  1. Thanks guys. I appreciate your input and Ed, your ongoing investigation. Enjoy your cruise. Debbie
  2. The last cruise my husband and I went on was in 2005. It's been way too long. I'm curious as to whether or not the down turn in the economy has affected the quality of cruising any. If so, does it seem as though you're getting better service for your money or less quality for what you're spending. We're going on RCCL the 5th of January. This will be our 5th cruise and the 3rd one with RCCL. Thanks. Debbie
  3. My hubby and I are also sailing on the Monarch the first week in January. It will be our third time with RCCL. We've never had issues with storage space for our luggage. I've learned to pack bags that I can nestle inside each other when empty. My husband is a large, tall man and maneuvering around the cabin, getting in and out of bed, is never a problem. Enjoy yourselves. Debbie
  4. Thanks for the review Chasbos. My husband and I sailed on the Inspiration in December 2004. The ship did show her age, but thankfully the service was very good. I found the menu in the dining room to be good. With more than one choice, I was sure to find something I liked, and it's a good chance to try something new. We were disappointed with the entertainment. For them to advertise themselves as the "Fun Ships", we never once had live music at the pool area, and had to hit every night spot to find any kind of night life. We pretty much had to make our own. Due to an unexpected accident to a crew member, we didn't get to travel to Grand Cayman and had to go to another port in Mexico so that the injured person could get hospital care. We were disappointed about the change in itinerary, but over a year has passed, and we know accidents do happen. It was our third cruise and the first on Carnival and we're not in any hurry to cruise with them again.
  5. You guys can be too funny. Thanks for brightening an otherwise dreary day. Debra
  6. Well, we didn't get the opportunity to spend the day on Coco Cay. The water was too rough for the tenders so we spent the day at sea. But you know, an unexpected day at sea is always nice. The cruise overall was pleasant. We docked in Key West at the start of their "Fantasy Fest" celebration so the small island was quite crowded but enjoyable. The Majesty of the Seas is an older boat and shows its age but the crew more than made up for its wear. My husband and I had a great time and look forward to our next trip..........wherever that may be. Thanks for everyones good wishes and input. Debra
  7. RCI was our first line, Celebrity the second and Carnival the third. We're taking our fourth cruise next week and we're going back to RCI. I don't know if it was because it was our first one, but we seemed to enjoy the RCI cruise the most. debra
  8. Thanks everyone. The Sovereign of the Seas was the same ship my husband and I sailed on for our very first cruise in 2001. Thanks Rose.
  9. This is exactly what I'm talking about. Thanks to all of you. debra
  10. that everyone on this site has got to be the most friendly and pleasant of any site I have ever visited. Even someone who has posted so very little is made to feel as though I'm a long-standing member of a large, large group of friends. Thanks! debra
  11. Once onboard and out to sea, all of this aggravation will simply be a distant memory. Have a great time! divey
  12. My husband and I cruised to Cozumel on Carnival last December and it's amazing to see the damage done to some of the places we stopped into. I hope that they're back to 100% before long. divey
  13. My husband and I are leaving Monday, December 5 on Royal Caribbean's Majesty of the Seas heading for the Bahamas. One of the stops is to their private Island, CoCo Cay. We were there in 2001 and the island was pretty rustic. I've heard that the cruise line has improved the surroundings a little to include more activities and sightseeing. Has anyone been there lately? I do remember that the Jelly Fish were everywhere! My idea of a perfect cruise day is to lay around, soak up the sun, have a drink or two and pretty much do nothing. To everyone cruising in the near and distant future............ENJOY!!!!!!!! divey
  14. My husband and I are going on a RCCL cruise departing Miami on December 5, 2005. I know the Majesty is an older ship that's been redone once. Does anyone have info on this ship that they'd like to share? Debra
  15. My husband and I are leaving out of Miami on December 5 for a RCCL cruise, so the responses you get regarding this posting will interest me also. Debra
  16. My husband and I plan on sailing out of Miami onboard RCI's Majesty of the Seas in December. Any info on the ship and the port would be greatly appreciated. Debra
  17. I've only sailed on three different lines but based on those three I preferred the food on Celebrity Galaxy, and the overall service on Royal Caribbean. I was left somewhat disappointed with Carnival. It didn't quite live up to the hype I expected. Debra
  18. Thanks for the pics. My husband and I sailed on the Sovereign in September 2001. It was our first cruise and we had a great time. CocoCay is one of the most relaxing islands I've ever visited. Debra
  19. Thanks for the response and the welcome. We're scheduled to visit Grand Cayman during the first week in December with Carnival. Hopefully the island will be in "ship-shape" by then.
  20. I know that Grand Cayman was wrecked quite a bit from the recent hurricanes. Does anyone know if cruise ships have resumed docking there yet?
  21. Thanks for the info. It will be our first time out of Tampa, John. We're staying at a small motel on Treasure Island at Johns Pass. We're from Florida originally, so it will be nice to enjoy a couple of days there before we depart. Dan, our two previous cruises were on RC and Celebriy, so I'm pretty sure that Carnival won't be as "grand" as the others, but we traveled on the others with friends, so I know we'll enjoy ourselves. If you can't find a party, just bring one with you.
  22. My husband and I, along with a very large group of friends, are booked on the Carnival Inspiration sailing out of Tampa on December 6, 2004. This will be our third cruise and the first time on Carnival. I haven't seen as much written on the Inspiration as I have other Carnival ships. Can anyone give me a little info on her? I know she's an older ship but I believe she's recently had some touching up done. Am I correct? Thanks.
