  1. I see this a lot. Being "connected" seems to "disconnect" from family at times....
  2. Is that two days or WiFi or just two days internet access on the ship's computers? We do the same thing on the ship's computers but never thought of using the WiFi.
  3. Yeah, I'm getting the feeling everyone will need wifi on the ship eventually. Then maybe the prices will drop? LOL
  4. No worries.... Ah, the ol' 3000 email pile up. I hated those. Not so bad now that I'm retired. The biggest pile ups now are junk mail.
  5. Who said I was worrying about you? I was just trying to start an interesting conversation. Sheeez
  6. We've done that too. Sallie needs to check in on her 94 year old mother on occasion. Sometimes she will get the phone out of the safe to call her from a port where calls would be included on our plan (IE: USVI).
  7. I use an inexpensive point & shoot camera that's smaller and fits in my pocket better than my phone. It also has a mechanical zoom lens that is better for distance shots than my phone would handle well. Otherwise, the phone actually takes as good as or better pictures than the point & shoot.
  8. There is so much talk about wifi availability, costs, etc. on these threads, it amazes me that there is such a need (or desire) for wifi while cruising. I do understand however, the need to stay in touch with relatives in special cases, etc. I can understand needing to stay in touch on long cruises, family issues or even work for the younger folks still working. Personally, we like to lock up our phones in the safe while on a cruise and disconnect from the outside world and enjoy our vacation. We typically take cruises that are shorter 7 to 14 days in length. We don't bring computers or tablets with us. Disclaimer: Pre-cruise, I do love to read live reviews from the ship from those that like to submit them. However, I personally would rather spend my time doing other things on the cruise than reporting and posting pictures. But for those that do, thank you. I thought might be a fun thread to hear from others how they feel about wifi and how they use it on the ship.
  9. A sweet grandmother telephoned St. Joseph's Hospital. She timidly asked, "Is it possible to speak to someone who can tell me how a patient is doing?" The operator said, "I'll be glad to help, dear. What's the name and room number of the patient?" The grandmother in her weak, tremulous voice said, Norma Findlay, Room 302." The operator replied, "Let me put you on hold while I check with the nurse's station for that room." After a few minutes, the operator returned to the phone and said, "I have good news. Her nurse just told me that Norma is doing well. Her blood pressure is fine; her blood work just came back normal and her Physician, Dr. Cohen, has scheduled her to be discharged tomorrow." The grandmother said, "Thank you. That's wonderful. I was so worried. God bless you for the good News." The operator replied, "You're more than welcome. Is Norma your daughter?" The grandmother said, "No, I'm Norma Findlay in Room 302. No one tells me crap."
  10. Advice on this thread is free and you are demanding specific responses? Lighten up. We were just having some humor!! 🙂
  11. Bingo!!! I think this is the right answer!
  12. Unless you stayed at a Holiday last night, I don't think you are qualified to give advice on this subject. (Unless you know about old Holiday Inn commercials, you won't get this reference 🙂 )
  13. Those cabanas are so expensive that I'm sure the attendant would be thrilled at 20% 🙂
  14. After having dug to a depth of 10 feet last year outside of New York City, New York scientists found traces of copper cable dating back 100 years. They came to the conclusion that their ancestors already had a telephone network more than 100 years ago. Not to be outdone by the New Yorkers, in the weeks that followed, a Los Angeles, California archaeologist dug to a depth of 20 feet somewhere just outside Oceanside. Shortly after, a story in the LA Times read: “California archaeologists report a finding of 200-year-old copper cable, have concluded that their ancestors already had an advanced high-tech communications network a hundred years earlier than the New Yorkers.” One week later, a local newspaper in Baton Rouge, LA reported the following: “After digging down about 30 feet deep in his pasture down the bayou, Boudreaux, a self-taught archaeologist, reported that he found absolutely nothing. After consulting with his best friend, Thibodeaux, Boudreaux and Thibodeaux concluded that 300 years ago, Louisiana had already gone wireless”.
