Thanks. Those seem like letter combinations that should not exist in the English lanuage.😐

 

I think it's Yiddish

I am nowhere close to 140 points so have never gotten one.  Didn't even know what they were or that this existed till this thread.  But you could count me in the 60% that would leave it in the room as I have no interest in cheap tchotchkes.

 

2.4 pounds of lead crystal

I’m surprised they’re selling for that much.

I'm not, one missing from Collection or a Sailing people will pay. But ones I have always received do longer sailings lot of them, have 6 Serenades and 3 Brilliance. These 2 have almost always been cheapest online.

Sure. Coming back into USA asked do I have anything to Declare. Why yes, bringing back 2 Kilo's


We got flagged at the airport in Vancouver bringing back our block. They dug through our carryon and pulled it out of the box to check what it was.

lesson learned, put it on the top in the carryon 😉

I’m glad they reversed their decision. As is so often the case nowadays, the pendulum swings too far one way but eventually settles near a reasonable answer. The three options should help eliminate the trash blocks, while also helping those who fly and are concerned about packing them in luggage. Good result.

kilo = 2.2 lb.

 

Yea, I know. I think that's what they weigh. I think 2.4 is heavier than I remember

Very happy they reversed their decision.  We will get another one next cruise (if it goes in November).  I’ve always just stuck in a carry on but if it was a international flight I’d have them mail it to me.

Why did they do Quantum class in a different font?!?  It ruins the symmetry!!

Harmony and Anthem are that way as well. Went back to script on Symphony

I noticed that as well.  I have several blocks that are a slightly smaller size, most mid size, and one larger one.  

 

Obviously they don't all weigh the same.  😉

May have something to do with a different form to show the North Star thing?

I could use one of each of those.  I have duplicates of Freedom, Oasis, Navigator, Adventure & Allure if you are interested in doing a swap.
