  1. So very sorry for your loss. kathy
  2. There is a very nice (free/public) site called Cruise Timetables. You can search for ships/itineraries leaving from a particular port OR (as I commonly use it) search for ships that will visiting particular ports of call during certain months. Highly recommended. kathy
  3. We were scheduled to fly to Copenhagen in early June on Lufthansa and then fly back on Air Canada, booked via Air2Sea. Non-refundable tickets. Air Canada cancelled one of our flights and sent an email saying if the replacement flight wasn't acceptable we could cancel. I called and they said Yes, you can cancel for a refund BUT the res is actually on Lufthansa so you have to call them. Called Lufthansa and again verified that we qualified for a refund BUT they said I had to call RC because I booked it through them. Called RC, same thing. Yes, we qualify for a refund. That was about six weeks ago. Still waiting for the refund but after calling RC the booking disappeared from the Lufthansa web site. I guess that is progress ha. If any of your flights are cancelled or rescheduled giving you a lengthy layover, you are eligible for a cash refund. kathy
  4. I wasn't sure where the refund would be coming from (cruise line or airline?) Thanks for the info! k.
  5. I cancelled an Air2Sea reservation six weeks ago (for a June cruise) and was told it would take "2 or 3 days to process". I thought that meant I would get a refund on my cc within several days. My res was cancelled within a few days (no longer showing on the airline's web site) but still no refund. I see lots of messages on here stating that people are being told it will take 1 to 2 months to get air refunds. Argh. kathy
  6. Yes, this stupid letter was an attempt to appease the govt so they wouldn't shut the cruise lines down. It didn't work, obviously, since the lines have all been forced to shut down anyway. (Their statements all claim it was "voluntary". Yeah, like someone "voluntarily" resigns when given a choice between resigning and being fired.) I'm sure when they start sailing again there will be no more talk about having your doctor sign any form! kathy
  7. Similar situation with Royal Carib and the airline we booked through them. Hoping they are just overwhelmed ... Looking forward to hearing from others about their experience. kathy
  8. One major benefit to ReliefBand is that they will alleviate symptoms that you are already feeling. With medications you generally have to take them PRIOR to the onset of symptoms or they don't work. (I know lots of people use the behind-the-ear patches throughout their cruise to prevent symptoms but those things cause severe dry mouth and blurred vision!) k.
  9. I have something called ReliefBand which looks like a watch, has a battery in it, and sends a signal to the same place on your wrist as those SeaBands. I am not troubled by motion sickness often but the couple of times I sailed through/near a hurricane I was thrilled to have my ReliefBand. Costs ~ $100 on Amazon. Highly recommended. kathy
  10. What is this reference to flying dutchmen? Thx! kathy
  11. Hi, Bruce. Our flight to Heathrow leaves at 8:05 a.m. I assume we need to be there at least 2 hours early? And isn't the airport about 40 minutes from the port? I'm guessing 5 a.m.-ish. Yes, we overnight there so we can leave any time. I'm doing the online check-in and Crystal is asking if I want to prepay for their transfer to the airport. Thanks for any info. k.
  12. Are taxis readily available at the port of Piraeus? We would be leaving our ship for the airport around 5 a.m. I am debating if we should book transfers with the cruise line or just take a taxi. Thanks in advance for your help. kathy
  13. How would that work if we are flying into Rome a couple of days early? I assume their transportation would be "airport to port" but we would be going "airport to hotel" and then "hotel to port" a couple days later. k.
  14. Seadaze10: (1) I found that the times didn't work well for us if we flew to Rome and then to the States. (2) Our roll call only has about 10 posts so far. In the past there were sometimes pages and pages of posts on a roll call thread by this point. Do you think it is because the roll call search engine is broken and people can't find it? I really wish they hadn't "upgraded" the interface to this web site. I don't find it an improvement, personally! k.
  15. Thanks for the tips, everyone. I have been looking at open jaw itineraries instead of 2 one-ways and the fares are less than half what I was seeing before. I will select some flights and give Crystal a call. k.
