  1. It was an umbrella, not a chair. AN UMBRELLA, a big old umbrella, not a personal item. People shouldn't move those anyway. And people telling people to get into people's faces is not good. Find the crew, work it out with them. BUT AN UMBRELLA, for heaven's sakes I can't understand why people can't distinguish between a big old umbrella which obviously is supposed to stay in one place and a chair.
  2. Sorry for the loss of your husband. I have a deposit for the 2023 cruise. Mine has not been activated. I assume now and assumed even when I put down the deposit that there would be too many people from 2020, 2021 and 2022 bookings to fill demand.
  3. That is what I say, find a deck hand. I don't think anyone should be moving those heavy umbrellas. That is what I have said in all of my postings. Let the crew deal with this one. Going vigilante or smart mouth on some one accomplishes nothing and simply creates a bad scene onboard.
  4. I don't think you can put a sign on the umbrella, chair yes, umbrella no. If the OP is still on the ship I would like them to ask a crew member about moving the umbrellas
  5. I think it was rude, no doubt about that, but I think there is nothing to be done about it unless there is a rule about not moving ship furnishings. I know many clubs and other public venues I visit the patrons are strictly not allowed to move furnishings about. They must get the staff to do so. That is likely the rule on ships also but probably a minuscule part of the crew training. This is about an umbrella on a heavy windproof stand not simply an outdoor dining room table chair. It was probably quite heavy
  6. I think that is probably right, unfortunately. I truly believe guests shouldn’t be and probably are not allowed to move furnishings.
  7. As it is community problem that was not actively being used they were within their rights to move it unless there is a rule about not moving furnishings. There may well be a rule regarding pax not moving furnishings to prevent injury. If that is the case, like any other infraction, you would need to ask the staff to enforce the rule. I agree with with those who recommended not being confrontational
  8. It is simple math. When I don't have a package I always look for Happy Hour deals and Sip and Savor events. On my last cruise I could have had a before dinner drink nearly every day at half price. Most drinks are $11 to $15 so you can do your math.
  9. Yes it does have the freestyle machine. With covid I will be curious to see if they are operational as they are usually fully self serve.
  10. If you get hacked on public WiFi and proprietary data is compromised they will know. We were never allowed to carry digital data
  11. I was planning on ordering my own for the next cruise as a celebration for the new era AC (after Covid)😉
  12. We are traveling by the Rocky Mountaineer next summer, DH’s bucket list. We will do the cruise with the Yukon tour also. We have been to Alaska but not the Yukon. It is beautiful county but I still prefer the east coast of Canada
  13. Great topic. I would sail somewhere in the North Atlantic, the Canadian maritimes or Norway would do nicely. I love the icebergs at sea and the hiking onshore. And I haven’t yet seen a puffin😠
  14. I wonder if it is acting as a crew shuttle or perhaps sailing cdc provisional cruises, are those still a thing? Port fees are very expensive as are paying the longshoremen unions.
