Re: Travel Steamer

Well, it still doesn't answer the question about not being allowed to use travel irons or steamers in the cabins. Will my bags be checked for them?? Will it be confiscated from my room if I bring...

No irons?!? That's almost as bad as not allowing me to bring any liquor into my cabin! As cruiselines keep adding restrictions, land-based hotels start to look better and better.

Do they search...

QM2 Nightlife?

I have narrowed my next cruise down to QM2 or one of Celebrity's. I've sailed on Holland and Carnival previously. I want something upscale with wonderful food and service, but I also want a fun...

I wish I had the perfect response for chronic complainers. Someone I must interact with frequently must surely be one of the most negative, complaining, unhappy people on the face of the earth. I...

As someone else mentioned, you might want to avoid the scopolamine patch. I used it for a cross country road trip once, and I slept almost non-stop for 30 hours! (no, I was not the driver!) LOL

Kuki,
Could you elaborate on your preference for stern? Do you know why less motion would be felt there (I guess I'm assuming that's part of the reason for your preference). I'm afraid to try...

balcony size

I see that some of the balconies on Carnival are 35 square feet. That seems really tiny. Assuming a cabin is about 10 feet wide, and assuming the balcony runs the full width of the cabin, then the...

finding a mid-sized ship

Is there a good resource for finding a list of mid-sized ships (i.e. 1200-1800 passengers) other than going to every cruiseline site and reading about every single ship? Or can you recommend a few...

Jodi,
I understand what you're saying about sites specifically claiming to have "last minute rates" being the same as other sites.
But did you find that it was really worth the savings by booking...

booking last minute??

I've visited several "last minute" cruise sites (although by last minute, they seem to mean 90 days or less).

Is it worth it to try to book through a last minute site? I'm thinking that airfare...

Re: People who only post once, to disparage a cruiseline

Thomas, do you ever post as simply "Tom"? (and do you own a boat named Morgantruce?) Your posts remind me of someone on another messageboard.

Re: New Holland Ships

I wouldn't say there was "no one" under 75, but our HAL cruise certainly did have a large percentage of retirement-age folks. We are "early 40-ish" and prefer an older, more dignified crowd, as...
