I enjoyed your review. It's nice to see a review from somebody who sails in normal cabins. I tend to skip over the penthouse/Haven reviews, since they're so outside the realm of my experience. Thanks!

I've done a inside guarantee a couple of times. Both times I was assigned a bottom of the barrel inside cabin almost immediately, and the assignment never changed. Sometimes I've wondered if it might...

Cabin 10531 on the Spirit. Bigger than an average inside cabin, and laid out very sensibly.

pumpkin soup, the banana split on the kids menu, and the turkey tenderloins with farfalle and peas in a cream sauce...don't know if they still have all this, because it's been a few years

Exactly. They do pretty much the same thing, with more choice. I think timeshares can work, but not for me.

I like the one-way cruise with the inclusion of the ABC islands, for someone who likes hot weather cruises, but it's...one-way, even though there are non-stop flights between BWI and San Juan. As I...

I can't offer any help on cabin categories, since I usually sail bottom-of-the-barrel guarantee inside cabins, but I think you'll find much to like about NCL.

Ooh, very poor taste. Not that it's okay in any situation, I find it hard to believe anyone would do that deliberately, knowing your particular situation. I bet he'd apologize pretty quickly if you...

That one-way to San Juan including the ABC islands is a winner. I'm still holding out for a Carnival Canada/NE cruise from Baltimore.

One of the best ways to do it, if you don't insist on being served at dinner, is to flip the norm: eat breakfasts and lunch in the MDR whenever possible, and eat dinner in the buffet when it's far...

Great review. Are the sides of the bathtub very tall? In my experience, it's okay getting in, but a mighty long drop getting out. Can you shed any light on how it is on the Getaway?

I started cruising just as the midnight buffets were ending. While they were pretty, the food was generally unremarkable. I think the 24-hour Blue Lagoon and O'Sheehan's are a great improvement. As...

Nor should they, beyond the quantity cabin discounts (3rd and 4th passenger discounts that apply to any 3rd and 4th passenger).

Pricing is very good the week after USA Thanksgiving and the first week or two of December. That's when I'd choose a hot weather cruise.

"buckirj1, was that Mars in Ellicott City?"
Sure was. I was on my way home from church, and you appeared to be on your way from a scout meeting. Hope you're having a great cruise.
