first_imgShare This!Saving money on a Disney cruise is always a good thing, right? Did you know you can save money on a future Disney cruise by booking your next Disney cruise while onboard? Well, you can! All you have to do is go to Future Cruise Sales Desk onboard, or talk to the concierge team if you are sailing concierge, and either fill out a form to drop off, or sit down to talk and make plans with the cast member at the desk. The deposit amount will be charged to your method of payment on file for your cruise. Does that answer all of your questions? Of course not. So let’s try more information below.Update – Disney has recently changed their policy for onboard bookings.  The onboard credit is no longer included as a benefit for rebookings for anything besides concierge categories.  Disney Cruise Line Blog has the updated policy.1. What are the Benefits to Rebooking Onboard? – There are three benefits to booking onboard. First, when you rebook onboard, you will receive 10% off of the current cruise fare. You’ll still pay the regular taxes and port fees on top of that. Second, you will only have to put down a 10% deposit, instead of the normal 20%, on cruises of 7 nights or longer. Third, you will receive an onboard credit on that future cruise of either $100 on sailings of 6 nights or less, or $200 on sailings of 7 nights or longer. If you are booking a concierge stateroom, you will only get the third benefit, the onboard credit.2. If I Don’t Know What I Want to Book, Can I Rebook Onboard? – Absolutely! If you don’t have a date in mind, or if Disney hasn’t released your preferred sail date yet, you can book what’s called a Placeholder. A Placeholder is a flat $250 and basically reserves your discount. Once you decide what sail date you want to use it for, you’ll move the Placeholder to the correct date and pay the additional deposit, if any, that is due.3. Do the Rebooking Onboard Benefits Expire? – They do. You must use your onboard booking within two years. Your new sailing must begin within 24 months of the exact day it is booked. No exceptions. If you do not use it, 24 months after your Placeholder is booked, your $250 will automatically be refunded to the original form of payment. If you have a specific date booked and you change it to a date outside of that 24 month window, it will not automatically cancel, but you will not receive any of the benefits.4. What if I Change My Mind On Sail Dates or Even Sailing Again? – No harm no foul. You can move it as many times as you like, as long as you stick within that 24-month window. If you decide a cruise is not in your plans in the next two years after all, the onboard booking (with the exception of concierge) is fully refundable.5. Can I Combine with Other Discounts? – You cannot. If you book a military rate, Florida resident, or a IGT, OGT, or VGT rate, you cannot use an onboard booking for it. There’s no loss though! If you find a good discounted rate, you can cancel the onboard booking and move the money over, or save the onboard booking for another date.6. Do the Rebooking Onboard Benefits Work on All Itineraries? – They do not. There are some block-out dates where the 10% off and reduced deposit will not apply. You will still get the onboard credit and reduced deposit if applicable. Scott Sanders keeps a good list of which sailings are blocked out on his site. Rebooking onboard benefits also do not apply to two-night sailings.7. Can I Book for Friends? – Kind of! Each household sailing can book two staterooms on a future sailing. Not each adult, but each household, meaning Dad and Mom in the same room can still only book two staterooms. Both staterooms must be on the same sailing, but you can put anyone you like in the second stateroom. They do not have to be onboard at the time of booking. One name from the time of booking must always stay in each of the staterooms, so if you are a family of two adults, I’d recommend booking one adult in each stateroom. Then if your friends change their mind, you can take someone else! Once you are onboard you can move everyone to the stateroom that everyone will actually be sleeping in.8. Can I Still Use My Travel Agent With An Onboard Booking? – You can! If you are currently booked with a travel agent, you can request that the new booking remain with that travel agent. If you would like to change agents or didn’t use one the first time, you can transfer the onboard booking to a travel agent within 30 days of booking. Your travel agent will have a form for you to fill out. Disney is very, very strict on that 30 days, so don’t delay! FYI, when a guest rebooks onboard, Disney reduces the amount of commission that is paid to travel agencies who have reached a certain level of sales for Disney Cruise Line. You read that correctly, the agencies that sell the most cruises for Disney are the ones that are penalized when a guest rebooks onboard. Don’t even get me started… Why does this matter to you? If you use a travel agent who offers agency onboard credits, because of the reduced commission, they will usually reduce their onboard credit for onboard bookings. Also of note, if you want to book a concierge stateroom and are hoping to get an agency onboard credit, you may want to forgo the onboard booking. Often the extra agency onboard credit will make up for the loss of the onboard credit from Disney, the only benefit concierge gets when rebooking onboard.9. I Forgot to Rebook Onboard, Can I do it When I Get Home? – No, you can’t! Disney is also very strict about this benefit being an onboard-benefit only. I also recommend doing it early in the cruise as the rebooking desk gets very, very busy towards the end. (But remember, you can just grab one of the rebooking cards from the rebooking desk, fill it out, and then drop it in the box at the rebooking desk—no need to talk to anyone unless you want to!)10. If New Itineraries Come Out, Should I Wait and Rebook Onboard? – My answer is no to this one. When you know what you want, go ahead and book it. New itineraries in particular, can jump in price quickly. When you rebook onboard you are getting the 10% discount off the current fare. If the price has gone up more than 10% (plus the onboard credit), you have lost your savings. It’s also possible the category or stateroom you are interested in could be gone if you wait, costing you more in the long run if you have to book up a category. On the other hand, if you’ve booked already, and the price hasn’t gone up that amount, you can “reshop” (or rebook the exact same thing) onboard, and cancel the old booking when you get home. Disney or your travel agent will make sure the original deposit is credited towards the new cruise or refunded, and will even make sure you keep your original stateroom if you so desire.Do you have any other questions about an onboard booking?

