I've cruised out of FLL more times than I can count and I've always used the local taxi company. When leaving the terminal, go to the taxi stand and request an accessible taxi to your hotel. When...

A note about keeping balcony doors open and sleeping on the balcony.

We were recently on a cruise where our neighbors kept their balcony door open. Not only did the temperature in our cabin ruse...

Honestly, it's not fair to compare Crystal to Celebrity. Celebrity is a mass market line while Crystal is luxury. You can't possibly compare a ship with under 1000 to a ship with 2900. You can't...

This is all due to lifeboat capacity. Your cabins are probably part of a lifeboat that's already at capacity, thus you cannot add any more persons. This is an issue with all cruise lines, not just...

MSC has programs for those under age 3, but you must remain with the child, and it's only for a couple of hours a day. A non trained child cannot go into any pool or hot tub----not even using swim...

Somethings not right here. I've been cruising as a disabled solo for 20 years and I've never, ever paid more for an accessible cabin---and I've been on more than 90 cruises. Are you sure you're...

We were on Celebrity Summit, a 7 day cruise, in June and there were more than 400 kids on board. People come from all over the US and Canada to cruise on Summit, not just NY and NJ families. And,...

It's always someone else's fault. Like the woman on another board who got angry at her TA for not informing her that she couldn't cruise if she was more than 24 weeks pregnant. The woman was 26...

PoppyandNana, after taking more than 90 cruises all over the world, the only time I have taken my passport off the ship is in Russia, where it's required. Many cruise lines take, and keep, your...

It's very important that his cruise documents, his airline tickets have the exact mane as it appears on which ever document he uses to prove his citizenship, be it a birth certificate or passport. ...

People bring bottled water on board using the technique you mentioned, but I've not heard of anyone bringing a case of soft drinks in cans on board and using a luggage tag. Those things can get...

I'm a full time scooter user and my cousin just returned from a river cruise on AMA Waterways on the Danube. She sent photos of all the port stops and from those I was able to ascertain that there's...

The numbers change on every cruise to accommodate changes in passengers and how they want to be seated. You might have a number of large families on a cruise, or you might have a few special partial...

If it's not going to have the original band members, it's just that, a tribute band. They may sound ok, but there's no way they will sound like the originals. We were on one of those Flower Power...

A lot depends on how many are booked into Select Dining. On many of our Celebrity cruises, they would not allow those in Traditional dining to move over to Select because they were so overbooked. ...

I've been on 92, on nearly every line out there, and some lines that no longer exist such as Home Lines, Premiere, Royal Viking and Sitmar. Oceania and Crystal have been the best and Costa and MSC...

Do you think the food on lines like Carnival is good? If so, you will be in food heaven on Oceania. Personally, I cruise only on the larger Oceania ships, Riviera and Marina, so there's more...

If you start or end your cruise in Vancouver, you'll need a passport. Some people don't realize that fact.

Just be careful and make sure that the ATM machine is safe and doesn't have an illegal reader. A friend of mine had his card scammed at an ATM in Barbados.
Are Solstice Alaska Cruises Sold Out?
Are most of Solstice Alaska cruises sold out? I was looking at the website and noticed that after the ship returns from a cruise on June 2, the next cruise is Sept 15. Where are all the cruises...

Every time we've cruised Equinox, which is approx 8 times, they only showed European Football in the Gastropub. If the games you want are on Sunday or Monday night, and carried by ESPN Deportes, you...

As long as the child is 12 months and older, not 11 months and a week or whatever, you should be fine. The reason why cruise lines have the age requirement is because there's no real medical care...

Nearly everyone plans a European cruise at least a year out, especially with a larger family. Not many ships easily accommodate a family of five, in one cabin, and those are booked very, very early....

I've cruised on both Serenity and Symphony using my Pride GoGo scooter and I've charged them in my accessible cabin. Never a problem. I think where the problem lies is in the fact that most...

When we were recently on board, I saw the sign that said it was open from 7am to 10 pm.
