  1. Revived memories and flashbacks of growing up in the 60s ..... and yep, one pill made you larger, and one pill made you small. Wondering if that was their plan.
  2. We have done Restless Native twice. I highly recommend it. You pick it up right at the cruise ship dock, so very convenient. First time there was possibility of bad weather, storms, so, Xander gave everyone the option of opting out and getting a refund. I said damn the torpedoes, full speed ahead, and managed to have a good time.
  3. The cabin crawls we have done, there were never any drinks or refreshments. As for looking at different cabin classes, it was nice to see a grand suite, and on the Oasis, you cannot imagine what an Aqua cabin is like. Imagine a balcony that has picnic tables and can hold 50 people comfortably. They are usually held on a sea day, and is an activity that can be somewhat special. One other thing, we have always started out at the highest deck so we could use the stairs and avoid elevators.
  4. A lot depends on the cruise line / ship and itinerary. Our cruises on RCL, Allure, Oasis, and Explorer had great roll calls. They were pretty simple, no slot pulls, gift exchanges, but, we did a cabin crawl and we got together for sail away at the pool bar. Our last three cruises on Celebrity and Princess were about as dull as paint drying. We did have enough scheduled for a MM, but I chose not to participate.
  5. When selecting walkie talkies, go for the loudest ones. When you find out that they do not work on a cruise ship, get one of these for a backup:
  6. I heard that the pool pipes broke, leaked to deck 9, 8, and 7. Initial report said 30 cabins affected.
  7. If you win 80% of the time, why would you not go to the casinos every day and become a mult-millionaire?
  8. Sailed on two Summit cruises, and did the roll calls and connection get together. The roll call pretty much determines and defines the group. On previous cruises with Royal Caribbean, our roll calls scheduled sail away parties, planned / discussed excursions, had a spreadsheet of all the members that listed each city, state, approximate age, what kind of cabin, whether they sailed on the ship previously, been to any of the ports, how many in their group, etc. We did cabin crawls and were able to visit every different cabin category. My experience with the Celebrity roll calls is, in a nutshell, boring. Pretty much nothing to them. And the connections parties pretty much lame.
  9. Water from the tap is fine. Just about as pure as you can get anywhere. But, the Water people need bottled water.
  10. Hear that there is a medical emergency happening now. USCG Medivac.
  11. We took the ferry to St. Georges. Nice ride. We checked out Fort St. Catherines which was pretty cool, then walked over to Tobacco Bay. Then spent some time in St. George.
  12. Been on Oasis and Allure. With son, age 12 / 13. Fantastic cruise ships. Highly recommend both.
