  1. Analog only. As for using the phone, I do that sometimes. I was annoyed when my son's friend gave me a hard time about wearing a watch. He asked why I didn't just use my phone and I asked him if he meant "a pocket watch" which is pretty much what using a phone is all about when using it instead of a watch.
  2. This confuses me. Lunch is offered daily. In the MDR. Pub Lunch is not regular lunch and is never offered daily on any cruise.
  3. Working in IT we had PEBKAC (Problem Exists Between Keyboard And Chair ) and PICNIC (Problem In Chair Not In Computer), and, of course Eye Dee Ten Tee (IDIOT). Of course one couldn't enter those errors into the system. When I described an problem as a Layer 8 Network Issue only one person in the IT department (and none in my peer user group) even got what I meant. It was sad. Working with people who have never used any system other than point and click made it hard sometimes.
  4. At least it's a different Escape Room. They seem to run the same one on the other ships so, if you've done it once, there's no point in doing it on another cruise. I found that out the hard way. Poop. I haven't heard of them charging for it though. I certainly wasn't charged. It wasn't worth $5.
  5. I've been told that Holland America has very good prices on liquor for your cabin. I haven't sailed with them but that's what people here on CC tell me.
  6. Notice that it calls for "parts" not ounces! It's a good drink. I once had someone bring it to me with a couple of olives in it. I sent it back. YUK! I don't think olives go with the Cointreau. The twist works much better. That's why I don't think Bitters belongs in the drink either.
  7. GAK! Princess has changed my Chairman of the Board. I don't mind the change in the brand of Gin but I can't understand why they added bitters. I'll likely forget they changed the recipe and be peeved when I taste the thing. Hopefully I will remember to order it without bitters. What a stupid change to a previously great drink.
  8. Someone used a dryer sheet in the load before ours but my wife didn't know it. My socks made my legs and ankles break out big time. I hate those things. They're toxic.
  9. I have 2 watches. That's enough for me. I wear the Citizen Eco Drive most of the time. I wear the other watch after 6 PM on cruise ships and when we go out somewhere nice for dinner. I'm not fancy enough to have a bunch of snazzy watches. Also, I'm never overburdened with "too much" OBC.
  10. I actually drink the Chairman of the Board martini. No vermouth. No olive. No problem. Chairman of the Board 3 parts Grey Goose Vodka 3 parts Bombay Sapphire Gin 1 part Cointreau Chilled over ice and strained Rim glass with twist then use as garnish
  11. I have also noted that the last couple of seats down in the bottom section have a handicapped logo on them. There's no place for a scooter but mobility restricted folks can use those seats and not have to be up in the nosebleed section. We thought it was pretty lame when we cruised with our son who is in a wheelchair that there is so very little space available. We had to be in the very back behind the seats and it was usually totally full back there due to all the scooters, etc.
  12. List of whiskies onboard. Taken from the Beverage Package Evaluator spreadsheet. Might be outdated but pretty good list anyway.
  13. Too late. Already spent the money for school a long time ago.
  14. My wife has a theory about doorways. You know how you walk through one and suddenly don't remember why you went into a room? It's the freaking doorway! Once in a while it works the other way and, when you go back through the same doorway, you suddenly remember what you were doing in the first place. Doorways. Definitely dangerous...
