  2. I don't recall the shade sails on the Sunrise Deck. This may be nice for those that are looking for shade.
  3. My understanding is the adhesive tags are for N.A. passengers only. All you need to do is request them as indicated above. Easiest is to go to your cruise and choose Cruise Planner - Next click Tab - "Before You Board" Select either Print Luggage or at the Bottom there is a Button "Mail Me Luggage Tags"
  4. Thanks for posting such a well thought out and well written message.
  5. I'm sure they can accommodate if you contact them at least 24 hours in advance. They did ask when ordering if anyone in our party had any food allergies.
  6. Look forward to meeting you. This is shaping up to be a fun cruise and we know a number of fellow cruisers already. BTW - My partner's name is Iain (with an I) which is the Scotch version of Ian and pronounced the same. He get's called Lain often. You will definitely find me out walking I generally do 25,000-30,000 steps a day which is how I keep from blimping out. I usually walk outside on Deck 11 (Sunrise) and then climb the steps Forward and Aft to make a loop. Will be interesting to see how the new Retreat affects my forward walk on Deck 12. If the weather is cold or too windy I find refuge and walk the hallways starting on deck 9 and work my way up and down.
  7. Nice to hear the storm fell apart. From Windy it looks like the remnants will approach a little north of Nassau on Thursday.
  8. Unfortunately you are unable to remove a portion of the automatic gratuities. You can however remove all your tips and then use that form to re-allocate how much you wish to give. Like you I was shocked that the stateroom attendant was given such a small portion of the tips. On our last cruise I finally got some clarification that if you write the person's name and position the tips will go to the individual. Tips given to the position are pooled and shared. I had a large non-refundable and wanted to leave additional tips but wanted them to go directly to the individuals. They were notified by the Suites Manager (who on Infinity was doing the payroll entries) and they thanked me personally.
  9. Not been in contact with anyone on Summit but monitoring on Windy and looks like the seas are not much heavier than 2-2.5 meters (less than 10 feet). For this cruise the only port call will be King's Wharf Bermuda for 3 days unlike your (and our) cruise that includes New England ports as our cruise is 11 days and the current sailing is only 7.
  10. Feel free to post it here also. I think one of the YouTube videos was posted here yesterday.
  11. Current tips and distribution
  12. Captain Dimitris just posted some pictures
  13. Now a picture of the new Equinox Lifeboat Team -
