  1. We are looking at taking a 14 night trip around Cape Horn and would like advice as to which of the mega ships we should take.  We are considering the Diamond Princess, the NCL Star, and HAL Westerdam.  They are similarly priced and the itineraries are nearly identical. Any suggestions as to which one wins out would be appreciated. I believe that the Westerdam has a covered pool which may be a plus on cold and rainy days.  

  2. We (4 adults) will be sailing on the Celebrity Summit on 1/15/20 arriving in St. Kitts at 9:00 am / departing at 6:00 pm. We are debating between a 4 hour group tour of both islands followed by a few hours at the beach or renting a car to tour St. Kitts followed by beach time at the Marriott.  The second option is cheaper and allows for more time at the beach, but we would miss out on seeing Nevis.  Any feedback is greatly appreciated. 


  3. We received a 5 dinner SDP for our transatlantic cruise on the Pearl as a booking incentive.   I just tried to make reservations and see that Cagney’s, Le Bistro, and La Cocina all indicate that pricing is “a la carte”.  Only Moderno and Teppanyaki list $0 in the pricing.  They are all listed under the SDP options.  Can someone please explain how this works? Thank you!

  4. We  are in Cannes on 10/16/19 on the Norwegian Pearl and looking to rent a car for the day to Eze and St Paul de Vence.  We have been to both before, but it has been several years. We have an option of picking up the car in either Cannes or Antibes ...which is much cheaper!  We have heard that Antibes is a great place to visit, but we are wondering if the logistics of getting there is worth the cost savings and time. 

  5. We had a bungalow over the New Years Holiday.  We did not read our letter until the night before the Coco Cay stop, so there were very few choices left and we ended up in the second row.  That said, we really enjoyed it, but did not use it as much as we thought we would.  The beach was very unattractive during low tide with large patches of sea weed, so we went over to the area near the cabanas to swim and play beach games.  There were plenty of chairs available over there, so would likely just save the money next time.  You ordered your food in advance and they delivered it “take out fashion” at the time you requested.  The tram dropped us off near our bungalow, so minimal walking for your mother, particularly if you have one near the restrooms.

  6. We are traveling on the Mariner 12/31 with our 3 children and their SOs.  I was hoping for an internet free vacation and more family time since we now live in different cities, but my DH thinks that he needs it and the rest will follow suit .  I missed the Cyber Monday specials, so am I better off to wait until I get on board or has anyone experienced a last minute deal or a Holiday special?  Also, can we get a 4 device package and  assign one party in each cabin a login?

  7. It states in their policy that you can bring 2 bottles of wine / cabin on board with you to drink in your cabin.  They also state that any additional bottles will be held by them and returned to your cabin on the last day of sailing.  Does anyone know approximately what time that will be?  In other words, are we able to consume it the last night?

  8. I keep reading about Black Friday specials. We are cruising 12/31/18 - 1/4/19 on the Mariner. Is it reasonable to wait to see if there are any deals for on board activities or shore excursions that typically are available as a Black Friday special or should we book these activities as they become available 90 days prior to sailing?

  9. We are a group of six, one with limited mobility. We are tentatively planning to rent a car for part of the day. What are the must see places? How is the parking near downtown if we want to spend a portion of our day there?:cool::cool:
