  1. Fabulous photo. Love that one can see all the layers and colours in the clouds. Sandy
  2. Unfortunately, crew only does this for a few days and then they give up. We were on the CB last month and was happy to see the hand washing stations. One time a group walked right by without either using Purell or the sink to wash hands. Then I saw the man swipe his nose with his hand. Called him on it but it was like talking to a brick wall. Do my best to take sanitizer with me and use it after going thru the Markeplace and before eating.
  3. If you are on the royal class ships like the royal, the showerhead in the nini suite is on a hose that you can pull down. You can request a bath seat for the tub which you should do ahead of time. I used to do that until I had a bad experience of a provided seat which belonged in the garbage as it was defective, old and in horrible shape so it was an accident waiting to happen. Thankfully on that particular cruise we spent time in London before hand and since the hotel did not have bath seats available, we took one with us. Since then I purchased a bath stool instead of a bath bench, both of which can be taken apart and assembled without the need of a screwdriver and packs easily into our checked luggage. If you want to discuss further details of getting in and out of the tub, please feel free to email me at Soaring2005 at yahoo dot ca sandy
  4. When we were on The Royal, most trivia games were in Club 6. Evening games were in Princess Live. You are correct that Princess Live is not a comfortable place nor the best place for trivia IMHO but it is what it is.
  5. Hope you post along the way. Have been patiently waiting for the CB to leave port...sure is late. Listening to the chatter. A bit ago it was mentioned about meeting two guests and wonder if they were going on the CB. Now they are about to weigh anchor and get underway. Have an awesome cruise.
  6. Thank you very much rdsgrl for your kindness in letting us know about the taxi situation. We so very much appreciate having this knowledge beforehand. My luggage is on spinner wheels, DH's isn't so a porter will be worthwhile. Enjoy your time in Quebec City and safe journey when you head home. Sandy
  7. I guess my words weren’t correct...I broke my ankle a long time ago and not when cruising. Just understanding what 1stCruiser is going thru. sandy
  8. If it is convenient, I have a favour to ask. If anyone plans on taking a taxi upon disembarkation, would you be so kind as to post your experience in this forum. Taxis are a dime a dozen in Ft. Lauderdale but suspect QC will be very different so would aopreciate knowing how difficult this was. Thanks a bunch. Thanks CruiseVA for posting the Patters...most helpful. Sandy
  9. I am so sorry that your trip ended this way. I have broken my ankle so can emphasize what you are going through. You will be happy that you are home for the surgery and recovery. Take care.
  10. I enjoyed following along on this journey and thanks to all the on board posters. So sorry that your day in Quebec City is a soggy one...guess you will just have to return some day. Safe jouney home and if you are continuing on the cruise, enjoy the rest of your voyage and hope you still post along the way. Sandy
  11. Halifax has many port webcams so it was super easy and fun to watch as the CB sailed into port. Looks like a lovely day so hope everyone enjoys it. Very much appreciate all the comments, either good or bad, of experiences of those on the ship. We board in September.
  12. Thank you very much for all of the information you provided and will look into the sailboat tour. Sandy
  13. A request please if it is convenient and you think of it. We are on the CB Canada/New England cruise in September that includes Newport. We can't make up our minds what to do there but considering the land/sea excursion. I would really like to see the Clingstone House on the Rocks and wonder if you will cruise by it going into port where the ship will anchor. No sense going on the sea cruise excursion if the same thing can be seen from the ship. Thanks a bunch. Bon Voyage everyone and wish you calm seas and blue skies. I will love watching the ship leaving Ft Lauderdale today knowing we will soon be on it. Sandy
  14. That relieves my mind about the free minutes and will certainly contact Princess to explain the gift. Thank you.
  15. Need some clarification. Will be on the CB for 10 days so I should be getting 250 minutes free. Then I read in a post that free minutes are no longer there for Platinum and Elite but info on the personalizer doesn't say that. In addition, this is a medallion ship and the following is according to my personalizer. Do not know what it means. My head is spinning.
