  1. Hello All, Can anyone who has been on a cruise to Antarctica comment on the photo package and number of photos taken on deck? I am asking here as the Antarctica board doesn’t get many replies and most of them are from people who take the cruises to Antarctica with landings. We will be on the Coral Princess in January and are trying to figure out if the photo package is worthwhile. Many thanks!
  2. I am wondering if anyone who has cruised to Antarctica on Princess knows which days the Laundry Rooms are open for use. I wasn’t sure if they would be closed for some of the days due to cruising in Antarctica. I have posted this on the Antarctica board and am still waiting for a reply so I thought I try here. Thank you to all who can offer insight as I plan ahead for packing.

  4. Thank you very much for your help. 😊
  5. Hello All, We are will be here on a cruise in Late July (I know it will be so hot and crowded but that is when our scheduled allowed a trip this year so we are justing going to enjoy it!) and I am looking for suggestions on where to buy pearls. I have cruised here before but not paid enough attention, but this time would like to buy some. I am interested in necklaces, earrings, and bracelets. I also love cameos. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you all!
  6. Taxis are lined up within a very short walking distance when you disembark. Use a taxi for ease of travel and also to maximize your time in Athens.
  7. You can certainly make an 11:30 tour. When we did it last year, we walked off the ship at 7:00 am and took a taxi to the Athens Hilton. By 11:30 we had walked from the Hilton, passed the Temple of Olympian Zeus and were on the Acropolis. I hope you have a wonderful time. Athens is one of my favorite places.
  8. Thank you so very much. This will be great! Is it easy to take the bus? What would you recommend? Thank you again for your help. 🙂
  9. We will be in Mykonos in July. I know it will be so crowded but that's when I worked for us to go this year. Is there a beach easy to access right there in the main town? We are going to Delos and when we return we hoped to have the chance to just walk along a beach. Thank you in advance for any suggestions anyone has regarding the beach or anything else in the main town.
  10. Hello All, We are trying to decide which side of the ship to reserve a state room on for a cruise to Antarctica (Buenos Aires to Santiago.) If anyone has any suggestions on which side of the ship and which deck is best on this particular cruise, I would greatly appreciate it. I am asking because this summer we did the Land of the Midnight Sun cruise in Norway and I wish we had reserved our balcony on the starboard rather than port side. Now we will know for next time. Any other suggestions for this trip would also be very welcome. Thank you!
  11. Thank you crystalspin for your help. We will look at those excursions.

  13. Thank you all for your help and thoughtful replies. We will keep our cruise as is currently scheduled in May. I love September in the Med but my husband works at a university and simply can't be on vacation in September! For those of you thinking of cruising the Med in the Fall, I think it is a great idea. In 2016, I went with my daughter from Rome to Athens from September 10 to 17. The crowds in Rome were smaller than when we had been there during the summer and the weather was glorious every single day. Last year we went on a 10 day cruise from Rome to Barcelona departing October 7 and had beautiful, warm weather and non-crowded ports. The only drawback then is that it is later in the year and so there is less daylight. The only time I wore a jacket on both of those trips was on the plane on the way there and back. If anyone has any questions I can answer, I am happy to return the favor. Thank you all again.:)
