Re: Who Did You Book Your Carnival Cruise Through?

I've booked a couple of times through a known website and have received the best service and the lowest prices—at least compared to what Carnival was offering. For my next cruise in Dec. I decided...

Booking directly through Carnival *$&#^!!!

We have taken a couple of cruises this year booked through an Internet service but for our next cruise in Dec. I decided to book directly with Carnival. So far, I have had nothing but...

Re: Calling all Upgrades!

I'm not sure if I understand your statement that you had no option to choose a deck or cabin with a GTY--that is what a GTY is all about. You are guaranteed an inside or outside cabin, but you don't...

NCL Sea--Promenade Deck

I just found out our GTY outside on the NCL Sea (5/08) would be on the Promenade deck, #6013. After looking at the deck layout it appears there is a jogging track outside our window. Is that going...

Re: Shopping in Cozumel

If you are lucky enough to dock at the downtown pier, Punta Langosta, you won't need a taxi--there is a new shopping mall right at the pier. From there you can roam around to the other shops that...

Re: How many suitcases do you need?

My rule of thumb is that the longer the vacation, the less I need. Of course the opposite is also true--the shorter the vacation, the more I need. My reasoning is that if I am going away for, lets...

Re: The Truth about Tipping

Hey Dan...

(It sounds more like you were giving bribes than tips.)

To a large extent I do agree with you--I have my own (small) construction company and I agree that most costs will be passed...

Re: The Truth about Tipping

Dan40

Why would the price for a cruise go from less than $100 a day to $400-$2000 a day just because tipping is not allowed?

Why does tipping have to be a service fee? Why not make the...

Re: The Truth about Tipping

Hi Nanette...

That's my question--why should we tip just because someone does his job--change sheets, entertain, clean dishes...? Why doesn't the employer pay a fair salary so the customer won't...

Re: The Truth about Tipping

People don't tip because they get good service, they tip because it is expected. If this weren’t true then we would tip everyone, in every capacity, whenever a good job was done. As it is, we are...

Trip Cancellation Insurance?

I'm curious what everyone thinks about trip cancellation insurance. My wife always wants me to buy it, but I don't think it is a good value. I'm sure if you ever used it you would think it was...

Re: travel agent in hometown or booking online, ? which?

Are there still travel agents? LOL

Re: Passport Necessary

You can get a passport through a special service in as little as one day if you are willing to pay about $300. Or, you can go through normal channels and get an "expedited" delivery in 2 weeks for...

Re: all these cruise sale ads

I clicked on all the pop-up ads here before booking our latest cruise a few days ago but the sites weren't as good, IMO, as Travelocity. Also, Travelocity has the $150 Master Card cash-back that I...

Re: bringing alcohol on the ship

First you have to decide if it is worth it to “sneak” booze on board. Are you interested in saving a few dollars and enjoying the convenience of having a drink in your cabin at the risk of roasting...

Re: Soda card

The reality is that the gamblers and drinkers are subsidizing the kids, non-gamblers, and tea-totallers. We keep the fares reasonable because of what we lose on the tables and spend in the bars.

I booked a cruise with Travelocity on the Norwegian Sea, May 8th, to go to Grand Cayman, Cozumel, and Roatan. However, the NCL website shows the Sea going to Cancun, Roatan, Belize, and Cozumel.

Re: Don't leave home without it !

Walkie-Talkies. If your wife (or husband, I quess) is always wandering away a set of walkie-talkies will end a lot of frustration when trying to find her. You can find a good set for about $10-$20...

Re: cozumel suggestions pls

There are many things to do in Cozumel but the main attraction has always been diving around the reefs. Forget the snuba, go for the real thing. Take a course for beginners--a couple of hours--then...

You remind yourself that nobody is perfect, you forgive him, and tell him to have a nice day--if he is bigger than you.

If he is smaller than you, you tell him what a jerk he is and if he doesn't...
