    Car Rental Shuttle Tampa

    From my recollection of the ride over, I believe there are sidewalks. To be sure you could use Google Maps Street View and "walk it" yourself ahead of time! 🙂 Theron

    How to edit Custom Streams?

    Thanks! I hadn't seen that. The left-most icon is a pencil, which let me edit the title, which is all I needed to do! Theron
  3. I set up a couple of Custom Streams under the Activity tab, My Activity Streams option. I need to edit the settings, or if not possible, then delete them and recreate them. Cannot find the procedure for either of those two options. Theron

    I mentioned it in the post-cruise survey! Theron

    Brilliance of the Seas Oct 1-6

    Just found this review, and I can confirm your observations. I also made the assumption that something was broken. This was my first cruise on a Radiance class ship, and by far the worst one for smoke spilling out of the Casino into the Centrum area. It was quite annoying. Theron

    Royal - Labadee Earthquake

    From the USGS map, it appears that the epicenter of the earthquake was 50 miles west northwest of Labadee. Theron

    Short Brilliance Review 10/1-10/6

    I got off the ship about 9:30, and it wasn't very crowded. Right after I got there, they made an announcement and people started showing up. They did not implement a ticket scheme, so that tells me that they probably don't expect long delays normally. Theron

    Car Rental Shuttle Tampa

    My plan with Hertz went fine as well. Picked up at TPA, dropped off the next morning at the Marriott Waterside (700 South Florida Ave). One interesting note, they didn't actually have a shuttle on-site, they used the car I had just returned to run me over to the port. To return at this particular hotel, you just pull up to the Valet Parking in front of the hotel and tell them you are dropping off a Hertz rental. They held the car right there while I went in and took care of the paperwork. An observation: The hotel staff told me that it was likely they would use the car to shuttle me, so it is apparently not uncommon. So if you have multiple people in your party (I sailed alone, so I did not) it may be a good idea to just leave the luggage in the car (while your party keeps an eye on it) while one person goes upstairs to turn in the paperwork. If they're going to use the same car, no sense in unloading all the luggage just to have to load it all back in the car again! Also, apparently the hotel moves the Hertz desk around from time to time. Theron

    Short Brilliance Review 10/1-10/6

    Thanks for posting your review! I also enjoyed the cruise very much! Theron
  10. For the October 1st sailing (5 nights to Grand Cayman and Cozumel) formal night was the first day at sea, which was Day 2. Theron
  11. I just got off Brilliance this morning, and our second seating dinner was 8:00 PM each night of the cruise. We sailed the 5 night Grand Cayman / Cozumel itinerary. Theron

    Current Captains Continued

    Yes, I know that. But the first Captains thread was deleted. That is why I suggested that if you plan to delete the prior thread (that is currently closed), you should say so, to give people a chance to retrieve any useful information in that thread that they might want to keep. Theron

    Current Captains Continued

    Hi Michell, If you plan to delete the old thread like the first one, it would probably be a good idea to say so, to give people a heads up that they need to go back and pull any information they might want to save. Theron

    Tampa to Miami on Monday morning?

    I was going to say, that's a whole new twist on a back-to-back! :D One more suggestion, make sure you have lots of traffic reporting resources at your disposal to help with any possible on-the-fly reroutes that might be needed! Theron
