  1. Well, we love your city. 😊 So disappointed that our Coastal cruise from San Diego was cancelled this past spring due to Covid. We always take a couple of days pre-cruise in embarkation city, and my poor husband was devastated when we couldn't get down there this year. 😔
  2. So many interesting replies in this thread; agree with some, SHM on others (and that's OK!). 😂 We have travelled quite a bit and have seen some amazing places. I guess for me, one of the most underwhelming places was Grand Canyon. It just wasn't fabulous, for me. It was a nice time of year, it wasn't overly crowded, the weather was lovely... it just didn't thrill me. Same trip - what DID thrill me was Bryce Canyon!!! AMAZING and so much prettier and more scenic than Grand Canyon. Glorious.💕
  3. I've mentioned this before but actual priority boarding (not check-in) can vary at embarkation ports. We were CC in San Diego and had to take a number and wait a long time to board.
  4. Thank you. I am deep into chemo once again but looking forward to the spread that my loving husband has prepared for us. We are having dinner here with our grown kids, masked and distanced. Hope I'm hungry.😊 But it's really all about the pie anyway.🥧
  5. Still would not feel comfortable cruising in January, to anywhere. The cases and deaths are still going up. My opinion is it's just not safe now and probably anytime in the next 6 - 9 months.
  6. Well, you know I had to look it up.... 😉 https://www.carnival.com/shore-excursions/victoria/sights-and-flavors-of-victoria-230043 Trust me and others, I'm actually glad you won't be going as this can all be done for less money and you'd probably get more enjoyment out of it doing things on your own. Four hours is not a lot of time so you'll have to plan. Additionally, you may not be able to get off the ship right at 8, but I hope it will be as close as possible. Others have and others will reply to you, but I think your best mileage might be to use the search function for this board using "Victoria". You'll pull up lots of threads as this has been discussed many times, and many of us have given advice. Hope you get to cruise! 😊
  7. Some people are scared, nervous, anxious - we don't know what we don't know. I choose to extend grace in these difficult times. Everyone has an opinion and it may differ from yours. That's OK. What is right for you is not right for me, for several reasons. It's still OK.
  8. I'm sorry you feel your comment is true. You may not reply, but for others who are reading please know that some patients ARE being re-infected. I would beg you to please consider others and wear a mask, even though you have had and recovered from Covid (happy to hear that, by the way - sincerely). Burying one's head in the sand or turning away when you don't like the answers you get is not going to help anyone get through this pandemic.
  9. For me, I don't think I could even enjoy the day's excursion with this in the back of my mind. Stress can be a silent beast... creeps up on you... there is absolutely no way I would book this tour, even with the so-called promise. I mean, it's all fun and games until the bus gets caught in traffic, someone is late returning to the bus and that makes everyone late, the bus breaks down... you get the idea. 😉
  10. Wondering if you would please explain your two comments here...
  11. Agreed - the afternoon canapes were sad little morsels, barely edible if they had been sitting for hours until you finally got back to your cabin to eat them. 🤪 We didn't use the binoculars (wouldn't anyway), but we did order the bottle of sparkling wine and shared a toast with my sister and BIL who were traveling in another cabin. That was nice, but not worth the extra money, for us.
  12. Thank you. We have sailed both Solstice and Eclipse, and they are phenomenal - the food, the service, the ships themselves are fabulous. I know you would have a wonderful experience on either ship. I'm sorry I can't speak to Koningsdam but perhaps someone else may.
  13. I could look it up, but maybe you could just mention which specific ships you are looking at? Sometimes that helps sway me. 😊
  14. Wow, rough crowd. 😦 I'm sure OP only had good intentions. Gee.
