The only impact Texas' liquor laws has on embarkation day is that Cheers doesn't take effect until the second day... alcohol is still flowing freely otherwise!

First let me say I don't know the answer, I'm only speculating... but I'd say if it's not labeled and not 'commercial' you can't bring it on board. The inspectors would have no way of determining if...

I agree with coevan- if it's not a reputable restaurant, not well managed or if you were a totally over-the-top obnoxious guest, I could see being a bit concerned about what happened to my meal. But...

What about the account screen on the TV in your cabin? Does it update regularly and correctly? I know not all ships have this feature, but where it does, I've always found it to be accurate and...

I'm so glad I didn't miss this- I've been waiting for this review, Jimbo!

I'm not getting Cheers because I don't drink enough & DH doesn't drink at all, but learning about the milkshakes onboard, I just realized I'm going to have to triple what I planned on spending...

I agree with a lot of the suggestions here to not overshare with one exception... make sure you give her enough guidance on what clothes to bring. If she's not aware of 'elegant night' or if you...

Better brush up your jokes- you may be the CD for your cruise LOL!

Like others, I mostly take cash for tips and shopping in ports. If I had to pay for excursions in cash then I'd know in advance how much I needed to bring.

So I typically bring about $100 in 1's...

I haven't been there yet but we're considering Hilton Rose Hall- it's close to the ship, reasonably priced and you can do it on your own... try resortforaday dot com. It will give you lots of options.

We did the same... I definitely didn't want connecting rooms but did want connecting balconies- we wanted the extra space to hang out together.

I've never slept on one but my friend did one time we cruised together... and said it was pretty hard. From what I've read you can ask your cabin steward to put a foam crate topper on it...

I booked our family cruise 15 months in advance... it's driving me crazy having to wait so long! If you're worried about what the future might hold, you should probably consider getting insurance.

as much as I move around in my sleep I'd drive the motion sensor crazy!

I would suggest an alternative opinion... there will be times when a scooter or wheelchair is just toobulky to maneuver. The knee scooter might be the perfect addition, for times like moving around...

Check out the art auction... we do, even though we haven't bought anything from them in 20 years! But it's really fun to hear the descriptions of the pieces and see other cruisers get excited about...

Ugh... I don't do math on vacation!

I'll just follow your other suggestion to set an overall limit... if he blows it, oh well! But at 9 YO he's already pretty mindful of money (his own, at least-...

This is great advice indeed. We are taking our 10 YO grandson on his first cruise on Vista next year and he insists he's not going to the 'stupid babysitting club'. I told him the price for riding...

Thanks for the clarification- Kinko's didn't make a lot of sense to me, but then, you never know!

Why do you think this feature will end with Vista & Horizon? Too much space taken up for theater?...

This is the first I've heard of this... but very interesting!

Do you have to go to Kinkos in person or can you also buy then online? Do you buy a specific time for a specific movie? If so, how...

I can't speak for Uber or Lyft, but the collection process at the cruiseport in Galveston is pretty organized, but sometimes a bit slow. They tend to hold cars to let the shuttles in first which...

Steakhouse

Know what experienced foodie cruisers do first when they set sail? They make a reservation at the Carnival Steakhouse...

I'm not getting into the middle of this spat, but I do have a point and one question...

IN MY OPINION (note the all caps!) the 'begging' for tips has been pretty much eliminated by the auto-tips....

OOPS! LOL- I hope your wife isn't on these boards or bedtime tonight be a tad uncomfortable!

Ah- good point about the allergies... however the other post from Jimbo is worth investigating, that dining that first night may all be YTD due to the sailaway time. If you've coordinated your...
