That's what I do too--it's nice to have it done ahead of time.

We always use the safe and have had no problems at all. We have had to get it opened a couple of times; it's always a very secure...

My husband no longer takes his tux or a suit, mostly due to problems wearing dress shoes.

He wears a sports coat and if packing space is a problem just wears it on the plane. It can usually be...

I haven't heard of real discounts of ship-based tours. Sometimes it 'looks' like there is a slight savings, but I'm pretty sure it's not a real bargain.

The best way to get better prices is to...

We prefer at least 14 nights, due to the hassle of flying and because 7 nights just goes by so quickly. We'd do longer except for issues with an elderly parent that makes it difficult for us to be...

I have taken Woolite, but now just usually use the bar soap that's in the cabin. Sometimes I use the shampoo or body wash. One less thing to pack, and it all seems to work equally well.

Not needed for your ports. I've never taken inoculation records in the Caribbean, or most other places. There may be a few itineraries that require a specific inoculation (Like Yellow Fever), but...

We'd do the first one, because we've only been to Belize and Roatan once, (Cozumel several times), while we've been on the islands of the second itinerary many times.

But we enjoy both and always...

I was looking forward to the pillow menu too--but they didn't seem to have much choice, a not the style i use at home anyway (curved for neck to rest on) so it wasn't any use to me.

The extras don't mean much. The only ones I appreciated were the extra points and the footstools on the balcony. The canapes were stale and useless, didn't even notice the other amenities/upgrades....

We've never done it, probably never will. We've also never been sick on a ship, knock wood.

The media strikes again with their scare-the-bejeesus out of people about every little thing. It's a...

It's really not that bad--and we've had six ships in port at one time. Waiting an hour or so will get rid of most of the crowds, but even at the most popular time you should be fine. Not everyone...

We've done that before and have had good experiences. We rarely take ship tours. There might be a few islands I would think twice about doing that. Besides agreeing on the price, be sure they...

We've been to there places several times, except just once to Labadee.

For Grand Cayman we really enjoyed the snorkel and stingray city tour with Captain Marvin. The first time we did a ship tour...

I only watched the dances last night as we are very busy remodeling our basement for my mom, so I didn't really see the dresses.

I am hoping Rumer wins, next Ryker. I admire Noah, and thought his...

We almost always get a table for two, if we want it, with little to no wait. However, we usually eat later than 7. The earlier times seem to have more waits.

We don't make reservations normally,...

We never have but might sometime. I guess we just don't see the need. I wouldn't say never.

We never seem ready to spend all that time and money when for the most part the MDR is fine.

We did river tubing in Jamaica once; it was fun--would have liked it to be longer, but we did have young children with us.

In Belize we did the cave tubing; again we enjoyed it.

We usually tip our steward extra, but seldom the waiters as we do Anytime dining and sometimes don't eat in the main dining room at night. We also leave the auto-tips on.

That's a big no from me too. I would not like it for many reasons--privacy, comfort, looks and more.

I knew we could, but honestly we didn't need anything to eat at that time, and often weren't in the stateroom anyway.

I've never looked at a roll call before we booked a cruise, and if I did I can't imagine that it would influence our decision. We book cruises based on many criteria, but that's not one.
