  1. Thanks for the fact checking Fouremco. I'm more interested in X's comparative movement from year to year than a single poll
  2. What? You bring books to read on a cruise that you have written? Why?
  3. As likely as an American's would be Kevlar lined.
  4. In what fashion was I criticizing your query? I simply asked a question about your question. However, this is an open forum. If you are averse to any perceived criticism, directed towards yourself or anyone else. I suggest you try to be a little less sensitive.
  5. I'm curious- how does a photo (of possibly dubious quality) tell you whether or not a given dish tastes as it should? I've seen plenty of examples over the years of things that look good and taste awful ( and vice versa).
  6. Or, in the vernacular, a s__t disturber. Someone so bored with their life that they feel a need to try to create controversy for their personal entertainment. There are a few if these people around here (some of whom frequent these boards daily).
  7. WTH are you actually talking about? "to put people in classes based on accumulated points" Do you mean loyalty points? So they get a few perks because if the many thousands of dollars they've spent on X in the past. Haven't they earned them? I don't see this as a "class apart". Anyone who has spent that much is entitled to the same thing. Do you also complain about hotel guests or airline passengers with enough loyalty points to use their concierge lounges? "Is your Royal Suite more deserving of better service and attention than my lower deck inside cabin?" Well, yes, to a certain extent this is true. You pay the extra money for Butler service and a separate lounge and dining room (and the services which come with those). You get what you pay for. And I believe you can have jello no matter what your loyalty status or cabin category.
  8. Welcome to Cruise Critic. What to pack (for day time) is determined at least in part by the type of excursions you want to do. There are a few forums you can check out. For ship hoard info, look at the HAL board. https://boards.cruisecritic.com/forum/103-holland-america-line/ For excursions, see what your fellow cruisers on your sailing are planning on your Roll Call: https://boards.cruisecritic.com/forum/52-holland-america-roll-calls/ Also have a look at the Ports of Call forum: https://boards.cruisecritic.com/forum/33-alaska/ Have a lovely cruise.
  9. So you are dragging your suitcase from under the bed and rooting around in it every time you need something? No thank you. We tend to take cruises longer than a week, and I much prefer to have my things neatly stored so they are easily accessible without getting down on my hands and knees. And while I'm unaware of any kind of formal night police on any of the lines we have sailed, I take care in my appearance, so minimizing creases and wrinkles matters to me. Of course YMMV.
  10. Well, if it's breakfast, they are unlikely to get an answer. Anybody who knows me knows better than to talk to me before I've had my breakfast and had time to properly wake up. Any other time- sure I'll answer them. And why would I lie? The answer may be boring, but it's not my purpose in life to provide entertainment.
  11. Get a drink and watch the sail away from an upper deck.
  12. When we started cruising, formal nights with tuxes and gowns were expected, and that's what we did. It was never really a big deal - we went to quite a few formal affairs every year until DH retired, and even now there are at least a couple of occasions yearly. So it was a bit of a relief to leave those behind when the dress codes were relaxed. DH still wears a blazer and dress slacks, while I will choose something dressier than usual for whatever the ship calls it's more formal night. We haven't sailed on a ship with a required formal dress for quite a few years now.
  13. Don, your ignorance is showing. First if all, the OP was asking about her boyfriend, not herself. Secondly, you don't get high from CBD. You need to learn the difference between CBD and THC.
  14. Spoken like a man. Lol. Our OTDSH holds everything BUT shoes. They're really good for corralling and organizing all those items that might otherwise be cluttering the cabin. And they're easier to find.
  15. Agree. Dukoral is a 2fer: protects against both ETEC and cholera. Both have diarrhea as a major symptom.
