It's hard to be specific without knowing the ports. Visit the Ports of Call boards here for each island for suggestions. On most islands, it's easy to find a taxi that will take you to a beach;...

Yes, visit the ports of call and your roll call for help on tours.

We have done some of those ports. We almost always do private tours, or go on our own.

Here's what we did. Barcelona, on...

You are probably right--I think our 'guide' at the falls was about $5 each, but well worth it. i think it would have been tough on our own. I am pretty sure you can climb on your own, though it's...

My husband and I climbed the falls at around 60. It was fun, but definitely slippery and somewhat dangerous. We hired one of the guys that stand around at the bottom and offer to 'help' you. He...

I agree that a lot of the seating in the "S" class ships is uncomfortable, but I'm assuming they were bought because they look as stated above--you know, stylish and cool. Sometimes I wonder if...

For kids that age, I'd pick the Freedom too; however, they will enjoy either cruise. I don't think the ports are different enough to matter except that you do get one more port with Carnival, if...

We haven't booked a ship excursion in years, and won't unless nothing else works; reason is cost and quality of the tours.

With Captain Bob, I think there were two snorkel stops, a beach stop and lunch (in a beach restaurant). Not everyone snorkeled; on one of the stops you could have just swam to the beach, the other...

They quit making my favorite Merrel sandals too! I've bought a couple of different styles, but they are not as good.

The flow rider, rock wall, golf and ice skating do not involve extra fees. You can pay extra for lessons on the flow rider, or, I think, private or semi-private time on it.

Most extra fee things...

Don't knock out Princess altogether--there are some great deals out there.

But, an 18 year old might like Carnival, RCI or NCL better.

Personally, I don't think there will be any major...

We've done three spring TA's (all in April) and love them. The first time we wondered a little if so many sea days would be boring, and also about weather and sea conditions.

Yep, see your doctor.

When I have a dry cough, it's usually due to allergies, but that's me.

That's what we did in December. There were a lot of ships in port--at least five, but by doing Capt. Bob we missed almost all the congestion. They are very fast and thrilling speed boat rides,...

To us, it's only worth it if the price difference is small. We paid $50 pp more for our recent 14 day cruise, after factoring in the extra OBC we got. It was worth it at that price point because of...

Unfortunately the newer Celebrity ships don't have a clothesline--strange, since otherwise the bathrooms are very well organized, with lots of storage.
