I've had no problem (from crew, etc.) using a tripod on Carnival, NCL or American Empress. Just be aware of, or avoid, high traffic areas.

My 16x20 Shellback certificate is my most treasured momento from 4 years in the Navy; 3 years aboard a destroyer. An entire day crawling around the decks on...

No, retain the time zones as they are...just keep them all on "standard" time for that zone for the entire year. No more advancing / retarding clocks twice a year.

Meh!
Just keep the whole country on standard time and be done with it.

When they say "photocopy", don't they mean the authenticated photocopy obtained from the government agency? My BC is a photocopy but, its stamped/embossed as being a copy of the original on file. Not...

Be aware that some stations/stops may be closed during the event. metro.net would (should) provide that information.

Yes, you might be able to disembark at 7 or 7:30 but, if you are using the AQSC "Airport Transfer", you will be subject to that. We weren't looking at an early disembark as we were catching the...

The Empress docks across the Columbia River in Vancouver, Washington, I don't recall when we disembarked in October 2016 but, I believe you will NOT have time to make that 0925 flight out of...

Seen at my local Costco this morning. More places need to do this AND enforce it.
There is still the issue of fake vs legitimate service animal permits however.

My first time underway on a Gearing-class destroyer I got seasick. After that, never again even during, typhoon evasion. My buddy and I enjoyed there being no chow line during meals!

On the NCL Pearl in 2014, my GPS recorded the track from Pier 66 to the mouth of the Strait of Juan de Fuca as 147 miles; 6 hours 46 minutes at an average speed of 21.7 mph. I selected data points...

We too travel Amtrak (cruising or not). Used the train to catch an Alaska cruise out of Seattle and last year an AQSC river cruise on the Snake/Columbia Rivers. We allow at least a day prior for...

In addition to having limited capacity, IIRC, I encountered one (Carnival) that did not work at all when the lights were off and door closed!
This was a while back so perhaps, that is not the case...

The US Topo Maps app will allow you to save the log. My Garmin, which is in there On-the trail series, also allows saving of the track log.

No, so far nothing in that area. I use it primarily for my rail travel. The GPS in your Android will work anywhere you can see the sky. You need to download the maps or charts (ahead of time) for...

I use "US Topo Maps" on my Galaxy S7 and my Tab A. The paid version allows the downloading and caching of maps ahead of time so a wireless or wifi connection is not needed. You download maps for your...

We did the same in October 2016. When I booked, early dining was not available so we had to settle for late. We adapted and had a great week on the river. IIRC they have an early and late show to...

Several years ago we stayed at the Courtyard Seattle Pioneer Square for an Alaska cruise on the NCL Pearl. One of the factors is that we travel by train now (vs flying) and Pioneer was convenient to...

Don't recall the details from out Alaska cruise on the Pearl several years ago but, we did get something like six hours (+or- my memory) free by signing up the first day onboard. Don't recall the...
