Exclamation Formal Nights on Cruise

If your husband has a dark suit, he will be fine. You see fewer and fewer men in a tux these days. I wear one, but that's my preference. If you cruise infrequently, don't bother to buy one, and...

Talking Funniest Cruise Memory

In 50+ cruises, we've seen and heard some funny things. Here's a couple of my favorites:

We were on a Radiance class ship, on the glass elevator that looks out over the sea. A young couple got...

Question On Board Bookings

Any idea how this affects bookings already on the books? We booked three cruises while on the Grandeur in January, and got $150 per cruise on two of them.

Talking Panoramic Ocean View Cabins

We were in one of these cabins (8039) on Grandeur for 28 days beginning January 11. When they did the "refurb" of the ship, they put in a wall between the cabins and the Centrum. Cabin 8037 is...

Red face Crowded Concierge Lounge

We just got off the Brilliance Saturday. The scene in the CL was chaotic. People were getting there at 4:00 to get seats. The Diamond Lounge next door was just as bad. We were using the Colony...

Talking Panoramic Ocean View Cabins

These cabins are where public areas used to be (Library, Future Cruises, Concierge Lounge, etc.) The name comes from the fact that they left the floor-to-ceiling windows in place, so you get great...

Several years ago, while on a west coast cruise, we met a 98 year old woman who was on her 110th cruise. She had been married to the same man for 75 years, and was still working - as a docent at a...

I agree wholeheartedly about the value of a good agent. I think we have one of the best. Too bad I can't reveal the name.

Question Self-Booking

I'm confused...(some say that's normal for me). I've read in several posts that people book cruises directly with the cruise line so "I can have control over my bookings". I don't have a problem...

We also had a party line on our first phone. You could tell from the number of rings whether the call was for you or someone else. If you picked up, you could also hear "clicks" on the line,...

Exclamation Explorer Dress Code

On non-formal nights, the suggested dress is smart casual, which, for men, means Dockers-type pants, and a golf...

Red face Tipping in Specialty Restaurant

That's true, but I've never been sure who actually got the included gratuity. So, I always leave a $10 bill. If we're using the BOGO coupon (at Chops), that's two very nice meals for $40. Hard to get...

We have been on 40+ cruises, and our greatest fear on each and every cruise is that we will be seated with the "tablemates from Hell" at dinner. Fortunately, it has only happened two or three times,...

Red face Concierge Lounge/Diamond Club

Not every ship has a dedicated Concierge Lounge. Can't really say how they handle their Suite and Diamond Plus cruisers, since we tend to avoid those ships.

We were on the Jewel OTS in...
