  1. Thank you. We aren't big alcohol drinkers, but I do want to indulge! I didn't remember that pricing from so long ago.. ironically, this cruise we are taking on 11/10 pricing is just the SAME as it was in 1996. The only difference is the airfare. Would be interested in speaking w/the other Washington family that is going on the very same trip/date !
  2. I believe I read there are three. We are doing the same cruise for 11/10/19. I packed semi formal - cocktail dress and dress slacks. My guys will have dress slacks and nice shirts, but no jacket. It's not as super formal as people think. Our last cruise was 6/96 on NCL, but I remember the attire as I took a Lot of photos! :) * I don't want to be OT, b/c I don't know where to post, but i would like to know the price of alcoholic drinks if you buy them at the pool and such. We're not forking out nearly $1K/pp to drink Coke all day. I'm actually bringing those drink sticks for the guys to pour into water.
  3. cool enough to keep my insulin cold, bottles of water, juice and milk. 9 7 19 We're on the Freedom of the Seas. Are any restaurants open 24/7? Since it is now 2019, I would like to know how much soda is in the machines? The beverage pkg is outrageously expensive, like $700/pp. I don't drink soda, nor juices, and not much liquor, so, for the family, wondered about the machines? Do they use cash or again, on your cabin card? THX
  4. 9 7 19 Thank you! We have a cabin w/a balcony, and I wondered was it large enough for that!!!

  6. I am using empty Pringles cans to fill w/snacks for spouse, son and myself. Also, bringing gal zip top bags in case they don't like the cans.. CYA Room service can add up quickly! I do suggest you grab a few things before any establishment closes, ie: after dinner.
  7. 9 6 19 Suggestion, just in case you're out all day, and you might not want to spend money on snacks, OR, you don't like the food, BRING snacks. It has been suggested you are not allowed to bring food off the ship. I have. I'm diabetic, but I don't want to drag tons of snack food in my luggage. (we'll be en route to PR for almost 18 hrs, then another 7 hrs before we leave port. So, I usually will grab an apple, orange, crackers are usually in pkgs on board. Sometimes, pastries as well. This time prob a sandwich, just in case. I bring a LOT of ziptop bags for all reasons, but this mostly. I am using empty Pringles cans to fill w/snacks for spouse, son and myself.

  8. 8 13 19 I found this recent article too. I like to keep all my insulin COLD when I'm going to be en route for like 17 hrs soon: 3-1-1 RULE AND LIQUIDS Unless you have avoided flying since 2001, you are likely aware of the 3-1-1 rule that states you have to pack liquids (like shampoo) in a clear, plastic zip lock to go through security. The liquids have to be 3.4 ounces or less as well. Unfortunately, TSA applies these rules to food that they consider to be liquid. The following items are listed as a liquid/gel on TSA's website: - Nut butter (squeeze packs included) - Jam/jelly - Yogurt - Oil and vinegar - Creamy cheese - Salsa - Soups Items that are not specifically identified as liquid or gel on the TSA website, but fit the same description include: - Pudding/ Jell-O - Hummus - Salad dressing - Fruit cups with syrup - Apple sauce GEL PACKS & TIPS TO KEEP YOUR FOOD COLD The good news is TSA will allow you to go through security with an icepack, as long as the icepack is frozen solid during screening. The TSA website states, "If frozen liquid items are partially melted, slushy, or have any liquid at the bottom of the container, they must meet 3-1-1 liquids requirements." - Make sure you freeze your gel packs for at least 24 hours before your trip. - Pack your gel packs right before you head to the airport. - Leave your 6 Pack Bag in the trunk of your car (out of the sun) while you drive to the airport. - Keep everything in your bag colder by completely freezing at least one of your meals. Place the frozen meal container in the middle of the non-frozen. I place the frozen meal in the middle row of my Innovator along with the frozen gel packs and have never had any issues. - If you are concerned about your ice packs melting before you get to security, add some other frozen items to your 6 Pack Bag like frozen grapes, peas or carrots. This will help to keep the entire bag cooler, keeping the gel packs colder longer. - Pack a few extra zip lock bags in case your gel packs do get slushy and you have to throw them away. You can fill the zip lock bags with ice after you have been through security to keep your food cold.
  9. you're prob right.. i just checked the definition, lol, man, i am getting OLD.
  10. NCL - Norwegian Cruise Line. PR to Eastern Carrib Ship? I do not recall. Do NOT reply on the medical offices!! I have diabetes. My first cruise, I accidentally forgot half my supplies. On board, they only had one size syringe and I take microunits so I was sick almost the entire trip. It WAS MY FAULT. However, I found out only an RN was aboard, no MD. Just one RN for thousands of passengers. I too have GI issues and use a heating pad a lot. I am bringing it for our upcoming cruise. I suggest you bring, esp,if it's your 1st cruise, or if you've got kids, to plan ahead (Bursar's desk is ALWAYS FILLED w/passengers being sea sick) My bag has: pepto cough drops Benadryl Motrin ASA Tums Insect Repel Bandaids Dramamine Nexium (b/c it works in 10 min!) Immodium Neosporin and, enough diabetic supplies for a MONTH (cruise is 7 days)
