  1. Haifa Port taken from the Baha’i Gardens
  2. I’m not sure I’m reading this right. Does it mean you’ll be on the Empress on November 15th?
  3. I have posted it as a reply to posts by clueless people who ask, "Why would there be an open window in the children's play area on the 11th deck of a ship?" I so want to reply to them, "Hey, go one deck up and you will see an entire deck surrounded by just OPEN railings!!! How careless of the cruise company!!!" (Sarcasm intended)
  4. EXACTLY! This is the reason why I have gotten very defensive of Royal on this issue. I am beyond appalled by the lawyer's allegations and spin on the narrative. The way I see it, the cause of the accident is NOT the children's play area being on that deck with the windows, NOT the open window, NOT the toddler being fond of banging glass on hockey games, NOT the lack of additional safety measures taken by Royal ... IT IS THE GRANDFATHER PUTTING THE TODDLER ON THE RAILING!!!
  5. I hate reading comments on social media pages of people who obviously have never been on a Royal Caribbean ship and maybe have never cruised all their life so I made this...
  6. I do not like Royal to settle. It will only encourage more stupid and risky behavior among thrill-seeking cruisers.
  7. Believe me, I want to book a cruise on the Freedom just to do an "amateur investigation" on this incident. I want to take the lawyer's statements on media and the parents' statements on NBC and refute all of them in a video.
  8. NBC is still pushing back on the ship's negligence based on the family's lawyer's statement. The TODAY show was quoting the family as saying, "Royal Caribbean could have prevented the accident by taking additional safety precautions." For those of us who have sailed on Royal Caribbean ships, what ADDITIONAL safety precautions could the company have take in this situation? Do we want (more) signage on every open ledge, window, and balcony? Do we want barriers to those areas? Do we want kids banned from those areas?
  9. I agree. The lawyer making press releases a few days after the tragedy and the parents appearing on the Today show pushing the narrative about the "window in the children's play area", which was "not distinguishable whether is was open or closed" for a grandfather who only wanted to give his granddaughter the chance to "bang the glass" which she loved to "do at hockey games" opened them to more scrutiny.
  10. I'm going on the Empress mid-November. If you have anything you would like me to spy out for you, picture of the ship you want me to take, I'd gladly do it.
  11. Have some light earplugs with you next time.
  12. There's a "Soak Up Adventure Sale" going on. Whenever a promo or a sales event is announced by Royal, I do mock "incognito" bookings of cruises I have already reserved and those I've been planning to book. I've been doing this for about two years now and I have yet to see a real and substantial reduction in the price. I am the type of consumer who finds this an insult to my (limited) intelligence. It's like stores who jack up prices to create the illusion of a sale. As an aside, I hate that Bed, Bath, & Beyond (my budget) prices their items 20% more than other stores so you can feel you're getting a discount when you use their never expiring coupons. Don't get me wrong, I love Royal and I'm "loyal to Royal", but this approach to marketing is not one of my favorites.
