  1. I’ve been using TravelSafe Classic for the past few years. They do not make you insure every last penny in order to keep the pre-existing condition waiver. I only insure enough to get myself on a plane home in case of emergency. They paid my last claim in full within two weeks when I had to cancel for a medical reason. https://tripinsurancestore.com/how-travel-insurance-pre-existing-medical-conditions-coverage-works/?gclid=CjwKCAiA_MPuBRB5EiwAHTTvMQB1IDqB5sPAOdG0JAXi_Wsgfegkp5gDtwkDe_P8_tHPmtB8FE7uzhoCkxIQAvD_BwE

  3. I was on TAP from Barcelona to the US with a change of planes in Lisbon in September. My only problem was finding their check in desk at the Barcelona airport. (I must have walked past it three times. It’s tucked back in a corner, I think #514 or thereabouts.) Other than that, the flight to Lisbon was fine - no worse than American or United for a couple hours.
  4. I just flew TAP from Barcelona to Newark with a stop in Lisbon, business class. No problems at all. The lie flat seats were comfortable, food was fine, and we made it to New York a half hour early. I booked with Celebrity Air for a little over $1k ( one way) when the other airlines wanted almost $4k. If you join their FF club, you can get a “fast track” through Barcelona security.
  5. Will you have a car, or are you taking the train to Seward? If you can get to Whittier from Seward ( and it won’t be cheap), the 26 glacier cruise will guarantee no seasickness, whereas the Kenai Fjords will be a much rougher ride if you don’t get lucky, and you won’t know the sea conditions until the day of the tour. If the kids want to see animals, the Seward Sealife Center is great. You can even catch a glimpse of some sea otters in the bay from the benches outside the center. The tours from both Whittier and Seward are long days for little ones.
  6. Gosh, thanks for posting the above link. We are on the slant by the bump-out, too. Housekeeping supervisor came by and said that she would investigate. Of course the noise had stopped when she was here. I’m going to record it on my phone the next time it happens.
  7. The One Hotel is wonderful. Every detail is covered to make you feel welcome. When I asked the concierge if there were an ATM nearby, he sent a bellman to walk with me a couple blocks so that I wouldn’t get lost. They have a beautiful spa and the rooftop pool and restaurant, “Mood,” are lovely as well. https://www.hotelstheone.com/en?utm_source=Google My Business&utm_medium=Boton sitio web&utm_campaign=HTO Their five star rating is certainly deserved. Winner in the "Best Urban Hotel in Spain" category in Condé Nast Traveler’s Gold List.
  8. Currently sailing on the Reflection r/t Barcelona (6243). Is anyone else experiencing noise throughout the day? It sounds like they are lowering the tenders. It’s a loud, grating noise and really makes it hard to relax in your cabin. Housekeeping knows nothing about it. Thanks.
  9. Yes, I have bought this insurance several times and had two claims. The first time, the claim process was IMO unnecessarily complicated, but the second time, my claim was paid within two weeks with no problem.
  10. The online TA I sometimes use posts this note if you try to reserve a cabin either week. I booked a couple weeks on Celebrity Equinox instead. My sister and I are arriving from different cities, and I had flights and hotels all arranged for those weeks. Just didn’t want the hassle of starting over. System Error The sailing you have requested is no longer available
  11. Not yet, but I did want to try the NS. I wish she was doing the southern route.
  12. Not really a problem for me. My travel insurance will cover the FF miles redeposit fee, and the Riverside hotel reservation is refundable. It’s just a pain after I had everything arranged.
  13. Should, but didn’t offer. 😞. If we don’t book a different cruise, they will refund our deposits. If any other spring 2020 Caribbean 14-day voyage is selected, you will be re-accommodated in the same (or equivalent) stateroom category at the rate paid. In addition, the above Shipboard Credit (SBC) will be applied to the new booking based on the stateroom category booked. Cancellation Protection Plan cost and Taxes, Fees, and Port Expenses will be calculated based on the new booking. If you elect not to rebook, we will refund all funds paid to Holland America Line in full.
  14. Just got the email from HAL. Our 14 day back to back March 8th on the Nieuw Statendam is canceled. They’re offering us $75 per person ( veranda) to rebook on a different date in March. Glad I bought travel insurance. I had all my flights and hotels set up. Maybe they have a charter?
