Hi Fred. Just got back from Mariner 3-26 to 4-02 and if I were you I would go to Paradise Beach in Cozumel and use the aqua park equipment there. It is exactly the same stuff as at Labadee, but...
Orlando Universal Studios Question
Hi,

We're spending a day at Universal Studios this Saturday before we cruise out of Port Canaveral on Sunday. I heard that you can purchase a "speed pass" that gets you priority lines for the...

I absoultely agree with this one - definitely would pay for a tour of the engine room, water treatment plant, kitchen, etc. I would LOVE that! :p

And I probably wouldn't pay for a non-smoking...

I've imposed a ban on myself to never discuss the "to bring an iron or not to bring an iron" issue on these boards again. So unfortunately I cannot give advice or my opinion on this issue!!...

Thanks for the Nair pros & cons. I think I'll just stick to tiny-shower-callisthenics (aka shaving). :p

Last time we were in St. Thomas we went to Coral World in the morning and Coki Beach for the afternoon, and we had a great time! Coral world isn't a huge, highly funded theme park like you might...

Do not take pictures in the Sistine Chapel!!!! It's considered disrespectful.

And just because other people are snapping photos all around you, doesn't mean its ok. I was there and didn't do...

I'm not American nor am I obese. And yes, while I'm on vacation, I like to spoil myself and do, eat, see, not see, whatever the heck I want without other people telling me whether I should or...

Does Nair really work and do a good job? Is it really smelly and does it give you a rash or irritation?

I'm such a chicken - never tried waxing, never tried Nair, just shaving.

guinness, please do post the response you get (if you get one)! I'd be most interested to see it.

Ok.

I asked whether anyone knew if any ships offered baggged lunches. I did not ask whether all of you thought that I should morally or otherwise want to bring lunch off the ship.

However I...

Thanks Yooper38, I didn't have the time to read through that whole "think you're a cruise expert" thread!! But this is a great idea, appreciate it. ;)

GMoney, when spending the day laying on a beach that may or may not have a place to buy lunch (and when it does its a greasy hamburger, not my idea of "local cuisine") I prefer to bring my own...
Bag Lunch on Port Days?
Wouldn't it be nice if you could grab a bagged lunch from Windjammer while you're there for breakfast, so you don't have to worry about finding a good quick lunch while in port? Especially at...

Its too bad that half this thread was hijacked with people arguing over the definition of sushi. Its an interesting thread otherwise.

Being from so far in-land I can't say I've ever tried good...

My sister took bedbugs home with her from Spain.

She never saw them but her boyfriend at the time, who spent a lot of nights sleeping on her couch, would wake up with big welts all over his neck...

Where the heck is Progresso??? :confused:

One guy's cruise experience is antectodal and you can't use one case against Carnival to say that all people would feel the same on all cruises. I'm...

Absolutely without a doubt, FLORENCE.

Pisa is ok, but pales in comparison to Florence. If you go to Pisa you'll take the obligatory photo shot of you "holding back" the leaning tower and that's...
