  1. Thanks everyone. We will bring one. We will be in Greenland so want to stay dry because it's chilly even in summer.
  2. We will be on Caribbean Princess soon and see that rain is predicted for some ports. Should we bring our umbrella or are they provided in the minisuites?
  3. Does anyone remember if they provide hand and body lotion? I know the shampoo is in a pump in the shower and makes my hair gloppy so I bring my own. But i would rather not have to bring a large bottle of lotion.
  4. How many formal nights are there usually on a 16 night cruise? Does my husband need a jacket for those nights? Thanks for your help.
  5. Is te 7 p.m. show as crowded as the 9:15? We will be on soon and are trying to slightly plan ahead.
  6. Very helpful. Thanks again. We are getting very excited about the trip next week.
  7. Thanks everyone for all your help. Think we will just take a taxi from one of the suggested companiies. We will ask if there is a set rate--airport to cruise port and cruise port to airport. I forgot to ask if tips are expected. We will be paying by credit card. In NYC we get a screen where you can add a tip. Are tips expected and is it handled by the credit card screen total? Thanks again. We leave next week.
  8. I haven't got phone service abroad so don't think I can do it. I wouldn't really use my phone except for that so don't think it would be worth it. I do like Uber since they give you the price before hand and no money is excahnged. It is much simpler than taxi negotiations.
  9. Thank you. It does sound more convenient to just go outside and select a taxi from a reputable company. Maybe the conceirge on the ship can help us book one ahead of time when we are leaving the ship for the airport. At home we usually use Uber or Lyft. Thanks again for all the suggestions.
  10. Taxi to and from cruise terminal and airport in Stockholm. Thanks for all the suggestions. If you book a taxi before hand, does your travel agent do it or do you just go on line and contact the company? How do you know what time you will be ready to leave the airport? Do you just assume an hour or 1 1/2 hour after arrival? Does the driver come in to find you with your name on a sign? If you just go outside the airport to find a taxi, is it totally chaotic? Thanks all.
  11. Hi Cruisers, We will be flying in and out of Stockholm, to and from the Marina in June. We are wondering if taxis are readily available and if they take credit cards. Do any of you know how far it is from airport to cruise terminal? Are the cabs metered? Thanks for any information you can give us.
  12. Hi Cruisers, Thanks so much everyone. Misery loves company. Since there is a possibility that it was bacterial, maybe we did carry something home with us. I doubt that it could be just change of food coming home. We are on cruises about 1/3 of the year--long ones and all over the globe. The worst we ever came home with was a cold. We have been to Peru before and were okay but have heard from several sources that this area is frequently problematic. It is the only place where we have had to walk across squishy sanitizing chemicals to get back on the ship. The sickness is gone. We will remember it! We are on Marina again this June but out of Sweden. Hopefully, no Peru germs still lurking round. Thanks again for your responses.
  13. Hi Cruisers, We were on Marina for a b2b 34 days from Tahiti to NY. Halfway through in Peru the ship picked up Norovirus. The captain and crew couldn't have done more to keep everyone healthy. We washed and sanitized and were (with the exception of a couple stomach rumblings) fine for the 2 weeks before getting to NY. The problem had run its course by the time we got to NY. All restrictions had been lifted, and all services were back in place. It was a wonderful cruise. Three days at home (Long Island, NY) I got the stomach sickness and a few days later my husband got it. We had not been out and about socializing so it couldn't have come from here. Has anyone had a similar experience days after leaving the ship? Can a virus lie dormant and come out at home? It has completely surprised us. Let me know if you have heard of anything similar. Thanks for your feedback.
  14. We finally called customer relations and explained the situation to someone named Bob. We sent him a copy of our statement. He was great, very polite and professional. By the end of the day we had received a call saying the check would be here in 4 to 6 weeks!