first_img8 September 2011 The levels of “contact crime” in South Africa – crimes usually involving violence – decreased by 6.9% in 2010/11, Police Minister Nathi Mthethwa said on Thursday, while adding that the fight was far from over. Releasing the country’s annual crime statistics in Pretoria on Thursday, Mthethwa said there was a decline in all types of “contact crime”, including murder, rape, assault with intent to do serious bodily harm, common assault, aggravated robbery and common robbery. Murder was down by 6.5% and sexual offences by 3.1%. Assault with intent to do serious bodily harm dropped by 4.5%, while robbery with aggravating circumstances was down by 12%. However, Mthethwa said the stats were still worrying. “Contact crime is an area of crime which by its nature leads to serious feelings of fear and insecurity, because it is this form of crime [with] which violence is normally associated.”Drug-related crime on the increase Noting the 10.2% increase in drug-related crimes in 2010/11, Mthethwa said the police, instead of focusing on arresting people in possession of drugs, would be mounting operations aimed at the leaders of drug syndicates. He said they would also be working with the Departments of Education and Social Development in addressing the challenge of affected children. “We also acknowledge that dealing with drugs is a global challenge that needs to be coordinated with our international counterparts.”Drunken driving on the increase Mthethwa said it seemed people were not taking the “don’t drink and drive” motto seriously, as drunken driving cases were up by 3.5% in 2010/11, following the previous year’s 10.6% increase. “We all have a duty to ensure that our roads are safe, and those who break the law will be severely punished.” Although the stats showed a general decrease in all crimes, Mthethwa said this was just a motivating factor for the police, and that the fight was far from over. “Victory against crime is now an achievable goal. However, for as long as young children are still under bondage of crime and drugs, for as long as businesses are robbed, for as long as women are abused and raped, for as long as South Africans are mugged and hijacked – none of us must rest.” Source: BuaNewslast_img read more

first_imgWhen Microsoft’s new Internet Explorer replacement, officially dubbed Edge, arrives with Windows 10, it will offer users some new features, including the ability to annotate webpages and share notes. Baked-in annotation features could be one area that sets Edge apart, considering most Web browsers can’t handle them without third-party plug-ins or extensions. In fact, it’s somewhat unbelievable that this hasn’t become a standard feature in Web browsers yet. See also: Windows Wants Apps! Specifically, Android And iOS AppsFor anyone who conducts a lot of online research, for work or for fun, the ability to scribble all over webpages can be extremely handy. These days, that’s a lot of people—including me. I Annotate, Therefore I AmCurrently, people have a few primary options when they want to save information online: They can bookmark websites, save webpages for offline access, or download PDFs and other documents across an array of Web browsers. Some people even print things out on paper, and use pen and ink to take notes. With Edge (formerly known as “Project Spartan”), Windows 10 users can keep track of what is and isn’t useful within each webpage or document without extra steps. They can underline, place arrows and circle specific parts directly on webpages as they browse. See also: Now You Can Skype From Your BrowserSaving annotations either locally on your machine or to the cloud, Edge alerts you when you come to a webpage that you’ve previously marked up, and ask if you want to open the annotations. (Though, it’s not clear how long online annotations will remain saved.) You can also share the marks as images with other users. And since there’s no reliance on third-party plugins, there’s less fear that the feature will suddenly break whenever the browser gets updated.For me, as a writer, those benefits look extremely tempting. I do a lot of Web research, regardless of whether I’m writing about technology or long-dead gangsters. The first step usually involves a lot of online searching and making sense of the results, followed by a frenzy of bookmarking and downloading PDFs, before I can actually mark up the pages. See also: Microsoft May Launch A New Browser That Supports Extensions Like ChromeEdge promises to streamline all these tasks for me, as well as anyone else who has to parse a lot of information—including students, teachers, market researchers