    Beverage Packages

    We cruise often and we figured out that we are better off paying for drinks as we order them. We don't drink to excess that way.

    Packing for a cruise made easy!

    This looks intriguing...and the prices are quite reasonable. I wish I had feedback from some actual users...

    Donald - thanks for sharing your photos and ship experiences. I can imagine how an 8-year-old would be enchanted by the Norisle ferry. No need to be "polite" here. We would LOVE to hear about your least favorite cruise line. I promise we won't judge!😊 My dream is to do a transatlantic, but if I want to take my husband along, I have to adhere to his schedule which, unfortunately, doesn't allow for long cruises at the best times of the year. 😐 May someday ...

    Can you help

    Crooosin, I will be on the Adventure in March (3/17) so if you haven't gotten one by then I might be able to pick one up for you. Post again as we get closer with an update. Of course I hope you will visit and post often between now and then; we would love to hear about your past cruises and the ones you have coming up!

    One of the most confusing things for travelers when booking flights are the names on the reservation. As we all know - or should know, especially if booking our own flights - airline reservations require names to exactly match those on the guest’s passport or ID. But what about middle names? According to theTSA and Homeland Security travel requirements, middle names are not required, even if the middle name is spelled out on the passenger’s passport or traveling ID. In fact, by omitting the middle name, you avoid confusion as to whether to use middle initial or middle name, or in the case of some, having to squeeze 2 middle names on the reservation. You also avoid the annoying running of two names together on the flight reservation, i.e. “John Paul Jones” becomes “Johnpaul Jones”. When TSA states the requirement that names match ID, they are not concerned with middle names, only the accurate spelling of first and last. For instance, if the passport says “Thomas Smith”, then “Tom” Smith is unacceptable. I hope this clears up the confusion and makes your next flight reservation go easy.🙂

    We were on the NCL Dawn out of New Orleans and visited the port and new covered dock on Jan, 02, 2017. We were very impressed with this private port of call. Had a great beach, pool, zip lines, bars, restaurants, etc. A host of activities are available. We were told the port will eventually be used by other cruise lines.

    99 per day is quite a lot! Wonder if this is going to encourage folks to try harder on smuggling their own beverages onboard!

    You're right on the mark, Andi - I think that's what Disney had in mind all along when they built Aulani. Cruise and resort package in paradise. Sounds good to me! 😁🛳️🏖️

    Beverage Packages

    Jsinapijr - thanks for wording this posting in the nonjudgmental, neutral way that you did. There are some who do drink enough to make a package worthwhile, and there are some who would rather just pay up front for everything and not worry about added expenses during the cruise. I have bought the drink package a time or two when they offered a discount on it, and I have taken advantage of it when it has been a free perk. But I did tend to drink more than I normally would with the package, which could be a not-so-good consequence, ha. Having said that.... I do think beverage package prices are getting out of control. I would not choose my cruise line based on an included drink package, however, if more than one of my favored cruise lines are offering the itinerary I want, a plus might be the one offering a free drink package! If prices were comparable to, or even just a tad higher than what I would drink anyway, then I would definitely rather get a package; I can budget for it, pay it, and forget it.

    I agree, Jan! Much as I would love this voyage (and would love to have the means to book this voyage,) I am actually happy to hear that the ice is more abundant this year; such is the risk of booking an adventure cruise or out-of-the-norm itinerary.

    Hi DonaldMC! WELCOME!...it's so nice to have you on CruiseCrazies with us. I love hearing about your cruises and seeing the great pictures. I love the picture of the "Norway." We also cruised on her a few years back. I haven't been on the QM 2, but I have friends who have sailed on her many times. We would love to have you join in our forums and would love to hear all about some of your cruises. We have forums for reviews, pictures, information, and much more. We even have a forum to just chat, called "The Daily Dock." Come and join in on any of the forums...we will love to hear from you. If you have any questions, don't be afraid to ask.

    Can you help

    We have been on 11 cruises and have decided to collect and display the models of the ships we have been on. The problem is we have only just decided to do this. We need models from navigator, independence and adventure and rhapsody. I am asking if there is anyone willing to purchase a model on my behalf. I can assure you I am genuine.

    A Peek Inside Carnival Horizon

    Forgot to say WELCOME Joe...love your blog and the great pictures! We were on the "Holiday" back in the '80s and it was pretty bad, but decided to go with a group of friends on the "Liberty" in 2009. I was amazed at how much better the ships looked, and the food and entertainment was very good. Although I would love to try other ships, I wouldn't hesitate to sail on the newer Carnival ships again. Loved the melting chocolate cake with a little ice cream on top. Had that almost every night, even though the crème Brule is usually my favorite.

    Not money but convenience...... Pack some wire (dry cleaner) coat hangers, as there are never enough in the closets. Bring a small night light or, most bathroom doors are not tight at the bottom so leave the light on and it works. If you have a stateroom with a card slot at the door to allow lights to be turned on, use a business card instead of the room key and just leave it in.

    I agree with all of the above - especially a bunch of dollar bills for tipping. Beverages? Not so much. I bring a refillable water bottle. Lugging all that soda is too cumbersome and a pain in the !#@&!!

    Oh yeah, we need to bring the mega bottle of Tums to handle all that food!🤣

    Yes...great idea...I have used that...good stuff. Both the Emergen-C and the Pepto.

    I’m with you on the Pepto, that stuff works wonders when needed. Whenever I travel I take the emergen-c powder for the week leading up to the trip, each day during the trip, and for a few days after. It really helps keep my immune system strong and has a great track record in doing so!

    Great advice, Jason...also a good idea to bring along some Pepto Bismol and a laxative. When away from home we often run into a few stomach issues...especially if traveling in Mexico or similar areas. We are often eating things we are not always used to. Vitamins are good also to help keep up our energy since we often are not sleeping enough and just keeping up with so much to see and do, with all the ports and all.
