I've been to Tulum twice, once from Cancun, once (long ago) from a cruise ship. It's a beautiful site but for most 6 year olds probably not worth all the traveling.

You can no longer climb on the...

We have done this zipline--it was by far the most amazing of the three ziplines we have done. We were mid to late sixties at the time; I'm 71 and would do it again.

The first zip or two can be...

We fast-forwarded through most of the show, so no idea on the fashions. The right person went home though, based on dance skills or lack of.

I hate this two hour results format. I realize why...

I voted no because we dress basically the same for the 5 lines we have been on. We used to dress more formally (tux and long formal) than we do now, but we still dress 'up' for formal nights--just...

The two hour format was ridiculous. Thank goodness for DVR. None of the dresses really registered with me, probably because I was doing my coloring book during the show and we skipped through most...

I use a silk jewelry holder that rolls up and ties. It has one large compartment and lots of small ones. I bought it a garage sale for 25 cents!

For necklaces that tangle with thin chains...

I enjoyed the show and dresses. There are quite a few people I've never heard of, but that's par for the course. Only one dancer was really bad, sorry Rick Perry!

Although what Ryan Lochte did...

We try to bring the minimum amount of 'stuff', as it's easier than carrying around multiple bags, but of course it depends on what you are doing and what is included.

For water excursions I...

CC cabins on S ships just aren't worth much, if anything, extra to us. The last one we had was only $50pp more and had more on board credit than the regular balcony so it was an easy decision.

I've noticed this trend too. I don't mind fake lashes that at least look somewhat natural, but the huge obviously fake ones are too much for me.

In fact, I don't like the whole make-up trend that...

I bring my own mask and snorkel; it's a fit issue. Most masks on tours just don't fit me right. I don't bring flippers and usually don't use the ones available unless I know we are going to be...

Besides looking mainly at itinerary and price, we really like trying new lines; the same old same old gets, well, old. Never had a bad cruise yet!

Of course it's to make the price more appealing. (And some other reasons already mentioned.) Most of us are pulled in by a low initial price. But unless you've never cruised before, you just add...

The brand of ship is not very important to us. Yes, we like some lines better than others, but not enough that it would influence us on a cruise choice.

It's pretty much a toss-up between...

We try to bring the minimum, but use a beach bag (often the one some ships give you) if we need to bring towels and other bulky stuff. Our snorkel equipment fits in a small bag so we bring that too...

I liked the color of Erin's dress but not the style. I agree that her hair was very unflattering. I did like Carrie Ann's dress even though the neckline was a little too plunging for me.

I didn't like Erin's dress this week much either. Too pale and I thought it looked too old for her. I do like that she is trying dressier and more feminine styles.

I liked Erin's more feminine look last night. Agree that Doug should have gone home, although he has improved. I was surprised at who did go home.
