We were on a Royal cruise and could not disembark until 9:45. Considering you have an international flight, you would probably have not been there in time. Chances are fairly good you will be ok,...

I agree fake tans are not ideal, but anyone who thinks getting a 'base tan' so they don't burn is the way to go is just fooling themselves. Anytime there is darkening of the skin from being in the...

Thanks for the info. One of the reasons we chose that ship is that it did seem more 'Celebrity-like' than some of their other classes of ships. I am looking forward to it - Celebrity is a little...
