    I'm thinking about doing Avarius at Costa Maya port as part of the port pass program. However, I'm a little skittish about swinging bridges. Does anybody know if these bridges swing a lot and about how long they are? I can handle a little of each. Also, I'm coming on MSC Cruises and they don't seem to offer the port pass as part of their excursion program. I assume you can buy the port pass once on shore---correct?
  2. Thanks for your replies. I'm surprised they haven't had a ton of complaints. Well, maybe it wouldn't matter because corporate greed takes the priority over guest satisfaction.
  3. I recently cruised on HAL's Nieuw Statendam and was surprised that there was no longer a true cruise staff. Only a cruise director and an assistant cruise director. This certainly cut down on the number of available activities offered and was my only major problem with the cruise. Does anyone know if this change is only on the new Pinnacle Class ships or have they gone this cost-cutting method throughout the fleet? If so, it certainly severely damages the overall cruise experience and I would have to think long and hard about taking another HAL cruise.
