spirits that you purchase on land for consumption on board unlike main line ocean cruise lines. Looking at the Silver Spirits Beverage Package for $150 per person. They provide a sample bar menu. Looks pretty darn good especially for our single-malt scotch loving guys that will be with us. For those of you who have purchased this package - was it worth it? Really unlimited? It states during operating hours.....what were they? Or did the bar have limited hours? Thanks in advance for your comments!!
  9. Aha! I am a lowly Pearl because I don't really gamble....... I will just play some slots and maybe a couple of hands of blackjack at the minimum level if I am bored a few nights. Atlantic City is an hour away so I am not chomping at the bit to gamble on a cruise ship. Thanks for the info!!
  10. We just printed out our Cruise Boarding Pass (doing my happy doc dance!!). We are listed as Elite - Pearl. We know Elite - been a while - but what is Pearl???? Just curious......
  11. We stayed several nights at the Holiday Inn in the Rocks right across from the Sydney cruise port. Awesome location, awesome hotel. Went to William Blue on George Street. It is a culinary school restaurant run by students much like the CIA here in the US. Reservations ARE A MUST!!! Can do it on line. Very reasonably priced. Wonderful atmosphere. Great food. Also a number of restaurants in Barangaroo offering wharf side seafood dining. Some are very touristy but offer great views. We ate at Nicks Seafood and I had my first bug.
  12. This is one of the Putu's that I know. He was up in the Sky Lounge during Elite Happy Hour when we were on the Reflection in Feb 2018. He was a great bartender.
  13. We sailed with Captain Skylogiennes and Hotel Director Arjan Scheepers back in February 2018 on the Reflection. Did a B2B2B in an lowly outside cabin and we are just Elite. Arjan was very gracious and outgoing. We were very surprised to be invited to a huge luncheon with the captain and staff including suite folks and Zenith members. It was his doing. That was an amazing cruise.
  14. I really miss Portofino's too. Never got to Jamie's. Checked it out on the Anthem and decided it looked more like a cafeteria than a fine dining restaurant and went to Wonderland instead. SO MUCH BETTER!!! As far as having a hand in preparing your own food - Celebrity does that in their Lawn Club Grill. You have the opportunity to make your own pizzas at sea!! Great restaurant. I actually enjoy watching Jamie on TV. His recipes are simple yet tasty.
  15. We are doing a RCCL pre tour and will be staying at the Sophie Station Suites. Has anyone stayed there? Any advice? How were the kitchens? Coffee makers? Did you need to bring supplies (filters? coffee?) We are used to timeshares in the Caribbean and we usually schlep all sorts of stuff. TIA!! Arubamoose
