Yes, one of the main dining rooms should be open. You'll have to go to them to see which one as they don't advertise it. We had a wonderful, quiet, peaceful lunch on embarkation day for our TA in...

I got credit for cruises in the mid 1970's by sending pictures of me at the Captain's Circle party. You're just not getting the right person to talk to which can be very frustrating. I'm surprised...

They're both buffets, but Cafe Caribe has more themed menus most evenings and often at lunch. I didn't really see much difference at breakfast. Both have service on the starboard and port sides,...

I agree; we took a 12 pk. of water onboard for a 15 day Hawaiian cruise. By the end of the trip we had 10 bottles left. This time we are buying 2 bottles when we board and refilling them as needed.
