  1. Based on the height of the railing I would say one of the reasons it is there is prevent adults from leaning out the windows and falling out. Reason enough not to put a child up there. Also when the window is open you can see all the window runners so I suspect if you asked 10,000 adults 9,999 would be able to tell it was open.
  2. This is a photo I found of the railing in relation to the window.
  3. We got a free picture on Independence as part of the diamond package. After the www.ourcruisephotos.com sent a link with all the photos taken onboard for purchase. They were more expensive than ship prices. We had 30 days to purchase the ones we wanted. Looks like the secret is to get one photo while onboard.
  4. If you do the bridge tour you can see they have a good view of all the balconies from the wings down each side of the ship. They even have binoculars if something catches their eye 😃 They may even send a naked naked naked call on the Internal PA
  5. If you use Facebook Messenger you can send them a private message through that. I have always found the respond reasonably quickly through that channel. What email address did you use to contact them? I have used cruiseadmin.au@rcclapac.com and reservations.au@rcclapac.com with some success. They normally take a few days to respond but maybe worth a try also.
  6. The statements also seem somewhat contradictory. 1) These may not be authentic videos and 2) The video angles are deceptive
  7. The following is an except from an article on the Fox News website. Michael Winkleman, an attorney for the Wiegands, has since called Royal Caribbean’s motion to dismiss “baseless.” “It is clear that Royal Caribbean’s tactic is to blame Chloe’s grandfather rather than to accept that Royal Caribbean did not implement industry standards for toddler safety aboard its ships which ultimately led to Chloe’s tragic death,” Winkleman said, in part, in a statement shared with Fox 43. Winkleman further claimed that Royal Caribbean was supplying “two deceptive views from its CCTV cameras.” On Friday, attorneys for the family filed two further motions: one to strike the video footage, claiming the "the authenticity of the videos" had not been established; and another asking the court to make Royal Caribbean "to produce all video footage from all of the cameras," of which Winkleman had said there were 13 in total. The video footage seems pretty conclusive in my eyes. Even allowing for camera angles the grandfather was a long way outside the window. He would have banged his head on the glass if the window was closed. The court would have received the videos directly from Royal Caribbean so I don't believe you can dispute their authenticity without implying some kind of conspiracy occurring in the background. I suppose if you can exclude all the evidence that proves something to be true then anything is possible.
  8. Sorry I forgot to mention that the ship needs to be switched over the new app before you can use the upload photo option. What ship are you sailing on?
  9. I have added a photo, both through the app and via a computer. if using a computer/iPad you will see the add photo option after the travel documents section. It is easy and only takes a few seconds. When you do it using the app it will activate the camera and put the online of a person to assist in getting the correct face size. I think as long as the photo is clear and you are not wearing a hat there is no issue. We have been doing this for a couple of years and have not had to have our photo retaken at the dock.
  10. The first time we sailed on Princess they upgraded us from a mini suite to a full suite so all cruise lines do it. As twangster said if they upgraded based on loyalty level it would be all the Pinnacles being upgraded so it is not something I worry to much about.

  12. Can you pre-purchase the Stay Awhile program on your cruise planner? On our Independence sailing it did not appear on the cruise planner but was available to purchase on the ship for selected European Sailings. From memory it allowed you to stay aboard and use the public areas until 3pm and if you purchased a drinks package you could also use it for non-alcoholic drinks through the day. It's annoying if they only offer on the ship as this means you cannot know for certain that is an option for you.
  13. No wonder “Doc” had so much free time on the Love Boat. Nobody could afford to see him 😁
  14. We did this on Independence in September. It was great fun! We booked it via the cruise planner 1 month before our sailing. It requires 12 people so is a great activity for family and friends. You don’t need to find 12 people though as you you be paired with other people who have booked for the same time. .
