Only looked briefly but hasn't Adonia got quite a few balconies? ships like Oriana & OV had few balconies & that caused them to be too expensive. I reckon it cost quite a bit to run a ship whatever...

Quite sure I have been away thanks. Three days at the Hilton Metropole, part showing, part socialising (mostly socialising to be honest!)

I don't think it should be a "no children policy" as we are talking about someone's holiday, but I also strongly feel that the formal dining room is not a place for children...ok if they are at a...

We usually get our currency onboard, rates are usually reasonable, it's convenient, it goes on your account & they take it back if you don't need it.

You can buy a package for your cabin but I am not aware of one for the bars, there is no problem I am aware of bringing drinks of any sort onboard.

I wouldn't necessarily bother about a dinner suit/Tuxedo for a weekender if you don't have one, dark suit & tie will be fine.

Agree about de snakes!
I know places like the boatyard are an easy way to have a fun day but if people do this at every port they don't see much. It's their holiday & can do as they wish of course.

Some drivers do have "arrangements" with vendors at beaches, the main one was the wrongly named "Blue Monkey"

I bet you can still go in "for lunch" & use the beach by paying the BDS$ 25, I don't recommend the ''back entrance'' though... bit precarious!

I think the wildlife reserve is worth an hour or so, you will only see monkeys later in the day as they "go out for the day." My view is it is little more than a petting zoo, you could include it on...

We go on different cruise lines, in fact our next is on Eclipse....WE KNOW all about the tips & WE adhere to the customs, but the thing I am mainly trying to get over is a heck of a lot won't...

That goes with what I have been told then, I see what they mean but it would be nice for people who want a look at a ship could do, even if they are existing/future customers.

If you do get a car beware that there are people stopping tourists cars to offer help then demand money, it has started to get nasty too, especially up in the Cherrrytree hill area.

Waterlily, thanks for taking the time to explain, but it is very difficult to grasp that in this day & age a major international Company like a cruise line could, & be allowed to operate such an...

Must be me...we never really want anything that I would call exceptional, seldom see the room steward, & the dining waiters just take the order & bring the food. We give the tips we are told to/asked...

To get in touch with others on your cruise, see the "roll call'' section, the other stuff it would be better to ask specific questions here.

I would say that the unwritten rule must be if the Machine has finished then empty it.
