I wear whatever I wear at home for the same type of weather. There is little need for something you'll only wear on a cruise. You do NOT need to "step it up"....I'm sure you're perfectly fine. ...

If it's before final payment, the existing cruiser will need to "make up the difference". If it's AFTER final payment (no refund period) that cancelling person loses their money and you will have a...

You will have to go to the entertainment level to see the entertainment. The opening near your cabin is elevator/stairway foyer area. There are no chairs...no seats, no real view.

We never use ATM's whether at home or on a trip. We bring the cash we might need...and our credit card takes care of the rest. I refuse to pay a fee to access my own freaking money!

This has been happening a lot lately. You'll be in a JS...no worries!

They should be a 'no-show" since they are past the refundable stage. The cabin is paid for...the ship doesn't really care if ANY of you show up!

YOU won't be able to access your cabin until 1pm or so, unless you buy FTTF. In your carry on, bring that which you must have before luggage is delivered, and anything of value....jewelry,...

Tipping is done at the END of the cruise, on the last evening. They expect their tips then. Tipping before service is provided feels like a "bribe".

Just be nice to your attendant and tip...

Yes, there are places like Cafe Promenade or Solarium Cafe...and others....just depends what they're called on YOUR ship. The names vary and so do the number of included eating spots!

You don't actually have to have it "in hand"...no worries. If you've done the online registration, they have your info!

Always have the deck plan in front of you when booking, so you can SEE which cabin you're paying for!

Check the deck plans for each of the ships you're considering. Some ships have smaller cabins than others....Carnival typically has larger STANDARD cabins than RCI....of course, if you get a...

You can bring prepackaged food back to the ship and off again. You cannot take fresh foods OFF the ship..no produce, plants, meats, cheeses, fruits, etc....

Not a fan of "powdered" creamers...not sure what's in them, but they are sticky and sweet. The ship carries 1/2 and 1/2, milks of all fat contents, and flavored creamers, too.

The "sand" in the Caribbean isn't the same sand you might be used to here in the States....our sand is from rocks....very fine to coarse....in the Caribbean, it's mostly crushed shell/coral....not so...

Disney clubs aren't like other cruise line clubs...they aren't as "structured", and kids LIKE structure! Give another line a try! Betting your kids will have a blast!

I don't want to be on my last option on my last day....not sure what the deal is with "packing light"! as long as it fits in the suitcase, and I can carry it....what's the big deal? I like having...

7542 is more forward and is a connecting cabin...but you really aren't over the performance theater...only the movie theater. It's not large and shouldn't cause any noise.

The "production" shows seldom have a "plot"...mostly just random singing and dancing. Entertaining, if you enjoy that.

As far as the "chair hogs"...if I can't find a seat somewhere, I ask the...

Very lucky to get such a nice upgrade! I'm assuming you booked a suite GTY....so you did quite well!

If you are buying "by the can", they don't care how many you buy!

You shouldn't have any problem booking onboard, especially if you are early eaters. From 6:45 on, in can get booked, but not so much earlier.

As far as the prices go...they are subject to...

Credit cards don't place "holds" like debit cards do....you may see a "pending charge", but that drops off as soon and the charge is paid.

You shouldn't hear the noises from the centrum on the Starboard side of the ship too much. The big opening for stairs and elevators is on the port side...you have merely a doorway for any noise to...

You could always ask for 2 paper straws and switch out when one gets "mushy".
