  1. DW and I did a cruise down east coast to the Bahamas this past March. I read many reviews, mostly positive and it lived up to the majority of the reviews. We prefer smaller ships without all the bells and whistles. We had a JS which gave us plenty of room and spent time in the hot tubs and pool. Never seemed crowded on any part of the ship. Shows were enjoyable and food though subjective, above average. Service and friendliness of crew and fellow passengers was top notch. We intend to book it again for the New England/Canada cruise TBD.
  2. DW and I could care less who the CD is. We go mainly for R&R and avoid most of the scheduled activities.
  3. DW loves this part, she knows it won't be long until we sail again.
  4. We had it offered this past March on the Grandeur. It was a great deal for us. It wasn't offered until we were closer to the sailing date, about 60 days out. My guess, it will be offered if they are trying to fill seats.
  5. We have a Promenada for our upcoming cruise on Adventure. We had friends who stayed in one of these cabins and loved it. We checked out their room and was surprised on the amount of room in it. We normally sail in a cabin with a balcony but we got a great price and it will put us in Diamond on our following cruise.
  6. We have done JS twice now and only select if it is competitive with a balcony, usually an 8-9 day cruise. It was mentioned a balcony plus an inside, if that is less than a JS, I'd snag that option.
  7. Bob, I always appreciate your candid advice.
  8. I appreciate the recent comments on the Adventure. We sail on her in Nov and will stay up to speed on current reviews. We only sailed on her once but overall it was a fun time for us.
  9. Sail on her in Nov so this is good to hear.
  10. Hoping all will be able to make a successful recovery.
  11. We only sailed on the Adventure once, have another booked this Nov. Our experience in the MDR was pretty good but the Windjammer food temp was cold by the time we got our plate to sitting down to eat. We heard the same from our sailing friends on the same cruise. Again, food is very subjective but cold food is still cold food.
  12. OK, with you so far, what's the next step to get the better pricing flying out of STL
  13. Friend, I'm looking at all the fares and my reference is what works best for DW and me based on the port we cruise out of. I consider the whole price to include baggage fees. SWA has been the best choice. I normally use Google flights to check other carriers as a baseline and even check the other carrier websites directly. I want to fly into an airport at a convenient time and not book a red eye or some other flight that may save a few $$ but is not convenient. From your screen name perhaps you work for another carrier or a very frequent flyer. If you broke the code on better pricing, I'm willing to listen. I'm only loyal to my wallet and not an airline. "Over".
