  1. Thanks for the review and pics. Will miss Lady-G when she leaves the fleet. We will say farewell come April 4th after a half dozen cruises.
  2. One of the best views of the ship is from the restaurant on Ikea' s second floor.
  3. Too many lazy comics who use foul language and sex as crutches to prop up weak writing.
  4. 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.
  5. 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!
  6. 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.
  7. It's the latest effort to raise awareness and save the SS United States which continues to languish in rust in south Philadelphia. A fundraiser is planned by the SS United States Conservancy tomorrow night (7/31) at the south Philadelphia Ikea store which has a great view of the docked ship across Columbus Boulevard. As you may know "the Big U" is still owned by NCL but the cruise line has offered the legendary liner for sale. Fans are trying to keep the ship from going to the breakers. In a positive development, Philadelphia area philanthropist H.F. Lenfest has pledged a $300,000 matching grant to help in any non profit purchase. NCL is said to be seeking $20 million for the world's fastest ocean liner. Featured speakers at the event include the granddaughter of the ship's designer, William Francis Gibbs. A buffet dinner will be served. Donation/admission is tax deductible. http://ssunitedstatesconservancy.org...day-july-31st/
