  1. Most interesting, thanks. By your recommendation we are now too old for Macchu Pichu ! However I think you're probably right, in our case at least. Ginny and I had started taking a medication for the prevention of altitude sickness prior to the trip, which worked pretty well during our tour that included altitudes of up to 12,000 feet. In working days we had a project in Bolivia at similar altitudes - and higher. All reported that the best thing for that sickness was the teabags - coca teabags (Mate de Coca), also recommended by locals. Did you try them ? It would be interesting to know how they'd compare with "modern" medicine
  2. Can you bring furniture aboard as well ? Fit for a King Berties Chair
  3. Haven't been on Mariner for a few years, I hope the stairwell, hallway and elevator lobby art is still as good as it was, especially deck 6 🙂 I found it most enjoyable.
  4. I booked a fourteen day cruise for next year, OV, all five perks included. Later I checked Sail Away rate, expecting to see a difference of course, I was shocked to see Sail Away was approx $2,800 cheaper in total ($1,400pp).

  6. I thought state law forbids a drink package in Hawaii or are we talking sodas?
  7. Thanks for the hotel and local pics, we're booked there for next February and trying to decide whether to come in early pre-cruise.
  8. Thanks, we're booked that way on a B2B next year.
  9. If the post-cruise RCL number doesn't help just call the credit card company and dispute the charge.
  10. We drank ours when packing on the last day. Kinda fit the mood - actually it wasn't bad at all🥂
  11. Cape Horn was in sight in the distance but the captain decided circumnavigating it wasn't going to happen. BOO. I'd feel cheated if that happened when we do it 😞

    Oma

    Which port ? Some cruiselines have moved to San Antonio but I believe some still use Valparaiso.
  13. Another vote for Victor Bodden 🙂 http://boddentours.com/
