Happy Sailing

Thank You Penny, I've never done a btb. How long are you off the ship and what should we do for such a short time, any suggestions? Do we take our luggage off with us? sorry for all the questions, just have never done this before. Any help would be appreciated.

happy sailing

Sandy

Hi Sandy,

I'm doing a back to back on the Mariner in October and I can relate to your excitement. The Navigator is a great ship, I was on a 15 night transatlantic on the Navigator in April. You don't take you luggage off the ship. You'll be escorted off the ship to get your new seapass cards and then you'll come right back onto the ship. After that process is complete, you'll be able to leave the ship when ever you want.

Sonny

Sonny,

Thank you so much for letting me know about the luggage. I thought we had to take it off with us and back in. Maybe you can answer a question for me, I really don't want to carry 15 days of laundry with me, what's the best way to handle this? Do laundry in between cruises or should I just send it down to the laundry on the ship itself? I was thinking about going to a laundromat the morning between cruises (Not that i really even want to get off the ship at all), but I was just looking for the best way to handle it. So we just take ourselves off the ship? What if we can't get the same room, will they hold the luggage for us? (At this time we are waitlisted for the same room because a group is tentatively scheduled for our room for the first portion) I had the second half booked first and then we found the first part and booked that afterwards. We will be staying at the Lago Mar for 3 nights before the cruise and I'll do any laundry that needs to be done before heading to the cruise port. I am just so excited, definitely going through cruise withdrawal. Thanks again Sonny, you are always so helpful with information.

Happy Cruising

Hello Sandy,

If you have to change cabins, let your cabin steward know and he will take care of your relocation. In the past we never had a problem with laundry because we always pack too much. Things like shorts and t-shirts can easily be washed in the bathroom. If you have a balcony the washed items dry in a few hours when hung over a chair. I pack a small bottle of detergent, just a drop of two does the trick. If needed, there is a laundry service; we never needed the service on any of our cruises. You could just take me along to do your laundry…




P.S.
I don't do windows

We carry a couple clothes clips as well--should your clothes be on the balcony wet when you get underway it is good to them them secured to the deck chairs or something.

Take me, Take me....

I can iron too:-)....opps can't bring irons onboard...I can work a spray can of Wrinkle Remover...:-)

Wash things out in the shower or sink, hang them up and presto..CLEAN...take a spray can of Wrinkle Off or something like that...works great...and your luggage stays, but you have to leave the ship and reboard....Happy sailing....

LOL, you guys are so funny. Sonny I would love to sail with you and your beautiful wife You two seem to truly enjoy people, sailing and best of all each other. I love looking at all of the pictures that you put on. I will definitely write down on my "List" laundry detergent and wrinkle release and bring a ziploc bag with some clothes pins in it. Trying to pack as little as possible. Oh the days do drag when you are waiting to cruise. lol
