Very good! Yes, we have receipts too, such a hassle though. Glad you were fully reimbursed. In hindsight we should have taken the tux (evidence) and receipt and handled it that way.

We had to ask for a tux rental, they did do that but it was a cheap, poor fitting polyester tux. I was stunned when the Customer Service person said what she said about it not being a professional...

Problems on the Oosterdam
I will try to write a review of our Oosterdam 14 night Panama Canal cruise when I have caught up at home a little. I just want to warn everyone about some issues we had that happened with regards to...

We just got off Holland America's Oosterdam and I got this great shot of the Harmony, thought you might enjoy it here on the Royal Caribbean board.

As for the bathroom/shower situation, my husband works out every day on the ship. Especially on formal nights he gives me more room to get ready by taking a shower and shaving in the gym locker...

It depends on the port. Some ports I know it is more of a problem getting back to the ship, like in Panama because of traffic. Also, some places I just feel more comfortable and safe going on the...

I took them on my first cruise. They were very good, however they were geared towards Windows only and now I have a Mac.

Actually, we first tried HAL because they let you bring on your own wine (more than one per passenger and with no corkage fees)...now that they have changed that we first look at RCCL because we are...

Yes, we have flown in on embarkation day a few times, in fact we are doing it again in 14 days for our next cruise. The most nail biting time was when we flew with another couple, we were all on...

Haha! This reminded me of the cruise we took both sets of parents on years ago. They had never been on a ship, we thought we would just say, "Let's all meet in the main lobby." All four of them...

I print them and cover them with clear packing tape, then staple, I feel they are stronger and if they get wet the ink does not run.

The Caribbean will not be the same in my life time, very sad. So many of these people had so little to begin with, I hate to think of how difficult the struggle to rebuild will be for them.
