  1. We have looked and looked for a GOOD photo of the FAMILY Cabana on the Nieuw Statendam. We have heard all the negatives about this cabana, but have seen no actual photos of it, just side views and partial views where you can make nothing out. If anyone has a good clear photo, we would appreciate it if you would post it here.
  2. They did, and it was being looked into, but they said that they could not confirm where they ( the thieves) went. It was a shame, but lets face it..most experienced cruisers would not put something like that outside their cabin. I did make another when I got home, and mailed it to them. So they were fine. I hoped that the people that removed it would get home to find it broken in their suitcase 😈
  3. The secret to NOT having door signs stolen is to make them “ personal” . other than kids, most adults are not going to take something off your door that has your name, face or even a sketch of your face. years ago, I made small stained glass pumpkins for our group. A new cruiser put it on their door. some THIEF stole it the first day. Sad.
  4. Oh I know lines lol and they all have what I consider to be weak tea. and on Cunard.. they do have good teas, and in a pinch I can manage, but why settle for something that I really do not care for? It is easier just to take my own. Although Lapsang Souchong is popular, I do not care for it....so back to carrying my own.🙄 but I appreciate your suggestion.
  5. What an interesting thread! I am a Brit living in the USA. I love my tea! I carry my own tea bags when traveling. I do not trust cruise ship tea, and American tea is weak. I drink “ lifeboat tea”. A part of the proceeds goes to the lifeboat society in England. Fortunately I can purchase the tea through Amazon. so when cruising I pack enough for three cups per day..plus a few extra for “ just in case” The original reason for adding the milk to the cup first is because the cups were often porcelain. You did not want to pour boiling water
  6. "Stout is a dark beer.." not according to my countrymen 😁 Tom, are you the "Tom O" that shares such amazing info on ships? the Tom I am looking for is a librarian.
  7. To set the record straight. "My favorite beer is Guinness" Guinness is not beer, it is STOUT :)
  8. Amber cove 27 falls 27 Charcos Not for the faint hearted.. We were looking for an excursion while in port at Amber Cove, jan 2019, and near the taxi stand we saw a flyer for “27 falls”. It showed a pool, waterfall and a ladder. OK, it looked great and easy to do... even at my age I can visualize myself climbing down the ladder and swimming around. So off we went. I think the entry fee was $12 pp. and the taxi to get there.. about $50 Once there they provide a locker ($2) and a life vest ($2) and watershoes ($2).
