On most cruiselines, there is a muster every time there is a new passenger load. We did a cruise that started in Boston, but also picked up people in Ft Lauderdale. We had to attend two muster...

Well, I can't promise. I'm not a reviewer-type.

I think I've only ever done one sort of mini-review (one page) on one cruise in all my time here.

Wow, didn't think about that....imagine having to attend a muster drill every 2-3 days. Not my way of enjoying a cruise.

Vantage - China!
Well, in just a few hours we leave the house for our trip to China and Tibet. Not strictly a "river cruise", but we are traveling on the Yangtze River for 3 nights.

I don't know that it would be too big. It could be, however, more difficult to get around in the crowds. And, I'd worry about it getting a hole in it and winding up as a floppy horse.

You mean 2 each? Or one each for two of you?

I would think, if you ask for two of them (just for yourself), they would do it.

But, ask for them at the same time. One reason they ask you at...

When I lost my passport in Germany, it took 3 days for me to get a new one. And that was in the city where one of the consulates was, during the week, not summertime.

In our experience, the information as to whether we'd need our actual passport, or if another ID (such as a driver's license) would do in "tomorrow's port" was announced at the show the night before...

Just a note - while you may pre-pay the gratutities, they are not given to the people receiving them until the end of the cruise. So they don't know if they've been tipped or not until then.

Well, first it's not the Jones Act (that deals with cargo). It's the Passenger Vessel Services Act (PVSA). Yes, a cruise from Puerto Rico to St. Thomas would be legal. But, as noted, you'd have to...

I imagine it has a bit to do with the hurricane damaged islands, and what's going to actually be open.

Why, when I click on that button, 90% of the time does it take me to the first post (or some other random post) on the thread? Regardless that I've read that thread through multiple times.

Rugby is a brand name for meclizine. Meclizine is the generic. You can get it a WalMart for $6.93 (25mg 100 tablets).

While they can't "make" you do so, most travel agents have you sign an "opt out" paper if you decline insurance. That way they are covered if you don't have any and you should have gotten it.

I'm afraid we're not going to get any feedback from the OP on this. And she knows that, as it's her first (maybe only) post here on Cruise Critic.

If complaining to Passenger Services didn't produce a new mattress, I'd check out the sofa (if the room had one). Ask for an inflatable mattress to sleep on the floor. Or try sleeping on deck in a...

Well, it was more than "just inches". Those piers are typically at least 6-10 feet across at the end. And the Dream hit it pretty much square on.
