    Insurance through Credit Card

    You'll need to look into actual costs for those things. I found this, indicating that it can cost much more than that: What does a typical evacuation cost? Travelex Travel Insurance recently released information about the average costs of a medical evacuation. According to their statistics, the average medical evacuation within North America costs $25,000. From Europe, the cost can reach $50,000. The average cost of a nurse escort is $11,000 within North America and $24,000 from Europe. That's just for the evacuation, not a nurse, if required, or any hospital costs prior to the evacuation.

    Roll Call Title Problem

    Well, if the Roll Call finder tool is still working the way it did before the move, just changing the title won't get it found. Once the thread is started, it seems it only has one shot at being found that way. What you can do now is to contact help@cruisecritic.com and ask that the thread link be made manually.

    Bugs & glitches all fixed?

    Well, that's the theory. There are no more bugs & glitches. Just the routine errors that keep popping up. They announced about a week ago that the Bugs & Glitches forum was going to be closed on Nov 5.

    Any chance of getting a mobile app back?

    Depends on what device you're using. On laptop/desktop, when you click on the "Search" in the search window (upper right) you get a pull down with options. "This forum" is one of them.

    Missing roll call - May 12, 2019

    Don't know if it was accepted or if someone was pro-active and made a request (via "report post" or directly to mods) to add the link to the Roll Call finder.

    Tender Unloading Accident on Maasdam

    Yeah, that's the site that many of us are aware of as one that's less than reliable about the news it disperses.

    Strange posts?

    "Difficult to see" is because it doesn't show up unless your cursor is somewhere in the post you want to report.

    cannot log in

    I'm going to have to say you are able to log in, otherwise you couldn't have posted. Your Roll Call is till there (although on the second page with no new posts since September) https://boards.cruisecritic.com/topic/2460276-norweigan-spirit-roll-call-february-14-2019/ I'm not sure why your roll call doesn't show up on the "Find Your Roll Call" link, unless it has to do with the misspelling of "Norwegian" in the title.

    How to delete my account

    You can't. Once you've posted, posts are forever here. You can, however, just never show up/post here again. Eventually your posts should drop way down the list.

    turn off "newest photos" feature?

    You can block the photos using AdBlock Plus. I did it. Here's how: https://boards.cruisecritic.com/topic/2599244-the-only-thing-worse-than-not-turning-off-avatars-is-having-to-view-newest-photos/?tab=comments#comment-56145467

    Error 2F173/L

    I found, the first time after the move to the new format, that, even though I was logged in on all the Cruise Critic forums, when I did a search on the "Find Your Roll Call" link, I had to log in there, also, in order to actually view/access any of the specific roll call functions I wanted. Once I logged in there on that link, I was able to access any roll calls' functions (not just the one I first logged at).

    turn off "newest photos" feature?

    Hear, hear! It's much like being forced to look at random strangers vacation pictures...., oh, wait, that's exactly what it is.

    Roll Calls not appearing on lists

    It's not the new software, it's always had that suggested format. The "Find Your Roll Call" link has always been bad. And the issue with that particular Roll Call IS the date format. It should be "February 17, 2019" NOT "February 17/2019". The Roll Call finder tool cannot see it, so it won't show up automatically in the "Find Your Roll Call" link.
