If you know ahead of time that you won't be there, it would be a courtesy to let someone know that - your waiter, the maitre'd (ideally), or even your table mates. If it's spur of the moment, you can...

Nope. No interest. I couldn't tell you the biggest ship I've cruised on, but it wasn't one of the mega-liners and whatever it was, it was more than big enough.
I wish there were more smaller ships...

If there's a choice between 2 nearly equal options (same itinerary, similar class of ship), I will go with the least expensive, even if it means a few compromises: is the room a bit smaller, are...

OMG, Sam and Isaac, get a room already! (or perhaps they have)

The designers who are so in love with jumpsuits should have to wear one for a night on the town, have a few drinks (maybe one too many), stand in a line for the loo, then try to get out of it (where...

Oh. My. God.
They HAVE to be keeping him around for the "show" of it. (Last night's outfit wasn't really the worst of the bunch. At least it was summery. Missed the mark on "badass", though.)

If I lose, I consider it entertainment I paid for.
If I break even, I consider it a "win".
That said, I have won a few bucks a couple of times (I've spent much more over the years than I've won)....

I've found European cruises tend to be a bit dressier than others.
That said, NCL is freestyle, so you can wear what you want. At the very least, though, we dress as we would going out to a nicer...

I've never seen bugs of any kind on board a ship. We always get a balcony and spend considerable time on it while docked, before and after excursions.
I've never even encountered mosquitoes ashore,...

Not 100% in agreement with the winner. It was fine, but I thought the other top look should have won.

I've been to Nassau a few times. I don't hate it. I don't even dislike it. My experiences there were fine.
I just feel like "been there, done that". I think, for many experienced cruisers, it's the...

The exception? On Carnival Sunshine we found ourselves directly...

Agree! That final look was actually lovely, not quite baroque, but very nice, but it was practically a team challenge! They really have to stop helping to that extent.
