As of right now I have a Promenade Suite on the Freedom of the Seas all to myself (which is okay too). But I don't mind defraying my...

From my experience, the bars are open from noon on. There is usually a sail away party the first day, and since some folks stay on the ship on port days, you bet the bars are open. I think they may...

I had a feeling I was out of luck with NCL since I did look around a bit, but I was hoping some more experienced cruisers would have a secret that I didn't know about.

Re: 40 yo SF looking 4 cabin mate 4 NCL Caribbean Cruise 11/

That's too bad you didn't get to cruise over the fall/winter. But the other stuff sounded fun too, do stuff with your son before he's "too cool" to hang with his dad. lol

Yes I did. I went with someone I met on another board - there were probably 20 of us on that roll call. I snorkeled with him and his wife in Torotola, and we did the snorkel trip on HMC. Worked...

Smuggler's Cove, Tortola. Is the walk to the beach tough?

Hey everyone,

I'm on the Zuiderdam 11/10 and one of our stops is Road Town, Tortola. It seems to be a weird time - noon to 10:00 pm. That probably leaves out most sailing excursions (saw a few...

Bono and Nelson Mandella - kind of obvious topic, how to really change conditions in Africa. For a being "just a rock star", Bono is a surprisingly good speaker.
