I believe you might still be able on Cunard to hire crew to babysit in your cabin but then it has been a long time since I had the need.:eek::D

We have all seen how rumours and artist's rendering of spaces can change "in the flesh" but the new Seabourn ship seems to me to be heading squarely where all the ex: R-ships are. 600+ passengers in...

Lincslady, we agree with your critique of where meals are served. SeaDream has a lovely Dining Room that is very well laid out, near to the galley, etc. However, most meals are served topside. ...

I have to agree that St. Thomas hotels, even the "good" ones, are very inconsistent. None that we have had are truly good. If at all possible, we avoid STT as an embarkation/disembarkation port.
