  1. Just got off her this Sat. There were some dead spots around the ship, but for the most part, internet worked quite well and quickly enough for me. I don't stream much. I did listen to some streaming radio.. I heart, and Sirius XM. Worked fine with those.
  2. So the only thing the test can show is positive? If it shows negative, one can still have the virus? I'm not in this field, but I find that a bit odd. That's pretty unfortunate then.
  3. I keep asking and the answer has been not yet, but do you recall if the TV's in the gym had shows on yet? Word was that there was some compatibility issues. Not a huge deal since I'll be on her Saturday๐Ÿ˜Š
  4. I thought Havensight is the dock CLOSEST to town (near Paradise point/tram). Seems right since $4 cab fare is low for the other dock: Crown Bay.
  5. We've got a Feb 21 10 day balcony... $50 per cabin: Future Cruise Deposit* $50.00 $50.00 $100.00
  6. Thanks for doing this! This will enhance our waiting time as we'll be boarding on the day of your disembarking! Enjoy and thanks again.
  7. I've seen similar posts many a time. Can you elaborate as to how it's a wast of time or money? I mean it's not different than posting on CC that cruising is a wast of time of money without further comment. Not trying to be mean a bit, just curious.
  8. As I just mentioned, I think we've had similar experiences. I did like the artists more when PFA ran it than with PW. I even lucked out when one of the artists was on the ship with us. She was a Disney illustrator. I already had one of her works and picked up another on that cruise. And yes.. less than what I could get it online or the few galleries that her works were at.
  9. I admit that I've bought a few pieces over the years.. but that was when Princess Fine Arts owned it. Now I think Park West does. Anyway, reading through the thread, a couple of points may still be relative. Some limited editions prints can be quite nice on the eyes and though they aren't totally unique, there is some enhancement with them being limited. Still, I doubt many would look to buy these second hand at a high price. However, in the past when I bought some pieces, they indeed were less than what I could ever find online or in a gallery (Wyland or Miller for example.) At the time, frames were included. AND these framings were quite well done and much less than what I could pay for back home. So I ended up with pieces that I truly liked, at a lower cost AND well framed. Wins all around for me. Now I can't comment on one off originals, but if one truly knows what a similar piece may go for in a gallery, it may be worth it. I guess the real question is where does one purchase their art from and what would they pay from that source? All in all, just know what you're getting and determine if it's worth it to you. So yes, let the buyer beware. But isn't that true at any gallery? As a plus, whenever I look at my pieces, it also reminds me of the cruise that I purchased them on. From what I've read, you may even get some fun out of attending. I do miss the way Princess Fine Arts ran them since they were pretty low key and gave some great back stories about an artist or two which I also found interesting.. not sure if that's still done today. The first year when PW took em over, it was a bit of a clown show.. maybe they've toned that down a bit? Just a view from "the other side."
  10. Uh, sure. We're boarding together. ๐Ÿ˜ So, any wine I bring will be bottles that they give me. Never implied that I'd pick the wine.
  11. Ahh, that makes sense now. Thanks for clearing things up. We're not wine drinkers, but we're going with our kids and will take a couple of bottles for them when we board. That's mostly why I'm asking. I know the drill, uhem, for liquor, but I didn't know the details for wine policy. Thanks again!
  12. I get the "process" for bringing the extra bottles. My question is about the first 2 (per cabin.) Can one bring those to the MDR and NOT have to pay a fee? If so, how is that determined? Maybe I'm confused a bit so feel free to set me straight. Again, my question is about the first bottle. TIA
  13. Hmm, for non Plat, I thought the discount is offered pre-cruise only. As for ON the ship, I was checking and it appears that for a SEVEN day, there is no difference for Plat and above cruisers. I believe there are minimal savings as the cruise itinerary lengthens though.
  14. I've gotten frozen drinks... mocktails.. so they have blenders there.
