  1. We are going to be on the Seaview in a little over a week😀 Can we use USD to get chips in the casino or do we have to use Euros for chips? Is this the best way to get chips for table play or is there a different/better option? Thanks!
  2. I agree that the Seaview wouldn't be a good choice for a relax by the pool vacation--it's on a port intensive Med itinerary right now. Doesn't lend itself to the beach vacation vibe.
  3. That is odd. Although, I can probably tolerate that better than rocking. Here's to hoping for weird vibrations and not rocking 🤣 Thanks! Rachel
  4. Thanks! Did you notice the movement all throughout the ship or mainly in YC?
  5. We are currently booked in 16020 on the Seaview Western Med cruise out of Civi. Being that YC is forward, has motion been an issue? We are cruising in June if that makes a difference for the seas in that region. Also, I saw a picture of the hairdryer on board. Is it a "real" hairdryer or does it feel like someone is blowing on your hair like other cruiselines? Just trying to determine how much Bonine to bring and if I need my travel hairdryer. Thanks! Rachel
  6. Thank you! We are YC, so it's whatever the package was before the changes. I will have to see if I can find it.
  7. We are on Seaview in June:) We booked August 2018. Should we have gelato included? Do you know what specific drink exclusions we will have? I have tried following all of the drink posts and it gives me a headache. I thought about calling MSC, but I'm afraid that will give me a bigger headache Thanks! Rachel
  8. We are booked on our first MSC cruise this coming June. We decided to book the deluxe Yacht Club cabin. I have been reading the Seaview reviews and it is a little bothersome. In general, I try not to put too much emphasis on reviews, but there are common complaints of rude service and poor food. When I notice a pattern of complaints I tend to pay more attention. So, who has taken this cruise and had a good experience? I have considered looking at other lines before final payment. This is for my husband's 50th and I don't want a cruise with rude, poor service. Thanks! Rachel
  9. I'm looking at an NCL itinerary that arrives in Havana at 8pm and then spends the next day/overnight and departs at 6am the following day. Has anyone done this itinerary? If so, did you get off the ship the first night? Do they let people disembark or do you have to wait til morning? I'm trying to decide if this itinerary is worth it or to go with the typical overnight stay. Thanks! Rachel
  10. It is $2388 per person for the deluxe Yacht Club suite for that sailing.
  11. Thank you for this info. I am happy to hear you didn't have any issues!
  12. My husband and I have done the 21 day Best of Europe tour through Rick Steves and I have several more I would like to do. I have more of his books than I care to admit. However, when this type of article comes out I think it exposes a little of how disconnected he can be with how most Americans are able to travel. For our RS tour, we traveled on a 50 person bus through 6 countries in 21 days. Now, the bus wasn't filled as there were only 28 of us. We moved from city to city seeing the "must sees" of each area and taking pictures. We took group pictures throughout Europe and it was always at the suggestion of our tour guide. Our guide would also let us know when great picture opportunities were coming up. I have two scrapbooks of photos from a wonderful trip. I have many memories, but sadly memories do fade and I love looking back at our once in a lifetime trip. One of the things we received in our tour kit was a money belt. Very similar idea to the "kangaroo pouch," but it goes inside your pants. The thought was to keep everything safe and away from pickpockets. I think it's disingenuous to remark about people trying to keep their personal belongings safe in cities that are know for petty theft. It also doesn't seem realistic for people who have 10 days to 2 weeks in Europe to not move about and see the sights. Yes, it is awesome to be able to sit back and soak it all in, but when on a limited time schedule, it just isn't always that possible. It seems he forgets he spends months in Europe every year. I stop taking pictures and visiting tourist sites when I have visited an area multiple times, but I would never expect a first timer not to partake in those things. Some of his thoughts may be on point, but I don't think they always come across well. A word about his books. I recently purchased his Mediterranean Cruise Ports book because we just booked a cruise to that area. Sadly, Genoa(Genova), Santa Margherita, Portofino, Corsica and Palma de Mallorca are not included. Those are all areas we hope to visit with Genoa, Ajaccio and Palma de Mallorca being our ports. He may not be interested in those areas so chose not to include them, but they are very common ports of call for Western Med cruises. I now have ordered Fodors to fill in the blanks. I have found if his tours go there, his books are great. If they don't visit those areas, it can be hit or miss if they are included in his guidebooks. Rachel
  13. We have always had mid ship cabins, but YC is forward. How are the forward cabins in terms of motion? We are sailing the Western Mediterranean in June if that makes a difference. Thanks! Rachel
  14. We have booked the YC for June 2019 on the Seaview out of Rome. I can't wait! Thanks for all of the insight! Happy Cruising! Rachel
