I'd prefer to have as much choice as possible, and that includes having a buffet.

I eat almost exclusively at the no charge dining venues, and find the food suits me. YMMV, but I wouldn't book a specialty without trying the MDR. I prefer the smaller of the two MDRs onboard most...

I think we read the same book...a Carnival crew member, I think. Very interesting behind-the-scenes stories.

Thanks for the definitive answer. No gym locker room or showers on the Star. That's disappointing, but not at all a deal breaker.

Dream cruise! Hope the North Cape cruise is still being offered in a couple of years when I can do it. Thanks for posting.

Thanks for the review. Many of your observations match my own, though I'd give the edge to NCL because entertainment and service are the most important cruise aspects to me. YMMV, and does (!) and...

I'd also be interested to know if the gym showers are free. I could care less about the spa stuff, but knowing about gym showers would be useful.

Thanks for the review. I've noticed some disorganization, too, but I've taken that itinerary so many times it doesn't bother me. I can see where it would be frustrating, though. I hope to take the...

I'm a solo cruiser, and usually don't get any on-board credit. Beyond the DSC, it's rare for me to spend much more than $50 or so. I take few or no ship excursions, don't eat in the specialty...

I don't. I might email or phone home mid-cruise, but that's about it. I enjoy reading other folks' vacation posts on social media, though.

I kind of admire all you planners. I'm not one of you, but it's fun reading about what you do ahead of time. Flying by the seat of my pants works for me. Planning works for you. NCL accommodates all...

I have. I figure eating dinner at the buffet is one more component of the beauty of freestyle. There's a decent choice, the place is less frantic than at breakfast and lunch, and sometimes you just...

The last time I sailed RCI, I had MTD and requested a large table every night I went to the MDR. They kept wanting to steer me toward a table for two with another solo. I can manage sitting with a...

I also had MTD and prepaid grats on my last RCI cruise, and ended up dividing dinners pretty evenly between the MDR and WJ. The Windjammer was much quieter and less crowded than the main dining room....

I'm not sure what one part of the question has to do with the other part of the question. I don't have my picture taken. I don't dress formally. Neither has any bearing on the other.

I agree. Driving is a big mistake. You can get to both Concord and Salem via MBTA rail in much less time. Still, I think you could easily skip them and concentrate on activities in the city.
