I don't recall ever having to HAVE sneakers while on a cruise. It might just be people prefer them or like to change it up to give their feet a break. I am a flip flops person - can do a whole week...

@[email protected] @snowmo Thanks for the info. We don't go until May so I have plenty of time to drive myself crazy about whether to bid or not ;)

There are 3 of us, DD sails free. I understand bids are per person - but are they per paying person or do 3rd/4th free passengers also count?

I don't drink alcohol or coffee, juice is ok once in a while. Water is fine but don't like it with food. My drink of choice is Diet Coke. Just like some people drink beer, wine or cocktails I drink...

If you meet one kid with autism you've met one kid with autism. It really depends on him, and what his parents are comfortable with. DD has autism, she is nonverbal, she likes other kids, has great...

Thanks for the suggestions. We want to stay in the historic area, we don't need a kitchen - no cooking while on vacation especially if we are only spending 2 days/ 1 night there. I booked 2 rooms at...

For Costa Maya we did the
Dzibanche tour. We loved it, the guide was informative and funny. It was a small group, we spent as much time as we wanted there. You have to walk to their office - if I...

Thanks! I was searching on Booking , Orbitz etc. Places seem to pop up one day and then are gone, then the next day they are back. Seems like they were mostly showing me the boutique hotels. I did...

We are planning on doing something similar in May right after our cruise. We disembark on May 5, so I thought we would rent a car and drive down that day. Then stay the night of the 5th and 6th,...

A few years ago I got the ones on the second link, in black and in blue. I then went on Amazon and got a couple of tankini tops that match both. I always felt a little weird walking around in a...

Last cruise we traveled with just carry-ons only. They measure 21 x 14.5 x 8. I get super paranoid about missing bags so we try to only travel with carry-ons. Loved being able to just walk off the...

You can see a photo of the room with the couch on the Carnival site. It is the stock photo but it is what our room looked like - except we did not have the coffee table and we had a second chair by...
