Don't Choose a Cabin Just Because It's the Cheapest

Posted by sunluva7 , Dec 09 2014 - - - - - - · 57 views

What you don't see until you investigate a little further is that the $199 cabin is the lead-in price, or the price of the cabin at the lowest category, which tend to be the l...

Posted by sunluva7 , Dec 02 2014 - - - - - - · 70 views

Bringing the Kids? Two Cabins are Better Than One! Are you bringing the kids on your cruise? You've got a few of choices for accommodations. You can all squeeze into a standard cabin for 4 (some ships allow 5 in a cabin). Another option is to book a more costly family-size cabin or suite for more elbow room.

Balance Alone and Together Time When Cruising with Friends and Family Cruises have so much going on at any given time, catering to all kinds of individual preferences.  If you want your family or group of friends to stick together like glue through the whole vacation, two things will happen:  (a) you will miss a lot, and (b) you'll resent each other by the end of it.  For example, your husband is fond of the casino, but the...

Get to Know Your Cabin Before Booking It You found a great cruise deal on line and booked it.  You patted yourself on the back and told all your friends about it.  Maybe it was a buy-one, get-one-free promotion.  Or maybe it was a free upgrade.  Whatever the deal, congratulations!  But before you click the "Reserve" button, be sure you know what you're getting.  Do...

Avoid the Crowds at the Buffet on Embarkation Day ~ Enjoy a More Leisurely Lunch Those who have cruised before know what a popular place the ship's buffet is on embarkation day.  It's as though 3,000 cruisers arrive on board and haven't eaten in days.  Eager, hungry vacationers line up at the door, squirt the required antibacterial lotion into the palms of their hands, fill their plates, and search for the grand prize: a sea...

Shut Up and Pay Attention During the Muster Drill

Posted by sunluva7 , Nov 19 2013 - - - - - - · 1,379 views
