I'm not sure its still on the MDR menu, but there used to be an entree with potato gnocchi, mushrooms, and pumpkin that was incredible. There are also some very nice cheese rolls in the lunchtime...

Freestyle on NCL is about a dang sight more than dining. RCCL has a mighty long way to go to catch up to REAL freestyle. That said, I sort of like what they're doing, but it'd take a lot for me to...

Sounds like a lovely dinner for your last night. I didn't think about Freestyle in those terms until you brought it up, but you're exactly right: NCL takes the initiative of setting up lots of things...

We'd be much better off if we relaxed and realized it's all just clothes and not "play."

On my Canada/NE cruise on the Jewel, I wore jeans, turtlenecks and sneakers the whole time: main dining (in the smaller of the two dining rooms), captain's reception, and all. Please don't stress out...

These kinds of threads happen every time NCL (probably any cruise line, for that matter) runs a promotion about 3rd and 4th passengers sailing free or greatly reduced.

I've never gone on a cruise without insurance for medical and evacuation. I have some pre-existing conditions, so I need to purchase insurance early to be sure I'm covered.

It's definitely workable with young children, but with teens?! It'll be awfully tight, but will work out as long as nobody expects to move around in the cabin very much. I'd be more worried about the...

I rarely pay attention to the percentage of solo supplements, though the rare occasion of waiving the solo supplement will certainly grab my attention. I have in mind a "should" cost when I first...

It's great PR to have the Boss seen as accessible. It's even better when the Boss agrees to actually be accessible. I think NCL is lucky to have Mr. Sheehan.

1. I think NCL is a little less relaxed than Carnival, and much more fun.
2. I loved the food the last time I sailed Carnival, but I also found much to like on NCL more recently. I especially loved...

I enjoyed my Carnival cruises for a long time. For me, the decline happened when Carnival started making solo cruisers into second class citizens. Service and especially entertainment started to...

Thanks for the explanation. I know a number of folks who have taken the Megabus from Baltimore to NY, and loved it. I've considered it, but I don't know how the luggage situation works. Everyone I've...

Yes, this. It happened on my last Royal Caribbean cruise, and I really had to stick to my guns to eat alone. On Open Dining, no less! On my other Royal Caribbean cruise, back in the old days when...

I'd say you'd be fine if you were taking a NE corridor train, because I've done it, but it looks like you have to take an Empire service train. Could you come down to NYP on the Maple Leaf the night...

Timbuktu might not have the very best crabcakes, but I think they're very close to Olive Garden and G&M in that order. All 3 places are pretty closely bunched in the top 3 of crabcake places near the...
