TC, you may have missed it, but there was indeed some "lounger saving" going on for the Mariner Amazon cruise. Our suite was located on deck 10 forward, and each morning we walked up the stairs to...

Will echo KK's comment. Availability of "all" the MDR entrees in the Lido will vary by ship. On our two HAL cruises last year (Amsterdam and Zuiderdam), I noticed that some entrees were not...

Your parents are going to have a great time!

Not to be repetitive, but also agree that these are our favorite Neptune Suite perks:

Agree! If you've already been to Berlin, or otherwise just choose to stay in the area, both Warnemunde and Rostock (easy and close) both have lots to offer.

I will echo what some others have suggested... if you have never been to Berlin and don't have any immediate plans to go back, then take the day excursion to Berlin. It will be a long day, but to...

Taking brief clips is OK, IMO. What I don't like is when someone takes extended or continuous videos. It is distracting for others, especially if you are sitting right behind the person taking the...

When we were in Brazilian waters and the tax was in effect, Mariner staff clearly communicated (in Passages, and also in daily announcements) when the tax went into effect, and when it stopped. ...

We carry a photocopy of our passport if it is not specifically required. Don't want to risk having it taken, as well as wanting to avoid the extra time required to obtain a replacement while...

This is good to know, thanks. I really prefer to use my own, comfortable earbuds whenever possible.

I will also suggest the Mexican Butterfly. They usually serve it up, but I started getting mine on-the-rocks, which I preferred. It comes with a salted rim, which of course you can decline if you...

We've seen this in the NL several times as well, and they were not Japanese. :)

Agree with the other posters, fine to dress casually for breakfast in the PG... sandals and flip flops included.

Wes, we were on the Mariner's Amazon sailing, and the Tritones Duo was indeed onboard. The current performers in the group are Janos and Svetlana (think I got it right). Elisabeta was not in the...

The one time we had an attempted pick pocket was at the train station at Versailles, outside of Paris. And, the ironic thing is that there were posters all throughout the station warning people...

Those booked on the future Amazon trips are rightly concerned after many of these reports. I joined this thread because we have just returned from a very similar Amazon cruise, but on Regent. Heat...

Uber and Lyft do indeed take passengers to the Port. Just make sure you know your terminal, and that the driver drops you at the correct terminal. We took Lyft from an airport hotel to the Port...

We always carry our cruise cards in one of the little credit-card type wallets we've accumulated on various cruise lines. Using a lanyard is not for us... among other reasons, it reminds me too much...
