  1. Interesting - I can access the personalizer using Edge, but not FireFox.
  2. We were in an aft inside (Sapphire Princess, 21-night sailing Feb 2) and received an upgrade to an obstructed OV. I'm guessing a 4-person group perhaps needed that inside and so our party of 3 got moved to a 3-berth cabin that was available. Not entirely sure what the third berth will be like, but we will make it work. We got a fantastic deal of $1800 CAD (about $1360 USD) per person.
  3. Agree with the above - our cabin on the Royal had a card already in the slot. We just turned off the lights when we left the cabin as we would normally do at home.
  4. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AbVPq4QjCug https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=903y1zU5Kzg There are others too.
  5. Fair enough. There are other ships from that season there, so I thought the Koningsdam would be as well.
  6. Try Youtube. I've found lots of similar shows there.
  7. I quite enjoyed the episode - it was 50% about Norway and shore excursions, 25% on the bridge/about the captain, and 25% about the ship, mostly the chefs and dance troupe. Didn't see as much of the ship as I would have thought, but still enjoyed it.
  8. I don't have the equipment to transfer it from my PVR, but keep looking through youtube, dailymotion, and vimeo... somebody does, and will post it for all to enjoy.
  9. You will need to check your listings for that. Use the search function on your PVR or your cable provider may have have webpage that has such information. In my area though, it's on Sunday afternoon (March 31)
  10. On Discovery Channel, Mighty Cruise Ships is back for season 3, and is kicking off with a show about the Koningsdam. It's fun going 'behind the scenes' a little bit, and seeing new ships.
  11. Exactly. According to Carnival's FAQ on the matter, those outside their arrival time "may experience longer waits". I don't know if every Port has an Early/Late embarcation line, so it'd be a good idea to check before you go.
  12. You can set OM to 'Safety mode', but because it acts as your Cruise card, you can't ditch it all together; you'll still need to use it to open your cabin door and make purchases (drinks and whatnot)
  13. I read this forum mostly on my android phone. Other forums, the pages stay in the cache of my browser, so I don't have to access the internet again to read it, if I turn my phone off. Cruise Critic was the same, until the so-called 'upgrade'. Now I have to connect to the internet each time I want to read a page/thread, which is hard when you have no data, and no wifi signal in the area.
  14. If you find cash too impersonal, the best gift a is letter written to guest services, pointing out how your cabin steward made your cruise wonderful. Staff with letters of commendation from passengers get bonuses/promotions ahead of those who don't.
