  1. Thanks all. I called United and because they made the change to my itinerary, they were able to change my reservation to a later flight at no charge. I am happy I changed the flight, I don't like spending my last night of a cruise freaking out about postcruise travel.
  2. We are booked on the Solstice out of Seattle next June. I just got an email from United Airlines to let be know they have changed our flight out of Seattle to 11am. It was 11:30, which I thought was cutting it close but there wasnt anything after noon, I would have had to wait until late night and take a red eye (we are using frequent flyer miles, so choice of flights is limited). Our itinerary from celebrity says we dock at 6am. Not sure when they start letting people off. And I'm not sure how long the ride is using a shuttle. Will I be ok with an 11 am flight?
  3. We live in Florida so we will be driving. It's just as easy for us to bring a gallon than to try to track it down on the ship. Thanks!
  4. We are booked on the Seaside out of Miami on Dec 21. I sent the special needs form in today via email. WE normally cruise Celebrity and know that they supply the cord and water, but MSC doesn't, which I'm fine with, BTW. My question is, am I going to have an issue with security at the port about bringing a gallon of water through security? The port security is not MSC, they are CBP, DHS and TWIC employees. I just don't want to have a problem. Also, when we fly, my husband will get a letter from his doctor that he keeps with the CPAP just in case the airlines have an issue. We drive to Miami so I normally don't bother for a cruise. Should I bother getting a letter for a cruise on MSC? I just don't want to run into any obstacles when checking in. Lastly, where is the plug in the cabin? We have a balcony room. The cord on his CPAP is long, but if the only plug is across from the bed, we will need to bring an extension cord
  5. I only used that title because that is what one of the posters in the thread I read said. OMG, I cannot believe that something I found so silly is now causing me to get questioned. I have always found these boards helpful when I am searching for info on cruises. Sometimes I roll my eyes at long threads about chairs hogs and jeans in the MDR, but overall it's all in good fun and informative. Apparently, I made a major faux pas in even attempting to be humorous. I'm done. If you are happy with a small group of posters dominating the boards, then so be it, but if you want to encourage more people to post this isn't the way to do it.
  6. Hello, I don't post much, because I'm busy and I work full time and don't have time to make thousands of posts on a forum. I only visit these forums if I'm planning for a cruise. I sincerely laughed when I stumbled across the thread on HAL about lanyards being declasse. I didn't realize my motive and profile would be questioned by posting something that I thought was humorous for it's ridiculousness. Sorry I even brought it up. Jeez.
  7. We are loyal X cruisers, but we are looking at other options (Princess, NCL, HAL, RCI) for our Alaska cruise next summer. Whilst perusing the boards looking for information, I happened upon a few threads, mainly from HAL and Princess cruisers, discussing the abomination that is known as lanyard wearing. Apparently for some, lanyards are tacky and distasteful and scream newbie. Apparently one should keep their seapass (or whatever they call it) hidden away on one's pocket or wallet or bag. I was LOL reading the comments. Is this really a thing? I have never given a thought to lanyard vs non-lanyard as something that should be the subject of debate, but I guess it is. I see people on X with lanyards and without, I never give it second thought.
