As others have said, we prepay so that it's over and done with. Now, one may argue that that's like an interest-free loan to the cruise line. For convenience sake, that's fine with me, since the...

Recently I've found the most formal to be Europe, particularly out of Southampton, probably because there were a lot of Brits with ease of access to the port, no airline luggage worries for them....

The last few times I've flown business and first didn't even have foot rests! Talk about uncomfortable, if you are short like me. Feet dangling makes my legs ache and my back hurt. (I think it might...

I like the dress. Unless it comes in petite sizes (2, 4 or 6 petite - 4'11"), it would be out for me.
The sleeves would probably drive me nuts (it's hard to say without trying it on and wearing it),...

We've cruised NCL, RCI, CCL, & X on 5 different European itineraries (including Turkey, Morocco & Croatia) and never had to turn over our passports.

Generally, I'd say, no, the CD doesn't impact me a whole lot (don't play games or hang out at the pool or participate in group activities much.)
HOWEVER, the difference between the early morning...

I guess I'm confused, and have been for some time.
Aside from the new "trial" fee for room service, what does NCL charge for that other mainstream lines don't also charge for?
Alcohol, bottled...

I couldn't tell you who the CD was on any of my 20ish cruises.
