  1. @Truckcop Howdy and welcome to the Cruise Critic message boards!!! I suggest you check out the Italy Ports forum. The majority of your fellow Cruise Critic members that have been to Rome frequent that forum and provide feedback there. Browse through the thread titles and l👀k for thread titles of interest.

  2. Howdy! The Atlantic hurricane season starts June 1 & ends November 30. Caribbean cruises are usually a bit cheaper during the season... but also risky. However, all cruise lines will do their best in trying to keep their guests & crew out of harm's way. I was on a RCI Rhapsody OTS cruise out of Galveston the week of Hurricane Wilma in 2005. I call it "The Boll Weevil" cruise. We cruised around the Caribbean "lookin' for a home" since we could not go to any of the 3 scheduled ports. The captain did make it to 2 other ports. The 1 missed port's fees were refund
  3. As Little Beaver used to say, "You betchum, Red Ryder!" I luck out in the fact I do not have to pay for parking. I park at a friend's house on the island. We are both BOIs & have been friends since the 5th grade. They take me to & from the ship. Just wish we had a better choice of itineraries out of Galveston. Have been to Cozumel waaaaay too many times! But then, I'm really one of those cruisers that considers whatever ship I'm on is my destination.

  7. @Malcyjdaddio Howdy! Welcome back to the message board as I see it has been awhile since you have posted.

  8. My experience with "offered status" has to do with not being able to register for the Celebrity Cruises/Cruise Critic Connections party (aka Meet & Mingle). Kept getting the "Cruise Critic Registration is not allowed for bookings in a status other than booked." Contacted my TA. She investigated with her Celebrity person. They found the Celebrity system showed our booking and a few others in our group listed as "On Offer" instead of "Booked" as they should be. They were all corrected and we all were then able to register for the party. Host Kat
