  1. No worries, and of course that makes sense. As this is a global matter and folks are planning travels from place to place all over the planet, it seemed like it definitely could not hurt to get it in front of more eyeballs. The more people who have access to the information, the more value the information has. If no one knows where it is or even that we have it, then it's not useful. It's not an exciting topic, travel insurance, I grant you, but it is important. In a moment like we are experiencing now, it's helpful to give everyone easy access to information. And that's all it's meant to be, information, optional. Nothing more than that. ๐Ÿ™‚ โ˜ฎ๏ธ
  2. Hello Cruise Critic Community: We are running a Q & A with Insure My Trip, a travel insurance comparison company. The topic is active, please post your questions in the topic linked here for ease of navigation. The focus of the topic is of course coronavirus, now known as COVID-19, and other questions will be answered, though it's possible those questions could be in the queue longer than COVID-19 policy questions. We appreciate your patience and understanding and above all, hope you'll find the information helpful going forward. Above all, we hope you are well and safe. Thank you. Peace, Colleen/Bonjour
  3. Hi hammo! Everyone here is kind of on island time already ๐Ÿ˜‰ Also, car hire isn't that common on these port visits, but that said, it does happen though more often in Tahiti and Fiji (think Suva). You are stopping in some amazing places (I'm a bit envious!) and so while it's surely possible, these are the reasons it might requite a bit more waiting to get helpful answers. Not as many cruisers calling in these ports, fewer renting cars. In Fiji I just walked places. I can drive anywhere/anytime in New York City, my hometown which intimidates a LOT of people, but I'm less keen on driving places overseas! Nevertheless, I have faith in our amazing community, we have the best in the world, and that's not just me being biasedโ€“which I surely am, it's verified. In the meantime, search back through our topics, you may just find what you need! I hope when you return from your wonderful journey, you'll be back and let us know how it went. ๐Ÿ™‚

  8. Use Google! It's the best starting point to help you find what you are hoping to find. How to start? Go to google.com and type in exactly what you wrote here: "resorts in mediterranean sea for port visits" (omit the quotation marks) You'll probably have a lot of results, and spoiler alert, the ones that are on the first page (scroll down to the bottom to see the number of pages you have for results, but no, you needn't read them all!) tend to be the ones that A) paid to land on page one or B) know how to promote themselves C) combination of A & B. That might or might not mean they are right for you but it can be a good place to start to get ideas for what is out there. A better way to narrow it down is to add in one of the port calls into your search and do each port individually, this way you won't have to search through as many results. So for example, better to do a search for: resorts in St Tropez for port call, or, resorts in Corfu....etc. You get the idea. If you haven't already, look through our message boards. There are plenty of topics here (and on other boards) where people discuss how/when they found ways to visit a beach or go kayaking, snorkeling, etc. It all depends upon what you wish to do. Hope this helps. There's also something to be said for spontaneity; you can book things when you come into port (avoiding costly ship excursions) or go DIY. But finding out what's available before you arrive is definitely good planning. Have fun planning!

  12. Everyone can read five free New York Times articles per month. If one has not yet reached their limit of five free, you should be able to click on to the article and read it without being a subscriber. If you're at the limit and blocked by the paywall, your library card will usually grant access the library's subscription, if not online, certainly at their local branch. Some libraries (schools and public) may not subscribe to every papers, but many do!! Hope this helps.
  13. From The New York Times today regarding the Diamond Princess and some other cruise news: https://www.nytimes.com/2020/02/06/world/asia/coronavirus-cruise-ship.html
  14. SCMP >>>> South China Morning Post, in case anyone wasn't familiar with the acronym. My sister works for NASA and when she starts speaking in letters (I know a few of them!) I usually have to remind her I don't speak NASA. Especially when other NASA people are in the room ๐Ÿ˜‰ I tend to the do the same thing when it comes to finance which I far less exciting than Space. Or travel. Thanks for the points of reference @mking8288. We recommend the Cruise News board for conversations stemming from news of the day. Also helpful may be Cruise Travel/Insurance for anyone who may have questions related to their policies. We want you to be able to communicate as always, but we also want everyone to be able to find information you need right now. As this matter has reached global proportions, we believe the more organized we are, the better we can assist you. Safe travels to everyone and thank you! ๐Ÿ™‚
