  1. Amen. I don’t see why dinner can’t be a special time to have everyone put in something nice and treat it like a special event and not “chow down” time. PS - I have a pair of jeans with holes. They are called my painting pants or work in the yard pants (don’t get it, don’t want to)
  2. May I ask what would possess people to want to cruise with an infant ? They definitely won’t remember the experience and the parents need to be tending to the baby constantly so that can’t be very much fun. Maybe I just don’t get it. Can someone explain it to me
  3. Maybe I am of the minority and call me naive but I would also assumed this type of onboard activity would/should be free i mean really, are they now going to charge for the mini golf too ?
  4. Great feedback everyone . Looks like this post has run its natural course so I bid you all farewell I'm so glad we had this time together Just to have a laugh or sing a song Seems we just get started and before you know it Comes the time we have to say So long Goodnight! (Ear pull)
  5. OP here again. Great feedback. Went through all the posts and so far, here are the ones that got a minimum of 3 votes : 1) Bahamas 12 2) Jamaica 10 3) Mexico 6 4) Turkey 4 5) Italy 4 6) San Juan 3 I’ve also concluded to some degree that the grass is greener as Europeans prefer Caribbean to Europe and North Americans prefer Europe to the Caribbean (insane)
  6. Basically the same thread as the one called “What ports do you just stay on the ship” https://boards.cruisecritic.com/topic/2681931-what-ports-do-you-just-stay-on-the-ship/page/9/#comments
  7. The cruise lines need to figure out that variety is the spice of life. I agree with your assessment that current market demand likely means no big changes but the cruise line that starts offering different port options will start to win over customers and survive in the long run
  8. Cruise line offered insurance is like cruise line offered excursions in that they try to make you feel like if you don’t get their product , you’ll get left in the cold and you’re on your own
  9. This answer is like the famous reply when interviewer asks the applicant on what are their weaknesses, and the answer goes like this: David: What do you think are your greatest strengths as a manager?Michael: Why don't I tell you what my greatest weaknesses are? I work too hard. I care too much. And sometimes I can be too invested in my job.
  10. As for the idea building of building new ports to lessen the load of existing ports, the main objection from me is that I wouldn’t want a lot of new “faux” ports like Amber Cove or Costa Maya
  11. My manners pet peeve is standing in a buffet line and having the person behind you literally climbing on your back and pushing you from behind thinking their action is going to get them to the front faster. ”Please give me a little space and chill out”. Pushing me isn’t going to move the line any faster. Let’s respect our personal spaces.
  12. Somebody reminded me of a few more less desirable ports - Costa Maya - Progresso We had one older man in our group that had to immediately return to the ship in Progresso as the smell brought back flashbacks of somewhere he served in the military (smell is a very powerful sense)
  13. Sorry to get back on track to the OP question “why do you cruise a lot” It’s hard to describe unless you’ve cruised about the peace and serenity you feel when you’re on the ocean or sea and being able to stare out as far as you can see and have that feeling on how far away you are from civilization . As for the question about how long , a week is good, two weeks is pushing it as there is no place like home
  14. 🙂 About the Environmental, can you be more specific what’s going on at Carnival that isn’t happening on other lines ? For us, we are Platinum on Carnival and just needed a change and try something different so we are trying out Celebrity Edge next spring
  15. Are you saying it was sold out for dinners for the entire cruise on the 1st day? What do you recommend to get a booking ?
  16. As much as someone said earlier that it’s not a Grass is Greener thing, it’s definitely a Grass is Greener thing (people don’t appreciate what they have easy access to for something they have to go far out of their way to see)
  17. Nice choices for a second anniversary. Not sure how you will keep topping that off in future years. We’ve been married 33 years and done 16 cruises and not been to Alaska as yet (my wife likes the Caribbean and sunshine and claims we are still too young to do Alaska) Go figure
  18. For $1, I can buy and bring my own bar of soap
  19. Bernard’s tours is your answer I recommend SXM Island Tour II https://www.bernardstours.com/tours/sxm-island-tour-2/
  20. Beetlejuice is a clown so I think on a higher level, the reporter got it right
  21. Some cruise lines have been charged with dumping garbage into the Caribbean but same cruise lines still thrive with passenger bookings Ethics Dilemma - would you still book on one of these cruise lines if you knew they were dumping garbage in the sea ?
