  1. Back to back with the January 15 cruise, I assume? Awesome! 😀
  2. Hey - that's my birthday, and what a great weekend escape that would be. Just maybe ... 🤔😊
  3. Would love to, it sounds amazing! But our Crazies Viking cruise is eating up my budget.🤣
  4. She’s adorable! And a horror movie - wow! 👍 She could be another Jamie Lee Curtis, who got her big break in a horror flick! That’s awesome, and as horror movies scare me, too, hopefully I’ll open one eye to catch her!😄
  5. Welcome, and thanks for sharing. Your tour sounds amazing! You mention an interest in Greece. A few of us here are cruising Viking Ocean to the Mediterranean from Athens to Venice, including Greece and Croatia, in May of 2021. You should join us! 🙂🛳 Check out the info here:
  6. Sorry to hear about the bronchitis, Keith. What a nasty way to end a cruise.😕 I had it too for 3 weeks after Christmas, and so many I know are just getting over it. No fun! It’s probably a good thing that you canceled your upcoming cruise while your stepdad deals with health issues. He’ll need family and friends nearby to help him through. How exciting for your granddaughter! Let me know when and what show so I can look for her.🙂
  7. @KeithnRita A very belated WELCOME BACK from your most recent cruise on Carnival Glory. I follow your amazing journeys on FB, of course, but just wanted to pop in and say I hope it was awesome! Feel free to post a few pics or a few words about your experience. Can’t wait to see where you’re headed next!🛳🙂🏖
  8. @Ginnywop1 Wishing you and your group sunny skies and calm seas as you sail away on Carnival Horizon next week!🛳😎🏖 Be sure to tell us all about it when you return!
  9. Desperate situations call for desperate measures!😄 Other reports mentioned they ordered 2 cases, and this was just the first drop. Cheers!😎👍🛳🍷🍷🍷🍷
  10. Congratulations on your upcoming cruise. My advice is to keep updated on the cruise line alerts and the CDC Coronavirus website, and don’t let the media reports scare you. You’re in the penalty phase of your booking now, so ask yourself can you tolerate the money you may lose if you cancel. I am cruising in March, too (Baja, Mexico), although I don’t have kids traveling with me to worry about. I plan on going, taking all the necessary precautions, and will hope for the best. With all the many, many ships sailing without issue, chances are good that you’ll be fine. But it would all depend on your comfort level, and only you can make that decision.🙂
  11. People seem to love them or hate them. Cruisers are attracted to their low prices. Complaints revolve around their slow service in the dining rooms, unfriendly staff, and terrible customer service from the MSC phone reps. They also need to improve their technology. From a TA point of view (my own observations), their booking system and guest invoices are convoluted and not user friendly. To be fair, the unfriendly staff reports could be based on the fact that they are a European cruise line with European customs, and the staff may simply be following their ways of not bothering the clients unless requested. Same thing with dining. European meals take hours and they are not rushed, and the cruise ships, at least the ones in Europe, tend to follow this trend. I do understand that the ships that are home ported in the US do appeal to the US way of cruising and are making improvements in some areas. I have clients cruising them in a week, and I’ll follow up with a report.
  12. Oh what the heck, I’ll take the $240,000 owner’s suite. If I could afford a luxury world cruise, why not go for it all!
  13. I’m glad to hear the man was okay. It’s fortunate that the cruise lines can rely on airlifts to transport passengers in distress. It also stresses the importance of travel insurance with med evac included. Medical evacuation from ship to shore can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars, so be sure to consider a plan with good med evac coverage.🙂
  14. MSC has been growing in popularity over the last few years, thanks to the Seaside arriving in the US and their attractive pricing. But 6,761 passengers? How big is big enough? Really, bigger isn’t always better.
  15. I give these crew members a lot of credit. I can’t imagine being far away from home for months at a time without seeing my family. Crew that I’ve spoken with rely on FaceTime and Skype to keep in touch. The waitress that said Sleeping Pills? How does she wake up and go to work without being groggy? I would tell her to replace them with an eye mask and earplugs.🙂
