  1. Would you be happy or frustrated if the cruise you were on were extended due to a hurricane? Personally I would love it, but I can see how missing work or kids missing school could be an issue. Thoughts?
  2. Definitely get that Rainforest Pass, it is totally worth it. You can do some searching online or here in the forum to get more info.
  3. How many boards are you going to post this same question to??? The cruise lines don't set passport requirements, they follow each country's rules. Seeing the same question on multiple boards is annoying and useless.
  4. So the Governor announced today that he won't seek re-election but that is not sitting well and there are now MASSIVE protests planned for tomorrow, Monday, July 22 with possibly hundreds of thousands marching. They plan on shutting down the major freeways there as well, not sure how that would affect getting to either port. This would not be a week I would want to port there, and I wish the residents of PR the best of luck in getting what they want!
  5. We just returned home from the Dubai-Singapore 14 day and LOVED the ship. I can't wait to hear and see it through another's eyes. We spent 5 days post-cruise in Singapore and loved that as well. We had a regular balcony on Deck 11 mid-ship but were very comfortable the whole time. You are right about the amount of storage (and hangers!) in the cabins. We were even able to get robes from our cabin steward! I have yet to do the review or post pics (although I did lots on my FB page for my friends throughout the trip). The shoe Effectors had not opened yet so I am looking forward to reviews and pics from that! Showgirl is gorgeous and Silk Road is good, just make sure you get seats where you can see the FLOOR where a lot of dancing happens and it's hard to see from most of the seats. Enjoy your cruise!
  6. …. ...and if a port call are you talking dock or tender? All these details need answers before you can get a correct answer.
  7. We have 5 days there post-cruise in May and all of your tips are GREAT! Keep 'em coming. Thanks I also see the airport is one of the best attractions and a lot of it can be visited without needing a flight. As ours is 6am we will go visit it another day.
  8. Thanks....we are staying in Chinatown so that will work great!
  9. I get it….it's terrifying the first time you hear it and frightening/annoying the rest of the time. Yeah, there was never any rhyme or reason to the one on Disney. I did have an engineer tell me it was a bulkhead and they are made to move and twist with the ship but that didn't calm my nerves in the office. Not saying that is your case but I do get it. Have you tried searching for your ship and cabin # both here and on Google to see if anyone else has posted about this same problem?
  10. When I worked on Disney there was a bulkhead "somewhere" above my office I shared with Port Adventures. When we would be in rougher seas that sucker would make the LOUDEST metal-on-metal pop you ever heard. All of us would jump. But no one could figure out what or where it was and being a ship we all just had to live with it. It doesn't help you paid all that $$$ for the experience but it does show it happens on all kinds of ships, old and new, big and small. Even if the ship crew has known about it you can be sure shoreside reservations doesn't know. Unless they block the cabin for selling it will just be listed as another great suite. You can try asking Guest Services if there is more compensation (specialty dining, OBC) but I doubt you'll be able to get much more than they have already offered. Be happy you are not on a B2B, I guess.
  11. Well they have very low rates compared to many of the other places we looked at. We are really looking forward to staying on her.
  12. Here is another video.....SEARCH is your friend....
  13. Here is a video a passenger on the FIRST cruise (this week) posted. Maybe subscribe and they will post more!
  14. Have you tried searching Shanghai travel papers??
  15. First, kudos to the amazing woman who called out all the RUDE passengers (clearly missing out on 5 minutes at the buffet as they hogged their poolside chair for an hour!) who felt they could jump ahead of you. And secondly you are much sweeter than I would have been as I "accidentally" ran over every single one of their toes as I said "OOPSIE! Just got my learners permit for this thing!" I would happily stand aside to not only let a wheelchair on before me but a true lady! Hoping some people read and LEARN from your post!
