  1. Even if the OBC credit for each person is on one account they break the charges on the OBC for each person out separately. For example if the wife does not have OBC left but the husband does, and she has further charges it does not come from his OBC but is charged to the credit card. I found this out when using non-refundable OBC.
  2. On the Grand they supposedly can cram 150 people into the white and orange things πŸ˜‰
  3. I would give you 100 Likes if it was permitted.
  4. Tender is the correct term in the UK. "Water Shuttle" seems to be a term created by an MBA who should not have anything to do with shipping.
  5. That is scary as limousines tend to handle very poorly.
  6. Look at https://www.nps.gov/muwo/planyourvisit/index.htm for information on entrance fees and how to get to Muir Woods. There is a shuttle bus from Sausalito https://www.nps.gov/muwo/planyourvisit/directions.htm. A ferry from San Francisco to Sausalito and back would make a nice outing.
  7. It takes me 25 minutes to get to Pier 27 and I am right off highway 101, 10 minutes drive north of the Airport. If you stay by the airport it would take 35 minutes to get to Pier 27 by taxi, etc..
  8. A very clever response. Now if the busboy could transport it directly in water we may have a vessel. πŸ˜‰ The actual definition of vessel from "Convention on the International Regulations for Preventing Collisions at Sea" Rule 3 (a) is: The word β€œvessel” includes every description of water craft, including nondisplacement craft and seaplanes, used or capable of being used as a means of transportation on water;
  9. Yes, a vessel that shuttles water back and forth.
  10. The correct path depends were the sun is in the sky. You want to optimize your path so when on the sun side of the ship you are walking so the sun is not going in your eyes but over your shoulder.

    I have taken the first bottle to dining room and not been charged corkage on it.
  12. I was on the Grand from Sept. 23rd to Oct. 3rd. I tried Sabatini's one night and thought it sucked. It may have been because I ordered the seafood in parchment. The seafood was bland and did not have the correct texture. Nothing like anything I have had in Italy. (The seafood cooked in an Italian style served in the MDR was much better). The fresh rolls were good and the desert OK. By the way I was amused by the cioppino that was served in Horizon Court. It lacked any spice!!!! In addition there was a gentleman fishing out the scallops and putting them on his plate!! I guess he and the cook were unclear on what a cioppino is.
