    Thank you for the review. We were on that ship in the summer of 2008 and though that was not spring break it was vacation time and it was packed with kids. We too loved the ship especially the promenade area. We also had seats on the beach and watch those zip liners and go past us like crazy and that is really something!

    Happy Hump Day, Crazies! Winter has returned; temps around 35 degrees....a rain/snow mix...windy....blecch! But I guess it could be worse....we could be in South Dakota, lol. I've had a relatively easy one meeting or event per day this week - in addition to Lucas after school. So I was able to get our Costa Rica trip booked for early December. This is a trip we purchased at the Mutual Ground Gala auction last year...a week on the Pacific coast of Costa Rica. We chose The Westin Playa Conchal for our resort and got flights arranged, etc. It's almost time for the gala again...we'll have to see what trips they are offering this time... We have been to Costa Rica twice on Canal cruises but it will be kind of nice to plunk ourselves there for a longer period of time. Ray - Sounds like you are busier than ever! 2021 still works for us... Jackie - One more week.... Nice to hear from you, Keith & Rita! Hope everyone else is having a good week!

    On our very first trip to Cozumel in 1998 we booked a "Jeep" tour and when we got there it was Geo Trackers! One of the worse 4-drive vehicles ever produced. In spite of that we had a great time touring the island.

    I definitely would have dozed off. 😴 Don’t people consider the guests’ comfort and enjoyment when planning weddings? I saw your photos and videos on Facebook. It looked like a beautiful wedding, otherwise.

    Hello, Crazies! There are just 47 days left to get ready for our China cruise. I thought we were ready two weeks ago, but Yuki keeps on finding things that she wants to arrange. I say, go for the cheese, gal! The studio has 17 students now and that, coupled with the ten regular gigs I play plus choir and church council, has me running pretty much all the time. Andi, the cruise (on, as Jan so aptly put it, the Anthem of The River) now looms large on the horizon. I didn't mean to jump on upcoming cruising plans for 2020 - I'm still fine with doing the Adriatic in 2021 (more time to save up for it!) I think the Viking river boats are taking an ancient viking stance toward the competition, and figuring to ram any boat on the river with the wrong marque. I'm not too worried about the problem on the ocean cruiser, since we have done so many RC cruises, and their record is not stellar, either. In any event, nobody can possibly catch up to Carnival when it comes to cruising mishaps... Shari, my church is still praying for your total recovery (and that you'll follow doctor's orders!!!) You have a small army out here cheering for you. Jan, if I wanted to eliminate all worries about incidents at sea, I woldn't cruise at all. All lines experience problems (although it seems like the low-cost lines experience more - then again, they have more ships!) Anyway, I'm not likely to curtail my cruising because my favorite line has a .01% rate of at-sea incidents!! I've put away the sneau blower, which is not just wishful thinking. I do believe we've seen the last of the below-thirty degree days here on the Shore. How's it looking up there in New Inkland? Miranda, it's nice to know that you're totally back in place, keeping the Continent from falling apart (the Brits, well, that's another question.) Jackie, it looks like clear weather in the east, at least until mid-summer. Here, we get about six days of spring. How does it fit together in the Sunshine State? I have a few chores to do before the onslaught of students starting at 4:00, so I'd better get to it... Have A Great Day, Crazies!

    Exactly! My airlines had no idea where I was headed once we landed...they don't "just know" unless you tell them... I think she made that up after it became a problem. I would like to hear the airline's side.

    What were they thinking? Really? The chances not to get caught are zero when you are going through security on a cruise ship.

    Large family travel

    Hi! My extended family of 16, which includes 2- 2year olds, are taking a Mediterranean Cruise in October. We disembark in Civitavecchia early in the morning and are planning a 2 night stay in Rome. We rented a Airbnb in the center of Rome but are not able to check in until 4pm. We would just make arrangements for a transfer and go sightseeing til 4p but we will not be able to do that easily with all of our luggage! I guess it would have been easier to stay at a hotel, as they would hold our luggage, but the Airbnb was so beautiful couldn’t pass it by.... does anyone have any suggestions??

    Jan - that's awesome that you guys could do what you enjoyed and still have a great cruise and make the best of it, despite the kids. We are a little different in that we do not want to spend time in our cabin, balcony or not (actually some days we don't even see the cabin until late afternoon when we are getting ready for the evening). Don't forget we live in sunny hot Florida so the balcony is certainly not a huge attraction for us. We also are not interested in room service - we like to experience most of the different restaurant offerings onboard during the duration of our cruise. So consequently being out and about on the ship all day we have a good chance of being in contact with the kids. One thing we absolutely have in common though, is going to "off the beaten path" places while in port ..... that is what we always do ..... escape the crowds and touristy areas. Aaaah, talking about off the beaten path places brings many of them around the world to memory and makes me want to get out on the ocean again!!!!

    The MDR’s are just fine with us. It seems to me that people who criticize them are comparing them to fine dining restaurants when in fact these are supposed to be more like banquet style meals and I think for the most part they succeed at that.

