  1. I was checking prices and noticed that the Enchantment of the Seas is missing from schedules between October 20th and Nov 14th. I don't see her listed on what limited dry dock schedules I find. Anyone know where she is going during this time?
  2. I'm lucky enough that I can work from home if need be. If our workplace instituted this idea, I'd try to take a cruise every 3 weeks.
  3. No "forward" door on Indy. It's been a while since I've been on a Freedom class, but on the Voyager class, there is a door in the forward lounge on the Starboard side that leads out near the helipad. Picture is of Indy.
  4. Until now, health officials said they'd hoped to prevent community spread in the United States. But following community transmissions in Italy, Iran and South Korea, health officials believe the virus may not be able to be contained at the border and that Americans should prepare for a "significant disruption." https://abcnews.go.com/International/coronavirus-live-updates-cdc-warns-americans-significant-disruption/story?id=69190968
  5. ABC news: "So far, 14,000 people have died and 250,000 people have been hospitalized during the 2019-2020 flu season, according to preliminary estimates from the CDC."
  6. I was travelling to Vegas in November '19 and I had heard that all status matches reset on Oct 1. I had a match back in 2017 and wanted to see if they would re-match. I emailed on Oct 16th, received the generic "We will check with RCI and get back to you in 24-48 hours" message the same day, had no response so I replied on Oct 25th, and they responded on Oct 25th and applied my match. Overall I saved $10 for parking in the garage for one day. 😄
  7. DANGIT! I'm one of those who doesn't drink alcohol, we just got off of Explorer four days ago, and now they release this. Guess I'll have something to look forward to on the next cruise (which we have to reschedule).
  8. There will be a little overhead, but I think the bigger consideration is how many devices you connect. I think this method is ok for adding in one or two more devices where you are just checking email, but don't expect to get a whole family on it that is streaming videos.
  9. Just back from Explorer - phone still in airplane mode, logged into WiFi on my phone, turned on the hotspot feature, and my wife was able to connect her phone and her tablet to my hotspot and access the internet. Now the connection was as slow as dial-up but that is due to the speed available on the ship, not the hotspot. I have a Google Pixel 3a running Android 10.
  10. Keep the ship in good shape, I board in two days! 🙂
  11. 6305 - Ben and Jerry's "Sweet", same price and comes with some extra perks.
  12. We're leaving on Explorer in 2 days on our first Diamond cruise. The DW and I will share our two free 24 hour sessions spread out through the week. I'll give the WiFi sharing a try and let you know the results.
  13. I've only been on Monarch, but yes the showers are smaller than the "tiny" round ones. Keep anything you don't want wet outside of the bathroom and leave the curtain open.
  14. Thanks for the suggestion - I can share WiFi on my Pixel 3a. Saves me from having to buy the travel router that I was looking at.
  15. Did self disembark on Empress this past April. They will have you wait in the theater, enter on Starboard side, you will disembark through the Port side. People would come in and place their luggage in line and then sit in a nearby seat. You could go in early, drop luggage, have one or two people wait with the bags as the others run up to Windjammer to grab some food and then swap people. Overall, traffic wasn't too horrible when we got back on a Sunday (and we also went to FLL). We just called a Lyft when we got there but there was only two of us so it was easier to get whatever car was available.
