I agree with everything Janeykul says. The cabins were sub par (regular balcony) and the beds were awful!

Wallie: what is the reason you would not sail from Houston? I was going to consider a Princess Cruise from Houston, since we can drive there.

This is a truly wonderful article. I had to wipe my eyes from tears several times. I do have faith that miracles happen.
Dogs are great companions…..Chester has the best.

I did that tour a year ago, and getting into and out of the dugout is NOT for those with any sort of balance issue. I am able bodied but am in my 70's and it was a real challenge for me. The guide...

Queen's Grill is the highest classification of room accommodations, a lovely suite. You eat in a separate dining room, and get dressed formal when eating there.

No picture. I can tell you about it...I found a small vintage hat made of black fabric about the size of a small salad plate. I glued several little half wine bottles along with streamers,...

We really enjoyed the QM2, and now we are tempted to do another voyage. The only issue would be the smoking.

Jayhawk….Rock Chalk!

The suite change should come around the middle of April 2015, according to one post.
I am waiting to book though, until I hear some definite info.

I always take the cash option instead of OBC. Once we did not use all OBC, and to get our cash from casino had to give a percentage to X.

Thanks Arno for starting this thread. So many memories! Our first cruise was on The Song of Norway in 76, and now the rest is history! (54 cruises later) We tried several lines and when we went on...

I agree with jhans24 and gek. Ships are beautiful, but food and entertainment not up to Celebrity, Princess, or RCCL. I would never book again. Some of the staff seemed rude at times. We did a b2b in...

I am a ZeNi…half way. And that's probably where I will stay.

I use (in addition to hand washing) a product called Soapopular. It contains benzaalkonium chloride. Non alcohol. Literature on the web says it may be good for virus, and Noro.
It is not sold in the...

We ate in the buffet, Qsine, Normandy, MDR , and Blu on the Summit. The Buffet was very good for dinner, as we usually ate there using the Made to Order steak venue. It was a nice change from the...

Luggage Valet: since it was not really a guarantee for our recent voyage, I decided to use Luggage Forward instead. The cost was considerably more but worth it to us. I just added this cost into the...

The buffet has greatly improved, as we ate there frequently on our 14 day Canada/New England voyage in September. There is a made to order section aft (where the sandwich bar is for lunch), serving...
Nice dinner in buffet
On our recent Summit Canada/New England voyage we ate at the buffet frequently. The first night, especially, we wanted to be outside during sail-awy. Then the second night we ate in the MDR Select....
