  1. Go to the Vacations to Go website. Access the 90 day ticker. Then look for either the repositioning section or the transAtlantic section. That is a quick way to go.
  2. From what I see by studying the deck plans of Royal Caribbean and Carnival and Celebrity and by paying attention to comments made by fellow bloggers, one can no longer make assumptions about locker room sauna and steam that we formerly made. Royal Caribbean has been removing free sauna and steam from its mid-sized ships. In the past, Carnival could be relied upon to have free steam/sauna, but some of its ships now have sauna only. Celebrity has been down-grading its once generous saunas and seems not to have included them in its newest ship.. For me, this is a disappointing trend and affects my decisions about which cruises I choose. Holland America seems consistent about having free sauna, even on its new ships. Princess hasn't removed them from the ships that I've looked at. I hope those companies continue to see the advantage of having them.
  3. It appears that the Carnival Splendor does not have both free sauna and steam rooms in the locker area, but a single sex sauna only. Can someone who has been on the Splendor describe the men's locker room/sauna? Thanks
  4. I've heard rumored that local residents (Tampa, Fort Lauderdale, etc) have access to very inexpensive last minute deals to fill up ships that are close to sailing. Is this true? If so, how are they informed.
  5. My experience with pies on the cruise ships/cruise lines on which I have traveled is that the pies tend to have stodgy, thick crusts.
  6. Celebrity Millennium men's locker room has a large sauna with big window, no free steam, at least 6 showers and plenty of lockers. Key at spa desk
  7. Emerald Princess has free steam-large and free sauna-medium both in the men's locker room. 4 showers, plenty of self programming lockers
  8. Yup. I think we've milked this topic dry. About that ocean front property, however,............
  9. i I wonder, however, if those who are drivers in the USA are programmed to look to the right for road signs, so that is a reason they do so. And if this is true,the Brits,who as drivers may be programmed to look to the left for road signs, their "programming" might cause them to override the natural physical tendency to look right that you are talking about.

  11. Maybe it's like how water is reported to swirl down a drain. Counterclockwise north of the equator and clockwise south of the equator. :)
  12. Having mainly eaten on the top dining room before, I can tell you that while being seated by a window is nice especially at noon, since most of the days are sea days, there is nothing other than sea to look at, which is soothing. Due to the large opening looking down at the dining floor below, however,it is also very interesting to be seated at the railing to have a view of the diners.There is much to observe. The food. Those seated at the captain's table. The hustle and bustle of the dinner crowd in general.
  13. Hi- We went from Vancouver to Tokyo in 2014. That time the cruise did not stop in Alaska but went to Russia. Otherwise it like this year's cruise, which we are also going on. As I remember it the weather was fine-good for running on the jogging deck. The trip was fine . We liked the food. As lovers of jazz and classical music, and not lovers of Vegas-like shows, the entertainment was disappointing. But that was just us. Others perceived things differently, no doubt. But we are doing the trip again which indicates that overall we were satisfied. My wife quilts so she was satisfied to joined others who did needlework on some of the days. We like sea days. Obviously there was no shortage of them. The Japanese stops were all interesting. We wandered around cities, checked out stores. Were impressed at the relative "smallness of scale" that is necessary when many people live in a small geographical space. Ask questions about what you are looking for in a cruise and I can respond.
