We were on the same sailing and saw dolphins twice leaping and twirling and saw whales two different times. It all depends. We spent many hours everyday on the promenade and were lucky to be walking...

We just got back from an eleven night cruise on the Sunshine after three previous cruises on the Breeze and the Glory. We hands down prefer the American Table menu. It just goes to prove that...

I am very interested in the email you received about lifetime members receiving free e-tools. I reached my goal last month and couldn't see paying $14 a month just to be able to use e-tools. It took...

You can take a city bus from the Magnolia Bridge to downtown for $2.75. Check out King County Metro's website for schedules. We took the bus to Pier 91 with our luggage before and after our cruise...

I was on the Century in April and the Oosterdam last week so I feel I can help you out. The Century is an older ship than the Oosterdam and you notice it especially on the Promenade. That being...

you are right and I booked April 13th and not May as I said in my post. HAL answered my email and said because of contractual agreements they could only discuss this with my TA. Of course if they...

I see you are from Jacksonville. My husband and I live on Amelia Island and often find a one way rental car (each way) is cheaper than parking. We pick it up at JIA and my DH drops me and the...

My DH and I did the trans-atlantic crossing from Ft. Lauderdale to Barcelona last May and had great weather and calm seas. We were pleasantly surprised and it made us want to do the same cruise...

There absolutely is a naughty room on RCCL ships. I have been called to the room twice. Once was for booze and the other time was because of a coffee maker. They held the booze until the end of...

Just got off the Zuiderdam and the sign as we reboarded in St. Thomas said that liquor could not be taken to your cabin for consumption but that beer and wine were OK. Of course there was no on...
Crown Bay Shopping
We are sailing on the Zuiderdam Dec. 8th and assume we will be docking at Crown Bay while in St. Thomas. We haven't been at Crown Bay in three years and were wondering if any of the shops have opened...

More people dressed for the second formal night. Yes we wore togas but the majority did not. My husband wished he hadn't! The facilities were pretty much the same as all the terminals. It was a...

Mediterranea - the Good, the Bad and the Ugly
Just back from the 2/4 sailing and thought I would add my 2 cents worth. Please understand that these are only my observations and experiences so take them for what they are worth. My DH and I are 53...

Yes. We did back to back on the Liberty and the last night of the first cruise they delivered all the booze just in time for the second.
B2B The pros and cons
Last December my DH and I did a B2B on the Carnival Liberty. The first cruise was a 6 day Western followed by a 7 Day Eastern. Two weeks on a cruise:) . We stayed in the same cabin for both cruises...
