  1. I have several questions about our stop at Laguna San Rafael and would appreciate hearing from your experiences. Our ship anchors at the entrance to the lake, so we're limited in our options. Did you take a ship's excursion? Catamaran or by land? I know it's quite remote in that area - are there any tours available at the dock? Is there a town at the dock? If you booked with someone other than the ship, can you recommend a tour operator? Was it by boat or land? Please share your thoughts - pros and cons. Much appreciated!
  2. I wonder what the guidance is for those who've been vaccinated.
  3. Dale, We evolved from long-time Princess cruisers to long-time Celebrity (which we really like and consider much better than Princess) to Oceania (which we love and consider even better). We like the relaxed feel of Oceania - no formal nights. We especially like that passengers don't have their hands all over the food in the buffet; the staff spoon/serve onto plates. And we like the absence of extra charges for dining in "specialty" restaurants. Personal preference.
  4. Our first O cruise was on Regatta on Deck 3. We thought it was lovely. Quiet.
  5. I'm glad she's finally gotten clearance. Unfortunately, we were supposed to be on her for the next 2 weeks. 😪 It looks like Marina is just now entering the Panama Canal. https://www.cruisemapper.com/?imo=9438066
  6. Wow, I never considered this! Will have to look into it. Thanks!
  7. I never thought of shutting off utilities....any problems with doing that?
  8. No pets for us. We just lock the door and go!
  9. Yes, I've read horror stories of cell phone charges at sea. I use my phone's camera, so right away I switch it to airplane mode until I'm back on solid ground.
  10. Thanks for your suggestions. P.S. I love your name: "No Fuss Travel"! 😄
  11. Thanks, hubofhockey. I'm looking forward to the luxury of time and seeing what my limit is!! 🙂
  12. VPN!! I keep forgetting to research and install one. This is a good reminder. Thanks.
  13. Alcpa1, thanks for the suggestions. I especially like your comment about rugs. I didn't want one, didn't intend to buy one...but now there's a gorgeous Moroccan rug in my living room! 🙂 3 weeks! Yes, I think I'm going to enjoy retirement. 🙂
  14. This is good to know. Thanks, Mrs. Gee. I’ll check it out.
