  1. American Harmony is currently moored in Cristobal Anchorage, awaiting transit of the Panama Canal. Assume she is making her way to Portland for the April Columbia and Snake River itineraries. EM
  2. The Caribbean, and to some extent Alaska, are the only places where the port lectures are mostly about shopping. Since there are no recommended shopping stores/maps, there are no shopping experts on European cruises. Also, enrichment lectures require sea days, and European cruises have few of those. I have had good talks on Princess in South America and trans-Pacific cruises, and Cunard in Norway and Iceland. And on Solstice TA. There was an interesting lecturer on our one Oceania cruise, even though it was in the Caribbean. EM
  3. Kotor? We docked there on Nieuw Amsterdam and tendered on Silhouette. EM
  4. Our Cunard transfer took us directly to the pier. On Amtrak long distance you travel coach, roomette, or bedroom. We had a bedroom. It makes an inside cabin look really spacious, but still is a great experience. EM
  5. I can see it is a tender port....but that’s about all...
  6. In 2013 we traveled from PHL to San Diego via Amtrak, boarded the Celebrity Infinity and sailed through the Panama Canal to FLL, stayed in her to Harwich. Traveled to London for two nights, staying in the Doubletree Victoria Station on points. Took the Cunard transfer to Southampton to board the QE for a four night cruise.

At the hotel you could book a shuttle to the station. As we are two older ladies, we did that. It sto
  7. Book a hotel in the area of Victoria Coach Station and catch the Cunard transfer bus to Southampton. EM
  8. P&O use it for Azura and Ventura (Princess Grand Class) and Britannia (Princess Royal class); TUI for Mein Schiff 2 (111000 tons or so). Marella uses it also. Difference is most cruises are fly-cruise, direct from the UK, and guests are already checked in on the flight and go direct from plane to transportation to ship. Never even enter the airport terminal. EM
  9. Please change your font. It is wwaayy to small and slim and way to read on an iPad and perhaps other mobile devices. Thus I haven’t read what you wrote. EM
  10. Two mascots meet on Splendor in 2009. EM
  11. You might browse through this thread:
  12. Only Spirit class: Spirit, Legend, Pride, Miracle. EM
  13. For a faster answer, post on the Princess board, where more people will see it. As to pictures, there are pics of this cabin on cruisedeckplans.com, if you are a member. Also pictures of the portside twin, B746 on diamond Princess. EM
  14. They are not coming up for me on Chrome or Edge. Haven't yet tried my ipad. EM Correction: I am now getting them on Edge. EM
