  1. The hospital issued birth certificate wasn’t even acceptable 30 years ago. It’s basically a souvenir.
  2. If the shuttle takes you to the Festival Building, you just walk across it and out the other side. Rawson Square is right there, with a covered hair braiding place and your tour should be on the other side of the square. The absolute worst part is from the gangway, the length of the wharf you’re docked at, and then the long part to shore. The shuttle would really be a blessing. The wharf looks like the letter E, and it’s a long walk even if you’re at the middle of the E. My ship always manages to be at the farthest wharf. Can your friend use a Rollator? If she can, if getting from the building to the tour pick up point is too far for her, she can sit a moment and recoup. Mine helped in the British Isles when transportation seemed to be miles from the ship. No shuttles there. If your friend rents a scooter for the cruise, usually they have to be kept in the cabin, which is awkward, unless you can get a handicapped cabin.
  3. Sometimes they chat with guys on the other team. Kind of like a temporary cease fire.
  4. Surely OP received a confirmation while he was in the phone with the cruise line. Even if the confirmation didn’t arrive immediately, cancellations don’t start until after 5pm on final payment date. The confirmation would show the removal of the insurance. If OP was actually on the line and said to remove it and didn’t request a confirmation showing that it was done, I would say it’s on him. It’s just hard for me to understand that the agent on the phone would say the insurance was removed when it wasn’t. Knowing that the client could see a confirmation and know it wasn’t removed.
  5. Your birth certificate is good for your lifetime, but your new passport will probably arrive before you finish packing.
  6. Are you saying you still put water in a duffel bag, check it, and it still gets to your cabin? That’s how we always did it and it was great. The less ship’s water I drink the less my feet and ankles swell. That is a time tested fact.
  7. If you noticed the Vacation Protection Plan included, surely you would request its removal. If you paid everything less the insurance amount there would be a conversation regarding the nonpayment. At that time the insurance would be removed. No cancellation.
  8. Thank you. Even back when I had a pretty good brain I would never had come up with that!
  9. I’ve stayed at the Cavendish. It’s on Jermyn St a block or so off Piccadilly. Very convenient to Piccadilly Circus and Trafalgar Square. Easy walking to Green Park, St James’s Park and Buckingham Palace. We were totally safe, and centrally located. Mover the years we’ve stayed at quite a few other hotels, including the Grosvenor on Park Lane which is great but pricey, and the Tara in Kensington, used for American tour groups and usually has good rates, comfortable, and short walk to the Underground.
  10. If no one has mentioned it yet, be sure to tell the airline is for a cruise. My and friends’ past history indicates you have a better chance of getting flights that work better. Even at check in I let agent know I’m flying to a cruise. They will not be as likely to pick you to bumper.
  11. I stood next to the captain once on Oasis picking up our roast beefs. He heard me order double meat and he changed his order. Hope he liked it as much as I do.
  12. Do they have an MDR menu in Coastal Kitchen? DH is a meat and potatoes guy, I like menus that look interesting. Mixed marriage!
  13. I am glad RCI offers it. If anyone would know, it would be Bob. Jacksonville is a good place to live. Maybe you’ll get here to visit your in-laws.
  14. I’m hoping to get DH to try it. I’m thinking, thought, that there’s a different feel to the menu, and also that it has fewer choices. Is the menu for each night posted?
