  1. I have dined in my costume, even on a Chic night. And I wasn't alone.
  2. The Half baked chicken was wonderful. So moist!
  3. You will dock in Crown Bay, so easy access to Water Island.
  4. What cabin/category? Could you tell if the cabin was refreshed? New carpet, bedding, verandah furniture? If in a verandah cabin, can you describe the verandah furniture? Table height (cocktail or dining)? Reclining chairs or not? Footstools? Were the door locks changed to RFID (you would be able to use a cell phone to open the door)? Was there a coffee table in the cabin? Thanks in advance.
  5. Some good news from FB "They brought a new balcony table this morning. We're in a sky suite. It's nice and eating height! 😉" So no more reclining chairs ??? Hide or report this We got one this afternoon also. Now it looks like they are changing all of the mattresses on deck 12. Ours is gone and there are alot of new ones in the hallway. They need those back on all balconies. Hide or report this
  6. I'm not sure what benefit the distinction is worth. While there will be cabins added, we don't know if there will be any re-numbering of cabins that would make it confusing, though I may be missing something. Marilyn - If you are online now, please reply. I'd like to update the online spreadsheet and want someone to make sure it is working properly.
  7. Thanks for your input. I've made a change to the Problem/Comments section. You can also search the spreadsheet for words by using CTRL-F and putting "Crew" in the search box. From there you can use the data sort to see the word by cabin number or ship. Hopefully that helps. PROBLEMS/COMMENTS (Explain all Noise (including crew door issues), Wind and Soot Problems here, plus all Comments and information regarding things like connecting or accessible cabins)
  8. I offered to take over the spreadsheet a month or so ago and have spent quite some time figuring out the advantages that the present website has over the prior version. I also found after reviewing the spreadsheet that there were interpretation problems with what information was being requested. After consulting with the prior admin of the S-Class sheet (Carolyn) and the present E-Class admin (Marilyn), I've made some changes to the request template and some formatting changes. I'm hoping the below template will facilitate more consistent responses, that will in turn, make the search/sort features more effective. Below is the proposed template, which requests more specific Cabin Category and Ship location information, and encourages the addition of photos. SHIP NAME CABIN # DECK # (3-14) CATEGORY: 7-12, 1A-1C, 2A-2D, A1-A2, C1-C3, CS, FV, PS, RF, RS, S1-S2, SG, SV LOCATION ON SHIP: Port (left), Starboard (right), Bow (front), Stern (back) or Inside and Forward, Midship, or Aft (For example: Port-Midship, Bow-Forward or Inside-Aft) BED NEAR (Bath, Balcony, Window, N/A) QUIET? (Yes/No/Usually) BALCONY VIEW (Good, Great, Obstructed?) BALCONY SIZE (Standard, Oversized, Other) WIND A PROBLEM? (Yes/No/Sometimes) SOOT A PROBLEM? (Yes/No/Sometimes) PROBLEMS/COMMENTS (Explain all Noise, Wind and Soot Problems here, plus all Comments and information regarding things like connecting or accessible cabins) PICTURES (Attach pictures in your response) This is a link to the present working copy: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1lUfQOnlcOwNy_nLJywqHWYci-pt3WF_P4ZzF7jcsX70/edit?usp=sharing Once this conversion is done, the present S-Class Sticky will become "Read-Only," but will remain a Sticky. Remember, I'm not being paid to do this, so be kind with your criticism.
  9. Hcat - Since Jim is into tutorials, why don't we do a quick one. If you quote a post with pictures and commentary that is not relevant to your reply, just click on the photo and click delete. To delete text, just block it and click delete. Add your reply language and send. To reply to multiple posts at one time, use the "+" that is to the left of the "Quote". That will drop each quoted post into one reply. Then delete any extraneous photos/text. Back to the trip to Bermuda.
  10. Can you share the disclosure info you found? I cancelled and rebooked on December 7 and didn't have this issue (although it was handled by my TA). I ended up paying a $35 fee. I didn't think the "Non-Refundable Deposit" became a big thing until the recent Set Sail (or whatever it is called) Promotion which is only a month or so old. But I could be wrong.
  11. Spencer is another widely-used operator on St. Lucia, which we are booked with for the second time. As others have said, their business is their (and their employees) livelihood. I'm sure there is also a mutual agreement among the various boat/van operators to assist each other if problems arise. Go and enjoy!! I haven't booked through the ship for 25 years.
  12. Nevermind, wrong thread.
  13. but he will remember you....😉 I live in Middlesex NJ, just down the mountain from Warren. Enjoying your and Iain's newest escapade!
