All of the above having been said, you can order an appetizer for dessert, if you like (for example, one of the cold fruit soups). Also, you can order more of something, if you find it particularly...

Regarding going to Atlantis, there's a water taxi (plus a little bit of a walk) that's infinitely cheaper than the ship excursion. There are also taxis and public transportation, so getting stuck...

So, essentially, food stations, which is what it seems most have now, anyway, to one degree or another.
The only thing about the description that annoys me is the "high tables". I am SO over them!...

We don't use locks, either. If I think of it, I might use twist ties to make sure the main compartment stays closed, but that's it. I don't put anything of value in checked luggage. Please, steal my...

Mostly we eat dinner in the MDR, can't say "never" in the buffet. But, we only hit the buffet for dinner if one or the other of us has extenuating circumstances - not feeling well, really exhausted,...

While there are differences in decor between lines and ships, I don't understand why some people seem SO offended by so-called "Vegas" decor (or, for that matter, bland/dull decor). I mean, sure, I...

Glad to hear you liked it. We have a reservation ($130 + taxes) there, but it's Oct. 31, not March. The price was right and looks like the type of place we want (unique, boutique vs. chain), and...

First and foremost, we try to hit places/ports we haven't been, so very few repeats in our history. Once we complete our partial transit canal cruise Nov. 2015, that'll pretty much be it for the...

If you're in Albany, Bradley airport (Hartford) might not be too far for you to drive. Mass Pike to I91 is probably easier than any of the NYC airports. American flies from there.

I would contemplate it for a cruise with more sea days. Port-intensive cruises, which we aim for, make it not such a good deal. We bring the allowed wine on board, which covers us for wine with...

Sometimes you just have to get defensive, even if you're not a loyalist!

Avon has a sunscreen in a 3 oz. size container (says for face, but works for body as well, obvs.) Not terribly expensive, either. The hubs has little to nothing in his quart baggie, and we could fit...

After nearly 20 cruises, on several lines, over quite a few years, I can't say I've had anything that was inedible in a MDR. Occasionally not quite what I expected, and sometimes not to my taste, but...

For us it can vary depending on the itinerary. Obviously, for a cruise in the Mediterranean, the airfare can easily be at least as much as the cruise itself. Excursions are also more expensive (but...

I have to wonder just what they thought the point of doing that was?
