I haven't been to Poseidon, but I have visited Nogombo thermal baths on Ischia. From what I can see on the website/internet they look to be similar venues. I was not on a cruise but was staying in...

I should turn off roaming and ALSO be in airplane mode.

OP here.

thanks for all of your suggestions and comments. I guess the best thing for me to do in the future is look at the carrier when I turn my phone on. If it says Cellular at Sea, then I...

I love the Grandeur.. I've sailed her twice, but it was some time ago. Does she still have all the great artwork on the walls (bulkheads!!!;p) Seems like most ships now have modern stuff that I...
Surprise $117 cell phone charge--How to Avoid in Future?
We found that our cell phone bill was $117 higher than usual, so we called our provider (AT&T) and they said that was the amount charged them by RCCL Cellular at Sea. We've cruised a lot with Royal...

We just used Uber to get to/from Hobby (HOU) airport to Galveston port. The price was $44 to go from the airport to Galveston when we arrived fairly late Sunday night (the night before the cruise). ...
plane2port--Maybe I Could Do a Credit Card Tour?
Really this has nothing to do with credit cards. You basically are doing a bike tour but you don't carry a lot of heavy equipment. Just your "credit card."

plane2port--What Happened to My Virtual Cruise Life?
You may remember my little thought experiment My Virtual Cruise Life--where I was wondering if it was possible to do a series of back-to-back Med cruises taking advantage of last-minute prices.

plane2port--How I Bombed My Blog Back to the Stone Age
Hello, its been awhile since I posted here on cruisecritic. There are two reasons for this.

1. I was doing a review of my cruise on Empress of the Seas and the post was removed. I had put it on...

My thoughts exactly. That sounds like a perfect time to go. You see the same sites but with fewer people to get in your way. You would also probably get better service in the cafes/restaurants too.

Thanks for the great in depth review. We just got off the Empress but I'm thinking of booking this cruise for the late fall (when it cools down a couple of degrees down there!)

Are your required to be on a tour to enter the country, or can you get off the ship and explore on your own?

Following along with you and very interested not only in the Cuba portion but also interested in your take on the Empress in general. We were getting off the ship as you were getting on (we did the...

plane2port--Using Cruise Critic Forums for Cruise Planning
I know this is basic stuff for most of you here. However I often see people asking about parking and what to do in ports in the cruise line forums.

Many of those that are new to cruising and to...
