  1. You actually will not turn Diamond until you have completed this cruise.
  2. Unless and until Royal comes out and says that Diamond vouchers cannot be shared, which they have not yet done, it is perfectly ethical to do so.
  3. Steamed broccoli. They never give you enough veggies so this became a standard order. Of course, they brought a big platter of it but I shared.
  4. You can always order more and I often have. Of course, then you get a big platter of veggies but they’re good for you.
  5. They haven’t had the wine packages in years.
  6. And if they are caught doing that they can be fined or even put off the ship at the next port. Not worth it IMO.
  7. You don’t need to reserve a time, but just like in a regular restaurant if a lot of people want to eat at the same time you do there may be a wait without a reservation.
  8. In addition to this good advice, you would also run the risk of there being no more life boat room for cabins in your area - just because a cabin is rated for three does not mean that the ship can still accommodate three at sailing time.
  9. And remember, people were drinking the ship’s water for many years before anyone thought to drink bottled water. I did then and still do.
  10. Not sure how much time you will want to spend on your balcony. We went in August and the only time we used the balcony was to view the glacier. Fortunately, being from NJ, had lots of cold weather gear, although I did purchase ear muffs while there. It rained almost every day so a warm hooded slicker was a must.
  11. This is what I do. Been cruising since before anyone used bottled water and have never had a problem with the ship’s water. Probably more pure than most bottled stuff.
  12. This is what I was taught to do in rehab after my hip replacement.
  13. It’s not a question of offending anyone. Vegans are not forced to ingest meat while non-smokers are forced to ingest smoke from nearby smokers. Huge difference.
  14. Not only do I believe this would never happen, I foresee a ban on smoking in the casino (kind of difficult to smoke and wear a mask).
  15. While I can’t imagine wanting to iron ever, this is still not allowed. So many other ways to remove wrinkles, why chance it.
  16. Dining room meals only when the dining room is serving them.
  17. I’m 74 and a recent widow so pretty much did the same. I usually have my cousin and his family (about 8 people) but decided to not do that this year. I had three of my fellow cat breeder friends come on Saturday, two of whom live alone and work from home and the third also lives alone but has had the virus and gets tested weekly for her job). I had a free turkey from my super market so roasted that and everyone brought something. Since they are not having cat shows now where we usually get together and we live 2-4 hours apart, it was great to visit for the day.
  18. That’s the report I saw. On the upside , all of the crew tested negative.
  19. True, but one would think that a simple search was done on the proposed trademark prior to spending the money to file an application (one of my tasks in the 43+ years I spent in IP law).
  20. Big difference between a patent or a trademark. Can still take years to clear the USPTO but they can use it in the meantime.
  21. I think I read something like this, like if the other person is elderly the FCC could be transferred to someone else.
  22. If you purchase now the rate is locked in for you. If it goes down you can cancel and rebook.
  23. Won a cruise in review tape once. Glad I hadn’t paid for it as it was mainly stock footage. Did win $250 on a quarter slot before the casino became a smoking lounge.
