    Threatening to leave Carnival? No you won't!

    I'm not brand loyal to any one cruise line. price and itineraries are what drives me to a cruise. But I will Say this; if I could only pick 1 cruise line to cruise on for the rest of my life ( no other ) I'd pick Celebrity mainly because of thier smoking policy.

    Miracle smoke

    OP, Most cruise company's have similar smoking policies. If you are looking for a more strict smoking policy take a look at Celebrity.

    Anyone ever dump 10K in a casino?

    I don't know if you'd call this guy a high roller or just a idiot.... I was playing craps ( like i always do when the wifey ain't around, she hates it and make me play 3 card poker) anyways Its a up and down game, no one winning, no one loseing... this guy walks up to the table plops down 2k and says "No ten" dealer says "bet" now the guy with the dice sees this and just shakes his head ( as I was doing) about the time the dealers get the chips in the don't 10 ( there was 2 maybe 3 rolls before the chips got on the 10, with the counting and all) the shooter rolls a HARD ten !!!! much to the delite of the shooter who bet the hardways......Me I just shook my head as he left.... after he was gone the shooter said " I knew i was gonna make the 10 as soon as the guy bet the hard ten" LOL The wife and I have lost as much as 5k on a casino but it was over 5-6 days. and we have won a few times and broke even a few times.... 1 time we was at sams town LV, and were haveing a really bad run of things and were down to our last 200. and still had 2 days to go. I had us playing keno ( very slow game and small bets) needless to say we hit a 7 spot for 7k. on a quick pick no less LOL.... Then went ona small wining streak we won 500 at bingo (her idea to play) 1k at a dollor slot and $1500 at $25 BJ ended up staying 2 extra days comeing home with $8700 I know we should have left as scheduled... instead of giving some of it back. This past summer we did a quicky cruise on RCCL out of port canaveral with my bother ( 149. for a 4 day to nassau) we didn't do very well, brother spent his alotted casino money the 1st night. wifey lost some and just wasn't feeling it.... last sea day after dinner I said I was going to the casino and play a little I was feeling something.... they followed, everthing was full except the craps table. So I took $40 out and started I was two away from shooting so just made a line bet and a come bet, I wanted to throw the dice. I was down to $15 when the dice got to the next to me. I didn't see how I could throw the dice so, I just layed it all on the line, to make a long story short he threw the dice for 35 minutes and I walked away with $1500, the other at the table never increased thier bet and most left with only a couple hundred lol

    Opinions Regarding Celebrity vs. RCI

    The smoking policy is reason enough to NOT sail RCCL IMHO

    the worst food I've had in my life on NCL

    1 cent worth (govt got the other penny) :mad: In my limited cruising experience I found the food on RCCL to be far worse than NCL's. and I'm not talking the specialty restaurants. I'm not a foodie in anyway but do know about food having been in the rest. bus. for over 20 years. and maybe, just maybe the OP is like me not into all the fancy style food most cruise lines prepare, and thats why she was discusted. All it takes in a little "fancy" sauce over a meat to ruin it for me. Just give me a steak cooked right with little if any thing on it and I'm a happy man. I'm a keep it simple type person, so all that fancy style food really don't bowl me over. I could never go to a french rest....( the thought of eating escargot make me gag ) just not my stlye. now if thats what you like GREAT just not me. So, perhaps the OP is somwhat like me..... OP, sorry you had a bad experience. I hope you find the right cruise line for you, whether it's NCL or not.... As for me I just wish 1 of the cruise lines would have a quality buffet like many in Las Vegas. simple great food served simply I might have over spent my 1 cent......:eek:

    Liquor Taken!

    Now that Obama care passed I think they will want more than the other penny :mad: ... But that's a differant discusion for another web site..:rolleyes: I so do like this thread.... some of you are tooooo funny... and some need to maybe try decaf..... and some to "get a life" :eek: LMAO..... Like I stated before.... what 1 person smuggles on board is NON of OUR business..... BTW OP thanks for the info, I hope you had a great cruise and on your next cruise to find a way to get BOTH bottles on..... If that's what you want ;) ... as for me.... its non of my business :D

    Liquor Taken!

    All I want to know is who get all that confiscated booze.....:D I have heard about some wild parties the crew have :eek: Joking aside.... To each his own I say... The cruise lines all know this is going on and if they really want to stop it completely they could. Whether they inforce the rules to the letter or whatever. they could total stop it. But seeings how they seem to only partly enforce the rules, people will continue to smuggle. And I believe it's NONE of my business.:D but I do wonder if the ones that talk about obeying the rules ever speed.... hummmmmm :eek: Just my 1 cent worth ( govt got the other 1 cent :mad:)
