I'm sure there will be plenty of like-minded 20-somethings on any 7-day Caribbean cruise on either of those lines, but particularly during spring break.

We're a party of 2 and always choose MTD (or whatever it's called on various lines). I can count on one hand, over several cruises, both the number of times we've made reservations and the number of...

It could seem too long, if you don't select the itinerary according to your port/sea day preference.
For example, we love port-intensive itineraries and look for fewer sea days. (We generally don't...

Personally, I don't give a rat's patootie if my lanyard, wristband, or anything else I wear is "appealing".

I would prefer both, but if I have to choose, I definitely select pre-cruise. Once I'm at the departure port, I'm truly on vacation. Otherwise, I'm stressing out about missing the flight or possible...

It's an attempt at minimizing congestion at the port - traffic, luggage drop off, lines. It's a valiant attempt. They did that when we sailed out of Southampton in the spring.
That said, I'm sure...

I'd love to see the percentage of how many people have had their IDs (passport or other) lost/stolen vs. how many have missed/nearly missed the ship, for whatever reason.

I'm willing to bet the...

Ugh?

Seriously, I've been on CCL, RCCL, NCL, HAL, Princess and Celebrity.
I wouldn't say "Ugh" to any of them. There are differences, but nothing so blindingly different that I'd turn up my nose...

I think NCL is the only line that goes to Bermuda from both Boston & NY on a weekly basis. The others seem to go more sporadically, with Royal Caribbean being the next most frequent.

Ditto. I would find that unacceptable, as would most people, I imagine. Having to involuntarily share a table seems like defeating part of the purpose of paying for specialty dining.
