You can put a cash limit on their cards but this does not limit where it can be spent. Incidentally, all children get wristbands but these are for the purpose of determining the location of their...

Can't imagine a room steward stealing a hat - perhaps they didn't realize the blanket was your personal one? Sounds pretty bizarre to me. I've even dropped loose change on the floor and had the room...

ITA with Mike - the grievance is with the insurance company and no one else. Time to add "never book cruiseline air" to "never fly in the day of the cruise."

The vouchers are really just for "show" if you want to have something to hand to your waitstaff (or maybe add a little extra to the envelopes). The staff gets the (pooled) tips regardless of whether...

The biggest problem will be with the 17 year old - not allowed in the disco after, I think, 10 p.m. and not allowed in the casino either. The 20 year old can be in the disco but cannot drink.

It would have to be a handicapped cabin in order to get the scooter through the doors - you are not allowed to leave them in the hallway.

No longer true - you are not permitted to bring ANY alcoholic beverages onboard. I think this policy has been in effect since 2005 or 2006.

ITA - it will be pretty funny, too. I believe the change to a cash bar will take place on 7/1/09 along with the other changes. Not sure about the "mass" C&A party, but at the Platinum/Diamond one you...

We've done it twice on Voyager and once on Explorer - had a great time on every trip. Sure another day in Bermuda would be nice, but it's a good reason to do it again. It's a lovely island with...

We've sailed on Royal a number of times and they have ALWAYS had steak/salmon/chicken available as alternate items on the dinner menu.
