Carnival already tried that when the Paradise first came out. It remained smoke-free for about two years (I think.) Trouble is, there aren't enough non-smokers to keep a non-smoking ship filled...

I'm guessing you're referring to Boca Clips? They work great, and are designed to fit most pool lounge chairs. Also, they're handy for hanging up a wet bathing suit in the bathroom. Just stretch the...

We both take Tervis tumblers with us when we cruise, for sodas, water, iced tea, etc. You can buy them at your local Bed, Bath and Beyond. You can also purchase them on board at either the Red Frog...

One of my biggest pet peeves is people that wear their pj's when they go out shopping. I'm often tempted (but never actually done it) to ask "Would it have been too much of an effort to pull on some...

I've not yet experienced anything like this. The closest situation would probably be Nassau, a common port for many ships cruising in the Eastern Caribbean. It's not uncommon to have two ships docked...

Although not a cruise related movie, but fun to watch just the same is "The Pirates of the Caribbean" (the first one). My favorite quote: "Why is the rum gone?" (hasn't been a problem, yet, on a...

I would like to add to this. On our most recent cruise, on the Breeze, we had a cove balcony. Loved it! All cove balconies are on Deck 2. We quickly discovered that the forward and mid ship elevators...

Depending on if the ship pulls into port bow first, or backs in aft first, will determine what you'll see on each side. In a way, it's like when you're on an airplane. If you're seated on the left...

If it won't break your budget, go for the cove balcony. If you love the ocean as much as I do, it's great to sit out there and watch the waves go by. There were several times that I saw flying fish....

It is your right to express your opinion. Perhaps a cabin on Deck 1 or 2 would "suck" for you, but not necessarily for someone else. You say "spend the money". A person can't spend what they don't...

September is typically considered "off-peak" for vacationing in the Mediterranean. You can find some good deals on cruises. The tricky part is trying to find a good deal on air fare.
