  1. Ehhh....no. I like fresh towels, ice and a freshly made bed. It is an integral part of what is a service based experience.
  2. There just isn't the demand. On our cruise last month the line was completely empty after 5:30.
  3. .....only if you pretend the cost of the product is the primary factor in it being profitable. In my restaurant days the more food costs went north of 25% the larger the probability you won't make it into the black. The overhead around providing that product is where the majority of the customers tab goes.
  4. No problems checking it an it will certainly fit under the bed. The biggest problem is it will be pretty heavy when full and many times self disembark involves stairs and escalators. Make sure you can handle the weight.
  5. Correct. I have no idea why some think it is a high category inside.
  6. ....but the higher category would actually be an ID. Still a FWD cabin but on decks 10-12. Look at the Escape for example....mid ship and higher is the prime insides which are IA's. IF is worst....lowest cabins which are either FWD/AFT. Category.....Deck.....Location.....Avg Per Person IA....13,14,15....Mid$899 Located on a high deck. Sleeps up to four. IB........11,12......Mid$889 Convenient mid-ship location. Sleeps up to three. IC......13,14Forward, Aft$879 Located forward or aft of the ship. Some triples and quads are available. Some connect. ID.......10,11,12......Forward, Aft$859 Located forward or aft of the ship. Some triples and quads are available. IF........8,9........Forward, Aft$849 Convenient location, some on the same deck as The Waterfront.
  7. Also....I think you are backwards. An IF is their worst inside cabin, an IA is the best which are mid ship on the higher decks.
  8. ....because deck level isn't the sole factor in deciding the value of a cabin.
  9. We usually bring some of the stadium seat things to sit on if we plan to go somewhere without facilities like we do in many ports. I don't mind sitting on a towel but I like having a back rest so it solves that without being bulky. I also have a small sun shade that folds up to nearly nothing. All is light and no hassle to carry with you. The seats actually fit in my backpack and the shade is small enough to carry because it is a little shorter than a bag chair.
  10. LOL....I think some on here will be claiming PTSD just for looking at the photos. "Where is my compensation Carnival?!?!"

  12. Well.....I think their goal is to have a gift shop with a wide variety of items instead of a department store. They don't have the space.
  13. There is no such thing as a 'chain cruise line'. They all aren't selling the same pair of shoes. Although similar, they all offer a brand specific product that have countless variables even within their own brand which have their own associated costs and value. All this proves is you are looking at a complex mathematical formula with emotion only which keeps you from understanding the business model. The market sets the price, bottom line.
  14. Why do people think cruise lines are supposed to operate like a low income charity? They are a for profit business who do their shareholders a disservice whenever they don't seek to maximize profits.
  15. Some people should just stay home huddled in their safe space.
  16. I just got off last weekend also. The huge TV in the cabins is great but the channel selection sucks so it was really of little use.
  17. NCL changed the entire industry, before it was all the same. Eat with strangers at a specific time, hungry or not.
  18. LOL. ok....you are right....we get it.
  19. We cruised right after that so it had my attention. Everything I heard was 25% which was the same thing I shared on here from a few who discussed the situation. https://boards.cruisecritic.com/showpost.php?p=54003169&postcount=27
