  1. The funny part was the wrong photo, not the sick woman.
  2. I just got a giggle from the San Francisco Chronicle. They have a story about the Coast Guard lifting an ill woman from the Star off the coast of California. The article includes a photo of the Star, the old Star from 1989.
  3. I guess I should have asked if the butler would arrange for pressing to be done. It has been suggested on these boards that one tips the butler $10/pp per day. If that is the case, then what do they do for that money? Some on these boards have indicated that I should not dare to ask the butler to do anything because they are too busy. How silly is that? Yes, I am in a Penthouse Suite or I would not be asking about the butler's duties.
  4. If not, how can I get wrinkles out of my clothes after unpacking? Rick
  5. Thanks Deb & Jack. I knew there had to be something, somewhere. Makes sense that a coffee bar would be open early! The Freestyle Daily that I saw shows it opening at noon. That was sure bad info. Regards, Rick
  6. Is there alcohol in the mini bar fridge? If so, what and what is the cost? Can I get cocktails from room service; what is the cost? I like a Bloody Mary in the morning, but the bars don't open until 11:30, which is a bit late, especially if you are going on an excursion. Rick
  7. My husband wants to take this excursion. I am not so sure. I use a portable oxygen concentrator and would need to park it (and myself) on a hard surface out of the sand. Is there such a place, a boardwalk or something, on this excursion? Rick
  8. Is there no side chair in the seating area, just the sofa? I will be in 10020 this fall. I assume that they are the same. Rick
  9. We are scheduled to be in NOLA for Mardi Gras. I travel with a portable oxygen concentrator. It is on wheels and the size of a small carry on. Also, I have a bad back and have to stop and sit frequently while walking. Friends have suggested that I will have trouble in the crowds around the parades. Will I trip people with my machine or get hurt myself? I imagine it is like being in a crowded bar where everyone is cheek to jowl. Should I cancel this trip which is on my bucket list? Regards, Rick
  10. Please -- Those or you who are sailing POA, would you report back here whether or not you sail around the south end the Big Island. I would love to see the eruptions (from a distance, of course). Rick
