  2. We used Greeking Me...absolutely would recommend them in a heartbeat.
  3. Should have known...read a @twangster blog, prepare to open wallet for a new cruise to try! Thanks for the great report, as always!

  5. Ovation out of Seattle June 18, 2021! Working really hard to sell the wife on a Christmas-time cruise this year 🤞
  6. I was in La Spezia last May (on MSC) and agree that the walk to the train station is not too difficult. My wife and I were off the ship as soon as we could, and even got to the Cinque Terre ticket office at the train station before it opened. The trains are easy enough, but there were a few delays, so take that into account and don't cut it too close. We only went to 3 of the villages so we could spend more time in each and not feel rushed. One important note: if you plan to do any hiking, be sure to wear closed toe shoes...you can be fined for wearing sandals (even hiking sandals) on the trails. In the villages you are fine with whatever, but not on the trails between them. My wife and I didn't know this until we got to the train station (failure of planning/research), but it didn't impact our plans terribly. It is gorgeous there, and I wish I could go back today!
  7. Took a greek isles cruise on Rhapsody last year, and enjoyed her. The crew was unfailingly fantastic and I really liked the ship. Not the biggest or newest, but a good ship none the less
  8. Made our decision and now I can add Ovation in June '21 to my signature block!
  9. @AshleyDillo I’ve been to Alaska, but wife hasn’t. We’ve been on Rhapsody before, so smaller ship isn’t a big deal. Pricing is pretty similar for them all (around $300-400 difference one way or another). Just can’t decide, but anxious to get one on the books!
  10. Ovation, Radiance, or Serenade? That is the questions...just my wife and I on our 20th anniversary. Thoughts?
  11. Arrrg! Every time I try to look at Ovation prices, it kicks me back to the main search page!
  12. In my experience, I saw a few tuxes, but mostly suits on the formal nights on my Greek cruise last year. Most other dinners were mainly slacks and open collar shirts.
  13. Dying for them to be released! I tried (and failed) to talk my wife into a cruise for next Thanksgiving over the weekend, but we are definitely going to Alaska for our 20th anniversary in 2021. I need something to plan!!!
