Normally I have some cruise related photo to feature for the recap of the week that has sailed by but for the past 24 hours or so I have been getting the above strange error when logging in to FrequentFloaters.com! In fact the only way I can post is by using my VPN. I hope to get it sorted in the coming week. But speaking of last week…

If you did not see the absolutely insane videos of the sudden thunderstorm that struck the Royal Caribbean ship you need to look at this post. In one of them a chair just misses a baby and crushes a stroller into nothing!

When I go on a cruise ship I am not in the mood to dress up. While a huge fan of the British show Downton Abbey the idea of “dressing for dinner” in my finest is not for me. But just what are the rules onboard? Take a look.

Our man onboard, ThatGuy has a great insiders look at how long contracts last for the fine crew taking care of you on your ship. They can range from short to long and he covers them all.

One would think every city would love thousands of tourists pulling up to their city eager to spend cash and boost the local economy but that is not always the case. See why that is.

Lastly this week we all need, or should that is, try to reduce the cost impact of cruising by staying for as close to free at hotels the night or nights before our cruise. Chris has a sweet offer that is almost gone.

I spent my day yesterday, since I could not blog, redeeming my Delta Platinum Medallion Choice Benefits for what are called Regional Upgrade Certificates to move to first class from coach on a trip down to Florida for a cruise this winter (one of the free-ish ones I have booked). More on that later on but for now enjoy the rest of your weekend. – René
