  1. My son is a California firefighter and I am trying to figure out how to get him a cruise--that's why I'm on this thread. If you hear anything, will you please post? Someone I know called X and was told to call back on Monday, but given the inaccuracy of their on-shore staff, that sounds like a waste of time to me without a specific department or person to ask for. Thanks for any advice!
  2. Well if you see a really pretty blonde girl and a good looking tall dark-haired guy, in wrinkled clothes, say hi from me! 🤣 Thanks, Cathy
  3. I don’t know exactly what it looks like, but she said it was large and will probably be very visible. But I appreciate the reassurance that they’ll get it back!
  4. Thanks, do you know where they go to pick them up?
  5. Hi All: My daughter and her boyfriend are in Miami preparing to board Navigator of the Seas tomorrow. She just mentioned to me that they brought a steamer and a power strip with them! Sure wish they would’ve asked me about that first. Does anybody have any experience with this? I assume that if they spot them on the x-ray that they will confiscate them and return them the last night of the cruise but I’m looking for anyone with personal experience with this issue. Is there any possibility that they will confiscate them and not return them? I’ve never heard that but I want to double check for them. Any thoughts appreciated! thanks!
  6. Sadly, that’s not ‘odd’ at all. More like the norm.
  7. Talk about watching the ship sail away. . . Three years ago while we were on Silhouette, my husband had a heart attack while we were docked in Rhodes, Greece. We were whisked off the ship post haste (I was given 10 minutes to pack up all our belongings including retrieving the laundry we had sent out that morning) and we went by ambulance to the nearest hospital. When the port agent came to take me to a hotel, I could see the beautiful Silhouette, all lit up, sailing toward the horizon. Saddest thing I’d ever seen. . . But! It turned out to be a minor heart attack although they kept him in the ICU for a week. We ended up spending 10 days on Rhodes, came to love it, and actually look back on that time as just another crazy adventure! We have fond memories and laugh about it a lot!!
  8. This is funny. Yesterday a friend asked DH when our trip was. I just laughed. No way would know the dates, perhaps might know departure MONTH!
