Well, seriously, if you are employed by a company, you are not likely to bad-mouth your current employer to a customer, whether or not you, personally, prefer one over another. Not if you want to...

Looks like a lady who would totally enjoy herself. Good for her!
We went on a cruise to Norway last year. Many of the available excursions were in buses, with little or no walking involved. I think,...

If there are chilled fruit soups on the dinner menu, they make a lovely dessert if you want a little something sweet, but not too heavy to end your meal.

If you want to order off the kids' menu,...

Unless they are laughing and pointing, who cares? AND they don't know who speaks what language and might understand them if they're being rude, so I'm sure they're pretty cautious about that.

If she hasn't been to New England/Canada, that's a very nice option. Doesn't have the grandeur of Norway, which IS impressive from the ship, I must say, but it does have its own charm. I checked,...

On board the ships, everything is the same as if they were sailing the Caribbean (or elsewere).
No need for converters or other currency.
The same can't be said for on land, pre or post cruise.

Aside from formal/elegant nights, I usually change for dinner into a top that I then wear the next day (or later in the cruise) with jeans/shorts. Almost everything I pack gets worn at...

The hubs and I do dress up, but not black tie and ball gowns.

IMHO, you just plain can't get a great pool experience on any cruise, any line, any ship. (I'm not a pool person, so that doesn't bother me a bit). It may be somewhat better on certain itineraries,...

I'm with you. After about 20 cruises, on multiple lines, I can't even come up with something that would make me quit (any given line) entirely.
Financial problems. Being bored with the itineraries I...

We cruise because we don't like sitting still.
Even our land vacations are generally road trips, hopping from place to place. Short attention span, I guess.

I'm sure there will be plenty of like-minded 20-somethings on any 7-day Caribbean cruise on either of those lines, but particularly during spring break.
