My DW has the same problem. On every cruise we've been on, if I don't step out of the elevator first, I can pretty much bet that she'll turn the wrong way. :D

We learned this trick from someone else about three cruises ago. On our first morning, we order room service (usually coffee and croissants), then keep the tray. We then take the tray with us to the...

Each time I make a payment, including the final payment, and anything we book, such as FTTF, or an excursion through Carnival, I always check in the "Manage My Cruise" section to make sure it went...

That's why I say PB M&M's and cruising are a perfect match. I'm addicted to both. :D

Usually, you'll find lower prices during "off-peak" periods. One off-peak period is the (approximately) three week period between the end of Spring Break and the beginning of the summer cruises,...

I can't imagine that someone takes every item suggested by other cruisers. However, it doesn't hurt to have a list of suggested items to work from when packing. I learned, several cruises ago, to...

There was a time (not so long ago) that men would take off their hats prior to sitting down for dinner, and if a man forgot, his wife/girlfriend (or mother) would remind him. Unfortunately, somewhere...

Battery chargers for the items that have rechargeable batteries (camera, wife's e-reader, iPods, etc.). Sure, you can buy a lot of things you forget, like toothpaste, aspirin, etc., but a lot of...

Your best bet would be to go and talk to the Maitre D soon after embarkation. Talking to him/her face to face will get you better results than trying to e-mail your request. Good luck.

We were just on the Breeze this past May, and it still looks pretty good to me. It's newer than the Magic, so it's had less wear and tear. I'm sure, at some point, like all cruise ships, it will have...

Nope. Never happened to me. And if it did, and somebody on the neighboring ship just happened to see me in my birthday suit, so what? If I'm in a silly mood, I might just do a little dance and give...

Maybe it depends on how far in advance the next cruise would be. If the next cruise you're booking is approximately 12 months away, then you should be able to get the cabin you want, and the prices...

On our last cruise, on the Breeze, it seemed like they were always running out of bananas. I don't know whether or not ships are able to re-stock their produce while in certain ports. It may depend...

We use poster putty, a.k.a. Fun Tack. It's easy to use, easy to remove, doesn't leave a residue, and won't harm painted surfaces. Never have to wonder or worry if the doors are metal or wood. ;)

It may be that not all embarkation ports are doing this yet. We sailed on the Breeze this past May out of Miami, and when we got our S&S cards, they were already punched.
