  1. Included as everyone states but we always leave a little something for the wait staff.
  2. We've also done both Princess and Celebrity a number of times. I'd go with Celebrity too. While the food and the service is good on Princess, we've found that the service is dramatically better on Celebrity while the food seems to be a few notches above. We also do a lot of specialty restaurants so we're not comparing apples to apples. That being said, Celebrity is your best option; IMHO. Have fun.
  3. Once was enough for me never to take advantage of that "deal". Blocked views and was noisy most of the time. No thanks!
  4. We're doing a 19 night TP in September and stopping in a few of the islands. Can't wait to see what type of answers you get guys.
  5. I use mine on longer trips and love them. Rolling isn't a problem because you actually get a lot more into the cubes than one would think. A couple of wrinkles here and there but who cares. Bought some for DH and he likes them too.
  6. Hi there guys. We had done the 8 hour tour sponsored by the ship and was very much worth it. As it was our first time in Cuba and one of the first cruises to go there, we wanted to get the lay of the land before we became adventurous. The people were wonderful, the food great and the 2 guides (very much eye candy actually 🙂 ) were very knowledgeable and spoke very clearly. Next time we'd like to do a different tour company but you'll have fun no matter which route you take.
  7. Today's the day; 🙂. Good luck with your embarkation and let the fun begin!!!!!
  8. Same for me too. It's been a blast and I've learned so much for our upcoming trip. Thank you everyone.
  9. We had seen the crew's quarters on a Princess cruise one time. Very small indeed. I remember equating the size to a larger home bathroom. Bunk beds, small locker area, desk and a compact bathroom. I give those folks credit on how they maneuver about and store "not a whole heck of a lot".
  10. Following along. Freedom OTS is one of my favorite ships and have traveled on her many times (alright only about 4 but.....). You're all going to have so much fun. Congrats to Joey on his graduation. Can't wait to read more of your adventures!
  11. Sorry about that. Just curious as to where you were going and where you're ending up now?
  12. We leave in September out of Hawaii for a TP and a B2B around NZ. I appreciated your candidness and your points of view.
  13. I too would love to hear about it all. We're doing the TP cruise in September and am excited beyond words. My one question is are there any "theme nights"? White party, Caribbean night; things like that so that I can pack appropriately. Thanks for doing this, have fun and will be anxiously following along.
  14. You can get quite a few under there but you might have to lift up the bed if they are too big. No biggie. In saying that, they keep extra blankets and sheets under there too so we just push them out of our way when storing stuff.
  15. I use CruiseMapper too. Great fun!!
