  1. Very much enjoyed your Churchill War Rooms photos. We visited them in 2000, before the Museum section was added. I'm a big history buff, and it was one of the must sees the first time we went to London.
  2. Enjoyed your Thames River cruise photos. We did a similar cruise out to the Thames Barrier on our first trip to London in 2000. The skyline sure has changed a lot since then.
  3. Thanks for that tip. I haven't been able to include the photos from my most recent cruise because of the new signature restriction. I'll have to try your solution. And I also need to go and read your latest review. They are always terrific.
  4. I checked my calendar this morning and it said "Norris Celebrity Norwegian Cruise". So I mosey on over to the Celebrity board, and lo and behold, there it is. I've pulled a deck chair up to the railing and I'm ready to sail the Fjords. ( I hope you found Polly Parrot while you were there. I heard she was pinning for them.)
  5. I don't recall a Music Trivia on our sailing. We only went to one trivia on this cruise. It was just general trivia and was held at Billboard Onboard. It seemed to me that there were very few trivia sessions held. That may be because this cruise was port and scenery intensive.
  6. We had a 32 inch TV in our inside cabin. There was no DVD player. We didn't watch any movies, but I did browse through the On Demand catalog and it was quite extensive. Sorry, we didn't use the sauna facilities.
  7. First cruise, how exciting! I've been on 18 now, and each one still feels special. I highly recommend you go see "Humanity", which is a production show in the main showroom. It's held on the second day of your cruise and is very good. We also really enjoyed Billboard Onboard. We don't normally like piano bars, but this was different. We listened to them almost every night. The BB King Blues Club was very good as well. Have a great cruise!
  8. You're quite welcome. I always search out recent dailies for the cruises I go on, and I like helping out others who are looking for the same. Hope you all have a great cruise. We had a wonderful time on the Eurodam.
  9. Sorry, we didn't play bingo, so I can't help you much. I did walk by Billboard Onboard once while bingo was in session. The numbers board was shown on all the TV screens scattered around the lounge. But as for prices and cards vs electronic I can't help you there.
  10. There were no mechanical problems on our cruise. We arrived at every port on time, with no issues at all. I did feel a bit of a vibration when standing all the way aft by the Sea View Pool when the ship was sailing at full speed. But I didn't feel it was anything particularly unusual. Our cabin, 4170, was almost at the rear of the ship, and I never felt any strong vibration there. Hope this helps.
  11. You're welcome. I'm glad you found them useful. Enjoy your cruise on the Oosterdam.
  12. This was my first cruise on HAL, and I knew nothing about the Orange Party until I saw it listed in the When & Where. I didn't go to it, but I did see them placing orange balloons all around the BB King Blues Club as we walked by. Enjoy your cruise. We had a great time on the Eurodam.
  13. My wife and I just returned from an Alaska cruise on the Eurodam. I've scanned the daily "When & Where" activity guides for that cruise. I hope that some people who will be sailing on the Eurodam this summer will find it useful. Here's the link:
  14. Thanks for the tip. I'll start that one when I'm finished with the Eclipse review. I'm also following along with your current Dream review. They're both wonderful. You have a great knack for writing, and your photos are terrific.
