We toured with Joyce several years ago. It was great.

I wear a tux. It makes me feel like James Bond and I'm out with one of the Bond girls.

We cruise for several reasons:
It's a great value.
Fewer decisions
Less work
I can put my phone in the safe and have a great reason why I didn't answer calls on vacation.

Is the Solarium ages 16+ on the Allure?
Hoping so. We used it all of the time on the Oasis and it was a nice quiet place to enjoy breakfast or just a chair in the sun.

We were on the Oasis in early March on itinerary #1. Jamaica is great, if you get a tour. We went with Marvyn's Paradise Tours to Dunn's River Falls and Blue Hole. I would recommend it.

I like the warmer weather. I need 80*+ to be comfortable in short sleeves.
That said, I really liked our Alaska cruise.

I bring a tux but we drive to the terminal. I rented one when we went on an Alaska cruise, but that was in 2006. The Alaska cruise was much dressier overall than Caribbean cruises we have been on. ...

What percentage of the crew is prone to seasickness?
What measures do they take to prevent it?

I ask because I am fairly prone to motion sickness and take a Bonine before bed every night on a...

I would take the onbard credit. We have never spent more than $10 on beverages on a ship; except our first cruise when we bought the soda package and realized that we could have done without it.

Be sure to watch those points. They fall off after a while. I used the card and thought I was building up points for five years. It turns out, I was losing points faster than I was earning them. I...

There are some great tips on this board.
There were several mentions of clocks and alarm clocks early on. While this might be necessary for some folks, on many ships the phone has a clock and there...

Where is the spa shower on the Oasis?
My wife and I both worked out in the gym and neither of us could find it.

One thing that I do is travel/board in a sport coat, my heaviest trousers, and bulkiest shoes. Then they don't take up room in luggage and my sport coat isn't wrinkled. We still use a garment bag...

We used to bring a power strip and a hang up shoe bag (not on the list). We didn't bring either on our last couple of trips and didn't miss them. We really don't have anything to plug in except the...

Brother and SIL had same issue at MCO post cruise last weekend. Flying SW from MCO and couldn't check in until 4 hours prior. They had a 6:00 flight and arrived at MCO at noontime; two hours sitting...

We used Joyce in 2011. She was a great guide. We are going back this year and may use her again.

I am leaning more towards driving and staying an hour or two North of Maimi and doing the Port Parking. I think it gives me more options with fewer hassles.

Considering this same dilemma out of Charleston, SC for December. Leading toward the drive. Flights are expensive out of CHS and we just did the drive to Port Canaveral. I enjoy the drive, but need...

I stayed at the Radisson at the Port a couple of weeks ago. I was just under $300 for one night and parking/shuttle. I really didn't like it. I much prefer the Country Inn and Suites.

I was very disappointed with our stay at the Radisson. The rooms were small, dated, and overpriced. In their hate to get rooms ready, they did a very quick job of cleaning them and missed a lot.

Pass-o-guava on RCCL.
I remember it from my first couple of cruises, then it disappeared. I did get it when we visited Hawaii though.

I haven't been happy at any Days Inn. We used to stay at Country Inn and Suites. It's closed due to Irma now. We bit the bullet and decided to stay at the Radisson.
