  1. Broke my wrist a few years ago four days before we were leaving on our cruise. Had insurance and was fully refunded.
  2. I never see that for some reason. But I clicked on the left where your name is and tried messaging you and it won't take my message ; (
  3. Don't see the link Mura. Any other way of sending or just the link itself? Thanks again.
  4. Thanks so much. Always enjoy reading your posts on Cruise Critic. Should I put my email address on here?
  5. Mura, If you still have that article, I could use it. BTW, we were on the Riviera last year in the Caribbean. My husband is in a wheelchair and we were in a penthouse suite so it worked perfectly for us. He's able to walk a few steps but not very far at all. I don't remember any instances where we had any trouble on the ship itself. That was our first trip with the wheelchair, so he chose not to get off at any ports. Did the same thing on our Princess cruise this year. I'm hoping, as he gets used to using the wheelchair, he's start venturing off except for tendered ports.
  6. We were on the Panama Canal cruise too. Had a great time. We were in a mini suite so didn't have trouble with the shower as it was in the tub and had plenty of room. May I add that the Internet connection was the best we've ever had on a ship. Even worked great when we were on our balcony. Was our first cruise on Princess.
  7. We had a butler last year on the Riviera. Could've done without him as we really never asked for anything except breakfast in our room. While it was nice, we usually like to have it on our balcony but he said the table was too small and never suggested anything else so we ate it on the table in the room. The only other thing I asked for, which I had read would be available, is for a laptop or Ipad to use while we were on board. He said there weren't any. He did bring our little canapes every night before dinner. In any case, we gave him $40 extra as we would've tipped for our breakfast room service anyway.
  8. We originally wanted Club Class but there weren't any left when we booked. Other than the seating perk and location of the stateroom I'm not really sure what the benefits are. We were in anytime dining and were seated quickly at all times. The ship is not huge so wherever your stateroom is, it's not a long, long walk to either end IMO. So why spend the extra money on Club Class? I thought the condition of the ship was good. Maybe those who've taken cruises on a newer, glitzy ship may find the Coral to be old but we were very happy. I wouldn't let that deter you at all. Didn't go to any shows so can't tell you about them. We're on a cruise mainly to relax and not to be entertained, but there's something going on somewhere every night. Plenty of places to sit and read in and out. The ship never felt crowded at all. Formal nights you see people in full dress and others in casual but more dressy. So whatever you like to wear is fine. My husband wore a button down shirt and dark dockers. I wore black pants and a little dressier top. The service is great and most of the time the staff is very helpful. Hope that helps. Anything else, let me know.
  9. Just got off of the Coral this morning from a 15 day Panama Canal cruise. We were in a mini suite and liked it a lot. Funny to read other peoples opinions. Guess with everything in life some people like, others dislike. That's what makes horse races. This was our first cruise on Princess and like smaller ships like the Coral. I can answer other questions if you have any.
  10. On the cruise now. I find the high setting on the blow drier really good.

    Thank you all. Was just wondering as far as eggs, pancakes and other hot dishes. I was told (I think) that mini suites and up get more hot selections. Guess I was wrong.

    How do I search for room service menus on here? We'll be in a mini suite and would like to know what the breakfast room service selection would be. TIA
  13. Yes, have heard all sorts of stories. This will be our first time on a cruise with a wheelchair and concerned. We had a walker stolen at a restaurant one night. It was a fairly new, sturdy one and the one left was an old rickety one that we couldn't use. Went out the next day and bought a new one. Have ID on the wheelchair and will put some other things on to identify it or will have it put next to us folded as you suggested. Thanks.
  14. Have read that some people have problems in the dining rooms of ships having their wheelchairs stolen. What do you do in that case?
  15. Thanks for all the responses. If we changed to early or late dining, is it that much better and can you always get a table for two?
  16. I know this topic has been discussed ad nauseam but since this is our first Princess (Coral) cruise is there a time, early or late, that's better as far as a wait? My husband's in a wheelchair and not sure about where they'd even be seating us. TIA

    Will be on our first Princess (Coral) cruise going through the Panama Canal in the Fall. Haven't seen anything about the movies they show. Is there one every evening? Different ones? Current ones? I've read that they show them the following night on the TV's in the staterooms as well. Do they provide a list of movies for the cruise or is it just in the cruise paper you receive every night? Thanks in advance.

  19. I broke my wrist four days before we were to go on a Caribbean cruise last year. Needed surgery but couldn't have it until about 10 days later. We cancelled the cruise ; ( Had a soft cast on. I'm right handed and my broken wrist was my left one. Thinking of everything I had to do before and on the cruise itself would've been daunting to me as my husband is handicapped and can't help much. But, if the doctor said you can go and you feel like you can handle it, go and have the best time!
  20. What did you pay for the Internet? I just need to check emails every day. Will be on the Panama Canal cruise in November on the Coral.
  21. Maybe they can have the captain marry them when they get back on the ship ; )
  22. Have been following your cruise since day one and always looked forward to Bob's posts. Wishing him a full and speedy recovery.
  23. Found what I was looking for.
