And, if you go to the Tervis website, you'll find even more than what B.B.&B. sells. You can even order a custom made tumbler.

I don't recall ever seeing deep fried fish offered on the menu on any of the ships we've been on. Can't say for sure about the Breeze. Our first cruise on her is in May. Maybe the fish is offered on...

Hard to guess. The 7 day Eastern Caribbean itinerary can be very popular for families. As I said, there may still be some schools on Spring Break at that time. If you're wanting to avoid kids on...

It would probably depend on the cruise. What is the departure port, length of cruise, and itinerary? April 18th may still be a part of Spring Break for some schools.

There is a third possibility. You may be able to hire a taxi van for a flat rate. I believe I saw them in San Juan, but I'm not sure about the other ports mentioned. Just make sure that, whatever you...

A few years ago, we went on a cruise in mid February, and there were a lot of kids on there (more than we expected). Turns out that a school district on the East coast had an early Spring Break. This...

For water excursions, such as cave tubing, we purchase a disposable waterproof camera. By the way, they're much cheaper at a discount store, such as Walmart, than they are on the ship.

There are some "off-peak" periods during the year, when prices go down, primarily because demands are lower during those times. One off-peak period is the two or three week period between the end of...

The dress code could be posted on a big sign in bright neon letters and there are some who would either ignore it or say "Oh. I didn't see that." Enforcing it seems to vary from ship to ship, and...

Homesick? No, but then our longest cruise to date has been 7 days, and our next cruise coming up is 8 days. If anything, while at home, I get "cruise sick" at times, wishing we could be on a cruise...

This is just a guess, but it may have something to do with Facebook's settings and not Cruise critic. I think even Photobucket has certain limitations when posting photos.

On the ship, during the first week in January. At our house, depending on the weather, I try to get them taken down before Easter.:D
