  1. I like to think so but it's definitely not the case LOL. It's just too vast and ever changing now to keep up on everything out there. I am focused in the area of Cyber Security now so less and less hands on, so your 'responsible hacker' insight is much appreciated. 🙂 👍
  2. LOL ... that is the model that I've just been reading up on. So the router becomes the sharing device and I will just use my tablet to be the window into this device to 'configure/make' the connection ... if I understand correctly. I might have confused what I said to imply I would try to share via my tablet. If it requires a laptop then it might be too much bother. Thanks again, I will definitely read lots and if I get one I will be sure to have it all figured out it long before travel usage. Sounds like something I should have had long ago even for hotel rooms. My thoughts on this would have been that places would have disabled any ability to connect a router.
  3. Thanks Jim, I will definitely be looking that up. I work in IT so with this direction I will have to try this ... IF I upgrade to streaming package. I don't bring a laptop, just my tablet, but assume the same can be done with that. Right now my next cruise is only the AI offered Surf WiFi but you have me intrigued, I've seen mention of streaming prior but never put much thought into it as I typically stay offline for my cruises.
  4. Silly question but do you then just network connect your Roku to your WiFi to stream material? Assuming yes, do you find any challenge with this speed wise? Or perhaps the Roku has download capability for later offline viewing? I've not used Roku, I have Amazon Fire Sticks so curious how you continue on from here to utilize the stick services. Loving your live reports BTW, you bring people right along with you and that is just awesome!
  5. I can't disagree with you on that. It shines the light bright.
  6. Setting aside this silly question that is looking to find flaw in something to be celebrated, how do you know seniority didn't play any role here AND that gender did? Perhaps other more 'qualified' senior persons are/were not interested in the move at this time; and why the leap from seniority to gender. And how can you say no judgement on Kate's abilities when what you write specifically calls it into play? This certainly isn't new, but it continues to be sad that Captain Kate is forever gender first and Captain second no matter what she accomplishes. As someone else pointed out, are there discussions out there calling this out for other Captains questioning their seniority rank when they get named to another ship? Congrats to Captain Kate, well earned and deserved! Edited to add that I was like others who could not tell you who the Captain was on my sailing, that was until I sailed with Captain Kate. Did it change my cruise, no, but she brought an energy and a presence that is not forgotten and that speaks volumes to what she brings to the industry. I now have more interest in this now, as silly as that might sound to many. To each their own 🙂
  7. It appears they must still be 'working' on all this. For the itinerary I was viewing, at this moment the Sunset Concierge no longer appears as an option and I can't imagine it is sold out that fast. Of the two Concierge still presented(base and Prime) they do not show the rooms that would be within the area I've booked on the cruise prior so there seem to be room gaps. My cabin is a C3 which I would expect to be the base Concierge but that selection only shows deck ten and my room is deck nine. Oh well, was not booking at this moment anyway but was interested in price if I decided to stay on and be in the same cabin for this following Alaska sailing. Guess I will have to give it time but for now I can have a rough idea ... and I'm not calling 🙂
  8. I see now what you are referring to, I didn't look at that in my future selection so didn't realize that category was also now broken down like that ... duh. When you said 'would' I thought you were making a guess that it would happen, not that it 'is' happening. All good if it makes for some sort of consistency and perhaps instant recognition across and within the categories.
  9. For Concierge, the hump cabins appear to be Prime. At least that is what I seen for the Eclipse sailing I was looking at. The 'base' Concierge was showing only deck 10 cabins all behind midship bump out (unless my recall is wrong). Perhaps Deluxe will go away and Prime will be the new label.
  10. Agree with less confusing once one realizes what they are and it does align with the Veranda labels.
  11. Anyone seeing the newly introduced room selections in Concierge 'Prime' and 'Sunset'? I was looking at the very new 2023 Alaska cruises (Eclipse 7 day) and I now see they have different selections in Concierge category, Prime and Sunset in addition to the prior just being Concierge. For the cruise I selected, the Prime Concierge cost was $50 pp more, the Sunset Concierge was $150 more. I am booked on this same ship just prior and it remains unchanged, still just Concierge, so it must be kicking off as new itineraries are posted. I am assuming that the only difference is room location as I definitely get different room offerings for each but it doesn't seem 100% clear so hoping that's the only difference. The detail write up on each is not 'exactly' the same but it's not different enough to clearly know if there is something added to the 'elevated' Prime and Sunset or if there is something taken away from base Concierge. Thinking it must be similar to the past 'pull apart' that has happened to the Veranda category and it is all just about location.
  12. You are limited to one drink at a time though they tend to allow bottled water like a Perrier and alcohol drink at once. So technically no to what you are asking.
  13. I do want to add one detail to this calculation though, as some have said elsewhere about the casino money you get in the Drinks & More ... $50 play (x 2 if both buying) and that would mean the $210 in theory is really $210 - $100 (play) = $110 ... IF one was going to play anything in the casino anyway? If I'm doing that right, it would seem shorter cruises fair better with this upgrade and you come out with more for less? Hmmmmm ..
  14. Celebrity allows one person to purchase a drink package, equally same for upgrades. They trust their passengers to be adults 😉 Where they require both is when you do initial cruise booking with Always Included options.
