Lanyards for Sea Pass-- the are probably no longer needed, right?

I have no problems using new technology on the ship. Personally, I think it’s great and I’m really happy with RC for making their app better and more useful.  I use the camera frequently on my phone, so I don’t see it as a hassle at all to carry my phone. I’m also a big fan of Wow bands - loved them on our Anthem cruises. 

Change is good.

I’d be fine trying out one of the bands…

So are WOW bands like the Disney magic bands?  Are they available on Harmony?  We are very used to the Disney ones.

I think so, just not sure what ships offer them at this point..

Sorta, they can be used for most things in lieu of a SeaPass card.

 

Yes.

you will need SOMETHING to securely carry sea pass, phone, or anything else you decide you need on board.  The older ships do not issue wow bands.  Listen to no one who tells you what looks good and what doesnt.  None of there business.  Pockets work.  Lanyards work.  Cross body little pouches work.  Waist bands with pouches work.  Your chice.

I think to really upset people, I'll wear a lanyard for the sepass card, and then another with my phone.  And wear the band.

I think the only one who will be annoyed is you having to carry all the added weight on your neck. Might want to pack a neck brace too.

The app is not yet foolproof. I'm being pinged to attend safety briefing for the last hour. on Freedom today. Only problem is I'm going on Friday!!!

 

At least I know how it should work on Friday, if I am allowed to sail Friday!!

DW and I have never used a lanyard in 30 yrs. If you can carry a phone you can carry a cruise card.

Agree , having one of those around my neck would remind me of attending a conference. I try to forget those work memories . I bring clothes with pockets when i cruise.

I've never used a lanyard. That's what pockets are for.

Now I'm embarrassed.  I have always used a lanyard.  I had no idea how unfashionable I looked.  I'm going to have a lanyard burning party tonight!

I believe on one of your posts I said you were probably too cool to use a lanyard :classic_wink:

Lanyards are cool, you never lose your card after a few too many drinks 😁

It's easy for men, majority of their clothes have pockets, even their bathing suits.   My DH rarely uses his lanyard.

But for us woman, majority of our clothes dont have pockets.   

 

Time to design cruisewear for woman with pockets!!

Do not use a Lanyard.

 

It is horrible look.

 

Act like you have been there before...

 

I have been there before many, many times. Still love my lanyards. Some of us don't care what the others think of our look. I'm more concerned  with content of character .

Why so "judgey"?

Those work really poorly if you have anything but a flat abdomen.
