  1. Taking the World Cruise in January and I do have a few questions: -are the walls magnetic so I can post notes, hang a map etc.? -how powerful is the hair dryer? - We have a standard outside "limited view- lifeboat" cabin. Is there a comfortable reading chair or just the standard hard back desk chair? -Can suitcases fit under the bed? -.... and any other tips would be appreciated!!! Thanks
  2. Make sure you buy some mustard in the squeeze tubes. I bought paprika but the mustard is really great.
  3. If you buy from the cruise ship it only covers the cruise period, I think. Not airfare, excursions, hotels before and after. I agree- go to insuremytrip.com
  4. We are on the Costa Deliziosa World Cruise and the itinerary says it docks in Cristobal. But many tours leave from Colon or Colon 2000. Does anyone know if these two docks are right next to each other? One tour picks up at the "casino" at Colon 2000 dock.
  5. Doesn't work for me. I go to Roll Calls, pick Costa and it doesn't take me to a link for the ship. I just have to scroll thru by date, and sometimes the heading is the ship, sometimes by date etc. If you can find a Roll Call for the Deliziosa for the world tour (other than the one I started) it would be great!!
  6. We bought the insurance a week or so ago, and the final payment was just paid. We chose a limit that just includes cruise + air + hotels. The price was about 8% of the policy limit. We used InsureMyTrip for comparisons and choose the cheapest but most comprehensive plan. Can't wait
  7. I did find a calendar for the itinerary and have it straightened out. But it does kind of boggle the mind. And frankly, Costa is not the most easy to navigate web site especially for an English speakers. At least now I can book non-ship excursions without being afraid I'm booking it for a day after the actual day.... or before the actual day... Oy.
  8. Well, I think I figured out that we don't lose a day. But I still don't understand it!! I was a student in North Carolina when they first adopted Daylight Saving Time. I had a hard time getting people to understand that " No, days won't be only 23 hours long the future. When you go to bed at 2:00 (hey, it was college) just move your clock to 3:00 AM, then when you wake up, just carry on"
  9. I'm CONFUSED and also feeling very stupid, Our Costa cruise isn't showing the intinerary by actual calendar date, but by day of the cruise. So day 1 is a Sunday and I'm filling in a calendar. I get to Rarotonga in the Cook Islands which is the 47th day. That's Feb 18 Then we cruise for 5 days ( 19,20,21,22, 23) until we get to Tauranga NZ. So that day is February 24, right? I've been looking at times right now and up thru the Cook Islands, it is today (Saturday) and then in NZ it's Sunday. I want to book some excursions but want to make sure I have the days correct. Actually, we get free excursions in NZ and Australia. Maybe they're afraid we'll disappear into the Twilight Zone.:-) Suggestions? Calm me down :')
  10. We're on the Costa Deliziosa for a "real" world wide tour. We leave Venice on January 5 2020 and return April 26. I started a roll call but no one has signed on. Sorry Cruise Critic, but this website is almost impossible to negotiate since it was "updated" a few years ago. I 'd love to hear from anyone going on this cruise
  11. Going on the World cruise in January. Many people take several pieces of luggage on world cruises and I know that some of the luxury lines will take your luggage and store them somewhere. Does anyone know if Costa does this? Or can anyone confirm that we can store several suitcases under the bed? I think maybe we'll bring a few duffel bags because they can collapse.
  12. On the World cruise Costa has told me that we can purchase on board; they are not posting prices ahead of time. We almost certainly will buy a package at some point, but I guess we'll mostly keep in touch using terminals and coffee shops . I was hoping to keep a blog and send it to family and friends, but I suspect I'd rather spend my time visiting the ports and not sitting in a portside Burger King!
  13. We have gotten a few quotes thru InsureMyTrip. They are a little lower than AAA and now we just have to decide on one. I'm not so concerned about trip cancellation; I just want to have enough to pay a hospital bill out of the country and evacuate me in the event of a true emergency. Getting excited; seemed eons away when we booked it and now it's almost here!!
  14. We are getting quotes for our world cruise in January. We have to pay the final payment by October 5. Now we are in shock over the premium/quote we have received from AAA and they are usually pretty reasonable. The price is almost 14% of the cost of the cruise and airfare alone!! We didn't even add in the cost of a few hotel nights and any pre-paid excursions that might not be refundable. I did research a few online providers, but few will cover you for a single trip that is more than 90 days. I found that when we were trying to get an annual policy. Anyone have any suggestions ?
  15. We're taking a world cruise in January on the Deliziosa. Costa is currently offering three plans for wifi on board, but it's all based on GB and the biggest plan is 3GB for about 200 Euro. In a phone call, the Costa contact said that there will probably be other choices once on board. My question: haw fast is the internet on board Costa ships? I know many people sign up and then say that most of the "minutes" are spent waiting to connect or waiting for web sites to open etc. We hoped to be able to work on a blog, or email the kids or just keep involved with local issues back home and avoid spending all our port time sitting in a cafe trying to connect. Any opinion is welcome.
