  1. This comes up again and again, for my trip decades ago, LOL, there were the tours that wanted cold hard cash, then all the little stuff. I simply calculated how much for the big items and secured that amount prior to departure, the rest I topped off with ATM, just avoid the ship at all cost!! Arrival at airport always have ATMs, every port you can find banks that have ATM, I'd avoid any store front / convenience store ATM.
  2. We did this multiple times, what is the need to see the pursor? For us we never put anything on the CC, but we gave everyone charge capability so didn't matter who had who's card.
  3. Indeed the move by AMD to TSMC 7nm and chiplet approach is going to push chipzilla which is struggling
  4. What is coming in Q3'2019, why not Q3'2020, there is something coming every every year, LOL
  5. For professionals doing art gallery shots these tools make sense, for the common joe or insecure joe where size makes of for insecurity go for it, LOL How many people have 8K > 60" screens, if most of your viewing is on your phone or web downsized all that is ridiculous With the newest sensors even smartphones with post processing are very good in low light for memory capture.
  6. Well I'm sailing end of June so I'll predate you by a week, LOL. I really enjoyed my sail away the last time, hope like you they don't change This sound like on bad series of things, almost like the MAX ( multiple failures ) but can imagine that the captain really couldn't do anything as momentum w/o control is a physics problem that can't be fixed
  7. Upgrade is total GAS, be sure your current camera isn't delivering. I found I probably could have survived and got equally great images with three generations ago camera for the most part
  8. whatever you get go used, LOL nothing cheaper and more value than slightly used electronics. For underwater I'd go GoPro, many used ones for sale,
  9. Look into buying used In Alaska you simply can't have too much zoom, just remember a 400mm on a crop or smaller sensor is a lot of zoom, but they are slow lens so need stabilization and hope you have good light. I shot with a 70-200 with 2x converter on FX it was way to short for Alaska, LOL
  10. Sailing 6/23, getting excited! To all those posting little tips, THANK YOU Keep them coming, this is what makes CC great
  11. BKM: B= Best, K=Known M=Method Best Known Method! I was surprised at the dearth of usefuly information compared to the Italy and other ports. Maybe I haven't looked more closely but I recalled in the past I found useful things in less then 10' but not for this cruise, LOL
  12. Been ages, well seemed like ages 2015 Mexico, now doing a Greek Island and over 55 too, LOL
  13. Kind of a dual post both in the NCL forum and here. After a long absence from cruising coming back and doing the NCL Star: Venice, Kotor, Corfu, Thira/Santorini, Mykonos, Argostolion, Dubronvnik, Venice. We are fit and will be with kids 18/22 and are okay with a mix of DIY and Tours Any obvious tips of must do/ watch out etc. for both the ports, Thanks ahead of time to any tips as well as links and resources.
  14. After a long absence from cruising coming back and doing the Star: Venice, Kotor, Corfu, Thira/Santorini, Mykonos, Argostolion, Dubronvnik, Venice. This will be our first time on NCL, previously almost always Princess and a couple on Disney and Carnival We are fit and will be with kids 18/22 and are okay with a mix of DIY and Tours Any obvious tips of must do/ watch out etc. for both the ports, as well as newbies to NCL what to pack, what not, and of course tips about the ship and NCL experience coming as long-time Princess Thanks ahead of time to any tips as well as links and resources. Cheers
