ace1zoe2 on their OCD thread said she has 200-300 pics taken as of Friday so you should be happy with those if they ever get them loaded... I will take a lot and no promise but probably give a link to a flickr album sometime after returning.

You contributed something I was unable to which makes that contribution just as valid to those unable to see either aspect themselves.

The appreciation is always nice, Amy likes the company and the way to kill time and interact a bit with people while I'm absent I think, so thank you for being very kind to her. I need no recognition for this, my only request is the same as always...... Contractors on dry dock get paid well for what we do, it's why we do it in the conditions we have to endure and within times scales that seem ludicrous. The crew however do not get paid so well, tipping positions are on minimum wage for dry docks and work just as hard as anyone, maybe more so as most work is brain numbing and the hours are long. PLEASE, if you want to thank me in anyway for sharing pictures with Amy that she passes along, then have a quiet word with a crew member of your choosing, and give them a tip to thank them for the hard work. The crew are without a doubt the unsung heroes on these ships. They work morning till night for an amount a day that most of us could exceed in loose change if we checked the car and the couch. They deserve the credit for the ship. Not the likes of me, my bank manager thanks me enough lol
Dave I haven't been on for a couple of days so not sure what quotes have been said after this but you an Amy are very unique. It isn't often in this day and time that you find people as you that care and think of others as you have shown through this journey and statements above. Your compassion in what you do has shown in the post and pictures along with your compassion to people you do not know. You did this for the love of the job you have and we have enjoyed all of it. The two of you are very lucky to have each other as it has also been evident that Amy also has that same compassion for people which has shown through the post.

I only wish your statements on the crew were seen by more, I cannot stand that when people have one little bad experience on a cruise or anywhere that services are rendered and should be rewarded in tipping are held accountable for that one little thing and no tip is left. The crew works seven days a week for months at a time and you know how that can give you one bad day. Please give them the benifit of the doubt.

From myself I thank you both and know good things will come to the two of you. I only wish this thank you were in person.

So, unless there is a label telling you which way you are looking you will be somewhat disoriented. The picture quality is great but you can only look "outside." It isn't good for TV or games..
Could you imagine if it was a TV?? WHEW!!!

Don, we would have been on the 16th with all of you but grand kids have winter break so we have kiddo duties. Know all of you will have a great time. We would love to see the new stateroom pictures.
Bon Voyage,
Mark & Nancy

I do have a question maybe Dave or someone can answer. What is the standard railing height? Is it the same for the balconies and the outer decks? Tried finding height on line but there seemed to be several different answers. Sorry if this isn't keeping in line with ordinal topic but thought maybe Dave knew since it looked like they were adding new railing.

I was sat in the security office on the Carnival Legend, and noticed a memo taped to the wall detailing the changes to regulations and the work that would needed to be carried out and by who to comply with them..... 2012 the handrail height became a mandatory 42" minimum... and I immediately remembered this question so stored the information to relay back to you
