  1. What are European style usb plugs? Aren't usb plugs the same everywhere? I used my American USB plugs in Paris and London with no problems.
  2. I'm cruising later this month and have port stops that will include Orvieto, Capri, and Petra. I'm wondering how useful my rollator will be in these ports. I'm thinking Petra I might do better with 2 walking sticks? If the cobblestones are very rough, I'm not sure how the rollator wheels would do. Curb cuts don't matter, as the rollator is very lightweight, and I can lift it up a curb, or even a few steps. Anyone have any experience that might help me out? Thanks in advance!
  3. Thanks. Will look into both of these.
  4. We will be in Dublin in May, and have a couple hours between scheduled events. We'd like to get around and see an overview of the city (I've been there before but my DD and DS have not). Time is tight, so waiting for the next HOHO bus is out, plus I've got some mobility issues, so I think a taxi would be better. I've been looking into hiring a taxi for a couple of hours, but can't seem to find one that doesn't do the usual pay-by-the-mile type fare. Any suggestions of who might do this? Recommendations from past experience? We would need to be picked up at the Guinness Storehouse after our tour and returned to the port in time for our afternoon tour. Thanks!
  5. Hopefully just speculation. The Nova's delay doesn't mean Spectrum will necessarily be delayed. Right? RIGHT??? Fingers crossed...
  6. Hi everyone. I'm a Lifetime member but not at goal (30+ pounds above goal, actually...:o) All my cruising is definitely NOT helping the situation! I went back on WW last month after my last cruise. Dropped 14 pounds really fast, but since then I've either been plateaued or gaining. Even though I was eating exactly the same, just how I should be, No weight loss. Talk about frustrating! This past week has been really hard--not nearly enough sleep, and too many "indiscretions" with food. Monday we had a graduation party for my nephew and I ate what I wanted to (which really wasn't bad), and then had TWO pieces of cake! I generally don't eat any sweets when I'm on WW, because it triggers me, but this was from a bakery that I know is fantastic, and I just decided to eat some. So I hop on the scale 2 days later and I'm up FOUR pounds?!? This makes No sense--just from 2 pieces of cake? So now I'm just floundering and eating everything I shouldn't. Heck, if I can't lose when I eat right, why bother? (I know, that's NOT helping...) I leave for a 7 day cruise in 2 weeks. I decided to eat eggs, fruit and a little oatmeal for breakfast, salad for lunch most days, fruit for snacks, and try to go with fish for dinner as much as I can. I will have ONE drink during cocktail hour (Baileys with milk, thank you very much!), and try not to go too crazy with the goodies there. I am really hoping this will work, since I have 4 more cruises just this year. I would LOVE to be at goal by the end of the year, but at the rate I'm going, I'll be lucky to get there by the end of the decade
  7. What are the beaches like? Nice smooth sand, or rocky? Do you need water shoes or can you just walk in without worrying about rocks? Are the beaches deep (from back of beach to water)? Is there plenty of shade? Never been there, and can't seem to find the answers to these questions on here. Thanks
  8. I confirmed with Flavio today that Enzo will be taking over on 4/13 Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. And still No word on release date. Assuming it's Fall of 2019, they're kinda late with that info. We booked the Symphony TA in January of 17 for October of 18. If Symphony is going to Hong Kong by December of 19, then you'd think the ride from Europe, through the Suez Canal, and down across to Asia would have to happen by sometime in November at the latest. Wonder when they'll spill the beans???
  10. On Brilliance right now. Flavio is the AM, through the end of this TA. He doesn't know yet who will replace him, but I'll check back in a few days to ask again.
  11. Wow, Lloyd! I'm surprised to see her so far along already! When is the expected delivery?
