Don't know if he still works for RCCL, but we had the BEST waiter on our Vision of the Seas cruise in 2003. His name was Daniel (from Romania)....and he made us laugh so much every night! He was...

We bought our tickets at Fanueil Hall and then took the T to the duck tour at the Museum of Science. There was always someone to ask at the T about which way to go, etc., and it was only a few stops...

I hear you on this one! I went to the spa for the first time on our past cruise....NEVER AGAIN! How expensive! (But it's just TOO easy to hand over your SeaPass card and deal with it later!) :-)

We just sailed on the Explorer a few weeks ago. You'll love it! :) The first night some people still didn't have luggage, so it was pretty casual. I'm sure a lot of people came to dinner with what...

I believe that is what he said on the disembarkation day during the question/answer session on the last day of our cruise. If I'm not mistaken, I think he said he has 2 months off.

Everybody has their own taste & preference. My husband & I have done only two cruises in the past - one with RCCI and one with Carnival. We did not enjoy Carnival at all compared to RCCI and will...

And, I have a follow-up questions, how far is the LL Bean outlet from where the ship docks (I'm on the Explorer of the Seas on 7/3/08)?

My hubby wanted to do this....but I think I'd prefer the other boat ride that is just sight-seeing! I don't know if I could handle being soak & wet!! It looks like loads of fun though--so we may...

We're also looking for some kayaking here. Since we're only in the port from 11-5, it would have to be a shorter one (no lobster bake is fine with me) and relatively close to the pier.

I didn't see anyone carding on the ship when we cruised a few weeks ago. In fact, this is what made my husband and I avoid the dance club after the first few nights.

If they have a comedian by the name of David Sayh on the cruise, take my advice and SKIP IT!! He is just NOT funny and no one laughs at his jokes. It kind of made me feel bad--lots of people...

Hi fellow Pittsburgher!!
We JUST got back yesterday from New York--we drove to the pier in about 6 hours--NO PROBLEMS at all. It was actually a lot easier & smoother than I anticipated it to be. ...
