  1. Thank you notamermaid for the link and the information regarding the Felicity. Felicity was a relatively new ship when we sailed on it. Our cruise at that time was strictly Rhine River- Amsterdam to Basel. We did have a stop in Koblenz and thought it a lovely town but they were upgrading much of it for a pending flower show the next year. It was difficult to navigate streets. At the time we thought about a cruise on the Moselle. We are looking forward to another cruise with Avalon and will check to see what they may offer on the Moselle. Thanks again!
  2. We are thinking about an Oct 2021 river cruise from Remich to Nuremburg on an Avalon River boat. We did an Avalon cruise 10 years ago so I imagine a lot has changed. We had a tremendous time on the Felicity and see that ship is long gone. e were just wondering how a cruise on the Main compares to the Rhine. Has anybody here done this cruise? Could use some help on whether it's a winner.
  3. I totally agree with DaveOKC. Every HAL cruise we booked with our PCC I felt the we got the best cabin at the best price. Usually if there was a 'sale' going on (ie drink package, OBC and or gratuities) we would opt out and get a much, much better cabin price. And he knew what we wanted were usually able to book a cabin in an area of the ship we preferred. We haven't looked in to cruising quite yet so hopefully that PCC is still with the company when we start searching again.
  4. Thanks Prescottbob! That was a well spend 1/2 watching that clip. We probably wouldn't have been able to afford a trip on the QE back then but we are so happy with the memories we've had on HAL on other lines. I hope we will soon be able to create new cruising memories. Thanks again!
  5. Don't know if you saw this but this is a bit of sunshine for cruising IMO. https://www.fool.com/investing/2020/05/11/why-carnivals-bookings-jumped-600-and-what-analyst.aspx
  6. When the cruise industry starts up again be prepared to pay much more for your cabin. Alas, our cruising days may be over.
  7. I think electronic muster drills is a great idea except cruisers should be obligated to visit their lifeboat stations on embarkation day. Maybe somehow check in when they get there.
  8. Well Father, it's a very risky investment right now. Hopefully a covid 19 vaccine will be developed soon. warmer weather will lessen the number of new covid 19 cases and a cure for those suffering from the affects of the illness will be found. Those factors will determine if and when CCL is a good stock to own. Best wishes
  9. I wouldn't be too anxious about booking a cruise until after a vaccine is developed and people are thoroughly inoculated. When they start will probably be a different time frame, probably much earlier. We are more concerned about a 'safe' carefree cruise. Safe travels if you go in May.
  10. Ick! Hope you didn't bring any new pets home. Don't want to panic you but I would now check the mattresses at home and also your luggage. Don't know if bed bugs or hair lice on grand kids is worse.
  11. Not saying it couldn't be the O but did you stay in a hotel/motel before or after your cruise? We've always found the beds on HAL to be very clean and first thing we do when on board or in a hotel is check the bedding for bed bugs
  12. We are so grateful that our cruise on the NA ended on 2/22/20 It seems like the corona virus erupted shortly there after We've discussed future cruises but I don't think we will do another cruise until a reliable vaccine is available This illness is really scary and being prone to lung issues we don't want to chance it We look forward to cruising again someday, til then good luck to all who have current plans
  13. Agreed! Darn good pea soup and they have some pretty fantastic pastries too. They have one pastry that sort of looks like an éclair that was heavenly. Love the Dutch Café
  14. Thanks rkacruiser. That sounds easy-peasy! If it's changed any we will post back!
