Slim,

The best you're gonna do is maybe a copy from a T/A from before. Little known fact, there is actually a small print shop onboard, and they do not begin to set the schedule until roughly a couple of weeks before a cruise, other than the usual regular schedule items, like dining times and things like that. The CD and all the relevant dept. heads will submit their items and the print shop will add the weather and port info, stuff like that, and print the Compass usually 1 - 2 days ahead of it's release to the passengers.

I know there was a web site that allowed people to upload daily cruise schedules from their past cruises from all the various ships and cruiselines for others to see, but I don't recall the site.

cruiseclues is that site

if by chance the CD, hotel director and run is the same, the compass should be pretty close. I've seen it often where if last years run was successful in terms of revenue and ratings, they'll just trot it out again.

Yeah, that is the site, thanks SZ.

You're exactly right on the CD. I did 2 cruises on the Vision OTS, one year apart, one to Mexico and one to Alaska, both cruises had the same CD. I pulled out the Compasses from both cruises and saw a lot of similarities that I didn't see in other Cruise Compasses from other ships. Like very similar pool deck games, the trivia games and days, and stuff like that.

Cruise clues had outdated info from like 2004 when I checked. I was looking for cocktail menu scans to get an idea of the drink prices. I was able to find a 2007 "signature cocktail menu" on webshots, nothing more up to date. I also posted a message on this site and I got like two replies that said don't worry about it, you're on vacation. the second said about the price of a local bar. No menu scans or specifics. January 2009 cruise compass available-web site is, http://cruise.bwatts.org/RCL011109/p...ss/compass.htm

Hi patsea,
Thanks for the link. I enjoyed looking through the dinning room menus. There is an N missing on the link button but I just punched it in by hand. Would you happen to have any cocktail menu scans? Thank You
