Re: Rhapsody boat

I guess the perspective varies. I haven't cruised any of the premium lines so I don't know what a true "luxury liner" is. I was on the Rhapsody 10/24 - 10/31 and loved it. Yes, it is showing a few...

Re: Gripe! Carnival continues to lie about GC stops

Carnival is not the only line telling people they will stop in Grand Cayman. I am supposed to stop in Grand Cayman on Oct. 28th as part of the Rhapsody cruise. According to Royal Caribbean, they are...

Re: Whats wrong with Europe?

DavidB,

We may have a "fall out" if you lump the Texans in with the New Yorkers. Just kidding!! It's kind of like refering to a Scot as a Brit. There's nothing wrong with the Europeans, especially...

Re: Black & Decker Travel Steamer?

I found the Black and Decker steamer (others too) on Amazon.com. It is offered from the Sportsman's Guide for $12.97 + $5.99 shipping. I ordered one so hopefully it will work okay. I bought some...

Re: Crystal Harmony embarkation dress

Casual for me - shorts and shirt is good. I don't think I'd wear a tank top. I don't think you will see very many people dressed up to board the ship. Usually the dining room doesn't enforce the "no...

Re: Bird Island trip - Antigua

My husband and I did the Bird Is. catamaran in 2001 and loved it. The boat takes you about 1/4 way around Antigua. We watched sailboats and people on jet skis and windsurfing. I think there was an...

Re: RCI SAYS - NO MORE DISCOUNTS FOR ANYONE!

Dave,

If it were only a matter of $20, I don't think this many people would be upset and confused about the policy. I have three cruises currently booked and know the advertised price on the RCCL...

Re: RCI SAYS - NO MORE DISCOUNTS FOR ANYONE!

Since one of the previous posters compared cruise shopping to buying a new car, I'm going to throw in my two cents worth since my husband and I bought a new car last night. We had the choices...

Re: Cruiselines and the disabled

DavidB,

My mom is much more easy going than I am so she is just happy to take a cruise. She knows the limitations involved in traveling even in the US. Growing up, I can remember several times...

Re: Cruiselines and the disabled

We're looking at doing our own excursions. It's my parent's first cruise so their preference is to go with the cruise line excursions so they don't accidentally miss the boat. I know this doesn't...

Cruiselines and the disabled

I've been trying to plan shore excursions for my family since we booked our western Caribbean October cruise back in January. One member of my family is in a wheelchair. I am not naive enought to...

Re: Shore excursions with Royal Caribbean

I didn't find Royal Caribbean helpful at all in suggesting shore excursions. We are on the Rhapsody in October with stops in Key West, Grand Cayman, and Cozumel. I realize that aside from Key West,...

Re: 4 Years Later

Aside from the direct insults, I think the gripe board is just a way to blow off some steam then get over it. It's true that the gripes haven't changed much, but most of my daily gripes are the same...

Re: on line booking problem

I think it is your online agent that is the problem. I got pricing from an online agent then had computer problems for a couple of days. I filled out the booking e-mail that I was sent, but got a...

Re: Anyone here from cruisecritic?

I think there are a bunch of us who frequent multiple boards. There's more volume on the other board, but this one has the Cruise Gripes board, which can be fun reading. The old gripes are getting...

Re: St. Marteen See & Sea

There are about 10 fairly steep stairs to go down to get to the submersed part. Basically, it is a boat with a windowed area about 6 feet below the water line. You board on the upper deck then walk...

Re: Why are some people so hard on kid cruisers

Here are some examples of what I considered uncontrolled behavior. However, I see this happening everywhere and not just on the ships. Maybe it is "acceptable" child behavior, and I'm the one with a...

Re: outrageous behaviour

I still want to know what a woman was doing going to the bathroom in front of checkin. There's got to be more to that story!

I was snorkeling off Pinel Island (near Orient Beach, St. Martin) in...

Re: Inappropriate Excursors

I have to disagree about the cruiselines (Royal Caribbean) doing a good job of indicating what excursions are appropriate for wheel chair users. The excursion brocure divides activies into leisurely,...

Re: Key West

They are basically the same thing, even run by the same company. Depending on when your cruise arrives in port, the Trolley (on your own) may be the better deal. I'm not sure how some of the cruise...

Re: I can't believe people can't read internet ads

I think spending 45 minutes doing the impossible for someone is an acceptable gripe. Why shouldn't the consumer be informed? Before I started doing internet research on my own and using a online TA,...

Re: How does Orient Beach "work?"
