  1. Everything was fine until yesterday. When I opened the Medallion app I got this message: "Compass is Currently Unavailable We have "all hands on tech" working to get back online." There is a Back button, but it doesn't work. I'm okay with waiting until I board to get this right, but don't understand why all of a sudden I get this message? Yet another glitch... .
  2. I think a lot of us "old" people don't get sick because we've built up immunity in our younger years. We had no idea about hand sanitizer, etc. We played outside in the dirt and mud and we were exposed to other children's illnesses. In fact, some parents purposely exposed their children to measles, mumps and chickenpox to get them over with 😨! Not a good idea, but it was done. I've come home from a cruise with a cold, but I think I get it from flying, not from the ship. JMO
  3. We usually order pizza as soon as we get to the hotel. The front desk can tell you who delivers, if that's something you might want to do. Are you sure your room has a microwave? I know some of ours didn't and there wasn't one on site that we could use. I always carry packages of tuna and crackers just in case!
  4. Thanks so much for the info! Hope to be able to find that elusive Button on my next trip ☺️.

    Neither. You'll probably find a voucher for your soda when you board, and need to call Room Service to redeem it. Sometimes we've found the soda already in the cabin, but not often. After you get the soda you can take it anywhere you want.
  6. I've tried to find this button for a long time! Where is it, please? I just have to apologise to anyone in the seat in front of me, since I can't "push" myself up. Being able to slide out would be very helpful. Thanks!
  7. Check the LaQuinta in Plantation. It's been a while since we stayed there, but they used to have shuttles from the airport and to the cruise port.
  8. Thank you! I bought a copy today. I know I'll enjoy reading it and learning something new.
  9. That's very scary! Take care and get out earlier rather than later.
  10. Doug, check the Hampton Inn Airport/Cruise Port North. Depending on the date they're pretty reasonable.
  11. This is one of my pet peeves! We've been on a lot of cruise's and never had a working restroom on a tour bus. When we do get to a place with a restroom I spend the whole time in line to use it, missing the tour or shopping. I need an "Easy" rated tour, with at least one restroom break every two or three hours. I can't be the only one!
  12. We stayed at the Meriton, Kent Street in Sydney. It was very nice and close to lot's of things, including Chinatown, shopping and the subway. I've heard good things about all the Meriton properties. https://www.meritonsuites.com.au/our-hotels/nsw/
