70K 2018 Forum Users' Meet'n'Greet Onbroad

by Pellaz » Mon Nov 27, 2017 8:07 pm

Okay, by, uh, popular demand we'll do this again in 2018. And maybe this time I'll walk around the corner by the basketball court and find the main mass of people sooner. :lol:

Who: anyone from the Forum -- old hands, newbies, all are welcome -- and anyone from the 70K groups over on Facebook.

What: the completely unofficial 70K Forum and 70K Facebook Groups' Meet'n'greet. A chance to put names to faces and see old cruise compadres again. It'll be time to celebrate: we're on the damned boat, we didn't miss it, and we have now become part of the best metal cruise in the world! :headbanger:

Where: Sports Deck near the basketball court (Deck 13 aft), same as last year for those who were there. Yes, it's on Deck 13. You get there by using the aft elevators; if your elevator doesn't go all the way to 13, get off at Deck 12 and find a lift with an "up" button. :lol:
If the weather is really rainy or stormy -- not likely, but it is possible -- we can move to an indoor bar, maybe the Schooner Bar, On-Air Club by Studio B or Boleros.

Why: because we can, damnit!

How: by stairs, or elevator, or TARDIS. You'll have to get permission to arrive by helicopter. :lol:

When: starting at 3:30 pm after embarkation (Feb. 1st) and lasting up to Muster Drill*, then maybe afterward for those who don't have to rush off to see any must-watch bands playing during the first time-slot.
Why 3:30 on embark day? Because this is the only real chance we have to gather. Once the bands start playing, right after Muster Drill, things get too crazy. This also allows time before 3:30 to start drinking, get settled, explore the ship, start drinking, etc.

I can't re-link our badge/sticker artwork because I'm posting this from work, but it's in last year's meet'n'greet thread. It's pretty awesome. :twisted:

---------------
* What's a Muster Drill? Ahh, you must be new to these parts. It's your chance to meet everyone within your muster station on the ship, maybe hear the safety briefing and take a gander at your lifeboat. It's a Royal pain, but it's required by international law and alas, you can't skip it.

We need those stickers back, and to wear them at the drill as a badge of honor!
But shit, the sun in my face at this year's drill, I melted like the wicked witch.
Any trick to bypass the drill? Diaherra?

Bodomdragon and cowboy71...NOW it's a party. :lol:

Hell, I did last year. Safety pins were awesome because we could wear them more than once.

"Uhh, well, ummm...." :bmhorns:

But shit, the sun in my face at this year's drill, I melted like the wicked witch.

Technically, no, although medical exceptions can be made for people who can't stand*, etc. In those cases their muster drill is handled inside.
On my "cheap regular" cruise last October (on Carnival Vista) the muster drill was actually held inside...for us, it was in the main theater.
Actual seats.
No sun.
I thought I'd died and gone to heaven; it was the first time I'd had an "inside" muster drill since cruise #2 back in 2011.

Seriously, bring a hat or a cap to block the sun...and hope that your side of the ship is in shade during muster. Last year on 70K we lucked out. The year before it was torture.

The Wipeout Bar is supposed to be open and it's right around the corner from the meetpoint. Royal must not think we're an athletic crowd. :lol:

We can get the stickers again. Steph should still have the file in her email from last year. It makes the guy that prints them laugh so it's worth it :P

I'll be there! Those stickers were great. Last cruise was the first time my muster drill station wasn't staring directly into the sun. Only took 8 cruises. We got to sit in the air conditioned main dining room. It was glorious. I felt a little bad for our muster drill station guy. He was really laying it on with the cruise humor but his jokes were meant for a normal cruise crowd.

Beer is a sport. Those buckets are heavy... for about 10 minutes. But yes, load up on beer before you get there.

My muster station was in the Pyramid Lounge last (er... this) year. Not in the sun, but super crowded. I was in one of the front-facing family ocean view cabins on 9.

I definitely showed up with a beer, and they didn't say anything.

Did they take roll at the muster drill station we are assigned to go to, like scan our badge or something? I can't remember, just curious, hehe! ;)

I recall one year where there was a huge line so I just walked past the check in point and lined up without giving my name. Never heard anything from it later on.

Yep, part of the crew is assigned to go room-to-room, and once a room is cleared, they mark it.

I don't remember a "serious" attempt at taking roll last February, like scanning badges, but I remember seeing them try to count bodies. They DID scan badges on my "regular, cheap cruise" in October, and called out the miscreants who got there late. :lol:

The inside muster station is actually worse...it was shoulder to shoulder with no ventilation, I'd take outside any day.

Wasn't like that in the dining room. At least on our side. Got to sit at the tables.
