stobe1 is correct. We like to go in May, before Memorial weekend. The weather is just about perfect, most kids are still in school, and the prices are typically lower between the end of Spring Break...

Despite what some think, lounge chairs cannot be reserved. If you see an item, such as flip-flops, a towel or a book on a lounge chair for 40 minutes, and no one has showed up to sit on it, then it's...

On embarkation day, board as early as possible, and explore the ship from end to end, and top to bottom, so you'll have at least a rough idea of where everything is. On our very first cruise, we had...

You may be somewhat confused. Carnival is having a new port built on the Atlantic side, close to the north end of the island, named Amber Cove. It's supposed to be ready for docking in October....

I would base the choice (in part) on where you will most likely be spending the majority of time on the ship. If you'll be spending most of your time on the Lido deck, then take 6463. Although it's...

Have to agree with this. We have sailed on both Royal Caribbean and Carnival, and like them both. However, Carnival is more affordable for us. Yes, I've seen the many complaints about the food,...

Unless the ship is going backwards, cigarette smoke (or any other kind of smoke) will not blow forward. If by chance there is a tail wind, any outdoor smoke will probably be blown away so fast that...

Since Amber Cove is being developed for Carnival, could you find out what kind of beach area is being developed? Will it be somewhat similar to Mahogany Bay? Pictures please, if possible. Thanks.

Has ANYONE ever had a cabin steward named "Stewart"?

To answer the OP's question, I think you're being just a little over sensitive. While the sunglasses may have been in a case, they were out...

Basically, you know your child best. Do you feel you're being "overly paranoid" about letting him have the run of the ship? That's question only you can answer with certainty.

If it's an inside cabin, it makes no difference at all. If it's an ocean view, well, the ocean looks pretty much the same on one side as it does on the other. And if it's a balcony cabin, and you're...

If you're planning any beach time while in port, or pool time while on the ship, take two bathing suits. That way, you'll always have a dry bathing suit for later. ;)

Seriously?! I never cared for them. They were pretty lousy. We usually just left them on the vanity. You'd have to be chocaholic in bad need of a chocolate fix to want to eat one.
