  1. On HAL, they have Billboard Onboard. It's a dual piano venue (not "dueling", "duel", as in 2 pianos). They alternate playing and often, accompany each other during the other player's turn. I've not actually been to a dueling piano venue, but I don't think I'd like it. The dual piano venue with really just a piano bar style venue with two piano players. More the style I prefer.
  2. I agree. That is not a "production show". While what usually is offered on cruise lines as production shows are often not all that great, I appreciate the singing & dancing involved in such shows. I miss them.
  3. That may be. But it's not allowed. From the DCL website regarding what's allowed or not: the following items are restricted for safety reasons and should not be brought on board. Electric irons and Steamers (all ships offer self-service laundry facilities equipped with irons and ironing boards) Extension cords, power strips and surge protectors https://disneycruise.disney.go.com/faq/prohibited-items/list/ Don't be surprised if such items are removed from your luggage before being delivered to your room.
  4. In my experience, DCL does not offer post cruise excursions to the airport on any of their itineraries.
  5. This belongs on the Roll Call forum. https://boards.cruisecritic.com/forum/20-roll-calls/
  6. Although that situation is not the same. OP is asking if they can take The Kdam cruise SD to Vancouver, then take the Vancouver/Seattle cruise on the Oosterdam. Not the same as being on a cruise, getting off mid-cruise (well, not really getting off, but taking clothes off and returning with different clothes), and then getting off at the end of the cruise in the same port.
  7. There's no specific "beverages must be carried onboard" statement on the HAL site. But, IMO, the intent is clear by requiring wine to be hand carried onboard. Although, there is a thread currently running where someone posted an email they received from HAL stating that all beverages must be carried onboard.
  8. Not correct. It's where a passenger got on and got off the SAME ship, regardless of how many separate cruises were done to do that. You can do a Seattle/Vancouver on one ship, move to a different ship and do a Vancouver/San Diego cruise with no violation of the PVSA.
  9. I rather imagine that poster has already completed his/her cruise, since it was asked almost 2 years ago.
  10. Maybe ask over on the Princess forum? https://boards.cruisecritic.com/forum/119-princess-cruises/
  11. I really doubt that anyone's come up with a search engine that can search all cruiselines by room category and/or per day rate. I usually just start with a search by itinerary.
  12. Vantage is a river cruise company. The River cruise forum is where you'll find any discussion of them. Most river cruise companies don't have cruises with as many people as ocean cruises, so all river cruises are there: https://boards.cruisecritic.com/forum/115-river-cruising/ Yes, I know they're launching a larger ocean going ship, but it's only one, from Hong Kong and it's not cruising until 2021.
  13. For ice packs when traveling, I just use a ziploc bag wrapped in a washcloth (or towel, or my handy-dandy bandana I always have).
