Bummed. 

 

Some folks type their posts in Word and then paste them in when ready

 

Oops

I tried that once, with the old CC, on my MacBook and the formatting would get messed up. Maybe new CC is better?

Thanks for the very wacky review.  It was crazy and I felt like I was reading it in a washing machine turned on high, but it was very enjoyable.

 

Keep on sailin'!

Try Notepad (or some other text editing program).

It can happen.

The key is brevity😎

 

Or type one word, hit submit, and then edit the rest.😉

 

Now back to our regularly scheduled program

If you are using a PC, I'd compose the post in Word (or whatever you like), then copy and paste into the CC post.

Bob, I am old.

 

My daughter is not here to help me.........................

 

What is this "word" you refer to?

 

I just logg on the computer 

 

Go to my favorites

 

click on it.

 

Read, read, and read on the threads.

 

type occasionally.

Microsoft Word, a word processing program.  If you don't have that installed, try using Wordpad, that should be in your accessories folder.

I don’t want to detract from Brandon’s travels, but just one comment.  Haven’t they effectively handled over 100 Pins on TA’s and the Presidents cruise?  

No. I was in the last one and knew a couple that could not get reservations. I was Star Class and asked to eat and the hostess said they are full and had no open seats  that evening. This was in the afternoon. His co worker said they are Star Class. The hostess looked horrified and stressed as he did not know where he was going to put us since the Star Class table was taken. I said no worries I would stick to my original dinner plans.

I was in a cruise with the person you are describing and had the unfortunate experience of sitting next to her at her table.   I thought it was just out group of ladies. Nice to know it wasn’t.

Well, there's only the one 'Star' table and 8-10 Star Suites. 

 

I think they added a second one eventually

On a side note, I believe the plan for the doomed Oasis TA was to open Chops to the Pinnacles for breakfast and lunch using the CK menu. No idea about dinner.

 

And back to Brandon

Tropical depression is developing, named Barry ------ Really!!!!!  (yup favorite word)

 

B

We all know the only B around here is for:

 

BRANDON

 

The national weather service called that one wrong  🙂

 

 

Will only take about 30 min. to roll 6 nut rolls.

Ok catch you later after dinner and our guest leave.

You need a speak to text app, then you could just talk to us while you roll your nuts

Cancel dinner - this must continue!!!!  Great review.  And nothing against any P's but 100 P's on a cruise would definitely impact the entire SL experience.  And as someone who enjoys that space, I would be mighty unhappy if I weren't able to utilize it.  Hope Royal comes up with something that keeps everyone - scratch that, make it MOST everyone happy.  We all know there will be complaining from certain quarters.

Maybe they plan to give everyone the $18 a day drink package. 😁

Pinnacles used to have their own lounge and RCI decided in their infinite wisdom to make it a cabin.

I think they need to have their own lounge again. Suites pay a lot of money and CK/suite lounge is a perk.

Just my humble opinion:)

If you are referring to the Pinnacle Lounge on Oasis/Allure, that was not a dedicated lounge for Pinnacle members.  That was open to all, until the Viking Crown became the Suite Lounge.
