Re: Queen Mary in Long Beach

I stayed on the Queen Mary over Labor Day weekend. Had an outside cabin that I paid $99 for one night and $109 for the other two. The cabin was very large--a bit worn but very functional. We only...

Re: Roll Call Nov. 5 Carnival Miracle

Two of us are joining you! Has anyone heard if there is a formal or semi-formal night? I understand we'll have to carry our own bags onto the ship so I don't want to have to drag along a garment...

Re: Unbelievable Co-workers

I disagree with pg's post. Sue's comment was insulting and she was rightly called out on it.

Re: Mediterranea Jan 30

Re: QE2 West bound


I remember reading about that offer. You have to be a Platinum cardholder and book your cruise through Platinum Travel Services to get the shipboard credit. Doing so, however, might not...

Re: Westerdam Deluxe Verandah Suite

Re: Celebrity Horizon

Sailed on the Horizon for a 10-nighter in March. It was our second time and we love the ship. Small, intimate, wonderful food and service; very friendly crew made us feel quite welcome. Great...

Re: Did anyone else think Alaska was boring?

I just got back from Alaska (Celebrity Mercury) and thought it was incredible. I've done most of my cruising in warm weather locations and wasn't sure Alaska would appeal to me but the scenery was...

Just Returned From Celebrity Mercury

Alaska was an awesome experience! Absolutely incredible scenery. And, again, Celebrity provided a great cruise.

We lucked out with perfect sunny, warm weather every day in port. So much for all...

A Must Read For Gay Cruisers

I started reading this book (a memoir) a few days ago and it is incredible. You have to check it out, especially if you are a fan of the old ocean liners from the days prior to today's megaships.

Re: Tux or suit on "dress night" ???

We always drag out tuxes along (we each have two--can't wear the same thing twice). Generally, we find only 25-30% of the men wear them on the moderately priced lines. On Celebrity, I'd say it's...
