If there is VISIBLE dirt, I will call to have it cleaned. But, worrying about others not being as "fastidious" as you is just silly. We are all humans...and carry pretty much the same germs around...

Allow yourself at least an hour to get back from 7-Mile beach, if you go there. As stated, there is one small road, and it can be "bumper to bumper"...but you can easily see the traffic from the...

Depends what the excursion entails....if it's simply transportation, then we got what we paid for...we don't tip for just that. If there is a guide and he/she is entertaining, then we do tip...we...

Only time I get "logged out" is when my computer does an "update" that requires a restart.

NO balcony is completely private....anyone next to you can (and probably will) peek around the divider at some point. It is "private" in the sense that you aren't sharing with others.

Yes..they have other juices at breakfast....not sure about Cranberry, but tomato, for sure, and probably pineapple or grapefruit....Whatever juices they have are included at breakfast. "Fresh...

A guidebook will be very helpful in deciding WHAT you want to do....and you may find you don't need to spend money on an excursion as the Caribbean is pretty easy to DIY....depending on what you...

If you have reservations for MTD, you shouldn't have to wait more than a couple minutes....It's really like any land-restaurant..if those at your table prior to you are taking their time, it can mess...

The phone center people are reading off scripts...they don't know anything that isn't written down....and you know how 'up to date" RCI keeps their info....

As far as the lobster, the "whole"...

The cabana is more "substantial" than the bungalow....but both offer shelter from the sun. I know the cabanas get a bit more choice of items on the lunch menu than everyone else...don't know if...

Ashland is right...those things are on the OTHER side of a wall....you will turn left as you leave your cabin, and have to walk to the FOYER ENTRANCE to access those areas.

Prepay or not...it costs the same either way. The folks who serve you don't receive the tips until the cruise is over, as is customary on cruises.
You can be assured that those who are supposed...

Do NOT "talk up" cruising to a 1st timer...it takes the fun out of the discovery!

No worries...many lines are going to this...don't know why...but it's all fine.

I think cruising in each "region" has a different "feel". If you are from the USA, the Caribbean is a relaxation type of vacation...each island is more similar than different, IMO...and much less...

I've never been to a Japanese Steakhouse where they SING (unless it's someone's birthday!)...during food prep! They will "entertain"...make onion volcanoes, etc...and lots of funny chatter and...

If you have a long name, they can only fit so many letters. I'm sure it's fine.

Just drink the ice water...it's fine and it's the same stuff that's in bottles! No plastic waste, either! It's all H2O...water...basic water!

The reason they make you have an actual BERTH for each person (whether they use it or not) is because of the lifeboat capacities. You can have a full passenger load, but still have vacant cabins,...

I've never seen anyone on any cruise "sloppy, falling down, drunk". If you appear to be too inebriated, they will NOT serve you, whether you have a "package" or not.

Anyone bent on being totally...

The "new" cabins probably do have balcony dividers that open, since they aren't "built into the ship", like some of the older cabins. It may be up to the captain, and ocean conditions. Simply ask...

The "cluelessness" of fellow passengers is a real thing. Once the cruise lines started to make cruising a "mainstream" vacation, all decorum went out the window. No one nowadays does any research...

ON "Dress up or not" nights, you will NOT be "out of place" if you dress up...the others will be "underdressed"!

Our 1st cruise was rainy (and rough) EVERY day, except our day in KW...it was sunny and gorgeous...and I couldn't wait to get back to the ship to lie by the pool....I mean, if you come home from a...
