Default Roll Call Abbreviations

We have only done short cruises before but have now booked three longer cruises and joined the roll calls. I am really perplexed by some of the abbreviations used such as: 'doing the TP on the Solstice' followed by another TA on the Reflection'.

I get the meaning of B 2 B but the above two have left me scratching my head. Can someone please clue me in?
Many thanks

TP appears to be Trans-Pacific, while TA can be Trans-Atlantic, or Travel Agent. EM

If you aren't certain what an abbreviation means, don't hesitate to ask.

I have used Cruise critic for several years and still often find the Alphabet soup hard to translate. And I am also guilty of using those shortcuts.
