  1. That really is a good deal if they accept a near the minimum bid! Thx
  2. Is the bid amount per day pp or per cruise pp? For example $35pp for the entire cruise not $35 pp per day? TIA
  3. I put a hold on an inside cabin Regal Princess for 2/25/24 on 6/29/23. Could only get a guarantee cabin. CVP called me on 6/30/23. For $15 more pp, she booked a specific cabin for me. Maybe that is how it works now,
  4. Do you use the roon service phone extension or do you call the main dining room? Thx
  5. Has anyone tried a neck pillow like this? https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0BFRHGSZK/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?smid=A280H1WSYOIR68&psc=1
  6. The tea served is Afternoon Tea not High Tea. High Tea is a working class evening meal. Afternoon Tea consists of little sandwiches, scones and small sweets.
  7. I think we may stay on ship too. Kinda like a quiet ship with most passenger on land.
  8. We will be on Regal Princess in February. Wondering if Falmouth is a safe port. We are considering whether to take a ship's shore excursion or just stay on the ship. We are senior citizens and aren't up for the adventure of danger. I'm interested in hearing opinions from people who have visited recently or are visiting now. Thx
  9. We're on a Princess cruise going to Falmouth in early February. Worry about safety. Are ship's tours safe or should we just stay on ship? I don't get any thrill from danger!
  10. I don't know. I hope that is the case so that everyone who wants to go is able to go.
  11. Also, fun to take Casco Bay Ferry to Peaks Island. 15 minute ferry ride. Less than $8r/t for adults, less than $4 r/t for seniors & children. Ferry Terminal located next to cruise terminal. You can walk around island in about an hour. Golf cart tours available (recommend reserve in advance) or you can rent golf carts and bicycles. Several restaurants, shops and local artists. I recommend Inn at Peaks for lunch. Downfront for the best ice cream. Civil War Museum has fabulous view from back porch.
  12. I live in Portland Maine. If you are a pretty good walker there is plenty to see within walking distance of the cruise port. I've visited Halifax. It is very similar to Portland, easy to walk to sites. Both have points of interest further a field which would require transportation. Both places have local tour companies and taxis available. Boston is a bigger city. I would recommend Old Town Trolley to see the city.
  13. Hi All, I have an update. Our names came up on the wait list for the HAL shore excursion to L'anse aux Meadow! My advise to others is to make sure you are on the wait list. You may get lucky like us!
  14. We will be on the Holland America Nieuw Statendam September 2022 Quebec to Boston 10 day cruise. We are waitlisted for the shore excursion to L'Anse Aux Meadows. Our purpose in taking this cruise was to visit L'Anse Au Meadows. Does anyone know of a source for a shore excursion to L'Anse Aux Meadows other than through Holland America? We would do bus tour, rental car or private tour with driver. Please let me know if you know of any of these options. Thx
