I was surprised to read that senior Regent management has known about the slippery tile situation outside La Veranda for a long time yet passengers continue to slip, fall & injure themselves. They...

I think it has something to do with the War of 1812.

The ship stores are run by a contractor. I would write Celebrity about your experience with the name of the shop, date & time. This feedback will be useful in evaluating the contractor's performance.

Currency fluctuations rarely go in a straight line and the Euro's path will be up and down. Overall, it will likely continue declining (and some analysts think it may reach parity with the US $$) but...

I believe the Markeys (husband & wife CD/ACD team) have also moved to Azamara.

The big difference for Eric will be more administrative duties on a larger ship and that is what his pay will be based on, not his entertainment value. CDs on the really large ships can make $250K or...

I wouldn't be concerned about something so far in the future. Worse that would happen is that Azamara would substitute another port for Bangkok. The violence is very localized and may be winding down.

Lord/Seas-How can going to a larger ship with potentially more duties and a better salary be a "downward" step? I'm afraid you are confusing your personal cruise line preferences with a career move...

Take it from someone who has made the leap, it really is possible to have a wonderful vacation without being on a cruise ship.

Azamara seems to be pulling in quite a few senior Seabourn staff. I suspect they are offering significant pay increases in doing so. Plus possible promotions onto Celebrity, with the potential for...

I meant that people's habits change over time. If Regent's single supplements are consistently "too high" most singles would simply start looking elsewhere and probably find another cruise line or...

Once a company runs off a particular market segment (singles in this case) it's very hard to get them back if economic conditions worsen.

Don't write off Naples. Most of the treasures from Pompeii are actually in the archeological museum in Naples. And the world's best pizza is in Naples.

Nice of you to offer, Emeraldroses. The CC "editor" who was originally going to do this seems to have disappeared. See if you can get some shots of the PH Suite. That is one many posters are most...

Maybe some individuals are being ignored for reasons other than the beverage card. In any event, report bad service to the beverage manager rather than stewing about it.

Still waiting for the promised report & pictures from the CC Editor. Or the few previous posts all there is?

From the title of this thread onward I've been amazed at how few people seem to understand how a business, and specifically a cruise line, goes about making a profit. Instead, most comments revolve...

I haven't had 6 1/2 hours of sleep in a very long time. Sounds wonderful to me!

Is Eric a career cruise entertainer? If not, he may have decided that he had reached the time to broaden his horizons if he ever was going to. I don't think many talented people see cruise work as a...

Those of us who fly a lot see inventory management on steroids with the airlines. Pricing will change for flights many times a day, even many time an hour, as the IM computers spin out prices trying...

A vendor that offered legitimate art tours in various ports as well as auctions might be an interesting addition. But not anymore of the PW-type scams, please.

"Compensation" for the noise? I doubt it since the deck plans clearly show the cafe above this suite.

Things are very strange, complicated & in flux with this "in between" sector of the cruise industry. It's neither "fish nor fowl." At some point, despite protestations to the contrary, Oceania will...

I agree with Host Andy on many points except with regard to Mercury & Century. I don't see how these large, mass cruising ships would fit into the Azamara concept of small ship, boutique cruising. I...
