  1. If I'm asked, I respond honestly. But that's if I'm asked. It's not the sort of info I volunteer unsolicited because then it sounds like bragging.
  2. This couple wore their bathrobes everywhere, including the dance floor.
  3. My apologies. I misread the link you posted. For some reason, my eyes read "it is" instead of "is it." Darn.
  4. I certainly hope so. Then again, what do I care. This would be the ship's problem, not mine.
  5. Post #2 of this thread. At least, that's what I think its saying.
  6. Did I really just read a post saying they're going to take 50-75 of these things on to a ship and hide them? Seriously?
  7. Anytime someone posted weird selfies or pics like those disgusting orange feet, I tried to make them disappear by posting ship pics. Problem is, I ran out. I'm glad CC is working on a solution to opt out of seeing them.
  8. I'm actually quite surprised at how many posts on this thread say there is no difference. I've been on 54 cruises and I certainly see a difference between my 3/4/5 nighters and 7+ nighters. And yes, I did notice a difference between 5 nights on Carnival vs 5 nights on other lines. In my opinion (and experience), a short Carnival cruise is about as "booze cruise" as you can get in the cruise industry. Not saying its a bad thing...people really enjoy themselves...but it is what it is.
  9. There is no excuse for people making negative comments about your job or residence. I have no problem lumping people like that into the general jerk category. What I'm referring to is this seemingly general message that somehow its now rude to even ask a person what they do or where they're from. That, I think is ridiculous and an indictment of the times.
  10. If people are so sensitive nowadays as to be offended by things like the state they live in or what they do for a living, I guess I deserve to be at a table for two because I'm sure to send someone running for their safe space.
  11. If you have never sailed HAL, I recommend going with the much newer Koningsdam.
  12. Here's a short story, which may also be what happened to you.... This once happened to a family member of mine. They weren't in any hurry so they waited in the warehouse until all passengers were debarked and through Customs. In the end, 1 piece of luggage remained that looked exactly like theirs. They (with security) contacted the name on the tag and sure enough, that person carelessly took the wrong bag without confirming it was theirs.
  13. Neither do motorcycles but it doesn't stop you from using it as your photo on a cruise website. As long as it's appropriate and has relevance to the wearer, it's all that matters.
  14. Up until we started eating at a 2-top, I can remember 2 awful table mates. One was a couple who only wanted to brag about their cruise history, not give a crap about any of the others', and continued to offer unsolicited advice. The other was a group of foreigners from the north who were obsessed with bashing American politics and refused to listen to reason, despite my first-hand knowledge of some things.
