  1. You have that right. I did a couple posts from my iPhone, but it appears we have to log in more often than the website. Either I am inpatient waiting for the second page of threads to load on the cruise line forum, or it doesn’t load. It is much quicker to read my subscribed threads. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. There is an Izumi on Indy. We used our package for 3 nights at Chops. Word of warning - don’t get the lamb. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. I figured out how to see signatures on an iphone If you use Puffin browser, they show up. Problem is, it is a little wonky typing on it.
  4. I guess I need to add #8, unless someone knows how to do it. I wasn’t able to display signatures, until after I updated mine. I now have them turned on, and they display on my computer, and on my iPad, but they do not display on my iPhone. Any idea how to turn them on for the iPhone, is is this another area they need to work on? See screenshots from iPad and iPhone The iphone does not display the signature.
  5. I think everyone has covered it quite well on what to expect for the weather. You will only have a limited amount of time to explore each island, so you will need to research and pick what you want to do. Do note that some Princess excursions sell out early, so you should look at booking those soon if you plan to do them. I always say the best way to see the islands is to spend a couple weeks there. I have spent 12 weeks there on six different land based vacations, plus the one cruise we did from San Francisco. if you are interested in what the cruise is like, there is a link to a report I did in my signature. It also has a video link that one of our fellow cruisers did. Enjoy your planning.
  6. Just got this one while using the back arrow on an iPad
  7. Following along with your live. We did this two years ago from San Francisco. Interested in how the internet is for you on this cruise. Hope there have been some improvements. It was pretty bad on our sea days. Enjoy
  8. 7. Another thing would be a collapse signature button. You use to be able to expand and collapse signatures. Now you have the expand signatures function, but the only choice after that is to hide a signature, or hide all signatures. The only way I find to get them back is to go in and edit profile to show signatures.
  9. For the mobile users, they should be able to do something. With the Tapatalk app, they show up, so it should be doable
  10. I think this only happens on days of the week that end in y.
  11. Since the move to the web based system, some things have been lost that would be nice to get back. 1. In the new system, we only see the thread title. In the old one, we would also see the first few lines in the first post by the OP. This would give give more information than just the title to determine if we wanted to read. (I know, you can hover on a computer to see that, but there is no hover on mobile devices which is probably what most people use). It would be nice to get this preview back. 2. In the old system, the OP was always listed as such in their subsequent posts. Now they are not. Can we get the OP identifier back? I know I am probably missing other things, so feel free to add to the list of wants. Who knows, maybe they can do something. Still waiting for the app to come back. I can use tapatalk to read, but not post yet, and yes, the couple preview lines are listed on it for each thread. Maybe 1 will be done when the app is back.

    Previous ‘signature’ info

    It will display your old signature, but if you make any changes to it, it will need to comply with the new requirements. If you turn off signatures, and your signature does not comply, you will not be able to turn signatures on again until it does comply. It is a shame, where people linked their reviews in their signature. Now, you can only list 3 URL's.

    Rci app

    That’s what they said last year. I guess they didn’t specify the end of what year they would all have it.

    What happens if there's an emergency at home?

    That was our situation. We were a couple days from the nearest port, and started looking at getting off the ship and flying back from South America. Fortunately, things resolved by the time we made port. Just glad we were able to keep up on things.

    What happens if there's an emergency at home?

    Almost five years ago, we were on a Panama Canal cruise, and we needed to keep in touch back home because of some family members medical issues. We used email, and rationed our minutes to make our per minute plan last the duration of the cruise. In addition, we used our cell phone while onboard for calls and texts. For an idea of the cost, For an extra $128 on our cell phone bill, we had 21 minutes of calls, 106 outgoing and 158 incoming texts. I think, overall, it was less than what ship to shore would be.
