  1. Thanks and sounds like the baby monitor trick the way to go
  2. Curious if anyone knows the outputs on the TV’s on the Noordam???? Trying to find out if it has a standard headphone jack or RCA outs? Two reasons... first the hubby likes using his wireless headphones when watching TV and I’m sleeping Second and the real reason I want to know is we have a aft balcony so want to hear the broadcasts when in GlacierBay... thought is instead of his headphones we can pair to a Bluetooth speaker for that... So????? Any thoughts on the TV options???? Yes I know some just leave the balcony door open and say they can hear fine... others have commented about using baby monitors... I’m trying to use what we have that’s small and we own plus has multiple purposes
  3. Related? Taquan Air had another accident this time killing the pilot and passanger (source: https://www.foxnews.com/us/two-dead-in-second-floatplane-crash-involving-taquan-air-officials-say.amp)
  4. Was curious so checked our cruise in September and premium and 1 day pricing offered... just under $112 for our 7 day. At the moment I'm going to attempt to stay offline while onboard... I may crumble but that’s the plan
  5. Not sure on pricing but the cabanas do sell out... so if you see you might want to grab advice I got was to buy and if price goes down you can cancel and redo... especially on internet and drink packages sales happen and at different times for each ship/itinerary ... there are typically Black Friday sales on the grandeur in Nov I just booked internet at $13.99 and refreshment beverage (nonalcoholic) at $20. I also redid our balloon excursion on CoCoCay which saves me $10 each... was considering chill island cabana as a splurge but sold out
  6. Yep my Y1L showing SOLDOUT in August and it had lots of availability a couple of days ago.... something is weird for sure
  7. Hubby likes to be cautious so we will have some Canadian currency for the just in case or wall item purchase instances... I hear both sides... those that say not needed...others who think you should....
  8. The larger plane was reported as being Taquan Air ... no word yet on the smaller plane from the independent tour... (source:https://www.ktuu.com/content/news/Authorities-working-to-rescue-victims-of-two-float-plane-crashes-near-Ketchikan-509872001.html)
  9. Helpful as we continue planning for our triple in August
  10. Dang that is exactly what my hubby wants... but we already have another trip planned during that tome I can’t move.... grrrrrrrr
  11. Yep we did buy it today at our local photo shop for $549! I’m excited now to play with it... note this pricing expires May 12th hubby still thinks the Nikkor lens is sharper based on his reviews he read but the extra reach and the price drop won us over...
  12. Hubby has been considering the Tamron 18-400 for our Alaska cruise . Noticed last night that Tamron has s $100 instant savings promotion going on... see http://www.tamron-usa.com/product/lenses/b028.html. Wanted to pass that info on as like most of you need to save where I can We are still going back and forth between this lense and the Nikkor 18-300 for his Nikon D7200 any thoughts which one we should get????
  13. Ohhhhh huge thanks as there is something I want that never goes on sale.... perfect!
  14. Seriously watching this as it might affect our Alaska cruise this year.... you would think the judge would look at the overall economic impact on the states and the ports... one thing saying about banning from US ports is that it makes headlines and grabs everyone’s attention following and hoping ....
