Default Got our Cabin Assignment!

6 months from today we sail on the Galaxy. Booked an outside GTY. Got our assignment today.

We did not get the Royal Suite, Nor the Penthosue Suite, not even a veranda suite or balcony suite.

Is it time to sue?

Should I begin writing the President of Celebrity?

This just is not right! I am getting exactly what I paid for! I am disgusted with Celebrity. How dare they live up to the terms of the financial agreement we jointly made!!!

When you're born, you're wet, naked, screaming and confused - it only gets worse from there!

You have just experienced the lowest depths of human misery - getting what you paid for!

Sue them! Make sure you get enough for a 'round the world cruise!

Bon Voyage!

OMG - not Miami - way to dangerous with all those grannies excersising their right to bear (read bare and flabby) arms!!!!

I say we all sail across the Atlantic - take a run at Hadrian's wall and storm the keep - providing DavidB actually has a keep (what exactly is a keep anyway?)

Anxiety you say - that's ok - I have pills for that <VBG>

Hi Texasmunk,

Apparently, we will never know, since there are no longer posts explaining why something was something was deleted . I do think that DavidB edited his own posts, but I might be wrong .

Fern, my post was just a funny picture of a bagpipers with a couple of them exposing half a cheek because the wind had lifted their kilts.

I honestly have no idea why it was deleted. It did not cross any lines, was not vulgar or offensive, and certainly not rude.

I think maybe all references to the other poster were being deleted. You know, his name begins with D and is the same name as the biblical character "D.... and Goliath". Ummm, the guy that the HAL computer is talking to in the movie 2001, a space odyssey "Good morning. D....", "what are you doing.....D___"

So, in an effort to delete this "D___" from existence, my picture of the bagpipers and my allusion to D___was deleted as well. I think.

Banker - you sent it but it wouldn't open - you can imagine my disappointment - I was planning on having it enlarged for the wall tee-hee.

Could you have another go at it please - thanks

Hi banker,

I've seen the picture, too!

I think you're right about the posts. It seems that if your post is "connected" to one that's deemed "bad", your's will disappear, too!

Ah, well, the price of posting on the Gripes Board ,

I take that last comment as a personal slur on behalf of Scotsmen world wide

Might have been a cold day

lol David

David - "objection your honor, that was offensive to Scotsmen"

banker - "I didn't mean it that way, but it does qualify as a good quality "shot" so I move to enter the picture as evidence (exhibit A)"

judge - "The court will give banker some leeway to take shots at David. Objection overruled. We'll leave it on the record. But I warn you banker, your shots better be good"

banker - "they will be, and thank you, your honor"

Hey - Scotsmen even like their bread "short" - and they wear skirts in the winter - the offense rests!!!
