Re: Blowdryers/Wake-Up Calls on Grand

Ames, You'll be all set on Grand. The wake-up calls never failed us, and for small dryers, we thought the hairdryers packed more punch than a lot of them. Plenty of shampoo/conditioner/soap in the...

Re: Mercury Internet

Re: Hey, Jeannie

Re: Anyone Else Going Mercury 1/20/02?

I haven't received any confirmations from anyone but you, so that makes 4 of us, but we should have at least 6 for the van. Eureka Turismo did get back with me this morning, and we can...

Re: Help: Princess vs HAL?

Well, we've never been on HAL, I'll admit. I'll also admit that we loved Princess so much I don't know if we'll ever sail anyone else. While our son did not come with us, we were still impressed...

Re: Full Grand

We were on a full Grand last month. It was fine. The Vista Lounge is small, so if you are going to a show there, get there early. Lounge chairs at the pools were close to full, but we were never...

Re: Limon and Cartagena
