for Caitkin 1111

While European ports are more "dressy" than ones in the Caribbean, you need not bring 'work' clothes. In the Caribbean shorts and tee shirts are the norm. In most Europe ports, slacks or jeans or...

Like most things on cruise ships, it depends on the itinerary, the passengers and the ports. I find the casinos are more crowded on Caribbean cruises and less on European ones where the ports are so...

Going to take two off the list next month when I get to Venice and Dubrovnik on a 10 day Med cruise. Only ones that will be left are Australia and New Zealand. But I also still like some Caribbean...

Not an easy answer

It is not so much a matter of how many cruises, as how long they are and what kind of cabin you have. You'd have more complete information on the CelebrityCruises website under Captains Club. If...

Easy to buy

Any hardware store or Lowe's or Home Depot will have a variety of these in sizes from small to huge. You can get the magnets with clips or hooks, as you need. And someone there will direct you...

two ways to go.

although most people assume using I-95, don't forget about the Florida Turnpike. Yes, it is a toll road but quite reasonable. Also, there are many fewer exits, so it

To me there are two reasons for select dining:

Not necessarily

Don't believe the "fully refundable" part. The on-board deposit can be transferred to another cruise but you do not get it returned. I just went through this: my excellent, experienced travel...

Rental option

Hertz also has a downtown rental office. They will transfer you to the port for free after you turn in your car. Or a cab is about $15. We usually take the cab as their van is crowded and you need...

We were on Eclipse in December. We had select dining so no need to book anything in MDR.
