Sounds so familiar! It is exactly the same here in Finland. You just do not talk to people you don't already know, and there is absolutely no need to even get to know any new people. Oh, we...

Well, I think that the best option would be to entertain your daughter between courses and get your food with the others. I believe that the waiters are totally busy with their other tables as well,...

This is very confusing!

In my country, if the invitation sais "white tie", you CAN wear a dark suit but NOT a tuxedo (if you do not want to wear the tails). Tuxedo is considered less formal in...

The hand shaking part was very good to know! In my country, it is almost a rule to shake hands with new people when introducing yourself or otherwise you are thought to be impolite, and I would have...

I haven't come across with any weird and over-sized carry-ons. I myself am against the restrictions. I have no idea, how I am going to manage 13 hours flying without my water bottle (I drink a lot,...

On the last day of the cruise, you get the tip vouchers delivered to your room together with envelopes. Then you give those personally to the persons in question. Very simple!
Soda card
Once again, because I couldn't find an answer to my questions..

How large is the coke mug / how much liquid does it take? I understood that Coke, Diet Coke and juices are included in the soda...

I have worn gloves only when the dress code is white tie, and never with formal attire.

Two years ago on Explorer of the Seas we did use our cell phones throughout the cruise. It was very convenient, as we had to call our hotel to change our reservation, because our ship was going to be...

I love Moët & Chandon Brut Impérial!

I was disappointed at our last cruise, when the champagne promised in the romance package wasn't champagne, but just sparkling wine. I think it's just...

I will be 17 weeks pregnant on our next cruise and I am sure I will not fit into any of my old formal dresses. I just bought a simple a-line dress, which is one size larger than I normally wear, so...

:eek: 10 pairs of shoes? If I did that, it would probably take my whole suitcase and the weight limit also! :D Being crazy about shoes, it is not easy to leave most of my precious ones home, but I...

It would be really nice to get to see what there is in C&A Society web pages, especially the member forum. But no, the pages don't work for me, even though I am enrolled and everything. "These online...

Thanks for the info, I made my husband join in too. We joined through the website, it was very convenient and needed just the sail date of the previous cruise.

We made cell calls on Explorer Of The Seas throughout the cruise, no matter if in port or sailing. No problems with that, but I suppose it has something to do with our foreign operators, because we...
Crown & Anchor membership
I have a silly question to which I could not find an answer to.. Is it enough to have one C&A membership number per reservation? I mean, if the membership is under my name, can my husband, who is...

We just packed a (plastic) bottle of vodka among other things in the luggage. No problem there.

We had a similar situation too! Due to Jeanne, we were spendin an extra-day onboard, and of course everyone was trying to call and reschedule flights etc. It was so easy just to switch on one's cell...

Here are my formal dresses, the second one being not-so-formal. :D

Ok then, I believe you, you must have a different thing from us. Our ATM-cards do not work anywhere else than in our own country. Only credit cards are good for using ATMs abroad, in the U.S. and in...

:eek: A belt bag is an absolute no-no! Does somebody really still use them? :rolleyes: Anyway, I had a backpack with me when going ashore and a beach bag when going to pool deck. Otherwise, I didn't...

In the first place, I don't actually understand the whole tipping thing (they do get a salary, and have chosen their jobs), and I would never even think of tipping extra on a cruise ship. I just the...

The only way to withdraw cash from the ATM abroad is to use the credit card, not national ATM-cards. In shops in Europe, Visa and MasterCard are the best accepted, and at least Visa doesn't take...

On the last night of our cruise my husband had his cell phone with him in the dining room. It was not for calling purposes, but only to see how the ship was going around in circles (the compass, you...

My husband wore his own dark suit, because tux is not commonly used in our country.
