  1. Okay, I've never sailed on NCL before but do have several other cruises under my belt and I swear, I don't mean this to sound the way it is probably going to, but here goes.... Don't you have to sign for each drink they bring you? Can't you check your receipt to make sure you are paying for what you ordered? How could you not realize you are being charged for a souvenir glass? Again, I don't mean to be snarky, but now I am worried that I won't be getting receipts and signing for my drinks and if that is the case I am now very, very worried about how much $$$ I am going to spend on drinks on my upcoming cruise. Those little pieces of paper keep me in line. :rolleyes:
  2. Thank you for the review. Getting ready to leave in a few weeks on my first NCL cruise and appreciate hearing your thoughts.
  3. Thank you for your comparisons so far. I too am very much looking forward to hearing your impression on Camp Carnival and how it compares to RCCL.
  4. I've been on a Celebrity ship and watched the academy awards telecast live one evening; not only watched them, but there was a big party in one of the lounges during the telecast with games & prizes as well as waiters serving drinks. If they really wanted to do it, I'm sure they could figure out a way to make it happen.
  5. I admit, I used to be a Celebrity Snob. Then I had a little boy and suddenly, Carnival was the perfect line for my family. While each line has its positives and negatives, I always find way more good things then bad on any ship. Do I miss the Celebrity niceties? Sure I do; it is awfully nice to have a chilled towel when coming in from a long day of touring. Does my husband miss having to wear a suit and tie most nights for dinner? No way! Each of us has our own comfort zone. It took me a little while to get into the Carnival way of cruising, but after 2 cruises on Carnival with a third one in the planning stages, I know now that it isn't in any way worse then the other lines, it's just different. Put your fears to rest, I am sure you will have a great time. :)
  6. I am beginning to plan a group cruise to the caribbean for Feb or March 2011. We will have a large number of cruisers (i'm guessing at least 100). I am leaning to RCCL based on homeport location and internet availability (a big deal to us). I've been researching like crazy but wonder if anyone has any feedback on which cruiseline might be best for us. Oh, we don't need a lot of classroom space or anything, this is going to be a social cruise, not an educational one.
  7. Just a thought, buy the kids blindfolds/nightshades and have them put them on while in the tunnel. Then when you get to the port itself, do the big reveal. It will only be a few minutes and the anticipation would be awesome.
  8. Thank you all for your help!!! I'm all set now.
  9. You are awesome! Horizon, December 7, 2001, Eastern Caribbean out of Miami (I think) Millennium, Late October, 2002 -- not sure when we departed (I think it was FLL) but I know we were at sea over Halloween. Eastern Caribbean Galaxy, March 17, 2003 out of Baltimore; I know 3/23 we were in STT, because I got married that day :D thank you SO much!!!
  10. I figured it out! I'm going thru the member reviews here on cruise critic matching dates to itineraries. Yay!!!
  11. update: Just called Celebrity's Captain Club. They were very nice, although not very helpful. They can't tell me which islands we stopped at, only "eastern caribbean" or "repositioning", which I already know. I guess I can post to the individual lines groups here in the forums; I'm sure someone is bound to have kept old brochure books, right?
  12. This is actually to get a top secret government security clearance to get a job. Something tells me when I mention that I've been to Haiti that's going to delight them to no end. :o
  13. I'm stumped. I have a list of the cruises I've been on (see signature) and now I am trying to remember where we went of each of our cruises. I need to figure out this information in order to get a government security clearance. I obviously remember each port I've been to, but I forget exactly when I went where. My google-fu is weak and I'm having a tough time remembering which ships stopped at which ports. Does anyone know is there an online resource that keeps track of these sorts of things? Would I be able to call the cruise lines and ask them where these ships were sailing then? Thanks for your help! ~fly
