    Midnight Buffet

    It's been years since they were a regular thing. Now they only have one on a Journeys cruise. EM

    Previously "Royal loyal" now to try MSC - confused!

    The Fantasia class ships have some balcony cabins on decks 8&9 that have a tub/shower. They are also present on Seaside, I had one on deck 14 and saw several others. EM

    Finding a Travel Agent specializing in Cruises

    Unless you have an adblocker working, you will see a lot of ads on this site. Many are for travel agencies (which is one reason you can't discuss travel agencies here). Or go back to the home page of Cruise Critic: https://www.cruisecritic.com/ You will see Find Your Cruise Ship Vacation, and under that Find a Cruise. Click on the drop down menu under that, and choose a destination. Or continue across the menu and put in dates, etc. It will bring up a list of cruises, every one with a link to a travel agency. Try them out and see what they have to offer. It won't cost you anything. Meanwhile, read more here, ask questions, so that you will know what questions to ask the agents. EM
  4. Apparently you have a problem with roll calls. You tried to start one on Feb. 3, but neglected to put the date in the thread title. Many people will not open a thread that does not state what it's content is. But at least you had the date correct in the body. This one you are trying to start has an incorrect date: it should read October 20, 2019. (not the 21st). Go back to the Princess roll call forum for Grand Princess https://boards.cruisecritic.com/forum/214-grand-princess-roll-calls/ and try again to start a roll call with the proper thread title. EM
  5. You have incorrectly posted in the forum for people needing help using the forums. There is a forum here for Disabled Cruising, under Special Interest Cruising. There is a sub-forum there for Europe. You might also ask on the Ports of Call board for Europe. EM

    Silhouette Cabin 6172

    It's a partially obstructed cabin for 2, with bed by the balcony. No idea why it would be the only cabin available. I would be happy with it. EM

    Choosing a right cabin

    Armonia class is the only one with cabins on deck 7. EM

    Princess Excursion in Panama

    I don't believe he has sailed yet. He is active on the Island Princess for 3/30/19. EM

    Packing for a 19 day trip/cruise

    Limit the pairs of shoes you take. Seriously. I prefer three pairs, but have done it with two. On a long cruise. Sneakers and sandals that can be worn in the evening, too. We travel with a carryon and backpack no matter how long the cruise. EM

    Choosing a right cabin

    We have done the checking you - or your travel agent should have done. It is what it is. Here is the deck plan: At least you came here and found out, and can now work on changing it. EM

    Picking an Italian Cruise

    Oh yes they are. There are ships sailing in the Med all year round. Go to www.cruisetimetables.com and plug in the ports you want to see in the Ports of Call list and see what you find. EM

    Choosing a right cabin

    Are you sure that is your cabin number? On the Lirica deck plans, 7063 is a restricted view Oceanview cabin, no balcony. It is clearly marked. EM

    Picking an Italian Cruise

    Suggest you consider MSC Divina. She does a 7 day r/t Livorno in august 2020. You could fly into Florence and spend a couple of days, then travel to Livorno and board the ship. EM https://www.cruisetimetables.com/fromlivornoflorencepisaitaly-aug2020.html

    Disembark food from ship

    Apparently the OP is on Equinox on a Western Caribbean itinerary. Debark port would be Miami. EM
