    WiFi is extra and not cheap. The best thing is to just find a place with free wifi at ports. We have Verizon and just set our phones up for international calling and it costs $5-10 a day. Or, just get off the grid for a few days. That's worth it right there.

      My wife loves the grid, but iurns out her Ipad has it's own phone number, so it will work anywhere, or so I am told.

      Lots of useful information-thanks!

        What is your experience of cruises? Any suggestions for a first-timer who doesn't like crowds, tight quarters, or social interaction?
        you can always claim seasick and just stay in the cabin. I went on one cruise. It was out of florida into the carribean. 7 days. Its ok for a one time experience. Remember your on a ship with anywhere from 2000 to 4000 other people. had quit drinking by then so I wound up eating mostly. the food is fairly decent. I gained 10 pounds those 7 days.....

          Yeah, I've been told you go on as passengers and come off as cargo.

          She's excited about the Alaska cruise, which might be OK.

              I used to despise cruising with a passion.
              But we went on a cruise in the Baltic and, I must admit, I'm hooked. Now nine cruises later (Princess) we've booked a Pacific Cruise in April, 2020 taking in -among other places-Hawaii ,Tahiti and New Zealand (North Island).

              You should enjoy the Alaska Cruise

                We did the Baltic out of Copenhagen with Norwegian. I thought that I would like St Petersburg and Stockholm the best but actually liked Tallinn and Helsinki more. We took the train to Berlin and I wasn't impressed with it too much until I remembered that the USAAF, RAF and Russian Red Army had something to do with the lack of old architecture.
