  1. Reading other posts or a 30 second google search would answer your issue.
  2. Very possible. But, without knowing everything the police have discovered, and what they have not figured out - they may not have a suspect. For all we know.... not gonna start rumors... but there are things that MIGHT have taken place that may not result in a charge. Nobody here knows, that is for sure.
  3. What makes you feel this is a "blackout"? Sometimes there just is no more to report. People die daily under strange circumstances and lots of them never get reported on again.
  4. Maybe, maybe not. Speed is often figured in our heads on perception. Your ship could be moving even faster, but you really do not feel that much. You can EASILY see the movement of the other ship. Said another way. If both ships are moving at exactly 20 knots, then the relative difference between the ships is 40 knots. If your mind can visually see the other ship moving, and fools you into thinking you are barely moving, the perception is the other ship is really moving fast.
  5. Of course the Cruise Line wants to keep it rather quiet. Do not blame them at all. Can not believe the knife thing continues to pop up. As to the staff keeping track in the dining room - that is another laugh. Along with being very difficult, they have knives available in the buffet that NOBODY could keep track of. Really folks, do you think it is that hard to have a knife in your luggage? LOL! As to anyone worried about their family getting home - there should be no more concern than any other trip. Just one incident.
  6. I do not think anyone was "justifying" murder. They just pointed out it may have played a factor. And the fact that some folks can get falling down drunk and not do anything bad, and another person can have one drink and go into a rage does not mean much of anything either. It was very early in the morning/late at night and a "possible" contributing factor MIGHT be drinking. One could come up with a handfull of assumptions and only some would turn out correct. Again, I did not see anyone "justify" murder - or the cause.
  7. As a good place to murder someone... it would be reasonable to assume maybe it was not planned, but happened during an argument, etc. Just sayin it is possible. After all, based on what we know, she could have also survived if she hit things differently.
  8. As to bottled water, they usually hand some out as you leave the ship each day. We had to stop taking them as they began to pile up in our room. We drink more wine than water - LOL!
  9. We ate in the buffet often as the food is really good and the wine service is great. Never had a problem at all.
  10. Totally agree. I find doing it yourself is way easier. No worry about "meeting" up with somebody. And if a bus, no waiting for it to fill up, or Aunt Lucy to finally arrive. If you decide to sit down for a minute in the airport - no big deal. When leaving hotel, you are not forced to show up un the lobby at 10am for a bus that does not leave until 11am, or worse. Sure, you handle your own bags on your own. We actually prefer to do that. About the only extra think you might need to do is to write down the name of the hotel and address in the local language.
  11. Apparently SOME folks have trouble booking excursions. We waiting a month or so to book ours and had no problem. Guess we were lucky. And, as to dinner - I have no idea what mood I am going to be in 3 months from now. Heck, once we FINALLY picked a restaurant to go to last night, it still took 20 minutes for folks to make a dinner selection. LOL!
  12. If Viking will work with you. Or possibly dealing with the airline direct. BUT - you might want to look up what the cost is for business. Guessing you would fly out of Boston maybe, but the cost could easily be $2-$4000 per person. Lots of variables. You could go online to see what the going prices are today. Viking may get a discount, but not too much if the airline thinks they can sell the seat at the going price.
  13. I have seen them sometimes advertise with and without the airfare deal. Since we book our own, I look for those. I would assume they figure a lower price variance when booking from the UK or Europe knowing the flight cost will be less.
