  1. Thank you all for the thoughts. Leaving tomorrow for several days in Hamburg before the cruise. See you all when I get back!
  2. I am not the red dress lady! I have a blue one and a black one. I was only saying that I thought she should wear hers if she wished.
  3. I checked my policy. Nothing is pre-existing unless it occurred BEFORE I purchased the policy. I have cruised many times. I will be fine.
  4. Yes, I fell after I purchased the policy. This injury would fall within the policy guidelines, as I just checked the policy. It really is not pre-existing, because it did not exist before I bought the policy. It doesn't matter, however, as I am feeling much better after the cortisone shot. My knee is almost normal again, and I am looking forward to having a great time!
  5. Actually, the policy I have covers pre-existing conditions as long as I purchased it within 7 days of the deposit for the trip, which I did. I do not have to notify them about anything unless I am going to activate the policy. Because I followed the purchasing rules, I would be covered whether they know or not.
  6. Yes, I have a brace. It helps quite a bit. I don't really need a cane as I can still put full weight on the knee.
  7. Thanks! I have already resolved to be in some pain, but will not allow that to dampen my good time. I will just take it a little easy and relax a bit more. I may have to dance in sneakers, but that will be fun as well!
  8. Mmmm, never thought of that. Should I call or wait until we get there?
  9. Around 4 weeks ago, I fell coming out of a store. I hit my right knee, and my head. I felt fine, and went about my business. However, my knee continued to hurt, so Monday I went to an orthopedic surgeon who told me I have a hairline fracture in my kneecap. Of course, we are leaving this Saturday for our Baltic cruise on QV. After flying to Hamburg and staying 3 days, we board the ship on Tuesday 7/16. I had a shot of cortisone for the pain and a brace for the kneecap. My doctor told me to go ahead and enjoy the trip. After 4 weeks, the break has already begun to heal, and there is no reason for me not to go. I was just wondering if I can get away with limiting the amount of walking I do on the ship. Too much makes my leg stiff and painful. I don't want to get a wheelchair, because I don't really think I need one. We are in Queens Grill, on the back of the ship on Deck 5. I have some painkillers just in case. I guess if I didn't have bad luck, I would have no luck! LOL
  10. I too am disembarking in Kiel July 25th. We are staying in Hamburg three days before the cruise as well. We looked at Cunard's transfers, but found a private car transfer for 40 Euros less than their bus! Our flight doesn't leave until the 26th, and we have an airport hotel for the one night. We are thinking of perhaps taking the airport train into the city to see anything we missed on the first leg. PM me if you want the name of the transfer company.
  11. Hi Gareth! I love Cornwall. We spent two weeks there several years ago in a little town whose name I can't remember. Had a great time. See you on the 17th! Looking forward to it.
  12. Actually, my name is Anita. My husband is Roger and we are from NYC. We will see you guys in QG lounge at 7. All gussied up! We will be the couple in Black and White LOL
  13. Well then, come on over for a drink! All are welcome. Us New Yorkers, contrary to popular opinion, are really very friendly.
  14. Sure, what night are you thinking of? How about Wednesday the 17th before dinner? Perhaps 6:30 or 7:00 PM?
  15. Sounds good. See you in Queens Grill.
