Default Urgent Notice Regarding Infinity

I am crusing on the Infinity August 29th and I just had a few questions. Will my cabin window be dirty? What color is the carpet in the room? If there are threads hanging off the bed Spread can I request a new one? What size are the water glasses in the cabin? If the condensation from the water pictcher drips off and lands on my passport do I have any type of recourse against the cruise line? Are the hinges on the cabin door brass or some type of cheap metal? Do the buttons on the elevator light up when you push them or are they just the cheap kind with no lights? When i board the ship and they take my picture for security can I get copies of the picture? Is the toilet paper in the cabin bathroom soft or shall I bring my own? What brand of Qtips do they put in those glass jars in the bathroom? Last cruise on the Mercury I stuck one in my ear and I found it to be very uncomfortable! What about the cottonballs? Those seemed to be very cheap and kind of like rubbing little sea urchins on my face. If I request rose petal to be thrown at my feet as I walk around the ship can I choose the color petals I want? Well I guess thats all the questions I have. I realize there are so many more important questions on this board so if you cant get around to answering mine I will understand.

Best Regards,

T.J.

Yes,earth tones,yes,drink size,no-move the pass port,light up,no,bring your own,no q-tips or cotton balls,the color will depend on what's in season (don't forget to push the vaccum cleaner in a forward motion and to empy the bag often).

You got me on the first question, Total, then the second I was wondering... but by the third I was giggling.

Thanks for the good laugh!

Hilarious! However, I did learn some good info for our last
cruise and I've been on 14 of them...so keep those answers
coming! Sometimes having the answers to specific questions,
just makes packing, etc. much easier. Now your questions...
good luck on your next cruise!

You had me laughing so hard I was almost crying! I tried to read it aloud to someone else and couldn't stop laughing! That message summed up all the just plain stupid questions and complaints that some people bring to this forum. Thanks for the comic relief.....

Not to take this seriously or sound thin skinned or without humour (yes you made me laugh) but just out of curiousity which type of questions are acceptable to you?

I have no issue with people asking questions but it seems like the same mundane questions are asked over and over and over again in here. If people would just search through the posts im sure they will find multiple questions and answers regarding the sneaking alcohol on board Celebrity ships. Somehow the question continues to pop up about 2 - 3 times a week. This is just one example.

Why are you torturing yourself by hanging around this website? Wouldn't you be happier starting your own -- maybe even a newsgroup for the enlightened? I did a whois search for totaljackassthinkshesagod.com and it is available! Go for dude!

I think sneaking alcohol on board ship is rather tacky if you get caught. If you get away with it its pure genious. I have found out that those security people can be bought off. I was on Voyager of the Seas 2 years ago and for 30.00 my cabin steward arranged it so that I could get through at the ports with no problem. Worked like a charm. The staff on some of those cruise ships have kind of a mafia thing going on.

I figured since you asked - I should answer. When I first read your post I thought "What an idiot" then I thought "I get his point".

On a serious note - Just remember one thing: For someone who has never cruised and don't know anyone who has (Like my first cruise) these questions are very important to them. They are not only excited, they might be a little apprehensive and want to make themselves feel secure in their choice to go on a cruise. Also they don't want any surprises and don't want to "look" as if they have no clue!

I have no doubt that you're right. Many people are apprehensive.

But Total Jackass really does have a good point, as you acknowledge and as I have mentioned here before.

Some of the questions people post are just great. But I also feel. . .

1. That people should check the last couple months worth of posts, where the answers to most questions can easily be found.

2. That people should ask themselves whether a BB is the best place to get their particular question answered (or would, for example, the State Department or the cruise line itself be the most authoritative source?).

3. . . .and this is purely a personal perspective. . . That more people should allow for a few more unkowns in their travel worlds. Yes, you should plan for the basics, but you should also leave room for targets of opportunity, variations from the plan, a bit of spontenaity. If every "i" is dotted and "t" is crossed beforehand, the trip becomes a simple matter of playing the music as written, rather than allowing for some improvisation here and there. I know that one of the attractions of cruising is that most everything is taken care of, but leave a little room for surprises! Most of them are pleasant. Some of the "'nth degree" questions are symptomatic of people who don't want any surprises, and I think that's too bad.

Knowing which night will feature roast beef at dinner, and questions like it are, as the Jackass says, just a little on the anal side.

You are right that every detail should not and can not be accounted for. Some folks go a little over board (no punn intended).
But what is important to one person is silly to another.
