  1. Cancel it yourself prior. I did the lift and shift without cancelling and asked repeatedly if the agent would cancel, he said it was automatic but they added it to my deposit amount. I was on the phone for 2 1/2 hours with this lift and shift so I decided to just leave it as is. Cancel before if you want your money back and not added to the deposit.
  2. Thanks for posting! I had booked a sale of $51 a day for our 11 day cruise in October. It is now $41 per day! A savings of $259.60.
  3. Thank you, I did book the Le Saint Sulpice Hotel but I'll look at the Hotel William Gray and see what that is like.
  4. We went on a Princess cruise a few years ago that went to Bermuda first and than New England/Canada. Perhaps they will change it to Bermuda and New England.
  5. Thank you for posting. Our October cruise went from $55 to $51 per day. Last year I got $47 a day but I guess that is rare now.
  6. Do they have chai latte and more expensive teas here or is it only coffee?
  7. We are booked on Empress of Seas Montreal to Montreal. I live in rural PA and it is about a 5 1/2 hour drive to Montreal. We are leaving two days early and will drive back when we get back to Montreal. Might be worth looking into something like this. When we did the cruise you are referring to Boston to Montreal we flew to Boston and then rented a car when we were int Montreal and dropped it off at airport where we left our car. There is a higher fee for driving a car one way from Canada to US but it was worth it for us since we had 2 kids with us at that time.
  8. I booked 9146 based on Twangster review. He said anything under the spa area would be the quietest rooms.
  9. I have a question, we are going on the Empress of the Seas leaving and returning to Montreal but at different piers. If I do the parking at the pier does the port have a shuttle bus to get you from the T1 pier to the parking area, they appear to be far apart on google maps. Leaving from T3 back to T1. (October 5) I am thinking of booking the Hotel Nelligan or the Le Saint Sulpice Hotel. We like to stay in small boutique style hotels and these both look nice on line. Anyone have any input on these hotels or a suggestion of another small boutique style hotel in the Old Port area? We are only staying 2 nights and it is an anniversary trip so i don't mind spending a bit more. Planning on enjoying the scenery, dining and night life. We have been to Canada many times and love returning.
  10. Bring the champagne in your carry on. I have never had a problem with it in my carry on. If you want to be extra cautious get a Jetbag. Which is essentially a sealed diaper for the bottle in case it breaks or pops it cork. You can buy a very nice bottle for about half the price the ship charges.
  11. We went to Jamie's Italian, a great way to start the cruise. It was very quiet in there, no crowds and by the time your relaxing lunch is over the rooms are opened.
  12. It is much quicker to get out if you pay in cash. When we went they had two lines at kiosks one for cash and one for credit cards we didn't even have to wait to pay and the line for credit cards was about 10 people long.
  13. We also go to Jamie Oliver's you can sit in the restaurant and watch the crowds of people stream by while you have a nice relaxing lunch. Great way to start a vacation for only $25 each if you book prior to cruise on cruise planner. By the time you are finished eating the rooms are open.
  14. I just put together and did an Anthem of the Seas bar crawl. Because they are so many bars we had a pre crawl on sailaway which consisted of all the upper bars: North Star Bar, Sky Bar, Pool Bar and Sunshine Bar in Solarium. Then on the first sea day we did the rest in the afternoon. We didn't bother with the windjammer bars. I had 20 people from cruise critic sign up for it and 12 actually showed up.
  15. Thank you for the tip on the restaurant The Bicycle Thief in Halifax, we just returned from our Canada/New England cruise on Athem and stopped there for a delicious lunch. Our server, Mary, I think was the best waitress we have ever had the pleasure of meeting. Thanks again for your excellent review.
