Re: New Orleans/Carnival Conquest Review

Cali-croozer: The liquor tasting was in the Capers. I think it was at 6:30. They have tables set up outside the shops and you just walk up and ask for what you want. Our dinner time was 8:00 at...

Re: what if you just don't tip

LOL . . . I'm an attorney so I know all about fine print. I am no novice and I draft complicated contracts. Doesn't mean I have to like fine print though. In fact, most transactional attorneys do...

Re: what if you just don't tip

The cruiselines could solve this entire problem by including tips (or fair market wages) as part of the price, but they don't want to do that. They want to advertise a cheap fare and then hit the...

Re: Hilton New Orleans?

I am staying the weekend of Jazz Fest and could not get the $99 special (if it even exists). Use priceline and search for cheap parking and you can match it yourself.

Re: New Orleans Hotel and Parking at the pier

I have read on another board of a cruise special $99 rate (including one week parking) for the Hilton Riverside in New Orleans. This may be something to look into.

Re: forced tipping

Until tipping becomes a mandatory rather than optional expense, these debates will continue ad naseum. The cruise lines are relying on individuals and social mores to ensure their employees are paid...
