  1. Haven't stayed at the Marriott, but in 2010 we spent 4 nights days at the Hilton Stucky and thought it was fabulous. The location appealed to us...not on the main island but with easy access to everywhere in the city...and the quality of the hotel did not disappoint us.
  2. My travel philopophy: “Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” -Mark Twain To me that's more important than which cruise line will get me there.
  3. Regular internet (one account, one device at a time per stateroom) is free. There is no charge
  4. I'm not Ken the Cruiser, but have you looked at this one: https://www.oceaniacruises.com/baltic-cruises/london-to-dublin-NAU200703/?sr=%2Fcruise-finder%2F%23sailDates%3D2020|07%23destinations%3Dbalticandscandinavia%23cruiseLengths%3DEightToTen, or is that out of you time frame? Multiple nights in one port is not Oceania's normal modus operandi.
  5. Just a clarification: one needs to change only a portion of the total traip cost, but if I read the above statement correctly, only up to the amount that was actually charged is reimbursable. Is that correct?
  6. To each his own. But remember that location is an important consideration and that some of the extra amenities can be decline with a reduction in price. So those differences need to be included in any comparison. And, for a 10 day bruise a $1800 per suite difference is $900 per person, so one needs to include their traveling priorities. Different folks have different priorities and expectations. JIMO.
  7. Here's the link to the Explorer that compares all the staterooms, alluded to above. https://www.rssc.com/ships/seven_seas_explorer Concierge means D and E Superior means F1 and F2 Deluxe means G1 and G1. Concierge and Superior are the same size, but differ in amenities, listed in each description
  8. Nor have we experienced any inconsistency issues in the specialty restaurants.
  9. Following common sense rules, not flaunting your wealth, following the local advice as to where not to go at what hours, always be aware of your surroundings. Oh, yes, and I also use this strategy in foreign countries, too 😉.
  10. I wouldn't paint Mexico with such broad a brush as many posters have here. Yes, there are areas that are not safe and the State Department lists them as level 4 Advisories (Do Not Go) such as Colima state, Guerrero state, Michoacán state, Sinaloa state, and Tamaulipas state. Then there are areas that are level 3 Advisories (Reconsider Travel) which include areas such as Chihuahua state, Coahuila state, Durango state, Estado de Mexico state, etc. But there are many areas that are categorized as level 2 Advisories (Exercise Increased Caution) which include popular areas such as Baja California state, Baja California Sur state, Guanajuato state, Hidalgo state, Mexico City, Oaxaca state, Quintana Roo state, Yucatan state, plus several others. To put Level 2 Advisories (Exercise Increased Caution) into perspective, this is also the level assigned to China, Denmark, Egypt, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Russia, South Africa, Spain, and the United Kingdom, to name a few.
  11. If you turn on WiFi after putting the phone in airplane mode, updates will continue to occur, whether manually or automatically, at least that's true for my Android phone.
  12. And if you have a reservation and your in-suite partner joins you, that's his/her reservation also. Each "attendance" is a used reservation no matter who makes it. And beware, you can invite fellow travelers only if the window is open for both of you, so if there is a lower category stateroom, you can't invite the folks in it before their window opens.
