We were at Shipwreck last December. It is a small laidback rustic place. Food is good and drink.s are cold. If you want a fancy place there is Carambola. I walked up to it and it is plush, as in...

Good advise all around. One thing that wasn't covered was what happens if just your son's friends go? They are supposed to have an adult in their cabin. That can put a kink in your plans.

Welcome.

Late October thru December is a great time to do the Caribbean and you don't have to fly all the way to Florida. Galveston and New Orleans has some good 7-nighters to the western...

We stayed at the edge of Little Havana on our first Miami cruise. Loved the food but the people are not friendly and I would not stay there again. The only way that you would catch me walking...
Looks like it on Facebook and a google search.

We were at Ship Wreck last December and Discovery was closed. I walked from SW to Carambola and they were the only bars open on that section of beach.

We were at Shipwreck last December and I hiked up to Carambola. Discovery was closed then. Shipwreck and Carabola were the only ones open.

We will be there with at least 2 other couples. If the Serenade is like the Liberty it should be great. Check out the Roll Call Board. It has been dead and we need to liven it up.

We will be with you. Three retired couples. We did a 7 night on a sister ship, the Liberty of the Seas, and loved it. Hoping that the Serenade is as much fun. We hit a couple of these ports last...

You don't need it, until you need it. Three years ago my wife fell and fractured a vertebra two weeks before our booked cruise. Our trip insurance paid everything but a small booking fee. We got...

We have sailed RC three times and they had an Adult only pool and hot tubs. The best way to avoid kids that we have found is to sail in the winter, away holidays and take longer cruises. 7 nighters...

I would settle for a good band. The last one that I saw was Blood Power and that was several years ago. They had 7 or 8 man orchestras 15 years ago, but they are gone on the cheap ships that we...

You have cruise fees, port taxes, gratuities and excursions. Onboard extras would be Specialty restaurants, drinks, pictures and store purchases. We rarely spend over $200 onboard.

This.

I am old now, but I have not, nor, ever will let a 12 year old dictate what they will or will not do. That includes grandchildren now.

Never had a bad cruise. We have had rough seas, rain, canceled ports, long-g-g-g lines at embarkation when one of the cameras quit working and there was...

This is pretty much the same consensus that we have and we have sailed Carnival 11 times. I must say that the entertainment in the lounge on Norwegian was some of the best that we have had so far. ...

We have spent a lot of time on the Elation. Never saw many kids. They have a very good children's program and all of the parents and youngins that I have quizzed have all praised the staff for...

Not a big fan of GTY, but we have done it a few times. One trip we had a cabin under the formal dining room. Every morning around 2:00A.M. we had chairs and tables scraped and thumped above our...

The temps usually run 75-85 degrees up in the day. A light jacket and light rain gear have come in handy on a couple of our trips. Water temps in the 70's. Don't forget your sunscreen and...

We grabbed a cab at port and drove to Soufriere. Saw some nice vistas, the Pitons, and visited a volcano. Don't remember the company though. The roads are steep and winding so you might want a...

All I can say is Congratulations. I will take Bermuda over the Bahamas any day. Especially with the ship in port for 3 days. Go have some fun.

I concur with the price but if you have a driver like the last one that we had it will take about 10 minutes to get there. Our driver ran 90-100 mph in a taxi that was falling apart. Longest prayer...

We are with Yvonne. We get one every year in October and we usually cruise in November or December. When you get semi-over-the-hill you need to take every precaution.

Western Carib if you want to swim. We did the Bahamas in April and the water was colder than I care for. Cozumel will have water temps in the 70's, Belize and Honduras will be a little warmer.
