  1. Many aerosols are flammable. Those are the ones that are an issue. They used to use CFCs to pressurize cans. But CFCs got removed to save the ozone. So many aerosol cans are pressurized with butane or propane or a mixture of both. YES, the same butane in cigarette lighters and the same propane like your gas grill. Think flame thrower. The
  2. That is NOT what Chengkp75 has said before. They RO SEA WATER. Potable water brought on board is not treated. They rely on shore side treatment. To do what you are saying would require a large storage tank for raw water, and a separate storage tank for treated water.
  3. Just got off Grandeur last weekend (sailed 1/31), and yeap, plastic bottles of water at all the bars.
  4. $30,000 with a med evac flight is cheap. My mother's med evac flight from Halifax to DC was $29,000 by itself. YES, you REALLY want to have medical and med evac insurance coverage. You DO NOT have to insure the cruise fare. This can save a LOT on the insurance price.
  5. Huh? I get the OBC from booking on board, even when transferring the booking to my TA. I haven't had a reduced deposit, as we normally do suites.
  6. It is offered. At least by Delta. You need to supply them with the name of the deceased, and the name of the funeral home that is handling the remains. They will book a bereavement fare, subject to confirmation. But like other comments, with Carnival, the OP got sick. With is one, it is NOT the traveler. NOT apples to apples.
  7. This has been my experience. They have told me the TA that is listed, and ask if I want to use the same one, a different one, or none (I DO use the same one) .
  8. DUH. That is why I posted this. This is the first I have seen what Enchantments schedule will be.
  9. I was just one Grandeur, and they published list of cruises for Enchantment, starting with the April 17, 2021 re-positioning from San Juan to Baltimore. Here it is: Enchantment Baltimore.pdf
  10. I have not been charged corkage in the past 4 years. I have the Enchantment deployment for Baltimore. I will post in a separate thread.

    " On boarding day, each stateroom may bring up to two 750 ml bottles of wine or champagne, as long as one guest is of legal drinking age. Corkscrews will be provided for guests to enjoy their drinks in their stateroom. If guests wish to enjoy their wine or champagne in our dining or bar venues, there will be a corkage fee applied. Guests may also bring non-alcoholic beverages as carry-on items on boarding day. Non-alcoholic beverages may not exceed 12 standard (17 oz.) cans, bottles or cartons per stateroom. Milk and distilled water brought on for infant, medical, or dietary use are permitted. " https://www.royalcaribbean.com/faq/questions/food-drink-onboard-policy
  12. Yeap, and you too can get a $500 fine (US) or more in some countries.
  13. Let's see, it is REALLY difficult. 😄 You read the label, and see if it says REEF-SAFE. If it says that, it is. If it does not say that, it is likely not.
  14. The funniest one I say was a meme about Coronavirus going well with Lyme disease. 😄
  15. Yes, and C&A system will NOT allow the Jr to be added to the last name. Well DUH, that would make sense. Have ONE set of tables with data on the person.
