  1. Ginnyfyr - that's great to hear. Thanks for the update.
  2. Two keys to avoiding altitude sickness is to stay hydrated and avoid alcohol.
  3. We're booked on the Summit to Canada/Greenland/Iceland/Ireland in August - a reservation booked Dec-2018.....since then the price has more than doubled. Our lesson learned.....book early
  4. Looking at this subject with regard to Chase Sapphire Reserve, I found the following on ThePointsGuy.com: Various Chase credit cards offer trip cancellation and interruption protection, including the Chase Sapphire Reserve and Chase Sapphire Preferred. To get coverage on these cards, you must charge all or a portion of the trip to your credit card account and/or the rewards program associated with the account. The trip cancellation and trip interruption benefit provided by both cards may provide reimbursement for eligible travel expenses charged to the cardholder’s account up to $10,000 per covered person and up to $20,000 per trip if a loss results in cancellation or interruption of the travel arrangements. The benefit provided by both cards explicitly covers “quarantine of you or your traveling companion imposed by a physician or by a competent governmental authority having jurisdiction, due to health reasons” but explicitly excludes “your disinclination to travel due to an epidemic or pandemic.” So, you won’t be covered by Chase credit cards if you decide not to travel because of an epidemic or pandemic. For what it's worth.....
  5. We've had a lot of luck using Tours By Locals - they will customize a tour to fit your interests and your physical ability. We've used them in Berlin, Munich, Quebec City and more. Highly recommended.
  6. Yes, Chase raised the fee, but the difference is likely made up on the savings from not needing to buy travel insurance. For us, that and the travel credit make it worth while.
  7. I tell myself that age is just a state of mind.....however occasionally my body tells me something a bit different. Aging beats not aging!
  8. We were in a CS on deck 10 on Millennium going through the Panama Canal a few years ago...never had an issue...we actually liked the overhang as we were protected from rain storms.
  9. Absolutely - the folks in Luminae dealt with our group that went from 4 to 14 people at dinner, depending on the night. Always accommodating !
  10. That's great information - I wasn't aware of the issue with satellite positioning. Thanks very much
  11. Noooo way! I'd much rather our butler restock the frig with our favorite beverages and leave our clothes to us.
