  1. They are Plastic enclosed in paper. Hubby just came off a cruise a bit over 1 month ago and that's what he was offered. Joanie
  2. After reading yours and KirkNC's Post I have been trying to fix my font and sizes so that I can read it as well as make everyone as happy as possible:) So let's see how this is. Bold, Comic Sans MS, 20, Black. Hope this helps EDIT: When I preview my post it looks good. All of the coding is correct and shows correctly. However, when I hit Submit.... it reverts to the normal CC coding. I give up:( Joanie
  3. It has been asked several times every year on Cruise Critic on every Cruise Line if anyone from the Cruise Lines (read Corporate Big Wigs) ever listen to us, the paying passengers. Well here is an answer that tells me that they sure as heck do, from USA TODAY "Carnival Cruise Line delays plan to charge for more room service after backlash" https://www.yahoo.com/news/carnival-cruise-line-delays-plan-140823320.html Joanie
  4. Not looking at the AIS right now, but am sure that IF you were awake right now you might be able to see the lights of Port Everglades and Ft Lauderdale. What does that mean? It means 1 more day before you are home and sharing the Steak photos!!! Is the steak as big as the 72oz steak at that place in Amarillo? The one that if you eat it all it is free? On the few staterooms that did not get the sensors due to lack of 42 inches.....What is the 42 inches? Is it from floor to Night Stand or ??? Joanie
  5. Ah Ha!! Here when our Military, including National Guard do not notify us. Only way we know something is happening is when we hear the Choppers and jets (F-15's or 16's?) OK, I'm using you're post as a Test of POA's instructions on Multi-Quoting. So here goes....... It works!!! Thanks Brian:)
  6. OK, I have tried the Multi Quote for your post and both of Copper10-8's replies to me, but all I see is yours.... I do not like this new forum... OK so for both you and Copper10-8 Thank you for your insights. I thought it was some sort of clandestine event due to no markings whatsoever. I also noticed that they carried something large on to the Chopper. I guess that was some of the equipment and you've clarified it for me. Thanks Guys!! We learn many things from cruise critic members:) Joanie
  7. OK, So while watching the departure yesterday, December 11, 2018, of the Konigsdam from Ft Lauderdale there were 2 choppers that came in and landed for a couple minutes at the complex across from the Condos. I have a couple of questions. 1. Am I the only one that noticed there were absolutely no markings on them? No Nothing............ (4 SNAPS ATTACHED) 2. I would think they might be on a clandestine mission, but in full daylight with hundreds, possibly thousands watching and recording? 3. Any thoughts???
  8. Hi Maureen. I am at home reading along with everyone else:) I came to a harsh realization that I can no longer fly due to my Hypoxia (8.000ft is my limit) higher than that I literally cannot breath, so........ I was willing to fly anyway, come what may, until HAL made their new smoking policy......... So that made it perfect for me to retire from my only vacation love:( I am adamant that Roger continue cruising and enjoying his time away from being my Care Giver. After all, he deserves a break from me every few months in order to keep his sanity:) Joanie
  9. Good to hear you are enjoying the cruise honey:) FYI...My Christmas present arrived today and all I can say is, "YUMMY!!!"
  10. I thought she'd been sold...I'm confused...If she has been sold why would they send her to dry dock? Joanie
  11. According to Wikipedia https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=8&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=2ahUKEwjJ54P2ka_dAhXhhlQKHfryC_kQFjAHegQICxAB&url=https%3A%2F%2Fen.wikipedia.org%2Fwiki%2FDaniel_K%25C3%25BCblb%25C3%25B6ck&usg=AOvVaw2uoDh6eCg8KGi6m-vC0P9Y 3rd paragraph down: Disappearance 2018 Küblböck was reported missing on 9 September 2018. He was attending an AIDA cruise on the AIDAluna from Hamburg to New York City. He was wearing women's clothing all the time. According to AIDA, a passenger was reported going overboard at 6 in the morning. German tabloid Bild reported that an eyewitness saw someone jump from deck 5 of the ship. Therefore, the Canadian coast guard started a search operation, with the MS Zuiderdam on site and assisting. Joanie
  12. Yahoo News Headline: "For crew of 2,100-passenger cruise ship, frenetic ‘turnaround day’ in Seattle starts and ends the journey" QUOTE: "It may be a leisurely 7-day vacation cruise for passengers, but for the staff it begins with a race to load 147,500 pounds of fresh produce, 35,000 eggs and more, while cleaning hundreds of rooms and properly delivering 8,000 pieces of luggage." UNQUOTE FULL STORY HERE https://www.seattletimes.com/business/cruise-turnaround-feature/ Joanie
  13. This is from my last Alaska cruise on Zuiderdam, September 2011. He was one of the Assistant Dining Room Managers ( I believe he said 3rd Dining Room Manager. At that time he was located on Deck 2's Dining Room. Here he is in his Uniform. I asked him why he was not going by the name we all knew him as previously, his reply was that in order to move up in ranks, he had to use his real name because "Hunky Dory" just was not professional sounding. Joanie
  14. Just watched the Endicott Arms and Hubbard's Glacier:) LOVED seeing such a great pic of my Hubby:) Thank you for that. He hates it when I used to try and get one of him... Absolutely Gorgeous pics:) Thank you for sharing!! Now to wait somewhat patiently to see more:) Joanie
