Re: HAL Dinner Dress Code Question

I returned August 14 from Bermuda (a lovely spot - too bad a civilized line like HAL does not go there) on Norwegian Majesty. I made the mistake of posting (on Cruise Critic) my comments concerning...

Re: Re: Old people cut lines

I have to differ -- one of the primary assets an elderly person has is his/her ability to pass along the values of our civilization to younger generations. When the elderly fail to do this - when...

Re: Is the corkage fee really charged?

Re: Norwegian vs. Carnival?

Freestyle is OK, but I like the idea of getting to know a group -- if there is a problem, the headwaiter can change table assignments -- I have never been on a ship where all seats were assigned. ...

Re: Midnight Buffet on Zuiderdam
