I have used these kiosks at the Toronto airport twice now returning from the U.S. What a joy not to have to stand in a long line of passengers from various countries who require extra scrutiny. I...

I agree. I'm looking at Norwegian Fjords cruise in 2017 and the price for the single cabin is ridiculous compared to an inside guarantee. With an inside guarantee, you also have a chance to be...

They may have changed the rules because I was on the same btb on the NA in January 2015 and was told I had to attend both musters. I didn't mind doing it again. However, it might be hard on people...

Thank you for the pictures. I will have the same type of cabin this December on the K-Dam. I like the fact that the shower has a door instead of those awful shower curtains but I will miss the small...

The internet generation needs to be entertained from the moment they wake to the moment they fall asleep. These ships are built for that. I'm still working and when I get away on vacation, the last...

Agree 100%. Looks like a floating building. Not classy like HAL ships (and that includes the K-Dam).

That's the way I look at it. I'm a 3-star mariner and platinum on Princess and I've never had service that was so bad that it would even make me think of taking off the HSC. The only time that I...

Ditto. Some of the excuses are laughable. My feeling is that if you truly cannot afford the HSC, then pick a cheaper cruise or don't cruise at all. I hope that in my lifetime, HAL just adds the HSC...

It should be engraved on a plaque right across from the toilet bowl at eye level.:D Sometimes I wonder if people are too embarrassed to put "things" in the garbage can and instead try to flush it.
