  1. I am on Summit too, this year but I have until October. I am going to check out where the muster is for my room , hopefully it might be the theatre where there should be plenty of seats. Less people then Solstice so maybe less crowded but will still have to suffer the long drill.At least it should be cooler.
  2. I think you more then likely put the radio button on the Panama Canal picture in the first place without realizing it, I've done that before accidentally. In this case it worked out well for you!!
  3. That's excellent well done! Glad I was able to help!! 🙂
  4. I was Celebrity Solstice in March and we were herded into a hot very crowded room with a smattering of seats.The drill went and on and we were forced to watch a stupid quite lengthy video suitable for kids and even they would have got bored. They need to make it a lot shorter, about the length of the very good Princess ones cut out the rif- raff and retain peoples attention.
  5. Hi there Here is info which I hope will assist people: EDITING SIGNATURE; Go to your name top right corner of board click on downward arrow on the right/ account settings/signature delete any written info and update as you wish.save.If that does not work shorten your info keep saving until success. COUNTDOWN CLOCKS: Here is how this week , I fixed after over an hour of experimentation , the countdown clock puzzle: . I did not have to edit any previous info I had done that previously to shorten the amount of info . I did have to delete all previous countdown clocks current or sailed and then: go to link https://www.cruisecritic.com/vbulletin/countdown.cfm Create my clock , copy it and then go straight to my account settings/ signature and paste it in under the last line of info and save. I was able to create three clocks and have them in the order of sailing. paste above or below your first clock as desired. This is the link that works. The clocks do update if you refresh them you will see a lower time to sail. Its just not an actual constantly moving total as it used to be.I hope this helps people. Look at my expanded signature you will see info on past sailings and three countdown clocks .

  7. Hi there Came across this thread and thought I would share with you a wonderful private tour we did in Shinoukville with Don Bosco tours it was Christmas Day 2014 . This is what we did when we were in port on Sapphire Princess. 07.30 Pick up at the Tender port 07.30 - 08.20 Visit Fishing Villages 08:20 - 09:10 Visit Wat Leu Pagoda -loved this enchanting children there 09:10 - 09.50 Coffee Break at our own home made Italian Ice Cream Shop delicious! 09.50 - 11.30 Visit Kabal Chhay Waterfall ) beautiful spot take good walking shoes 11.30 - 13.30 Tour of the Don Bosco Hotel School and Christmas Buffet Lunch (which was super-duper followed by a dancing show) at the Poolside Restaurant. We didn’t get the tour as it was Christmas. 13.30 - 14:20 Psa Leu Market (Central Market) for shopping and Souvenirs 14.20 - 15:20 Beach Drive 15:20 - 15.30 Return to the ship The Hotel School is a not-for-profit enterprise run by a Silesian order and attached to the Don Bosco Hotel. Their mission is to train local disadvantaged young people to equip them for a career in hospitality and catering. This very special and unique tour, delivered by the School, combines Sihanoukville and area sightseeing with a tour of the school and a special buffet lunch prepared by the students; enabling folk to enjoy Cambodian hospitality and appreciate the vital work that Don Bosco is doing for the restoration of Khmer society. Price quoted for us in 2014 was $70.00 USD per person and $50USD for children under 12 years of age. including Coffee Break and Special Christmas Buffet Lunch. Drinks extra - payable at hotel reception at lunchtime. The price may possibly be adjusted depending on what kind of lunch you are offered. Don Bosco has vehicles suitable for carrying 10, 20 or 30 persons, no limit on numbers for this tour - the school will lay on sufficient transport to ensure everyone travels in comfort . We had a lot of fun and the driver and tour guide on our smaller coach were lovely, Im still in touch with them but they are both elsewhere. I am in touch. I was actually in the 10 seater coach not so comfortable as the bigger coaches but Cambodian roads are not the best and we had a lot of fun during our memorable day everyone loved the tour and I organized it for anew group when I repeated the crusie the following year also on Christmas Day they loved it and I did something different , had a wonderful time on a ship tour to a local school and other things. Email: admin@donboscohotelschool.com to find out more Hope this may be of help and inspire you as much as it did all of us. Cheers Judith
  8. I read an excellent review of very quiet any direction E1839 awhile ago and on account of that have booked it for my Alaskan cruise next month.. I have just read a recent , dreadful review of E1832 other side of ship plagued by noise not only from an extremely noisy next door neighbour but continuous very loud machinery noises below - it might be the crew metal workroom like they have on Princess .. Of course I could get noisy neighbours too who knows.Always take earplugs in case. DO NOT BOOK E1832 and if you have change it if you can !!..
