Thanks for the info DeeDee.
I can bring the champgane and wine in my carry-on, correct? I wouldn't be against carrying a large box on board with me if they are OK with it too.
As for the laundry, $15 isn't bad. I was worried they wanted $5 for a t-shirt, $6/shorts, ect. $15/bag seems reasonable.
I'm glad to hear about the sandles - I bought two pair just for this cruise. I also agree with you on the shirt and buffet/lido area - shirts are a must when around food. Like you, I don't wan to see a hairy, fat gut near the food I'm abotu to eat.
If anyone can comment on the beer I would appreciate it!
