  1. Royal had a beer card 10 beers for I think 40 dollars . It said draft only but the bar tenders gave you what ever you wanted. They also had 2 dollar mimosas in the casino every morning. They were pretty good at finding your price point(mine anyway). This was the the Royal ship out of Balt.
  2. Sorry for the late notice ,cruise shows all night on the Smithsonian channel. None are new but it is all we have .
  3. What can they do ? .How about having an election every 50 years or so . I know if those in charge really cared about the ''people '' they would make peace with the U.S. FOR the people of Cuba .Instead of going backwards from the richest country in the area to the poorest . Stop being right and do the smart thing.
  4. Whatever the policy of Cuba or U.S I don't think the demand for Cuba cruises was all that strong .They were not selling well and they pulled one ship off that route . Cuba may work as a ''WOW I am in cuba'' thrill but that will not last last long. Are they ready for mass tourism I doubt they have the systems or experience to handle what most people want.Do they have a port that can handle the big ships from Miami and F.L. I do not think so. When you see travel shows from Cuba what do they have some more 57 chevy's and poorly equiped baseball teams. The truth is they are stuck in the early 6
  5. Got an E-mail from X on cruises for Europe this summer . looked pretty good seemed like a lot were from Amsterdam (which is fine with me) the prices were high I think they will go down . Have any other lines made any plans for Europe I know H.A.L. has not .We are hoping to do a ''Grand Voyage ''with them I hope they will still offer these.Are any of you looking at Europe for this summer .
  6. We like most today have all our pics on everything but old school paper . I saw that Walmart was only .09 per pic. and went for it half today and the rest tomorrow . I worry about losing all these pics from Europe and Caribbean cruises. it is a lot of pics from 12 years of travel but I think it is a great Personal gift (Mrs. Dolittle is hard to buy for) .It may end up costing a lot even at .09 per but worth it . I got her a couple of albums too .Anyone else buying anything cruise related for Christmas.
  7. Thanks all, I was hoping to do the 27 day this April it was canceled . It all sounds great hope it will happen .
  8. We are looking to do a Grand Voyage the longest we have ever done is 15 days . Would like to do double that on a H.A.L. G.V .For those of you who have done this what is it like . Do you get sick of the food ,do you sit at the same table every night ( I know you do not have to) Please fill me in on the best and worst parts of a long cruise.
  9. It seems like this might make sense (along with some kind of card ) it would make it easier for travel and at ports and airports around the world. Plus I think it is more serious crime to fake up a passport for any anti vaxers . Those who want to could bring there passport to the place where they get the shot and have it marked. Have not heard what they are going to do about a card or whatever I think they will have to have something. Those of you in other countries what are they planing to do . What do you think how should we handle this because there are going to be people who will not get
  10. Hope these will make it to the U.S. soon .Enjoy.
  11. I bought a new Passport holder today at Walmart it faux leather from the very prestigious line of American Tourister $ 3.10 in the clearance aisle . Have you bought anything to cheer you up or make you forget this mess. I would think all these companies are hurting like luggage stores it amazing how many of these there are and they are pretty high end .Please let this nightmare end soon.
  12. Sounds silly but it kind of is, been married 46 years and a big part of things we do as a couple is travel,cruise and share the planing . So when something that is a big part of your couple-dum is not there it has a bad effect. We enjoy doing it as a together and do it well together. When something that is a big part of your life is yanked out from under you it is stressful to both. I am someone who does not like change please let this nightmare end.
  13. We many people do not care for Bilbao we thought it was pretty good nice waterfront some wild architecture and good walking .Would like to see San Sebastian. One thing we did notice the port (Gexto I think it was called) was by far the most friendly and glad to have you port ever.There was a nice beach right next to the ship.
