You may be able to, but just know that there are many other terms and conditions that are different between US and UK bookings, like there are no refunds for cancellations at any time, the DSC is...

While West Coast longshoremen make more than East Coast, here is a figure of $102,000 - $124,000 per year for a NYC longshoreman, on average:

It's not because you are in US waters the entire cruise, it is because you are in Hawaiian waters the entire cruise, and even then that's not entirely correct, as the ship is outside 12 miles most...

Different cruise lines have different ISM (International Safety Management) policies, and their insurance departments have different risk tolerances. So, some lines may allow dividers to be opened,...

Called up the plan for Black Falcon, and I was mistaken. The berths at the "cruise terminal" are berths #7,8,9. And the berths at the "cargo terminal" are #1,2 on the north side, #3 on the end, and...

Berth 1 is at the far end of the pier, so they are probably allowing for time to fight through the crowd at Berth 2 if there is another ship in.

They can certainly handle IV fluids, and should have the Calcium blockers like Cardizem (though it would be prudent to email special needs to get to their medical department and see for sure). ...

There is really only one terminal, there are two berths, one in front of the other, but its the same building.

Not sure why you would want to cut off the ground prong, or use a 3 to 2 prong adapter. Just because a device has a three prong plug does not mean it is surge protected, and the ground prong is...

Depends on what you are used to. Locals probably won't be wearing jackets, folks from Arizona likely would.

Two travel rules for NE (and the Maritimes):

1. Layers
2. Be prepared for anything

The outlets in the bathroom are separately fused for about 20-40 milliamps (0.02 - 0.04 amps) in order to limit any ground fault shock potential for an outlet in close proximity to water. In your...

That is not quite correct. While SCOTUS has ruled that foreign flag cruise ships do not have to adhere to all the requirements of the ADA (the ship's "internal policies and procedures" are exempt),...

The UPWADE device you linked to is surge protected, and unlike some devices, boldly states this and its quite respectable joule rating. Surge protectors are prohibited as dangerous, and are the...

And yet, better qualified epidemiologists than you, the CDC, don't feel that having changing tables in public restrooms on cruise ships are of significant risk to prohibit them. There is no...

I agree, but his modesty should nudge him to close it. Just kidding, by the way.

Irons and boards are available from the cabin steward for an hour or two. Steaming, using a steam dress form is available for a charge in the main laundry.

While undeniably cute, Bella needs to get her own thread, this is Bob's love fest.

Just know that the baby is not allowed in any pool, hot tub, or splash area, so you may want to avoid those areas while he/she is awake.
Way better view! :D

Bob IS da man. Fair winds and following seas, my friend. Happy cruising, I'm thinking of you as I stare out my window at the Marcus Hook Refinery in Philly.

Below cabins in that area will typically be crew cabins. There won't be any machinery near. You're not that far forward, but you may hear/feel the thrusters and or anchors when entering port, but...

Tip the "porters" or not, your decision, but know that they are not like skycaps at the airport, these are union longshoremen making six figure wages for less than 40 hour weeks.

Nope, unless you think that a contract where they can get paid without showing up for work is a tip.
