We will be back on Serenade in two days for the repositioning cruise out of Boston. It and her sister Radiance class ships (Jewel, Brilliance and Radiance) are among our favorite ships in the RCI...

If you email Royal Caribbean with a request for information about the entertainment scheduled for your Freedom cruise, they should respond with that information which usually includes the identity of...

When we were on Anthem earlier this year, they were selling popcorn on the Esplanade one evening.

And you are doing them a such great favor in the event that they are diabetic or have some sort of food allergy, or are concerned about their weight or eating healthy? Time to rethink your...

We've gone to Blue Baie beach the past few times that we have been to Curacao and it fits your requirements very well. Beautiful beach, good food (especially the fries) and drink, plenty of...

you should realize that, technically at least, hurricane season extends from June 1 until November 30th,(and Mother Nature doesn't feel bound to observe those dates) so you will be limiting your...

We loved Kakao Beach near Orient Beach the last two times we were in St. Maarten. Our son inlaw who said that he is not a beach person, claimed that Kakao Beach had changed his mind and he would...

New Brunswick and Nova Scotia are hardly the "frozen tundra" and temperatures at this time of year are more likely to be 70 to 80 degrees, a sweatshirt and jeans should suffice and dressing in layers...

9078 0n Radiance class ships is one of our favorite staterooms and we have found that the fire doors are closed at some point in the evening and this dramatically reduces the degree of noise...

We just completed our third Alaskan cruise tour (one with Princess and two with Royal Caribbean). On our latest, on Radiance of the Seas, my wife and I were the only Pinnacles on board, and on a...

Three pieces - breast, thigh, and leg so there was a combo of white and dark meat, all of which was delicious as was the crispy battered skin. We had no immediate plans so a half hour wait for the...

Not true although I can think of at least one whom I wouldn't care to be seated with. Just because one doesn't choose the inflexibility of traditional dining it is unfair to ascribe sinister motives...

A tired old canard that doesn't explain the increasing popularity of my time dining. It is the flexibility that MTD gives your schedule and nothing about MTD negates anyone's desire to sit with...

Not to worry. Despite rebuttals from several posters, some posters will continue to post their biased views even when they conflict with reality.
Have yet to see any indication that they even read...

We stayed at the Renaissance prior to our Azamara cruise and being able to get into our room early morning after a night flight from Boston was decidedly a plus. Location was convenient- short cab...

On sea days the slots are frequently operational in the morning and between 9 and 11am you can accrue double points. Table games usually open a bit later. Tightness of the slots seems to vary from...

Any time we have experienced a medical evacuation from a cruise ship, and it has happened at least twice on TAs that we were on, the copter hovered over the ship while a crew member and a gurney were...

That cabin has a very small and odd shaped balcony. I would take another cabin if something else was available.

What sort of "thing" is that? Sounds like something Mrs. Astor would have said.:)

That may have been your experience but is contrary to ours. We have found very personable and able servers in the My Time Dining rooms on a variety of ships and the flexibility of dining hours far...

While you may save significantly by doing a land tour on your own, don't disregard the value of having a dedicated escort and the convenience of having all the details(lodging, transportation,...

IMO, no trip to Alaska is complete without a land tour accompanying your cruise. We have done both with Princess and Royal Caribbean and both were very good, but again, IMO, the RCI cruise tour...

We stayed at the Renaissance (a Marriott property) which was located near Las Ramblas and near some Gaudi properties. We arrived on an early morning flight and was able to check in and access our...

Aruba would be my first choice for good(sandy) beaches (either Eagle or Palm) but if you want a good beach in Curaçao, take a taxi to Blue Baie beach where they offer a sandy beach (unlike some of...

Just be careful, as colors fade and stuff shrinks. i would only use it for socks, underwear and t shirts that are light colored, as a red t shirt turned pink on us. They also seem to dry in very...
