Nassau IMO is no great shakes. ...

Re: Family Dining Hours on Board

On a ship that has two dining rooms, I think it would be a good idea to reserve one for children & have the other be "adults only" without time restrictions.

Re: dunn's river falls

"thrill" is probably a bit strong but they will have fun.

Pack water shoes for them & be very careful of the vendors. They can be a bit over-zealous to put it mildly.

Re: What to do with the luggage while waiting to embark?

There is also a service near the pier audiogilla (check the spelling). She holds luggage for $1 per bag. Most hotels are equipped to deal with this & shoudl store your stuff for you.

Re: How Many of You Are Guilty of This?

The LAST thing I want to do when I get off a cruise is eat. I suffer from the post cruise rocking & can only imagine how horrible I would feel with a stomach full of grease.

Re: majesty or sovereign HELP!!!!!!

I enjoyed my Majesty cruise. They are very similar. Which port is closer / cheaper? I have heard that the Sovereign gets more kids given the port's proximity to Disney.

Re: Flights

The cruise line doesn't always control your departure time: customs & immigration do. That's why it's best to plan for long delays.

Re: cabin not ready what to do with carry on's?

Especially after London, unattended bags are a security threat. If you see one, report it & it will be investigated. To avoid all the hassle, just keep yours with you & don't leave it somewhere.
