John-I'm sure this is one of those questions that you are going to say "Hold your horses, be patient". Will we have an opportunity to have Dave Smith sign any of his books while on the cruise? Just curious and sorry if it's too soon to ask that question.

I can actually answer this one now

Yes, similar to what we did with our guests on PCC 3.0 we will build in some time after Dave Smith's talk for autograph's and a meet and greet.

I have no idea when any of this will occur yet.

Yikes - Dolphin pre-cruise rooms are almost gone. I tried to book Wednesday through Saturday and could only get Thursday!

I booked what I could - any chance John Wednesday might open up or I can get on a waiting list to add that night?

And for those that are on the fence or wanting a room Thursday and Friday night - you better hurry!

So I just started listening to the live Podcast from 3.0, and heard about the Remy brunch. Is anyone interested in getting a group together to do this? I wonder if they have a "back room" like Palo does, that we could book as a group?

I know only about the Dream, but: yes thay have a private room: we were in it during the Remy brunch on the Dream. To complete the story told on the podcast: we were told that Remy brunch is only served on sea days!

BTW: we really, really, really loved it. We were wasted after six courses of food with champagne , but it was worth it!

They offered Remy brunch on our last sea day only (Eastern on the Fantasy June 16-23). You had to go up to Remy to book. Sounds awesome & well worth the money, just for the champagne alone!!!!

I think we are going to do it on our March cruise & do Palo brunch on Costa Maya day on this cruise instead.

Questions for Everyone

Hey fellow PCC 4.0 ers!

I am agonizing over two issues. I am looking forward to hear how you are approaching each one:

1: Passports - I have one for work, but my wife and kids don't. The argument for getting one is hearing stories like the last PCC where someone had to get evacuated off of the ship and flown home and could not get back into the US without one. On the other hand, we have cruised 5 other times with Birth Certificates and not had a problem.

2: Trip Insurance - Similar argument to above. I can manage some issues, but the thought of getting a $20k bill to be taken to the Bahamas by helicopter.

I guess it all comes down to money. If I had unlimited money, I would do it all. But I am trying to be thrifty, but not stupid.

Let me know your thoughts.

Scott

If you had unlimited money, you could afford to self-insure your trip. It's the folks who can least afford to lose the cruise fare or pay a huge medical bill who need insurance the most. I don't buy trip insurance for US land trips, but I do for cruises.

We have passports. Keep in mind that you aren't getting them for just this cruise. They are good for 10 years (adults) so you are covered for any other trip you may be taking to a foreign country.

I almost never take insurance. However, if there was any potential problem looming, then I would buy it. Fortunately I'm in good health and have pretty good health insurance. Its also not likely that i'll need to cancel for other reasons so I forgo trip insurance. Yes, I'm willing to bear a fair amount of risk. You may be different.
