    Cool Cruiser
  1. Onyx was our 'first' and favorite. The only band who's cd I bought. It's in the car and takes me away whenver I need a 'virtual cruise'. 'xtasy' i think was actually 'xtasea' (get it, sea?). Here is a link for a video I took of a performer on Constellation. Pretty good guitar man: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3j-kDvZsiuU
  2. Regardless of what your personal justification might be, valid or invalid, for taking anything like this with you, I think the smarter decision, in light of recent events, is to leave it behind. Thats my opinion, and what I would do personally.
  3. If I want a cruise in review video, I'd probably rather do my own. I realize you would expect the 'pros' to do a good job, but I'd be willing to bet the video people on the ship have no clue about 'the rule of thirds', couldn't white balance if their job depended on it, and are clueless about what a 'dutch angle' really is. AS for the hand written label, if they dont have the right equipment, putting on a paper label could cause more (playback) problems than it is worth. IMO.
  4. Not True. Initially, true, but once you tell someone not to call you they need to honor your request. The following is found at the web address I provided above, as an answer to FAQ #31 "unless you ask the company not to call again. In that case, the company must honor your request not to call. If they subsequently call you again, they may be subject to a fine of up to $16,000 ." OOPS, correction to the url, the information can be found here: http://www.ftc.gov/bcp/edu/pubs/consumer/alerts/alt107.shtm
  5. Perhaps this is overly simplistic, but have you ever considering just not answering? What does caller id say? Another approach is to warn her about the 'do not call' rules, and sugggest that the FTC may be notified if the calls continue. https://www.donotcall.gov/
  6. Being elite makes someone an authority? Interesting. We did not notice any flagrant disregard for smoking/non smoking areas on our recent Crown cruise.
  7. We had a seafood buffet on 11/7 aboard the Crown.
  8. Me Too! On the other hand, greetings!, and happy holidays. Lyn and I recently returned from a 7-day (unfortunately not on Celebrity this time :( )...Almost any cruise is a good cruise though! Hope all is well.
  9. The location of that computer in the adjoining RS will not have any impact on your ability to access wi fi in your cabin (plus or minus). The in-room computers are are hard wired to the network.
  10. On our recent cruise. Left the door open while smoking was happening on the balcony. No smoke smell inside the cabin. Cabin was aft. YMMV ... I'm jst sayin... (before anyone shoots this down with the 'how sensitive' argument, DW is very sensitive to smoke, and easily succumbs to bronchitis, so, if there was an impact, she would have known!)...
  11. In addition to the $20/person, you will also be charged for whatever baggage fees the airlines add on. This fee shows up on you ship account, and is collected by the cruise line .. at least this was the case on our recently completed Crown cruise. Also, we didnt touch or see our bags again until picking them up at baggage claim in DTW... Put them out in the hall the night before and didnt have to mess with it until landing at home ... cool ... but, YMMV.
  12. Can be seen here: http://travel.webshots.com/slideshow/575549197CxOcyC The last two pictures are of the brand new Oasis of the Seas, from RCL, at the dock in Port Everglades. Now classified as the largest cruise ship in the world. Corrrect, no Rocky Horror at MUTS on this cruise. We saw Star Trek XI.
