I was born and raised in Alaska (I'm a third generation). There are a lot of things to do in each port and since I've been numerous times, I always seem to take advantage of a different excursion.

They may have meant a cruise some time ago. My sister and I sailed from Acapulco to San Juan, PR (11-day Panama Canal cruise) in November 1998. Back when they used to sail in/out of Acapulco.

There was an older woman on one of our Caribbean cruises who would lay out in the sun all day. I'm shuddering at the memory - she was half dark, dark brown and half bright pink/red. Her skin would...

Hands down I vote for June over August. You can almost always bank on great weather in June!

I guess I'm not quite clear on how you're needing help. Choosing towns to visit? Things to do? Is there a choice you're trying to make between a couple of different land tours?

My husband and I did the Stone Island shore ex in November 2016. We have been to Mexico many times and know what to expect, but I must say we were disappointed with this excursion. You board a...

I was born and raised in Anchorage and am very familiar with the city. I'd recommend staying downtown if you want to do some fun things. The hotels in midtown are fine if you're going to rent a...

Why would you be sinking to spell it their way? Is the American way of spelling it somehow crass, uncouth or offensive?

The more we cruise the more particular we get about where we want to be. Our choices aren't necessarily based on the proximity to laundry and elevators, but instead how we felt on different decks....

Thank you for this excellent advice. NASA is definitely on our must-see list. We would enjoy the science museum and art museum, but we'll take the traffic into consideration. Thanks for helping me...

So flying into Hobby is probably the better idea, correct? That is if someone can get good flight times and prices.

Thanks for this information! I'm starting my research on hotels for pre and post night stays and it's difficult right now finding info on Houston as I think everyone is used to Galveston. It may...
