  1. What's the cheapest/most reliable shuttle from Port Canaveral to Orlando airport? Thanks!
  2. Just curious, why was it important to mention the gender of the two representatives? It jumped off the page to me as being an unnecessary detail.
  3. We live outside La Guardia. We find it easier to fly to Florida from LGA than drive to Bayonne. That said, I'm not sure what the 7 train has to do with it. The 7 train does not come close to LGA. In any case, if your cruise arrives on a Saturday or Sunday, the traffic will be significantly lighter. Also congestion around the airport will be less on the weekend. That said, if you must transfer from Bayonne to LGA, book an afternoon flight and relax.
  4. One day or every day? Was it a set menu? Any special drinks?
  5. Correct. There may be some that will be distributed on paper, for example, maps where you name the countries of Europe, the Caribbean, etc..
  6. It's interesting that the smoking ban on airlines came about, in large part, from pressure from the flight attendants union who saw their members developing cancer from the constant exposure to second hand smoke.
  7. First of all... kudos to RCCL for their continuing aid to the Bahamas! That will impact, if only to a small degree, their quarterly profits, yet I would hope most of those of us who are shareholders would say it is a wonderful way to commit to helping those in great need. You asked why I "jumped to the quarterly profit statement." I remember the days when trivia prizes were hats, umbrellas, backpacks. Now they are key chains, highlighters and pens. So why the change? Obviously, the budget to the activities departments for prizes has been drastically cut. Why? Because corporate has determined that it is more important to growing the bottom line on the quarterly statement, if only to a small degree, than providing decent prizes to those who have committed their time to trivia and other games and contests. Good decision or bad decision? I have my opinion but I know others will disagree.
  8. Of course, you are correct. it's the great perks we receive that lead us back to RCCL.
  9. Correct! It was my assumption based on what we had won doing the same challenge on a different ship.
  10. I'm a stockholder, but there are things in life more important than profits. This is one of them!
  11. I never said the cruise was a "total failure," as you mistakenly assert. Bottom line... I had a wonderful cruise!... Stevie had a wonderful cruise!... "Anger at RCCL?" - Nope, I rarely get angry and certainly not over something like this... I appreciate RCCL and especially the Crown & Anchor program. My point was simple... RCCL can spend a few more bucks for a challenge that involves 7 days of effort, and, in this instance, involved a 13 year old. For a few bucks more, RCCL can promote a competition that brings much good will to its employees and will help make a kid and his family even more "Loyal to Royal" than they are now!
  12. Good start! We were in Nassau last week and three RCCL ships were there. Now let's do better! These folks have been devastated, losing everything from their homes to their lives.
  13. Who said this 8 night cruise was a "total failure?" Please quote your source!
  14. Just off Adventure. On the next to the last day, I overheard the Giovanni's guy saying to a potential customer, "I can give you 30% off."
  15. Nonsense! A balcony is something thy simply extends from the cabin. Where in the world do you find a definition of balcony that includes a view of the ocean?
