I would prefer both, but if I have to choose, I definitely select pre-cruise. Once I'm at the departure port, I'm truly on vacation. Otherwise, I'm stressing out about missing the flight or possible...

It's an attempt at minimizing congestion at the port - traffic, luggage drop off, lines. It's a valiant attempt. They did that when we sailed out of Southampton in the spring.
That said, I'm sure...

I'm willing to bet the...

Ugh?

Seriously, I've been on CCL, RCCL, NCL, HAL, Princess and Celebrity.
I wouldn't say "Ugh" to any of them. There are differences, but nothing so blindingly different that I'd turn up my nose...

Our last RCI cruise was May, and while there was the option to make reservations, we never did. We never waited for more than a couple of minutes to be seated at a table for two. YMMV if you go at...

I think NCL is the only line that goes to Bermuda from both Boston & NY on a weekly basis. The others seem to go more sporadically, with Royal Caribbean being the next most frequent.

Ditto. I would find that unacceptable, as would most people, I imagine. Having to involuntarily share a table seems like defeating part of the purpose of paying for specialty dining.

Yes, I would and have - either the tail end of one, or I've come down with one whilst on board. I wouldn't cancel for simply a cold. Fresh air and sunshine goes a long way to make you feel better....
