I liked Erin's dress the best, liked JA's except the top looked like it was riding way too low. Didn't see enough of CA's, but the fit did look strange.

We fast forwarded through most of the show...

We don't drink but I really haven't seen any really drunk people on board. I have seen a few who have had a few too many on the dock after a day onshore.

Although the drink package isn't...

The prices on the cruise we booked were exactly the same as they have been for several weeks. We may move it to a TA for some extra perks, though.

Now that I can see the dresses, I like CA's but gosh, what a mess JA's is.

We took advantage too. I imagine a lot of these cruises will be cancelled before final payment, including ours if we can't get decent air. I suppose the $2 per double cabin will add up for...

I liked the dresses too--especially Erin's, which is the only one I could see well. I agree that it should be Normani, Rashaad, David, but who knows. Come on, 10's for David's free style? Yes, it...

For any cruise over a week I generally do some washing--in my room or in a laundry room, if the ship has self-service laundry. Once in a while we will do the bag of laundry for $?. But lately that...

We have only done one ship excursion in Europe and that was basically just transportation that was a good deal. You can do all of this on your own, just be careful to allow plenty of time to get...

The Freedom would be a great choice for kids; I also think the Getaway would be as well.

It sounds like you are planning on spending some days on board and not going into ports? Otherwise there...

I liked Erin's dress except for the fit at the waist, and her hair was pretty too. Ca's and J's dresses were okay; too much stuff around Julie's shoulders though.

The voting is getting...

Oops--misread the post, thought it was $40 more. The location would not be an issue for me, so then I would probably do it.

Concierge cabins are worth very little extra to me--certainly not that much. We paid $50pp extra but got more OBC the last time. The perks really aren't all that great; most of them we didn't even...

For a small amount like this I'd take it, but not for much more. The only thing we really appreciate with Concierge. cabins are the footstools on the balcony and the extra points. None of the rest...

On a Windjammer cruise (obviously years ago) an eighty+ old guy, very skinny, who wore very huge and stretched out speedos--well, you can imagine, but it's better if you don't. Everything was on...

In the photo above I like CA's dress except for the print. JA looked very nice; I liked Erin's dress except for the low sleeves; looks so confining.

Okay with who went home; still not the worst...

We do both as well as no tour--do things on our own--on occasion. I research the port thoroughly and use the port of call boards and Trip Advisor for tour ideas. Some tours need to be booked ahead,...

I've given up on the more expensive curlers and gone back to the old metal style ones. The others just don't curl my lashes; must be how my eyes are set in my head.

The tour we took a few years ago in St. Lucia had an option to go to the mud baths; a couple of people did while the rest of us went to the 'volcano'. Price was much less than $500--more like $50 pp...

Not particularly loyal; we choose cruises mainly by itinerary and price. We do tend to cruise with Princess the most, next Celebrity. But we have cruised on 8 different lines, that I can remember,...

We (now) always buy insurance, and we have had to use it three times, twice for health crisis with parents, once during the SARS epidemic. I admit that when we were very young we didn't.

I'm with Hank. If at all possible we try to be among the last off the ship. In the rare instance where we have to get off as soon as possible, we have done self-assist. Otherwise we put the bags...

I have noticed no change at all. We like the convenience of the pre-paid tips and usually tip some extra to our cabin steward unless they are really sub-par; which has never happened.

It is my...

We had that too, about the same time period. The old wooden phone on the wall. Our ring was something like short,short, long. I think you turned the handle to call someone else on your line with...

I really like CA's now that I can see it all--thanks for posting that. I know I could look it up myself, but......

I like Erin's less in that photo--really a harsh look.

Erin's dress was fine, liked Nancy's red dress also. both too are too low in the neck for me, but otherwise pretty. I never see enough of Carrie Ann's to judge. Once again the wrong people went...
