I agree, but other lines aren't much better. I have noticed that pricing or supplements aren't being reduced until the very last minute; i.e., days before sailing instead of weeks before as they used...

I agree with most of this. One exception is the rare occasion when a solo supplement is reduced or (hallelujah!) waived. That's important information for solos to share. No need to attach an actual...

I'm guessing NCL still provides a carryon luggage check on embarkation day. They had it in one of the bars on the Jewel a few years ago, and it worked just like a coat check.

Looks good, especially the seafood offerings. I'm not surprised to hear about the desserts being lacking. That's pretty universal among all the lines I've sailed. Snagging a chocolate croissant at...

Quebec City's train station is a lovely building...almost a miniature Chateau Frontenac. I mean to take a peek inside if I ever get back there.

This is one of the best reviews I've read recently. A couple of questions for you (or for anybody who can answer):
1. No refrigerators in studio cabins, correct?
2. I've read some reviews stating...

Looking forward to the Sunshine in NY, but pretty hacked off Carnival got me all excited about a mid-October Canada/NE itinerary, and then yanked it. I'd like to go to Canada/NE again when its cold...

This is more in line with my idea of freestyle, and a good compromise. I'm sure it will figure prominently in future "promotions."

Also, FWIW, the price of the Historic Coasts cruise (7-day RT from Boston on Veendam in late August 2015) has reduced by a few hundred dollars. Pricing for that cruise doesn't move much. The total is...

I don't watch HAL pricing very carefully, but have noticed the early cruises in May have had good last-minute prices. Pricing doesn't seem to drop much for the summer or fall itineraries. The spring...

Same here. If the first venue can't accommodate me, then I try the next (or rarely, the next). They're big ships; there's always some place to eat. Reservations? Not for me.

Portholes don't matter much to me one way or the other, but I'm much better up front with noise and motion than in back with vibration. I also like how the 1a porthole cabins are laid out. The 4b...

For the most part, yes, the last minute deals are gone. It seems current NCL thinking is that cruisers will decide whatever "promotions" are on offer will make up the difference. Sometimes they do,...

I find myself in much the same situation, where NCL is several hundred dollars more than an equivalent cruise on CCL. For this year, I'd much prefer the Gem over the Splendor for a lot of reasons,...

Rotisserie on Carnival Ships

Carnival's website isn't very forthcoming. Do any ships still have the Rotisserie (upstairs from the Lido)?
