  1. FYI - Just checked the Memorial Day "sale" for tour prices. We have cancelled and re-booked twice, but this time every sale price was higher than paid for tours on the October Snowbird Migration cruise. Also seems to be true for December cruise.
  2. Appreciate a great tutorial. Would add availability of "City Pass" in much of Europe.
  3. Interesting thought - the Empress is a great "little" ship after updates with terrific personnel. Maybe the ABC Islands?
  4. Points relatively easy to redeem, but be aware that the "best" value is the three or four day cruise - up to $1000 value for 50,000 points, or a 'worth' of two cents per point. The other awards are worth one cent per point, and at a point per dollar, this is pretty low for a credit card. Note, though, that points double on RCL purchases.
  5. Think not, but you still can use the three drinks nightly (per person) in the various lounges. Comment: nice little ship! Great crew!!
  6. Or the "Leaf Peeping" cruise Oct. 7 that spends the first two nights in Quebec City
  7. Very interesting story about Carnival's Pinnacle project. Still comes down to some of Carnival's shortcomings today, including no live music for shows. Carnival occasionally offers some great intineraries - and Cunard certainly does a much better job - at a larger price.
  8. Train rides that come to mind: the Southern most in Ushiaia, Argentina, into a national park, with train tracks that were built by convicts to transport convicts. Also as an add-on, the train ride that goes to Machu Picchu from Cusco. The Rocky Mountaineer and an Alaska cruise, although pricey, is a great combination. Oslo-Bergen train that connects with cruises in Norway.
  9. Great photo and memory! When you look, lots of train rides available on cruises around the world.
  10. Tried multiple times to join e-mail, with no success. Royal Caribbean may have the worst IT department in the entire cruise industry. We, too, get Celebrity notifications.
  11. Just finished a Cyber Monday session, and RCL's famous IT department made the time an ordeal - BUT - we saved over $200 on shore excursions for an upcoming cruise versus quoted prices!
  12. Discounts often arise. Not too much fills up unless the ship is on an itinerary that is rarely used or where the infrastructure is lacking. Black Friday may be great, and you can always cancel and re-book.
  13. ,No purse, no jewelry, no expensive watch, no big diamond rings - more likely to have no trouble on shore.
