As a born and bread resident of Florida, it always crack me up about "fresh squeezed OJ"

For my time dining we always get 2 tops. One cruise, we sat at a large table each night. Since each time we had a different group of people, we ended up having the same conversation each night. ...

Umm, why?

I don't fit in their age group target, but based on my research it sounds like we would probably like the trips.

This is not true.

Some countries may require you to have a passport that doesn't expire until 6 months after you initially enter THEIR country.

For United States citizens, you can leave the...

Actually not very old news. They first applied to one or two ship earlier this year, then a few months later added a few more ships. This now seems to apply it fleetwide which is new news.

Definitely look at the third party providers Host Clearea provided.

They do offer "cancel for any reason". You will need to buy it within a couple of weeks of booking the cruise and it can be...

I remember Shipshape stuff. In my younger days, it actually got me out of my cabin early to participate in the walks etc, to earn the ship shape dollars. This was after a night of partying.

I just can't imagine eating steak every single night, seven days straight, no matter how good. I like more a variety, even if some of the food is not the best I have ever tasted of its time.

Actually your incorrect. They may stop in P.R. to disembark passengers if the passengers so choose (I am guessing for local P.R. residents who are on the current cruise). Otherwise passengers can...

I am guessing they are trying to do a short term docking for local P.R. residents that embarked in San Juan can disembark if they so choose.

I am also confused, when airlines waive their change of flight fees it means that YOU can reschedule/choose a new destination without having to pay their normal penalty fees. It doesn't make since...

Sarcasm is very hard to "read" in typed medium. I have a very sarcastic sense of humor, when I convey it online I always start with "sarcasm on" and then "sarcasm off". emoji's are sometime hard to...

If you are a non-Florida resident, there is no waiting period for a marriage license to be issued in the state of Florida. After that all you need is a notary public and a witness. If you are a...

I guess soon is a relative term. If she was dry-docked in 2014, then I am guessing her next dry dock will be in 2019. Way to far to speculate what changes may be made at this point of time.

I park at the terminal. I like the convenience of dropping off our luggage, parking our car in the garage at an parking slot of my choosing and then having a short walk back to the terminal....

I would recommend either utilizing a TA or calling RCCL directly. After doing a couple of B2B's one with a cabin transfer and one staying in the same, I much prefer staying in the same cabin.

TSA

Ships that stop in Key West just left a US port, so having that type of staffing is not needed. Much the same reason the first stop from US ports on the Eastern Caribbean run is St Thomas

We did the Freedom Med cruise in May.

We booked a combination Amalfi Coast/Pompeii tour through the cruse line. It was the highlight tour of the cruise. We had a great tour guide.

We have done both. To us they are both equal except for Cats/Mama Mia. And for me that is not a deciding factor as I don't like either Cats or Mama Mia (I have seen both as touring broadway...

I would suggest she or boyfriend call the C&A society to verify her status using just her C&A number. I book most of our vacations including cruises, it came to my attention that my wife had just...

The Marigot market has been open every time our ship has been in port, this has been mid-week. For our last few cruises we take a taxi to Marigot for the market and the restaurants.
