  1. We're leaving on the Triumph from New Orleans this weekend and aren't sure whether to book the Conch Train through Carnival or wait and book it directly with them once at Key West. Anybody know which would be better? Also, if booking through Carnival do they issue tickets for certain times or do you just catch the train when you can?
  2. Sailing on the Spirit Sunday 1/3 and we want to enjoy a good steak and lobster in a specialty restaurant, but we don't want to pick a night when we'd rather the menu in the open restaurants. We especially don't want to miss the lobster night which is usually on a formal night. Any help?
  3. We're on the Norwegian Spirit 1/3-1/10. Curious as to which "formal" night will include lobster in the two main dining rooms.
  4. Not sure how they'd schedule the dining for 7:00 p.m. sailing, but on sailing out of San Juan which usually left around 10:00 or 11:00 p.m., it would usually be open seating dining.
  5. We had cabin across from laundry on the Conquest one year. There was no problem until the last night - everyone was trying to do their laundry and holding loud conversations in the hall. After putting up with this until very late at night, a call to the purser got it shut down so we could sleep.

  7. 56 chevy cruise - we remember everything you mentioned and then some. WAXX radio was hilarious even after seeing it many times. ZydeDiverDC - no we weren't on any zydeco cruises.
  8. ZydeDiverDC - We sailed on the Enchanted Isle several times, including Nov. 1999. We really loved her and everybody on her. I Miss Enchanted Isle - We miss her too. We sailed the Isle several times but don't remember a Bobo Mike. We did get to know a waitress named Wendy and her husband also. The staff on that ship were the friendliest we've seen. We saw the ship several times while it was tied up and waiting to go to India and were very sad at the prospect of its destruction.
  9. In May on the Conquest we had friends with us and they had a couple aft cabins on Verandah deck right below Lido. They said on some nights it got a little noisy from people dragging chairs, etc. on the Lido Deck. I've also heard that some of the aft balconies can be hot.
  10. We also loved sailing on the Enchanted Isle, especially the service. We always had a waitress named Wendy. Her husband was the bar manager, Oliver. She too always knew what we drank as well as our cabin number. Many a Saturday we would spend at the Riverwalk and she would recognize us from the ship and would always ask when we'd be back. We have sailed with Dan Stapleton, but also the cruise director before him, Walter Elvy. Walter was the best cruise director we have ever had in all of our 30+ cruises. We often wonder whatever happened to Walter. The Enchanted Isle was docked close to our home while the company was in bankruptcy. It used to break our hearts to pass by and see it rusting away and would remember all the wonderful times and great people we met on the ship. There's alot to say about the smaller, older ships. What they lack in glitz they make up for in service.
