  1. Many many years ago I dated a professional baseball player from Tennessee. We got along great; he was a heck of a nice guy. Right until we were in a club with several friends and the first guy to order asked for a cocktail. My date, John, said loud enough to be heard by the group that people who drink cocktails are just showing off. They want everyone to think they’re high class. We sat there, stunned and he went on. He said it’s like opera...nobody really likes opera, they just want to impress everyone. So we all ordered cocktails, he drank his beer and later when h
  2. When they denigrate others’ choices, they reveal an awful lot about themselves.
  3. You can make the request prior to the cruise, but most of the time the beds are left the way the previous passengers left them. I use Word to type a message for our steward. It includes bed configuration, whether we wish ice twice a day, extension cord for CPAP, extra pillows, and depending on the cruise line, trade duvet for top sheet and blanket. I add a hearty thanks for his efforts. This way he knows what our requests are in writing and everything is taken care of.
  4. We’ve never had them waiting, but letting the steward know will have them in place before you go to bed. It’s like the bed configuration, together it separate. In our experience, the steward never gets that info, but it’s also correct by bedtime. Using regular water for a couple of weeks, if necessary, would not harm the CPAP, by the way. For instance, a hotel probably wouldn’t have distilled water for you.
  5. I’ve never noticed Chops being open for lunch. Recently I’ve seen posts mentioning lunch at Chops. This is NOT The Key lunch. Anyone know anything about this?
  6. Thank you. Our daughter is sailing before we do. I’ll also pass your tip on to her.
  7. It’s painful to have to purchase on board something We could have brought with us. The prices are exorbitant. Retirees on fixed incomes sometimes have to stretch the budget just to cruise. Spending time in port trying to find something we could have brought with us is even worse.
  8. Is the Coastal Kitchen dinner menu on tv or intranet? or do you have to go stand outside and read it each day off the wall?
  9. Dollar Tree has them for a dollar. You get at least two. One kept the bathroom bright enough not to have to turn the light on at night for a 27 day cruise.
  10. After reading about the cracked and uncomfortable seats, I’d like to know which MDRs are traditional and which My Time? i did ask on a thread but my question may be buried.
  11. Is American Icon My Time or Traditional dining?
  12. I love Les Mis, and have seen it multiple times including a week after it opened in London. However, I get weepy when the orchestra plays the overture, and when it’s over, walk out with tears in my eyes. I need happy entertainment on cruises. Back before a lot of you were born, Norway had Broadway shows and did a great job. I remember Meet Me in St Louis, an old musical with wonderful music, and Barnum about the showman. It pretty much followed the same story line as the Hugh Jackman movie. We were rocking and rolling in a pretty big storm, watching an actor walk the ti
  13. Thank you so much for sharing another cruise with us. We’ll be on Harmony March 29, but will keep up with your cruise via Voom if that’s when you’re cruising I hope Owen has a terrific school year.
  14. For the past ten or so years, we’ve only sailed on Princess and Royal Caribbean. I guess we’ve been very lucky, because ship or private excursion, we’ve never run into seat problems. Everyone automatically went back to their original seats after stops. I can’t imagine the pushing and shoving to get on first if that weren’t the case. On a week or longer escorted tour, every one each morning moved back 3 rows, as an earlier poster said. The only people who didn’t were a few with disabilities on different tours. Were people more civil then? I don’t recall any compla
  15. My post was DUMB! i forgot the question was about Emerald status, which we are, and converted it in my head to Jr Suite. Talk about hijacking a post!!
  16. I don’t have an answer, but I’m not surprised. If you ask your steward, he’ll replace the water with a canned drink (probably the only other option), or advise you to ask Room Service to do it. Not meaning to hijack your thread, but the answers to my questions might be helpful to you. This is our first time in a Jr Suite on Royal. I’m now completely confused about what perks are available, because I’ve seen comments that don’t match the online list. I know that Jr Suites are just larger cabins, not suites. So, do we check in and board with the suites?
  17. Norwegian is replacing bottled water with cartons of water. I hope RCI doesn’t go that route.
  18. When we did it on Oasis, the last step was stick your index fingers in your ears and roll your eyes.
  19. Elevator hack, please. Right now I feel like my stomach does when I tell it it’s getting filet mignon and Maine lobster and they’re not available!
  20. The Key price dropped from $39.99 to $29.99 per adult per day. I jumped on it for two reasons... it includes internet and it’s a chance to have a Chops steak without going to Chops. My DH won’t do specialty restaurants any more on any cruise line.
  21. Great and informative post. I don't think that’s who posters were talking about, though. I’ve seen plenty of people that boarded using a wheelchair arrive at their destination and walk right by the wheelchairs. When I’ve had to use a wheelchair, I am always told to wait till everyone has deplaned before getting off myself. I guess the ones who needed one boarding don’t want to have to wait st the other end.
  22. I love bacon but not when it’s bitter, salty and explodes into crumbs when you bite it.
  23. Finally a reason to join my DH in Windjammer!