    Not only are the prices going up for Specialty Dining, but the suggestion for reservations at the complimentary dining rooms is annoying. I simply don't know when, where or if I'll feel like eating a big meal after a long day in port. I've been cruising Norwegian often in the last few years, and pushing advance reservation defeats the purpose of their "Freestyle" cruising. More often than not, we wait until after 8 to eat to avoid the lines for those without a reservation.

    We did enjoy the Rooftop Garden Grill and did not feel the cost was outrageous and we got a discount on La Petite Chef due to them cancelling another choice, but felt the experience and food was worth the full cost. We were perfectly happy with the various MDRs, though.

    Right now, I'm only seeing Emeril's listed for Mardi Gras, which will also have Guy's Burger Joint and Guy's Pig and Anchor. Guy's Burgers and Guy's P&A is also on Horizon and will be on the new Panorama.

    These days you can be on hold for inordinate amounts of time with airlines. We booked a flight early next year through the UA website with legs on Air China and Air Canada so seats for these cant be assigned through United. I was on hold twice with Air Canada each time literally nearly an hour but finally got through. Air China was another crazy hold time too. I was on hold three separate occasions for 40 minutes before I gave up. Then I thought to look at contact numbers per the Air China website and it showed several offices in the US. I called the one in Honolulu and spoke to a live person after 4 rings. This is promising I thought. Next thing you know BINGO! Got the seats. So if there is a clogged artery try going around it. Maybe I learned a trick or two during my 24 years of taking care of patients post coronary bypass surgery. 😎 BTW my emails to Air China unanswered for 4 days. 😡

    Hi Lady K, and welcome to CruiseCrazies.😁 I've already got 3 cruises planned for next year so, unfortunately, can't fit in another, but I hear she's an awesome ship, especially after her refit last year. Enjoy, and tell us more. What's the itinerary?

    Thank you, Shari!🙂 Seawalk, fortunately, had enough solid floor surrounding the glass to make it less obvious that there was nothing between us and the ocean.😁

    A group of cruise ship passengers have claimed they were stuck in a malfunctioning elevator for more than an hour during a vacation. Adding insult to injury, the five guests say they were banned from all future cruises with the company after being freed, according to comments posted online. The passengers were traveling with Carnival Cruise Line when they became trapped in an elevator on the Carnival Inspiration ship, according to Cruise Law News. The group were stuck for more than an hour, with one passenger reportedly fainting while waiting to be rescued. But according to accounts posted to Facebook, Carnival staff were insensitive and disinterested towards the stranded guests. Jacob Burrola posted several photos and videos of the experience to his Facebook page. He claimed that crew members mocked the trapped guests and took videos of them even while one of the passengers fainted. He also said the crew told passengers that “another 45 minutes won’t kill anyone after being stuck for over an hour with sick passengers on board.” The officers assisting allegedly suggested the guests were at fault for the malfunction, and told them “not to touch anything,” guests writing on Facebook added. “They didn’t ask us what happened and they just started trying to pry the doors open with a ‘box wrench’ which caused it to slip,” one passenger explained. But even after the trapped guests were eventually released, they were banned from all future cruises with Carnival Cruise Lines. Before they left the ship, they were delivered letters signed by the master of the Inspiration, Crescenzo Palomba, and two witnesses—the ship’s staff captain and the chief security officer. “This letter will confirm your discussion with Carnival Cruise Line (“Carnival Inspiration”) personnel where you were informed that you will be disembarked from the vessel and not permitted to sail onboard any Carnival Cruise Line vessel in the future,” the notice read. “This decision was based on your actions on the current cruise, which were a violation of the ship rules, interfered with the safety and/or enjoyment of other guests on the ship or caused harm to Carnival.” It warned that any future efforts to book trips with the cruise line “will result in cancellation and a possible loss of deposit monies. You will be responsible for all travel expenses incurred and an invoice will be sent to your home address for payment. Thank you for your cooperation in this matter.” A Carnival Cruise Lines spokesperson told Newsweek there are “always two sides to every story. We had a group of guests stuck in one of our elevators last week for approximately 30-40 minutes. Our onboard team was summoned to provide assistance. Unfortunately, because of the extensive damage to the elevator doors and cabling caused by the guests, the work took longer than expected.” BY DAVID BRENNAN, Newsweek Re-posted on CruiseCrazies.com - Cruise News, Articles, Forums, Packing List, Ship Tracker, and more For more cruise news and articles go to https://www.cruisecrazies.com View full article

    Buzz kill at wedding.

    I need to vent just a bit. We went to a wedding Saturday downtown Chicago. All was ok until the reception. Guess how many people spoke then? Usually its a few like the brides dad, best man, maid of honor, maybe a couple more. Well they had 13, yes 13 people give speeches! Major buzz kill. One guy, an uncle of the bride rambled on for 15 minutes and finally his wife had to sit him down. ☺️ People were falling asleep, we went to the lobby to watch tv. Well dinner was very late and afterwards we just went to bed as we had a room in the hotel. Took the fun out of it. Just goes to show why wedding planners are in business. Cheers folks!
