  1. I rather imagine that poster has already completed his/her cruise, since it was asked almost 2 years ago.
  2. Maybe ask over on the Princess forum? https://boards.cruisecritic.com/forum/119-princess-cruises/
  3. I really doubt that anyone's come up with a search engine that can search all cruiselines by room category and/or per day rate. I usually just start with a search by itinerary.
  4. Vantage is a river cruise company. The River cruise forum is where you'll find any discussion of them. Most river cruise companies don't have cruises with as many people as ocean cruises, so all river cruises are there: https://boards.cruisecritic.com/forum/115-river-cruising/ Yes, I know they're launching a larger ocean going ship, but it's only one, from Hong Kong and it's not cruising until 2021.
  5. For ice packs when traveling, I just use a ziploc bag wrapped in a washcloth (or towel, or my handy-dandy bandana I always have).
  6. I was going to say I think "pointy" end is cute.
  7. Yes, it makes sense. I'll have to go back and check the credits we got on the last cruise. So, my pre-paid excursions, included HSC, and any purchases we made onboard count? And, whatever the total is, say $1200 (4 extra days) we both get 4 days added to our Mariner accounts?
  8. Even if the HSC was an included promotional perk? As in, we didn't pay the HSC, the cruise line did.
  9. I'm not saying I'm looking for the credits. I was just asking because of what was posted by oaktreerb and *Miss G*. They seem to say it should be. I don't think that would included, either, if it was included as a promotional perk.
  10. Does the HSC count in calculating credits? Do they just total all the spending in a room and give both people the same number of credits? So I spend XX on excursions pre-cruise, and my partners account is the one we use for onboard purchases, and HSC (if also included) all equals, say $946. Do we both get 3 extra days?
  11. Are you talking about the extra mariner days for onboard spending? We had included gratuities on our last cruise. And didn't receive extra days for equal to that amount after the cruise.
  12. A river cruise is more like a land tour, but you get to keep your same "hotel" room, because you're on a boat that moves with you. And, generally, you can get off every day in a new city. Ocean cruises are like, well, ocean cruises. You'll have days where there's no port of call. I've done both. I like both. As stated, two different animals.
  13. From the Norwegian Cruise line website: Is there a doctor on board? A physician and nurse are on each ship to provide medical care and services at customary charges. Commonly used medications are kept on board and may be prescribed by the ship's doctor. How did you take a cruise and don't recall the ship's name? How recent was this cruise?
  14. How would that work with Customs? Don't you have to have the sealed bottle?
