Thanks! I was interested in the Splendor, but figured it was on more ships.

Thank you for the review. I was very interested in this cruise, but couldn't make it happen for one reason or another. Glad you had a fab cruise.

Rotisserie on Carnival Ships

Carnival's website isn't very forthcoming. Do any ships still have the Rotisserie (upstairs from the Lido)?

I can see where cabanas might be a PITA to navigate on the Lido Deck, but I'm not fussed either at their existence or the fact that people pay to enjoy the use of them. I'm not at all sure that makes...

Folks on the NCL board have reported they have been able to take food from the buffet to their cabins. My own impression is that so long as you're a little discreet, and taking only a reasonable...

My experience on Carnival is on the Triumph and later class ships, not the Fantasy-class or the Spirit-class. I don't think I'd care for the Spirit-class, so I never tried them. The Fantasy class...

A nice gesture by HAL

HAL's Facebook page has a posting in tribute to the late BB King. A very classy thing to do.

My only disappointment in NCL recently has been regarding price, which is preventing me from sailing. I'm not greatly concerned about most of the recent changes, but I'm mightily offended by Del...

It's been a few years since I've been able to cruise NCL, but I liked the MDR food. I didn't think it was as good as Carnival, but I thought it was much better than Royal Caribbean. Food isn't a...

Volendam has a mid-week departure. That has advantages and disadvantages. It's up to you to determine if the one outweighs the other, based on the way you prefer to travel.

I remember many years ago when the Italian specialty restaurant was no charge, but you still had to make a reservation. It wouldn't hurt to try, or check when you're onboard.

The limited seating in NCL's Teppanyaki restaurants is an excellent point. It's usually the first specialty restaurant to fill up.

As do I. But really, it's 25 bucks to make a very special night for the kid, eating food he loves. Seems to me it would take away from the kid's experience to eat off somebody else's plate, 5 years...

Reminds me of one of those Royal Caribbean ships with the slippery hard floors. So many of HAL ships have seriously unattractive furniture. Doesn't bother me, so long as it's comfortable.
