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.

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.
