  1. We laminated original Covid vaccine cards and never have had an issue.
  2. Same here for four upcoming cruises. Some prices (labeled "sale") are actually up.
  3. One other thought: if you have on board credit from your travel agent, RCL stock ownership, an RCL promotion, or other source: it is not always wise to prepay gratuities, as OBC can be used toward grats.
  4. Opinion: we have had issues with connecting rooms - including on a lengthy crossing. We avoid at all costs.

  6. What are the transfer options from LAX to the Port (and back)? Best options? Will be overnighting night prior to cruise at airport-area hotel.
  7. Answer to question: Halifax HOHO is a full-size, double decker bus. Go to cruise planner for description. Additionally, search Google for Halifax Hop On bus. Their web site fully describes the route (13 stops, 90 minutes) plus features a route map.
  8. We have happily ridden the Halifax Hop-On Hop-Off bus. The beauty of any HOHO bus is that it gives you an overview, or "lay of the land". Depending on time available, our normal approach to any HOHO bus is to ride around a complete loop while watching and listening to the commentary. On a second time around, we are able to get off at stops of our choice, and able to judge our time. Plus, we are able to take photos throughout the city. As mentioned above by RCIfan1912, Halifax is full of great sights and attractions!
  9. Plus stores are available in ports - and some sundries available on the ship
  10. Several off-site lots are available at various prices at the Tampa Port, starting at $6.99 daily. Parkway Parking is very reputable, with good van service, and shows $8.99 daily. You can search Tampa Port Parking on the web for alternatives. We have parked at several lots in Tampa (including the $15 city lots) and have not been disappointed.
  11. We sailed Empress about four weeks prior to Cuba's closure...We will go back when/if we can.
  12. Thank you to Allie Hubers for today's ArriveCAN article. Learned more in under ten minutes than from all prior sources - important stuff, as we depart in 17 days for an Alaska cruise and tour. Checking this Blog has been very helpful!
  13. Our last trip on the Jewel was impressive - beautiful dining room, great service, and attentive staff throughout. Shows good, but smaller or individual performers. Food, also, was top notch. If you can enjoy a smaller ship, smaller crowds, and somewhat less activities you may well enjoy the Jewel.
  14. Sometimes lockers are available for a very nominal fee
  15. We have had the same experience, talking to crew. Caring about people is what is all about. We have stayed in touch with several crew members, via e-mail, over many years. To paraphrase Kristen's earlier comments: getting to know folks is a good experience for everyone.
