  1. One of the best views of the ship is from the restaurant on Ikea' s second floor.
  2. Too many lazy comics who use foul language and sex as crutches to prop up weak writing.
  3. A lot of work but very satisfying. I found it frees up a lot of space in your luggage for the trip home. M&M events are even more fun on smaller ships.
  4. It's nice to recognize birthdays, wedding anniversaries, honeymoons, first time cruisers. This is where the M&M OP can help. Above all, keep it tight as people have other fun to move on to and sun to soak up. Such RCI events mean a lot to the people who have posted for months on Roll Calls. Thanks!
  5. Sadly, it has been an uneventful summer in the effort to save the SS United States. The only headlines generated were tied to the recent death of Philadelphia philanthropist H.F. "Gerry Lenfest who saved the Big U from the breakers in 2011. His generous donation allowed the SS United States Conservancy to purchase the ship from NCL. It is thought that efforts continue to relocate the ship to NYC.
  6. Journal writing may seem like a lost art. Seems the only writing most do on cruises involves signing drink receipts. I get a lot of satisfaction in keeping a permanent record of fleeting memories. This cruise, I've taken to drawing pics of topics covered with captions and cartoon dialogue. I have appointment time writing to stay on track but nothing real time consuming. I also pick different ship venues in which to write. I have learned from my journals to break from routine. It's good to mix things up. A journal is a wonderful treasure to pass on to children years down the road. Have fun
