  1. Unfortunately the solo rate is usually the same as a double . However, I still like to cruise and enjoy having a room to myself. Also, the freedom of doing what I like - meals and excursions. Tried with a group of three others - two rooms but didn't really enjoy the cruise. Didn't like the "group thing".
  2. I prefer cruising solo - more freedom to do what you want and when . Also I like the closet and bathroom to myself. I've never had less than 200% solo supplement . Never cruise with someone who is "iffy" about cruising. They would make your life miserable!
  3. I feel with cruises within the last two years or so the dining time is less than that. In fact some ships have adopted the route of serving the appetizer and salad together and seem to speed up the service of all courses. With having to order dessert at the same time as the rest of items I've noticed dessert may arrive while one or more are still on main.
  4. I've always had to pay double for solo but think you have the whole closet and bathroom to yourself! Presently solo gets double points. Pricing studio rooms I find sometimes they are as expensive as a single - smaller and no double points.
  5. I've stayed at the Doubletree and another (can"t think of name) - took hotel shuttle to airport and then shuttle (booked ahead) from airport to pier and from pier back to airport. Worked well.
  6. Who opens the ports in Hawaii - Federal or State gov"t?
  7. Any crystal ball idea when it might be extended beyond Sept 1. I cruise Sept 6.
  8. I hate a mask for even a short period - can't imagine taking a vacation in one. Anyone planned for eating and drinking aspect?
  9. Payment for on board purchases is not part of the original cruise cost so they are refunded in form that you paid for them.
  10. I;m well over 70 and in good health. Someone mentioned not seeing many cruisers over 70 - maybe because we don't fit the profile of "old" that they have in their mind. Those with walkers and riding cars often are not "seniors".
  11. I agree. I don't want a FCC. I may cruise later but the "fall out" over and be able to access what the "new" experience may be.
