I have never seen people crying while paying their bill, but then we never have much extra to pay; sometimes we even get money back if we have quite a bit of OBC, so I'm typically not at the Purser's...

I definitely agree with this; bring 1/3 to 1/2 more than you think you'll need in cash; just don't carry it all around with you on shore, though, just what you think you'll need for the day.

You...

You really don't have to spend much, or anything on the ship unless you want to. You've got most of the extra expenses covered already.

Depending on what you like or want, extras could include...

We usually do a cruise at that time, and often book about two months out. We've gotten some killer deals and some good deals.

We don't only book with RCI, we go with a price, itinerary, etc. that...

We greatly enjoyed our trip to Xacaret on a land vacation, but probably wouldn't do it on a cruise because of the ferry ride (only time I've been seasick, except once on a very old cruise ship) and...

I guess for us it would have to be itinerary, followed by the ship. We've sailed on quite a few different lines and ships and aren't too particular about that.

As to itinerary, it depends. For...

We've done the opposite, Citivecchia to Rome on the train. We had 24" suitcases and a small tote each, walked from the port to the station and then from Termini to our B&B. We were 65 and had no...

We've used Super Shuttle several times, both from the airport to our hotel (flew in the day before) and from the ship to LAX. Cost is about $17pp, but we can usually find a discount code of $2-3 pp....

We have had to cancel two major trips; one a tour and river cruise in China, the other a river cruise+ land tour in Europe because of health crisis of our elderly parents.

In both cases, after...

I agree that to see Hawaii a land tour is best. Since we'd already done that 3 times, we enjoyed our Princess cruise to Hawaii from LA, but probably won't do the roundtrip cruise again.

I think I *might* have a half slip or two tucked away somewhere but it has probably been decades since I've worn one. I generally try not to buy clothing that is see-through, although it's easy to...

We've stayed at the Crowne Plaza twice; got a great rate both times on Hotwire (under $70 once, under $90 the other). It's very convenient to the port, has restaurants nearby and free transfers to...

I've been to quite a few Zumba classes on Princess. They are free and I love it. The only problem is that sometimes it gets too crowded.

If I could find one that fits right, looks good and is age appropriate (I'm 69) I'd definitely wear a ball gown. I wore a 'kind of' ball gown a few years ago that I really liked--it's a little too...

That would discourage me too! We've only been given a pager once, and it went off just as we sat down in a nearby lounge. I think 7 PM may be a very popular time, and, as others have said, some...

As soon as possible--if we're in the room when the luggage arrives, we'll do it then. Otherwise, the next time we are in the room. It doesn't take long and I just want things put away.

We've been to all of those islands, except St. Croix, and it's a tough choice. I think either itinerary is great, with an edge to B because of Dominica and Grenada, two of our favorite islands.
