Kevin, those were some great tips. Regarding the VCR in the room, do you know: Is this only if you're not feeling well? Was there a charge? My husband is TV addicted. Must have one running all the time. After hours upon hours of the same shopping advice and sports center program he was ready to blow a gasket. It was so hostile, I went to Customer Service and asked why we can't get a "real" station? They just shrugged their shoulders. The next cruise he lugged a protable dvd player and movies on with him. I'd like to get the VCR setup if it's available.
