Re: Re: Diamond Princess or not?

Our first cruise, and we loved it! The ship is so big, that it never felt crowded, the food was good, our kids really liked the kids club, and the scenery was breathtaking. I would definately take...

Re: PC vs Traditional

This will be our first cruise and we chose PC dining. For the formal nights and semi-formal nights we plan to request a table with other cruisers, the larger the table, the better. For the rest of...

Re: saving pool chairs

Are there not any staff members who you can complain to? If it's against the rules then I would think you could complain and get a chair. Right?

Lecturers

Does anyone know anything about RSSC lecture series? Do they have lecturers on every cruise? What are the topics? Are the lectures worthwhile? I'm considering a cruise to Bermuda or Cozumel.

Re: Costa Maya

I called Carnival, and the lack of a link to Costa Maya excursions is a mistake. If you ask, they can fax or e-mail you a list of Costa Maya excursions for booking through Carnival.

Hi Erin,
I'm a Canuck too, from Oakville.

Re: Just back from Grandeur Cruise, questions?

There is lots of shopping and tourist fare at the pier area. They have dancers that entertain etc., but it does somewhat resemble a zoo. I went on a tour of the ruins and it was a very hot day, it...
