To be honest, I snore - loudly. My wife would be happy to have me 10 rows back on the other side of the plane. She may not want me next to her on a transatlantic flight. :)

As the main positives for Celebrity, good dining; all Balconies are ‘real’ overlooking the ocean; the common areas aren’t always full, and with lots of people walking through them; a relaxing...

We're almost as picky with airline seats as with cabin locations. In the case of CA I just wasn't clear on the logistics. Now I am - thanks. :)

This is optional, but I would tip the bartender $1-2, especially if you go to the same bar every night. This will get you remembered and when cruising solo it’s a nice touch.

Now that brings up a question I had only just begun considering. Just when/how are seat selections made in the CA scenario? I recall seeing something a while back that you booked the flight through...

We had our first X cruise on Silhouette this past March after the previous 3 on RCL. We both had the same conclusion that this was by far the most relaxing cruise we've had to date. I'm not...

We're booked for September, 2019, starting in Amsterdam and ending in Barcelona. Obviously we can't book airfare for that cruise yet. But last night I found the same cruise for 2018 in August. Just...

With the exception of the Paseos de la Princessa and Morro being closed (from wave damage not related to the hurricanes) Old San Juan was in pretty good shape in March. San Juan proper was good in...

The ambulance chaser representing him may be hoping that enough negative publicity will prompt the line to make an offer just to shut them up. But so far I've only seen a couple of stories so that...

We were on Silhouette in March and I do recall seeing what amounted to "Slippery when Wet" signs on upper decks. It didn't seriously register other than "Well yeah - any idiot would know that." ...

[quote=time4u2go;56066121]I think it's a bit late for that. They asked at around 1:00.

Given the title of the thread I expect there will be people looking to it for general information and not...

[quote=hubofhockey;56065736]The determination of negligence, under maritime law, primarily hinges on whether a "reasonably careful ship operator" likely would not have known about the hazard that...

This couple is of retirement age. I wonder how well they planned - or didn't.

We'll be on our first Reflection cruise next year. We rely heavily on CC reviews and these boards whenever we research a new ship or itinerary. We've never been steered wrong using that method. ...

We're in Charlotte. Charleston is one of our favorite cities. I'd love to be able to have a shorter drive but Carnival just doesn't appeal to us. Someday, maybe........

When was Celebrity in Charleston? The current terminal has been used for cruises for only about 5 years old - was there something before that for cruise ships?

[quote=Tapi;56030511]I keep hoping that any major cruise line will someday port out of Savannah. Jacksonville and Charleston have proven to be very successful for Carnival. Savannah would be the...

We took roughly the same route as you. The paseo was completely closed from massive waves that, we were told, happen every few years and are not related to the hurricanes - kind of a double whammy. ...

The warning about the party at The Sheraton pushes us more towards El Convento. Your breakfast at ChocoBar isn't just for breakfast anymore. I could live on that. Great pics, BTW. Well done.

As far as Norwegian goes we feel it is several notches below RCCL or Celebrity in all aspects and if you have any dislike of cigarette smoke avoid their Casino and a few other venues on board their...

[quote=Cyber Kat;56007700]I have no idea. [emoji16]. We had no sea days and were busy with excursions during the day. I never even made it to the spa.

We ate dinner around 7:00pm finished up...
