I could turn up inappropriately dressed each night and say "well I know it is formal night/you dont like jeans and t shirts but I had to bring my 1835 Antique stuffed Rhino with me but it weighed 19.5 kg so this is all I could bring with the rest of my allowance

I do hope anyone who does take them up on the offer checks their valuables insurance very carefully to make sure it is covered on board

Default What next?

Bring your old shoes for re-soling or perhaps a swapmeet.
We are going on a cruise, not a trip to the mall.

Given the type size and lack of paragraphs you are making a safe prediction. I doubt anyone will even bother to read the entire release.

When I saw the title for this thread, I immediately thought of a bus trip to Baltimore, arranged by our TA, to tour a Carnival ship between sailings.

We were the first to board and I was amused by the number of wheeled beer coolers that passengers brought into the terminal as their carryon luggage. I thought this thread would be about that kind of stuff.

My DW and I feel we already fit the bill of antiques so we don't have to bring anything along to be appraised for value.

Not only can't I fathom anyone coming up with this idea, but I can't imagine anyone in Miami actually approving it and setting it in motion.

"Guests planning to sail on the March 29, 2010 voyage of Celebrity Equinox are encouraged to bring personal items onboard for the duration of the cruise."

For the duration of the cruise???? How do you bring something onboard for LESS than the duration of the cruise?

"Dr. Lori does not appraise antique and collectible stamps, coins, currency, musical instruments (or guns or other weapons, which are prohibited from being brought onboard). Items that are extremely fragile, that may be difficult to carry, or that are particularly subject to damage from exposure to an ocean-going environment should not be brought onboard."

With all the exclusions, it appears the only antique you CAN bring along is the mother-in-law! LOL!

I am indeed and maybe I will see if he will pick this one up though with his new format might be less chance

On my last cruise I kept getting funny looks for laughing whilst listening to my Ipod by the Lawn - it was of course one of the Janet and John CDs I was listening to

Back to the subject of this thread, do you think if they were cruising Boggy would bring some old bottles of Pinot;John would bring some jewel encrusted frock coat and Charlie Nove would try and miss the fire engines as he drove the Routemaster up the gangway

For those who have not a clue what this is about, it related to a UK Radio programme on the BBC which has unfortunately just moved from every morning to once a week - the presenter is 70+ so who can blame him

TOGs are his followers who contributed humour to the show usually based on silly reflections on life (TOGs by nature tend to be average age 50+ who remember how things used to be!!) TOGs never use their own names so write under names like Hellen Bach; Ivy Noidea; Edina Cloud; Dora Jarr; Sir Ian Ambassador etc - get it - their anthem is Young at Heart and their catch phrase is "Do I come here often?"
Most importantly by varous fundraising things and selling CDs of their humour etc they have raised several million pounds for the BBBC Children in Need appeal

If anyone learned to read with the Janet and John books and would like a link to the humour of the double entendre J and J stories written for the prog I can post a link
