  1. Promptly and personally. We got a telephone call with the answer.
  2. We are Hilton Honers with beaucoup points. Checked to see if we could book a day room in Buenes Aires cause our flight misses the cutoff by 20 min. Yes we can for $326. Won’t take points. Sad.
  3. Interesting. We have used Tours by Locals several times and the very best one of all was Mumbai.
  4. You are right about the beauty of the Santa Croce. The first time we were in Florence my DH had that visit at the top of our to do list. When I asked why, he said that as a Catholic scientist, he had to go and apologize to Galileo.
  5. We have sailed into Bergen twice and both times the weather was spectacular! The locals were absolutely giddy both times, an absolute carnival atmosphere.
  6. Hmm. Wonder why they have never been stolen from the other lines. Having only cruised on Princess one time in our 37 cruises, I cannot comment on the amount of thievery that takes place on their ships but, a search on the CC boards will turn up many comments on the remarkable R— R——- products.
  7. Have done that frequently. Especially when staying in a hotel pre-cruise. got to love those wonderful plastic flasks.
  8. I also use the laundry service about every other day. i put it on the bed before leaving to go to dinner. It is pretty much always back the next afternoon.
  9. Then, of course, there is Viking--lets you bring on whatever you want.
  10. I guess I don"t but, what I have ordered is always sitting beside the ice bucket when we walk in.
  11. Hmm. Wonder why they have never been stolen from the other lines.
  12. Went on our first Princess cruise in June. Was surprised to discover that the bottles were so small and that they would not be in the cabin on arrival. Every other line has a a full liter waiting in the cabin on arrival. I assume that Princess is counting on you running out quickly and then buying from the bars.
  13. Thanks. We love the DV1 cabins facing aft. Glad to hear closet space is good.
  14. Only been on the Orion. What about the Jupiter? Drawers in closet?
  15. Sorry guys, I meant to type IAD. Fingers slipped I guess. Thanks for the help.
  16. In Nov. we will be flying on Viking air booked tickets, DUl to Munich to Barcelona. Only have 70 min. Layover in Munich. Will this be enough time. Worried about immigration and international to domestic terminals. Flying in on United and then switch to Lufthansa. This really has me stressed.
  17. What tour are you doing. Our problem is we spent 3 days in BA a few years ago and we saw all the regular tourist spots. We love Tours by Locals by the way.
  18. Okay, we are studying this possibility, upgrading to PV. Apparently our cruise is not selling out. So, do we want to keep our aft facing DV1 or switch to PV and be able to pass each other at the end of the bed. DH says whatever I want. That is why he is my darling. BTW, he does not drink spirits but I do. What to do???
  19. Had this problem last Sept. in Asia- on the Mumbai to Bangkok segment. Our flight was at 10pm. Our transfer was at 4pm. We were allowed to spend the day in any public place. on the ship. Still got to the airport way before check in desk opened so we could not use the Delta lounge. a very boring day. Will be in the same boat in Dec. when we finish the Barcelona to Bueneos Aries cruise. Flight is at 10pm again. Not sure what we are going to do this time.
  20. Need to double check everything!! Yesterday we made the final payment on a river cruise and added on the trip mate insurance. When I printed out our guest statement, I saw that we had been charged twice. Called the sales rep who said it must have been a systems error. Huh?? Money was refunded but still disconcerting.
  21. Just booked our 2nd DV1--reason, we can get an aft facing cabin which is our favorite.
  22. The email came from Viking. No special list that I know of. Maybe because we took our first Ocean cruise in Nov. or maybe the trip is not filling up.
  23. This is interesting. We got an offer in May for the November sailing on the Jupiter, Barcelona to Bueneus Aries, for a DV1 cabin for the price of a veranda plus free air. We jumped on it and were given a payment in full due date of June 30. Then last week we got an email stating that the payment date had been extended to July 9. Not sure why.
