WOW! To each their own obviously. As much as we enjoy cruising (only ever been on NCL), I cannot fathom ever paying 15k for a week on a cruise ship - any cruise ship. It seems like cruising prices...

We are the Feb 24th sailing. I have sent him an email to see if he is still on board, since a couple of posts here indicate he is moving to the Bliss and may be on a well deserved break.

We have spent many cruises with Clarense and keep in touch occasionally. He has an amazing personality and does his absolute best to entertain passengers who frequent his bar. We spent one night,...

We usually prepay, however this time we probably won't. When you buy the cruise in Canadian dollars, the exchange rate is locked in. Our is about 35% I think. Since the exchange is so much lower now,...
Swimming areas at GSC
Hi there,

Just curious if the swimming areas (main beach and the entrance to the underwater sculpture garden) are rocky. Would water shoes be required? The only posts I could find were from a few...

We are in Falmouth as well next month. We were already considering just staying within the secured port area and I would think that this announcement, plus the additional ones from the UK and US,...

I decided to give it another try, but this time, rather than using the "Contact Us" section on the website, I used the email addresses listed directly on the site. I did receive a quick reply using...

FWIW - I've tried to contact liberty tours twice in the past couple of weeks and have not received any replies from them. I was trying to book their Blue Hole/River Tubing excursion. They get great...

Exactly the way we feel as well. We are Gold and will never reach platinum, but I haven't seen any real perk from this level.

We are doing an excursion with Fat Fish Adventures and there is reef snorkelling included as part of the package.
Not sure if I can post a link here, but it's very easy to find.
Thanks to both of you - great help!

Generic Jet Ski Question
We have a booking to Stingray City in Grand Cayman on a jetski tour. The operator only had a double ski left, so it will be two of us on a single ski.

I've ridden a single ski in Bermuda, and...

Perfect!

We are really looking forward to it. Another question - how far is the Hard Rock Cafe meeting place from the pier?

Thanks for the reply!!

We are flying from very snowy, Eastern Canada in February for our cruise. It leaves on Saturday afternoon, so we are actually flying in on Thursday LOL.

We aren't taking any chances :)
Escape B2 Angled Balconies
Hi there,

We have only been in the aft and B6 category balcony rooms on the Escape, but this year we decided to save a little and went with the B2 angled balcony.

Has anyone stayed in these? We...

We have always driven from Canada to Manchester, NH and stayed there the night before the cruise. Then it's a quick 40 minutes or so to the cruise port and we park in the garage at the terminal. I've...
Viewing Dining Reservations
Hi there,

I've booked three dining reservations for our February cruise - I think :)

I added them to the cart and did a checkout, but I cannot see them anywhere on my reservation. Does anyone...

Very interesting question on the SDP - what if they cannot get you into the restaurants? I wonder if that situation has ever been addressed? If you choose not to go, that's one thing, but if you make...

I'm not much of a conspiracy theorist, but it is very interesting when the revision was announced. I'm on the Escape on February 24 and still haven't received any update. Personally, I will cancel on...

Being from New Brunswick, I can safely say that it will be better than Winnipeg in February :D

All kidding aside though, If those ports are eventually confirmed by NCL, we would take a long look...
