  1. Escargot! And any rich chocolate desserts. Yum
  2. A special note if you drink coffee: There is the International Café which it small and next to the smoky casino; however, we discovered that there is also an espresso bar in the Horizon Café Buffet area. So, we always would get our coffee and hot cocoa drinks there. And the quality was better and a much friendlier staff.
  3. Really? I guess I do not know how to count... hmmm... 7 hours versus 3 hours. I am used to the short and long flights in the USA as I said before. PDX to LAX is 2. 5 hours and guess what??? We are treated the same as when flying to Hawaii or Miami or on a return trip which is about 6 hours. This is a direct comparison with our experience. Apparently, we self educated in Europe. And guess what? There is a big difference! BOTH were on BA. People can only come to conclusions based on their experience and research. So glad that you pointed out that there is a "big difference between long and short hauls flights".But, you are WRONG when it comes to domestic.
  4. Wowzz- I only thought it was unusual because we were "International Virgins" (except for driving to Mexico and Canada). This was our first ever trip to Europe. We left SeaTac and changed flights at Heathrow for Rome. The first leg of the trip was a very pleasant surprise in economy. Therefore, that is why we were so surprised at the contrast on the second flight. Very different vibe and service.
  5. Thank you! We also would prefer to not go in the Summer, but it is because of the Tattoo.
  6. "We have Deluxe balcony booked on August 2020 Med cruise on Enchanted. I booked directly on Princess site with no issues." It is the PREMIUM Deluxe Balconies that are the issue; not the Deluxe Balconies.
  7. We are Platinum and yes there was. (Once the staff figures out what they are doing) This was the longest and craziest embarkation. But the Regal was worth it.
  8. Sometimes odd things happen. The Captain makes decisions for everyone's safety. We missed a port last October on a Celebrity ship because a crew member threw himself overboard and the Captain was instructed to turn around and join the other ships for a search. We felt so bad for the entire crew and the crew person himself and his family.
  9. Dear john_galt: Love your screen name!!! We have a license plate holder on the front of our truck that says "What Would John Galt Do?" 😉
  10. Seriously? Yes Colo Cruiser. As Wishing on a Star also said. And as my Mom used to say; "That is what makes horse racing!" Something for everyone. Choices are good. Perspectives and experiences are individual and personal.
  11. This was on the Citibank Card website: So, now it is in writing. "Important changes are coming to some of your Card Benefits. The following is a summary of changes that are being made to your card benefits. Effective September 22, 2019, Trip Cancellation & Interruption Protection and Citi® Price Rewind will be discontinued and will no longer be provided for purchases made on or after that date. Coverage for purchases made before that date will continue to be available, and you may continue to file for benefits in accordance with the current benefit terms. We are making these changes so that we can continue providing the key benefits that our customers use and value most at no additional cost. This change requires no action on your part. See FAQs under Card Benefits for answers to Frequently Asked Questions regarding these changes. As a cardmember, you will continue to receive a range of other card benefits including FICO® Credit Score, Citi® Identity Theft Solutions, and Citi Entertainment."
  12. I understand where your DH is coming from; however, we were on the Coral Princess for a PC full transit and then on the Regal for an East Coast cruise. WE LOVE THE REGAL!!! Personally, we felt the Coral was crowded and the Regal was so nice and open. The Regal is now our favorite ship. We did not care for the design of the Coral. But many do. As has been mentioned above, the larger Princess ships are not what Royal Caribbean offers. We do not want a SeaWorld, wall climbing or ice skating rink on our ship. Now, THOSE are mega ships!
  13. Thank you for your input. Medjet offers a Domestic policy and also a Domestic & International policy. I realize that this is not medical or travel insurance. I could not find much on Global Rescue but Medjet seems to be mentioned many times on this forum. Since we also travel in our RV I thought the Domestic/ International policy would be useful too. Our medical is good worldwide but has a limit... so lots to think about.
  14. We had the less expensive "Classic" beverage package on the Celebrity Reflection. Only TWO of their white wines were possible. On the Regal, that was a much better situation and the drinks on Princess cost the same as when we go out.
  15. Thanks Marilyn. I also saw your comment on my other question. I appreciate the info. We will be on the Regal.
