No, never been to N.Y. As I said earlier, we love our sea days and this particular cruise will be to finish off our planned holiday which will consist of 5-6 weeks of driving and fitting as much in...

We also love our sea days (cruised for 18 nights from Honolulu with only 5 ports). This will also be the end of our holiday after a 5-6 weeks road trip so looking for some relaxation. I have my heart...

I have no desire to cruise on those huge ships. I was worried that Radiance was going to be too big but she wasn't:)

Thanks everyone for the replies.

I kind of have my heart set on sailing out of New York. We're used to sailing out of Sydney Harbour (which is absolutely beautiful) and I hear that there aren't too many harbours in the world that...

Thoughts on Norwegian Gem
Hi everyone, I live in Australia and we are planning a trip to US next year, around Aug/Sept/Oct. We want to finish of with a cruise out of NY that goes to St Maarten and St Thomas. I can only find...

I love The Pearl and also loved Gemma and Will (you do know they are an item??:) ). Glad you enjoyed it. The buffet on The Pearl isn't The Pantry. They didn't put The Pantry on The Pearl due to lack...

Our 3 RCI cruises have had muster out on deck and to me they are a complete waste of time. Unless you're in the front row, you can't see or hear a thing. When they did the roll call, anyone could've...

It could be that they also have them on Facebook and most people tend to use that. I used to live on these boards but rarely come on now due to the numerous cruising pages on Facebook that I take...

I am seriously looking at this cruise. I LOVE the itinerary ( we did the Samoan Secrets cruise back in 2009), always said I'd like to go back to Apia. Just a shame it's from Brisbane when we live in...

We just had the same issue on our recent Radiance cruise. I couldn't believe how many people wore shorts & thongs to dinner even though there was a sign at the door stating these weren't allowed. And...

We did B2B cruises on Pacific Jewel back in 2010 and came across a great waitress in Connexions. In 2012, we were on Pacific Pearl and was walking past a bar the first morning and heard a voice call...

I was shocked. The first night is always casual on any cruise as not everyone has their bags, second night was formal. Third night, lining up to go in and there were two girls directly in front of...

I think I read somewhere that it was a kid that did that.

We've done a few 3 dayers now and people always dress up on formal night and smart casual on other nights. The one thing that surprised me on our recent Radiance cruise was the dress at dinner. Apart...

That is the case for the Royal Caribbean ships but not Celebrity. We did 3 nights on Voyager & Solstice in Jan and was able to buy a drinks package for Solstice but not Voyager:)

We just cruised Honolulu to Sydney on Radiance and my husband did the all access tour. It was $150 and he said it was well worth it. He booked whilst on board and was put on a waitlist and they ended...

I did a 3 nighter on each of these ships back in January. As you are an older couple cruising with no kids, I would go Celebrity Solstice. She is an absolutely beautiful ship. Voyager didn't do a lot...

This is why I don't get it. What I have googled says you need to go into International Waters to open the Casino:confused:

Thanks, but I still don't REALLY get it. Nowhere on google can I see the words "overseas port". All I ever see is "must visit international waters" (for both). That's why I'm confused. Either i's...

Yes, you can definitely change a passenger, as long as one original passenger in that cabin remains. As to cost, probably depends on who you book through & the cruiseline. We did a name change on a...

When it comes to "international waters", can someone please explain to me the difference between being allowed to open the Casino and being allowed to sell duty free? I don't understand why they can...

We were on this cruise and also the Voyager the weekend before. On both occasions it appeared that all day Sunday we just drifted. Our first weekender on P&O, we anchored at Jervis Bay (water police...
