That's very true--and I do both. So far, though, using Better bidding, the hotels I have gotten have always been the star level listed there. I am aware, when booking, however, that this can vary,...

So far I've never had an issue with the I-books blocking my view, but I can see that it could happen. To me, it just looks so silly. Who wants to lug something that big around sightseeing? I don't...

I shared your concern the first time we had a cabin by the elevators--it was actually a room that had the door opening facing the foyer by the stairs and elevators.

Don't forget to try Hotwire; I've never paid more than $90 for a hotel in Ft. Lauderdale, usually quite a bit less. We usually stay in the airport/close to the port area, though, since it's only...

I've chosen 650 calories for my low days, because I find this easier to deal with than 500. On those days I usually don't eat until about 2 pm--sometimes later-- and then have a light lunch. Dinner...

I always take 2 or 3 extra--and a least one extra pair of sunglasses. I'm in trouble without my readers--I just use the drugstore type, and in a pinch the Dollar store ones work.

I think it depends a lot on the child. We've cruised with 3 and 5 year olds without a stroller at all, but they were extremely active kids; the 5's, especially, wouldn't have ridden in a stroller. ...

Our second cruise was on the Bolero--it was kind of a come-down after the Regina Magna. Both were in the mid-70's.

Our first cruise was on the Chandris line Regina--she was a grand old ship. Many things, especially food, have never been beat--we're talking plate size 'real' lobster tails, etc.

Unless something unusual happens, like the ship arriving late to port, you should be fine. I think our flight out of Rome last time left just a little later, and we had too much time, actually.
