  1. Thanks so much. Have read many references to such insurance, but you provided many details needed to find this choice. Appreciate your help and time.
  2. Hlitner (Hank), Can you tell us who is the insurance provider and annual cost of this insurance? From whom did you purchase it? Thanks
  3. Thanks, all. We are doing as Leafeater and coming in for an extra night at the Davenport, also because of time change from the East Coast. How did you see the Spokane sites? There are 2 couples in our group and lots of walking can be difficult for one of us. Any food recommendations in Spokane?
  4. We also are on the June 2 cruise and are getting to Spokane/Clarkston a day early and staying a day longer in Portland. Would also appreciate any ideas for there or other stops on the trip. We have done many ocean cruises and a few European river cruises and are spoiled by the help and info on CC for those. Thanks in advance.
  5. EmilyJay and twangster Thanks so much for the terrific reports on NOS. Your insights and experiences are of great value to all, but especially for those of us going soon on this ship. It is always hard to plan and anticipate the changes on a revamped ship...you have helped us all.
  6. A second for the Blue Horizon in Vancouver. Stayed there once before and will again this August. Reasonable prices, but walkable to port area sites.
  7. Looking forward to your review, as we sail this same route at the end of the month on NOS. Know the routine of sailing on Spring Break, as I taught many years and we did lots of Break trips. Nice now that I am retired to do longer journeys at other times of the year! Have a super time, relax, and thanks for the live updates.
  8. Another vote for an additional level between Diamond+ and Zenith. Also like Jelayne's list of perks.
  9. Thanks for the help about pricing.We are on Navigator soon and today they had menus and prices posted on the Cruise Planner for both lunch and dinner. Happy to read of so many positive experiences.
  10. Can you give me the prices for lunch versus dinner? Thanks for the menus!
  11. We just did a 10 day Cuba on Azamara Journey in November. Yes, it was more expensive, but we had 6 days in Cuba and 3 ports (Havana (3 days ), Cienfuegos (1) and Santiago de Cuba (2), plus we got to an additional city (Trinidad) on an excursion from Cienfuegos. Azamara also provided us with an included superb evening in Havana at the gorgeously restored Alicia Alonso Theater where we spent 90 minutes with 20+ dancers, about 10 musicians and several singers performing wonderful cultural dances and music for just the Azamara passengers. Norris' wonderful, informative review noted in the post above will provide you with many details and info on a similar trip just completed. It all depends on what you want to see and do and how much time you want to spend in Cuba. Most lines are stopping for 5-6 hours in Havana and that is all. But that may be just the right thing for your family.
  12. Another vote for Costa Maya and using Native Choice for a tour to Mayan ruins and lunch in a home. They have several choices, with one set of ruins only an hour or so away. Vans are clean, have a/c, and tour guides knowledgeable. Lunch is delicious and safe to eat, with good restroom facilites. Cozumel itself does not really have ruins to visit. As others have said, you must ferry to the mainland and have a long ride to the closest ruins.
  13. Just finished a full transit of the Canal in late January, 2019. No yellow fever or unusual vaccinations mentioned or required. Visited each of the countries you mentioned with no issues and did not read or hear about any while there. Enjoy your trip!
  14. Went to the website for the ballet sailings and unfortunately the two Alaska ones are northbound on Millenium and we are on the one immediately afterwards going south! Oh, well, happy for those who will get an opportunity to see this. While we love Luminae, the menu could use some tweaking and new ideas, so maybe we might have some of that on the Alaska trip, since we miss out on the ballet....
