  1. I suffer from motion sickness on ocean cruises but never on the 4 river cruises we have been on. The only thing I can't do is walk the wrong way and look at the sites going by as I am walking. That kind of makes me dizzy and queasy. I also face the same way the ship is sailing. But sitting on board and watching the amazing sites going by never makes me sick. Don't even worry about it....go and enjoy!
  2. My sometimes travel agent asks me sometimes for advice when she is going somewhere we have been and she hasn't. That makes me feel good lol. Of course I have learned so much from the CC boards and I also read a few bloggers that cruise a lot and get a lot of good tips from them also. It feels good to get on a ship and know what to do.
  3. Thank you for posting about the Volendam. We are doing an Alaskan cruise on her on May 22nd and are really looking forward to it. We haven't cruised for about 2 years and I have missed it. About a month to go....YAY!
  4. There is only 1 person that posted a roll call for May 22nd sailing. It was quite a long time ago. I am on that sailing but did not join the roll call as we are with friends who do not do the "Meet & Greet" so I passed on joining.
  5. I get asked a lot of times how I know "something about something" and I tell them that CC is my bible for info and I always look/ask here first if I need some info. Great site!
  6. Really enjoyed reading your review. St. Kitts really has grown so much in the past 10 years. One of our favourite islands so it was nice to hear you enjoyed it. Thanks again for a great reivew.
  7. Yes I believe I did see that picture and it was a quad...upper bunk showing. I figured it would be similar without the bunk...just like seeing exactly what we are getting lol. We booked a guaranteed inside MM and supposedly got an upgrade to a K, large inside. We won't be in it too much anyhow so that is okay. Thanks for your reply victOriann.
  8. Thanks so much for that info. Good to know!
  9. Anybody have pictures of of this or similar large inside cabin. Will it be quiet...it is on Deck 2-Main level. Thanks alot.
  10. We arrive at the airport around 8:30 p.m. and are heading to English Bay area. Are there a lot of taxi's at the airport or is it better to book a car ahead of time? What would be the approx. cost for the taxi? Thanks for your help.
  11. We also stopped at the Papyrus shop and bought our zodiac sign (we are the same) and 1 for our daughter. Very reasonable I thought but then got it home and had them framed lol. I found the camel ride very scary and just had him walk me in front of the pyramids in the background to get that touristy picture and then I got off. My camel was growling and I know he didn't like me haha. I had to do it though. I went to the light show....husband stayed behind....I could have missed it but wanted to experience everything offered. I wasn't that impressed but it was okay. We had a Nile view room but were only in our room such a short time that it seemed a shame not to be able to really enjoy it. Your pictures are wonderful and bring back such great memories! Thanks again for taking the time out to write a review!
  12. I could not nap in the afternoon as I did not want to miss anything while we were sailing on the Nile. I say in my room in the armchair pulled up at the window taking hundreds of pictures while my husband snoozed away on the bed lol. I kept thinking....I have seen this same scene in the movies! Such an amazing experience. Did you experience the vendors that hooked onto the ship with ropes and got pulled along by the ship. We had quite a few. They would show their wares and if you wanted a closer look, they would toss them up to the top deck. You bartered and then put the money in the plastic bag and tossed it back down to them. Sometimes it got quite heated with the bartering lol.
  13. We did our Egyptian trip with Insight Tours in Oct/Nov. of 2017 and it was hot! There were only 10 of us in our group along with our guide who was wonderful. There was never a question of whether all of us could go to Abu Simbel....it was part of our tour. We had an option of hot-air ballooning over the Valley of the Kings to watch the sunrise and it was absolutely spectacular!!! Once we landed, our bus picked us up and then we toured Valley of the Kings on land. Very neat to do that in that way. Loving your write-up as it is bringing lots of great memories. This trip far exceeded my expections. Thanks for your review.
  14. Thank you for your review. We will be on her in May for an Alaskan cruise and are looking forward to it.
  15. I like having that like button even if I find their symbols for it odd. It is nice not having to go into the write-up and say I like your write-up lol.
