I've rarely used room service, so honestly, a charge isn't likely to impact me.

Between this, the bed bug letter, and the concierge being expected to solve a cruiser's problem unrelated to concierge duties, today has sure demonstrated way too many people have an inflated sense...

Just providing a differing opinion, another perspective, and a potential solution. That's the entire point of a discussion board. But you can do what you want.

Again, I get all that...and don't care. I witnessed similar angst when WDW first instituted dining plans, first with tip included, and a year or so later with imposed tipping. A whole bunch of...

Admittedly, I haven't read the thread all the way through, but left to my own devices I'd tip 20% in a bar or restaurant, because the math is easy to figure out. If a cruiseline is going to impose an...

It was several years ago for me, too, and I've not been back. I remember both the Dockyards and St. George as historical and lively, a winning combination. Lots of shops, restaurants and energy. In...

I went to Bermuda one of the last years that a mainstream cruise ship was able to dock at all three Bermuda ports (Dockyards, Front Street and St. George). I thought it was a lot of fun watching the...

I've always wanted to see the sail-in, with the Statue of Liberty all lit up in the dark, but can never wake up in time. Maybe someday. Maybe even on the Maasdam repo from Montreal to New York in...

Hot Diggity! A 7-day itinerary on a great ship from New York in mid-October when it isn't hot. How awesome!

What a nice thing to say, Sunshine. Thank you. Getting back to the topic, it also might be useful to see how many ships are scheduled to be in port with you that day. There are a bunch of websites...

Unless you have a clear preference for one line over another, I'd look at itineraries to see which line offers the port stops you like. For example, some of the Gem itineraries go to Newport and Bar...

I agree with this. There's a lot to like about the one-way trips, but inconvenient and expensive is putting it mildly. And two weeks for a round trip is about 3 days too long.

If you need to double check the list in the other thread, the types of senior staff you're asking about are usually posted on a board somewhere near the theatre entrance, with their photographs.

The best possible answer would be a Canada/NE 8 or 9 day cruise from Baltimore. Too bad it'd have to be on a Spirit-class ship; not enough interesting 1a cabins to suit me. Although a 5-day Canada/NE...

It isn't likely to be bumpy in early summer, but you're very likely to run into fog. The fog horn is...startling...until you get yourself prepared to hear it.

Certainly I don't mind meeting the cabin steward, but I also don't mind if s/he has better things to do than make a point of coming to see me in my cabin. Chances are good they know who I am, anyway.
