  1. Hyphenated word is not hyphenated. non-hyphenated word is hyphenated
  2. My first RCI Cruise was on Explorer in 2007, but already being Elite on Celebrity made me Diamond on RCI. At that time Diamonds (note ALL Diamonds) had access to Concierge Lounges. I think Freedom in 2006 was the first ship built with a Diamond Lounge, and about 2008 (I sure someone on here will know the date) Diamonds were excluded from Concierge Lounges. Ships without Diamond Lounges then offered a Diamond Event with soda, wine and peanuts and pay as you go beer and cocktails. When Diamond Plus became a category (pretty sure that came into existence after 2008, but I could be wrong), D+ were allowed access to both DLs and CLs.
  3. Those converted the large 45rpm holes to standard holes if you had a three speed (33, 45, 78) player.
  4. Did these come from being sold in a store, or were these “One glass FREE, with 8 gallons of gasoline!” (at 29.9 cents per gallon)?
  5. You just use the Covid Claw directly in lieu of toilet paper.
  6. I sure won’t pay over $70,000 per year to go to a school that can’t spell “forty”
  7. I will ask precisely the same questions I asked before. As far as I can tell you answered none of these questions. Can you answer even one of the questions? What “law“ are you referring to? (There is no way any one law is going to cover all the possibilities) Define “legal name” Define “name was changed legally”. What does it it even mean that a passport is “out of compliance”? Compliance to what? According to you, no person who is planning on changing their name upon marriage can go on a honeymoon outside the US until they have applied for and waited perhaps months for a new passport. REALLY? Sort of kills the honeymoon business.
  8. It is nowhere near as simplistic as you state. What “law“ are you referring to? (There is no way any one law is going to cover all the possibilities) Define “legal name” Define “name was changed legally”. What does it it even mean that a passport is “out of compliance”? Compliance to what? In most US states the name on your birth certificate would be your legal name to start with, but names can change in many ways. Most places allow you (whether male or female) to change your name upon marriage or other circumstances with generally no notification to any government agency. The only requirement generally is that you use the name regularly in a non-fraudulent manner. Some state require you to inform some government agency or go to court to change your name, but many areas allow wide latitude as long as it is non-fraudulent. Many people have two names that they do indeed use in a non-fraudulent manner as it is more and more common to have one name used socially and another name used professionally.
  9. Not an outright lie🙄 I thought that if you remember Woodstock, you were NOT there. I can’t remember if I was there or not 😄
  10. Unfortunately I have been on some ships where certain areas smelled like Bean Burrito Class. 💩☠️
  11. The only thing that comes to mind is with your status you will have Happy Hour Lounge access whether you are in the Grand Suite or not. Your friends however would have Lounge access only if they are the occupants of record in the GS. RCI hopes to sell more drinks by giving you double lounge access and no lounge access to your friends. You could still do an off the record cabin switch to allow your friends to stay in the GS, but they would not have full Suite privileges unless the change was official. Good Luck.

  13. And our friends from across the Pond can tell us what “the WC” is.
  14. Wow, such wonderful memories of the good old days....
  15. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Invest_(meteorology) An invest in meteorology (short for investigative area, alternatively written INVEST)[1] is a designated area of disturbed weather that is being monitored for potential tropical cyclone development
  16. People were pick on things people were doing (or not doing) in the video. I don’t see people picking apart the video or the videographer. BIG difference.
  17. WW II lasted 6 years. COVID deaths in the US have been going on for 5 months. Unfortunately we could equal their percentage in a year. But maybe it will magically disappear.
  18. The amount of thought you have put into this is more than a little scary 😳
  19. No caption BUT questions: Is that a real photograph? If so, from what location? And who puts a $50 trailer on a $300,000 stand?
  20. bell pepper; all these are spelled just like they are pronounced 😳
  21. And some more info on previous jobs: http://www.asiatraveltips.com/news20/307-DrCalvinJohnson.shtml He seems to always be looking for new challenges.
  22. Interesting that RCI’s new Chief Medical Officer previous job was overseeing medical care to prison inmates. I guess he does have experience with captive populations. https://www.miamiherald.com/news/business/tourism-cruises/article244849552.html “The company recently hired Dr. Calvin Johnson, former Chief Medical Officer for Corizon Health, one of the largest private companies providing prison and jail healthcare in the U.S., to be its Global Head of Public Health and Chief Medical Officer. Johnson and a panel of outside health experts, some who used to work at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, are developing protocols the company will use when it decides to resume cruises.” Read more here: https://www.miamiherald.com/news/business/tourism-cruises/article244849552.html#storylink=cpy
