How was internet service on board? Wifi from the staterooms while in port? Hope it was better than our med in '07.

Can anyone post navigators when you return.

We're on the July 13 with Greece so we'd appreciate any tips you can give us.

Thanks so much. Hope you had a great cruise!

We sailed Med 07 too and we are also on the 7/13!!

The Internet will never be any good on the ship, but we can always hope!

Internet connection is slow.

Please remember it is a satellite connection.

Also, have guest services help you with printing your boarding paseses for your return flight.

One couple spent their 250mins. Trying to print their printouts.

I called guest services after 5 mins. Of having an issue.

The best time to use the ship wifi is when everybody is off the ship. LOL. Or the odd hours of the morning.

Well we got back yesterday. It was a great trip! I saw many of the fellow DISers on board. I was in the cabin next to a couple. I was in 7562. Hope everyone made it home safely.

Regarding WIFI as usual it was slow but it was not as slow as our last time on the Magic in Sept out of NYC. The other thing that changed for me was that you first log on and then go to another screen that asks if you want to "connect" or add additional time. You are not considered logged on until you click connect unlike before which was once your password was accepted you were connected. Also you can log out by just typing logout.com which is also faster than the instructions on the sheet. Have a great trip!

Thanks!

Thanks to everyone for all the wonderful FE gifts! I hope everyone received one from us. There were some rooms that didn't appear to be occupied and there was no FE so I didn't leave the gift at those rooms. Hopefully I caught them on the other decks but if not, let me know via PM and I'll be happy to send one out to you.

Arrived home on Friday...re-entry is never fun...

Has anybody looked at their Shutters DVD yet? I just "unlocked" the photos and all the borders are there...but there doesn't seem to be a way to use the photos WITHOUT borders. I'd like to be able to do both since some of the borders crop funny....

Am I missing something?

Just got home yesterday!

Great to meet all of you and sorry if I didn't recognize/greet you during the cruise - I'm really bad with names/faces! I wasn't snubbing you!

Thanks to all for the FE gifts! They are so clever and are a great reminder of a wonderful trip!

Everything fell apart as soon as we touched US soil.

Our flight from Newark to Des Moines was cancelled Friday night.
We couldn't get a flight back home for 2 days - and ended up spending an additional $700 for 2 nights at the Hilton Penn Station in Newark and meals.

My suitcase was lost in Newark after we cleared customs and still missing.

We were routed through O'Hare yesterday, where our son's bag was left.

So when we finally got home yesterday afternoon, we only had 2 of the 4 bags we checked. And I'm still calling United to try to locate them!

Sadly, I packed all the FE gifts in my suitcase. I am really hoping we get our bag back, because I hate to lose them. And I am so mad at United right now- I will NEVER fly with them again!!
