  1. We tend to take everything plus the kitchen sink when we go camping with our tent, so I'm not going to take any extras on a cruise, just my daily medications.
  2. My wife, son and I will be going on the Norwegian Fjords cruise on the 25th August, I booked this particular cruise back in November last year and will be in a Concierge Class stateroom, this was when a third passenger went at half fare offer was on. The main reason for booking a CC stateroom was that for the 3 of us the total fare came to around £3,000, which I thought was good value for that type of stateroom and strangely enough was (at that time) cheaper than a lot of the standard balcony staterooms. I chose a (hopefully) good location towards the aft of the ship that only had staterooms above and below and not an obstructed view from the balcony. The choice of an embarkation lunch in the MDR was also a deciding factor as our son has Aspergers Syndrome and is uncomfortable in a crowded environment and we wanted to get him slowly integrated into cruise life without the hustle and bustle of the buffet.
  3. Not exactly dress code related, our son will be coming with us on our Norwegian Fjords cruise, he is aware of the dress code for evening meals and will dress appropriately ……. but at some stage during the day I'm sure he will wear shorts and tee shirts, which I'm getting a bit apprehensive about as he has a passion for tattoos and his arms and legs are covered with them. I'm worried that he may get some unwarranted adverse comments about his tattoos.
  4. Many thanks for such a comprehensive document, I've printed a copy for reference, it will be very useful for my son who likes to try different cocktails. Not sure though if I would feel very asking the bartender if he has a Buttery Nipple or a Screaming Orgasm
  5. Very true, as a child and teenager I suffered from very bad asthma, so bad that on a couple of occasions my doctor drove me home from his surgery, then when was about 18 it disappeared completely and have never had an attack since then although I do keep an inhaler handy when I get a chesty cold
  6. Have to agree with previous comments regarding age restrictions, I tried to book an excursion on the Flam railway including a walk at the top, it said only for those under 65 years old and I'm 67 (although a fit 67), when I went to book it my details had been automatically greeted out
  7. A bit off topic but if you are going on the cruise departing on 25 August I think that the port time in Flam had been extended to a 6.30 depart time which give you a bit more leeway to arrange your trips
  8. It's 6 weeks from today until our cruise and when I went into Manage My Account and checked on my Express Pass the Print My Luggage tags link had been activated which enabled me to print them off, so I would think that it is 6 weeks from the date of cruise. I was also able to print off my docs which is entitled Guest Ticket Booklet.
  9. Try this link and go to the message dated 1 May 2016 and scroll down until you get to the menu, it's the latest I could find at the moment but I have seen later ones although the items on the menu are all the same: https://boards.cruisecritic.com/topic/2266034-photo-trip-review-reflection-ta/
  10. Thanks very much for the info, very helpful
  11. He will be sharing a cabin with us, but thanks for the tip about the Mast Grill, that sounds like a good alternative, one which he may prefer
  12. We have booked a Concierge class stateroom for our forthcoming Fjords cruise and will be taking our adult son with us who has Asbergers' Syndrome. We thought that by having lunch (although not a big menu choice, but perfectly adequate for lunch) and maybe a couple of drinks in the MDR would be a good way of getting him acclimatised to the hustle and bustle of cruise ship life in a more relaxed manner than by going to the Buffet
  13. I've been trying to access Manage My Booking on the CC Website and for the last couple of days I keep getting this message: We've got your info. However, we're unable to bring up your account right now, so please try again later. Has anyone else been getting this message, or have experienced this in the past.
  14. On our last cruise, with RCCL, I was "suited and booted" on the formal nights but did notice that there were quite a few dressed a bit more casually, although certainly no shorts, caps or tee shirts. On other occasions it was a polo shirt with cargo pants. I've no real problem at all with what other people wear, its just that if I was going out for an evening meal even at our local restaurants I would also be dressed smart/casual smart.
