I agree with TBK and FlightMedic. Also, remember that there are only a little over 300 pax. Reservations are not a huge issue.

I think Bloody Mary's should be experienced ONCE. Food is good, but not exceptional. Decor is fun.

I would not skip a special diner or event on the PG for anything on shore.

Everything TBK said.

ESPECIALLY...you really need to arrive a day or two ahead of time to decompress, but you can spend a LOT of money in the resorts. Not just the room (or Bungalow), but the...

I look forward to it. Can you write a note to my wife saying that I need a new D5 before the trip? Of course, if I buy that I won't be able to cruise next year!:eek:

They only do the viewings while at anchor. The telescopes are large, low-tech Dobsonian style. They are very easy to use and lots of aperture for the $$

Sorry, but the Owners Suite is mine! :)

Just kidding. We are on deck four like always and happy to be there. On the PG, the best balcony is the pool deck. That is where you will find...

Just to repeat what has been said a few times before, consider sitting at a large table with other passengers. We have several life-long friends that we met during dinner on the Paul Gauguin.

I guess it is unanimous!

Book when you can and watch for fare reductions. We always go in June and July, but only because my wife and I are both college professors. I would probably go in...

Just keep in mind that the 'converter' is really just an 'adapter'. That is, it does not convert 220 to 110v, it only adapts one receptacle to another. Almost all devices have power bricks that will...

We did the included tour on our 1st sailing in 2001 and have skipped it ever since. Once and done.
