  3. Hubby and I are laughing as this was almost complete when we were there last month. I thought it was just a lil extra playground/play area for the kids. I cant believe they are charging for this. Ive seen bigger and better play areas at your basic community pools at home. Of course I would be one of those suckers and pay the $5.00 since its positioned so that "ALL" children will see it as you approach the beach area. I can see ALL those children now....wow !!!
  4. After having my 1st cruise on RCCL a few weeks ago and doing 5 others on all Carnival Ships it is our desire to go back to Carnival. Depending on your preference is the only true way of taking a chance on what might be best for you. I felt as tho the RCCL was a tad bit on the older side and more family orientated. I definately would NOT go on a cruise with them if I didnt have my children with me. We went 2 weeks before spring break and every day I saw at least 15 children in each of the hot tubs all the time. They did however have an "adult pool and hot tub"...always full tho. One of the camp conselors told us they expect anywhere from 800-1000 children on spring break cruises. WOW! We missed the lil shows/performances by the waiters when they serve you. They didnt do any of those on the VOS cruise we were on and we enjoyed them on all the Carnival cruises. All in all..........back to Carnival we go after all thats why they are called the "fun ships".....

  16. We went and bought all 4 of us our new Patriot Jerseys. My littlest looks so darn cute in hers. We are so excited for Super Bowl on the Voyager. We just pray there are no malfunctions in the ships sattelite systems.....Go Pats!!!
  17. outhouse..........porta potty
  18. Awesome.....yup all I need is the audio and digital inputs....Guess I drag the lappy along..........thanks for making my mind up for me ...lol
  19. Since it has been 7 year since we cruised Im sure technology has improved on the ships. I am curious tho as if the televisions have front or back port holes for hooking up equipment? As in a laptop to be used as a dvd player. Still trying to decide if to bring it or not as we wont be using it to get on-line but rather for entertainment for the kids. Trying to weigh the pros and cons of carrying it thru and dealing with the airports and such. I know if I take it I will say " I should have left it at home" I dont take it I will say " I knew I should have brought it" LOL ....
  20. disadvantage.......unfair
  21. Here is something Ive read alot about. We had never heard or thought of tipping any time other then what they suggest. Anyone tip 1/2 the first night of the cruise and then depending on service the other 1/2 or more if deserved?? Also, what about the counselors in the kids adventure camp on RCI. So many different opinions on tipping them or not. Some say no that they would consider it offensive. Others say they are worthy if they are taking care of your children so Im feeling this way about it.....Thanks!!! p.s. Ive got the " 3 days before vacation I cant sleep thing going on"
  22. Its 15 degrees here now........a heat spell considering its been below zero for about 2 weeks now..........thanks for the offer Jeff....Be there Thursday LOL
