  1. Yes--we are on the 1 Feb cruise as well and rethinking how we are getting there--we may do a road trip from MD visiting friends along the way and then park near the airport and uber into the port.
  2. So thrilled to see these pics. Best wishes to Bob and Betsy--so glad we met,even if it was just briefly on the Rome leg. There is a time for every purpose under heaven...today love abounds, so happy for you both.
  3. We used the 7 bottle wine package on Insignia this past June. As already stated, the sommelier will store your bottle till the next meal you would like to have. We never tried taking them to our cabin, but don't know why that wouldn't be allowed. We did try to get someone to retrieve it outside of meals (at the lounge, I think) and we were told it was not possible. I have mixed feelings about the package. Although we did drink our 7 bottles during the course of the 16 day cruise, we had to push it because we didn't always want wine with lunch (or we were usually not on board). Also when eating at Terrace Cafe it was sometimes hard to find the sommelier and they were always busy so the wine didn't always show up when we wanted it eg we were almost done with our meal! This was not an issue in the Grand Dining room or speciality restaurants, but we like the Terrace Cafe and eat there often. I doubt we will use it again though it did get me to try some different wines. The price per bottle with gratuity included (47.00) is cheaper then I believe any bottle you can buy outside of the package...i may have the list somewhere. If I find it I will take a pic of it....
  4. Wow! Such fantastic news! Praising God for answered prayer. I’ve been following this thread since Jan and boarded in Rome, meeting Bob and Betsy the first night. As we talked about the ATW cruise he said, “ the best thing was meeting my girlfriend, Betsy!” So thrilled with this news. Congrats and May God bless you both for years to come!
  5. I don’t do spicy and Red Ginger has plenty of non-spicy dishes. It was our fav specialty restaurant on riviera.
  6. Here is the link for the rollcall https://boards.cruisecritic.com/topic/2625391-insignia-roll-call-June-4-2019
  7. Hi Merle, we are indeed neighbors! Cruise critic can be confusing and not always user friendly. But it is free and can be helpful. First thing is to go to my rollcall post. It is not obvious because there are some software glitches. But go to roll call Oceania insignia and then you will notice there is no rollcall for June 4-19. Then click the link where it says “can’t find your Rollcall?” If you then search through the threads you will find the one I started. Insignia June 4, 2019. That is where we should be having excursion discussions. You also can email me. Tinamcguffey@earthlink.net. I am in the process of booking several. So let’s talk.
  8. We are on the same leg--I started a rollcall for 4-19 June but then joined the ATW roll call message me or email me tinamcguffey@earthlink.net
  9. Agree with Stan and Jim--on our Med cruise last summer even on the one sea day there were plenty of lounge spaces available on Riviera, where as the reg pool deck was packed....
  10. i can't wait to join you all in Rome--looking forward to Tea!!! Thanks for sharing all the pics--salivating already.
  11. Hello to all you RTW folks--My husband and I and another couple will be joining you for the Rome-London segment. Seeing your pics and comments are getting me geared up already!. My husband and I are both retiring 2 June--and this is a fitting retirement gift to ourselves. 4th Oceania cruise, 1st time on Insignia. Enjoy and see you in June!
