  1. I don't plan to purchase Voom. Will I still be able to take pictures onboard using my iPhone?
  2. Can you give me a link to the plastic holders on amazon?
  3. I think that it's surge protectors that are prohibited. The strip I bought https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01LXLUM0L/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1 is described as being "fully cruise compliant." It also calls itself a "charging station" as opposed to a power strip, which it actually is. Do you think it will be prohibited?
  4. We're going on our first cruise ever, too, on Brilliance, April 9, 2020. I've been making the most of the anticipation by reading this blog and so far I've bought (on amazon.com) lanyards, magnetic hooks, a pill organizer, and a power strip. And a guide book with a map of Cozumel. We probably don't really need all that, but it's fun to get ready. I'm thinking about clothes to pack, but since we live in Florida it will probably be just our usual clothes. I plan to do a lot of loafing and hanging very loose, just enjoying the sea and salt air.
  5. I hope you post responses "as one very familiar with the ship" to tell them the story is full of errors and to set them straight!
  6. I think I would really appreciate that. Saving money is not as important to me as not getting exhausted. Is that the Terminal main lot you're referring to?
  7. Thanks. I have no idea what the parking fees are . . . I'll look into them. I'm happy to know there is parking close to the terminal.
  8. I'm handicapped (walking) and would like my husband to be able to drop me off at the terminal and park nearby. I don't know the lay of the land . . . what do you recommend?
  9. I'm counting on it! I think we'll have a wonderful time . . . and that it will be NOTHING like the navy!!! πŸ˜€
  10. Thanks for all your responses. My hubby claims to be coming along on this cruise very reluctantly, because he hated every one of his 1,461 days aboard a U.S. Navy oil tanker. He's the one who wanted to know if he could bring his headset. I plan to send him on a reconnaissance tour of the ship while I soak up the view from our balcony. I expect he'll relax and find great spots and then we'll both have a wonderful time.
  11. If it's for health reasons that you're thinking of switching to the Impossible Burger, you may want to consider this (copied from https://www.goodhousekeeping.com/health/diet-nutrition/a27286383/impossible-burger/ , which please see): " Is an Impossible Burger healthy? Compared to a same-sized beef patty, an Impossible Burger contains a comparable amount of calories (240 to 260), but it scores lower in a few regards. The first is that it contains way less protein β€” 19 grams versus 28 grams β€” which may make it less filling, London says. "The bigger downside of the Impossible Burger is that it’s also 2 grams higher in saturated fat, likely because of the coconut oil that's added," she adds. "Coconut oilcontains the highest saturated fat content of any plant-based oil, despite its super 'health halo.'" The Impossible Burger also contains a lot more sodium β€” about 15% of your recommended value, compared to just 4% in plain beef.
  12. i'm a pescatarian (who doesn't always want to have seafood) . . . and I've found that by reading the whole menu I can get a picture in my mind of what they have in the kitchen and can order something wonderful that isn't on the menu . . . such as pasta with broccoli or spinach and grilled shrimp, or hold the shrimp and toss the pasta with some delectable cheese, or ask for a stir-fry of vegetables with rice or quinoa . . . in other words, just ask myself what I would put together for myself if I had access to the larder. Sometimes I order just sides, or two entrees, or soup plus an appetizer. Thinking outside the box can be very rewarding.
