  1. I met a P a couple of years ago in the CL and he was a rather interesting character. DW and I were doing a b2b and he was getting on the ship for 8 weeks. He mentioned that he was wearing his P name badge and some people would make fun of those wearing their P badge. He said his P name badge was the most expensive piece of jewelry he owned and he was going to wear it, for most P's I'm sure there is no truer statement. I'd probably wear my P badge too if I ever got to that level.....which is looking very unlikely at this point.
  2. To answer question #1 is No, and I don't care where they are. I chat with P's all the time in the CL and SL and I stand by my statement. To insinuate that I go up to fellow cruisers and say “hi my name is Xxxx I am a XX level member of the crown and anchor program and I am in XX type of cabin" is insulting.
  3. I would say 50%+ of the P's I've spoken with book an inside cabin, they rarely complain about not enough freebies though. Is it true that HA has a dollar based loyalty program instead of a point(day) based program?
  4. I was on Allure back in January. What really irritates me is when people walk into the Windjammer and are told to please wash your hands or use hand sanitizer by the staff greeters and they do neither and walk right in. I think the new protocol will be wash your hands or you do not enter.
  5. As I can clearly see, this can be a murky legal scene when there is a personal injury from a fellow passenger. We know there is probably at least one or more accidents on a cruise each week were one passenger causes a serious injury to another passenger. My wife is a stenographer and hears personal injury depositions every week. Most of the depositions are legitimate lawsuits but some make you scratch your head that an attorney would even take the case. As I stated in my op the two scenarios I listed just got me thinking and sometimes I think too much😥
  6. Here is another scenario I witnessed. Day 2 a lady in a motorized scooter got on the elevator and ran over a woman's toe that was wearing flip-flops. The woman let out a big "Owww" and the woman on the scooter profusely apologized for running over her toe, the other woman luckily was fine and told the woman in the scooter no problem. But as you can see this could have went in a totally different direction. It's not the cruise lines fault that the woman on the scooter ran over the woman's toe. So what recourse would the woman have if her foot was severely injured from being run over by someone
  7. On our cruise last week there was a man holding 5 seats on the 4th row in the theater and we were seated on row 6 behind him. About 5 minutes before showtime a man and his wife walked up and started to sit in 2 of the seats and the "seat hog" told the man these seats are reserved to which he replied that they(the cruiseline) specifically say you can not hold seats. The "seat hog" stood up to block him from entering the row and acted like he was going to punch the guy. The guy with his wife must have sensed this because he told the seat hog "you better enjoy it because it's going to cost the he
  8. Nassau is one place it's better to just book through the ship. The main reason as others have said is the long drive to and from Stuart Cove's. It's a 45 minuet drive on an average day and last September it took us almost an hour and a half to get back to the ship due to traffic. We got to the ship 25 minutes before the all aboard time and that would have been a nail biter if we weren't on the ship's excursion.
  9. A large part of the marine park in Cozumel is closed until January 2020 as marine biologist study the reef. It is due to coral bleaching or some other type of disease harming the coral. Some are blaming the hotel and cruise ship industry others say not. Do a search on marine park closure in Cozumel, lots of info. Somehow missed the prior thread on this topic.....sorry.
  10. Once in international waters and RCCL ships are Nassau registered what jurisdiction does the US Dept. of Public Health have? Do they or don't they? I don't know. But I do agree with keeping babies with swim diapers out of the pools..... and drunks too! Last cruise some drunk guy barfed in the pool and it was immediately closed for the remainder of the day. A ship's Officer told me the pool had to be drained and then cleaned and sanitized before it could re-open.
  11. I used insure my trip for years but now that we cruise 3-5 times a year and take a couple of other trips outside the US I started to use American Advantage Mastercard(several others have same benefits also) to book my trips and it covers trip cancellations for most reasons. I then purchased an annual Medjet Assist policy for the medical evacuation insurance. I ran the numbers and this was the cheapest way to go if you travel on a regular basis.
  12. We got off Navigator on Friday and we missed CoCo Cay due to hurricane Dorian. My biggest disappointment of the entire cruise was finding out the steam & sauna rooms have been removed. There are several nice additions and several not so nice changes to Navigator since coming out of refurbishment last April. The entire forward section on deck 11 where the fitness center was located is all staterooms now. The pools are packed like sardines due to more guest and no noticeable increase in pool size. Hooks specialty seafood restaurant is incredible(best crab cakes anywhere) BUT at $
  13. Going on Solstice next week and need to know if you can bring liquor(Baileys) instead of wine when you embark?
