I'm glad you "think" so. Many of us who have responded that we wouldn't do it are talking from experience and not just "thinking" about it. As I said in my previous post, I had a direct flight that...

Not something I would do or recommend. We have never sailed out of San Juan but we have friends who did. They were flying out the day before from DTW on Spirit. They got to the airport only to...

The ocean. No cooking, no cleaning, no driving and packing/unpacking to see multiple places. The ocean. Entertainment, restaurants, bars, activities all within walking distance. The ocean. The...

Actually the OP was asking about Carnival, not Celebrity. Carnival does not require a jacket or tie in their dress code on Elegant night so no need for the OP to worry about them enforcing a dress...

working on a cruise ship
That is one of the reasons my DD is looking more into this as a viable option for a few years before she starts teaching. It would be a way for her to continue to dance (while she is young and...

When you do see Americans working on a ship though, they are usually in the entertainment field.

Thanks for those links. My DD(21) just told us this week that she was seriously thinking of becoming a cruise ship dancer for a few contracts (or more if she likes it) after getting her eduction...

My DH no longer wears a tie or jacket on Carnival for Elegant nights. Dress pants and a button down shirt are the most dressed up he gets now days.

Just a home base. If a hurricane were coming, I'd be using that flexibility I commented on and be getting out of there long before it hit and be visiting with someone well out of its path.

As DH and I are inching closer to retirement we have had many discussions planning our future. This was one that just didn't stick with us. While we love cruising, we also love land vacations. We...

You can fit a lounger on the Angled Balcony on the Escape. That is my preference....but I am not a Spa person like OP's wife is.

Every year at Christmas I would by my kids new card games. We pack a couple packs every time we go on a family vacation, even now when they are adults. UNO was always our go to favorite. Others...

Well the Carnival Dream is our favorite Carnival ship to date and the NCL Escape is our favorite NCL ship to date. We liked them both so much we have booked their sister ships in the future. We are...

My Son has a collection like this. He keeps his sail and sign card and displays it next to the ship model. I pick up T-shirts on the ship and some small pieces of jewelry either on the ship or at...

I had to laugh when I read this one. We have friends who we took our first 2 cruises with on Disney. Since then they have become loyal to Royal. We have yet to try Royal but have tried Carnival,...

This isn't so simple for everyone. If I only had 2 bottle of pills I probably would do the same. However I don't have that luxury and need to pack 5 prescriptions (1 large pill of which I need to...
