Re: walkie-talkies. We use them house-to-house (our son lives next door) and they work fine. (Not cheapies -- I would say mid-grade Motorolas with a "6-mile range." That's a laugh, I expect.
Anyway, we wondered if they worked on the ship, with all that metal and such between you and your travel-mates. We thought it would be smart to have them, given that when you cruise with others, you seem to spend a lot of time trying to find them! Any experience with the w-t's would be welcomed!
Love the postings ... mostly very educational, and a lot of fun, too! (I don't mind the cranks ... they just spice up the mix!
