  1. Thanks for sharing. Glad to see the artichoke soup is still on the menu.
  2. It's a box fan we got at Walgreens for around $10. The size is about 12" square by 3" deep. It does not take up too much room in the suitcase. If you are looking for one, now's the time to get one (end of season). Hope this helps
  3. Fun thread. We always travel with a picture of the "kids" (see profile photo), their first toy, and a travel fan - have to have the noise it generates.
  4. Thank you for the wonderful and useful information. Exactly what I have been looking for to help me maximize my time onboard our upcoming cruise in April. QQ - By any chance did you do the Behind the Scene's Tour? (The tour that usually includes the Galley, Engine Control Room, Bridge, etc. on other ships) Just curious if the Tour is like the tours on Solstice Class ships. Thanks again, really appreciate the information. Doug
  5. Nancy: Thanks for all your hard work and great information you are providing. Had two quick questions I hope you can help with: 1) Do they offer a "Behind the Scenes" tour of the ship like they do on Solstice Class? I see the "Backstage" tour in our cruise planner, but I am looking for the one that goes to the Galley, Engine Room, Bridge, etc. 2) Are you aware of anyone that has posted the Dailies for the Eastern Caribbean cruise? I have tried to search, but cannot find anything. We are sailing in an S1 Aft, so the information you shared really helped so we know what to expect vs what we thought from the marketing materials. Thanks again for your help and assistance. Doug
  6. Thank you for all your hard work getting us the great information. Truly appreciate it. Hope you have a wonderful holiday season... Doug
  7. I often create a Roll Call summary in MS Word for our Roll Call. Once I have it ready, I copy / paste it to create the post. For some odd reason, the last copy / paste I created is hanging around on the "clipboard" (I guess that's what it is called). As a result, when I go to post a reply or create a post to the thread I have to delete the last Roll Call summary I created. (NOTE: this "clipboard" issue appears on both my desktop and laptop computer. I created the post on the desktop computer, but odd it is impacting both - right???) Any ideas on how to clear this from the CC "clipboard"? Thanks for the help and suggestions. Always great advice from the Community. Doug
  8. I'm getting used to the new version and really like the new features. It will take some getting use to, but I think we all will get there. Have a question that may have been asked, but can't find it - so please forgive me if this is a duplicate. I noticed we have a "storage space allotment" with the new version. Is there a list of what counts against the allotment? I believe the following, but is there anything else? Pictures Attachments In reference to pictures, I assume this applies to pictures posted directly to the site (where we "drag and drop from our Desktop for example) and not pictures hosted on another site? If so, are there suggestions for reducing the size of the "file", e.g., jpg vs a different format? Are we able to delete attachments from old posts? OR, will the entire post have to be deleted? (If so, guess this will impact our post count??) I have posts dating back years where I shared a Packing List, etc., that really is no longer needed and does not need to consume server storage. Thanks for all your hard work on the upgrade. Also, thanks to all the Cruise Critic members for the great information sharing. I am learning a lot. Doug
  9. Ahh, I missed this post. That explains a lot. So, will we be able to use BBCode with the new version?
  10. Thanks for posting this. I am having the same issue and wonder what the resolution is. I used the Bulletin Board Code (provided in the prior version, but can't seem to locate the page in the new version) to create my Roll Call Updates offline. Once I had the post ready, I would copy it over to the reply for posting. Made it a lot easier to get the update pulled together vs trying to draft and "reformat" each time I posted the update. Hopefully there is a quick and easy resolution...
  11. Good to shop around, from what I understand policy "provisions" can vary state-to-state so it is worth it to take the time to read the policy. Our main focus is emergency evacuation coverage, as well as supplementing medical coverage (since our domestic insurance policies do not provide coverage outside the US). We have recently started using Nationwide. One item that was unique / beneficial was the impact of Hurricane Irma and provision for itinerary change - pre-departure. Celebrity changed our itinerary from Key West to Jamaica one week before the cruise. The policy had a provision that if the itinerary was change before departure we received reimbursement of $750 pp ($1,500). Great surprise. It is worth it to do your research and compare the policy provisions. Also focus on timing of when things have to be paid, etc. If I am not mistaken, there are a couple of articles on the Cruise Critic main sight you might want to look at. Happy sailing.
