Or possibly a large hot water tank or part of the water/steam distillate system? Again, just a WAG. Some sort of big warm(er) thermal mass.

Maybe muster drills should be done before ever leaving a main embarkation port? The logistics, given that baggage, embarkation, resupply are also going on would seem to make that too costly and time...

Just wondering, how will that keep any bed bugs from hitching a ride home in the luggage itself? They are amazing little critters (not in a good sense) when it comes to getting into and hiding in...

The refrigerators aren't very cold. More just cool. I'm almost positive you can bring snacks on board although I never have. You generally cannot bring food off the ship though. With the constant...

It's just a dirty toilet with rust stains kind of like this one

Junk and items of no value may get tossed. But would you throw away unworn clothing with the tags still attached? How about an expensive watch, or other piece of jewelry? Does anyone really think...

The extra hundred comes from exaggeration to support an opinion.

A domestic beer is $5. The best beer value is the big Foster's can for $5.95 + 15%. The drink of the day is $5.99 by the pool...

A 750 ml Grey Goose is $22.99. Absolute 750ml is $16.99. Typically all this stuff is on sale every other month or so. http://www.nh.gov/liquor/weekly_sale.shtml

Not to argue the right or wrong of it, but other than the "specials", drinks are more like $8 to $12 each once you add the gratuity in. A 750ml bottle of Rum, Whiskey, or Vodka yields 17 "standard"...

Wow, I've never had that experience. I've stayed in many NYC hotels using Priceline and was always treated very well and on par with any other guest.

One thing to add to the conversation though....

Turn the shower on full hot. Hang whatever garment you need to get the wrinkles out of in front of it so the steam can get to it for 10 minutes or so. Meanwhile, get a smoothe bottle and fill it...

Yes, they charge for both soda and water, and quite a bit. The bottled water is even more than than soda - something like $4.00 for a bottle of Evian. Just drink the "tap" water, get a bartender to...

It's not a pop-up. A pop-up would open in a new window. It's a banner ad. It's an ad hosted by the CC webpage, for which they get paid either by unique views and / or click thru's. No way to...

Technically they can refuse to let you bring it on board - it's stated in the cruise contract (all beverages including water and soda, etc). But we didn't have a problem last year with a 24 pack...

I squash the roll flat and put it in a specially designed cover that makes it appear to be a book! Then I further disguise it by hiding it in between my Rumrunners. They haven't found it yet!

Was just there in March. DIdn't get any immunizations. Haven't died yet. YMMV.

I had no problems getting my rumrunners past the machines in the Port of Miami. Depends a lot on how full you fill them, whether or not you get all the air out, and where you put them in your bag. ...

Sooooo, are you mad at Costa Cruises for not offering you a refund or credit, or are you mad at an insurance company that is saying you aren't covered under the trip insurance policy you purchased?

My understanding is that pools and hot tubs are open 24 hours except when they are shut down for cleaning / maintenance. That usually does occur at night though, so don't expect all of them to be...

According to recent news reports, it looks like the eruption has picked up again and another large ash cloud is drifting toward the UK. Looks right now like Heathrow and others aren't going to open...

1) Altitude has little to no effect on them if you get all the air out.
2) The aircraft is pressurized to the equivalent of about 7000 to 8000 feet above sea level, so it is no worse than say...
