  1. I love how organized your review is! Thank you for sharing. ๐Ÿ™‚
  2. Thank you for adding this info, George! Did you like Seaside? 11 days until we board Meraviglia for Christmas...
  3. Thank you for reporting back! Hope everyone is feeling better now. Just 11 more sleeps until we board. ๐Ÿ™‚
  4. Thank you! That is very kind of you to say. Social media (especially this kind of forum) is so tricky because the written word without the facial expressions can quickly be misinterpreted. I try to imagine I am talking to people face to face, and I LOVE meeting people from Cruise Critic on cruises!
  5. It is actually through messenger on the iPhone. So, you just log into the free wifi and the messages will send. I hope it still works on MSC. Royal Caribbean used to have the same, but I guess their IT dept. figured out how to block that. ๐Ÿ™‚ We will be on Meraviglia in 2 weeks, so I will see if it works there too.
  6. For the pros on Med/European cruises here: Are they refundable if you cancel before final payment, just like Caribbean cruises?
  7. PS: Unless you specifically want to book Virtuosa...
  8. Med cruises are out for 2021. There are 64 itineraries just for June 2021. See below. If you donโ€™t see them, you may need to clear your history in your browser. We are looking at booking Orchestra for one week, and Grandiosa for another week. Hope your search works this time. ๐Ÿ™‚
  9. We are just starting to explore options for Europe in Summer 2021. Since you have been through the planning, how did you research tour operators? Was there a specific site you used or recommend? I donโ€™t even know where to begin (besides asking here ๐Ÿ˜). We are probably doing a 7-day cruise with focus on the Greek isles, then a few days in Italy, followed by another 7-day Western Med cruise.
  10. Great! Thank you! Now I just have to decide if I want to book this week or wait until next month and book while on Meraviglia...
  11. I am waiting for this too. Whoever finds out or sees it posted, please report here. ๐Ÿ™‚Would love to start planning our first European cruises.
  12. @Ren1216 I just heard back from someone on our roll call. They said about 10-20% of people dressed up more (dress your best). They report there were not many suits at all. ๐Ÿ™‚Enjoy your cruise
  13. ๐Ÿ˜‚ Easy to confuse. Yes, warm jacket if you are in studio B for the drill. Enjoy your cruise in January! Someday, when I am no longer tied to school breaks, I would love to take advantage of Jan/ Feb deals ๐Ÿ˜

    Thank you for the review ๐Ÿ™‚ We board in one month. I look forward to seeing how Meraviglia compares with Seaside!
  15. Hi, LuCruise! Always fun to see you here. Thank you for being such a loyal follower, always with kind words. The noise was only bad on one night until about 11, when they had a party. Other days, it was more mild during the daytime hours. I just wanted to mention this, as it was an issue for them one night. However, having access to the much less utilized forward elevators was a good trade off for them. Enjoy your CP interior! It is fun to people-watch, and quite a comfy seat in the window. โ€Seeโ€ you next month. I do plan on doing a review, as I have (somewhat limited) wifi plan. Hope it is enough to cover the โ€˜semi-liveโ€™ review. ๐Ÿ™‚
