  1. I don't think so. The left lane goes into a parking lot for vehicles picking up folks who just got off the ship. The luggage drop off lane is pretty quick, there are a lot of porters/longshoremen on hand. We were through that lane and into the parking garage in about ten minutes.
  2. Another good tip that JLMoran forgot to mention, STAY IN THE RIGHT LANE as you start to approach the terminal. It will be very tempting to try and pull into the left lane and pass everyone. All that will do us get you a butt chewing by the grumpy traffic control folks. Also, be sure to have your luggage tagged with the RC luggage tags and ready in the trunk for the long shoremen. Yes, they appreciate tips, up to you how much. The whole process is very well coordinated and smooth. Have a great cruise!
  3. You are welcome. Enjoy your cruise and hopefully no one will have to call you on board the ship.
  4. I normally call the RC customer support folks and get the phone number of the ship we will be on and give that number to my family in the event of an emergency.
  5. Hey Fairley, Check this link out, pretty good review of Portside BBQ and how they do it on board. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wk28HpRh0oI&feature=share&fbclid=IwAR0Tqa7RkO_W6RjaNKluRZ2v0K-KOEpVVxlU8nzloc4Eu6IF3pHSmpGcjfU Enjoy!
  6. Interesting, wonder if this is specific to the Adventure OTS or if the Captain is just cranky? I've read other "formal night" posts in which the OP has mentioned "wear your best" on formal night. Or, do you suppose they heard YOU were going to be on board Mike and are just screwing with you?
  7. Just curious, what is your interest in Jost?
  8. Don't forget to put the "do not disturb" sign outside of your cabin door. If not, your cabin attendant may think you're out of the cabin and barge in on you. 😯
  9. Spring Break or Winter Thaw?
  10. Just remember Matt, you're only as old as you feel and when you can't feel anymore.....then you're old!
  11. I've been there. VERY depressing. May want to consider going before or after depending on how you think it will have an effect on you. Do you want to be bummed out before the cruise or after? If you go before the cruise you will have the cruise to help you get over it. After the cruise, a ride home and back to work.....not so consoling IMHO.
  12. We will be doing the Alaskan southern cruise on the Radiance this August. Trying to catch a decent flight home from Vancouver at the end of the cruise on 8/21 is turning into MI. Thinking about staying overnight on the 21st and catching an early morning flight on the 22nd. Any good hotel recommendations and sights to see? Thanks!
  13. Hello Jamie, Welcome aboard! Feel free to ask away with any questions you may have. I personally, have visited Le Spezia many times years ago when I was stationed in Germany. My father was born in Le Spezia, would fly over to visit us and off we would go by train. At that time, late 80's early 90's, the Italian trains were subject to unannounced/unplanned union strikes. So much for the schedule! Not sure how it is now, but you do have some time to research the trains. If it were me, I would pay the Euros and go with the Royal Excursion. How long will the ship be in Le Spezia? We have been on the Allure four times now, love that ship! She's big and there is always something to do on board. Enjoy!
