Remove all those formal clothes & shoes (no longer a requirement) & half of the casual clothing.
Do a load of laundry or send it it and it'll leave plenty of room in your suitcase.

It's gotten bad with the add on's. After our next cruise in Dec, we'll be returning to the old way of sailing, paying our gratuities out of pocket, trading in our setup for coffee, no internet & RumRunners.  ;D

I've given up on their stock price. IF it wasn't for the OBC factor, I'd have sold it for a loss a long time ago.

If they would only pay them a decent wage..... instead of upping the gratuities.
That's going to a tough case to prove.
What I can't understand is why they can't use their location feature to locate people who refuse to check in on time at the designated muster station. They've made it so easy lately and still people lag behind the process.
They should make all the offenders sit thought the old video for 20 minutes & only then allow them back into circulation.
So they're taking space away from me to sell to their premium customers.  >:(
I'm waiting for tier levels for the internet.  :-\
I'm waiting patiently for the Princess ships. It might then be worth it for unlimited internet service with the Plus package. As it stands now, with the crowded ships, it's practically worthless.

It's a great deal until you factor in the air fare from Florida.  :(

"From 14-hour shifts to meager pay, working conditions on cruise ships are tough. No wonder it's becoming increasingly difficult to find staff."
