Every time we've cruised Equinox, which is approx 8 times, they only showed European Football in the Gastropub. If the games you want are on Sunday or Monday night, and carried by ESPN Deportes, you...

As long as the child is 12 months and older, not 11 months and a week or whatever, you should be fine. The reason why cruise lines have the age requirement is because there's no real medical care...

Nearly everyone plans a European cruise at least a year out, especially with a larger family. Not many ships easily accommodate a family of five, in one cabin, and those are booked very, very early....

I've cruised on both Serenity and Symphony using my Pride GoGo scooter and I've charged them in my accessible cabin. Never a problem. I think where the problem lies is in the fact that most...

When we were recently on board, I saw the sign that said it was open from 7am to 10 pm.

You can in no way compare the "delay" experienced with Serenity's debut and what's going on with the full on delays on Crystal's upcoming builds. I was booked on Serenity's maiden voyage, and...

Do not, I repeat, do not rely on Celebrity providing baby items. Bring everything yourself. We ordered formula and diapers when I cruised with my goddaughter, and despite follow up calls to make...

Uh, yes, there is such a thing as Easter Monday and it has nothing to do with a holiday falling during a weekend. I'm first generation Hungarian American and Easter Monday is a big event for...

I fully admit that I haven't been following the process for Edge, so can someone please explain what the heck that Magic Carpet is for? I think it's ugly and makes the ship look strange and not...

On Celebrity you text at a cost of $.50 to send and $.05 to receive per text. That can add up. Plus, if you keep data roaming on, your phone will be searching for things like email, and you could...

I'm full time disabled since the age of two after a bout with polio. I worked on the original ADA bill, back in the day when it was known as PL-94-192. There are a number of items that need...

As others have said, even if you bring bottles back at the ports of call, you will have those bottles taken and kept until the last night of the cruise. When you re board at a port, you will go...

I'm in my early 60's, cruise solo a lot, and never had a problem meeting people. Those solo cabin on NCL might be ok for some, but for me, I just couldn't sail in a cabin the size of a closet.

Go online to the website of the airline you're flying. Do a mock booking of that earlier flight and then click on "View Seats". You can see how many seats are available for that flight, and if there...

Only the parents can decide if it's appropriate. But they do need to take some things into consideration. First, if the baby is colicky, it's probably not a good idea as cabin walls are thin. ...

Recently returned from a cruise on Riviera and when my sister went to pick up a tender ticket for St Bart's, the crew member in the theater saw her suite card and said that suite holders didn't need...

Some lines require an adult age 25 or older to be IN the cabin with those who are underage. Also, no alcohol on ANY ship that cruises out of a US port, and if you're caught with booze, you will be...

The problem with Uber and Lyft is they don't handle anyone with disabilities. Actually, they refused me service because I'm disabled. Said they can't handle wheelchairs or scooters.

Laura claims this is a great updated version to keep things looking new and fresh. Who wants new and fresh. Yes, yes, people don't like change. But when it's change just for change sake, it isn't...
Does O Do A Lot Of Last Minute Upgrades
We've been following an upcoming cruise on Marina, waiting to see if there would be any kind of price reduction, knowing that this cruise is selling very poorly. Yesterday, there were 5 Oceania...

Just remember that there are a lot of people wanting to get on the ship for THEIR cruise after your's and the crew has to prep all the cabins for the new passengers. So no, you absolutely MUST leave...

Most cruise lines, except for Cunard, no longer do formal dressing at night. Everyone has demanded casual cruises and the cruise lines listened. They have different names for it, but some call it...

Does the Oceania price include airfare? Most of their cruises include air, and if that's the case, it's a great deal. Also, non-alcohol beverages are included on O and their specialty restaurants...

Not really. I've been in many suites on various ships where there isn't a step up into the bathroom. On Oceania's new builds, there isn't a step up in either of the bathrooms in the Owners or Vista...

We dined in Luminae on three cruises and you can certainly order off the MDR menu. They don't just give you that menu, you have to ask for it, but personally, the menus in Luminae are so much better...
