On a cruise on Independence in the Med in 2009, my then 3-year old son collapsed with a seizure. We were on Deck 10 and the medical crew made it from the ship's hospital to our stateroom in less than...

I've only ever cruised in Europe, and I've never seen anyone grab food with their hands. If I have, I've forgotten it.

Yeah, except the person who missed the wit (me!) is British! I really need to learn to pay attention.

So, people who aren't European can't be disgusting in a buffet queue?
Sorry, missed that. Pass me the popcorn, please.

Hey, we're not all hopeless at queuing. The British are really good at it. :D

My daughter was only 10 the first time we cruised, and my son was a toddler, so they stuck with us. But when she was 12, we let her go off on her own (she made friends in the kids' club) but there...

Just popped over and read your post, and also your Princess cruises post too. I love your blog! We're vegetarians in our house, but we're dabbling in veganism (i.e., 3 out of 7 meals per week are...

You are a wonderful person.

We are booked on this same cruise next year, and I want as much information as I can get. Thank you.

I realise that this is a really old thread, but I'm booked on Rhapsody next year, and I'm excited about it, and avoiding other, more productive things I could be doing today.

Yes! Stop going to work and post the Cruise Compasses please. :D

This. The OP mentioned upthread that because it was booked as a package, UK regulations require some form of compensation, and this would be true if Rome were the outward or return point. It wasn't....

Agreed. I'm a massage therapist. I can't believe what they charge on ships for massage. I'd never have any clients if I charge what they charge!

We've only ever cruised Royal. I work in education so we are confined to school holidays for vacations, and we've come to accept that we have to pay more than someone who can go away in (for example)...

My daughter was 12 the first time we did a 14 night Med cruise, and 14 the second time. She was in the teen club constantly. They had lots of activities at all different times of the day. There...

This. There were no repeats during our 14 night cruises. My SIL, who loves Caesar salad, ordered it every night as her starter even though it was on the menu only once. They were more than happy...
No additional guests aged 9 through 12 allowed on sailing?
My family and I have been loyal Royal Caribbean cruisers for years, but recently their prices seem inflated and I am unwilling to pay. I've started looking at P&O and I'm interested in booking a...

I've done the Italian Med itinerary twice. It is very port intensive and if it's your first trip to Europe, you will probably want to do quite a lot of sightseeing.

In my experience, that terraced area is for all guests (we always get seats there and we've never booked a suite). There is another area for suite guests, up some stairs somewhere behind the sky bar.

It's my understanding that this only applies in Spanish waters, not the whole of the Med.

We did the Fjords from Southampton in May. The first and last days are sea days and in both instances, the North Sea was (surprisingly!) as flat as a mill pond.
