  1. This is what I found when researching before we purchased ours through the cruise planner. According to the article, they are on Adrenaline Beach. https://www.royalcaribbeanblog.com/2016/05/18/spotlight-labadee-beach-loungers
  2. Our experience with LGA over the past couple years has consisted of construction and delays. We have decided to avoid from now on, even if doing so means paying a bit more.
  3. The "third prong" provides a pathway to ground, it's just not the earth ground the bus bar in your home electrical service is connected to.
  4. I was just a little Lance Corporal with VMAQ-2. Originally went to Westpac on a 6-month UDP. Ended up deployed for 19 months due to Desert Storm. We always were put up at Kadena AFB and loved it. The Air Force chow hall was to die for. 🙂
  5. Small world...I was there off and on a few times in 90-91
  6. I drive for both services as my side hustle...my original side hustle is too hard on my body now.. I hear from quite a few people that their ride was cancelled by the driver. It's too bad. Driving for Lyft/Uber isn't rocket science, but it does require some basic customer service. I think it's simple laziness on a driver's part. When I get a pickup in a congested area, I call the passenger to find out exactly where they are. In all the times I've done this, I've only had one person upset with me calling them, and even then, the people they were with thought it was a good thing because I didn't drive by them the first time. Taking a cue from my driving experiences, when I'm a rider at a large airport like Miami, I call the driver to tell them exactly where I am when I see they are five minutes out. In Miami specifically, the app tells me to wait upstairs but the signage on the ground tells me to go to the lower level. I confirmed with our Lyft driver back in October that the driver's side of the app usually sends them to the upper level.
  7. I work in jeans and steel toe boots, so while I may complain a bit, I really enjoy having a reason to get dressed up with my wife. The last formal night we were at I wore a pair of dress pants, a long sleeve button up shirt, fancy shoes (that I bought for the cruise), and a tie. I had to look on YouTube while we were getting dressed to remember how to tie the tie. I clean up good. 🙂
  8. We like to get a coffee mug in each place we visit.
  9. One thing to be aware of is if you lose obc that you used to pay for something in the Cruise Planner. We repriced our last cruise a number of times, and the last time we netted a lower price even factoring in the loss of on board credit. We had used the obc to pay for Voom and promptly forgot to go back in to the cruise planner and pay for it with our card. When we got to the port, we had a "Pier Collections" to settle when we checked in. It was no big deal, but it is something to be cognizant of.
  10. Thank you. 🙂 I am looking forward to having two sea days back to back.
  11. Facetime worked on Mariner for us pretty much everywhere other than our balcony.
  12. If you only want two devices online at any given time, one person has to buy the two device plan. On our first cruise, I made the mistake of buying my wife and I each a two device plan....the result of that was we could use four devices between the two of us and paid twice as much as we needed to. Edit: @SpeedNoodles you are living up to your name. You were so speedy that I didn't even get a notification that you posted as I was typing. 😄
