  1. I'll also point out that discussion/questioning decisions made by moderators/admins by posting are not allowed. I think this thread may go poof.
  2. While we prefer sailing west. It's easier to handle five or six 25 hour days, than five or six 23 hour days.
  3. I would hope not. I believe all those pianos are in public areas. I'm not sure I'd want to be subject to someone's practice sessions.
  4. It depends on the cruise line. There is a time limit from the original booking date as to when (if) you can transfer to a TA. Some cruise lines it's as short as 30 days, others it's 60. There may be other time limits, I don't know.

  6. If you require something like Dramamine, then, yes, you take it for the duration of the cruise. There's also Bonine (meclizine) that's less likely to put you to sleep, that some people find effective. But, it's a good idea to have a talk with your doctor about the possibilities.
  7. Couple of things - sailing out of Orlando, you have to cross the current (can be rough) and that is often an issue for those people with motion sickness. Regarding the patch on Amazon - that's the herbal patch, right? Not everyone responds to the various motion sickness medications the same way. Be aware that the scopolomine patch can have some serious side effects. Have you tried the various over the counter options?
  8. Go the the main forum page: https://boards.cruisecritic.com/ Scroll down to the "Special Interest Cruising" section (it's a little ways down). "Theme Cruises" is there, click on that link: https://boards.cruisecritic.com/forum/117-theme-cruises/ For the record, Roll Calls is also it's own forum. You can also find that by scrolling down the main forum page.
  9. We use both. Sometimes we just book directly. Other times we use a TA. Depends on whether the TA gives us any perks for using them.
  10. Short answer: email help@cruisecritic.com and tell them your username, your old email and your new email addresses.
  11. The Shmoo was a lovable bowling pin-shaped whiskered creature. The Shmoo yielded milk, eggs, cheesecake, and just about anything else you might desire. Shmoo meat when roasted was pork, when broiled it was steak, and when fried it was chicken. The eyes of a Shmoo made good suspender buttons and its whiskers made fine toothpicks. The skin when cut thin served as high quality cloth; cut thick it was leather, and cut in strips it became boards for housing. During the Soviet Union's blockade of West Berlin, Germany in 1948, candy-filled Shmoos were air-dropped to hungry West Berliners from transport planes by America's 17th Military Airport Squadron. The commanders of the Berlin airlift had cabled Capp, requesting the inflatable Shmoos as part of Operation: Little Vittles. "When the candy-chocked Shmoos were dropped, a near-riot resulted...." (Reported in Newsweek—11 October 1948)
  12. If we have to do laundry on a cruise, and there's no self wash availability, I hand wash underwear/socks and light weight shirts. Everything else goes to the laundry.
  13. The close space isn't that "little", and yes, there are hangers. If you need more, just ask your room steward.