and other professionals. Go ahead, tell that online menu how you feel.Other ways I find online annotations handy: I cook a lot, and I have a bookmark folder for recipes. Easy annotations would let me record notes about alterations and substitutions on the fly. That would offer the same flexibility and versatility as old school recipe cards—only they’d be as accessible as the Web, where I could easily share them with friends (and wow them with my impressive cooking skills). I’d find that helpful for shopping too, jotting down notes and sharing impressions of products with loved ones. Reaching For The Edge Of GloryAdobe also offers annotation tools for PDFs, but launching Acrobat can feel cumbersome and interrupt your workflow. Adobe’s program and Web plugin look most suited for computers whose primary input devices are a mouse and keyboard, but less so for the sort of touch and gestures many Windows 10 devices will feature. The effort may be worthwhile when you need advanced tools, but not when you just want to underline something quickly, know that it’s saved, share it, or just move on. That’s where Edge looks like it’ll have, well, the edge.Microsoft also folded in a few other things to make Edge annotations more useful and appealing—including stylus support, to make scrawling with a “pen” easier. Adding the ability to draw on webpages on devices with touch-based input is a brilliant move on Microsoft’s part.Since Microsoft built the browser from the ground up, it also boasts Cortana integration, letting people highlight text on a page and get answers or related information from Microsoft’s digital personal assistant. A new Reading Mode feature will deliver a more magazine-like Web experience, which should work well with its reading list feature. Altogether, the features give users of all sorts of Windows 10 devices the ability to browse and take notes—from full PCs, to tablets and smartphones. Microsoft also tried to keep things simple for developers. Like Chrome and Firefox, Edge will (eventually) support extensions built using JavaScript and HTML. Microsoft’s Windows 10 boss Joe Belfiore told Build attendees that Chrome and Firefox extensions would “only require minimal coding to work in Edge.” Though extension support won’t be there on day one, it’s in the works. See also: Internet Explorer Struggles To Outrun Its Bad ReputationAll of those features could make Edge a serious contender in the competitive Web browser landscape—assuming, of course, Windows 10 gets the adoption Microsoft hopes for. The changes on the way look promising, but success is still not at all certain at this point. Windows users, skittish about glitchy or confusing updates, often stick with older software until new versions prove themselves. For instance, right now, more people still use older versions of Internet Explorer than the current one, according to NetMarketShare, with version 11 holding 24.22% of the desktop browser market, and versions 8, 9 and 10 collectively making up 30.88%. As for operating systems, version 7 may beat all other versions of Windows, at 58.07% of the desktop OS market, but more than 33% hang on to their older Windows. That’s a sizable chunk. Of course, Microsoft’s hopes to go beyond desktops to include mobile, where it’s still trying to catch up with iOS and Android. Windows 10 aims to bring it all under one roof, and Edge (and its annotations) might just be the cherry on top. Altogether, it makes for a pretty intriguing Windows 10 package. Edge’s annotations are great, but that fugly shoe should not inspire smiles.That doesn’t guarantee success, of course. Edge is Windows-only, and is likely to stay that way for a while to help drive users to Microsoft’s new operating system. It’s possible we’ll get Mac or Android versions sometime down the road. But despite Microsoft’s recent trend of cooperation, signified by releasing Office for iPad or teaming up with Cyanogen, I have my doubts that it wants to go the same route with Edge.However, as far as the new browser goes, I found that it taps into something fairly fundamental. Maybe it’s the fact that I miss taking notes in the margins of my books. Maybe it’s that my Surface Pro 3’s stylus feels underappreciated. Either way, when Microsoft’s new browser makes its way to my computer, I plan on taking a break from Chrome and taking a trip to the Edge.Screenshots courtesy of Microsoft Tags:#Edge#Internet#Microsoft#Project Spartan#stylus#touch#web#web browser#Windows#Windows 10 Related Posts Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai…center_img Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market brian p rubinlast_img read more
