  1. I have no problem with them struggling to pay for a funeral, as it has come as an unexpected expense. My problem is with the apparent lack of insurance (either because they could not afford insurance or decided not to have insurance). I'm assuming that if they had insurance the cost of the funeral would have been covered or part covered by the insurance.
  2. Kim would have been in mourning, so maybe she did not read the contract.
  3. Yes RCI do increase the base price of a cruise to cover your free drink package.
  4. Anello may never accept what he has done because he has blocked out the incident. Once he blocked out how/why Chloe fell he needed to come up with a version to tell the police and family. For Anello this new version, of events, has become what really happened and not what actually happened.
  5. Not all booking are refundable deposit. Some cruise lines offer US citizens both refundable and non-refundable deposit cruises. Mim Lloyd will need to check if she wants a refundable deposit cruise.
  6. I know where Chloe's mother was, at the time of the accident, GS but does anyone know where her father and brothers were? I'm just curious as in post #845 mitsugirly reports that the court papers state that 'Anello came up to the H2O Zone to look after Chloe'
  7. Have you thought that some of the friends and family may have doubts about the family's version of events? By reading this thread the ones with doubts may find some comfort knowing that others doubt the family's version of events
  8. I agree with you. The parents do have the right to sue Royal but the question is should they? Chloe's death was a tragic stupid accident. I understand that the parents are trying to prevent another child dying the same way as Chloe but what about their own other children? What message are they sending out to their other children? "Hey kids it's ok to do something stupid because we will find someone to sue, as they should have known you would have done something stupid" I don't think this is the case. I think the family cannot come to terms with the fact that GF did something so stupid. The family may not be able to come to terms with the stupidity of the GF actions until after his court case.
  9. I think its great you are taking a solo cruise but please don't be too mad at your family. Try and take some comfort that are concerned about you. Some people don't have families to worry about them.
  10. Forgive what might sound like a stupid question, but are lawyers and police offices in the US that poorly paid that they can not afford to bury their own child or can not afford insurance for their cruise (which might have covered some of Chloe's funeral costs)? Btw I have no idea what the cost of living is in the US ( it's been awhile since I was last in the US) so please don't flame me for what might seem an insensitive question
  11. Is there an accessible cabin available. Because it sounds like he will need the disabled bathroom.
  12. The grandfather may believe he is innocent because he has mentally blocked out what actually happened.
  13. What I don't understand is why the grandfather did an interview, particularly whilst he is awaiting trial. This seems a bad move to me. Is this normal in the US or did the grandfather get really bad legal advice, about giving an interview?
  14. If you want any chance of a partial refund forget about the naked man, just complain about the plantation.
  15. When we cruise we often see Penguin Parking mini-vans. I don't know anything about the company but it might be worth checking them out.
  16. I must live in a different world but when is £20 to uncork a bottle of wine considered reasonable?
  17. Forgive me if I'm speaking out of turn. But there is a difference between an electric wheelchair and a scooter. If your mum is not use to using an electric wheelchair then she would be better renting a scooter.
  18. Have you thought about your mobile phones and internet usage? If you want to use the internet every day consider getting an internet package. Using the internet at sea without a package can become very expensive. We only use the internet when we are in port and you can get free internet on land.
  19. Try not to forget your toiletries. The ship does carry a small selection of toiletries but I think they are expensive.
  20. Hi, the Anthem has a lift up to the North Star.
  21. Post number 4 explains why CC may have locked the thread.
  22. What will happen to the ship and other passengers? Does the ship have to stay in port, longer than just an overnight stay?
  23. We were on a Royal Caribbean ship a few years ago. The cabin crew placed a vibrating pad under the mattress when they noticed my son wore hearing aids. The bed vibrated every time someone rang our cabin or knocked on the door. Check out if the cruise line you are sailing with has a similar device.
  24. I think this may depend on the ship. We were on the Indy several years ago. An elderly couple wanted to buy just 1 deluxe drink package as the wife's medication prevented her from drinking alcohol. They did not want to buy a refreshment package for her either. The waiter selling the packages made this couple go down to the medical bay so that the ship's doctor could verify that the wife's medication prevented her from drinking alcohol. It was either that or the husband could not buy his deluxe package. I know this happened because we were buying our packages at the same time. This may have been a 1 off or the waiter was following the rules because the wife did not want to buy any type of package
