  1. Oh, I should have said I was looking for insurance just to cover the trip if we had to cancel. I honestly was not thinking a about medical. That now, is another ball of wax to explore. 😞
  2. Asking not because of Covid, but just in general. Is it better to buy insurance for your cruise through the cruise line when booking or making final payment, or perhaps is it a better deal to go with Allianz or AIG or someone else? Thanks for your thoughts.
  3. I'm assuming the Medallian is similar to the Disney Magic Band?
  4. You know, I think I realized that because I went to Google Maps. But, what I don't understand is why the rail is slower. Does it make multiple stops? Or is it one stop in Anhorage which is a long stop.
  5. Comparing Princess and Holland America Alaska cruise tours. It seems as though HAL transports you from Anchorage to Denali via Rail, and then from Denali to Whittier via Bus. Princess seems to do it in reverse. Bus to Denali and Rail from Denali to Whittier. Which seems better? I think I'd prefer the Rail from Denali to Whittier VS. taking the bus. Your thoughts?
  6. Thanks all. I think I got my Chicago airport mixed up in this post , but all good.
  7. Hello. I have a 7:00am flight out of YVR to Chicago. Will I have to go through customs first? The reason I am asking is that I have a 1.5 hour connection in Chicago and need to know if I'll have to go through Customs in Chicago, or is it taken care of in Vancouver. Also, is 7:00am too early? I will be staying at the Fairmont Airport Hotel. Thank you.
  8. Thanks all. I think I might book the Fairmont (I have anxiety about getting to the airport) . Since I am months out I booked and got a good rate. I'll check with stashing the bags at the Pan (obviously things can change ) once I get closer to the date (not till next year). Thanks all for your help!!!
  9. Hello. Will be docking in Vancouver.....flight home isn't until the next morning (8:00am). What is the best hotel option? Downtown, or AT the airport? Obviously, will have large luggage, etc. and want to spend the day sight seeing as we dock at 7:00AM. Thanks for your ideas.
  10. Is Alliance the underwriter for the regular Holland American insurance policy? I've been looking all over the site to figure out who to contact. Thanks.
  11. Naive question, so please forgive. Had my financial planner buy some CCL stock as part of my portfolio....so it's there with a bunch of other things (mostly mutual funds). What exactly would I need to send to Carnival? I don't have a certificate, nor do I have a personal account with CCL. What would I do?
  12. I didn't realize I had posted the question twice. But bottom line, since I cancelled like a week or two before THEY cancelled, does that mean I'm NOT entitled to the insurance money? Just wondering. Thanks all 🙂
  13. We paid the insurance at the same time we made our initial deposit. We got about $170 back to our credit card, $40 FCC and then NOTHING for the rest which comes out to $498 which is the cost of the two insurance policies via HAL
  14. just asking....please no judgement. So we cancelled on March 18 (prior to HAL cancelling) for an end of May Alaska Cruise/Tour. We have received our refund minus the $498 we paid for insurance. Shouldn't we have received the insurance money back? I mean, if we weren't supposed to fine, but just wondering? Thanks
