  1. That's obvious. I was hoping to elicit some sense of the priority of fixing the CC App. Presumably if there is a queue there is some measure of where we fit. I worked in software development, I know that critical jobs move to the front. But our host should be able to get an estimate of the schedule.
  2. Gee, I had been thinking that the developer must have been furloughed because of the Covid shutdowns. It must be a mighty hard problem to solve if the developer has really been working on it for at least four months without success. 🤔
  3. CC Help Jenn posted in October that they knew the Android CC App was broken and were working on a solution. Is there any idea when this will be fixed ?
  4. Hmmm... I see your point. Could lead to a third degree session. Here's an alternative. Since it's waterproof, it could become the MiniMagFlask, holding a couple ounces of spirits for a quick nip.
  5. Lose the batteries. You now have an indestructible waterproof HAL pill case.
  6. Within the last few days the my Cruise Critic Android app has stopped working. On both a Samsung tablet and a Pixel smartphone it starts up and then crashes. Sometimes just blinking away, sometimes with an error message "Network error, please try again later. (get_forum | Cruise Critic)". This is even more aggravating than always having to log in twice to get to my subscribed Holland America forum.
  7. Two memories of the same ship. Was the 2nd class pool still there? Sail away was more memorable in 1960. Sent from my SM-T720 using Forums mobile app
  8. P&O SS Arcadia. San Francisco to Manila. July 25 to August 17, 1960. For me it was a cruise, but it was transportation for my parents. Back before air travel was common. There was a cohort of English, on subsidized emigration to Australia. Second class was not luxurious, but we had a lot of promenade space. 24 days for $431 each.

  9. Last night we were watching "On the Waterfront" and I thought I recognized an old HAL funnel. A later scene showed the signage of Holland America Line in the background. Turns out it was filmed on the Hoboken Waterfront in 1953 or 54. What was the ship? Must have been the Ryndam or Maasdam, sisters. Three clips from the film, and then the full length photo is the Ryndam. (If I can upload them.) Sent from my SM-T720 using Forums mobile app
  10. Hey, those who want to talk about the Alaska cruise season might start a thread on that. This one is about the PVSA.
  11. I came across this blog post about the need to reform the PVSA. This is the regulation that requires cruises from the US to stop at a foreign port. https://www.cato.org/blog/cruise-industry-bailout-washington-should-give-repeal-passenger-vessel-services-act This seems to be part of a larger effort by Cato that is mainly to reform the Jones Act - which does the same for cargo ships. https://www.cato.org/project-jones-act-reform
  12. Vesselfinder shows Amsterdam has two tenders in the water.
  13. Amsterdam seems to be taking the long way around to Jakarta.
  14. According to Captain Albert's blog, the current captain is Werner Timmers
  15. Is the ship being positioned just by the thrusters ? Tug is not doing anything. Where does that line off the bow go ?
