Kuki, I totally agree that having a television in your cabin is very import. Several years ago, while we were on a cruise to Alaska, I happened to catch the news on television and happened to hear, our former mayor, Meyera Oberndorf, talk about Hurricane Isabel, which happened to hit the Tidewater area of Virginia. I had no idea that there was a hurricane back home! One couple, who sat at our table, after hearing from us about the hurricane, said that we could stay at there home in Vancouver, B.C. as long as we needed to if we couldn't fly back home. Thank G-d, when we arrived back home, the power had been restored within an hour of our arrival, but I had to throw out all of the food in the refrigerator and freezer. This was just a small price to pay for our home which suffered no damage from the hurricane!
