Yes there is a fee....that's why you should bring the cash you will need. No sense in paying to access your own money. If you don't spend it, take it home and redeposit it.

If the ship is sinking, about 1/2 of the "lifeboats" will not be usable....more than likely....so you go to your muster station, and they will tell you where a functioning lifeboat might be. Ships...

They want you to be happy, and once folks get "settled" with their booking, things change. A small tip might be in order, but don't go overboard!

NO married woman's name matches her BC...they will look at the birth date. You don't need a marriage cert. to cruise.

We aim to arrive around 11:30...get onboard and head to the pool. I wear my swimsuit under my clothes, so I don't have to find someplace to change. You PAY for day 1..and boarding day IS day...

You could bring a blow up tub...it would only take a bit of water and she could splash at the pool deck. Empty it into a floor or shower drain...not onto the deck where it can get into the pools.

RCI, Carnival or NCL on their LARGER, NEWER ships is what you'll want to look for...newer ships have all the "bells and whistles" Princess, Celebrity and HAL won't have much for teens.

Yes..it totally depends on the ship and the CABIN #.....some obstructions do obstruct....many don't at all. Like a ladder that is visible, but you can see through! It's not really what I consider...

An adult needs 1 oz (or a shot glass) full every 2 hours...more if you "towel" off. Even "waterproof" sunscreen isn't towel proof! Most bottles are 12 oz or so....so figure it out.
