  1. Since the topic is Lifeboats I have a question that I have thought about several times. If a passenger shows up at the lifeboat with Fifi, the ankle snapper, in their arms, will Fifi be allowed to board? If allowed to board, would Fifi be counted as one of the 150 passenger limit? Or if passenger gets loud and nasty trying to assert their Rights, will they both be set aside to stop the blockage of loading? Bob
  2. Our first 3 cruises were with RCL. That ended at the 3rd cruise. We arrived at port and being a gentleman I let my Wife sign in first. Now at that time she was listed in our Cabin as my guest. She laid down her passport and reservation papers. Was given her sea pass. No problem. My turn. I lay down my pass port and reservation papers. The clerk fiddles a few minutes and then tells me "Sorry sir we are booked full, so you can not purchase a cabin, please step Back" Say what I say. Long story short It took three different employees and many phone calls for them to let me on
  3. Ahh, lets think about this. Of course, the Good Ship LollyPop.
  4. It is not always weather that causes flight delays. It can be something so simple you would not even consider possible. Case in Point. We arrived the normal two hours early to watch the airlines move the people from another gate to our gate and board the plane scheduled for us. Then the announcement that moved us over the that other gate. At the same time the 30 minute delay notice went up on the flight board. The airlines kept up dating the flight board with another 30 minute delay. A Airline employee who was waiting to fly on the plane with us was sitting next to us. After 3
  5. A few years ago, my Wife's high school reunion planning committee decided that going on a cruise would be more fun that a dinner dance at the local golf club. Up to that time I had no desire to be locked up on a little boat way out on the water. After much "discussion" from my Wife I reluctantly agreed to go. It was a cruise down the Mexican Coast for 7 days. As I walked up the gang plank, um wasn't a plank that was used to force people off the ship in mid ocean?, I turned around for a last look at dry land. 🤢 Fast forward a few years. We now have 17 cruises under our belt with n
  6. My plan to have fun with the Medallion is take a water glass and sit in on the self in the bathroom and place the medallion in it. Then each morning when I get up early to take photos of the Sun Rise from back of ship to take Medallion with me. Then immediately return it to the shelf. Do this the entire cruise.. Then let the data collection geek add that information to his spread sheet. Part B of this plan is to follow the wife when she unlocks the cabin door so I can get back in. Part C of this plan. Of course I will have to take the Medallion with me to leave and return to sh
  7. Ref Escargot in Dining Room. On our 29 cruise on the Emerald, 4 Nov to 3 Dec, it was offered once on the 2nd leg, Fla to LA, and it was poorly prepared. The little cup was half full of a mystery liquid and the top had no taste. Another noted item. It took 3 days for the Mini Bar to appear in our room, even after 3 phone calls to room service. Then instead of a mixture of little bottles, it was all Dry Gin. Took another two days to get that exchanged and I had to call the Passenger Service desk to get the exchange. Generally speaking, because food is subjective, we found most of
