Absolutely agree that the liability restrictions are out the window now. My heart goes out to the people who suffered through this, lives lost and to the family and friends of those still missing....

It was also easy transport to the pier in Barcelona, very nice embarkation. I too, love Civitavecchia but, Rome is a good distance away....

Ours is probably kind of nutty but, we do ours before.....We watch every movie that has a cruise ship in it about a week before inlcuding Titanic! LOL!

Try squaremouth dot com. For the first time I purchased travel insurance as we were flying to Santiago 4 weeks after the earthquake. No matter what the conditions, this policy covered it, less than...

I loved your pictures Amy! I too, was quite taken with both Ushuaia and the Falklands and feel very lucky that were able to make both ports. We missed the glacier but, I am hopeful in the coming...

I also have fluorescent tie wraps that I use for flying. I have heard that many times even the TSA will cut off TSA approved locks. So, we tie wrap the bags when flying and lock them before we get to...

So funny Jane! I think Idylle is more of a heavier scent and I have been wearing it all winter! I just love it period! I will look for the above perfume. No, I haven't read Katy's blog, I will have...

I would choose the Inspiration. There is a lot for the whole family to do at GC and Cozumel. If it were just the 16 and 14 year old, I'd think you would be spending lots of time at the beaches....

Not if it's locked. :) Always, always, always lock my bag at the pier......If they want to see what's inside, I'd better be there.
Laurie, I am afraid I have to disagree with you on this one. They...

Good choice! LOL! NCL doesn't allow irons or steamers anymore. They will lend irons onboard.

I can only answer in reference to our cruise on the Sun. When entering by ship, the fee is much cheaper (it was $40 USD at the time) and it was paid by the ship. We received our exit visas the night...

We sailed the same itinerary in 2008. Wonderful cruise! We had an excellent cabin steward. He replaced the towels regardless of whether i put them on the rack or not. Always had ice. I will say that...

No, they don't allow travel irons. Very hot topic on this board! Yes, I have packed them numerous times. Last time was on NCL in 2008. I now choose to press my clothes beforehand and bundle pack....

Booking early gives you an advantage if there's a certain cabin you desire. With Carnival, the prices actually go up and stay up until shortly before sailing (in my experience). Our last one on the...

We used Victor Aballai with enaturchile. There were 10 of us and we had great service. The bus was comfortable, the guide's english was very good and he was very flexible with everything we wanted to...

Lovely photos Libby! I'd say that were all on the same page: layers are a must! :)
Sonomamist, do check the weather in advance for all your ports. I think this will help you best!! Yes, I agree...

Sorry, Kitty, I didn't know we were counting as I am at 42 and since I just came off the Legend and actually DID this, I guess it doesn't count as fact?
Since the OP is on the Legend and since I did...

GoldMoon: I found my lower rate on Carnival's website. At the time, we had made final payment and the promo said "new bookings only". I called Carnival and they graciously gave me the difference in...
Yes, you can get tender tickets with the ships tours
Not true to any of the posts above. On the morning of your tour, you will proceed directly to the lounge (it's usually the big show lounge) where the ships tours meet. If you are on an independent...

Here it is: I would do the Carnival! I have sailed them both many times but, the one thing I can say: Carnival is great for children, imo better than RCCL. I really enjoy Grand Cayman and there's...

We were there in what was typically considered "summer". The Horn can be unpredictable. I had a heavy outer coat (down), knit gloves, scarf and hat. While cumbersome, I was glad that I had them! I...

The T-pools are wonderful. I can't tell you what they put in them but, there are all sorts of minerals, very warm and relaxing. Saunas are available and free. The pools, can't recall the closing...

Too many to mention! Right now, I am wearing Idylle by Guerlain (lots of compliments on this), Flora by Gucci, Green Tea by Bulgari and Narcisse by Chloe. I savor my Flower by Kenzo and love...

Three posts, all the same.........I am thinking it but, won't say it...........Which line do you work for?

Same here. We received OBC when we booked on board for our upcoming cruise. Then, NCL "canceled" our cruise (they changed the itinerary and shortened the cruise from 19 days to 15) and gave us more...
