Hi, I’ve never actually done a TR b/c I failed to ever do one from my last WDW trip in 2019. So, here goes. I have no idea if I can keep it up live b/c I don’t know what Princess’ wifi will be like.
Question: is La Cava Del Chat the place for this TR?
Me, DW48, solo (yeah baby!)
When: leaving this Sunday, Sept 17 on Amtrak train from DC to NYC
–evening, then one full day in NYC before embarking from Brooklyn cruise port
–3 ports in New England and 6 in Canada–but of course Hurricane Lee might change all that
–10 day cruise, my first cruise
–disembarkation in Quebec City and one hotel night there, so 2 full days in Quebec
It’s very strange to be preparing for this cruise…again. I’ve mentioned in the forum many times, over the past 4 yrs, that I had an Alaskan cruise planned that got postponed. Here is the rundown:
–Booked in Oct 2019, so almost exactly 4 yrs ago
It was a group cruise organized by a travel agent
–June 2020: postponed covid
–June 2021: ditto
–June 2022: a week before travel we had a death in the family.
Trip insurance worked, and I was able to use my airline credit for a different trip last Feb.
–Sept 2023: 4th time scheduling 1st cruise…fingers crossed!
Even if the ports get completely changed I will still go. I just want the experience. The hurricane will likely be out of Canada before I embark in New England, but I am keeping an open mind and remembering that these storms can change course. I just hope that it stays as far away from land as possible and that everyone is ok.
The cruise that’s going on right now, heading to NYC from Quebec, is skipping most of its Canadian ports and will stay in Boston 3 days to escape the storm, then go to NYC on the 19th as planned. At least this is their current plan. I could see it having to change again.
At the moment I’m trying to pack. I have so much data in my head from the past 4 yrs, and lots of planning for Alaska, that it’s all a jumble. But I’m trying to make sense of it with my written master list. I don’t need things like the thick gloves with the removeable fingertips I bought for Alaska (or do I?).
Thanks for following along. I hope to have something to say during the trip, b/c I just don’t know how the wifi situation will be on an older Princess ship. I don’t actually know, but I suspect it doesn’t have Starlink yet.
