If HAL doesn't want to give double points to all solo travellers, why not give them partial points for what they paid for the cruise. I cannot afford to pay for a verandah + as a solo. If I pay...

Why not? I've been known to order 3 escargot portions and a salad and that's my entrée.:) I have to say that I have never been refused a request in the MDR. On one cruise, on the second part of a...

On the ship, I tend to eat foods that I am usually too lazy to make at home. I eat a lot of meat, pastries, etc. When I get home, I refuse to get on a scale for about a month. After a month of...

I always to the gym on the first day to scout it out. When I get home and someone asks whether I went to the gym, I can honestly say "yes".:D

I always take a couple of extra skirts and slacks that have elastic waist bands for the second part of the cruise. It's that darn bread pudding every afternoon.:D

The cutbacks in MDR staff would disappoint me the most as I enjoy a good dining experience. My last Caribbean cruise was on Princess and I felt that the MDR service has gone downhill with them also....

That's the great thing about a btb cruise; I get two chances at a sunny sailaway and two chances at my favourite beach, HMC. After watching the sailaways and reading POA's live posts, I all revved...

I love the sound of the Regal. Maybe because I used to watch the Love Boat religiously and dreamed of one day being able to go on a cruise. I didn't get on my first cruise ship until I was 40, but...

Probably put the insulin in the fridge and forgot to take it out. I'm 57 and I find that if I don't put a big yellow stickee on my door, I am likely to forget something important to take with me. :D

I do that at least once every cruise when I'm cruising solo. I wish I could afford a balcony. The only time I can afford it is when my mom cruises with me.

I have never had breakfast in MDR either. I'm lucky if I ever make it to the Lido on time, especially on sea days. Are you looking forward to our cruise as much I am, especially after the great...

See a sunrise. Something about the motion of the ocean, or those HAL mattresses, that keep my usual insomnia at bay. Sleeping 10 hours a night is a luxury for me. I have, however, never missed a...
