Just finished "The Wright Brothers" by David McCullough. I recommend any of his books. Currently reading "Reagan-The Life", by H. W. Brands. A biography of Ronald Reagan.

I also suffer from thinning hair, but at age 74, if that's my biggest complaint, I can live with it.:D

Kids in Concierge Lounge or Diamond Club

We've seen very few children in either lounge lately. Don't really care if they're well behaved. What we do object to is kids just sitting and playing their video games while adults can't find a...

Exclamation Formal Nights on Cruise

If your husband has a dark suit, he will be fine. You see fewer and fewer men in a tux these days. I wear one, but that's my preference. If you cruise infrequently, don't bother to buy one, and...

Any idea how this affects bookings already on the books? We booked three cruises while on the Grandeur in January, and got $150 per cruise on two of them.

Red face Tipping in Specialty Restaurant

That's true, but I've never been sure who actually got the included gratuity. So, I always leave a $10 bill. If we're using the BOGO coupon (at Chops), that's two very nice meals for $40. Hard to get...
