As someone who's been disabled since the age of 2, after a bout with polio, I have experienced just about everything with regards to tours on cruises. The number one problem is that cruise lines use...

Sorry. The replacement is Punta Cana and St Kitts.
Itinerary Changes
Just received an adjusted itinerary for our Jan 3 Riviera cruise. San Juan and St Martin have been replaced by Antigua and St Kitts.

We ship our luggage to the port for every cruise, and UPS is terrible with ruining bags. But since we started to shrink wrap our bags, we've not had any damage or filthy bags.

I'm a full time scooter user and I've been on nearly every cruise line, and not one has offered this service you mention. By any chance, are YOU a scooter user, or is someone in your family a...

Be careful in all cities, but be aware of a newer tactic happening in London. Our former exchange student who lives in North London, says roving gangs on mopeds are attacking people right on the...

Breyers is selling a form of ice cream called non-dairy dessert. The carton still says Ice Cream, but if you look at the small print, it says Non-dairy frozen dessert. Food companies do this kind...

We've done four Vista suite cruises on Riviera, all on deck 8. Square footage wise, the deck 8 suites are the largest but have the smallest balcony. The deck 9 Vistas are the smallest interior...

We've been on board for two Olympics and Celebrity didn't show anything. I asked why and they said they didn't want to pay the broadcast fees.

We've been in the PH on nearly every Celebrity ship and the wifi isn't stronger there. The Alexa could connect, BUT, every time the signal got weak, it disconnected Alexa. For me, it wasn't worth...

Are All Three Owner's Suites On Riviera The Same
I know deck plans can be confusing, so I was wondering if the Owners Suites on Riviera are the same. On one set of deck plans I saw, it appears the the suite on deck 9 is larger than the ones on...

Just read an article in the London Times that spoke of horrendous wait times for Immigration in many, if not most, European airports. It was reported that an EasyJet group were in queues for as long...

Is this a travel agency? Because if it is, it's against the terms of service on Cruise Critic to talk about travel agencies or travel agents. After Googling, it's not a cruise ship, but I think it...

I've cruised out of FLL more times than I can count and I've always used the local taxi company. When leaving the terminal, go to the taxi stand and request an accessible taxi to your hotel. When...

A note about keeping balcony doors open and sleeping on the balcony.

We were recently on a cruise where our neighbors kept their balcony door open. Not only did the temperature in our cabin ruse...

Honestly, it's not fair to compare Crystal to Celebrity. Celebrity is a mass market line while Crystal is luxury. You can't possibly compare a ship with under 1000 to a ship with 2900. You can't...

This is all due to lifeboat capacity. Your cabins are probably part of a lifeboat that's already at capacity, thus you cannot add any more persons. This is an issue with all cruise lines, not just...

MSC has programs for those under age 3, but you must remain with the child, and it's only for a couple of hours a day. A non trained child cannot go into any pool or hot tub----not even using swim...

Somethings not right here. I've been cruising as a disabled solo for 20 years and I've never, ever paid more for an accessible cabin---and I've been on more than 90 cruises. Are you sure you're...

We were on Celebrity Summit, a 7 day cruise, in June and there were more than 400 kids on board. People come from all over the US and Canada to cruise on Summit, not just NY and NJ families. And,...

It's always someone else's fault. Like the woman on another board who got angry at her TA for not informing her that she couldn't cruise if she was more than 24 weeks pregnant. The woman was 26...

PoppyandNana, after taking more than 90 cruises all over the world, the only time I have taken my passport off the ship is in Russia, where it's required. Many cruise lines take, and keep, your...

It's very important that his cruise documents, his airline tickets have the exact mane as it appears on which ever document he uses to prove his citizenship, be it a birth certificate or passport. ...

People bring bottled water on board using the technique you mentioned, but I've not heard of anyone bringing a case of soft drinks in cans on board and using a luggage tag. Those things can get...
